The Lighting Returns campaign just started a few hours ago and I decided to login FFXIV and participate in the event with my linkshell mates. Lightning Strikes Chapter 1: For the Winsome was a bit of a let down, even for a low level event! I was hoping to see some new boss monsters shown in the trailer. Perhaps those will be available in the future Chapters, I hope. The first event was kind of boring, maybe it's because there was a crap load of players camping the FATE and a bunch of monkeys spamming level 50 spells for no reason. I've recorded a gameplay video of where Lightning spawns and which FATES to camp. Her FATE is not a 100% so you will most likely have to camp a while.
