* The heartbreaking saga of Edda Blackbosom finally reaches a peaceful, happy conclusion at the end of the Palace of the Dead. After a final confrontation with Edda, she explodes into dark energy like most bosses...Before reforming in a white light, just long enough for her uncorrupted self to say a few words to you before she fades away forever, leaving behind her engagement ring.]] You later find Paiyo, who has slipped into depressive alcoholism after the events of Corpse Groom, but when you show him the ring, he snaps out of it, joining you on a brief quest to find her beloved's ring. Once you do, you head to a cliff overlooking Limsa - Where their love began - and give them both a burial that leaves both of their spirits, finally, at peace. The scene ends with a wonderful view of the city...And Edda's disembodied voice from beyond thanking you for what you've done.]]

* Hildibrand proves again to be touching when not funny. When Gigi confides that [[spoiler:he feels like he can't be Hildibrand's son as a mammet]], Hildibrand reassures Gigi that ''what'' he is means nothing to ''who'' he is. He strikes his gentlemanly pose and declares that if some calls Gigi a mammet, he must correct them with, "Nay, I am a ''Manderville'' mammet!" [[spoiler:Hildi's going to make for an excellent father]].

* The Final Coil of Bahamet, clearing it's 3rd turn (AKA, the "12th Turn") gives us [[spoiler: the final moments of Louisoux with his grandchildren, that also crosses over with being a Tearjerker. Here is a man who has given up ''everything'', including his very existence, to protect Eorzea and Hydaelyn. And for that he spent 5 years as an ascended primal being trapped in thrall to another primal. How does he spend his extremely limited remaining time alive before returning to the Lifestream, after being freed from being tempered and existing as the primal Phoenix? By telling Alphinaud and Alisaie one final story, the full truth of what happened in his fight against Bahamet and how he saved Eorzea, and telling both of them about how he's [[SoProudofYou proud of both of them and what they've accomplished]]. The man is about to [[DisappearsIntoLight Disappear Into Light]], and his final moments in the realm of the living is to hug his grandchildren one last time, encouraging them to keep performing great deeds and forge a legacy of their own, with a smile on his face.]]

* Compared to the heartbreak of 2.5, the ending of Ishgard's story is the most hopeful that XIV's narrative has ever been. [[spoiler: With Nidhogg dead, the dragonsong war finally comes to a close. With the help of the spirits of Haurchefant and Ysale, You and Alphinaud pull the dragon eyes out of Estinien, freeing him from the Wyrm's grasp. The follow up sees Alphinaud all but crying in joy as Estinien heals and he and Aymeric share words. The closing narration notes that Ishgard has become almost a paradise, with the corrupt theocracy replaced by a republic made up of both nobles and commoners great strides are made almost immediately with improving the life of the less fortunate. Aymeric is heralded as a new Azure Dragoon, one that rides upon the back of dragons instead of slaying them, entirely destroying the gap between man and dragon. Even Hraesvelgr, despite losing a wing, shows hope for the future of mankind despite his lingering heartbreak and anger at Ratatoskr's death. What follows after the credits roll can best be described a playable WhereAreTheyNowEnding as you retrace every step you took over the entirety of the 3.0 storyline, talking with all of the characters you met along the course of the main story and seeing how the war's end, new relations with dragons, and general sensation of ''hope'' among everyone involved you've left in your wake. No strings attached, it's a happy ending for the saga of Ishgard.]]

* The end of the 3.2 main story shows the culmination of your battle. [[spoiler: As Vidofnir touches down, she and Aymeric share a speech about the future of existing alongside one another as man and dragon. While there are many in the crowd who are still wary, and the traitors who would rather the fight continue are present and glaring, that all changes when Aymeric reveals the fruits of their labor; a beautiful relief of Shiva and Hraesvelgr wrapped in an loving embrace. Vidofnir is speechless, and even the leader of the remnants, who would rather die than let go of her hatred for dragons visibly softens to tears upon seeing the sight, as if realizing what it would mean to end the war for good. While Nidhogg's arrival ultimately prevents the full dispersion of Ishgard's hatred, talking to NPCs around the town reveals that many Ishgardians were so touched by the ceremony they've redirected their hate towards dragons as a whole to just Nidhogg, especially after seeing Nidhogg sees benevolent dragons as enemies as well, and are more than happy to live in peace once he's out of the picture.]]

* ''The Maiden's Rhapsody'' crossover event with ''Videogame/FinalFantasyXI'' is peppered with plenty of references to both ''XI'''s story and how many players experienced the game, and then tops it all off with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2s0rvFaQDQE a montage featuring even more characters than XI's own final mission line Rhapsodies of Vana'diel]], which can be quite the moment for its players.

* One of the side quests in the Dravanian Forelands has you helping out a young dragonling with various tasks, such as gathering food for himself and his mother. During each quest, the dragonling takes an interest in you since it's the first time he has seen man with his own eyes and is intrigued by the good deeds you have done for him and his kind so far. Later on, you meet the dragonling's older brother, who immediately casts doubt on you because of man's past sins and forbids his younger brother from interacting with you. The young dragonling is now heartbroken and confused because he knows his brother isn't lying, yet you are not what his brother says. You reassure him that you are who you are and he thanks you for putting his fears at ease. In the final quest in the chain, the dragonling's brother is sick and you're tasked with recreating an ancient medicine that would heal dragons. Once you give the medicine to the dragon who doubted you previously, he still acts suspicious of you, but he says he won't forget your kindness while the dragonling promises to tell his future generation about your good deeds.\\

In a similar vein, one of the Vath quests has you looking for a dragon mother's son who had been out all day playing. When you do find the young dragon pup, he runs away from you several times because he likes playing games where people chase him. When you finally corner him, the dragon pup thanks you for playing with him and how you were faster than the Vath who chased him. After you report back to the mother dragon, she says how her son came back home and promptly fell asleep with a smile and she thanks you for playing with him since her son rarely ever gets to play with people that are not dragons.
