    I had thought they had gotten rid of needing a party for FC crafting and made the Rdm changes already but both are coming in this update +_+

    I'm pretty excited about the new relic questline being a continuation to the Return to Ivalice plot.

    It all looks super good as usual with this expansion. The only thing I wish they would do a little different is the raid/trial fights cause they're still kinda ho-hum mechanically but I'm still glad they're working on streamlining other parts of the game. I finally actually enjoy crafting instead of looking at it like a chore. (Yes they had to dumb it down to my level first lol).

    Also, the models for the new Eden Primals are pretty dope. Spoilers for those that... don't watch the trailer and want to be surprised I guess?

    Spoiler: show


    I am surprised Garuda+Ifrit are together, but they both look great. Garuda like a mash-up of XIV+XV Garuda which makes sense, Ifrit waaaay more demonic looking, kind of Mouth of Sauron on crack vibes lol.

    Ramuh being a sexy Odin mixed with Ixion is just lulz. I vaguely remember people predicting that they'd be together during his fight in some capacity

    I just want my Viera to have new hairstyles and the ability to wear helmets but I'm not super pressed about it.

    Quick takes on recent Famitsu interview. A good amount of the stuff that might have been "new" in this interview was revealed with the preliminary patch notes, so I think most of the other main points are below.

    Edit: Pretty good summary of everything already on Reddit
    https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comme..._is_ifrit_and/

    Story
    -Less teasing, and lots of big reveals this time around (references the lore dumps in the middle sections of Shadowbringers for an analogy).
    -Long, interesting scenario - not specifically lengthy cutscenes, but length of the experience.
    -Going deep in the Hydaelyn/Zodiark lore.
    -Will learn a lot more about the Ascians/ancients from the original world.
    -Will find out a lot more about Elidibus and his motivations/goals.
    -Will be the first of two climaxes of the Shadowbringers scenario, with 5.3 being the follow-up.

    Ruby Weapon
    -Gaius/Estinien Garlemald scenario is splintering off as a side quest in the "Werlyt" series, which will include the new "Weapon Series" of trials.
    -Developed by a new battle designer, lots of new mechanics.
    -Extreme version has two entirely distinct phases
    -Noticeably harder than Hades.

    Raid
    -Raid will be noticeably more difficult than 5.0.
    -Monster HP was about 10% lower than usual in Eden's Gate. DPS checks considerably tighter this time, back to usual for savage.
    -3rd and 4th fights will be a "return to form" of sorts, worthy of the "savage" name.
    -First fight is Ramuh, second is Garuda/Ifrit (at the same time). Third fight is something new (probably the birds thing from the trailer?). Fourth fight isn't in the trailer at all, and is the flashiest of the four.

    Augmented Equipment
    -Entirely new content series for augmenting equipment like Eureka.
    -Starts in 5.25, then in 5.35, 5.45, 5.55
    -5.25 is just a basic start, will be fairly straightforward to get the starting point equipment
    -5.35 will be a big step up with an entirely new field area with a new numerical stat (think elemental level from Eureka, except something new).
    -Customization starts in 5.35
    -Dev cost is at least as high, if not higher, than Eureka was

    Crafting
    -High level crafting for raid gear, etc., will be about the same difficulty as usual, though macros will need to be tweaked for the few ability changes.

    Misc
    -Umbrellas will be a new category of glamour stuff to get (think mounts, minions, etc.). Adding two or three at this time, and will be more in the future.
    -DR Ex will just be the last two released dungeons moving forward

    Eureka dev cost was high? It seemed like fairly basic content, at least from a design perspective.

    They probably spaghetti'd the elemental damage and resistance into the game and pagos probably added further complications which is why they didn't really change the formula up much other than adding light.. and then finally figuring out how to really expand on the shit for duty actions that actually made the content tolerable.

    Well, it was also something outside their usual content template

    I like that there is Chrono Trigger music in this patch, Magus's Theme.
