    When you have Yda standing out in the day around the CS from last patch you can turn the camera so that you get a glimpse of the face behind the mask from underneath, it looks a fair bit like blue eyes and all that jazz.

    aboard an airship with Lucia, when she divulged that she was Garlean, she also mentioned Livia was her sister

    Eda has nothing to do with any of that

    Wouldn't put a lot of faith in what she looks like under the mask. Could just be a generic Hyur because they have no reason to make a special face model for someone wearing a mask.

    Oh c'mon lol. Why would they put a generic Hyur face in this cutscene?

    Yda's current face, thanks to .dat mining awhile back of someone on reddit.

    I'm not saying it is or isn't. I'm saying you definitely shouldn't assume one or the other because I guarantee the models they use in cutscenes are not the ones you see standing around in-game, as illustrated by several of the funnier ones where someone's eyes (usually lalafel) are popping out of their head. The dat mined Yda's eyes don't even look like the same shape/style as Yda's in the 2.55 cutscene.

    My argument is simply that you're comparing a face in a pre-rendered teaser trailer to a face we've never actually been intentionally shown in-game. That's a flimsy foundation for speculation.

    It is intentionally shown in that cutscene and that's in-game! How can you possibly deny the similarities between the two? Why the hell is a data mined face more relevant to this discussion than a cutscene where they intentionally teased her face? I'm comparing the only time we've had the chance to look at Yda behind the mask to this "new" character and they are incredibly similar. One being CG makes it less clear obviously.

    Technically you could always look at Yda's face if you know how to angle it at certain times she's in the overworld. Considering yoshida said we'll meet said chick in 3.5 story and Yda is supposed to be returning about then in the story it would make sense if they are the same, but that's largely why I hate teasers for XIV because trying to "avoid spoilers" then tossing out stuff that could potentially be a spoiler just confuses things lol.

    If blonde hair and one blue eye are all it takes for you to call them incredibly similar I don't know else what to say.

    Thing is, the side people saying it's not her have little more to go on other than saying it isn't, no tattoo, or timing possibly not lining up. The last two can easily be waved away by story shenanigans/flashbacks. SE kinda has a bad habit of making the obvious choice in situations like this, though, so at this point we're really just a bunch of nerds trying to puff our chests claiming who's righterer.

    At this point, I'm more inclined to say it either is her or a relative. Of all the visual alternatives SE could've run with, they chose these either to implicitly stir controversy or be totally lame--sorta like how we guessed what Shiva was. People further seeing dancer instead of monk might also be a bit too desperate hoping for something that isn't there.

    Not to mention the MNK skills. Then add in how different the WoL looks in this trailer compared to the last ones and you can easily bet this is Yda.

    Not to mention we need a way to get into the Ala Mhigan ranks and somehow I think the 'I'm the warrior of light' role doesn't work very well in the beginning of expansions. We need our inside man/woman.

    Also considering the hundreds of photos that got taken of the BG Poutine crew by the fans and SE staff I'm still surprised that this is the only one that surfaced on the interwebs:
