Mogchute Farm Week-long Livestream Goes Up Today!

Recommended Posts

Hatching-Tide.jpg

To celebrate the Island Sanctuary, Square Enix has decided to host a week long livestream of a real-life farm! With cows, chickens, goats, and more, what better way to enjoy the sounds of Island Sanctuary in the background?

For some FFXIV players, Island Sanctuary is more exciting than the new raid tier. Having a section of the game that's nothing but slice-of-life content is appealing to many people, especially with the constant rise in popularity of laid back games such as Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley, Harvest Moon, and so many more.

We're excited to see FFXIV's spin on that type of gameplay...but to get people excited for it, they've gone live as of this morning with a week-long livestream of real farm animals. When someone in the Twitch chat complained that they'd rather see gameplay, someone else suggested that "This IS the gameplay." If that's the case, it may be more laid back than we ever expected!

Just as well, the community has taken to naming the single rooster in the chicken enclosure "Zenos." The memes abound.

Based on what we've seen so far, the Island Sanctuary isn't intended to replace housing, but it will be a fun little farming/ranching sim in the same vein as the tiny farm players ran in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. Only...you know, in a much different game.

"Mogchute Farm" is hosted at Mudchute Farm; an agricultural non-profit charity farm based in the United Kingdom. In Square Enix's post, they link to Mudchute Farm's website for those interested in more information or giving to the charity to forward ideals of better care for the environment and cruelty-free treatment of livestock animals.

You can check out the Mogchute Farm livestream on the Official FFXIV Twitch Channel.

      In an extraordinary feat of skill and determination, a group of just six players has successfully cleared the Unending Coil of Bahamut raid of FFXIV in Ultimate difficulty!
      Did you know it is possible to clear an ultimate fight with fewer than 8 players? Well, Twitch streamer Serenaya Carrin and teammates have achieved just that! They successfully cleared The Unending Coil of Bahamut (Ultimate) Raid in Final Fantasy XIV with only a party of six!
      This challenging raid, also known as UCoB, is considered one of the most difficult encounters in the game.
      Placeholder for tweet 1794792245926985763 Ultimates are among the last challenges you can face in FFXIV after clearing every Savage Raid. UCoB (the Ultimate Coil of Bahamut) was introduced during Stormblood and is based on the Coil of Bahamut raid series from A Realm Reborn. Clearing an ultimate fight, even with a full party, represents a significant challenge for almost any FFXIV player. However, achieving it with only a party of six is truly an accomplishment that Serenaya and the group can be proud of!
      If you would like to watch the full battle, you can find a recording of the 6-man fight below.
      And for those of you familiar with Final Fantasy XIV raiding, you can also review the logs here: Bahamut Prime
      Congratulations again to the team for this amazing achievement! 
      For those with experience in ultimate challenges, what do you think about clearing it with less than 8 players? Which ultimate fight would be the hardest to clear, in your opinion?

      The latest Final Fantasy XIV Letter from the Producer Live Part LXXXI has revealed a new trailer, showcasing all the classes and their new Dawntrail actions, the new login screen, and more!
      The Live Letter kicked off with a really cool Job Actions trailer, which showcased all of the new job actions coming with Dawntrail across all classes. We recommend that you watch it if you haven't already!
      Let us also take a moment to appreciate Dawntrail's beautiful opening screen! The summer vibes are palpable, and the themed music could not be more fitting. When you first log into Dawntrail, you will truly feel as if a new adventure is about to begin!

      With every new expansion comes a bunch of new actions for each class, tailored to the increased level cap. The development team has also made adjustments in response to player feedback.
      A key focus has been to make sure that controller hotbars have ample space for all the new actions. This has led to the introduction of a new action change setting, offering you the choice to replace old actions with new ones as you see fit.

