This seems like a thread that should probably exist.

Currently playing as Teyr Greywing on Primal with several other Exalted players in the FC, almost exclusively as Bard. Hyped as hell for Endwalker but was a little disappointed by 5.5

5.5 spoilers:

I thought the MSQ was one of the weaker patches and as cool as the dungeon was the fight with Lunar Bahamut felt a little underwhelming after so much busy work to free Tiamat.

Diamond weapon was a really original fight but that entire storyline is held back a little by Gaius' adopted kids being relentlessly dumb. But it still manages to really do it's job for me of rehabilitating Gaius into a cool anti-villain who's probably one of the most compelling figures in the game now.


Being on Playstation I was also really enthused for the PS5 version, and it's great, but whoever came up with the new trophy list for it is pretty evil. It's got things like completing 2000 dungeons/trials, 3000 FATEs and gathering 8000 collectables on there. Some of these are going to literally take me years to complete 😆

Also, anyone who says glamour is the true end game isn't setting their sights high enough. Housing is where it's really at 😄

I think part of what I like the most in FF14, especially in how it might relate to Exalted, is the era thing going on. This fits in quite well in 3e where the idea is that the First Age isn't some single monolithic era. That different places and cultures had their own unique styles and approaches rather than just one thing. Something definitely that the FA seemed to go for only one kind of aesthetic in the 2e material.
