Greetings MMO and Final Fantasy fans! Today is a big day as the latest patch went live this morning as of 1am PST. There is tons of new content to check out, but I’m going to give you the basics of some of the most important things to look out for in the latest update for Final Fantasy XIV: Dreams of Ice.


New classes became available, Rogue the dual dagger wielding DPS class, and Ninja the upgraded job that requires Rogue to be level 30, and your Pugilist to be level 15.


Of course with this latest patch you have the addition of new Main Scenario quests, Chronicles of a New Era Quests, new set of Hilidbrand quests, and the new Delivery Moogle questline. New dungeons include Snowcloak, Sastasha (Hard), The Sunken Temple of Qarn (Hard) for the four player instances. Then The Final Coil of Bahamut has been added for the eight player raid. The Akh Afah Amphitheatre (Hard) and (Extreme) are now available to face off against Shiva! Also The Dragon’s Neck for your trials missions.


A big bit of news is that Atma crystals now have increased drop rates! So upgrading your relic weapons should be much easier to handle now.

There is no longer a weekly restriction on item rolls in Sycus Tower. Item drops in Mirror of the Whorl has also increased.

Otherwise there is more about the “under the hood” updates that are filled in the latest patch notes. Which you can feel free to check out the whole list in detail here. I look forward to seeing you in Eorzea, and if you happen to be in Brynhildr server keep an eye out for Eydran Seigward for adventuring goodness!
