Final Fantasy XIV Online’s Endwalker expansion is finally upon us, so here’s a rundown of FFXIV’s 6.0 patch notes, including information on the new cities and PvP changes.
After a two year wait, Final Fantasy XIV’s first chapter will slam shut with the battle for Eorzea. Entitled ‘FFXIV Endwalker,’ the Scions of the Seventh dawn will be pitted against their most fearsome foes yet in a battle that will conclude the current main storyline.
Accompanying all of the new content are some new cities to explore, as well as the new Sage and Reaper job specializations. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a whole new season around the corner for PvP players to sink their teeth (or scythes) into.
Excited to dive into FFXIV’s Endwalker expansion? Here’s a rundown of all the most important changes.
As if Eorzea couldn’t get any bigger, Square Enix have added an extra six zones to FFXIV’s universe. From the spectacular canal-style city of Old Sharlayan to the colorful streets of Radz-at-Han, players are in for a treat.
Four different field zones have also been discovered, and they look absolutely beautiful. Labyrinthos is a stony city illuminated by a chandelier-like structure nestled high in the sky, while the Mare Lamentorum observatory looks like something out of a great science fiction film.
Sure, these stunning vistas look amazing, but what’s even better is that Endwalker will allow you to traverse these hallowed plains as both the Sage and Reaper.
With the first falling into the Healer category, and Reaper stylized as a melee DPS, you’ll be able to try them both as either a Disciple of War or Magic without having to play as any specific class.
Coming into Endwalker, Season 20 will come to a close and the game will enter a pre-season state. Players who have reached Bronze will be able to claim their rewards from the Feast quartermaster at the Wolves’ Den Pier.
Those at the top of the leaderboard will have their reward sent out by Moogle Delivery Service, but these will be sent out on Patch 6.1.
