Large Sippin, Mountain Dew’s mascot in Ultimate Fantasy XIV, could possibly be a legacy participant – Destructoid

The Mountain Dew x Ultimate Fantasy XIV promotion has taken the gaming world by storm, inflicting the start of memes and dialogue throughout the web. Nevertheless, one factor appears to be drawing extra consideration than the rest for the time being — Large Sippin. 

Large Sippin is Mountain Dew’s in-game character mascot for the promotion. A degree 81 (on the time of writing) Bard, dressed completely in inexperienced and setting out on his adventures throughout Eorzea. Gamers have begun to obsessively stalk his FC home (the FC known as Home of Sippin, for these , and the home is situated on Hyperion – Goblet, Ward 21, Plot 9 – if you wish to be a part of within the stalking), and Mountain Dew is sharing Large Sippin’s progress over on their Twitter web page. 

Nevertheless, one factor has drawn my consideration (and the eye of just a few different gamers) – Large Sippin, regardless of his lack of truly having performed the sport, seems to be a Legacy Participant. 

For many who don’t know, to be thought-about a Legacy Participant, the participant will need to have performed Ultimate Fantasy XIV for at the least 90 days previous to the Eighth Umbral Calamity and the discharge of A Realm Reborn again in 2013. This has raised some questions, and my love for researching unusual occasions led me down a little bit of a bizarre wormhole in search of solutions.

The rationale that persons are beginning to assume that Large Sippin could be a Legacy Participant is down to 2 issues which may be discovered on his Lodestone profile:

  • They’ve the Cait Sith Doll minion, which was solely ever obtainable as a pre-order bonus for A Realm Reborn
  • They’ve a Legacy Chocobo mount, which is just owned by gamers who had been round pre-A Realm Reborn

Now, I’m going to be trustworthy and say that I’m 99% certain that Large Sippin shouldn’t be a real Legacy Participant. For starters, he solely has three DoW/DoM Jobs unlocked (Bard at degree 81, Sage at degree 70, and Conjurer at degree 22), and I’m wholly satisfied that Bard has been degree skipped as a way to be used for Mountain Dew‘s promotional functions.

The Soul Stone for Bard is inexperienced, so it suits the theme. Sage unlocks at degree 70, so there’s no development there and whereas it does appear to be Large Sippin has at the least performed a little bit as Conjurer, he hasn’t progressed far sufficient to realize his Soul Stone. 

It’s extra possible that this can be a loaner account from Sq. Enix that was used for testing functions or comparable earlier than A Realm Reborn was launched. Or, if you’d like me to don my tin foil hat, this might simply be a brand new account with a few pink herring gadgets added to spark dialog amongst gamers who look into it. If that’s the case, then I assume it labored as a result of right here we’re.
