I didn't get too see a whole lot of the final event but I got a last look at Dalamud.
My entire LS kept logging in and and being kicked back off but we did get to fight some of the troops around Mor Dhona.
It was two frustrating hours of trying to stay logged in but once it was over we got to watch the most fantastically awesome video. Lots of people wept like children, including me.
I didn't make it to the live letter so hopefully they post it and I can see what I missed. I read the translations later and I can safely say I am more excited than ever to play A Realm Reborn.
Now we wait.....
