Final Fantasy XIV players have gone through so much. They’ve dealt with humanity-threatening primals, fire-breathing dragons, and other world-ending events. However, the most recent 5.35 update didn’t just bring a painful extreme battle for land, but it brought a killer red chocobo.
Red Comet Is Running Roughshod Over The Strongest Players
Imagine playing Final Fantasy XIV for years, staying subscribed through every patch, having the most optimal gear for the current patch, and getting a red chocobo run your face across hot asphalt.
After the tears dried from the great housing war of patch 5.35, players moved on to Bozjan Southern Front, where they were met with one of the greatest threats they’ve ever faced after years of saving the world: a red chocobo by the name of Red Comet.
It didn’t take very long for the FFXIV community to log into Twitter and share their experiences.
Apparently, Red Comet was so brutal it drew comparisons to the horrors of war. Nevermind the fact that the players and their characters actively fought in a warrior to liberate two different nations from the grips of the Empire; one red bird is equal to a hundred of those atrocities.
Some Twitter users channeled their trauma into art depicting Red Comet as anything other than the menacing creature he is.
