FFXIV Patch 6.2 Notes

Recommended Posts

67162-ffxiv-patch-62-announced.jpg

Patch notes for 6.2 are now live! Buckle up and enjoy the ride — it's going to be a long read.

This patch drops the highly anticipated installment of Pandaemonium's next tier: Abyssos! It's important to note that the Savage version of these raids will not be available until August 30th, 03:00 PDT

Island Sanctuary will also be making its debut, and players will be in for a massive treat! The Patch notes detail the types of crafting and gathering that will be available, the types of facilities that can be built, as well as the requirements to visit friends' islands. 

This patch also highlights some very exciting QOL updates! Notable changes (and my personal favorite) include the revamp to the Actions and Traits UI. You may now view job rotations as presented in the form of flowcharts, and are able to choose between a compact view and a detailed view. Another highly requested addition is recast timers, which will be displayed in the middle of an action as it is used.

Speaking of jobs, some highlights to job action changes include Astrologian being guaranteed to redraw a card with a different sign. Astrologians rejoice; you can finally reliably get the best effect out of your Astrodyne! Special shoutout to Sage's Holos for getting a brand new partywide shield on top of their existing damage mitigation. 

On the flipside, players who had been expecting a revision to the PVP Paladin's colloquially named "Cheese Cover" to easily claim nodes will likely be disappointed. In arenas with nodes such as Onsal Hakair, Paladins will still be able to cover a player of their choice, of whom will be invincible as they claim nodes uninterrupted. However, there are still classes that can bypass this, such as Dancer and Reaper. 

Check out the full extent of the notes below!

We are proud to present the patch notes for Buried Memory, which follows the Warrior of Light and their companions on a perilous journey into the void.

This patch also introduces the next raid dungeon Pandæmonium: Abyssos, a challenging new trial, and Island Sanctuary for those adventurers seeking a taste of the slow life.


* Additional features will be implemented in future updates:
Variant dungeons, criterion dungeons, Manderville weapon quests, and Omicron tribal quests are scheduled to be released in Patch 6.25.

* This page previously indicated that Pandæmonium: Abyssos (Savage) would be accessible on Tuesday, August 30 at 1:00 a.m. (PDT); however, the correct release date is August 30 at 3:00 a.m. (PDT).
* We had previously listed an incorrect time for the Savage release. The correct time is August 30 at 3:00 a.m. (PDT); we had originally planned for this timing to stabilize login conditions and to avoid congestion in certain duties during the weekly reset at 1:00 a.m. (PDT). We apologize for any confusion the error may have caused.

The island sanctuary allows you to create your own personal paradise amidst the natural beauty of the Cieldalaes.

The hideaway is your base of operations on your island. Here you may build facilities, care for animals, grow crops, and more. You may expand your hideaway as you make progress perfecting your island sanctuary.

Releasing Minions

One of each minion, up to 40, can be released to roam free in the various areas of your island. As they while away the hours wandering about the island, you may find they behave differently when left to their own devices.

6eee1ca8a733856669d901d95d2fa9db46a466e6

Facilities

The Cozy Cabin

The cozy cabin is the primary facility of your hideaway. Here you may access the orchestrion to play your favorite tunes, exchange various items with merchants stationed there, and more.

After choosing your desired expedition area and the number of days you wish your mammets to forage, they will venture out to gather materials, returning once per day until the foraging expedition is over.

6eee1ca8a733856669d901d95d2fa9db46a466e6

As you continue to engage in the above activities on your island sanctuary, it will be possible to renovate your facilities to higher levels.

