The Final Fantasy 14 crew has been importing photos of assorted characters doing issues at residence, a method to encourage people to remain residence amid the coronavirus pandemic.
While the photographs began off as tame, the third within the collection escalated issues. First, we noticed Urianger reading a book, Alisae practicing combat, and now we see … Estinien doing one-handed push-ups, principally nude. Fans erupted with pleasure on social media.
While this clear thirst-trap picture is getting quite a lot of feral reactions from Estinien followers, a bulk of the followers are shocked by a brand new revelation: Estinien is able to bodily hygiene.
Estinien is thought for being filthy, because of a storyline within the Heavensward enlargement. The dragoon takes down Nidhogg, a dragon baddy, and finally ends up getting soaked within the dragon’s blood. The blood stains his armor, and later turns Estinien right into a vessel for Nidhogg to own, which causes all kinds of issues.
Officially, his armor was stained — and it must be presumably remade with a view to eliminate the blood. But the (joking) fan response was, “Well, if Estinien just took a frickin’ shower, this probably could have been avoided.” (In all seriousness, he most likely ought to have gotten a brand new set of armor shortly after his unique set obtained corrupted.)
Later within the Shadowbringers enlargement, there’s even a joke about how one other character doesn’t need to take a bathe, and your character has the choice of replying, “What would Estinien say …?”
That stated, followers are shocked to see a washtub within the background of this promotional artwork. He takes baths? He has a clear house? He even hangs up his civilian garments, relatively than leaving them crumpled on the ground?
estinien sits quietly within the little bucket for 5 seconds. his eyes snap open. he says “Clean.” he emerges from the bucket in 1 body and begins doing push-ups on the moist ground

This can solely imply that the fourth and closing picture within the “Stay Home” collection could also be much more feral. I count on it to be a totally nude drawing of the Crystal Exarch and nothing else.
