A gateway to it can be found at the bottom floor of the Crystal Towerbut the Eureka Key is required. Doga and Unei unlock the Eureka Key, and give it to the Warriors of the Lightgranting them access to Eureka, knowing they need better equipment to fight Xande. This equipment was sealed away long ago because considered too powerful for humans to behold.
In the final area of Eureka the player can find three shopkeepers selling some of the best spells, summons, and equipment in the game.
It is also worth noting that this is the only place where Shuriken can be purchased, though at a ridiculously high price.

It occurs to me that no one bothered to tell you the name of the island we mean to explore. Am I correct?
It's a bit grandiose and melodramatic, but we've tentatively named it for a place from Allagan legend. A forbidden land where fearsome weapons were hidden away for safekeeping We call it Added in Patch 4. Though it pulls from Final Fantasy III in its name and in the concept of an extensive side area you can explore, the plot primarily includes references to Final Fantasy V.
The player works with Krile to find out what happened to the Students of Baldesion after the disappearance of the Isle of Val, complete with flashbacks involving her grandfather. This once prosperous capital of the Kashka Dynasty was destroyed in the Cataclysm, along with the vast legacy of its royal family. It is now a necrohol, populated by spirits drawn to the shades of its past glory.
The Forbidden Land Eureka was mentioned as one of the wonders. Sign In Don't have an account? Start a Wiki. Contents [ show ].

Fifth Area, guarded by Kunoichi. Sixth Area, guarded by General.The 4. Announced back in with the Stormblood expansion and delayed several times over the past year and change, Eureka is a zone where players can grind for powerful gear.
Grind is the operative term here. There are no sidequests. No special events, save the occasional spawning of a powerful creature requiring a large group of players to take it down. Eureka is a large map filled with enemies to kill and not much else. Players battle to increase their elemental experience level, a special Eureka-only progression mechanic, allowing them to fight more challenging enemies and maybe gather those crystals required for the new powerful equipment just a bit faster.
But nothing about Eureka feels particularly fast. The creatures here are tough, encouraging players to team up, but they are not tough in an interesting way. Eureka introduces an elemental affinity mechanic, allowing players to spend points to increase either their resistance or damage done to creatures of similar or opposing elements.
That sounded interesting, but in practice it feels like an unnecessary complication. The Forbidden Land of Eureka is not one of them. Kotaku elder, lover of video games, keyboards, toys, snacks, and other unsavory things. The A. Shop Subscribe. Read on. Subscribe To Our Newsletter.
I recall Yoshida mentioning keeping an eye on this guy's story very shortly before the release of Stormblood.
It may just refer to his new dialogue about not wanting to be the khan of the Adarkim, and I'm probably reaching, but I just had the thought.
It is pretty intriguing. To be honest I didn't expect much story with Eureka. I though it would just be a farming zone like diadem. This however has got me pretty interested. It looks like they might have a solid story to it. Shame we still have 4 to 6 weeks or so before we see it though. Unfortunately the clip showing krile is voiced over by yugiri referring to gotsetsu's return.
Even if it doesn't involve Krile, the rest of it still fits. As far as I know there isn't any other stories taking place in Sharlayan ruins this patch. Another slight bump in this road Originally Posted by Okamimaru.

