• Due to datamining of the demo files, substantial leaks are now everywhere. As a reminder, some of these are in-development screenshots and may point to events that aren't going to be in the final game. Some of them are clearly going to be in the game. The TLS stance is this: Any thread which will contain discussion on the leaked images/ details must clearly contain [SPOILERS] within the title. Anything within those threads does not need to be spoiler tagged. Any POST anywhere on the board containing spoilers must be spoiler tagged or it will be removed and warned. Please report this where you see it. Let's try to make sure everyone can still freely post until everyone has a chance to play this game please!
  • The game is shipping early to some across the world. We have a spoiler section with spoiler threads that are hidden from the new posts button. This was planned to be removed on April 10th. To allow users better access to these threads and ongoing discussion, this feature will be removed earlier. Do not panic - spoilers are not allowed in thread titles and are clearly tagged. You will not be spoiled unless you click on the threads and read them.

The Final Fantasy XIV Thread [Current Patch Shadowbringers 5.2]

Heyo folks

I cleared Shiva savage last night. The clear video is being uploaded by one of my raid team so you can hear everyone screaming (and me going "...Jesus") shortly, but I wanted to call attention to the new Shiva theme because I remember when 2.4 or whatever released we had a chat about the Shiva theme and @Shademp didn't like it XD


I particularly like 2:08 onwards, I've been progging the fight for a few weeks and I never got tired of it. That's a big deal XD
Bits from 1:45 - 2:45 do appeal to me. But it's just a fact that FFXIV themes are very hit and miss with me. Also suspect that I'm a difficult flirt with FFXIV's boss themes because I still associate Final Fantasy music with the more oldschool style. Take for example the Alexander boss theme: On first listen I was all like "WTF IS THIS WHAT IS THIS DOING IN A FINAL FANTASY GAME" but then I became addicted to the theme for a while.

Same story actually with Otherworld from FFX, even though it's technically from an "oldschool" period. I can never stop feeling like the theme is out of place, but repeated listens did build appreciation.

Anyway, I do not desire to be a downer. Happy that FFXIV keeps pumping out new boss themes and that they dare experiment. *thumbs up*
