Dawntrail XIV plot

So let me get this right, this stupid hrothgar b***h wants us to sail to Tural, stop her miqote brother from ascending to the throne so he doesnt start waging war on neighbors?

Are we really getting another modern western trope of "Now that I have won the throne, the first thing I will do is abolish the throne." that Aymeric already effectively did after Heavensward? If so the story beats are getting fricking lame.

    I don't think they're gonna do that and I really hope they don't, but it's certainly a possibility. I think what will actually happen is that they'll make it have two rulers with Wuk and Erenville since Gulool Ja Ja has two heads and each head is actually a different person (in FFXI and Wanderer's Palace HM the heads refer to each other as brothers).

    Tural feels conceptually very shallow. One of the neat things about XIV lore is that it did feel like it was written by a sweaty nerd. There was a certain depth and philosophical maturity to things. It was rarely grounded but people acted like people and, as a rule, avoided pure idealism. It knew when to get dry, it knew when to rely on suspension of disbelief, it knew when to show the rub of ideals interacting with reality.
    Tural, meanwhile, doesn't quite have that sweaty nerd quality. What we know about it so far is
    >the leader united a whole bunch of warring nations into one hyper-diverse melting pot
    >which loves and encourages the usage of foreigners directly meddling in its election system
    >which is a display of martial strength - in an anti-war based culture
    >oh by the way did we mention one of our last plotlines in the new world was about their sacred Oil-Be-Here place almost being stolen by foreign powers
    >he also, somehow, forced everyone to use esperanto-but-based-deliberately-on-foreign-languages
    >and this all just works (don't worry about it)
    Tural in isolation wouldn't be so bad but it feels out of place when compared to the rest of the city-states. Feels shallow and written entirely around one idea. A more 'XIV-y' Tural would have the happy compromise having a bit more rub with reality, and the presumption of equality almost leading to greater inequality.
    I'd like to see Tural be written with the same philosophical nuance as the Federation, namely fron TNG. Wherein maintaining the melting pot requires a certain amount of philosophical maturity and not just imposing your ideas on others.
    Now, it's very important to note that we haven't been there. Our only source is somebody who is obviously on the side of loving it. I imagine the entire expansion will be about seeing that rub in places. But I doubt they're going to backtrack on

      Well we don't know yet what the story is with Tural. We only know what a single character has told us who hasn't proved herself. There is almost no information about it, so I would say you might be right about everything but I'm going to wait until I've played through the Expansion before I want to fine tooth comb the lore behind it.

        Yeah, as noted we only really have a bias source. But they have given themselves a pretty small runway of ways to actually play with the concept. Looking at it from a realistic perspective, there's no earthly fricking way a global corporation is about to allow their newest expansion to be an intelligent and philosophically nuanced examination of the concept of Diversity is Our Strength, there's just too much room for misstep or misinterpretation. So they have a fairly limited space if what they can even do with it.

      yes, just like "the Scions will now go on separate ways", it's the main cast, we'll be separated for a total of one dungeon where they'll take an alternative route to the final boss while throwing some taunts, alisae will "kyaaa" while launching a big spell, Y'shtola will throw a sarcastic remark, then we'll fight the final boss, maybe a scion, then cutscene < reveal of the big bad < we are a team again, it's just a setup and the writers are one-trick ponies, it's nothing new

      Tural feels a little like Thavnair in that they aren't offering any good meaty flaws. Thavnair you could make an exception for because it had split focus + it was the primary victim of the end of the fricking world, but Tural does come across like it's been designed by an overly sensitive type. It's a reason why I hate native Expys in fiction as they always have to be handled with kiddy gloves else you get crucified.

          Which one? Outside of the scene you hate, all of his development has historically happened offscreen. Thancred may as well be a distinct new character each expansion for how much onscreen continuity he has. Killing him provides an emotional burst in one moment and chops off everything else. This is shortsighted and robs the rest of narrative of the chance for him to present the payoff of the thread he just resolved. His death would have been thematically flat and worthless.

            Oh frick off try hard. Thancred's character has nowhere to go. He could have retired with Ryne, but because Shadowbringers is isekaishit they couldn't do that because he would die. That would have been a satisfying ending to his character since Minfillia is gone and so much about Thancred is tied to her.

