I was just wondering if the other 2-3 zones were available during Phase 3? I scoured each map and found no direct entrances to these areas. I was looking forward to exploring them. Will they be available in P4/release?

My guess is yes, but... it may be a quest that unlocks the area.

Knowing FF, I would not be surprised.

Some people were able to glitch past the doors to the strongholds, but all of those were blocked off. P4 should be MAINLY the retail version of the game, though it would not surprise me if they locked some things to prevent spoilers.

I'm assuming Coerthas and Mor Dohna will be in retail as well? or did they scrap them/withold them for a future update/expansion?

Xivdb.com has the maps of those zones if you're interested.

The reason you couldn't find any entrances to the other zones, such as Coerthas or Mor Dhona, was because they put in placeholder blockings, such as rocks or boulders or cordoned off paths or what have you. They did the same thing back before Phase 3 when it came to going anywhere that wasn't Gridania or The Black Shroud, really; a bunch of rocks on the path to Thanalan so you couldn't go there, and so you weren't simply met with an invisible wall on an otherwise open path.

Dollars to donuts they'll be available when the game releases (I'm not about to make guesses about Open Beta, but who knows?). They're not going to make those quest-only zones. I'll eat a bowler hat if they do.

At least we'll have this to look forward to if they jip us by not releasing Mor Dhona and Coerthas in the open beta.

I'm confident they will have them available in open beta. Progress will be saved during open beta so I really doubt they will withhold any content that we might be able to complete before launch. This is especially true because of the players on the legacy servers. If they limit the content available, what will we have to do if we don't have the top tier stuff to try out. I don't want to spend my first few days in the real game grinding my arcanist quite yet.

Well I'll have something to look forward too, along with PLD's heal. XD

I'd be surprised if they aren't considering they showed both in their latest Tour of Eorzea video.