      Next, we are going to dive deep into each of the new actions. Keep in mind that this list isn't fully complete, so stay tuned for more updates:
      TANKS: 
      Adjustments to overall tank actions: Rampart and job-exclusive 30% damage reduction abilities will be upgraded in the 90s level range. Reprisal’s duration will be increased to 15 seconds in the 90s level range. Paladin: The second and third executions of atonement have been changed to new actions with separate animations. A new action that can be executed after Blade of Valor will be added. Warrior: New action, which can be executed after three executions of Fell Cleave or Decimate while Inner Release is active. New action that can be executed after Primal Rend. Dark Knight: Blood Weapon will upgrade into Delirium, and the effects of Blood Weapon will be added to Delirium in order to reduce the number of inputs during burst damage phases. New action can be executed after Living Shadow. Gunbreaker: New action that can be executed after Fated Circle (via Continuation). New three-step combo that can be executed after Bloodfest (with no cartridge cost). MELEE DPS:
      Adjustments to overall melee DPS actions: Second Wind’s healing potency will be increased in the 90s level range. Feint’s duration will be increased to 15 seconds in the 90s level range. Monk: Basic combo mechanics will no longer center around maintaining a buff or damage over time, but more about performing actions in a certain order to increase the next action’s potency. Can accumulate up to a total of ten chakras while Brotherhood is active (to prevent chakra overflow). Dragoon: Reduce positional requirements for the single-target combo; the fifth combo action has been changed to a new non-directional action, Drakesbane (Fang and Claw and Wheeling Thrust will change to Drakesbane, so input execution will remain the same). Life of the Dragon will be available without accumulating Dragon Gauge. To reduce the number of inputs during burst damage phases, certain actions will be removed or adjusted. Ninja: Huton’s effect has been moved to a trait and will always be active (it will be changed to an AoE attack that grants the effect of Hidden). Actions that extend the duration of Huton’s effect will be adjusted in accordance with the Huton modifications. Samurai: To simplify recast management, Tsubame-gaeshi will be changed to be executable after Meikyo Shisui. Hakaze, Tenka Goken, and Midare Setsugekka will be upgraded into new actions. Reaper: Plentiful Harvest’s effect will no longer increase the Shroud Gauge by 50 and instead will allow execution of Enshroud.  New action that can be executed while Enshrouded. Viper: Shifting between dual blade and double-bladed strikes. Re-awaken Boosted mode when the gauge is full: allows you to execute the double-bladed abilities. Close-range attacks as well as ranged attacks. Some buffs and debuffs will define which actions to use after.

Bard: Mage’s Ballad, Army’s Paeon, and the Wanderer’s Minuet will be changed into buffing actions that do not attack enemies. Pitch Perfect will be changed into an AoE attack for ease of use in encounters with multiple enemies. Procs attacks will be merged. Machinist: Barrel stabilizer will no longer increase the heat Gauge by 50 and instead will allow execution of Hypercharge. New trait that accumulates charges for Drill. Dancer: New action that can be executed after Flourish. Additional follow-up attacks. New action that consumes Esprit and can be executed after Technical Finish. Action granting standard steps without having to go through the dance. MAGICAL RANGE / CASTER DPS:

New action which repositions Ley Lines beneath the caster. Summoner: Solar Bahamut: a new summon akin to Bahamut and Phoenix. New action that can be executed after Searing Light. Skill rotation updated based on the new Summon: Solar Bahamut - Bahamut - Solar Bahamut - Phoenix. Resurrection stays for 7.x, but 8.0 may remove raise from the Summoner skill set. Red Mage: Manafication will no longer increase Black Mana and White Mana by 50, and will instead allow the execution of enchanted swordplay actions without cost.

New AoE attack that can be executed after Chain Stratagem. Astrologian: The Card system will no longer be random and will instead simultaneously draw cards with offensive, defensive, and curative effects. Astrodyne will be removed in accordance with the discontinuation of astrosigns.

The development team, in collaboration with external partners, has been actively implementing new strategies to safeguard players’ experiences. While the attack has caused frequent disconnections, Yoshi-P extends his apologies and emphasizes that no critical systems were compromised.

      During the recent Live Letter, Yoshi-P shared new details about the Fantasia potion! Find out what's new and what it means for your characters!
      With the release of Dawntrail, a new NPC will be introduced in Ul'dah to teach you what Fantasia is. The quest will be accessible to players of all levels and will reward a Fantasia Potion. The aim of this quest is to educate both new and veteran players about what Fantasia is and what it can do. Upon completion, players will gain access to a more advanced character creation system.
      After consuming a Fantasia Potion, you will have a 60-minute window to enter the game and return to the character creation screen for any necessary changes. This process can be repeated indefinitely within the 60-minute time frame, even when initially creating a character.
      This significant change allows you to fix any tiny differences that may not be true to your vision, especially when seen in different in-game environments.
      How excited are you about the new character creation feature? Let us know!
