Macro Editing Menu Addition

 To ever improve the quality of life for adventurers, Square Enix has announced a new "Equipment Set" option for macros, to be implemented in the August version update of Final Fantasy XI. This feature will allow players to designate and equip multiple pieces of gear with a single command, thus reducing clutter for making macros. Twenty equipment sets will be available for registry when the content update is first implemented, with the possibility of that number increasing in the future!

Double Capacity Point & Double Simulacra Campaign!

 Two new campaigns will be making their way to Vana'diel in the new future, and the name of the game is double! On July 31st, a new Double Capacity Points and Double Simulacra Segment Campaign will begin, running through to August 3rd and August 11th, respectively. During the Double Capacity Points campaign, monsters will yield twice the amount of capacity points they normally would, allowing for quicker job point upgrades, while the Sumulacra Campaign will double the drop rate on segments obtained in various reives in Adoulin!

Alluvion Skirmishes

 Bravery will be tested and might will be challenged in the upcoming August version update, with the brand new Alluvion Skirmishes system. Similar to the previous Skirmish system, the Alluvion Skirmish will pit adventurers against enemies in labyrinths that change the further one goes.

The risks are great, but rewards will be well worth it, as new weapons and shields will be amongst the spoils, capable of being etched with glyphs for further power!
