Balmung World First in Final Fantasy XIV Ishgard Restoration

In the 1987 movie The Princess Bride there is a standoff between the hero and one of the villians, Vizzini, where the villian sits across from the hero, Westley, and tells him:

“You’ve fallen for one of the two classic blunders! The first being never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly lesser known: never go in against a cicelean when DEATH is on the line!”

Last night, I paraphrased that quote as I called out:

“I’d just like to note that we did better in the challenge than Vizzini, and… Never go up against a Balmungian when HOUSING is on the line!

Housing is not stated as one of the rewards for the rebuilding of the firmanment, but there is a strong hope that drives man workers that a residential district in Ishguard might be a hidden end result of the reconstruction effort.

The stated rewards are awesome, particularly the new lean emote and the new workers outfit. And those who strive to work on the rebuilding and to earn the rewards get the added perk of gaining levels on their gatherers and crafters. So, whatever the end result of the reconstruction progress it is a wonderful addition to the game and one that I am proud to have participated in and been present for the final stage of the reconstruction of Mendicant’s Court.

As I write this the feelings of acomplishment are strong for the workers of Balmung that achieved world first on completion of the project’s first stage. Way to go, Balmung! Let’s keep this achievement up and prove to everyone that you don’t go up against a Balmungian when HOUSING is on the line.
