Throughout the Endwalker media tour preview occasion, creators and press got entry to a number of new areas that might be accessible upon the Last Fantasy 14 enlargement’s launch. Particularly, we may discover Thavnair, Garlemald, and the brand new participant base, New Sharlayan.
We had loads of time to discover these new areas and see what was in retailer for us. In truth, we have been just about inspired to take action. Notably, these areas have been just about “low-level,” as in accessible by stage 63 characters. Throughout a presentation, director Naoki Yoshida shared that there might be six such areas in complete.
Now that we’re in a position to share our findings, right here’s a fast preview of every of the brand new FFXIV areas we have been permitted to wander in.
A location solely talked about and alluded to for a number of expansions, even via the Dancer job storyline, Thavnair appears to take affect from fairly a number of South Asian and Center Japanese cultures.
Yedlihmad, judging by the contextual hints I discovered, will probably be the place the Warrior of Gentle and their companions disembark upon reaching Thavnair.
The Nice Work, one of many three main aetheryte sanctuaries in Thavnair, will lie proper by the primary new dungeon of the enlargement.
Palaka’s Stand additionally seems to be a cease alongside your journey via this attractive area, bearing one more aetheryte, and a small, quaint village (or commerce cease?) at that.
For all of the hype that’s been gathered, chances are you’ll be shocked to be taught that Garlemald gained’t be, frankly, that huge of an space. Nonetheless, for its small measurement, it packs fairly a little bit of world-building. Already, we are able to see the town itself resembles a contemporary one; wandering all through, I discovered automobiles, parks, and lots extra. Seems, regular folks in an evil empire nonetheless need regular issues. Unhappy to say, I didn’t discover the Garlean DMV.
Below the town is Tertium, which is what can solely be assumed to be a former practice station. There’s additionally one other deserted one exterior the town. Right here, refugees seem to catch their breath.
Out within the fields, an enormous oil rig, for what I assume is ceruleum, brings power into the town. Given Garleans can’t solid magic, they want all of the power they’ll get.
And eventually, it seems the Grand Alliance has taken maintain of a tiny settlement, dubbing it Camp Damaged Glass.
Lastly, welcome to Previous Sharlayan! The Aetheryte Plaza sits proper above the Scholar’s Harbor to greet you into the town correct, proper in the course of all of the essential metropolis affair elements (and conveniently near a residential district).
Sure, this fountain, named “The Scholar,” does simply preserve going. Sadly for you Group Posers on the market, that is the very best angle I may handle of it, so handle your expectations.
The Noumemon is a beautiful, seemingly unending library that was hinted at through the Endwalker trailer. Hopefully we discover one thing helpful right here…
Lastly, to finish the tour, a shock: That is truly the property of the Leveilleur household. The one NPCs that I discovered didn’t reveal a lot plot, however you may enter it and discover the first halls of the primary and second flooring. What might be be visiting for?
We have now a fuller video tour accessible of Previous Sharlayan, together with some extra attractive interiors!
This text is predicated on play of an in-development construct of FINAL FANTASY XIV: Endwalker, and content material within the ultimate model is topic to alter.
