Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is bringing a massive amount of new content with it, and if you’re already knee-deep in the trenches, no doubt you’ve heard about the special Artifact Gear that you’ll receive when you reach level 70.

Artifact Armor or “Gear” refers to "iconic" armor sets available for each job that are given out through main story quests. Each job has a special set that has features akin to the job, such as a "gallant" set for paladins and "fighter" items for a warrior. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood features a set of this armor when you get to level 70 as well, and it’s totally awesome, especially for fans of the classic Final Fantasy games.
