    I dunno, I'd happy raid Mako Reactor #1, example:

    MPs as trash mob
    A moderate size sweeper as first boss
    Some more robots as trash
    A BEHEMOTH BOSS (courtesy of Crisis Core)
    Some more mixed trash
    omfg GUARD MECHA TURBO SCORPION as last boss
    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.

    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'm wondering how the procedure of these FATEs will be, considering the screencaps shows they're happening in Southern Thanalan, Corethas, and Mor Dhona.

    Can't be excited for this due to how crowded FATEs are in game. Odin and Behemoth are terrible and a complete waste of time until they fix them. Losing target 90% of the time + unable to actually even play my job properly due to none of my procs even being useable makes them quite annoying. Oh, and then ending up with Bronze or Silver anyways after being there the whole time and doing everything I possibly can. Really hope they are working on fixing that before actually introducing these.

    Already posted that they were implementing a solution for Behemoth and Odin, which will hopefully be extended to everything.

    It was also said somewhere that there would be a quest (chain) involving Lightning. Does anyone have a link to the source of that?

    They should all be instanced fights. Fates are a horrible thing.

    They mentioned since before beta that they would keep an eye on FATEs and would be prepared to subdivide participants into separate instances of the FATEs depending on population if it becomes necessary... so I imagine they might be finally going through with it because, good lord, it is necessary.

    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.

    I surrender to this. 10/10

    Anyone notice Lightning pulling out a machine gun type weapon and shooting? I'm sure she never had such an attack in the original game. (@:33)

    It's just her sword in its gun mode.
