  3. Just how much new content 5.0 really have?

I went to garlandtools database and compared all expansions (not counting any patches after them) in a few areas.

The total number of new quests:
3.0 542
4.0 530
5.0 452 ↓

Achievements
3.0 188
4.0 147
5.0 154

FATEs
3.0 151
4.0 211
5.0 108 ↓

Items
3.0 2261
4.0 2272
5.0 2142 ↓

Minions
3.0 21
4.0 21
5.0 20

Mounts
3.0 6
4.0 10
5.0 10

Instances
3.0 14
4.0 13
5.0 13

So as you can see there indeed were some content cuts, most notably 80 less quests because generic 'role' quests replaced unique job quests.

Huh, so it wasn't just my imagination that there seemed ALOT less fate variety in the new areas. I felt like I was just doing the same few fates over and over while grinding rep points and just assumed it was the grind setting in. Strange that they'd add a whole new system to fate grinding but drastically reduce the number of different fates you'll be grinding.

Yeah that is weird. Then again, still seems like few people are doing them.

Can I get a breakdown of the mounts? It seemed to me that HW with only 6 is too low tbh especially since its the only expasion that gives you 3 mounts during MSQ.

The combination of less FATEs, crap FATE exp, and the Shared FATE system really made it a crapshoot this expansion

3.0 mounts are the Griffin, Black Chocobo, Manacutter, War Panther, Midgardsormr, and Twintania.

Their numbers for mounts are weird. I understand that they use datamined data and cant count midgardsormr as a mount because it adds automatically and there's no item to claim it, but why they didnt counted both primal birds? 5.0's number is off two as they added two mounts not available at 5.0 (circus ahriman and yellow cloud)

I wasn't playing then, but the lanners seem to have been added in 3.2

Then 7 mounts in 3.0 is correct (add amber choco to listed above), and 5.0 had 8 mounts (10 minus those two I mentioned).
