U7Buy is an exclusive online site where FFXIV Gils are sold for absurdly cheap and competitive prices! Today, with the upcoming release of the game’s latest expansion, Endwalker, we will be diving into a summarized narrative of everything that has happened in FFXIV up until now.

The never-ending strife and conflict between the Eorzean Alliance and the Garlean Empire is finally looking to reach its end after the imminent arrival of FFXIV’s latest expansion, Endwalker.


With a profound narrative now interwoven with your character’s own progression ever since the game’s first release – A Realm Reborn – it is unquestionable that new players can become confused in all the different events that have happened spanning multiple expansions of Heavensward, Stormblood and Shadowbringers (current expansion).


Here, we’ll be looking back at to all the overall plotlines of each game expansion, and how it all relates to one another in the end:




The beginning of all your adventures in Eorzea, you start off by creating the ideal character for your journeys ahead.


Once set, it would seem that you are constantly troubled by mysterious visions of an unknown origin, all while growing your character into a respected journeyman across the land.


Throughout your new endeavours, you repeatedly find yourself crossing paths against enigmatic robed people who seem intent on disrupting your quests and missions.


After a fated encounter with an individual from the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, you eventually accept an invitation to be inducted as a Scion too, seeking to uncover the hidden agendas behind the early robed, masked men – immortal people known as Ascians.


It is also revealed that your ‘nightmares’ are none other than the messages given to you by the world goddess, Hydaelyn herself.


It is found that the Beastman tribes are summoning their own deities known as Primals to empower the rise of their people once more.


All this is aided and manipulated by the Ascians themselves, who have their own hidden reasons for transpiring to summon the Primals into existence.


While all this is happening, Eorzea’s neighbouring rival, the Galean Empire, has also enacted their own potential demise of the Beastmen tribe and Eorzea as well – the deployment of the Ultima Weapon.


With this latest threat, all the city-states of Eorzea jointly formed a resistance force to stop the impending Garlean attack, with you at the frontlines.


Through various hardships and numerous allied sacrifices, you finally led the victory against the Garlean’s Ultima Weapon, subsequently ending the conflict while also being heralded as a Warrior of Light.


Although things seem to be at peace for now, the Ascians are still roaming at large and continue to conspire with other forces seemingly to unearth an even more deadly plan which has been years in the making.


Continue to tune in to us for Part 2 of this mini-story flashback, with the next one focusing more on the game’s first expansion, Heavensward!
