FFXIV Shadowbringers vs WoW Shadowlands

FFXIV Shadowbringers vs WoW Shadowlands


hello guys and welcome so in this video
I wanted to do a Final Fantasy 14 Shadowbringers versus World of Warcraft
Shadowlands comparison so this video is aimed at people who have played one or the
other or both and are curious about the similarities between the two I’m gonna
start this by saying that I am a fan of both games I am NOT biased towards one
over the other so hopefully I’ll be able to give a fair opinion about both games
so Shadowbringers will start with my Final Fantasy 14 Shadowbringers is the third
expansion of Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn which came out or relaunched in
August 2013 the original version of Final Fantasy 14 1.0 launched in 2010 but we
don’t need to talk about that let’s forget it
headless you know it didn’t happen it didn’t happen so it didn’t do well so
the game was relaunched in 2013 and has since seen overwhelming success
basically now there are some innovations at Final Fantasy 14 has got which it
inherited from games like pharmacy 11 but for example the father on one
character you’re able to be every single class every single job you just change
your weapon you can change your class you can be every combat class you can be
every craft every gatherer on one character you don’t need to make a
different character per class like you do in while the Warcraft so in World of
Warcraft for example you can only be a grew it on one character you can only be
a paladin on one character and so on but in 14 you can be every single class on
the one character also as well if we focus now more on this story rather than
the white the real basics of the game so the idea of Shadowbringers specifically
is that we as the player have transferred or transported to an
alternate reality called the first so there are many is the source which is
the original let’s say world that we have been exploring all this time and
now we’re in the first there has there is said to be many realities but we just
focus on the first now the first is shrouded with endless light so
there’s there was a I don’t want to spoil too much basically but there’s a
curse that has shrouded the entire world in endless light so we as a player the
journey that were on is to restore darkness to the world like we want my
time to return because endless of light just like endless dark is not a good
thing along the way we have discovered that there are light wardens who are
making the light shine endlessly so while you’re leveling up through the
expansion Shadowbringers you go one at a time in each zone to defeat the light
wardens now the difference in fantasy xiv versus what the Warcraft is that the
story narrative and so on is a lot lot more scripted it’s a lot more
in-your-face compared to World of Warcraft so what a Warcraft there is a
lot of law but you can find out about the law and the world and so on as much
as you can but in pharmacy 14 there is a main scenario or main story quest line
which takes you through the entire world is voice acting for a lot of it or all
of it but for a lot of it there’s recognizable characters there’s a lot of
drama there’s a lot of turns and so on so if you start at Final Fantasy 14
today you’ve never played it before then you’re gonna have like three expansions
were four story to do to to hook catch up but that’s not necessarily a bad
thing by it is a great way to take you around all the zones of the world to
help you to explore and to really see the drama to see the what has been going
on there isn’t really any other MMO I know that does it as well this one of a
z14 does and hopefully it will set a let’s say a standard for the future
because at the end of the day it is an MMO RPG so I think a lot of the games in
the past have focused more on the MMO side
whereas 14 is trying to focus a lot on the RPG side while also allowing it to
be a massively multiplayer game now while I might see 14 of course I need to
say I’ve got more than 1400 videos about this game since it released
I really really actually didn’t like 1.0 so I I thought MMO sucks like 1.0 sucked
so but when 2.0 launched I became like a lot of people obsessed and have been
obsessed ever since now when it comes to any amer mouth it was always gonna be
let’s say dips or gaps in the development cycle so there’ll be a few
months here a few months there when there’s nothing going on and Naoki
Yoshida who is the producer and director of the game has said that it’s not his
intention for the players to play this game 20 hours a day you know I mean it’s
like that there are other things to do now this game has drawn a lot of
inspiration from World of Warcraft so when it was going through the the change
from 1.0 22.0 myopia she had got a lot of inspiration from World of Warcraft so
in order to play the game now shadow bringers itself it’s a great expansion
for any of them it’s probably like I think it’s like one of the best
expansions ever for any of them oh the music the soundtrack is amazing the
story is amazing everything is amazing and it really really increases the bar
or what expansions for mmo’s should be like let’s say so now in a moment we’re
gonna get on to while the Warcraft specifically the expansion Shadowlands
now like I said with with 14 basically there is a free trial as well so I’m
gonna make as many useful resources in the description down below for pharmacy
14 ok so as you can see this game came out in July now let’s move on to while
the Warcraft so as I say guys I like both games I want to make that very very
clear not biased thickener I am trying my best
I will try to make this as fair as possible
so Shadowlands is the next expansion of World of Warcraft it’s not actually come
out yet so but I wanted to make this video ahead of time because we’ve had
all the announcements as of last Blizzcon so Shadowlands the idea of the
game is is or Shadowland specifically is that the Shadowlands is like the
afterlife of the Warcraft universe so every time for example when you die in
World of Warcraft you have to run your spirit back to your body that place
where you are when you’re running your spirit back is the Shadowlands
