Exploring Eorzea
By Mystina Valeth of Trabia

Hello everyone, ^^
What I’m about to show you is unreleased areas and blocked off locations in FFXIV that is normally impossible to get to and not available for the public of FFXIV players.
First off I want to say that I will not be revealing how I got into these locations, now that I have made that abundantly clear, let me explain a few other things. ^^ I'm not using a 3rd party program, I'm not hacking the game, et cetera, I just simply found a way into these places. I'm not cheating in any way, nor would I ever do so. If you do not beleive me then judge me and make conclusions all that you want.
That said, that doesn't mean what I'm doing is legal, I know there is a chance that I could get banned for posting this. It would be very sad for me if I did but seeing as I've just posted more info about the game then SE has in the last several several months,.. well I find that to be even sadder then me getting banned... lol, enjoy the videos and screenshots.


THREAD UPDATE - New video and screenshots of the Titan dungeon! A unreleased raid/dungeon!

I believe these two statements have to contradict each other. If they are normally impossible to get into, then it would be impossible for you to enter them without some sort of hacking/cheating/3rd party program or whatever you would like to call it. You can understand my skepticism, right?

3rd party, etc. It's okay. We don't care. Well, the self-appointed Champions of the Light care. But what are they going to do--tell SE on you?

Find any content ******************* out there?

Edit: I guess new zones are the biggest slices of content to come in 8 months.

While the pictures are great, intended exploitation is usually an instant account closure from SE's side. It causes issues further than the scope that you can see, such as:

1) Data corruption for your character, as it is in an area that is either unfinished, or incorrectly coded, which can send your character data mental

2) Becoming permanently stuck as you are in an area outside the scope of the games standard working zones

3) Realm instability issues as your character is causing a pull of data that might be unfinished, corrupted or dangerous, due to it not being accessible

These points are extreme examples of why it is always better to wait than to exploit your way into places you shouldn't be.

Should have at least blurred or turned off your name tag before making those videos. Since you reposted this on the official forums and the topic was locked you are so getting banned.

Thanks for the post! More interesting than what SE officially revealed during the last 10 months.

I have no idea why people like you can't wait a few months until content is released?

Because, like, 10 months of half-assed updates and UI tweaks is too little to keep us interested?

Always brushing your teeth - Um, why wouldn't you?

Never talk to strangers - I hate the general public

Never touch a girl till you are married - I am ***

Way to relate real life to a video game though. :)

I may be a little clueless on this issue, and I haven't seen any of the links yet hoping to be able to later, but could someone explain how this is any different to the guy who posted all the unused skills/spell animations not yet in the game??

It is because the OP clearly stated that they didn't exploit, cheat, hack etc etc, when the only way to get to somewhere you aren't supposed to be is through exploiting, and then he went and posted the same thing on SE's offical forums...

Yep I get both main points about the apparent lies in the opening statements and posting on official forums but that doesn't answer my question

Okay guys, obviously I knew that I would have a chance of getting banned when I posted all this, I mean really? duhh.. Anyways,..

If you looked at all the videos and screenshots I posted, almost all of these are all rank 65+ areas with content that looks EXACTLY the same has what we already have… I mean how much does SE need to copy and paste? What do we have to look forward to when they up the max level? and the reason why I didn't wait 3 months for updates is because it will be more like 10-20 months, not 3... lol

Also, please stop calling me stupid and other negative comments, I did this knowing full well what could happen to my account, so to those who don't like the content I have posted, move on and don't look at it.. I mean you don't play a game or read a book you don't like, so why look at this post if you don't like? To those who do like what I have posted, please leave comments ^^ This post has been created purely for those who are curious and were dying to know what were beind these locked areas.

Haters will hate and all that. Thanks for sharing these REALLY cool videos and screenshots so at least -I- can enjoy them and look forward to whats instore ^^

I guess what I don't understand is, why in the heck did you post this on the official forums? I mean, that is like an instant red flag to SE. Do you just not care about your account? And if not, why did you even post pics of a game that you obviously don't really care about? It just doesn't really add up.

As for the pics themselves, some of the stuff looks interesting at least. Let's also not forget that a lot of this "content" is probably still being worked on, so it could be much different/more detailed down the line.

