Letter from the Producer LIVE 71
Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida will as soon as once more step in entrance of the digital camera to debate the way forward for Closing Fantasy XIV. We are able to anticipate miscellaneous updates, particulars for the upcoming 6.2 patch, and the same old banter. Do be aware that the stream will probably be in Japanese solely, however the slides can even be accessible in English. However as all the time, we will have a abstract of the dwell letter up as quickly as attainable.
The dwell letter will probably be streamed on YouTube, Twitch and Niconico on Friday, June 1 2022 at 11:00 (GMT) / 12:00 (BST) / 21:00 (AEST) and as ordinary, these instances are topic to alter. We anticipate the dwell steam to be round 2-3 hours. And it’ll principally be focussed round future content material.
What Can We Count on From 6.2 Then?
Because of a slide offered by Sq. Enix, all the best way again in February, we have already got an thought of what is to come back in 6.2 moreover the same old. However let’s get that out of the best way. If estimates are right, we will anticipate 6.2 to be launched someday in late August or early to mid-September.
This subsequent patch will embrace the subsequent chapter of the Pandemonium raid. It will embrace 4 new bosses to face in each regular and savage problem, in addition to a continuation of the Pandemonium quest line. With that comes after all a brand new weekly Tomestone foreign money and new units of drugs to be obtained by both raiding or farming. We are able to additionally anticipate the beginning of the trial collection for six.X, which we do not know a lot about at this level. With that comes a brand new regular trial and the acute problem with a brand new weapon rewards. Which can most likely make your progress by way of the brand new Pandemonium tier a bit of simpler.
After all, we will additionally anticipate a brand new dungeon and the continuation of the principle quest situation. Which can both keep the course we set out on in 6.1, or perhaps department off into one thing fully completely different. With this patch, we’ll additionally see step one of the brand new relict weapons. Whereas this step will most likely not embrace one thing as grandeur as Bozja or Eureka simply but, it ought to give us a good suggestion for the path we’re heading. By the top of an enlargement, the relict weapon would be the strongest weapon obtainable. So it is price investing in it early for those who plan to gear up your secondary jobs.
We are able to additionally anticipate some new additions to the favored crystal battle PVP mode, in addition to a brand new season. You get as soon as once more the prospect to climb the ranks, and acquire rewards. There’ll most likely be extra maps on the best way. In addition to changes to the large-scale PVP modes.
There can even be a correct implementation of the Adventurer Plate system, launched within the newest patch. Extra customization choices for each the plate, and the Portrait characteristic. Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida has additionally teased, that the Portraits is likely to be featured at first of dungeons. Much like the way it at the moment works in PVP. The characteristic turned out to be somewhat fashionable with gamers, so you possibly can assume there’s rather more to come back.
With 6.2, we’ll additionally see the implementation of the long-awaited Island Sanctuary. A characteristic that has been teased for over a yr now, however we all know subsequent to nothing about. There have been whispers that this is likely to be that non-public housing system gamers have been wanting years. Presently, it’s somewhat onerous to acquire a home, even more durable if you’re by yourself. And whereas the Island Sanctuary might be not going to repair all these woes, it may be a step in the appropriate path.
However what’s the Island Sanctuary? From interviews and previous dwell letters, we all know that it’s a ‘completely different variety’ of content material, in response to Yoshida. And whereas he warned that gamers mustn’t anticipate one thing on the extent of a Stardew Valley or Animal Crossing. It looks like it shapes as much as be one thing in that path. Gamers can construct their very own homes on a non-public island, develop issues of their gardens and work together with collected minions and mounts. It is most likely going to be a kind of time sinks that do not actually work together with the sport, outdoors from the market board after all. And can simply add to the ‘hangoutitude’ of the MMO.