                To put this into perspective: G'raha had a good 1000 years and needed the entirety of the crystal tower and his life force to pull someone into another shard. However the spell was incredibly imprecise, so he grabbed the WoL's friends and managed only to drag their souls over, killing their physical bodies slowly. And in the end the WoL only arrived savely due to the travellers ward that the closest thing to a god we have encountered has cast on them.
                And she looks at that and goes "Yeah, I can do that without any of that BS, hold my tea."

                I don't think the echo had anything to really do with it, as the WoL has had their soul ripped from the bodies before in short bursts. What had us safely cross over to the First was finding the focus that the Exarch sent over to the Source in the ravine that allowed him to finally grab us whole

                She doesn't though, she had to use your ability to go to the first in order for her plan to work, and even then it still required the use of the crystal towers technology, a wholly unique and extreme set of circumstances to facilitate, and even then she still hasn't fully figured out a safe means of taking a full body to another shard besides the 13th.

                Reading the short story, nothing implies that its her mind hearing, which itself isn't even accurate as its sensing the intent of others, similar to Fordola who has minor clairvoyance by seeing the intent of attacks before the enemy can pull it off, much like Y'shtola can see aether being channeled.

                I feel like you're arguing semantics, as there effectively is no difference between sensing intent and using that to follow someone, and just tracking their aether, its all effectively aether and thus the same. Even towards the end of the chase, Krile fell down to one knee winded and had a echo flashback after exerting her powers the night before, showing she was using her echo abilities to track estinien and follow him no matter how far he jumped and ran away through the streets and canals.

                I'm not sure what that snippet is suppose to prove? Tataru thought Krile saw something spicy in her echo flashback, Krile is being coy about what she saw, in the same mischievous "don't kiss and tell" manner she takes with Alphinaud.

                >Orphaned as a child and taken in by Galuf Baldesion, founder of the eponymous Students of Baldesion, Krile was blessed with power of the Echo─though in her early years it seemed to her more a curse.

Seeing this, Galuf gave her a cat-eared hood, assuring her that her gift was not something to be bemoaned, and that it would one day prove a tremendous strength.

                Cool, that tracks with Fordola's resonance powers of seeing shifts in aether to determine actions before they happened.

                You're proving again that you have no reading comprehension at all. No, Krile isn't being coy about what she saw. What that snippet shows is that she actually saw nothing. She was faking it to trick Estinien into helping them, and then laughed about it with Tataru after the fact. STOP READING THE FRICKING FAN WIKI YOU STUPID MOTHERFRICKER. AND STOP WRITING IN IT TOO.

        People would have less of a problem if the game didn't constant put the characters into fatal scenarios and then hand wave their demises with some stupid bullshit. Y'shtola, by my count has died 3 times, Thancred died once. They killed everyone off in Endwalker and brought them back. They won't stop doing it. That's why people are saying just kill them off already. It cheapens the story because there are zero stakes. I know none of the characters will die. I think the only character in Endwalker who died was the fake Sandtrap man. That was it. Riveting.

            Nanamo's death wasn't a retcon or an asspull. It was always intended that way as the finale to the 1.0 ALC questline. The writers still fricked up because they left none of the information from that questline in ARR so newcomers could understand what was happening, but it wasn't a retcon.

              As a post-2.0 only player, I had no idea it was the finale to any questline whatsoever, so it felt like a complete asspull to me that cheapened the finale of ARR, which was so good that it unironically made up for all the dogshit filler that happens in those patch quests.
              It remains, however, as a warning sign for the future; their refusal to punish characters for taking stupid actions since has reduced them all immensely. Alphinaud has fallen off a fricking cliff from his peak in Heavensward, Estinien is like a three-note gag character getting hard carried by everyone remembering how good he was in HW, Yshtola rapidly oscillates between being the worst character in the entire game and half-decent, G'raha Tia went from the Exarch to a terrible gag character, and Thancred/Urianger both have never lived up to how good they were in Eden.
              I hope the game's writing improves, but it constantly makes horrible decisions that they proceed to triple down on. No amount of localization memes can fix inherent badposting.

