FFXIV: Do You Want a Balloon?

Well you can’t have one!

The end-raid boss of the new Omega in patch 4.2 is Kefka. And he don’t give no balloons.

I woke up to a one word text today from Syn. Knowing we have a Live Letter today, I had a feeling I knew what it meant, but I still asked for clarification.

I mean, it’s not every morning you wake up to “Kefka” on your phone. And yes, come to find out, it’s exactly what I thought. The new lineup for 4.2’s Omega bosses.

Oh, and it looks like there are going to be fights on the Phantom Train (rumors that it is the first boss). They dropped a hint that we’d see a Phantom Train battle back during The Rising anniversary celebration in 2015. Seriously. They hinted this two and a half years ago. And I didn’t forget about it… what does that say about me?

FF6 is probably my third favorite Final Fantasy ever, and one I have very fond memories of back when it first came out during my teen years. So while I’m usually not easily excited about raids, this appeals to me in every way possible.

I’m just a tad sad that FF4, my favorite game of all time, got passed over again. But it makes sense to do a FF5 -> FF6 -> FF7 progression. I mean… Sephiroth raid boss should get lots of fans hyped.

The Live Letter is still going on at this point, so the English 4.2 trailer hasn’t been released just yet. I’ll post it when it shows up, probably later today!

Also… housing changes. 😉
