No idea lmao. Looks too small compared to S3 (i wouldn't like them to change Primordus' size, but given how they did it with Kralkatorrik, I imagine he will look smaller in a cutscene?).

Who knows, maybe it's Primordus' current top Lieutenant and if Braham defeats it, he becomes the champion lol.

I would like to hear Primordus' voice though if that's him.

Thf i wouldnt mind making him smaller, sinc ehe was absolutely massive in s3 and ever getting the full body of that head was unrealistic.

Also his se3 design compaired to his gw1 looks derpy.

@Nexxus.5347 said:What happen to the saga... you started so strong... who thought is was ok to drop the ball on living world... Expansion level content in living world we were told... this is not expansion level content. Not even an epilogue map. Epilogue... Get on an airship. go to Cantha. Yawn... back to Final Fantasy 14.

The layoffs happened. S5+ was originally planned to be much bigger, with them originally talking about it playing out over a couple of years and having no plans for another expansion. Datamining even suggested new hero challenges for example, meaning new elites. Months after the layoffs and shortly after the prologue released, the guy in charge, who was also the one pushing S5, quit, and then a few months later they announce an expansion. This final episode is what it is because the live team is operating on minimal resources while everyone else is attempting to rush out an expansion in practically half their usual time.

They layoffs had lottle to do since they happened before the announcement, but you are right everyone is likely on eod at this point.

Also im not sure about rushing an expac, pof was 16-18 months of development and it came at around a 2 year mark since hot.Edo was announced in early 2020 and there was bound to be a certain lvl of development at oeast a couple of months before that.

Say there could be a small drought of 4-5 months after april that puts the release in late q3 possibly early q4 of 2021 thats like 16 or so konths of dev time.

The way things are going, I might not be able to complete the last 2, let alone the last one, in the line, as there don't seem to be enough options outside of the "spend a lot of money buying weapons" or "do things in super challenge mode" choices.

I've gotten used to the 8 raid points being the only ones I can't get, and that seemed like an easy 'line in the sand' for me to accept. I'd be discouraged if the new normal is to let casual folks fail because they don't want to participate in non-public style content.

I'll be facing this for the first time as well. I do have the 8 raid masteries, and it's not like I'm utterly incapable of grinding out a few more Saga mastery points, but... I don't want to do Cold War 20 times, nor do I want to spend all day loitering in Grothmar for 5 RNG boss spawns.

I've actually decided to stop thinking hard or trying to reflect deeply on the game, as doing so tends to rapidly deflate my excitement for EoD. Since I've decided to buy EoD anyways (thanks to the sunk cost fallacy), I want to at least feel better about it in the run-up to release.

Braham will kill Ryland, who is the proxy for Jormag. He will get his fire magic (Primordus) bow back.

Also, Aurene will combine Primordus and Jormag into one balanced dragon. If the light prism dragon can refract the magical spectrum then couldn’t she also combine two magical wavelengths / attunements?

I am enjoying the lore and DRMs but do admit I don’t find them repayable once the easy goals are achieved

@Grand Marshal.4098 said:We may get more content than the previous patch I suppose. The reference to the Dominion of Winds took me by surprise

How so? We knew the Tengu would be one of the factions that will join us in the fight.

and I wish we would get a map there, instead of a possible DRM. Meh

Well, the Poultry Protector achievement suggests Caledon Forest and Bloodtide Coast, so I doubt we will be seeing anything of the DotW's inner sanctum.

So Braham is rly gonna be Primordus' champion or try to speak to him?

I seriously doubt it. He basically says in the trailer that all the Elder Dragons have to die.

This is the first time it's been referenced since core! Not saying we will, it's just an interesting thought that if the saga proceeded normally, we may have actually gotten it in some capacity.

and I wish we would get a map there, instead of a possible DRM. Meh

Can't see there being enough. I'm sitting on 5 points atm, with 3 inside the remaining DRM's and maybe 1 for completing the chapter. Despite having every point outside raids/CM's/weapon sets (I even fluked the Koda one cos someone showed up right at the end of banner planting), I'll still be 3 short. Therefore it's impossible to complete the track without having 1000's of gold (for weapon sets) or raid-level meta builds with pixel-perfect dodging that requires 2000 fps and zero latency to pull off. (for raids/DRM challenge modes)

Yeah, agreed. That "Norn of Prophecy" nonsense is ridiculous. Braham has never behaved in a way that would make you buy that role from him.