                Yeah, that's where they fricked up. I don't blame anyone for thinking it was a retcon, but the whole thing was Lolorito trying to frick Teledji over for torturing and killing former Syndicate member Eolande. Eolande was a royalist so Teledji wanted her off the Syndicate, so he was making her son fall into comas with a special sleeping poison he had made. Lolorito didn't like that underhanded shit so he started making a cure for the poison. That poison is the same one Nanamo got. He was going for the poetic ending of fricking Teledji over with his own poison because he's still seething that he couldn't save Eolande.

            I know they have. The end of ARR to me was the highlight of the MSQ and with that retcon or choice to make it so she fell asleep instead, its been doing the same dumb shit ever since. It's why I don't understand how people can say it's a good story, let alone a good Final Fantasy story. There are never any stakes or tension. I enjoy the game, but I have zero interest in this new expansion when I know nothing interesting will actually happen.

              Secondary spotted. People don't die in FF. II and XVI are the noteable exceptions, maybe the ending of XV and Zero, but the vast majority of characters does not die in these games, especially party members.

              it implies that I see something wrong with it.
              Why don't you see anything wrong with it? Why should I feel any sense of stakes or care about the supposed threat when not only does nobody I care about fall victim to it, but they don't even come CLOSE to it? Nobody in the Scions or any other major character even comes close to turning Blapshemy. They don't even express cocnern over it at any point. THE CHARATERS THEMSELVES don't act like they feel threatened by it, on top of never actually dying to said threat, or even so much as getting a scratch (physically or emotionally).

              That, and the apocalypse is centered entirely in two zones, one is fricking Elephant India you only just met, the other is fricking Garlemald which was already in ruin anyway.

              Why even write a such a high-stake story if you don't have the balls to give it any impact? Be honest, you don't want compelling writing, you just want to watch the characters you like get paraded out on screen for you to basedface as they score endless W's with zero resitance.

                You do not actually enjoy fiction, you see FFXIV as an extension for your own narcissism as you self insert yourself onto your OC and get emotionally attached to specific characters because they fellate your character aka (you) nonstop and so you consume the story just for those characters.

                You do not actually appreciate storytelling in any meaningful way. You do not know what good writing is, you do not care about good writing. You care about watching whatever character you've emotionally attached yourself to being paraded out on screen to ssoyface at and tell you how awesome you are. You despise the concept of killing a character off becuase that you potentially mean killing your favorite waifu off, not because you believe it would harm the story in any way.

                Issue is simply nobody likes a bait and switch half-assing pussy. If you're going to have a character potentially die, they need to die. Or this can happen once. Once. 1. ONCE. When it has happened nearly three times with Yshtola or Thancred it starts to become a comical mockery.

                It's like how your stereotypical action movie will have that bit at the end where it seems like the hero(ine) dies for maybe 5 minutes, then they come back and are safe. Do it once and you're fine. Do it in the sequel and it's silly. Do it with multiple characters and it just becomes b***h please.

                it happens because Yoshi genuinely thinks the playerbase is moronic and won't see the fakeout deaths for what they are (cheap drama to spice up otherwise uneventful cutscenes) and will endlessly be not only tricked into thinking every fake death is a real death, but also wont get tired of finding out it was just a fakeout.

                To play devil's advocate, I would see the exiled orphan trope as an exception to this rule that generally only happens at the start of a story with characters who were meant to die from the start.
                You can't really compare Thancred dying to Mufasa or Bambi's mom or Littlefoot's mom.

                Mufasa dying is the equivalent of Louisoix dying. The mentor/authority figure dying really early on to set the what the narrative is going to be. Who does in Lion King from that point forward? Only the villain.

                FFXIV killing another mentor/authority figure with Hydaelyn/Venat as late as EW already is doing what you're preaching but much harder.

              WAIT FOR IT:

              Actually write a threat that DOES?

              Also the Scions not having any reason to succumb to despair is a reflection of how boring and devoid of any actual character or depth they are. If they were actual characters they would have internal conflicts, anger, and sadness that would be potential cause for succumbing to a world-wide affliction that prays upon your negative emotions and turns them against you.

