Final Fantasy fans should get excited as the first expansion pack to FFXIV, Heavensward, will be released on 23 June 2015. The latest expansion brings a lot to the table and has been receiving a lot of hype, as it nears its release date. Here are the top 3 reasons to be enthusiastic about the latest expansion:
New Areas and Flying Mounts
Heavensward lets players explore Dravania, which offers a unique spin on regular woodland zones because of the large forest that contains trees with multiple trunks. In addition to this, players can travel to Coerthas Western Highlands, Foundation and The Pillars. New flying mounts such as airships, dragons and flying Chocobos, enable players to travel three times faster than before.
New Weapons and Items
The latest expansion adds a wide variety of new weapons, gear and items, which can be bought using FFXIV gil. If you don’t have enough gils, you can buy FFXIV gil safely online, as multiple websites have cheap FFXIV gil for sale. New gear is also available for crafting professions such as miners, botanists, fishermen and more.
A New Race
Square Enix is expanding the amount of races that players can choose from, by adding the Au Ra. The Au Ra is similar looking to an existing race called Miqo’te, but it has a scaly dragon-like skin and two horns on the sides of their heads.
These reasons, along with other features, make the expansion an interesting update enhancing the FFXIV experience. The developers hope this will take the MMO game to new heights, and with what we have seen so far, it certainly looks this will happen.
