Endgame Content to be Released With 6.2

Recommended Posts

Much like Shadowbringers, Endwalker has outdone itself with the quality of endgame content, being widely praised across the board. What's coming next for the most devoted of players in 6.2? Let's take a look at what we've got, and what's to come!

Each expansion, we see a new turn in the cycle of content. This cycle usually roughly stays the same; 3 instances of the 24-man Alliance Raids, 12 instances of the 8-man Normal Raids, a new Trial storyline usually having 3 new Trial bosses, and the occasional Unreal or Ultimate content. Endwalker is no different thus far, but in this case more of the same isn't a bad thing.

While the release schedules and formats may stay the same, the storylines and fights themselves do not. The most recent raid to arrive, Aglaia, is incredibly fun with a lot of fresh mechanics that the game hasn't seen before - or if we have seen them, they've been altered just enough to make it a fresh experience.

Endwalker's raid tier began with the first four Pandaemonium fights - Asphodelos - with the Savage versions released some weeks later. The Dragonsong's Reprise (Ultimate) was later released, with Ultimate fights being considered the most difficult content in the game. 

So what can we expect in patch 6.2?

The Special Site for the patch lays out a glimpse of what to look forward to, but for those itching for the latest and greatest challenges, you've got a few goodies coming your way.

This patch's Unreal trial will be Containment Bay S1T7; the fight from Heavensward in which we take on Sephirot, the primal of nature. Sephirot is an incredibly fun fight (and has one of the best music tracks in the game if you ask me), and I can't wait to see what a level 90 version of the encounter looks like.

The second wing of Pandaemonium, Abyssos, will also be released with Patch 6.2. If the past raid schedule is anything to go off of, we'll get 4 new fights in this section of the normal raids with the Savage versions released a two or three weeks later. Pandaemonium has us exploring the darker side of Elpis and the distant past, with some faces that seem familiar. The fights have been really unique and challenging, and I can't wait to see what else they'll do!

And finally, we'll get a glimpse of Criterion dungeons; 4 man dungeon content designed to be more difficult and rewarding. It's an interesting concept, but more endgame content is never a bad thing!

What are you most looking forward to, raiders? Any Endwalker fights that stick out as your favorites thus far? Admittedly, mine's got to be Rhalgr from Aglaia. Let us know below!

      With the return of the Yo-Kai event, it is once again time to catch them all and get your hands on original weapons, mounts, and minions, as well as a brand new framer’s kit!
      The beloved Yo-Kai Watch Event is coming back to Eorzea from April 24, 2024, at 8:00 AM GMT (6:00 PM AEST) until the release of Patch 7.0.
      This event will be identical to the previous ones, but with one additional reward: a framer's kit. The quest cannot be taken again if you have already completed it, but you can still earn Yo-Kai medals while equipped with the Yo-Kai Watch! And if you have lost your watch, it can be repurchased from the recompense officers in major cities.
      For this event, start by picking up the quest from the NPC "Poor-heeled Youth" in Ul'dah!

      Once the quest is completed, you will receive your first Yo-Kai watch. With this watch, you will be able to earn Yo-Kai medals from various content:
      Fates in La Noscea, The Black Shroud and Thanalan Fates in All regions of Heavensward Fates in All regions of Stormblood You will need to complete the FATES with either a silver or gold rating to receive medals at the end, and we suggest you team up with other players to make farming more enjoyable.
      Once you have collected enough medals, you can then exchange them for Yo-Kai minions at the Gold Saucer's wandering executive.

      There are a total of 17 different minions to collect, all of which are listed on this page: Yo-kai Watch: Gather One, Gather All!
      After exchanging 13 minions, you will receive the Whisper-go mount!

      Once you befriend all 17 minions, you can speak with Nohi at the Gold Saucer (X:5.2 Y:6.9) and purchase a brand new Yo-Kai watch framer's kit with MGP.
      Additionally, once all minions have been collected, you will be able to gather legendary Yo-Kai medals. These medals allow you to acquire different weapons; one weapon corresponds to each minion. Participating and completing the same Fates with the corresponding minion summoned will reward special Yo-Kai medals, which you can then exchange for the desired weapon.

      For example, if you want the Paw of the Crimson Cat weapon, you will need to complete Fates while equipped with Jibanyan. Occasionally, the Fate will reward you with legendary Jibanyan medals, which can then be exchanged for the weapon at the Gold Saucer's wandering executive. There are a total of 17 weapons to collect, one for each minion.
      After collecting 13 weapons, you will receive the Whisper-a-go-go mount, and after obtaining all 17 weapons, you will receive the Jibanyan Couch mount!

      As collecting medals can be quite challenging, Kaiyoko on Twitter/X has shared a personal guide that can help you identify which Fates to complete to get all the weapons you need:

      54.350.656 Liters of concoctions imbibed in the past year, nearly more than the annual ketchup consumption in the US! 26% of players started the game with ARR, 13% with Heavensward, 14% with Stormblood, 34% with Shadowbringers, and 13% with Endwalker! Starbird, Fat Cat and Lesser Panda are the Warriors of Light's favorite minions! Company Chocobo, SDS Fenrir and Fatter Cat are the most beloved mounts. Limsa Lominsa, Gridania and Old Sharlayan are the preferred Home Points. The most Formidable Foes are Hades, The Endsinger and The Warrior of Light. Warriors of Light have also shared what Final Fantasy XIV means to them - a wonderful blend of adventure, family, friends, fun, love, escape, exploration, and so much more!

      On top of that, you can also have a look at the amazing real-life minions belonging to Warriors all over the world:

      After more than a decade, the adventures in Eorzea are far from over. Warriors of Light and Darkness are still needed, and Dawntrail is set to help us create new, incredible memories!

      With the Benchmark now available, players have been busy testing their PCs, and some have already discovered an interesting new detail within the Benchmark!
      Many players have gone over the Dawntrail Benchmark cutscenes, particularly the gear and weapons that can be equipped on the character featured in the cutscene.
      In doing so, some have noticed that certain Viper weapons bear a resemblance to older weapons. For instance, as mentioned by Eksu Plosion on Twitter/X, different weapons for the Dreadwyrm and Omega sets can be seen in the Benchmark.
      The pressing question is: does this mean we will be able to obtain weapons from old ultimate fights or other older raids for the new Jobs?

      Yoshi-P did mention a desire to re-evaluate the rewards from various content, suggesting this could be a possibility. It would be a welcome addition to acquire new job weapons, even if it is just for the purpose of using them as weapon glams, as some of them look really nice.
      It is of course possible that these are merely new leveling weapons, but for now, the question remains unanswered! As the community speculates, only time will reveal the true nature of these newly found details.
