FFXIV pays tribute to Belts, Changes shown in Endwalker Patch 6.0 Notes
This day was coming. In the world of Final Fantasy XIV, glamour and gear have come a long way. Because of the advancements in pants tailoring, armorers and clothing designers across The Source have no longer needed belts. This is not a joke, and it is now commonplace.
They will be removed from equipable gear and become obsolete items. They won’t be missed as they weren’t reflected on your character in glam. However, stats and average items levels will be adjusted to reflect the “Waist” category loss from your gear set. Although technically they will still be available, they won’t serve any purpose. All belts will now have an accurate description (see below).
The FFXIV website has published the preliminary patch notes summary Endwalker and the 6.0 update. This document explains every detail, some of them already covered in the lead-up to the new expansion. It also includes a section on what is happening to belts. In January, the decision to eliminate belts from gear was announced at FFXIV Fan Fest. Further details about how it will affect the game were provided in Live Letters. However, the patch notes go into great detail.
All of it, including the shop vendors, quest rewards, and crafting recipes, as well as all market boards and gear coffers, is gone. You can retrieve your material belts from Calamity Salvage by selecting “Retrieve Obsolete Belts.” This will allow you to remove and meld materia. However, you won’t have the ability to extract it. Speed Belts for Eureka have been removed, but the increased movement speed will not be available to you. You can obtain Blitzrings from the Calamity Salvager.
