Newfound Adventures Preliminary Patch Notes Released

Recommended Posts

NewAdv.png

After much waiting and a whole lot of sneak peeks at the content to come, Patch 6.1's patch notes are finally available!

It's no secret that - at least in my years of playing FFXIV - Patch 6.1 seems to be the most anticipated major patch of the game that wasn't an outright release of an expansion. The preliminary patch notes have been released today, and while they're subject to change, it still gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Unfortunately, no information about job changes has been released with these notes. But we can continue to hope that will change before the patch itself! (And hope they fix Living Dead and Blood Weapon for DRK but that's just a personal thing for me...) Buckle up and read them below, and let us know what you think! (You might want to grab your coffee and a snack, fellow Warriors of Light. This is a lot!)

A new type of PvP match between small teams, Crystalline Conflict, has been added.

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Crystalline Conflict PvP duties pit teams Astra and Umbra against one another in tactical confrontations. Each team may have up to five players, for a total of ten match participants. Teams are challenged to maintain control over a tactical crystal, which must be transported to a designated location amid the heat of battle.

There are three arenas currently available for Crystalline Conflict matches─the Palaistra, the Volcanic Heart, and Cloud Nine.

The Palaistra

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

The Volcanic Heart

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Cloud Nine

Rules

The rules of engagement for Crystalline Conflict are outlined below.

Duty   Details
Level Requirement   One or more jobs at level 30 or above
Time Limit   5 mins

Entering the Arena

Casual Matches
Results have no bearing on your ranking in Crystalline Conflict.
Custom Match
Results have no bearing on your ranking in Crystalline Conflict. Register with two parties of five players via the Duty Finder. There are no restrictions on party composition.
Ranked Matches
Register solo via the Duty Finder. Results will influence your ranking in Crystalline Conflict.

Role Requirements

There are no role requirements for Crystalline Conflict parties. However, matchmaking will ensure that no two players have the same job within a single party.

Basic Rules

Beginning the Match

Participants will be divided into Team Astra and Team Umbra and transported to their respective starting points. After a 30-second waiting period, the match will begin.

Chatting

Only Quick Chat is available during casual and ranked matches.
Custom matches allow for standard chat features in addition to Quick Chat.

Retaliation

Incapacitated players will be returned to their base after a short delay, where they will be allowed to rejoin combat with their HP and MP fully restored and all action recast timers reset.

Level and Item Level

When participating in Crystalline Conflict, all player attributes will be updated to their PvP counterparts.

Restrictions

The use of the following is prohibited while participating in Crystalline Conflict:

  • Class or job changes
  • Chocobo companions
  • Mounts
  • Teleportation
  • Return
  • Items
  • Gear changes

Abandoning Matches

Players who abandon a Crystalline Conflict match (not including players who join a match in progress or are vote kicked) will receive a penalty. Players so penalized will be unable to use the Duty Finder for 30 minutes.

Players inactive for over a period of two minutes will automatically be removed from play.

* Players who remain inside the duty with less than the required number of party members, or are participating in a custom match, will not receive a penalty.

Victory Conditions

To win, one team must move the tactical crystal from the center of the field to the goal point. If neither team accomplishes this during the time limit, the match will proceed into overtime.

The team with a greater progress score must keep the entire opposing team out of the bounds of the tactical crystal for three seconds to win. The team with a lesser progress score must beat the opponent's progress score during overtime to win.

* If neither team can fulfill the overtime victory requirements, the match will end in a draw.

The Tactical Crystal

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

The all-important object placed at the arena's centerpoint is called the "tactical crystal."

The tactical crystal will remain bound until the first 30 seconds of the match have passed. Once the tactical crystal is unbound, a ring will appear at its base. Should one team be fully in control of this ring─with no members of the opposing team present within its bounds─that team will be able to move the crystal.

Transporting the Tactical Crystal

The crystal can only be moved along the crystal line─a dedicated path within the arena.

Its movement will be halted when combatants from both teams are present within its bounds. When combatants from neither team are present, the crystal will move back toward the centerpoint.

