Salutations from the bunker. We’re all maintaining our appropriate social distance (of at least 300 miles, in our case) to bring you this latest episode! Turns out that, perhaps given other circumstances, we have next-to-no details about patch 5.25 in spite of Square’s usual practice of Live Letters and content dumps, so we do our best to talk around that and speculate on what exactly it will look like. Of course we’ll all have access to 5.25 by the time this episode reaches your electronic device of choice, so maybe give us a listen while you get on that initial relic grind? There’s additional chatter about Pan’s idiotic Mentor Roulette quest and some Easter event chat too, if that’s more your thing.
