Get the fuck out the zone in 10 mins
Optional secret boss SOLDIER1stCLASS not sephiroth (gotta defeat it within the same 10 mins too)
Sounds pretty good to me, and exciting/frantic. I'm a sucker for stuff like this.
I'd be fine with cross-game stuff if they work it into the plot well, like some sort of temporal/dimensional dungeon with bosses from other games (I sort of assumed Crystal Tower would be like this). But I'm not sure if I want to see a bunch of Lightning, Snow, and possibly others running around in the open world.
Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude!! Kefka final boss mode with Dancing Mad on blast let's do eeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!
A shame this type of shit will be fates with 5,000 people spamming 1 button. Remember how cool the Behe fight looked right before release? Doing it in game is terrible. I STILL WANT THE GEAR
I know it would be completely unfair to males but I want to be a Snowcoat MNK.
I'm wondering how the procedure of these FATEs will be, considering the screencaps shows they're happening in Southern Thanalan, Corethas, and Mor Dhona.
They should all be instanced fights. Fates are a horrible thing.
Regarding the quest-line, you can see in the video that there's a cutscene or two involving her, so I think it's a given.
The FATE fixes are specific to Behe/Odin, and don't appear to be anything fancy.
FFXIV: ARR has been designed with a system to display the appropriate number of characters while maintaining non-laggy conditions even when there are a large amount of players centralized in a location. However, even though this system is working, for these two FATE there is an issue where Odin and Behemoth are not being displayed. In order to resolve this issue, we'll be putting in a separate system specifically for these two FATE, and addressing it so the enemies are displayed properly even during times of congestion.
...and like mioko said, I think it's pretty clear that this XIII crossover will be a line of quests, not a FATE. Hopefully that means it won't be a limited-time thing either.
Also, in case anyone missed it during the 2nd benchmark fiasco where they included a bunch of data they shouldn't have... Unless things have changed since then, the gear rewards are lv13. The armor is a single piece that occupies body/hands/legs/feet (just like the odin body), males get Snow's cloak, females get Lightning's outfit, and theres one weapon for each class (curious how that will be handled if this is indeed a questline). I don't remember if the weapons were lv13, but they probably were.
This was first teased back in the beginning of July.
