Final Fantasy XI Test Server Update

 The latest content to hit the Final Fantasy XI's official Test Server has been announced, and the words of the day are Legion and Limbus. The adjustments to Legion involve adjusting the hit points of enemies found in 18-player Legion battlefields to roughly half as much as their counterparts in the 36-player fights, making them more accessible for single alliance groups. The adjustments to Limbus involve the implementation of the new, high-level Limbus regions announced earlier in the year, with the first areas of the new Temenos and Apollyon battlefields being available for players to dive into!

Want to let us know what you think about the changes to Legion and Limbus, or just the general direction that Final Fantasy XI is going? Feel free to do so over on the ZAM forums!
