FINAL FANTASY XIV Patch 2.4 - Dreams of Ice prt. 2
While preparations are being made to chase Iceheart, we meet with some representatives of Ishgard.
Unfortunately, our meeting is interrupted by an attack on a supply caravan containing aether crystals. However, this attack helps us understand what Iceheart's true goal is.
Yda is helping!
Obviously the best time to have a pow wow is right outside their lair. It's fucking cold out here!
How come Minfilia gets to grab a coat? That's some bullshit.
Luckily, Moenbyrda is ready to help us get inside. We can only hope we'll make it in time. Spoilers: we won't.
I bet @RpgN will like this one.
What a surprise, we fail! Time for a boss fight.
During the fight she will often drop a hailstorm of icicles on the players, which is dodged by running to any area that isn't overlapped by circles on the ground.
This part is SO GOOD. She snaps her fingers to freeze everybody and then she shatters them. It's also when the theme transitions to THE BEST PRIMAL THEME IN THE GAME.
Pretty easy fight overall but I'll note that around 6:10 Shiva turns the floor to ice. It's possible to slide all the way into the edge of the arena and freeze, to death most likely.
Lord Haurchefant, you need to chill the F out. We won, that's all that matters!
Luckily our relations with Ishgard appear to have improved ever so slightly. There's a few things I noticed in this cutscene that resonate with me a bit more having beaten Heavensward. These characters are a lot more involved in that expansion and it's obvious to me now that they were thinking about the story in it long before it came out.
God Minfilia, why do you always have to be such a wet blanket. Can't we just celebrate our victory for a minute?