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Tactical Crystal Speed

Should the tactical crystal be wrestled from your team's control, and you manage to reclaim it, the crystal will travel faster when moving back through a stretch of the line your team has moved it once before.
* Even if your team has failed to claim the crystal for the entirety of the match, once your team has gained control of the crystal, it will move at increased speed until it has returned to the centerpoint.

Checkpoints and Progression

Checkpoints can be found halfway between the centerpoint and each team's goal. Upon reaching a checkpoint, the tactical crystal will stop moving.

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

The team attempting to clear the checkpoint must remain in the crystal's ring until the Clear Progress gauge reaches 100%. The gauge will only increase so long as that team holds control of the ring. A greater majority of party members in the ring will hasten the gauge's progression.

Should the opposing team have a greater majority at any point, the tactical crystal will begin moving toward the opposing team's goal. However, any progress made in clearing the checkpoint will not be lost.

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Advanced Rules

Crystalline Conflict arenas include a variety of tactically useful elements to make matches more dynamic.

Sprint Zones

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

The Palaistra and Volcanic Heart feature unique paths suited to running. Entering these "sprint zones" will grant the effect of Swift Sprint, greatly increasing player movement speed.

Jump Glyphs

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Cloud Nine is equipped with jump glyphs. Stepping on a jump glyph will rapidly transport you to a specific location on the field.

Arena Events: Eruption

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

The Volcanic Heart periodically erupts, scattering self-destructing bombs across the field. Those who fail to avoid their explosive radii will take damage. Bomb cores will remain at the site of bombs' destruction, granting those who acquire them bonuses to damage dealt and limit gauge increases.

Arena Events: Turbulence

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Players cast up into the air by Cloud Nine's periodic turbulence will take damage upon being returned unceremoniously to the ground. However, they may acquire black chocobo feathers while in the air, granting them a soft landing and nullifying the damage. The locations of black chocobo feathers are indicated by markers on the ground. Those who do not wish to go flying can negate the effects of turbulence by using Guard. Turbulence also leaves behind a twister at the site where it occurred, and can be confirmed on the map. Stumbling into these twisters will result in damage and knockback.

Medicine Kits

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Each arena comes equipped with medicine kits. Accessing these kits will restore 50% of a player's HP, and each can only be claimed by one player.
* Medicine kits cannot be claimed by those whose HP is at 100%.
* Each kit can only be claimed by one player.
* Once a kit has been claimed, a replacement will be generated after a set period of time has passed.

Seasons

Seasons are periods of time in which players compete to earn the highest tier and Crystal Credit ranks possible. Announcements will be made on the Lodestone marking the beginning and ending of each season.

At the end of each season, players of sufficient rank will receive season rewards. Participants' current ranks are displayed on the Lodestone during a season. Please note that ranks will be reset between seasons.

Ranked Matches

The Bronze through Diamond tiers are divided further into "risers." The number of risers per tier varies.

Tier

A player's tier represents their standing in the hierarchy of Crystalline Conflict. Unlike the Feast, players cannot be demoted over the course of a season. As such, players will retain the current standing even when losing a match immediately after promotion to a higher tier.

Risers

The Bronze through Diamond tiers are divided further into "risers." The number of risers per tier varies.

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

Rising Stars

The new PvP ranking system uses Rising Stars, rather than ratings, to indicate progress within the Unranked through Diamond tiers. When you win a ranked match, you will gain one Rising Star. Similarly, a loss will remove one Star. Once you have earned the maximum Rising Stars for one riser, an additional win will allow you to move up a riser.

  • Winning a match when you have three Rising Stars will allow you to move up a riser, starting with one Rising Star.
4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f
  • After reaching the top riser for a tier and earning three Rising Stars, an additional win will advance you to the next tier, starting at the lowest riser with one Rising Star.
4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f
  • Winning three matches in a row will apply a streak bonus, netting you two Rising Stars per win. Earning a streak bonus while you possess two Rising Stars will allow you to move up a riser or tier depending on your current overall standing.
  • While it is possible to move down to a lower riser upon losing a match, you will never drop down to a lower tier during a given season.
  • Moreover, you cannot lose Rising Stars while you are unranked.

