Australia is definitely getting the Royal Pack soon then.

What are the patch notes???
Australia will be getting it on midnight if its anything like last DLC, which is 11 hours away now, so we'll soon find out, its suppose to be huge DLC though, no one will get it completed in a day. Maybe the new dungeon, that apparently takes 2-3 hours, and that'll be the first thing I do and then the Comrades extra stuff which I should hopefully be able to unlock pretty fast as I have all that spare KW from trying to get Kenny to show up.

Actually, those that have the broken street date copies with the vouchers can download the DLC now. It bypasses the PSN store availability. The new update allows comparability with it

We'll likely see leaked stuff VERY soon

I play the chapter 10 right now. And yes. There are two new missions like the leaks.
And more people talk in the Cartanica Station, but the chapter is as short as before. You can see that they are working little by little on adding content to Cartanica in this video 1.21 Ver.

So we are 2 days out from the expansion and TBH I'm kind of tired of holding on to this dialogue due to PM's galore and just the idea of withholding info doesn't sit well with me. I will be doing multiple posts because its taking me a bit to get everything together. I'll also be posting some other stuff. Remember to take everything with salt until you witness the scenes for yourself.

Spoiler #1, I tried putting the dialogue in the best order I could. It's likely not at all in the right order.

Dialogue of Luna healing+fighting with Noctis and everyone.
Dialogue of Luna summoning bahamut (we don't know if its in the middle of a fight or just a cutscene yet)
Probably the saddest dialogue of Noctis saying goodbye to Luna :'(

The spoiler here was that Bahamut actually joins in on the daemon slaying (somehow).

The second spoiler is more substantial.
Looking at the Luna dialogue again...

These six lines are clearly battle cries:
  • I will protect you!
  • Let us strike as one!
  • Be healed.
  • An ill wind blows.
  • You shall perish!
  • Bask in the Light!
I'd be surprised if these aren't meant for use in Episode Luna and potentially Comrades.

The rest of them make her sound more like a summon. In three of these exchanges, she arrives and addresses one of the bros specifically, then seems to leave:
  • Luna!?
    The King is in my charge!
    I will fulfill my calling!
  • You're safe now, Prompto.
    L-Lady Lunafreya! You're a lifesaver.
    Be at peace.
    Thanks for the help.
    I'm pleased to be of service.
  • Luna!
    Are you okay?
    I am now... thanks to you.
    Good...
In the fourth, she addresses Noct and seems to stick around:
  • Noctis...
    Luna...
    It's really you!
    I shall fight at your side!
If she does stay on the field for a time, though, she needs departure dialogue... which could be this:
  • Almighty Bladekeeper, I call upon thee to dispell the darkness and return the Light to our world!
...in other words, she summons Bahamut, whose new "Megaflare" animation from the Royal Edition seems a lot easier to genericize than Ultima Sword.

I wonder if there's meant to be some kind of RNG element to Luna's appearance...

Yup, and right after these posts I also told @Storm that I found unused quest dialogue about looking at her dress again (probably was post game). You find a Sylleblossom there that you weren't supposed to find before.

Storm said OG had given him some text that seems to state that if you equip a Sylleblossom, you basically add her to your party (be it spirit I have no idea). With that she does Wind type attacks, heals people, forms barriers and protect (it looks like) and revives people.

Not sure when, how, or if this will be implemented but I found that quest dialogue in English, which could point towards something happening and it not being cut.

Could be a hint towards the new dlc's structure. For example luna playable sections through the game + adding her as a playable character post game.

Tbh I think it would be limited to only her. I agree though. Ardyn would make little sense and I can't see the rest of the DLC being about other characters specifically (just my opinion, but they said they want to stay away from that).

I actually hope that a Luna episode is part of the biggest free update we have yet to get in the game. Chapter 13v2 proved that it is possible to add more significant story content for free. The fact that I found her stuff in files before i could find any Episode Ardyn related stuff (save for sequence lines, but nothing related to actually playing him like Luna) leads me to actually suspect this.

Basically:
Ardyn: Paid DLC- 3-6 hours, new setting/open world, multi chapter story. Set in parts of the games second half (they said they don't to make DLC separate anymore, but they'd have to do this without spoiling his reveal if its integrated intonthe story.

Luna: Free Update- 1-2 hours, dungeon type(Related to awaking Ramuh and Angelgard like the cut concepts?). Set within a certain chapter before Altissia. Unlocks the Sylleblossom quest in post game of you do it. Can be played like Chapter 13 v2.

3 more DLC depicting other things. I think personally expanding the beginning (Prologue/Lucis), middle (Accordo), and end (Niflheim) would be the best route this game could go for those 3. Revamping how each of them is structured and updates the way the game is played. While I like character episodes, we need more for Noct to do, like the Royal Pack.

I think the first two are coming out at similar times. This could be why Tabata has been very coy about directly answering if Episode Luna is happening or not.

He said something about the next dlc (?) making you smile, could he mean luna free update? Because i don't see Ardyn's dlc making me smile lol.
And other than that luna playable is a pretty huge thing, I think they might rather add her for the second anniversary instead.

Exactly! I was so confused by that statement. I feel like something Related to Luna would make everyone smile. An update where you can play her and add her to your party post game would be nuggets.

On a kind of related note, what do you think we would get on the 2nd anniversary for ffxv? the last anniversary free update was character swap, which was mind blowing for everyone. Think anything could top that free update?

Maybe! Hopefully it would be something like Revamping the magic/summon system, or refining the games balance (not getting too OP from doing side quests) or a hard mode. Basically a reason to replay the game from the beginning? Hopefully they do all of this regardless though

Did you guys consider the possibility that some of the stuff you found are just scrapped content? (and never becoming real)
Except that almost everything is ready for the playable luna, it's under the label of GOTY so it's probably newly made.Why would they put so much work on lines, battle actions, item to add her just to scrap it?

maybe its for actual GOTY edition? Im pretty sure Royal Edition os not last one. XD
Lmao that would be kinda sad:/ But everything else that came true was labeled under GOTY so that's why that Luna leak has so much backing.

Tbh I feel like it was supposed to be part of the Royal Pack, but at some point they decided that it would be better as a separate update. That is my guess to what happened with this.

Another thing, there's almost nothing in the English data files that are cut (i spent over over 20 hours looking through it on my spare time these past 2 weeks, it sucked I will never againXDD). And things that were found were either added this patch (Chapter 5 and chapter 10 dialogues added) or have the possibility to be added eventually (The pocket edition Ardyn dialogue is there I think).

I'd say it's safer that this "to be added" content and not "cut" content imo

Hmm, also I seem to remember someone saying there would be a cutscene viewer but it seems that never came to fruition either. A future update perhaps?

Yes, that's what I think as well. It's very unrealistic to think that the only things we can see from the datamine were just this patches updates. It's also very likely other updates in the near future were already part of that data.
