Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne here, up bright and early after wrapping up the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE!

For those of you that missed it, the team held another of their special FATE events in Japan, this time in Sendai!

Project Manager M was kind enough to grab some photos of the local event and share them, so without further ado...

Special Ramuh Battle Challenge
The event featured a special Ramuh battle that was tuned for events! Also, if adventurers formed a 4-person Light Party, they were given an awesome art card as a gift!


Letter from the Producer LIVE Part XVI
Lots of people were watching quite closely when the Ninja preview video played!...

Hello all!

Fernehalwes here, back for my first developer's blog in...GAH! Has it really been that long!?

I thought that I'd have at least a few weeks to regain my bearings after a half-year blank, but it was less than a few days before FFXIV's master composer, Masayoshi Soken, was a-tap-tap-tapping at my door. You see, he needed lyrics for the latest primal diddy─a tribute to Ramuh, Lord of Levin. But that wasn't all. This time, we were going with a new Japanese vocalist, and she needed to be trained in the intricacies of that wonderfully crazy language we call English.

The recording was done over a period of five days or so, and I was asked to sit in to make sure everything on the lyrics side was being followed to a T. Being offered...

Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne here again with a quick look at some of the new gear that is making its debut today in 2.3!

While Yoshi-P and Foxclon were reading out all of the patch notes on a live stream, it seems that Project Manager M had some fun on the test server playing with some of the new gear! I nabbed her screens to share 'em with you all!

Paladin!

Monk!

Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne here!

Celebration time! We have just about one more week until the release of patch 2.3!

Since a whole week might be too long to wait, a lot of us at the office decided to sleep to pass the time. Of course, we had to do it in style...by donning the new 'nightwear' outfits!

Here's a shot of the back of the outfits! You can see some subtle differences between the male and female versions.

Hidden underneath those long gowns are adorable culottes and slippers!...

Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne, back again! You can't get rid of me!

Did you hear? We just launched the Defenders of Eorzea website and trailer!

We're still aiming for the release of Patch 2.3 on July 8th!
I can't wait to start pummeling other players in the Carteneau Flats in Frontline!

The website also featured the awesome Patch 2.3 key art that shows adventurers battling Ramuh! (Or maybe just posing in front of him... Guys he's right there.)

Just wait until you guys hear the full Ramuh music!
