How long will the FFXIV Endwalker Main Story be ?

Endwalker is coming in just a few days and if you're wondering how long will the Final Fantasy XIV MSQ take before your can go and level-up your Reaper or Sage, here's everything we know so far.

With less than 70 hours before the release of Endwalker for Final Fantasy XIV the main story will surely be very important to be able to progress through the game. Just like with Shadowbringers most of the content will be locked behind the story.

We already know that the story will be around 30% longer, be it cutscene or pure quests if you're planning on reading everything, the word count will definitely be higher.

But how long will that take? The Shadowbringers story is 105 quests long if you only include what's been published with patch 5.0 and from then on there are two options:

  • The quest number stay the same and the cutscenes are longer/more cutscenes
  • There are more quests.

If you're planning on reading and watching everything, be it one or the other will not change that you will spend more time clearing the MSQ. On the other hand, skippers will have a very different experience with one option or the other. If there are more cutscene the speedrun will be about the as with Shadowbringers, however more quests would mean more time to skip it all.

From experience, the complete shadowbringers 5.0 story should be around 12 hours, dungeons excluded so you could expect something a little longer than that for Endwalker.

I will have to skip everything this time to be able to write all the content guides quickly enough so I will make sure to update you on how long it took me to complete the 6.0 quests.
