Final Fantasy XIV

Venture forth and continue the main scenario

After a thousand years of bloodshed and sorrow, the shade of Nidhogg, rage incarnate, fell at last to the Warrior of Light. So it was that the Dragonsong War drew to a close, and the survivors, bloodied but unbowed, could begin to pick up the pieces. A new day dawns in Ishgard, and her champions may rest easy ─ if only for a moment. For every ending marks a new beginning.

Looking for practice before you head into the Feast, or maybe just a quick scrap with your friends? Then you’ll want to head to the new dueling arena at the Wolves’ Den Pier. As this is a non-instanced area, the only thing you need is a friend ─ or foe ─ willing to accept your challenge.

They’ll have front row seats with the new spectator mode! Whether you’re in the thick of the action or spectating from the sidelines, you’re sure to have fun with these new PvP options.

siiigh….this looks so good but I don’t have time…and stupid me have 2 months left on my 6 month sub :(

The Heavensward expansion ruined this game for both of us. High level areas were ‘dungeon/primal locked’ by the story quests – unlike the previous 50 levels/areas where you could just run through the dangerous bits to get to the place you wanted.

We enjoy fighting, hunting, public events, exploring, fishing, etc., but not ridiculous dungeons (Fighting a book on ice, anyone?). Just want those thinking of buying the expansion to realise that they can’t play the new part of the game the same way as the main game worked.

spent 9 months (including getting all DoL/DoH to 50+, and all other classes to 25+) until I got any taste of Heavensward outside of making an Au Ra character. I find locking Heavensward content behind MSQ quite a good move. the game actually feels refreshed having entered the expansion. I’d certainly consider an expansion reshuffling things you are used to a good thing. you already pay subscription for minor improvements…

Sounds more to me that you are a rushy bad player.
