Final Fantasy XIV’s newest Patch 6.3 “Gods Revel, Lands Tremble” options new principal situation quests, a 24-player alliance raid dungeon, amongst many different tweaks and additions to the MMO. Really, although, it must be known as “Baos Split, Tummies Rumble” as gamers have found the true spotlight: a bao bun animation that’ll go away your salivary glands twitching. It’s lovely. Magnificent. Almost NSFW.
Look, no look on the bun animation. Really soak up each little element, like the way in which a break up first types on the backside earlier than the crack naturally strikes upwards and provides method to the bun’s shiny innards. Look on the approach the steam bursts outwards! Look on the layer of meat and the way it mirrors the curvature of the torn deal with.

Thanks to this beautiful Fanbyte article, I’ve found that the bun is predicated off the Filipino siopao. So it isn’t simply any previous dumpling, however a particular one at that. Do give the article a look for those who’re taken with discovering out a bit extra about its historical past.
Alright, sure, there are different issues within the patch too, I suppose. For these invested in the primary story, there’re some new quests involving “a half-voidsent girl named Zero”. A brand new dungeon known as Lapis Manalis takes you as much as an deserted village within the mountains of Garlemald and appears set to characteristic some demonic yetis. Part 2 of the “Myths Of The Realm” raid arrives too, whose beautiful golden pastures give method to a horrible shadow realm. Of course, there’s many different tweaks, all of which you could find within the patch notes.
Maybe the great thing about the bao bun animation marks the start of a redemption arc for FFXIV foodstuffs? In a earlier Endwalker patch, gamers mourned the lack of their beloved low poly grapes whose exhausting edges had been rounded off to “alleviate reminiscence utilization”. Now, maybe, the jiggling dumpling and its sensible break up may also help these nonetheless “grapeving” (grape-grieving) to maneuver on and discover love once more.
