FFXIV Patch 3.1 Airship Exploration - The Diadem

New FFXIV Patch 3.1 Content – The Diadem is….

FUN!!!!!!!! We’ve been asking for more open world content for a while now, and this feels like it! Open world bosses have led to congestion issues and models not loading on screen, so limiting the Diadem instances to 72 people is a good idea to start off. Perhaps if the servers and content balancing works out with the map that we have now, they may add larger capacity harder bosses for future iterations of this type of content.

Note that we’ve only tried The Diadem Normal though we do have Hard unlocked. We’ll be doing those soon and I’ll post the experience as well.

I thoroughly enjoy the idea of slaying smaller mobs which then spawns the next tier until you reach the starred mob. it reminds me of a more accessible and speedier version of ZNM from FFXI.

We got lucky with finding Little Foot (I refuse to call him anything else, also I can’t spell his real name ; ;). We haven’t had a chance to go back in again since we’re using static play times to learn Thordan, but perhaps this weekend we’ll be able to try Hard!
