Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker’s latest update is here, so here’s a rundown of the FFXIV 6.05 patch notes, which include everything from the new Pandaemonium Asphodelos Savage raid to the Excitatron 6000.
Final Fantasy XIV Online continues to expand in the wake of the latest expansion, Endwalker, with yet more Pandaemonium raid content and treasure hunts set to drop with FFXIV Patch 6.05.
Patch 6.01 added the Pandaemonium Asphodelos raid into the game, but 6.05 upgrades it further by offering players a chance to take on the dungeon in savage mode (a higher difficulty level than the base dungeon.) Additionally, players can visit the aptly named Excitatron 6000 in an attempt to obtain some new and improved gear.
Excited yet? Here’s a full rundown of the FFXIV 6.05 patch notes, and everything you’ll need to do to try out these new features.
As we mentioned earlier, Pandaemonium Asphodelos has been in the game since 9.1, however, Square Enix have gifted players with the Savage path for the raid, allowing them to take on the same dungeon but at a much higher difficulty.
Players will need to complete the “Who Wards the Warders” quest and can access the raid by speaking to Nemjiji in Labyrinthos.
Additionally, the all-new Excitatron 6000 (complete with a very large rabbit) will be added to the game, offering a wealth of highly-prized gear for players to try their hand at claiming.
The carnival-inspired map can be accessed after finding and opening treasure coffers obtained from kumbhiraskin treasure maps.
Below are is the full breakdown of the FFXIV 6.05 patch notes, obtained via Square Enix.
- The Excitatron 6000 has been added
