FF Weekly: FFXIV Special Part 2

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.

The third member we’ll be introducing is the bard of love, Thancred!

Thancred Waters

A Midland Hyur of thirty-two years of age and the first Scion met if starting your adventure in Ul’dah. An expert in both survival and intelligence gathering techniques who fancies himself silver-tongued when it comes to the fairer sex, although many women would beg to differ.

Despite his eccentricities, when the time comes he can be a powerful ally! Here’s a shot from a scene where his dual-wielding skills really shine.

His boon companion is a nutkin. To find out what happens to Thancred, you’ll have to give FFXIV a try!

On to member number four, the hand-to-hand expert Yda!

Yda Hext

A Highlander woman whom about much remains a mystery, despite her high profile. Those who start their adventure in Gridania will encounter her and her comrade Papalymo before any of the other Scions. The pair travels together, finding their way into one troublesome situation after another.

One of the more amicable Scion members, what she lacks in wit she makes up for with her amazing physical prowess.

Yda and her bosom companion Papalymo take on various assignments together.

In the next part of this series, we will bring you great mage Louisoix’s number one apprentice, Papalymo, and another fixture of the Waking Sands, Urianger. See you next week!

Free Trial players can enjoy hundreds of hours of award-winning gameplay and story experiences equivalent to two full FINAL FANTASY titles, without limit on playtime. More information is available here:
