June 16, 2017
Beginning Approximately 7:00am Eastern
Commentary will be on and off, but chat will be available
Cut scenes will be skipped to avoid as many spoilers as possible
Game play will be on Playstation 4
I will be playing on my dragoon, moving through the main story quests and the dragoon job quests as they come up. Commentary will be on and off depending on my streaming environment (I have kids.. and there is no school 🙂 )
The stream will be on the JZH Gaming YouTube Channel, and chat will be available regardless of whether or not commentary is on.
The Non-Disclosure Agreement got lifted today, so a lot of twitch, YouTube and Reddit users who have gotten first hand experience of the changes coming to FFXIV with Stormblood are releasing information. Here are some links:

There are some exciting changes coming with Stormblood – both to existing classes/jobs plus the addition of Red Mage and Samurai. Along with this, new main story quests and a new raid is on the horizon. Early Access begins on June 16, just over two weeks away.
My plan is to have streams going all day, both with and without commentary through Discord. These streams will be spoiler heavy – though I haven’t decided if I will skip cut scenes or not (for those who don’t know, you can go back and view all of the cut scenes you have already scene/skipped). I will be streaming through YouTube as usual.
My plan on Stormblood progression, without knowing too much of what is going to happen upon its release, but basing it off of Heavensward’s release from two years ago, is to get through the MSQ as quickly as possible on my Dragoon, then decide if I want to level Red Mage or Samurai – leaning towards Red Mage.
