Greetings, Bartleby!

You are more than welcome to bring your own light party! For those who may come individually, we'll also be forming random light parties from participants hanging out at the Wolves' Den Pier looking to join us.

Essentially, we can do both! You're even welcome to bring two parties of four if you'd like to battle it out with your friends while we spectate.

We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Egis
    It will be possible to alter the outward appearance of Garuda, Titan, and Ifrit-Egi. This is the “Egi Glamour” system we’ve mentioned in the past.
    Completing the relevant quest will unlock this feature, which allows you to change your egi's appearance by using text commands. Of course, other players will also see your egi's altered appearance.
    In Patch 3.5, you will only be able to change your egi’s appearance to one of three types of Carbuncle, but other egi appearances will be added in later patches.
    The appearance you set will be saved even if you log out. However, this will only be saved locally, so if you play on different platforms you will need to set the appearance on each platform.
    If you want to change the appearance of an egi that has already been summoned, you will need to re-summon after activating the text command to update the appearance.

  • Chocobo Companion Updates
    It will become possible to register for the Duty Finder while your chocobo companion is present. To accommodate this, companions will be handled in the party list as pets rather than party members, but there will be no changes to companion behaviour.
    Of course, summoners and scholars will still be able to use their egis and pets at the same time.
    You will also be able to call out your chocobo when in a full party, meaning you can have a party of 8 players and 8 chocobos. But, as mentioned, chocobos are treated as pets so you will need to target other players' chocobos to see their HP.

The Feast
  • New maps
    New maps will be added after the end of Season 3, with the same rules as the current Feast mode.
    After the new map has been added we will have another pre-season period, where we’d like to give everyone the opportunity to give their feedback about the new map.

    Chat will be completely disabled, but new auto-translate options will be added especially for the Feast. These will be implemented as PvP actions that can be added to the hotbar, so make sure to try it out.
    Moving forward, we’ll also be adding the option to replace pronouns, so please give us your feedback.

PvP Updates
  • Frontline
    Players will have the option of being matched without Grand Company requirements, by simply selecting an option.
    We were concerned that this feature might be abused, so originally did not allow matching without GC requirements, but since we plan to add new PvP content in 4.0, we decided to try and it see how it goes. We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback.
    Of course, players will still be able to participate as a specific Grand Company
  • Dueling
    We received a lot of feedback from players asking for a level sync feature, so we’ve set an Item Level sync of 150, the same level as the Feast. If you are below IL 150, your item level will not be synced.
    In addition, we will be adding an ability to sync gear to host's item level, but of course, players will still be able to enjoy unsynced duels and lastly, all action recast timers will be reset at the start of duels.

Party Finder Updates
The party finder window will undergo some changes, with new tabs being added to the top: “All”, “Same World” and “Private”*.
-The “All” tab will display all groups on the party finder.
-The “Same World” tab will only display players recruiting groups in the same world.
*Final naming of tabs subject to change.
  • Recruit players from other worlds on the same data center
    Players will be able to view/recruit players from other Worlds on the same data center, but will also be able to limit their recruitment to players in their World. If you want to recruit players to play field content such as the Aquapolis, this will be the setting to use, so you recruit players in the same World.
    The World will be displayed alongside character name, so make sure to double check world if someone of the same name is recruiting players.
    This will only apply to content which uses the Duty or Raid Finder.

    Content that is accessed via NPC such as Deep Dungeon and exploratory missions will require some special work, so will not apply to the Party Finder in 3.5, but we would like to add moving forward.
    Also, the Party Finder will not apply to the Gold Saucer.
    That said, all party settings such as Undersized Party will be possible.

  • Party members will be able to chat with each other regardless of their World
    Players who have been recruited via the Party Finder will be able to talk together in the party chat.
    You’d even be able to ask about prices on items in someone else’s World for example. We’re working on applying the same-World blacklist, as well as friend lists, but blacklist will likely come first.

Updated Content : Exploratory missions

We put a lot of thought into a new name, but since the title for Exploratory missions is already fixed, we decided to keep the name as-is. Pre-existing exploratory missions will be heavily updated:
  • Hunting exploratory missions
  • Gathering exploratory missions
As you can see, we’ve completely separated the content for battle and gathering classes.
A cataclysmic event takes place, making the current diadem area a thing of the past. For this reason, players will be unable to enter from Patch 3.5. After that, players will have to wait a while until the opening of the new Diadem content, currently planned for release a little after Patch 3.5, in the 3.5x series.

