CONFIRMED: Shiva will snap her fingers for Diamond Dust in FFXIV

Patch 2.4

Rejoice, Final Fantasy fans. Some time ago we got confirmation that Shiva would be coming to Final Fantasy XIV in the form of boss fight, but one lingering question remained — will she snap her fingers for her Diamond Dust spell?

According to a recent developer’s update — yes, she will. The update also provides us with a few extra details on the creation process from a number of staff members (including some musings on how they hit “rock bottom” during the 1.0 era of FFXIV), so be sure to give it a read. I’m just glad that we can expect one of the most badass summons/Esper/Aeon ever in patch 2.4, which is set to arrive roughly in the next month or so.
