Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood: What We Know So Far
Stormblood will now open the gates to Ala Mihgo, which is the main focus of the next expansion. The new area will be the epicenter of all the major events in Stormblood where players (you) are set to liberate the island from the tyranny and control of the Garlean Empire, which is said to have ruled the land for over 20 years. The main antagonist of the storyline is the XIIth Legion Legatus and de facto ruler of Ala Mihgo.
Character Update and Battle System
Aside from the added map, the level cap is also raised to 70 and 'multiple new' jobs are added into the current pool. What's more, there will be an upcoming major revamp of the talent and battle system, enabling players to easily switch in-between roles and skills are now shared by roles instead of jobs. In the light of this change, Yoshida has this to say: "We're regrouping and recategorizing skills so they're categorized as roles rather than jobs. From those shared roll skills and actions, you'll choose which you need."
Raids, Dungeons and More