              The fact that the Scions DON'T just goes to show how empty and badly written they are as characters.

They had issues and conflicts when they were more new, once we found out despair it what causes the change I knew right away that our steeled cast would be ok. While I do think its a little weak them being so easy to depress after everything would also be weak and show no growth.

                I think the literal frickin apocalypse happening because of the also literal embodiment of despair is a decent enough excuse to get into some self doubt or general inner emotional turmoil. I don't think it should have turned any of them since the whole point is that we're the right people to do it because of the power of anime friendship, but it's lame they didn't take the chance to lean into it a bit.

      The Echo is a natural ability that all Ancients had which can resurface in sundered souls.

      The echo is a remnant of the ancients' power, triggered by your memories of the final days. A lot of people can get it as seen in ShB with Elidibus casting an illusion of the final days on norvrandt's sky.
      Hydaelyn's blessing, like any primal tempering, grants you immunity to other primals' tempering and some of her power. Are you completely immune to others' tempering despite Hydaelyn's death? As shown in ARR when Thancred had to kill tempered ifrit minions, it lingers after death.

        The Blessing is not tempering. Hydaelyn doesn't have the ability to temper. It's a common spell she used to use when she was Azem which guards against aetherial corruption (tempering). Also it somehow made a barrier around the Rising Stones.

      Hydaelyn's blessing/Traveller's Ward up till now has been gifted to those who awakened to their Echo powers which allowed them to hear Hydaelyn's voice. Now that she's gone, that blessing is no longer available but Echo users can still be made if the right conditions are triggered. But given we have the warding scales now, resistance to tempering which has been a major thing that was the crux of many issues involving primals and the city-states fighting, is now no longer a problem in the scenario that tribes, or at least certain tempered sects, find themselves summoning again to fight their enemies.

    I more and more wish RDM's Reprise wasn't shit and that it had Manafont.
    And why is Magic Barrier TEN SECONDS with a 2min cooldown? You can't use it while casting and need to time it perfectly to protect from some of the longer onslaughts, probably still miss the last hit. Literally worse than Addle.
    And why exactly does Manafication drop combos? And why is it 110s instead of 120?

      Reprise is for when you're a moron.

      What the frick does RDM need Manafont for?
      >TEN SECONDS with a 2min cooldown? You can't use it while casting and need to time it perfectly to protect from some of the longer onslaughts, probably still miss the last hit. Literally worse than Addle.
      You get it in addition to Addle, not instead of.
      >And why exactly does Manafication drop combos?
      I don't know but it's a non-issue, just weave it after Redoublement.
      >And why is it 110s instead of 120?
      So you have wiggle room to line it up again, like if you somehow fricked up and went into melee combo too early and couldn't it it after Redoublement so you have to wait until after Resolution and now it's three GCDs behind, except it's not because it's 110s instead of 120.

    I just dont understand why anyone likes the Scions. Theyre cardboard cutouts that exist to spout exposition and say act as a voice for the voicless WOL because the WOL not speaking ever means they basically have to be his tard-speaker communicating things for him. They have no personality or depth, they're not remotely likeable, they have too similar backgrounds (almost all of them sharlayan scholars and have white hair), they spent the ENTIRE MSQ up till Shadowbringers almost literally doing NOTHING because the writers had the genuis idea to make it so that the story revolves around creatures (primals) that can perma-mind control anyone without a special gift (blessing of light) that none of the Scions besides the WOL has so they would have to run off like litlte b***hes everytime you're up against one, and even when it WASNT a primal they STILL wouldn't help you because the devs didn't know how to program AI companions so any dungeon or trial the Scions would also have to leave.

    So basically you these boring, unlikeable characters that never help you in any way until the last expansion, and STILL don't help you for the final fight of that MSQ or the current expansion's (you know, the final battle of a JRPG typically involves the friends you journeyed the whole story with and it's always kino, but FFXIV doesn't have that ever because your companions are never there for the climactic final battle). Instead you have nameless fellow adventurers (players) always help you where the Scion never do

    And as a result, the entire MSQ has just proven that the Scions are'nt just worthless, but the WOL doesnt actually need them since they can either solo any threat or call on other adventurers. Which begs the question: Why the frick have we spent the last 10 years with them glued to our hips? Why don't they just frick off since we don't actually need them?