The Crystal Tier

There is one tier above Diamond─the Crystal tier. When ranked in this tier, your skill level will be reflected by your Crystal Credit, rather than Rising Stars. Your Crystal Credit score will increase by 100 upon winning a match, and decrease by 100 after losing. Significant differences between your team and the opposing team's average Credit will increase the amount your score changes upon a win or loss. Streak bonuses do not apply to Crystal Credit.

vNEWMNCsOTu709b_kR7LodvPu8.png

A new reward system applicable to all PvP content, Series Malmstones, has been added.

4ef995518bea6aaa2fd0b5efbe7adf24b20f7a6f

The Series Malmstones system provides unique rewards to players who participate in PvP during a given Series─a period of time lasting the duration of one major patch (e.g. from the release of Patch 6.1 until the release of Patch 6.2).

From the release of Patch 6.1, participating in PvP content will earn you Series EXP, which will increase your Series level. Increasing your Series level will unlock various Series rewards.

Series Level

The maximum Series level is 30, though you may continue to accumulate EXP and "extra levels" after that.

Series Rewards

Each Series lasts for a predetermined period of time. After a Series ends, a new one will begin, and available rewards will change accordingly─though rewards earned during one Series can still be claimed during the next. Make sure to check your Series malmstones and claim any earned rewards via the PvP Profile!

Trophy Crystals

A new currency, Trophy Crystals, has been added as a Series reward. Trophy Crystals can be exchanged at the Wolves' Den Pier for a variety of items.

vNEWMNCsOTu709b_kR7LodvPu8.png

The following changes have been made to the Wolves' Den Pier:

Use as Instant Portrait

Selects a portrait that reflects your current appearance. Such portraits are used to introduce players at the start of various duties. As of Patch 6.1, they are used to introduce combatants at the beginning of Crystalline Conflict PvP matches.

Link with Gear Set

When linked with a particular gear set, portraits can be set automatically as your instant portrait whenever you equip said gear set.

It should be noted that portrait data is saved locally. As such, any portraits you have created will not be accessible when playing on a different client.
* However, data used for adventurer portraits and Instant Portraits will be saved to the game servers.

      When Patch 6.1 dropped, Square Enix introduced a new housing system for the Empyreum residential district.
      When Patch 6.1 dropped, Square Enix introduced a new housing system for the Empyreum residential district. Previously, Final Fantasy XIV was notorious for how purchasing plots of land worked. Aspiring homeowners would need to brave invisible housing timers that could range anywhere from 30 minutes to 24 hours before they could buy the plot of their dreams. To put it into perspective, players needed to camp outside a plot's placard for hours on end, continuously clicking on the placard on and off until the cooldown ended. This led to worrying health concerns -- chief among them was carpal tunnel syndrome. 
      Square Enix strove to change that with their new system that dropped in Patch 6.1, which was primarily based on "lottery wards." This meant that everyone had a fair chance of winning their desired plot through a lottery system governed by what is essentially a random number generator. All seemed well up until the results and winners were announced -- a bug was discovered in the system where the winning number zero was chosen despite no players being able to select it, leaving numerous plots empty without ownership. 
      After the scheduled maintenance, Square Enix have announced the housing lottery bug fixed! You can find the original post here.
      Resuming Housing Lottery System, and Instructions on Seeing Correct Housing Lottery Results (May 20)(Source)
      We have fixed the bug on the housing lottery system and reflected the lottery data to the housing server on Monday, May 16, 2022.

      Therefore, the next housing lottery will resume on Thursday, May 26, 2022 at 8:00 a.m. (PDT).

      When the next lottery resumes, you will lose the right to purchase any land you have not purchased. If you have been selected and have not yet purchased your land, please do so before the next lottery sale begins.

      Details on housing lottery issue, can be found below:

      A new official music video for Final Fantasy XIV has been released!
      Since its drop earlier today, the music video is now #43 trending on YouTube. Please be aware that there are ENDWALKER SPOILERS present. Proceed at your own discretion!

