    I got my Demo character through "Realm Reborn" and got to lv. 60. I'm going to just take my time at this point. I did stumble on the Hildebrand side-story arc and finished it as far as it goes on this expansion, lots of fun was had.

    In case you were wondering...yes. Hildebrand was from 1.0 (the original FFXIV that was so terrible they literally smashed a Death Star into the planet) and did in fact tank Dalamud/Meteor to the face and the worst that happened was it gave him amnesia for five years until "you" stepped in to help.

    That explains a lot since that first part seems to assume you know the characters already.

    There really isn't much you need to know about Hildebrand, honestly, that isn't covered in the quest. When Godbert shows up for the first time and piledrives his own son, he straight up mentions it's been a few years since he and Mrs. Manderville learned of their son's trip to Dalamud, which in turn is why everybody thought he was dead for five years when in reality he was teaching the zombies in the desert how to be gentlemen (and succeeded) as their appointed leader.

    Though on the same subject, this is why you DO need to do Binding Coils of Bahamut. Hildebrand stuff is ultimately pretty silly and extraneous (well, except until recently where they're tied into the newest relic weapons or something but that's Endwalker and a LOOOOONG way off). Binding Coils is the complete opposite, since it covers what really happened five years ago as well as getting into some stuff with Alagan technology that's going to come up a LOT with things that involve the Allagans later in the plotline. It's also the ONLY time Alisaie is going to show up canonically before the events of Heavensward (to the point it is, canonically, the first time she acknowledges your existence as a fellow Scion).

    SE started a series of short animated tutorials for new players today. Just an introduction so far.

    The Moonfire Faire event for this year started yesterday. It's pretty short and you get a new swimsuit set for completing the mission part, and the part of Costa Del Sol where it takes place was pretty packed last night for anyone that wants to party and chill with other players. Goes to the 26th.

    You can try doing the jump puzzle also after the quest ends, i'm not very good at platformers so havent tried it. There are no rewards for completing it though so all optional

    And tomorrow is the 2nd part of the Live Letter with Yoshi-P for patch 6.2. We will see gameplay of the Island Sanctuary content

    Supposedly, if you clear the optional jump platformer after the event one, you get a view of what may be the prototype of the upcoming personal Island Sanctuary. Photo from Reddit.

    Damn, if I didn't already own all of that I totally would jump on it.

    As it is, I haven't touched the game all month, been too busy with holiday season prep :lol