The map for the Diadem won’t change much, but there will be differences in where you can and can’t go.

The theme of the previous version of exploratory missions was to have the players decide how they would enjoy the content themselves, but in the new version, objectives will be clearly assigned.
There will be some surprises too, such as boss battles that involve the entire map area. On top of that, some tough enemies will appear that will be hard to beat unless you form groups of four parties.
We will have more details on this in the Patch 3.5 Preview Part 2.

Rest assured that all 9 types of achievements available in exploratory missions right now will also be obtainable in the new Diadem.

New Content in 3.5 and 3.55

Zhloe Aliapoh
This is a new type of content, for Disciples of the Hand and Land.
You accept gathering/crafting requests for collectable items from certain NPCs to raise the satisfaction level of of those characters.
As the patch progresses, other clients will appear apart from Zhloe Aliapoh, and the content will focus on glamour elements moving forward.
Ultimately, the main theme of the content will be focusing on glamours, so you can make your character even more glamourous!

New Content in 3.5
  • New alliance raid dungeon
  • Dun Scaith

This is the third entry in the Mhach series.
I would say final entry, but perhaps there’s something more…? Hold on for further info in the next LIVE letter.

This will be the 24 player alliance raid dungeon. I touched on this at Fan Fest, but this raid will be elaborate straight from the first boss.
The first boss battle will take place on-board an airship, so the ground will be quite unstable. Dun Scaith will be the first 24 player raid with such precarious footing, but there will be other mechanics for each area. Please look forward to it!

Many of you have probably already seen Baelsar's Wall, the Garlean gate located in the East Shroud. This extensive wall separates the Garlean Empire and Eorzea, and was built with the intention of protecting the Empire from the threat of beast tribes and primals. The warrior of light will finally be able to storm into this area.

For the GameStop Campaign
First of all, apologies for the delayed reply, but confirming these things usually takes some time. I can confirm that the campaign has now started in its entirety, and as such, codes will also be available from gamestop.de

To recap:
Codes are available in store in Germany, Switzerland and Austria when making a purchase worth at least 19.99 EUR or 24.90 CHF in a brick and mortar GameStop store.

Codes are available from gamestop.de as well. Those will be sent out the following Tuesday. As such, they won't be instantaneous, but you will definitely get them. If you have already made a purchase and not gotten a code, no worries - if you have made the purchase on or after November 22, you will get your code next Tuesday!

Hopefully that clears it up

For the situation in the Netherlands
We are currently looking into this. Please bear with us as we're trying to get a definitive answer.

Apologies if this wasn't clear, but as mentioned in the detailed rules, all submissions must be taken from either a player's private chambers or apartment in order to qualify. Entries determined to be taken from other housing areas will be disqualified.

Hello everyone,

A while ago we announced that we’d try to bring the in-game item campaign to a number of European countries, among them Spain and Italy. With the addition of the new Gamestop campaign for Germany today, we have covered most of them – unfortunately, due to a number of circumstances and despite our best efforts, we were unable to bring the campaign to Italy and Spain in the end. We’re extremely sorry for letting the players in those regions down. We know that the campaigns were a much debated topic within the community, and will take all feedback and experiences gained into consideration for any future campaigns. Please accept our sincere apologies.

If disqualified for any reason, the Contest Winner will not receive any prize. In the event that the Contest Winner forfeits or is disqualified, Square Enix may select an alternate Entrant as a replacement for the disqualified or forfeited winner.

Hey there,

Apologies for the delay in coming back to your question. We have to undergo rigorous legal check-ups for every contest we run, and even small differences between contests can have large consequences. That’s why we could unfortunately not include Spain this time around. Please let me assure you that we try to include as many countries as possible, and we’re constantly in touch with our legal department to find ways that allow us to expand the reach of the contests – we are sorry that you will not be able to participate this time around.

Hello all!

I just wanted to pop back into once again to extend my gratitude to everyone who has posted here. For the most part, the errors that have been reported are, without question, errors. As for those issues reported which were not actually bugs, many of you have taken the time to explain to others why they were probably not actually bugs.

There are a few, however, which I would like to expand upon so as to eliminate any confusion that may have occurred as a result of the issue.

The spelling from 1.0 is correct, and the 2.0 in-game text has been fixed for 3.5.

