A Last Fantasy 14 participant has develop into the primary within the massively multiplayer role-playing recreation’s 10-year historical past to finish each at the moment obtainable achievement.
The feat — completed by a Japanese participant on the Garuda server, enjoying a cute Lalafell character — concerned ticking off a minimum of 2,751 achievements throughout the sport and all of its expansions. In an MMO like FF14, achievement looking presents a transferring goal, as new achievements are added with each enlargement (and typically even in patches in between).
What actually makes this such an immense endeavor is Last Fantasy 14’s stringent achievement design. World of Warcraft, for instance, has gathered practically 5,000 achievements throughout all its expansions. However, whereas uncommon, it’s not unparalleled for WoW gamers to max out each present achievement within the recreation.
Redditor PrismaticParrot laid out only a number of the duties the participant would have needed to full, and it’s an eye-watering record. Naturally it consists of many endgame feats, resembling acquiring each single relic weapon from each enlargement, finishing all 5 final raids, and soloing all three Deep Dungeons, in addition to racking up 1000’s of victories within the recreation’s player-versus-player modes.
However getting each achievement additionally encompasses a mind-numbing quantity of grind. The Garuda participant should have found a minimum of 20,000 accursed hoard chests from the Deep Dungeons, mentored gamers who requested for assist 2,000 occasions in mentor roulettes, and killed 5,000 rank S marks and 10,000 rank A marks.
After which there are levequests. These easy, repeatable quests are a manner of grinding out expertise in lots of actions within the recreation, together with fight and commerce professions. However they’re time-gated, that means gamers can solely full so a lot of them over time. Resulting from this, PrismaticParrot estimates it will take a minimal of seven years to tick off each levequest achievement in Last Fantasy 14.
Now that’s dedication — a gaming challenge so long-term that it should have taken the vast majority of the 10 years since Last Fantasy 14’s 2013 relaunch to finish. If it’s doable to 100% full an MMO, the Garuda participant has completed it — for now. Last Fantasy 14’s subsequent enlargement, Dawntrail, launches subsequent yr, and it’ll convey extra achievements with it.
