Final Fantasy XIV: Patch 2.55 Screenshots

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will launch Patch 2.55: Before the Fall Part 2 one week from today. According to Yoshida, the new update will include:

  • The Final Coil of Bahamut will be added to the Duty Finder
  • The World of Darkness weekly gear limit will be removed
  • The amount of MGP you receive in the Gold Saucer will be adjusted
  • Adjustments will also be made to the Triple Triad tournaments
  • Considering making balance adjustments to Triple Triad NPCs since we've received lots of feedback that certain NPCs can be a bit too strong

This morning, Square Enix revealed 10 new screenshots of the patch! Catch them all after the jump.

Eorzea Examiner #34: Player-Generated Content

Hello and welcome to the 34th edition of the Eorzea Examiner, ZAMs column on Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. For this week’s column, we’re going to look at something a few other MMOs have played with over the years: player-generated content. Typically when an MMO gives players room to create something in-game, it’s usually limited to something like player housing and crafted items, where the impact on the game as a whole is limited to the player themselves or at most a small group of other players. MMOs like Neverwinter and the now defunct City of Heroes took this to another level and gave players the chance to add more substantial and long-lasting content to the game.

Heavensward, the first expansion for FFXIV, has promised us three new jobs without base classes so far, but there are so many additional options we can bring to Eorzea, both for standalone jobs and for those with base classes.
