The Finale of Dragonsong War Scenario

Previously, the heroes held a peace conference at Falcon’s Nest that was intended to celebrate the reconciliation between man and dragon – the long-awaited end for the Dragonsong War. But the lingering shade of Nidhogg, clad in the flesh of the Azure Dragoon, marked the occasion by spilling the blood of his own kind─a timely atrocity to remind the children of Ishgard that the conflict was far from over. In those twilight hours Nidhogg cried out for vengeance, and his brethren raised their voices for the final chorus of the Dragonsong War.

Warrior of Lights Discovers “Sohr Khai” Dungeon – Home of the Great Wyrns

As Warrior of Lights are looking for more answers and ways to defeat the great wyrn Nidhogg, they head to Sohr Khai – a majestic and forgotten place, which existence is unrecorded in the annals of man. The palace rests atop the clouds in the farthest reaches of the Churning Mists and was once home to Ratatoskr, brood-sister to Hraesvelgr and Nidhogg, until the treachery of mortals ensured that its stones would never again ring under the she-wyrm’s talons. The dragons named it “Sohr Khai,” a grieving apology for their failure to avert her fate, and they watched with infinite sadness as Ratatoskr’s empty roost was overrun by bird and beast. During the dungeon, the heroes get to fights againts Moogles, Griffins, Dark Pegasus, Hraesvelgr and more!

The Final Battle of the Dragonsong War, featuring “Dragonsong” by Nobuo Uematsu

Adjustments to Machinist’s “Wildfire” Animation

The developers have taken the players’ feedback to development and they have been working on a flashier, more noticeable Wildfire animation for Machinists. Wildfire was long desired to have a more epic animation because it’s the most important skill of Machinists’ burst. Look forward to see it!

There will be a new mode called The Palace of the Death. As you go deeper into the dungeon, the environment will change. There are some special items that can only be used in this content and they will transform players into monsters, for example. It’s possible to solo The Palace of the Dead but it’s highly recommended to team up as it’s balanced based on four players. As the player progresses multiple floors, there will face different kinds of enemies and special boss monsters. If you don’t reach the checkpoint before being defeated, you will return to the last one. The deep dungeon rewards the player with special and glowing weapons that can be used in other content as well.

Mounts  & Minions

There’s a new mount made for two that will allow the player to take flight over the snowy peaks of Coerthas, or take a romantic trip through night skies! In addition to that, there’s a mount from new Beast Tribes quests and The Final Steps of Faith (Extreme). Get ready for the bird farms!

Final Fantasy XIV Sound Designer has also changed the Gobwalker mount music in Patch 3.3 This mount only drops from Burden of the Father (Savage / A4S).

A lively assortment of new minions have made their way to Eorzea. From primals to prominent characters, these mini-caricatures are the perfect companions for your journey! Gotta catch ’em all!

New Features

There will be new features as well: The Raid Finder” will allow you to set various requirements to join. Whether you want to go to a raid as practice, or clear, you will be able to enter more specific details, such as which phase you want to practice/clear for that specific raid. The other new feature is called “Recommended Gear” feature which helps the player selecting optimal gear from the inventory for any class or job. Starting Patch 3.3, you will be able to save up to 4 HUD layouts!


Anima Weapon Series Continues

There will also be a continuation to the anima weapon quest series in Patch 3.3. This time, players will be able to add a secondary attribute of their choosing, similar to the Zodiac weapon quest where players added attributes via materia. Unlike with Zodiac weapons, this time around there will be no failures when adding secondary attributes. Instead, depending on your luck, you will receive additional bonuses. Just like before, there will be various avenues to increase your stats, so you can to choose the method that best suits your play style.

Treasure Hunt Dungeon – Aquapolis!

Aquapolis is a new treasure hunt dungeon which entrance will appear randomly after completing dragonskin maps. The structure and layout isn’t randomised, but you may need some luck to make it to the final room since there’s 50% change that one of two doors won’t be the right one. Clearing out enemies will reward you with materia and more!

The Field of Glory (Shatter) – A New Massive PvP Mode

The Field of Glory (Shatter) is a new massive PvP mode where Grand Companies meet again in the veins of Seal Rcok. This time around the battlefield is set in Coerthas. There are three different locations on the map that you can take over by entering into the circle area.  One of the strategic points is in planning carefully whether alliances will stay defending their captured areas or progress even further to lay claim to your opponent’s strongholds.

The main part of this content is to destroy objectives which are scattered throughout the battlefield. – allowing your team to earn points. Once these objectives are destroyed they will not reappear – thus giving teams who destroyed them a great advantage. In Patch  3.3, Adrenaline Rush gauge will be changed back to how it was for Frontline before The First Season of The Feast started.

There will be adjustments to the Feast as well: Ninja and Dark Knights will be buffed.


Housing Additions and Flowerpots

The developers have promised to add tons of new plots when the patch launches on June 7, 2016. The prices go up to tens of millions gil depending the location and the size of the house. Isn’t fighting monsters getting a bit tired? Now you can continue your gardening project as you get flowerpots that can be used to grow flowers. There will be new flowers that can only be grown this way as well. You’ll be able to change their colors as well.

The Warring Triad 

Previously, we faced the Warring Triad Sephirot who was first of the Warring Triad to awaken, but fell to the combined might of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. However, these gods of eld are not the only threat with which you and yours must contend, for the Garlean Empire and her loyal servant, Regula van Hydrus, still seek to harness primal powers. Should they be allowed to succeed, the fate of this very star may be forever changed.

Hullbreaker Isle (Hard)

Maelstrom has taken over the Hullbreaker Isle and converted it into a training ground for new recruits after the golden coffer of the legendary Mistbeard was not found on Hullbreaker Isle. And so like the mists which had withdrawn to reveal the isle did those ambitious souls depart to seek fame and fortune elsewhere.

The storm marshal would have you be the first to brave this gauntlet, that you might pit yourself against the isle’s fearsome fauna and the Maelstrom’s elite, and in so doing rouse their spirits. Will you give the storm officers a beating they will not soon forget, or will they stand triumphant at the last and shout that they have bested the Warrior of Light?

The Weeping City of Mhach

Deep in the Yafaem Saltmoor lie the ruins of the fabled city of Mhach – a civilization of the Fifth Astral Era whose prosperity was built upon unparalleled magicks of destruction. It is to this ancient edifice, and its vaults of occult secrets, that you and the Redbills plan your next foray.

Beast Tribe Quests

The new beast tribe quests will provide crafters a new way to level up their jobs to 60 and get rewards such as an extremely cute flying mount! Help moogles and dragons for a better future and get drunk from chocolate!

In ages past, Zenith stood proudly in the Churning Mists as a testament to the bond between man and dragon. Alas, this once great sanctuary now lies in ruin. Though its remains are lost to the wilds, the moogles who call this land home would fulfill an age-old pact with Hraesvelgr to see the great wyrm’s home restored to its former glory.

New Hairstyles and Emotes

No outfit is complete without the right hairstyle, and a new fashion craze is sweeping Eorzea! Enjoy a new selection of dashing hairstyles that give both men and women a bold yet beautiful look. With a wink and a smile, or perhaps even a merry moogle dance, these new emotes will add a touch of whimsy to your character.

Hildibrand Questline Continues!
