Happy new year to all fans of FINAL FANTASY XIV!

2011 was a year during which the development team walked side by side with you, the players. We've been able to come this far thanks to your unwavering support. As was mentioned in the FINAL FANTASY XIV Version 2.0 announcement a few months ago, 2012 will be a year of new beginnings, and we're prepared to pour even more of ourselves into the game than we have in this year past.

Keeping our four keywords—fun, live, reboot, and rebuild—close to heart, we'll continue to press on towards the game's rebirth. This I promise you.

Now, let's talk about something dark for a bit—the threat of the Seventh Umbral Era, which looms ever larger. I've very recently received a missive from our friend Louisoix, head of the Circle of Knowing, which contained another ancient verse of prophecy. Though I can't claim to know much about poetry, simply reading the passage fills me with a sense of dread. It certainly doesn't help that Louisoix has been rather edgy over the lesser moon Dalamud. Fear is contagious, after all.

Quote:
Seven waning moons see seven suns rise.
Divine order roils, fallen corpes writhe.
Souls from aether far, strangers from strange lands,
Yester with thine eyes, morrow by thine hands.

-Remainder of Seventh Verse of the Divine Chronicles
Mezaya Thousand Eyes


In closing, I hope we can rely on your continued support and interest FINAL FANTASY XIV throughout 2012, whether you're still playing the game or waiting for Version 2.0 to arrive. Above all else, though, I hope that you'll keep on having fun!

Like Final Fantasy XI, the game specs will be extremely high for the time, but in about 5 years, an average machine can run it on max settings with little to no issues. Tanaka also expressed interest in making a benchmark program available.

The Seventh Verse of the Divine Chronicles
Mezaya Thousand Eyes wrote:

Ne'er till land consumes sun can sea bear moons.
Heavens spew crimson flame, hells seep black dooms.
Stray seeds quicken in ash's grey embrace.
Valiant blades forged under the Twelve's good grace.

Seven waning moons see seven suns rise.
Divine order roils, fallen corpes writhe.
Souls from aether far, strangers from strange lands,
Yester with thine eyes, morrow by thine hands.


I think the the lesser moon Dalamud will be hit by a Meteor and come crashing down upon the world changing the landscape forever. This would subsequently change the gravitational fields surrounding the planet and could in fact disrupt channels of aetheryal energy causing other unknown phenomena.

Just theorizing.

If you access it directly through the lodestone you can click on it to enlarge and set it, I already did. I'm always smoking and drinking coffee so it's actually quite fitting. My wife laughed.