      The final entry in the collection "Tales From the Dawn" has been published. This time, it follows Jullus, a Garlean prominent in Endwalker's Garlemald arc, as he struggles to rebuild his nation in the aftermath of the Final Days. 
      With the conclusion of Endwalker, we are thrown into another narrative in Sharlayan, without any news of how our enemy-turned-friend from Garlemald is faring alongside our favorite Leveilleur twins. Jullus began as a close-minded Garlean soldier tempered by their extremely discriminating view of outsiders such as the Warrior of Light's alliance, but shows a significant amount of character development over the span of the Garlemald arc. Personally, he's become one of my favorite NPCs after the Scions; that's saying something in a game with a massive cast spanning four whole expansions!
      We are brought along with him on his difficult journey to recover his homeland — his heartbreak, his sorrow, his history are laid bare in bittersweet detail. We explore the echoes of Garlemald's erstwhile glory, beneath the layers of their antagonistic front. I may have choked up a bit reading some of the passages, as the descriptions of Jullus' loss are so vivid it felt like I was physically there myself. What do you think of the Endwalker side stories, and which one is your favorite? 
      A Question of Death (Source)
      Jullus awoke to near darkness.
      He was but one of many soldiers, young and old, lying in Tertium. Every ilm of the carriage floor was covered in bedrolls, leaving no room for careless movement.
      Taking care not to disturb the others, he sat up, straining to make out the hands of the old clock salvaged by who-knows-who that was hidden somewhere in the gloom. The near edge of dawn... Further down, beyond his sleeping fellows, was the wavering blue glow of the ceruleum stove.
      It was not the cold that had roused him from his slumber. We're old friends now. Before accepting the Ilsabard contingent's proffered aid, his people had little materiel─and certainly no magic─to warm frozen fingers and toes. The exhaustion that often carried him to sleep still failed to prevent him from regularly stirring in the night.
      Thinking he might pass the time with fresh air at least, he reached down to drag his boots and bag towards him. Conscious of every noise, he dressed stealthily, holding his breath when Publius rolled over next to him. Fortunately, there came no word of complaint, and Jullus was free to slip out and mull over the events of the previous night in peace.
        They'd been huddled around a lamp in an out-of-the-way corner, the familiar scent of honey and spices wafting from their cradled mugs─one small comfort afforded by a surplus in rations. The conversation had again settled into a lull when Publius broke the silence.
      "I may just leave for Sharlayan."
      The grimacing youth─of an age with Jullus, though low in rank─had barely spoken a word all evening. Now that he had, none knew how to respond.
      It wasn't surprising. Inevitable, really. Survive the Telophoroi and Final Days they had, but Garlemald was still in a sorry state. The Emperor was gone, the senate disbanded, and nations were hesitant to commit to any policy concerning the erstwhile empire.
      There had been some hesitant steps toward forming an interim government, but neither Garlemald nor its neighbors had the means to establish one immediately. The provincial leaders were waiting to see which way the winds would blow, welcoming their countrymen home while making no moves to resurrect the Empire themselves. Rumors that this or that province was poised to formally declare independence, or had as good as seceded already, ran rampant.
      It was only natural to give Garlemald up as a lost cause. Even as some returned to rebuild, others who had been tempered and taken to other nations for treatment petitioned to remain there, and these nations─Sharlayan among them─welcomed the refugees with open arms. Though Publius might be the first among present company, he would not be the last to make a new home far from the old.
      Publius stared into his cup as the moment dragged on. In this nation of the fallen, what was left to say?
      "...You should speak with Alphinaud or Alisaie on the morrow. They'll put you in contact with someone you can trust," Jullus ventured. The ever-helpful pair was staying at Camp Broken Glass, and like as not had plenty to be doing already, but he would be remiss not to mention it.
      "I'll do that."
      With that small gesture, the atmosphere changed. Publius exhaled in relief, and the others were soon offering their own words of encouragement and vows to meet again. Though their drinks had long gone cold, their cheers gave them warmth enough.
      "To our brothers and our homeland!"
      The brisk winds carried away sleep's warm haze as Jullus climbed the slope that led out of the station. Beyond the shaft's angular portal, the weak morning light revealed the stark outline of his reality.
      The remaining spire of the once-shining Palatium Novum stood alone in the city center, amongst homes reduced to steel skeletons and grey rubble. Beyond these unnatural hills loomed the Tower of Babil, grasping for the heavens.
