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.


Pretty well said... what really upsets me is that most of these places look the same as what we already have except slightly retextured or one unique thing, like the metal cylinder in Knight's Round Croft... I obviously don't want to get banned of course, but if I did, what exactly would I be missing out on?
Anyways, I hope my videos and screenshots gets SE to release more faster, but who knows if they will, they obviously released this game at least 2 years sooner then it should have.

I must say I'm...really disappointed in these areas. I doubt even filling them with a bunch of new monsters would liven them up.

Hope SE scraps them all and does a whole re-model.

Holy long *** tunnels Batman! They kept going and going...

I rather enjoyed the music in the Mistbeard Cove video though, kinda reminded me of Chrono Cross for some reason.

Thanks for taking the time to make the videos OP.

I got a question:

Am I the only person that doesn't want to see too much of a game they haven't played yet? If I'm really interested in a game and (ok, I'll give you that lol) I trust the developer enough to buy the game instantly, I would try to avoid looking at screenshots etc, cause it would spoil my in-game experience. I would like to be surprised, even if it's only to be disappointed, I would like the experience to be new. For instance, I've never seen any in game screenshots of Halo Reach, and man, was that a pleasant surprise playing. New Story, great one, new area's, new abilities, well, you get the point.

So no, I didn't look at the screens. Not that there's any point, looking at them would ruin any surprise that the new area's could potentially give me.

I don't really care that this info is posted, I just find it a bit eh... spoiling the whole thing, or future thing so to say. And if people want to quit and go "what the ****" and post this information on the net cause they are dissatisfied.... I find that a bit sad and inconsiderate.

I put this info out here for those who want to see it can see it, if you don't want to see it then no one is making you... If fact, I agree with you, lets take down all strategy

In fact there is a reason why this thread is named “Never Before Seen Content”, it wasn’t to excite people, it was to warn those who don’t want future content to be spoiled for them. I’ve already mentioned several times that I don’t want to quit playing FFXIV, so this isn’t a destructive “if I’m going down then SE is too”… that’s just stupid… I think it’s more inconsiderate to keep cool info like this for myself when I could share with other players.. lol =P

That is great that you want to be an explorer, great for you. You are the type that buys a game, and plays it the way they are meant to be played, without walkthroughs, cheats (just a term used) or other type of instructional manual. ****, I bet that you don't even buy game guides, because, they may have a spoiler or two in them.

Seriously, don't look, but don't complain when others do post info like this, or any other type of "hey, look where I've been". The very title of this post should have steered your eyes away. The OP posted links, not screenshots, so there was no "spoiler" per se in the post.

Most of the posters are surprised that the OP did not blur out their name and posted an obvious exploit, cheat, whatever on this and the offical forums, resulting in possible sanctions on their account.

However, they are confirming what most of us know, and that is that there is not much change in even the areas yet unlocked. ****, who knows, maybe the OP did us all a great favor and by posting this, the devs will look at the forums and think, hey, the players do not want areas that look the same as everything else in the game... that's right, there is NO variety, no "realistic" fantasy transitions, and BW looks the same as BF, which looks the same as ..... get the point?!?!?!?!

Furthermore, no one is forcing you to look at these forums. No one is forcing you to look at the internet beyond the game. Inconsiderate, to you and maybe a handful of other ppl, but not in general. Players are curious, and people in general have an inquisitive nature (if not naughty) to do things they are not supposed to. That is it...No one tried to p.iss in your Post-toasties, the OP was just supplying information.

Thanks for showing some zones, I had a lot of fun looking through the screenshots. It made me happy on one hand: that SE has something to release some time; but also disappointed that they do seem to be a mess of copy-pasted features to make bland and generally forgettable zones.

Putting one unique landmark in the middle of twenty or thirty instances of the same hallways, rock formations, and plant life isn't enough, unfortunately. >_<

SE, just open FFXI and look at, say, Korroloka Tunnel: it is a great example: a zone that was kind of bland but had several interesting lakes, a nice waterfall, places where sand filtered in room the ceiling, and two floors coexisting on the same map - the top of which could even be jumped - and, consequently, was memorable and generally well-done.

I mean to say that, while a zone doesn't have to be constant surprises and uniqueness, there does need to be something added beyond what a '90s-era random dungeon creator could do.

I completely agree with you Kane, although it was very exciting to see these areas, it was also very dissapointing at the same time due to most of the copy paisted stuff... :\ I really hope they see these forums and realise they need to majorly rework these areas...

lol in this video SE is actually bragging about copy and pasting things with ever so slight changes, I remember seeing this the first day the collector’s edition was released and thinking it was really dumb of them and nothing to brag about…

lol in this video you see all the equipment that isn’t even released yet that looks the same as the equipment we have now, in my videos you can see dungeons that aren’t released yet are copy pasted from dungeons we have now, and well look around… what’s the differences between a rank 10 mob to a rank 80+ mob, all mobs in game look the same too… now SE has released screenshots of a dungeon they plan to give us in mid-June, but those mobs are the same too…

It's just a "Look what I'm able to do and you're not!!"


ha, a couple months, dude those dungeons have been there since beta, what makes you think they will be released in a couple months? Try more like 10-20 months. and who cares what I can do, so what, I bugged the game. I had fun exploring these locations, can't lie it was probably the funnest I've had on this game...

really what else would I do anyways? leves, NMs, grinding, more leves, more NMs, more grinding, even more leves, etc, etc, etc...? Was fun exploring those places, but also very dissapointing at the same time due to alot of reused content that we already have, copy pasted stuff if you will. The main reason why I posted these videos was to show people what we were missing out on and at the same time show people what we weren't missing out on, and hopefully SE would take notice of how many people are dissapointed with these "new" dungeons and majorly rework them

I'm the kind of player the parent is--I don't want any help, and I spent hours tackling games because I want to find every secret on my own, including on replays. That's fun for me.

Unfortunately, it's not just forums that have "spoiler alerts" in MMOs--almost everything about MMOs makes them very difficult to play with the single-player RPG mindset. You're going to see spoilers in tells, shouts, trade chat, group chat, and your linkshell. You're going to see spoilers in official announcements, especially update announcements. Expansion packs are rife with spoilers.

The only way to play MMO in that sort of exploration/problem-solving mode is to do basically what the OP did--try to pioneer new ground.

That's one reason why I'm far more interested in getting on board a new MMO than playing any extant ones. Since I just started WoW this year, it's very unlikely I'm going to be blazing any new trails any time soon, given its massive, heavily invested userbase. I was really counting on FFXIV fitting the bill, but unfortunately I just dread playing it so much because it's just so hopelessly clunky.

For those saying you can't do it without hacking..you can actually, I've done it before to get to ishgard before it disconnected you. Either way some interesting places and yes, what's present here has always been present and judging from the videos versus a certain JP lalafell's, she didn't go to a specific place I assume is one of the areas of upcoming dungeons.

We'll likely be redownloading zones if they've done changes to them (kind of have to if its instanced content) which means things can always change come june.

There is a new video and screenshots that I “forgot” to post, they have been edited and added to the original post, you can find them at the very top of the list. The new dungeon is called “The Aurum Vale”, it’s a cavern beneath Coerthas filled with yellow steaming acid puddles and is probably the most unique place yet… Although its one of the most unique areas, the cavern is still just the same copy paisted design of the other three dungeons in Coerthas... atleast they made this one really unique with the acid and the yellow glow, enjoy! :D

yea, you don't need 3rd Party stuff to get into those areas. Alot of times this is just simply a collision bug in the game that allows people to go through if they try hard enough or approach the area in the right way (or well the 'unexpected way').

Or sometimes it just happens for no clear reason. Its happened to few people in my LS where they exclaim they've fallen through the ground...so the first thing they do is run to blocked off areas to look around...and usually say how there disappointed to not find anything interesting.

