FFXIV: New Areas, Screenshots, and Sightseeing

MMORPGs are grindy; it’s just the nature of the genre. Expansions like Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward are meant to break up the monotony of that grind with areas and activities to keep you busy in new ways.

 

 New jobs, dungeons, and raids are exciting, but what always gets me going the most are the new areas. Despite how pretty everything in FFXIV: A Realm Reborn is, after investing hundreds of hours grinding, even those areas become trite.

 

One day, Heavensward’s areas and sense of adventure will also die; such is fate. But right now, everything is still beautiful and new. With the added element of flying mounts, exploring new areas has never been this fun. So let’s talk about Heavensward’s new areas and how they are introduced, while also looking at some pretty pictures.

 

Heavensward’s main quest will tour you through all of the new areas at one point or another. The areas are tremendously big, but luckily you’ll only really have to traverse each area by land for a couple of hours. You don’t have flying access right away, instead, you’ll need to collect 15 Aether Currents which, once collected, give you permanent access to flying around. You collect these by exploring via quests offered within the zone, and just good old-fashioned looking around.

 

While it sounds like a chore, you only have to do it once, and it’s actually quite relaxing. Mostly because each of the new areas are gorgeous. And no, you won’t be exploring a bunch of snowy landscapes, either. Just because it takes place up north and there are dragons, this isn’t Final Fantasy XIV: Skyrim.

 

 The new areas keep it varied by way of the harsh snowy mountains in the Western Coerthas Highlands, the forests of Dravania, and islands high up the clouds via The Churning Mists and the Sea of Clouds. All of which feel very different than anything offered in FFXIV: A Realm Reborn, which is obviously a good thing.