This seems to imply that the suffix is added to the mother's forename. So for this male keeper, Okhi is his mother's given name and Nbolo is the surname (family mother name)? This seems to contradict the lore book.
The naming conventions post on the forums is correct. This happened to be a mistake in the source JP from which we translated, and thanks to the post, I was able to inform Oda-san so he could get the JP text fixed before they went to print. While no bug is ever good (especially one like this where the text 100% contradicts what has been laid out before), this particular one contains an unintentional sneak peek into our development process. It turns out that WAY back in the day, there was talk of having some races (or clans) employ name order in which the surname comes first. We ultimately decided to scrap the idea for a number of boring reasons, but I have a feeling that the JP text that we translated might have been a remnant of an old design document.

It appears there is some kind of name swap going on in the Heaven's Ward. In the short story, What Remains of a Knight, Charibert is given the name Charibert (de) Courcillain (Courcillaint?), but it appears in the lorebook that the last name either belongs to or was stolen by Janlenoux, the eleventh knight while Charibert's last name changed to Lieusignac. Who has the right of it?
The Lodestone story is mistaken and will be updated in all 4 languages (hopefully) soon.

This is probably more of a "times, they are a-changin'" thing, but I figured I'd leave it here for the sake of completeness. Back in the day, plasmoids were defined as voidsent. Likewise, I've never seen a phurble called an Elemental before, so that's interesting. Perhaps scholars just know better these days.

EDIT: And Dullahans are soulkin here, whereas the minion said they were "in fact" voidsent. Is this the doing of the Trappers' League or the meddling Sharlayans? /fistshake
Back before the Calamity, very little was known of phurbles, leading scholars to believe that they were voidsent (a convenient category into which a lot of creatures are categorized until better conclusions can be reached). New (post-Calamity) studies now place them under Elementals. As for plasmoids, there is a clear split as to what scholars believe. The author of this particular tome puts weight on the fact that plasmoids appear to contain high concentrations of elementally aspected aether—something severely lacking in the void.

The Dullahans...well, this is a mistake in the minion text, and will be fixed in-game for 3.5.

Says that (in Ishgard's version of the founding tale) King Thordan was cast into a ravine by Nidhogg. When told the tale by Alberic, he says that Thordan was thrown into a chasm by one of his own men (seduced by Nidhogg). That probably still counts, right? Cast into a ravine by Nidhogg by proxy? Before I forget about it, though, it just seemed like something one of those tiny details that, if it stayed in the scripture for a thousand years, Ishgard might have given some meaning.
You are correct. The throwing was done by one of his men (under the influence of Nidhogg). I apologize for the misleading wording.

SECTION: History

Encyclopedia Eorzea pg13
The first, and northernmost, is a remote archipelago known as Aerslaent - homeland of the Sea Wolf tribe of Roegadyn. It is from these islands that the first inhabitants of Limsa Lominsa are said to have hailed - arriving on Vylbrand after a failed raiding attempt in the southern Rhotano Sea.

Encyclopedia Eorzea pg95
In 874 of the Sixth Astral Era, the Galadion set sail from the isles deep in the northern seas - the last of a mighty armada which turned on its nation in the name of the people, only to meet defeat at the hands of those they meant to free. The Sea Wolf crew of this noble vessel, who could no longer abide the rule of tyrants, steered her crippled hull south though unknown waters in search of a new home. After a yearlong voyage cursed by many troubles, the ship drifted to the southern coast of Vylbrand, and there ran aground.

To start, even these two passages on Limsa's founding in the lore book conflict somewhat, but comparing them to the original story has me very confused.

Frithuric
You hear the legend of how this city was born? Well, years ago, there was this mighty kingdom far to the south–so far, they say that it would take a man half his life to sail to her shores–and it had an invincible armada of twenty score times ten unsinkable battleships. They conquered nigh on every city for a thousand leagues, and were the unchallenged master of the sea…until, that is, an armada just as invincible as their own invaded their waters.

Both sides fought with the courage of lions and the ferocity of sharks, but the kingdom’s fighters, so used to doing the attacking themselves, were unsure how to defend against onslaughts of a similar nature. And so their fleet was nearly destroyed and their cities were completely razed. Only a small fleet of their fastest dromonds was able to escape the carnage under cover of nightfall. It pained the crews to abandon their lands, of course, but they knew flight was the only way to ensure their people lived on.

