FFXIV Stormblood Director Apologizes for Troubled Launch

The latest expansion for MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV, Stormblood, has just launched and, as expected, the game saw a large influx of both new and returning players. As a result, logging into the game has not been easy as servers (called Worlds) have been at full capacity since the expansion launched, with the login queue going up to as high as 5,000 players. In response, FFXIV Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida has gone on the game’s website to issue an apology for the login problems players are experiencing. Yoshida explains that the player limit for Worlds is placed to prevent them from crashing. Yoshida also reveals that the Worlds experiencing the highest traffic include: Japan Data CenterTonberryBahamut North America Data CenterBalmungGilgameshLeviathan Europe Data CenterRagnarokOdinCerberusMoogleShiva Yoshida suggests that players who want to login should stay in their spot in the queue as they will be able to login quicker compared to those who decide to cancel and restart the queue. He also reveals that the studio is working on ways to address the player capacity. We are continuing to assess and work on ways we can increase the number of players that are able to log in READ FULL STORY AT…

Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood Progress Report: Lost Connections

GIF Since Final Fantasy XIV’s Stormblood expansion launched in early access on Friday morning, I’ve leveled a Red Mage from 50 to 60 and taken my first steps into the city state of Ala Mhigo. Imagine what I could have accomplished had the servers been anywhere near stable! While the crux of the Stormblood expansion involves characters venturing into Ala Mhigo and the Asian-inspired Doma with the intention to free them from the oppression of the Garlean Empire, I spent precious little time in the new areas. This was mainly due to the fact that one of the major progression quests for the new lands was nearly impossible to complete for the first two and a half days of early access. When a special cinematic solo quest begins, the game creates a special instance just for the player doing the quest. Slammed with players new and old all attempting to do the quest at once, the game’s servers were having trouble creating new instances, leading to players lining up or gathering around the quest giver, desperately trying to move on. Some players made it through. Others were kicked back to the same area READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

How To Unlock Red Mage And Samurai Jobs In Final Fantasy XIV

The Stormblood expansion for Final Fantasy XIV introduces two new jobs to the massively multiplayer RPG—Red Mage and Samurai. To access them you don’t have to rush through days of story quests and journey to new lands. You just have to be level 50 and talk to the right people. Rather than lock the new jobs away in the expansion’s new lands, which can only be accessed by players who’ve reached level 60 and completed the main story, both of Stormblood’s new additions are accessed via quests found in Ul’dah, one of the game’s three starting cities. Any character level 50 or above can start down the path to becoming a Red Mage or Samurai. The process is pretty painless. Red Mage The quest to take the red begins in the Steps of Thal area of Ul’dah, just inside the Gate of Thal. A distraught young girl seeks help rescuing her sister from a band of kidnappers. Sounds like a job for whatever random adventurer happens along. The kidnappers haven’t gotten far. Step outside the Gate of Thal and you’re a 10 second run to where a confrontation is going down. Who’s the guy READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