      With so many emotional moments in the expansion revisited, it makes me hopeful that eventually a "Close in the Distance" music video would also be released. Would you also want the ending artwork as your desktop wallpaper?

      Colin Ryan is an English actor most well-known for his role as Alphinaud in Final Fantasy XIV. He has lent his voice since the series' Heavensward expansion, and there are no roles more memorable or iconic than Alphinaud throughout the course of the MMORPG's career.
      It has come to light that Colin's brother passed away yesterday, as revealed from the actor's tweet. Our deepest condolences go out to Colin Ryan for his indescribable loss.

      After looking into ongoing issues with the new housing lottery system introduced in the current patch, the FFXIV dev team is preparing to restore previously lost data and resume the housing lottery cycle.
      You can find the complete notice regarding the update below.
      Housing Lottery System Issue (May 13): Follow-up 6 (Source)

      This is Naoki Yoshida, Producer and Director of FINAL FANTASY XIV.

      I thank you for your continued patience as we work to resolve the ongoing issues with the housing lottery system introduced in patch 6.1.

      These issues have been extensive and persistent, and I truly apologize for the time it has taken to resolve them. However, I am pleased to report that we have completed preparations to implement our fixes and restore lottery data.
      Reproducing the Issue Fixing Identified Errors Verifying Fixes Restoring Lottery Data We have completed the above steps to identify and correct the reported issues and are now ready to conduct maintenance on the public servers.
      Maintenance to Restore Data
      As I mentioned in our previous update, we will be conducting maintenance to restore lottery results data on Monday, May 16. This maintenance will fix identified errors and properly relay lottery results for affected plots to the appropriate servers. As a result:
      Winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly. Temporary suspensions imposed on plot purchases and relocations will be lifted. If you have a winning lottery number, please be sure to finalize your land purchase by 23:59 JST (7:59 AM PDT) on Thursday, May 26. The next lottery cycle will begin promptly at 00:00 JST on Friday, May 27 (8:00 AM PDT on Thursday, May 26), at which point you will lose the ability to claim land you won during this lottery. We will announce this deadline again as it grows closer, so please do not forget to claim your land.
      Next Lottery Cycle
      Once we have confirmed that data restoration was successful and everything is operating as intended, the housing lottery will resume.
      The next lottery cycle will begin at 00:00 JST on Friday, May 27 (8:00 AM PDT on Thursday, May 26). It will have a typical 5-day entry period and 4-day results period. As this is very important, allow me to reiterate: you must finalize all land purchases for this current lottery before the next lottery cycle begins.
      For winning participants who already received a gil refund due to the “Winning Lottery Number of 0” error
      Once lottery data has been restored, some participants may discover that they had, in fact, won the lottery, despite already receiving a refund due to the lottery number error. Even if your deposit was refunded due to this system error, your ability to finalize the purchase of a won plot will remain unaffected.
       
      In patch 6.2 we plan to implement an NPC by which you may voluntarily return the deposit you were accidentally refunded.
      As these housing lottery issues have been significant and caused great stress and frustration in many players, we have no intention of performing a data rollback to forcibly rescind any refunded gil. We will make an announcement regarding the voluntary return of housing deposits once the NPC in question is ready to be implemented.

      In closing, I would like to thank you all once again for your patience and understanding this past month, and extend my deepest apologies for the trouble and inconvenience these issues have caused. We will do everything in our power to safely restore your data, fix any remaining issues, and bring you all a fair and functional housing lottery system. Thank you for your continued support.

      The previous Weapon Design contest included all jobs except for those added in Endwalker, and now Reaper and Sage have a chance to shine!
      Part 2 of this year's Weapon Design contest was announced this morning, giving the artists in our community an opportunity to participate and compete once more. If you missed it, you can read about the winners and some of the finalists right here! 
      Now, those who didn't manage to earn any of the rewards have a chance to enter yet again. This time, Square Enix is asking the community to design a few extra weapons for Reaper and Sage. The scythe-wielding Reapers should come with some interesting designs for the polearm, but I'm more interested to see the creativity that people come up with for the Sage's nouliths!
      Will you be entering and giving it another shot? Let us know so we can root you on! Good luck, artists!