    Let's be honest, the only reason anyone likes the scions is because they're hot and they ship their self-insert with them.

            Graha becoming a member is still such a stupid decision.
            Love it when a story builds up a big sacrifice only to go "yeah actually this was a different version of him - the original you met earlier is still there and you can now recruit him and be best buddies with him even though there is literally nothing for this character to achieve besides sucking your butthole."

            Graha literally just exists to suck your dick at any given opportunity. He had like one moment in Endwalker where his Crystal Exarch self got a minute to shine but that was it.

          I hate it too.
          But there's a reason I play with the EN dub, and it's because I vastly prefer the EN cast.
          1 voice that shitty won't be enough to make me switch away to a cast I don't feel anything for.

              Yeah, but it would also mean I give up all of the voices I do like for one voice I don't.
              So it's going from 100 on every voice, to maybe 50 on every voice, or lower, just because Wuk Lamat's EN dub is a 1 and the JP dub is a 50 or a 60.

        It's all good to have him be a father figure and care about Ryne. I like Ryne, too. But holy hell does it feel like he got flanderized a bit. No interest in anything but RyneRyneRyne. Frick off, "tired dad man". Give us Thancred back.

          They all got flanderized, Estinien probably got hit the worst. I think they genuinely wanted to kill Thancred off in SHB but decided against it last minute after realizing they had no other tank for trusts. Not that him dying would've improved the story for shock value, but it was odd for him to have a dramatic speech that sounds like a heroes farewell only to show up again a few minutes later. If anything I think he should've found a way to stay with Ryne on the first.

          Had a perfect farewell and conclusion to his story... but was so popular they dragged him back and turned him into a joke by having Tataru and Krille absolutely clown on him. Get it! They're small and unthreatening, and he's the big dangerous Dragoon, but he's scared of them and can't do anything about them! Get it!? Get it!? It's funny! And that's become the majority of his character, either being the dumb meathead jock, or getting mocked by Tataru or Krille.

            Estinien doing effective work in the background like Eorzean Batman was a really good choice in SB. He could've popped up every other expansion for two cutscenes where he doesn't interact with us or our scion buddies and I would've been content with that. Even in SHB he feels written properly, he's straight up annoyed Krile can find him when he prefers to work alone, but then he mistakes Alisaie for Alphinaud and it was downhill from there. Like he became a completely different character.

            I think people overrate Eorzea's combat capabilities, especially thinking that primals are now tactical nukes to be used on a whim because the beast men and states agreed on a truce. The northern region of Tural probably has some suppression technology that makes summons or aether useless and that would absolutely frick up Eorzea.

        Shadowbringers really does have a bunch of fricking nothing going on that people just kind of subconsciously brush under the rug with the passage of time.
        And to be fair, Endwalker has its fair share of that as well, but the amount of something is more even, so it's more common highs, but they're not as high, whereas ShB has fewer highs but a lot of them are higher.

        There should have been a Heroes Gauntlet styled tour dungeon where we fight off the Final Days in each of the city states. Put it immediately before we frick off on the Ragnarok so you don't have to change anything more than the weather.

        actually reading this again, this appears to be very much 100% actual fact as the 'theory' relies on the sundering being true, which we outright know it is, but since this is written from the perspective of a scholar, it uses language that makes it seem up for debate when it really isn't given we know more than they do. It does outright state the avatar and host reaper must be uniquely compatible with eachother, so our avatar is connected to us in a very special way, much like Zero is connected to Zenos and that Fandaniel did have a hand in finding and binding her to Zenos as an avatar.

    So why is there no problem with barely anyone dying during Shadowbringers?
    I know that the Final Days is kind of the end-all be-all of apocalyptic events, cosmically speaking. Practically speaking, it's no more destructive than a rejoining is for a shard. In both cases, all the people living are basically wiped away or irrevocably altered.
    So why, knowing that the two were basically equally cataclysmic, are you giving Shadownigs a pass when nobody of importance dies there. At all.
