Endwalker’s history, classes, and content explained


Released in November, Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker brings new classes and regions to the expansive and much-loved MMORPG. Here’s what to expect.

Release scheduled for November 23 Endwalker is the latest extension for Final Fantasy XIV. So far, every expansion of the game since its relaunch with A kingdom reborn has proven better and better, setting high expectations for this release. Covering the finale of the long battle between the gods Hydealyn and Zodiark, Endwalker sees players travel to new places, including the full moon Final fantasy tradition. But there is a lot more content to come.

Two new classes are added to the game. One is a barrier-based healer called the Sage, and the other is a magical melee fighter known as the Reaper. Previously, the Astrologer functioned as a Barrier Healer in addition to Combat Support, but this class is losing their Barrier Abilities to better focus on a range of Support Skills, leaving Sage as the only dedicated Barrier Healer. Little is known about the Reaper, although glimpses seem to imply that he will have some sort of summon or pet to help him deal a lot of damage quickly, and his primary weapon is a two-handed scythe.