And so they sailed and they sailed, until one day a terrible storm–some say sent by Llymlaen herself–picked up the few remaining ships and tossed them down upon the rocks of La Noscea. The ships were too badly damaged to be rebuilt, though by this time the men were weary from their journey, and no longer wished to run. And so they salvaged the remnants of their ships and built a tiny settlement on the rocks. Over time that settlement grew…and transformed into the city you see here today.
Obviously, taking into account that NPCs are wholly unreliable narrators and legends being even less reliable sources of historical fact - this story closely resembles the first passage from Pg13, but nothing like the one from Pg95. Obviously this "southern kingdom" isn't half a lifetime away, but the southern continent of Meracydia is implied to take quite some time by boat.


This has sparked several questions: If the Galadion and Limsa Lominsa are of Sea Wolf origin, why then are three out of the four named crew members Elezen? Why does the Galadion not have a Sea Wolf name? And where did the name Limsa Lominsa come from?

But I guess the most important question, is this a retcon?
First off,

It is from these islands that the first inhabitants of Limsa Lominsa are said to have hailed - arriving on Vylbrand after a failed raiding attempt in the southern Rhotano Sea.

This was poor wording on my part. This was not talking about the founders, but some of the first inhabitants. The text would have been clearer if it had read:

It is from these islands that some of the first inhabitants of Limsa Lominsa are said to have hailed - arriving on Vylbrand after failed raiding attempts in the southern Rhotano Sea.

About the in-game explanation of how Limsa was formed, we’re not retconning anything here, merely bringing out the ‘truth’ for the first time. What has existed in-game (so far) has simply been (as you pointed out) a result of extreme embellishment on the part of the speaker. He’s told the story so many times, expanding it with each telling, that little exists of what actually happened. Thousands of ships, great battles, conquering of lands, the first voyage getting confused with subsequent raids, etc. Even “north” has become south. There are actually quite a few characters who do this in the game, and it is (for the most part) by design. I’ve always thought that having every character in the game tell you something that is 100% correct is simply not realistic. Especially in a town populated by cutthroats, brigands, cheats, and liars. Things are arguably more ‘lifelike’ if answers can only be gathered by piecing together overlapping parts in several recollections of the same story. You’ll find a lot of this in Limsa. The lore book is the historians’ version of the founding story, and therefore the ‘true’ one (as true as a historian’s record can be, mind you).

As for the four Elezen crew members on a ship that was hailing from the Sea Wolves’ homeland? There’s an explanation for this, as well, but we’re hoping to reveal it in a future storyline.

For Citizen - Lower Citizens, the "Bas" title is listed, however, lore from Gubal lists the title for citizenry as "Ban."
This was incorrect in-game, and the text has been fixed for 3.5.

This true Raimdelle Codex entry (by the man himself) says that mammets were invented "five score" years ago. (100 Years)
But Serendipity tells you this year that Mnejing is the first mammet ever built and is ... one century old. (100 Years)

So it's accurate, but ... Frandelont Raimdelle lived, like, centuries ago, didn't he? He can't still be alive, can he...?
Ulp! This was supposed to be a quote from the updated (newest) edition of the Codex, and not the original. So Raimdelle did not actually say this, some nameless editor did (at least that was the intention). Sorry about that and nice catch!

It's not impossible. There's one up on the MB on Leviathan right now. Probably just a bug and will be fixed eventually. There used to be maps that you could get HQ so SE had to patch it.

Wynne Yilmaz(ITEM) Demicrystal3 days ago

That's impossible. Demicrystal has no counter for HQ, meaning it can only be NQ.

A possible reward from Wondrous Tails at 1, 2, or 3 lines. The quantity rewarded is increased for the number of lines required.

A possible 3-line reward from Wondrous Tails as a HQ item. The only difference between Ornate and the Normal versions is the 5 guaranteed slots for melding compared to the 2 slots.

Can anyone confirm if this drops from only Savage? Haven't had one drop yet for the Normal version.

Wynne Yilmaz(ACHIEVEMENT) Pal-less Palace II4 days ago

This achievement is possibly bugged as it won't be obtained once you beat the floor 100th boss. In order to earn this achievement, you have to be able to go to floors 101+ and KO at some point. This means that you must clear floors 1-100 without being KO'd to earn this achievement.
I'm not 100% sure if I'm correct so leave feedback on how you earned this achievement. (I earned mine by suiciding on Floor 101)

You must mooch a High Quality http://xivdb.com/item/12780/sweetfish in order to catch this fish. Mind the weather! You can only catch this when Rain transitions into Showers, so it's a rare weather pattern. Otherwise, it's a fairly good catch rate and it shouldn't be much trouble.
