Episode 3: It's a Dirty Job, But Wulf's Gotta Do ItWe return with our first-ever Light Party episode of Astral Era! Derek, Jeremy, and Wulf are joined by Josh (yes, just Josh-- I dunno what it is with him and Wulf only having first names) for an in-depth discussion of the Samurai playstyle. We've also got some story predictions, an aesthetic evaluation of the Genji armor set, and a Final Fantasy V history lesson as Derek dives into the origins of the Deltascape series of bosses. (Note: I incorrectly reported that the Haukke Manor (Hard) final boss underwent a name change; it remains Halicarnassus, and the final boss of Haukke Manor (Normal) is Lady Amandine. My apologies! -D)

Episode 4: The Legend Returns, and So Do We
Patch 4.1 is on the horizon! Letter from the Producer Live XXVIII brought us an avalanche of information about the hotly anticipated continuation of the Stormblood patch series. We've got tons to discuss, from the brand new Ivalice raid (friggin' Ramza and Delita, is that you!?) to the long-awaited opening of Shirogane housing plots. Early October can't come soon enough!

Episode 12: Hot Summer \ A Hot, Hot Summerf(x) = Rathalos^50
What's a little summer heat compared to a fire-breathing dragon bearing down on you? Join us for a recap of our exploits in The Great Hunt (Extreme) and our time spent kicking back amidst the azure shoals of Costa del Sol during this year's Moonfire Faire. We also discuss the second iteration of the Eureka expedition, Pagos, and how it doesn't quite rekindle fond FFXI memories like some of us hoped it would.
(Apologies for lower audio quality than usual this episode due to a connection issue!)

Episode 2: The Far (PAX) West
Hey, you didn't think we'd be back, did you? Shows what you know, dad. Maybe this'll finally make you love me. If you ever come back from buying cigarettes, I mean. What? No, I'm not crying.
The Astral Era crew returns to discuss the hotness that is Patch 4.06. Can you say "Dragoon buffs"? I mean, I can, but I don't want to. We also delve into other new quality of life changes, Wulf's experience with the Gold Saucer, FFXIV's upcoming presence at PAX West, and the two recent additions to Tales from the Storm. Who knew Lyse had such a sweet tooth?

Episode 1: It All Starts Here


Greetings, Eorzeans! Welcome to the newly-launched home of Astral Era, a Final Fantasy XIV podcast. My name is Derek Heemsbergen, and I'm joined by two co-hosts: Jeremy Wyatt and Wulf. Yes, just Wulf. He's our Deep Throat, except...Eorzean. He's corrupt, but only where it matters.

Today, in our inaugural episode, we run through some brief introductions before discussing Wulf's discovery of The Hunt and Companion Chocobos, changes in the newly-released Patch 4.06, current class balance, and the new wearable goodies arriving in The Feast Season 5 and the Moonfire Faire.

We welcome any comments, questions, tasteful nudes (Wulf's directive, not mine), or any feedback you have for us! We're still fresh, which means there are bound to be roadbumps. We'll continue to make changes to the sections we discuss in the show as we discover what works best. Thanks for taking the time to check us out, and I hope you like what you hear!

The Astral Era has begun.
