It's also notable that this is the ONLY dungeon in the game (to my knowledge) where that victory screen does not involve anyone in your party celebrating the victory. Even though the traditional Final Fantasy victory music plays, the mood is dour.


Yeah the Deepcroft storyline is great just for how out of the f***ing blue it is. They take such a throwaway scene during early leveling that is just there to say "hey don't be a prick in parties" and escalate it like mad. It also KEEPS GOING after Deepcroft if you decide to do PotD. There might be even more tied to it after that but I haven't done Floor 100-200

Wow that's insane. I sort of casually played FFXIV's story and thought it was fine, but if the lore is that intense I might have to start reading more about it

FFXIV's story actually gets pretty hype after the post ARR giga chain and into Heavensward. Haven't gotten to Stormblood but heard it takes a little dip but still neat and then Shadowbringers brings it into overdrive even better than Heavensward. I'll have to see when I get to it.

The raids and elite super dungeons also have hype stories. Alexander and Coils of Bahamut were awesome and had tight music. Heck one boss is basically a super sentai giant robot and your party does a fun backs turned to the explosion shot
