Nice catch on that detail. The next Expansion involving becoming a Warrior of Darkness has been foreshadowed too with the whole sub-plot between Heavensward and Stormblood. Return to Ivalice has been a nice set up as well since the map and Viera have been confirmed. Hopefully, the writing will go back to being as amazing as it was in HW.
"Final Fantasy XIV has a wonderful, compelling story —that’s no secret. But it’s hard to ignore how greatly improved the writing has gotten since its early days." Every aspect of FF14 has greatly improved since it's early days, story, dialogue, even the voice acting. I recently started up again on a new character and after finishing the 2.1 stuff, went back to my main and played from 4.3 onwards and there is such a huge difference in every regard. It's a shame so many FF fans are put off by the MMORPG aspect and/or try the game and judge it based on it's <50 content, FF14 is by far the best FF game in a long long time and has some of the best character development I've seen in a video game.
