Final Fantasy XIV Online Endwalker’s patch 6.01 adds the new Pandaemonium raid dungeon, items, and quests in order to make your FFXIV journey even better. Check out the full patch notes for the update.

Final Fantasy XIV Online’s concluding chapter, Endwalker, has finally hit our screens. Drawing the current story arc to a close in true FFXIV style, players across Eorzea have been quick to dive into the end of all days.

Well, sort of. Due to ongoing server issues, Square Enix have struggled to cater to the millions of players that are flocking back to the game.

Hopefully FFXIV’s 6.01 update will clear up some of the irritating problems, but it also introduces swathes of new content. From the new Pandaemonium raid dungeon to awesome looking items, here’s a rundown of FFXIV Endwalker’s 6.01 update’s patch notes.

FFXIV Endwalker 6.01: Pandaemonium Asphodelos

Of course, the highlight of FFXIV Endwalker patch 6.01 is the newest raid dungeon to join the game’s ever-expanding roster, Pandaemonium: Asphodelos.

A ghastly realm engulfed in a black mist and shadowed by spindly, warped trees, players will have 90 minutes to complete the raid and earn Pandaemonium Points. These are then traded to Mylenie in Labyrinthos or Djole in Radz-at-Han in order to earn some all-new items.