      Tertium's surrounds had been spared out-and-out obliteration, but were dead all the same. None remained to hurry to work or school, or stagger home after a night on the town. None remained to clear snow from a neighbor's path, or rove helplessly in their dog's wake. The people who had given this place life a few short months ago were gone. How many even had the chance to say good-bye?
      Jullus breathed deep of the frozen air, but though its icy pinpricks grounded him in the present, it was powerless to dispel the long nightmare. The vision endured, implacable, without regard for the dreamers. To the shrewdest of minds and the purest of hearts, fate offered no justice nor justification.
      "Yet you would ask me why."
      That injury should have healed. Yet it itched at him now─a scab that bled and bled, threatening to hollow him out from within. Even as he picked at it, his feet carried him forward─better to survey the surrounds for threats─and into the silent city.
        Unforgiving grey. Destruction and loss. All silent as the grave, as if even beasts preferred not to pick through these bones of an empire so early in the morn.
      A flash of movement caught his eye─a scrap of old newsprint trapped in the tumbledown debris of a roadside ruin. The last will and testament of someone's breakfast table. He drew closer, mindful of the potential for further collapse.
      "I remember this..."
      A special edition, distributed on Unity Day several years past. The celebration commemorating Garlemald's founding and the heroes who had labored for the Empire was always a tremendous affair for residents of the capital, most of whom spent the day reveling. The eldest told stories of meager harvests and desperate clashes as choirs sang old marching songs. Hawkers along the avenues sold food, drinks, traditional adornments from the campi, and the latest magitek baubles.
      Naught was more highly anticipated than the military parade─a show of strength and patriotism that never failed to inspire both awe and pride. Countless soldiers and magitek units moved in time through the city, beating a steady rhythm towards the imperial palace, where the Emperor's family stood assembled to receive them.
      They led us to greatness. We who formed the vanguard of history's grand march forward. His city was the heart of the world, through which flowed blood stronger than steel─a bond between countrymen that would remain unbroken even should their every enemy join together to oppose them. Glory be to Garlemald.
      The Unity Day described in this print had taken place while Jullus was in the academy, and marked the last year that the ailing Solus had been in attendance. Though the lead article detailing the events and speeches of the day was in tatters, the accompanying portrait of the imperial family remained.
      At its center, naturally, was the stern visage of Solus zos Galvus. Though still dignified in his old age, the gaze which he fixed upon the reader was more melancholic than proud. Never saw the man smile once. To the Emperor's right stood Titus, second of Solus's sons, along with his wife Arrecina and son Nerva. Both Titus and his son had a strained look about them, not dissimilar to the younger Solus found in the history books.
      On His Radiance's left was his grandson Varis, the only legacy of the deceased crown prince Lucius. A proud one, too─Varis was tall and broad of shoulder, and his comportment marked him a prime candidate for high legatus even then. His wife and right-hand, Carosa, had passed away in her prime, and so he was flanked instead by his mother, Hypatia. Though she departed to join Carosa a mere year after this portrait was taken, she supported Varis's claim to the throne until the very end. And then there was the young man with a faraway look in his eyes and an air of detachment...
      "Would you be 'happier' had I a 'good reason'?"
      Zenos yae Galvus. Though his anger had cooled since their encounter on the Eblan Rime, Jullus nevertheless found himself wrenched back to the present with no little displeasure.
      His homeland was gone. That much was plain, even as he clung to the ragged scrap of remembrance. He hadn't known then whence the fervor of that day would lead, but knew well now that it would never be reborn. Even should Garlemald rise from the ashes, its age had ended.
      And what of us? A new day had dawned, and Jullus would not suffer his people to remain in the dark. Yet what star were they to follow?
      Jullus shook out the paper, folded it neatly, and tucked it in his pocket before leaving the ruin behind.
        The streets were still and silent, his crunching footsteps the only sound. Playing his role of watchman, he investigated the semi-intact structures he came across, but found little of note. No food or supplies remained, only the detritus of peaceful lives─naught worth saving then or now. A fine layer of ash covered splintered furniture and forgotten trinkets, forming cairns in the gloom.
      After a time, he arrived at a house he had never explored in his prior wanderings. With the roof torn off and the walls half-crumbled, it seemed unlikely to hold anything of value, but he nevertheless picked his way through the frosted rubble that would have once formed the lintel. Once inside, he dusted himself off and took in his surroundings─and drew a startled breath.
