Endwalker: New Jobs
Two new jobs will be added for players to unlock and experience.
First, there is the Sage, a healer class that uses 4 aether-infused floaty robotic arms to heal players, provide barriers and defensive buffs, and attack enemies with magic-style spells.
The second is the Reaper, a melee DPS class. They use a massive scythe in combat and have a shadowy void avatar to fight alongside them. On top of that, players can combine with their avatars, making them more powerful in the process.
Endwalker: New Areas
Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker also boasts three entirely new areas.
A vast chamber of carefully-maintained knowledge and invention, Labyrinthos sits underneath Old Sharlayan and contains within it a wealth of secrets for wannabe heroes to discover.
The home to the Garlean Empire. It has been referenced so many times throughout the story that I'm sure most of us can't wait to set foot on the map and explore the now desolate empire.
An island located in the middle of the sea is named The Bounty, between Eorzea, Othard, and Ilsabard. It is a hot and arid island, so much so that its denizens consume a laughable amount of perfume to mask the smell of sweat. The island is famous for alchemy. It is also one of the few places where Lalafells are native to the outside of the continent of Eorzea.
Endwalker: New Raids
There are two all-new raids in Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker.
The first is the new "Myths of the Realm" alliance raid that tasks players to pool their power and tactical acumen together to tackle the story of the twelve divine beings that have held sway over Eorzea.
The next is a high-level raid called "Pandemonium" – a mysterious new challenge in which a party of heroes will descend beneath the soil to face down a chaotic and ancient evil from ages past.
Endwalker: New Races
1). The Male Viera
Endwalker brings us a new playable race: the male Viera. The female Viera, who first appeared in the Shadowbringers expansion, have mainly represented these humanoids with massive hare ears. However, it has always been said that males of the species do exist, and they will soon become playable in Final Fantasy XIV.
One of the new Beast Tribes. The Arkasodara look like elephant people, but in the world of FFXIV, they are known for being incredible in the pursuit of knowledge, such as alchemy. They are indigenous to Thavnair and are the founders of Radz-at-Han and some Au Ra and Hyur migrants.
3). The Loporrits
Not much is known about this new beast tribe other than that they hail from the moon and that there is one minion in the game called Namingway, and they are of the same race.
And that's all we have at the moment regarding Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker. Also, we'll keep you updated as soon as we learn more about the game's news, guides, updates, and promotions of FFXIV Gil.
