FFXIV Patch 6. Details: Island Sanctuary and New Criterion Dungeons. Heavensward Trusts.
The Final Fantasy XIVLive letter provided a lot of information about the game’s future. These included details on the features that we can expect during the post-end walker 6. x patch cycle. We’ve already covered all we know about FFXIV patch 6.1. This will be available in April. We’ll now tell you what we know about Patch 6.2.
The 6.2 updates will bring the Island Sanctuary to life. Director and producer Naoki Yashida did not reveal the details of the content, but he said that it was “large-scale” content distinct from the rest of the game. The Endwalker revealed it for the first time at FanFest in 2013. In an interview with last year, Yoshida san stated that Harvest Moon fans were also on the Final Fantasy XIV Team, so everyone seems to have fun.” This should give an idea of the vibe Island Sanctuary is trying to create.
The expansion to the Trust system will continue. This will allow you to take AI-controlled party members into main story dungeons that are older content. Following the 6.1 departure, Patch 6.2 will expand Trusts to MSQ dungeons across A Realm reborn‘s 2. x quests and the first half of Heavensward_’s MSQ. Check out our complete story on the Patch 6. x series revamps old content.
During the Live Letter, a new type of content was also revealed: Criterion Dungeons. These dungeons are new and have difficulty levels that can be used by one (1) to four (4) players. The difficulty level will vary depending on the party size. Patch 6.2 introduces the first Criterion Dungeon, and there will be more in future patches. Live Letters will provide more information about these dungeons.
Patch 6.2 will include the four next instances of the eight-player Pandaemonium Raid Series. We believe the raid will be called Pandaemonium Abyssos based on its story. (If you still haven’t completed the first leg of this raid series, make sure to visit our Pandaemonium Asphodelos Raid Guide.
Patch 6.2 will continue to tell the story of the new FFXIV era, as well as new trials and additional content in Faux Hollows. A bullet point was made about new weapon enhancements. However, it was not mentioned. You can see the Live Letter slide that details Patch 6.2.
If you haven’t read the Live Letter yet, check out our stories about how the Trust system will affect previous content and the Duty reworks. Also, see the previews for FFXIV 7.0. Yoshida-san explained that the development cycle for FFXIV was slightly longer, and major patches will be released at four-month intervals. We can also speculate that Patch 6.2 might launch in August.
