FF Weekly: FFXIV Special Part 1

FINAL FANTASY XIV: Endwalker releases on November 23, and Hydaelyn and Zodiark’s tale told through the stars and fates will finally see its conclusion!

If you haven’t played FFXIV yet, it’s never too late! Why not take this chance to give the game a try and enjoy the upcoming Endwalker expansion?

On that note, we’d like to take this as a chance to introduce some characters who fight alongside FFXIV’s “Warriors of Light,” the members of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. They’re a wonderful cast of characters, and we’re sure you’ll want to join them on their adventure!

Who are the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, you say?
A secret society devoted to serving the realm, they gave sage counsel to the leaders of Eorzea through unofficial channels. After their desperate struggle against the XIVth Imperial Legion, they stepped out from the shadows, and continue to work for the betterment of Eorzea.

First, we’d like to introduce the Antecedent of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, Minfilia!

Minfilia Warde

A Highlander woman of twenty-seven years. Her father perished shortly after their arrival in Ul’dah, killed by a beast that broke free of its fetters during a parade. Minfilia would have been alone in the world but for the kindness of the songstress F’lhaminn, who took her in, and around her seventeenth nameday Minfilia first experienced her uncanny talent to see the past through other’s eyes. The following year, she was introduced to Louisoix Levilleur by her long-time companion, Thancred, after which she established the Path of the Twelve – the precursor to the Scions of the Seventh Dawn.

Upon visiting the Waking Sands, home of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, Minfilia greets you and introduces you to the group’s members.

You can also use an item called a “linkpearl” to communicate with Minfilia and the other members of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn.

Our second member is the mysterious conjurer Y’shtola!

Y’shtola Rhul

A Miqo’te woman for whom the hands of time stopped at the age of twenty-three. She is the first of the Scions met if starting your adventure in Limsa Lominsa. She is a skilled user of the arcane arts, with vast knowledge of ancient languages and folklore. From a young age, she showed a tremendous talent with magic, and was sent for tutelage to the famous Archon Matoya at the age of seven.

Y’shtola casting a barrier to protect her companions in a tight situation!

Y’shtola’s mentor Matoya appears in the Heavensward expansion.

Next week we’ll be introducing the “bard of love” Thancred and hand-to-hand expert Yda! Don’t miss it!
