FFXIV Maintenance Scheduled For Patch 6.18 Hotfixes (July 12, 2018)
Final Fantasy XIV saw its most recent update, patch 6.18, go live on July 5, after a 24-hour maintenance period. For the duration of the data centre travel implementation and new servers, the game was down for a long time. A week later, FFXIV maintenance was back. It’s not as difficult this time. And FFXIV is offline to receive Patch 6.18 hotfixes. They will start on July 12t 11:00 p.m. (PT) and end on JuJuly 133:00, a.m. (PT ).
Although the FFXIV team didn’t specify what hotfixes were for, it appears to be related to Patch 6.18’s data centre travel features. The game has struggled to keep up with player demand for data centre travel. FFXIV received up to 15,000 requests every minute, and servers have been having issues since day one. Although temporarily suspended, the feature seems to have stabstabilizedayers should know that data centre travel will be halted 30 minutes before the maintenance period (July 12, 10:30 p.m. PST).
The new data centre travel system allows players to visit other data centres. For example, players on servers in the Primal data centres can visit any server on Aether and Crystal. You can find a complete guide to restrictions and how to use the data centre travel system.
Surprisingly FFXIV Patch 6.18 introduced other noteworthy features. Radiant Roborant can now be earned with Aglaia coins. This is a minor but significant change. This allows getting the most potent weapons in without needing to grind the Savage raids. Several more Job changes were made for PVP to improve balance in competitive multiplayer. Frontline PVP mode was also modified with adjustments to damage modifiers, Limit Break gauges, and other tweaks. European players also received new servers at their data centres. This increased player capacity and helped reduce server congestion. It all is summarized in our HTMLXIV Patch 6_.
