  1. Aside from the re balancing of the job stuff which it honestly could use, it looks like the same exact thing as heavensward but a new area and story…and endgame is gonna keep chugging along as the same exact thing with new skins it seems.


  2. Scarlet was more of DANCER in the last movie… The lady in red was DANCING… I think DANCE is the key.

    1. I think she will be your next monk teacher, and maybe also reward a new emote dance for some quest.