Similar to Palace of the Dead in FFXIV, Eureka features a separate leveling system, which means that every player starts at level 1 when they first enter. This will give you the most experience. However, avoid fighting enemies that have already been claimed or tagged by other players or parties. Exploring Eureka with a group is definitely far more efficient. If you have four people in your party, you should take on enemies that are at your level, or are one level higher than you.
The experience gained is split between all party members, but because you can build your chain quickly, the leveling process should go by much faster than if you were playing FFXIV solo. Most players have reported that full parties can level up efficiently by taking on enemies that are about four levels higher than them to maximize the experience gained.
Page 1 of 3 1 2 3 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 10 of Thread: Eureka Finale. Eureka Finale So this will be spoilers of Hydatos's story on Eureka some particulars have been gone over in other threads i won't touch on them here.
So I picked the sacrifice Ejika side of the story and it felt actually worthwhile to do so i was getting annoyed with Ejika through both Anemos and Pagos and just sighed when he turned during Pyros but Hydatos actually surprised me with how the story was and left me wondering why couldn't the other 3 installments have been as engaging as this one.
It was nice to see someone using their head a lot more to tackle a foe they couldn't hope to stop alone but it left me pondering how did Ejika resist the primal Eureka's influence while wielding a weapon with its essence much like they pointed out it was similar to Zanzetsuken.
The conclusion that i got felt heartfelt and made me feel like Krile might grow as a person. Then i went and cleared BA and got to see the true end to Eureka so Krile learns how to bring people back from the lifestream from Kan-E-Senna so i'm glad that is teachable and not a Padjal exclusive ability may mean more shenanigins with lifestream hopping with flow etc in the future who knows, she learns this because she theorized that Ejika might still be brought back when all of the primal Eureka's weapon aether was gone this works ofc and we learn that Ejika thought it was a possibility but resigned himself to Death.
Suffice it to say from the Ejika sacrifice route this feels worse than the base ending of Hydatos. Also how do people feel that story segments are hidden behind something like BA? I feel like we need more story locked behind some difficulty. Helps giving meaning and weight to the plot outcomes and characters deepening the bond between the player and the lore. Of course not everything, but the game been lacking some of this since mid Heavensward.
That aside, my toughts in the story itself:. I don't like that they give us the branch out option just for the finale to merge it all. That aside, depending what you pick you get a great scene before or after. And it's quite nice. Also Odin finally gets a closure of its origins and purpose.
The mysterious entity regonized as an Elder Primal is a one of many powerful primal-like weapon forged by Eureka itself. Raiden quotations are also quite nice, it talks about defeating the Empire.
Guess the Allagans were truly unbeatable to the point that not even a primal with the power to create a new star could stop them. Another cool lore bit from the Arsenal is Proto-Ozma. From the text of the Mount aquired by defeating the dungeon it reveals that the Sharlayan knew of what Ozma from Mhach was originally, but also had enough of an understanding of how it worked to create a Demi-Ozma.
Funny enough Proto-Ozma is more powerful than Ozma by being a creation of Eureka and the Mhachians attempted to recreate it.
FFXIV: Tales from Eureka
What's your first impression of Eureka? All the zerging was hurting my eyes so I just left my party and logged off after I had enough. It was getting pretty fast boring. Its just hitting mops and hoping the RNG is on your side.
No fun at all. From the sound of things, glad I'm no longer subbed. I'll probably be back for the story eventually. I believe I might have to avoid this discussion.
If the thread fills with nothing but 'boring' posts and 'massive failure', I'm likely not going to try it before I get home Originally Posted by MomomiMomi. After an hour I have no desire to do it again. Protean drops are way to low and XP gain is so slow its laughable. Mobs aren't difficult because everyone just zergs stuff down. I'm not sure who the target audience is for this but its not me. Eureka is everything I was afraid it would be and no redeeming qualities to it.
Originally Posted by ServerCollaps.Amoon was quite keen on trying it out last night, and I was interested to see what it was like, too. Eureka was pretty much what I expected.
They likened it to open world FFXI leveling from back in the day. Folks complain about the grind for relic. But relic is always a grind. In fact, I welcome more open world content, even with the trouble it brings more on that later. I certainly can handle heading out with a little group of FC folks to pull mobs and nuke them down for a hour or so here and there.
It was a nice change of pace. Some only understand zerg or speedrun. So find yourself a safe spot to call a base point and have a tank pull things to your group. Players have to figure out how to do things without a duty finder matching them. Behavior has consequences. So, my FC team found this safe little flat rock area to set up our pull spot.
We were doing well, making chains, and just learning how the system worked. Most other groups were minding their own business, aside from the occasional zerg group running through. There was a Dark Knight and a Bard who come rushing into our area and just started killing anything we pulled. Basically, they were leeching off our XP over and over again.
At first, I wondered if was by accident, but they kept it up. So we moved around to the other side of the rock, giving up our nice spot. Very quickly, they attracted more mobs than they could handle, and unlike us, they had no healer.