Areas are not always the same, if they haven't been released yet, everything is ALWAYS subject to change. So you could get banned for nothing because it could very well possibly change. Those areas probably been there since release so When they choose to open something up (i.e Dungeons) you will see the change, they haven't put in the .dat files yet because they know it will get data mined within an instant

I guess what I don't understand is, why in the heck did you post this on the official forums? I mean, that is like an instant red flag to SE. Do you just not care about your account? And if not, why did you even post pics of a game that you obviously don't really care about? It just doesn't really add up.


Well, let's hope it was a kick in SE's **** nonetheless. I hope they relize they really need to get moving.

When high level players start to do illegal stuff just for fun, and don't even care about their account, something is rotten. And it's not the player.

This is the same as the person who posted the video with all the new skill/magic abilities. Why is everyone giving this OP such a hard time? Just because they aren't a gutless wuss who is scared to get their free account banned? Get over it. I for one say thank you for more info in one post than SE has released in 10 months.

There's a JP person that already posted all of this on youtube. You didn't have to risk yourself getting banned. I thank you for providing another perspective, but this was really not necessary.

I almost see landmarks in these areas! I would love it if I didn't have to rely so heavily on my map. I could navigate most of FFXI without looking at the map once. There were enough unique features in each area. I have hopes that the areas in the OP are still under development.

No, it isn't. I know the person that posted the new skills and abilities.

err...I don't understand. So it is different because you know the person? Or you know the person who did the other one and you know they didn't use an illegal method of obtaining the information?

Either way I don't see the difference. Both are displaying things to the public that are not currently implemented in the game. One person was hailed for their work and the other flamed. Ehh...let's be honest. Everyone who visits this thread is going to look at those videos and screenshots whether they think the OP is an idiot or not.

I'm merely pointing out it's a different person that posted the new skills and abilities. I didn't comment on the method - although that person did make sure their name wasn't seen in the vids......

Making these vids so other people can see them, fair enough, it can generate some interest. Posting it under your own character name, well, I think that's a bit dim but the OP doesn't seem to care and nor so I.

I want to be one of the few to say:

thanks, that was all really interesting! You may have sparked more interest than SE with some of those vids. Exciting to watch.

But now, to join everyone else, you should have typed /names before you made those videos

Thanks for showing something new but SE is on high alert with their hacking problems.This is enough to turn the corporate eye toward you and put you in a file.

Hahahahahaha.

If anything, SE should be caring far less about insignificant things like this and be worried about preventing further major breaches into their user databases.

It's really sad, but seriously, none of these areas look unique or interesting. They look like re-skins of areas in 11 or just the same textures/colors applied to new areas.

Underwhelmed to say the least.

If only that were true! FF XI zones were at least unique!
To me they look like re-skins of zones I know from... FFXIV, hahahaha!

Def. waisting time, as all these area were never finalized, nor the .dat files on these areas have changed, for all you know, what your seeing now from the Videos, could be ALOT different when they actually implement it.

A lot of us had that mentality back in the "but it's only beta" days.

Alpha. Beta is a stage where most of the stuff has been implemented and works.

This, though it's funny people called stupid when I stated there was virtually no creativity in the zones of their online FF titles versus their offline ones. Why they have to constrain their imagination and make most areas boring to look at I have no idea.

I can think of maybe five zones in FFXI that showed any real creativity, and even less in FFXIV. It makes think if there's a switch in their minds that they turn off just because it's an online game.

Hm. At least the zones I know from FF11, while possibly not the most creative pieces of art, had some "charm".
Take Sarutabaruta. I just somehow... always liked it. Perhaps because it reminded me holidays and was populated with Mandragoras and bees floating in the breeze of a never-ending summer.

To be honest I have no clue what they actually are, I do know that they are very most likely part of the imperials... I just like to call them mako factories since thats what they kinda look like ^^

How can you say ffxi didn't have any creativity? All of sky, jeuno, meriphitaud, all of sea, riverne sites, lufaise, xarcabard, ifrit's cauldron, zitah, etc etc... were all insanely unique and creative zones that each had their own styles and character. I wish I could say the same for FFXIV so far...

SE Y U MAKE ALL AREAS THE SAME! D:

Seeing this made it easier as I uninstalled XIV this morning. My hope months ago was that SE would hear all the criticism about the existing zones, and if they wouldn't change them, at least make sure that future zones are a lot more pleasing to our eyes and minds.

Sure, it's possible that the zones shown here will be noticably different from what is implemented, but I've lost that bet far too many times to take it again. This is not enough to look forward to for me to justify the time spent.