Criterion Dungeons are one other characteristic that’s at the moment shrouded in thriller. Not changing the Deep Dungeons, as we’ll get one other a kind of with 6.3. Criterion Dungeons are going to be solo or group dungeons, equally to the aforementioned Deep Dungeons. And whereas these are lengthy gauntlets rigged with traps and randomly generated. The identify implies that Criterion Dungeons is likely to be a extra curated expertise for smaller events or solo gamers. I would not be stunned if they’re bite-sized dungeon trials, just like the Blue Mage Carnival missions. Chunk-sized battle puzzles that require good execution.
Subsequent up is the continued endeavor to implement the belief system in all major situation associated content material. For six.2 we will anticipate the remainder of the two.x dungeons like Snowcloak and Keeper of the Lake, in addition to some 3.0 dungeons. With the implementations comes additionally a visible overhaul, implementing new mild results and a few changes to the surroundings. And it is most likely not too far-fetched to anticipate some bosses to see some modifications. Nevertheless it’s left to be seen if these modifications can even relate to the Crystal Tower alliance raids.
We’re additionally going to see a possible continuation of the newly launched Tataru questline, and much more misadventures with detective Hildibrand. And people are simply the issues we learn about. After the success of the Ishgard restoration throughout the 5.x circle, I anticipate that we will see one thing comparable for six.x very quickly.
We now have patch date for six.18! Comparatively quickly on Tuesday, July 5. Not solely does this patch mark the top of the primary season of the Crystalline Battle, but in addition the beginning of the second season and a few server expansions. Oh, and we’re lastly getting Knowledge Heart journey!
Knowledge Heart journey will lastly be carried out with 6.18. The characteristic was initially deliberate to debut final yr with 5.5X however needed to be delayed because of a slew of server points within the wake of XIV’s sudden burst in recognition. Now that the characteristic is lastly right here, gamers can hop between knowledge facilities in the identical area. So for those who’re on Aether, now you can go to Primal and Crystal. However you can be considerably restricted to what you are able to do whereas touring.
Whereas it is possible for you to to work together with market boards, commerce and be a part of events. You will not have the ability to work together with any chief boards, like those for Deep Dungeons or PvP. Different limitations will probably be equally to cross world journey. Signifies that you will not have the ability to entry your retainers or purchase homes and so forth. As well as, you additionally will not have the ability to work together with any unspoiled or legendary nodes whereas gathering. However it is possible for you to to hitch crossword linkshells, that may solely be accessible if you’re on the information middle they’re native to. And maybe sooner or later, we would have the ability to go to knowledge facilities in different areas.
This patch can even see the primary stage of the promised server expansions. Beginning with the redistribution of the Japanese knowledge middle’s. A fourth one, named Meteor, will probably be added and alter the present 10:11:11 configuration to a 8:8:8:8 arrange. For extra particulars on what servers are affected, please take a look at the official put up here.
We’ll additionally see the implementation of two extra worlds to each the European Knowledge Facilities: Mild and Chaos. There are additionally plans so as to add an entire new Knowledge Heart someday subsequent yr. The acquisition of homes on these new servers will nonetheless be disabled till additional discover. Till Sq. Enix can affirm that the implementation went off with no hitch.
For those who create a brand new character on a kind of 4 new worlds, you’ll get 15 days of free playtime and a present of 1,000,000 gil. That is solely attainable as soon as per service account, however most likely price wanting into. Gamers who switch to those new worlds will probably be in a position to take action freed from cost and might get gil of their personal estates/residences as compensation. Yow will discover extra particulars on the method here.
North American gamers must wait a bit of longer, however Sq. Enix introduced again in January that there’s an enlargement for NA operations within the works. Again then, the plan was so as to add a brand new knowledge middle with 8 worlds to the area. However we have not heard an replace since. The plan again then was so as to add that new knowledge focus on August, so we will anticipate it to be added across the time the 6.2 patch lands.
As talked about earlier than, patch 6.18 is predicted to go dwell on July 5, 2022. In wake of the implementation of the brand new knowledge middle, new worlds and the cross-data middle journey system. Servers are anticipated to be down for upkeep for twenty-four hours.