Hey I never said what I was doing was completely legal, I just said I wasn’t hacking and using 3rd party programs and cheating (depending on what you consider cheating)…lol

I'm not trying to start a fight, :) my main point was that your name should have been blurred. As for Collision issues, You'd think SE would have fixed those by now e.e. I personally remember glitching myself INTO the Valkurm Dunes ocean on my PS2 and sitting litterally in the ocean itself.

Oh no no don't get me wrong ^^ I wasn't trying to start a fight either, I was just saying =P

I don't know to me it did not look as copy and paste as the zones the game shpied with. Then again I am getting sick of the lack of open zones. why dose everything got to feel so **** claustrophobic?

I've posted a new video/screenshots of a future raid and possibly the dungeon for the Titan primal fight!
You can find the video and screenshots at the top of the original post, I'll also supply the video link in this comment

This is unreleased content, if you do not wish to se the spoilers, then do not watch the video. All that the video contains is video/screenshots of the inside of the dungeon... It does not show any battles, monsters, cutscenes, story plot, or anything else.

I would hate to be a level designer/environment artist on the FFXIV team, wondering how many years it's going to take before the area I worked on is even used.

I'm seriously in shock at how much environment is here and not being used. It needs to be used and soon. The amount of content they've released recently does not match up with the amount they've been working over time. So I'm hoping the map/re-vamp is huge and extensive and unlocks 90% if not all of these areas.

Thanks for showing some zones, I had a lot of fun looking through the screenshots. It made me happy on one hand: that SE has something to release some time; but also disappointed that they do seem to be a mess of copy-pasted features to make bland and generally forgettable zones.

Putting one unique landmark in the middle of twenty or thirty instances of the same hallways, rock formations, and plant life isn't enough, unfortunately. >_<

SE, just open FFXI and look at, say, Korroloka Tunnel: it is a great example: a zone that was kind of bland but had several interesting lakes, a nice waterfall, places where sand filtered in room the ceiling, and two floors coexisting on the same map - the top of which could even be jumped - and, consequently, was memorable and generally well-done.

I mean to say that, while a zone doesn't have to be constant surprises and uniqueness, there does need to be something added beyond what a '90s-era random dungeon creator could do.



BFE. I was noticing this the other day. Not only does it have all other things but it has a sense of space. The tunnel is tall, light changes in there; it feels expansive but it's mainly a connector zone. There are gigas walking around. Well, gigas, spiders, 2 different kinds of bats, worms, goblins, pugils, crab and jelly. There are quests in there and like you say is unique and memorable.

I've said this before that I'd rather have a bunch of creative zones with a small loading time rather than huge bland ones. Traveling from place to place over a few different zones makes the world engaging and seem bigger. Ironically huge areas don't. The transitions are just jarring and actually make the world smaller. Well that, and just poor design. WoW's fading into zones helps a bit, but those zones were varied and well designed so...

This is just another one of those things that boggled my mind when FFXIV came out. I expected large unique zones that had a bunch of different elements within them. Coerthas to me is the best zone in the game (in large part because of the music), but really isn't that good. The bridges are great landmarks and I can almost remember the zone in my head, but due to copy and paste and the lack of distinct mobs it ruins it.

Hopefully the map revamp fixes these problems.

I honestly want more information on it, they should be selling us stuff down the road more to keep us interested. Let's see some more screenshots. The fact that we have to see all these unreleased areas previewed from another player is proof of this.

The map just needs more points of interest. It helps players grasp a sense of direction, landmarks are the key to knowing where we're going, where we've been and where we are. It's easy to get a sense of where you are in Mor Dhona because you can see the giant Dragon/Airship crash from almost anywhere.

I would also appreciate a little more variety in caves and dungeons. FF games have a history of large elaborate ruins, dungeons and the like. Look at the Stillshrine of Miriam in FF12, or the Ancient City in FF7, etc.

I want to see a huge epic landmark before I enter a dungeon, not just a hole in the ground.

And I'd like for there to be more things to do than just fight enemies. Perhaps some mining, excavating, and exploring. Unique enemies, etc. Maybe even some puzzles.
