    I'd come back for BLU, but not like that.

    I like that chaos is a reskinned color swap sephirot. We've hit the end game for content design bois.

    There haven't been many monsters with new skeletons/animations in stormblood. If you look closely just about everything is a reskin. Even the more impressive things like Pazuzu (Diabolos) and Louhi (Cruise Chaser)... the armor sets have almost all been rearrangements of existing gear too. Still can't believe they didn't make a unique set for the MHW collab and instead just modified some high allagan gear.

    The longer this game goes on the less and less work they actually do. Slower content cycles, less unique content. It keeps getting worse and worse but people will keep slurping the diarrhea smoothie like it's chocolate.

    3.0 raids weren't any better in the skeleton recycling department, especially with regards to goblins.

    all of Binding Coil used FFXII/FFXIII models, and Twintania was a reskin
    Rafflesia was a... rafflesia
    Melusine and her adds reused FFXI models
    The Avatar was a reskinned treant
    Imdugud was a reskinned coeurl
    Kaliya was a reskinned hydra
    Phoenix reused the FFXII Phoenix skeleton with a new model/skin
    Living Liquid was a reskinned Glaslya Labolas
    Ratfinx, Quickthinx, Lamebrix were reskinned goblins
    Refurbisher was a reskinned/modified p2-Sephirot
    Midan robots (except Onslaughter and Brute Justice) all shared the same model
    EDDs are reskinned Estinien-Nidhoggs

    but now, in Stormblood specifically, the devs are being lazy with their monster design, yeeep
    (Suzaku does look like the laziest trial up to date tho unless there's a surprise new model in the final phase)


    also the only credible source for leaks so far (Blufever on gamefaqs) hasn't mentioned anything about BLU being Eureka only, so unless someone can post a source I'm going to say this is similar to that one time someone around here thought Mobius screenshots counted as a Ultimate Ultima leak

    super late edit: couple people mentioned minor additions/inaccuracies, added them/fixed them in the list because why not

    Refurbisher being a reskin actually blew my mind a little lol

    Guess the Omega leak is now confirmed: trailer shows Chaos, Midgarsormr and Omega as raid bosses. Only missing Adam and Eve but that's supposed to be a surprise. And BLU as a new job I guess, hope it's good.

    I like how the cutscene when you become a BLU in XI...

    Spoiler: show
    (i.e. blacking out in the throne room, blinky eyes, etc.)


    ...is basically recreated in this trailer. I know it isn't actually linked at all and it's just subliminal, but still.

    I can say this though, for all their failings with actually creating the game, SE is good at two things: music and trailers.

    I think we may start seeing hints at BLU so it wouldn't surprise me at all. Alphinaud becoming a Blue Mage like Alisaie for RDM is a possibility, especially if the leak is 100% correct and BLU uses Primal moves on top of classic Blue Magic abilities. Also gunblade tank and Dancer makes this upcoming expansion much more interesting to me.. I can only hope Dancer is the healer and it's unique.

    I probably said that before, but if Dancer gets added I need it to have an armor like AF1 from 11, because I love that set irrationally (female version of course, don't care about male )

    I guess it's appropriate for Odin to show up again in an XI inspired area.

    We never really defeated him....the sword went missing in some post MSQ optional dialogue when talking to Urianger sometime before HW, but nobody cared. Odin has existed since FF3, so I wouldn't necessarily say he's shown only because this is an FFXI inspired era.

    He's pretty much responsible for everything that happens in XI though, it's his biggest story role in the entire series.
    I also know we never defeated him, there was a cutscene showing someone running off with the sword (whcih is the actual Primal). I'm glad he's showing up again honestly, he's been neglected way too much in XIV.

    He's called an Eikon. We still do not know the difference between Eikon and Primals. Garleans call all Primals "Eikons" because that was a term the Allags use and the Garleans think it is a very civilized thing to use a word by an ancient civilization. However the Ascian kid with the crazy long name said that the Garleans are mistaken and the entities called Eikons differ from Primals.

    Minus the resolution of that ground effect texture. Yikes. It's 2018 and there's still no framework in place for them to just start offering higher resolution texture assets over 'standard' ones as a player choice, at least for content going forward.