so now what happens is for the story is Sylvanas who you can see walking on this
screen she is the leader of the undead she is a banshee who became a banshee
because of the Lich King and she goes to confront the Lich King as you can see
right here now in the past it would be deemed that it would be impossible for
someone like Sylvanas to take on the Lich King it just would be impossible
there’s no way but at the end of the wrath of the Lich King expansion which
came out previously the original lich king or well I would say the original
but the previous owner of the the helmet was called Arthas Menethil he was
defeated and the person who became the Lich King is bovar
now bovar as we can see in this trailer is a lot weaker than Arthas Menethil was
to make the point clear of how much I like this game much I like what the
Warcraft I you know that my name on YouTube or in 14 is me free mana fill so
many fill after office Menna fill the Lich King so I have always been a fan of
both games and I always will be so as we can see here they set up this idea that
Sylvanas is attacking the Lich King she wants she wants revenge on him but
in the Warcraft story if you look back at the old Warcraft story of Warcraft 3
for example there are some really good videos I’ll see if I can link one in the
description below as well of all the cutscenes of Warcraft 3 where basically
when the Lich King invaded Quelf alas which is the home of the the elves or
the blood elves who became the blood elves
so varnas was the head of the guard let’s say she was in charge of the
defense but the Lich King managed with the scourge managed to overwhelm them to
take over and that was while the lich king was on his way to the son wealth to
raise up quel facade but that’s something to look at if you look at the
Warcraft story and Cal facade was the last boss of naxxramas in the inn while
the Warcraft law now basically it’s the Lich King that turns all varnas into a
banshee so rather than just defeat her and kill her and so on he decided to
make her into a minion a banshee as you see and so on now since then if that
happened a long long time ago in the law in the story since then Sylvanas has
gained power from one of the old gods so you have many old gods in the game like
a phone and a few of them I won’t go into it too far but basically the reason
why she’s extra powerful these days is because of the old God now she has come
now you think when you’re watching this trailer at least what people forward
watching this trailer that she actually wanted to become the Lich Queen let’s
say that she was gonna put on the helmet and take all the powers of the Lich King
but that’s not the case at all she has got a completely different motivation
and what she’s doing so she at this moment which was a great moment to see
so we’ll see you in a moment it was really great god that’s giving me
shivers one it gets revenge on the Lich King but
two chatters the gap between the living world as a roth and the Shadowlands as
you can see the gap is now open and you can freely go between as or off the
World of the game and the Shadowlands so the expansion the Shadowlands is gonna
feature going to the Shadowlands and leveling up there and so on now
the thing with that is is the point of this is is that because you’re able to
go now to the Shadowlands effectively to the afterlife of World of Warcraft
technically there’s no reason why you can’t see all of the previous bosses all
the previous characters who have died and so on who were in World of Warcraft
in the in the past all of them technically could be available in
shallow lands so yeah so I’m really looking forward to it I really can’t
wait for Shadowlands I am very excited so now World of Warcraft specifically
like I said the story is is great the law is great but if the narrative is not
as set as final fantasy xiv it just isn’t like there isn’t like there is a
lot of questions a lot of reading but a lot of players most players I think will
just get through it they’ll just be like skip skip skip skip skip skip
whereas in 14 my you the story is more like I said is more
dealt with neatly let’s say but I would say not to ignore the law of what the
Walker after the great law in the game now in terms of mmo’s both of them they
both have crafting they both have gatherings they both have PvP they both
have raids they both have a lot of very similar features some like World of
Warcraft I would I feel does PvP better than Final Fantasy 14 on a fantasy xiv
does story better than while the Warcraft so there is a nice balance
between the two the community in Final Fantasy 14 I feel is kinder and more
gentle than the community of all the Warcraft but the people in World of
Warcraft now have been together the people have been playing the game since
the beginning have been together now for the last what 15 years so some people
have grown up together playing World of Warcraft so let’s say the loyalty
between the players in both games is extremely high so yeah so anyway guys I
could talk about both games all day I really really cold but I don’t want this
to turn into like a two-hour video I’m gonna link as many useful resources in
the description down below and to answer the question some people had this thing
of oh Final Fantasy 14 released shadow bringers therefore World of Warcraft
copied and released Shadowlands not at all but the Shadowlands existed on the
path for World of Warcraft years before like final fantasy xiv even existed and
the only same thing between shadow bringers and Shadowlands is that they
were both they both have the word shadow that’s it there’s no other similarities
between the two so 14 is complete like they said they’re completely different
games they’re both great and yeah so like I
said guys please be civil to each other you can
like both but no one says you have to like one over the other and so on
I am personally looking forward to Shadowlands it is not gonna take me away
from my enjoyment or shadow bring us simple as that so yeah so like I said
guys I could talk about this all day but you know I’ve got things to do you know
I mean I’m sure you all do too so anyway guys that’s it for this video thank you
