Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood

Hi everyone :)

Continuing on from my "gaming" posts - after completing A Realm Reborn and Heavensward - I had to buy Stormblood - mainly because I hit the level cap near the end of Heavensward and I didn't want to loose all the experience.

Stormblood takes players to both Ala Mhigo and Doma. The main focus is to regain control of Ala Mhigo from the Garlean Empire. 

Stormblood brought big changes to the FFXIV world including:

- Level cap is increased from 60 to 70
- New jobs - Red Mage (ranged DPS) and Samurai (melee DPS)
- End of PlayStation 3 support
- More actions for each job to go with the new level cap
- Overhaul of the battle system
- Additional skill system to be overhauled
- Reassessment of unused/ineffective actions, adjustment to "tiered" actions
- Adding new UI elements for jobs
- New areas introduced, comparable in size to Heavenswards areas
- Swimming and Diving added
- New Beatment Tribes
- New Primals
- New Dungeons
- New high-end raid
- The Forbidden Land of Eureka (similar to the Diadem)
- New gear and recipes
- Item inventory expansion

and lots lots more!

So far I have managed to complete the main story questions and the patches that are released at the moment. I have started on Eureka and levelling up other classes and my gathering classes too.

Let me know if you are on FFXIV - I'm on the Ragnorak server :)
