August 11 has been a long time coming.
We've been stuck on the current patch of FFXIV for 5 months now (thanks, covid). Finally some more news about 5.3 is out and we have an official release date of August 11.
Patch 5.3, titled Reflections in Crystal, is scheduled to release on August 11th and is the ideal opportunity for new players to dive into FINAL FANTASY XIV Online. Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida announced that alongside the streamlining of the main questline of the original game, A Realm Reborn™, players new to FINAL FANTASY XIV Online can enjoy an expanded free trial experience which will include all content from A Realm Reborn and the Heavensward™ expansion—including the entire Patch 3.x series—up to level 60. The freely playable content represents hundreds of hours of award-winning gameplay and story experiences and comes with no limit on playtime.
Additionally, all existing and future A Realm Reborn players will also have access to the complete Heavensward expansion and all the benefits it includes.
Patch 5.3 also features many trials and challenges for veteran players to enjoy, including the finale of the Shadowbringers™ storyline, the next chapter in the NieR-inspired YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse alliance raid series, and more.
Further details on content planned to launch in the Patch 5.3 series is outlined below:

What are your odds on desynthing?
I'd been saving up for this desynth fest for months. I figured no matter what I had to pop all of these before the 2.4 patch. Here's how it all went down.Read full story...

This guy is 1 of the biggest Jimmys on Malboro.
Here's the deal. When I started Final Fantasy XIV 2.0 back in the beta, this Jimmy & I were in the same FC. I knew this guy was a hardcore crafter. I was too, but nobody really knew. The night I got all my crafts to 50, this nuab Hokuten was just a few hours behind me. When he had found out I beat him to 50, he never really spoke to me again since. He's just been a huge douche. Now I got some of his doucheyness on tape. You suck Hokuten. I'm the Master Crafter. Jimmy!

LAS VEGAS OCTOBER 17-18-19 RIO HOTEL AND CASINO
Oh man am I excited for this. I have no idea what to expect, but there's gonna have to be some really cool stuff to get into there for something that is gonna last 3 days. I'm really hoping to get to interview Yoshi P. I gotta axe him some serious questions. It'd be like my own personal Live Letter from the Producer.
I stream Final Fantasy XIV every Wednesday night at around 7ish. PT. I am on the Malboro server, my name is Avitas Sibannac. (do you get it?) I also am the FC leader of <Kefka> so come find me in game & check out our massive house that my FC built.
Can't wait to meet some of you Jimmys in real life at the Fast Festival. See you in October!

A new letter from the producer details FFXIV's upcoming glamour system and lets slip the release date of the new 2.2 patch.
Set your calendar for March 27. Well, probably the day after since it will likely be an all-day maintenance roll-out. That's the date we can expect the new 2.2 patch entitled "Through the Maelstrom" for Final Fantasy XIV to drop.
The glamour system will allow you to take any piece of gear and have it look like any equal or lower level piece of gear for that same slot that you have. Take a look...
Here she is going to make the Allagan caster robe look like the Crimson robe attained in CT. She's using some sort of catalyst called a "Glamour Prism".
If you're just picking this game up, join us on Malboro server and hit us up in the comments to join our FC. Don't forget to check out our starter guide.
With the release of the PS4 version only a month away, we know there will be many new faces on Eorzea. Here's how to not look like a n00b even though you are one.
Choosing a server (world)
There are only two datacenters, North America (located in Montreal) and Japan. Pick a server from the DC closest to you. If you want to play with the Gouki team, pick Malboro (NA).
Choosing a race
Hyur (Human): Really? Zzzzzz.
Elezen (Elf): About the same size and shape as human, can get a bit taller and has pointy ears. Good wizarding material. You think Legolas is the star of the LotR and fantasize about Spock.
Miqo’te (Cat people): A tiny bit smaller than humans, but not annoyingly so. Have cat ears on top of their heads and whiskers. You’re probably into furries and/or MLP.
Roegadyn (Giants): Big, muscular. Great for tanks or if you really want to see the detail in those armor pieces and have poor eyesight or a small monitor. You like bodybuilders, Muscle magazine is your porn.
Lalafell (Hobbits): Tiny, round, cute, and annoying. If you are a pedophille or just like trolling people, this is your dream race.
All kidding aside, the race you choose doesn’t matter much. We’re talking about 1-2 points in your base stat. If you REALLY are in to min/max when you MMO and you can’t live without those 1-2 points, follow this rule: Tanks should pick Roegadyn and choose Sea Wolves for the sub race. Melee DPS should choose Hyur Highlander. Archers should choose Elezen Wildwoods. Casters should choose Elezen Duskwights and Healers should choose Miqo’te Keepers of the Moon.
