    Patch 3.5 Trailer and Site: Destiny's Limit

    So at the end of the trailer, things went a little... fast. I took it upon myself to try and capture as much as I could here that wasn't a repeat of a prior picture. Take what you can from this.
  10. While the threat of the Warriors of Darkness is no longer, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn are not without their losses. Torn apart at the seams, their ranks are only held together by the arrival of new and powerful allies. As they recuperate and restructure, once more do the men and women sworn to protect Eorzea look to the horizons only to see the ominous clouds in the distance roiling towards them. From the border between the Black Shroud and Gyr Abania, a pillar of dark smoke coils into the sky and a dread enemy stirs. To the east, unrest has gripped the sacred lands of Sohm Al, which is being overrun by beastly intruders. And high above the cloud tops, Diabolos rises from the ashes once more intent on claiming Dun Scaith as his very own. Great trials and even greater rewards await those brave enough to return to the forefronts of battle, and players will have a chance to get their hands on exclusive items, such as PvP gear inspired by the hit Japanese TV show, Garo!

    New Year's Greetings! - Yoshi-P

    FFXIV Producer and Director Yoshi-P here to wish you all a Happy New Year! I hope each and every one of you is enjoying the holiday season. I imagine that you’ll all be ringing in the new year in your own way: adventuring in Eorzea, spending time with friends and loved ones in the real world, wrapping up warm on your couches watching TV. All of us here on the FFXIV team are enjoying some long-awaited time off, after running ourselves ragged putting on the Fan Festival in Tokyo last month. As for myself, I’ve finally had the time to get back to playing FFXIV. It’s been a blast going around getting new mounts, trying to collect even more anima weapons, and chatting away with friends. I’ve really just been relaxing in Eorzea. Having the time to leisurely play through a game truly is one of life’s little pleasures. Looking back on 2016, it has really been a fruitful year for the game. We wrapped up the Dragonsong War story that began in Heavensward, as well as creating new experiences like the deep dungeon. It’s been three years since ARR’s release and I feel like this past year has been one where we were able to take on new challenges, while continuing to provide a consistent, stable experience. At the second Fan Festival in Las Vegas we announced the upcoming Stormblood expansion, and recently revealed further details at the Tokyo event. That we will be delivering another major expansion is a sign of how stable and prosperous Eorzea has become. This in turn provides us the time and resources we need to consistently bring you new adventures. I want to take this chance to express my thanks once again to all you Warriors of Light out there that have made this possible. At this point, we’ve mostly finished fine-tuning the new additions that will be included in the Far Edge of Fate Part 1 and Part 2 patches. All that’s left now is to make sure there are no bugs before we push the new patch live. What trials and tribulations lie in wait for the Warrior of Light and the Scions of the Seventh Dawn? Keep your eyes peeled for further developments before the patch drops! (Make sure you also don’t miss the Far Edge of Fate trailer we’ll be releasing in the near future.) But what’s this!? Just as I was enjoying my time back in Eorzea, a strange hooded man has handed me a piece of parchment that seems to have a poem written on it… What new adventures and encounters await the Warrior of Light in 2017? Experience them for yourself as FINAL FANTASY XIV moves full steam ahead! FINAL FANTASY XIV PRODUCER/DIRECTOR Naoki Yoshida

    Resolution for 2017

    Did you make one? Do you want to share? It doesn't need to be amazing and you don't need to share. As for me, these are mine. Finish at least one game a month. (My Backlog severely needs this motivation.) Finish at least one anime a month. (My Backlog is long enough that I can feasibly do this or more.) Write at least one short story related to my character in XIV a week. (Past and Present Stories.) Cap out on my Weekly Tome Limit every week in Final Fantasy XIV (with at least a week or two leeway once Crimson Liberator comes out since I might not finish the Main Story immediately depending on my interest in the new jobs.) By the end of 2017, hopefully have a semi-playable pen and paper system-ish thingsys.

    Egi Glamors and Party Finder Updates

    Egi Glamours Starting with patch 3.5, summoners will gain the ability to change their egi's appearance. The update includes glamours for Emerald Carbuncle, Topaz Carbuncle, and Ruby Carbuncle, with more scheduled for future patches. Egi Glamours Players will be able to change the appearance of their egi by using a text command, which can be learned upon completing the quest "An Egi by Any Other Name." After inputting the text command, your egi will assume the appearance of your chosen Carbuncle the next time it is summoned. In order to change your egi's appearance once more, you will need to withdraw your egi, enter another text command, and then re-summon it. The appearances you assign each of your three egi will be saved when you log out. * Egi glamour will not be visible during PvP content. * Appearance data is saved to players' chosen client and will not be reflected if they change platforms. Available Egi Glamours Emerald Carbuncle Topaz Carbuncle Ruby Carbuncle Party Finder Update With the release of patch 3.5, the Party Finder will be expanded to allow players to search for parties across all Worlds on the same data center.
