The Unending Coil of Bahamut (Ultimate) cleared!
Curia Regis' first Free Company group, KaibaCorp, has cleared The Unending Coil of Bahamut (Ultimate) on 4/18/18. This fight was one of the harder encounters the group has come up against, but in the end it was worth the time spent! We're all looking forward to the next ultimate encounter in patch 4.31.
All three groups clear Omega Savage!
Kaiba Corp: July 24th!
3 Fairies and Friends: August 3rd!
Goldfish: August 23rd!
Curia Regis is now 3 years old!
As of a few days ago anyway, I honestly forgot the date was coming up. Does not seem like it's been 3 years, but I guess time does fly when you are enjoying yourselves. Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the Free Company who has made this the greatest experience in online gaming I have ever had, and I hope we can continue it for years more to come! I've added the "veteran member" status in game for all of our raiders that have been with us for 2 years or more to commemorate how appreciative we are of your contribution to Curia Regis. Now please enjoy a nostalgia screen dump of some of my memories from these past 3 years:
Here's me creating our linkshell in open beta before we were able to make free companies. 2 AM.. We used to wake up at that time a lot during early beta and early release.
Here's us doing Ultima and completing the MSQ after we all just hit 50.
Our first Titan HM was pretty close...
Turn 1 was fun. We went in blind and came out 4 hours later with our first ever raid clear for the FC. Back then our raid group was known as "Amateur Hour".
First Twintania kill... we almost enraged it. I thought we were going to lose. We ended up getting server second, but it ended up being enough to cause people to pay attention to us on the server. After that, I think everyone know the name Curia Regis on Midgardsormr. We didn't disappoint next tier.
Our first T9 was close too... seems to be a common theme here. This was our first server first win on a final boss! I was so excited when we won I knocked my desk chair over and scared the heck out of my dog... Good times.
Second Coil (Savage) in i110 was an amazing challenge... KaibaCorp was the only group on the server to clear any of the fights in i110. Turn 8 Savage is probably still my favorite fight to date in this game because of how team oriented it was.
Turn 13 was our second final fight server first, and the first time the FC took all 4 fights server first. We were about 0.000001 seconds away from dying to enrage... I felt like I was going to pass out. It felt amazing to finally have a raid tier where the FC had our names stamped on every fight for server first.
Gordias was probably one of our most dominant performances, we were over a month ahead of every other group on the server for A4S. This was the first time that my group, KaibaCorp, was able to clean sweep an entire tier as a group for server first. This tier was grueling and I still view it as as the hardest challenge I've ever encountered in FFXIV. I doubt it will ever be topped.
Midas was a very challenging tier, and I think it was probably the best teamwork building we've done since A3S and Turn 8 Savage because it was so heavily focused on mechanics. We clinched our third final fight server first in a row. And that's where we are today! Will we get our fourth before the sun rises on the horizon of 4.0? We'll find out!
Patch 3.4 launches on Tuesday, September 27th!
It feels like it's been a very long time since we've had big news for FFXIV, but we finally got it last night!
With the official release date of Patch 3.4 on the horizon, we are very excited to tackle the challenges that await us in the final tier of the Alexander raid series. The 3.0 raid series has definitely been more challenging than 2.0's raids, and it's been a fun ride that has caused all of us to struggle and grow as players as well as strengthen our bonds of friendship. We can't wait to see how they plan to wrap up the 3.0 raid series as we begin our transition into 4.0, with yet another expansion and a new set of raids to look forward to. We'll see you all in Alexander: The Creator (Savage)!

Heavensward hits and Ravana (Extreme) downed - Server first!
Over the past few days everyone in the Free Company has been working hard to level up and get geared after the release of Heavensward. We were all chomping at the bit to go hard when servers came up, and some of us have only really been taking brief power naps ever since. Expansions make this kind of mad dash insanely fun though, and I know everyone is enjoying themselves immensely with the new content.
We were proud to have our own Kyne Lyons achieve server first level 60 on his Paladin. Everyone was very impressed with his ability to beast-mode level so fast while being solo. Everyone else also worked hard and I know for a fact we had the first 6 or so level 60's on the server, so good job guys!
We've also been working on the Extreme Primals. This afternoon we cleared Ravana (Extreme) for the first time, and ended up killing it a total of 10 times to get everyone in the party their i190 weapons, which are currently the best in the game! This brave group of 8 is ready for Alexander! Kill video is below the picture. Alexander in two weeks!
With a new Website and 3.0 looming, Curia Regis is looking Heavensward!
With the torrent of new information resulting from yesterday's Producer Live Letter entitled "Heavensward: part 1", the community is buzzing with news, speculation, and excitement. The hype is real, as they say, and in less than a month we'll be able to cut our teeth on much of the new content FFXIV's first ever expansion will have to offer. As this will be the game's first expansion, it will set the tone for the rest of FFXIV's lifespan; needless to say, we're ready for it!
Curia Regis is still standing strong almost two full years later. When Valk, Mitsukai and I came together to found this guild in June of 2013, we envisioned a community that maintained excellent standards, pushed raid content at a fast pace while still respecting real life obligations, and was a family unit that looked out for one another. I can happily say that these pillars that our community was founded on are still holding us up today.
Many of you have been with us for quite a long time, and I wanted to once again offer up my thanks to you all for making this the best community I've been apart of in any MMO I've ever played in my 10+ years of online gaming. CR wouldn't be what it is without all of you - Don't ever forget that. As we move forward on to bigger and better things in the realm of FFXIV and as a community, we break ground on a new website and forum that is more fitting of our needs.
As 3.0 draws ever closer, we are still in need of skilled players who are seeking a progression oriented Semi-Hardcore environment. Please browse around, and if we seem like the home you've been looking for then don't forget to check out our recruitment forums!
With so much excitement on the horizon, it's hard to not be anxious. As we move towards the future, Curia Regis is looking Heavensward, and I can only imagine what adventures await us. See you in Ishgard!
