IMPORTANT: After buying this, you must right click FF14 on your steam library, click on View CD key, then go to Square enix mog station website, log in, go to "Your account" and choose to enter the code for the expansion. Then your account is officially upgraded to heavensward.

Enjoy the new main menu music, new story, new clases, new mounts (with their own theme songs while riding), new dungeons/raids/primals (if you are tank prepare yourself, enemies hit hard even if you have the recommended item level)

One of the greatest games in the MMORPG genre sure it has a monthly fee but the developer's deliver tons and tons of content each month making it well worth your money and effort to play this game, it also has alot of replayability since any 1 character can play any class at any single time and having 1 high lvl class helps your low lvl classes lvl up much faster.
Personally I already have 6 lvl 50+ classes giving me tons of exp bonuses for my other low lvl classes.
You can do just about anything in this game, tons of worker classes even fishing xD and they all have their own distinct quest lines to follow.
Also if your High lvl and you want to do dungeons with your friends who are low lvl they have a Sync system that virtually lowers your lvl enough to the default necesary for said dungeon that way you cant "Break" the dungeon just cause you were a higher lvl.
Even former WOW players came to this game, its just that good.
The full controller support is a definite bonus since I used to play it on my PS3 and was accustomed to the controls there now im on PC and I can still use my controller.
For my final comment Ill just say this, It would be a mistake not to atleast try this game out, I mean there is a free trial for a reason :P

EVERYONE HAVING ISSUES USING THE STEAM DLC CODE IN THEIR PREVIOUS MOG STATION ACCOUNTS HERE IS HOW YOU CAN GET YOUR STEAM DLC TO WORK

go to: http://support.na.square-enix.com/faqarticle.php?id=5382&kid=73282

look under, if you follow the link in sub para 2, and click on the "Enter the Registration Code for the Expansion" you can input your steam DLC code. I just successfully added mine 5 minutes ago


Steam Version
How to register:
1. Steam users who have purchased FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward on Steam can find their20-digit registration code by opening Steam, navigating to the Library tab, and selecting “FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.” On the right-hand side of the game page, find the “Links” section and select “CD key.” The 20-digit game code will be listed there.
2. Log in to the Mog Station (http://sqex.to/Msp) using the Square Enix Account you wish to register Heavensward to.
3. Select the"Your Account" tab on the top-left corner of the screen.
4. Select the service account you wish to register your code on. If you have multiple service accounts (represented as tabs named FINAL FANTASY XIV 1, 2, etc.), please select the service account that contains the characters you wish to access Heavensward with. If you only possess one service account, proceed to Step 5.
* Please verify that the service account you have selected displays the character names and Worlds that you wish to grant access to Heavensward content.
* Please be careful, as Heavensward access will only be granted to the service account that you select. Other services accounts will need a separate purchase of Heavensward in order to receive access.
5. After confirming your service account, select the "Enter the Registration Code for the Expansion" button.
6. Enter your 20-digit registration code, then click “Next.”
* Please make sure the letters are capitalized when entering the registration code.
7. Confirm details, then click “Next.”

It's really amazing how much better this DLC is than the main game. Don't get me wrong, the base game is really great, loads of fun, but...Whoa. This DLC just has a better soundtrack, a better story, more awesome abilities that make even a Summoner an actual good DPS-I mean...Cool new abilities! Yaaaaay! Ahem...and they even have new voice actors. Which are way better in my Opinicus(heh, geddit), but whatever.

Bottomline, everything leading up to the Heavensward main story, and Heavensward itself, is possibly the greatest content this game has to offer...For now, becasue if you ask me, it has gotten better with every patch. And remember, kids:

Only buy this on Steam if you bought the original game on here, and vise-versa. You shouldn't have a problem with the content level 50-60 being locked behind the base game's story -- you did keep up with your story quests, yeah?

As others have said, game is unplayable if you have an existing Square Enix account. DLC registration code provided, does not match the format accepted by Square Enix.

THIS IS IMPORTANT:

You NEED to catch up before buying Heavensward, the content of Heavensward and the 3 new classes CANNOT BE ACCESSED UNLESS YOU ARE COMPLETELY CAUGHT UP IN THE MAIN QUEST.

From Ultima Weapon to Heavensward there are NINETY FIVE (95) QUESTS. Buy it once you're caught up, don't buy it if you're 200 hours away of actually accessing the new stuff, if thats why you're buying the game. BE WARNED.

Its totally worth it by the way.

WARNING, DO NOT BUY THIS DLC FROM STEAM UNLESS YOU'VE CREATED YOUR ACCOUNT AFTER BUYING THE BASE GAME ON STEAM. IT WILL NOT WORK

If you created an FFXIV account before buying the game on steam (like, if you had the game on PS3/PS4) you have to buy the DLC on Mogstation. Or else it simply won't be compatible

Woohoo! I am super excited about this expansion release for a few reasons:

1. The level cap has been increased.

2. Flying has been added!

3. New jobs! Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist.

4. New race of dragon people called the Au Ra.

5. More lore, more content, zones, more everything!

That being said:

FFXIV isn't a game for everyone. In fact, I haven't found many neutral opinions about it. People either seem to love it or hate it. Some of the reasons people dislike it are actually the reasons why I DO like it.

I love the artwork, the story, and the people. I also love the hard work you have to put into things so that they feel rewarding and not having it just handed to you. The player base seems a bit more mature than other games. I also love that I don't have to have alts to try new things since I can learn every class and crafting skill on the same toon.

Some folks claim there is a grind, but honestly after playing the first Everquest for several years(remember when you could get kicked by a snake?), nothing has ever been a grind to me so maybe I'm desensitized.

'Gil sellers' can be a little annoying if you roll on a low pop server, so it is easier to avoid them by waiting until the realm restrictions are removed in the wee small hours of the morning to roll your character. In the past month, I've only gotten ONE gil selling whisper.

If you absolutely must play on the lower pop realms, just know that you will be getting whispered a lot so keep that in mind. If you don't want to be bothered by it I really strongly suggest rolling on the Balmung server.

The community is pretty good too. I almost never see people being rude or hateful to others. In fact, I have only seen one person having a public melt down over drama and the community was able to talk them down to a calm state. It was both scary and amazing haha.

For more in depth information on all the new features/artwork I mentioned here, visit the expansion URL over at the Square Enix FFXIV site:

Fair warning, if you purchase this expansion you have to make sure you have a lvl 50 character and have passed the story to a certain point. I won't say which point so as to avoid spoilers but if you want to know what part of the story, you have to google that yourself.

Goodbye WoW! Where have I been for the past 2 or so years? Not on FFXIV, where I should have been in the first place. I should have said goodbye to WoW long before WoD but 5.4 blindsided me and then WoDs nostalgia got me. But now - goodbye and good riddance. This game easily tops it -- especially now. A Realm Reborn alone topped MoP overall and WoD easily, whereas Heavensward blows WoW straight out of the water altogether. I'll never look back.

The expansion is well built. New race, more gear, raised level cap (60 now), 3 new jobs, and a ton of more content. That being said, you can't experience ANY of it unless you are level 50 with at least one class and have done the 100 or so lv50 story quests. I recommend this, but only if you are level 50. Other than that, wait to purchase this.
