So, what’s on the menu for Patch 6.4?

You’ll be embarking on new main scenario quests, continuing the epic journey of the Warrior of Light. A new raid dungeon, Pand√¶monium: Anabaseios, marks the final chapter of the Pand√¶monium raid series. Alongside this, we’ve got a new dungeon, Aetherfont, and a thrilling new trial, The Voidcast Dais, where you’ll be pitted against Golbez on both Normal and Extreme difficulties.

But we’re not stopping there. You can look forward to a new Unreal Trial, side story quests, Duty Support System updates, an Ocean Fishing update, Island Sanctuary updates, PvP updates, and a whole bunch of other miscellaneous updates. They’re even introducing a new Allagan tomestone currency and the ability to glamour scholar faeries. Talk about spoiling us!

And as if that’s not enough, Yoshida also gave us a cheeky sneak peek into Patch 6.45. Expect a Blue Mage update, new Variant and Criterion dungeons, more Hildibrand adventures, and weapon and tool enhancement quests.

So, whether you’re one of the 27 million registered players or a newcomer just getting your feet wet, there’s never been a better time to dive into the world of FINAL FANTASY XIV Online. The expanded Free Trial now includes content from A Realm Reborn and the Heavensward expansion, plus an extra playable race and three extra playable jobs.