      Jullus had seen enough death by now to recognize it at a glance. He approached the soldier and knelt to examine his corpse. Though the cold had prevented significant decay, it was clear he had died some time ago. Had it been during the war, the body would have been removed, so he could only be one of the tempered or their victims. The bite and scratch marks suggested the latter. Like the scars my family gave me.
      He removed the helmet carefully─not a face he recognized, so probably not a member of the Ist Legion. Just another poor soul who had escaped the tempering, exhausted the last of his strength, and died anyway.
      Jullus would offer no gods-bound prayers as an Eorzean might, but nevertheless set the helmet aside to pay his respects. Though the sentiment rang hollow, he silently encouraged the deceased to find peace with his ancestors and watch over his kin.
      Alphinaud and Alisaie claimed that the Scions had visited the aetherial sea, where all souls returned. There, they were healed of their traumas and washed clean of memories─even should not a single prayer be offered on their behalf. Their deeds in life had no bearing on their place within the relentless machinery of death and rebirth─made no more difference than Garlemald's vaunted unity had to its ultimate fate.
      If the twins spoke true, then what meaning was there in any of it? What was life, if not another pointless parade?
        It occurred to him that this was probably not the most respectful place to ruminate on life's worth. My new friend here would certainly have an opinion. He had no tools for a proper burial, but if he could at least make note of the man's name...
      Alas, there was no identification to be found. Understandably not a priority for you at the time. His armaments were standard-issue, and provided no hint either. Although...
      "What have we here?"
      Gently prising open the corpse's fist revealed the empty case for a magitek armor identification key. Had it been stolen after his death? That didn't make sense─a thief wouldn't have repositioned the dead man's hand, which had been clutching the thing so desperately. As if in prayer. But if he had reason to hope that a comrade might escape, or that rescue was on the way, then maybe...
      "You gave it away," Jullus muttered, as another memory surfaced in his mind.
      It was summer─of the same year as the newsprint he'd found earlier. A friend had insisted he read some poetry collection, and in the spirit of camaraderie Jullus obliged. He had little interest in elegies, often finding them difficult to parse, but one inscrutable passage had stayed with him:
      "Let this be my final gift to you. In death, my love."
        In death we have the power to bequeath the life we might have had─the possibilities and potential─to others. To grant them what they need to go on...or so the poet said.
      Was your key one such gift?
      Would my mother, my brother, my sister─would they tell me to accept theirs?
      Lord Quintus, with his suicide? My comrades, whom I failed? My countrymen, gone without a word?
      Did you leave your lives, and your love, to me?
        The dead do not answer, yet the wound within ceases its bleeding for a time.
      If that is our truth...
      "Then let it be our meaning. Let it be the chain which binds us through generations. Live on in me, as I would have in you."
      And perhaps...
      "Perhaps we may yet live on in others."
      The dead do not answer, but light shines through the broken ceiling, and Jullus follows it to behold a brightened sky. His comrades at Tertium will be waking soon. In apology and gratitude, he offers one last silent prayer to his kinsman ere departing.
      Be at peace─and know that you are with me.
      Jullus stands, and forges ahead into the dawn.

      Square Enix has released a statement regarding one of the adjustments they made in Patch 6.21 — the reduction of the boss' health values in Abyssos: The Eighth Turn. 
      They go on to explain why they made that change, and it appears to be more than just a balance issue on their part. It goes to show significant awareness of the player community, as well as the state of the game in general. With this change, they hope that certain jobs will no longer be excluded from party finder and lessen player frustration.
      Lastly, they explain their process for balancing raids and the source of their miscalculation, which may prove to be an enlightening read. While some players may think the corrections are essentially a "nerf" (the P8S clear memes on social media are aplenty), it's understandable why they made the choices they did. Read on more below!
      Adjustments to Abyssos: The Eighth Circle (Savage) (Source)
      Hello, this is Naoki Yoshida, Producer and Director of FINAL FANTASY XIV.

      There has been a lot of discussion surrounding our explanation for adjusting the HP of the boss in Abyssos: The Eighth Circle (Savage) in Patch 6.21, as well as the necessity of the adjustment itself.

      Firstly, please allow me to apologize for the disruption caused by this balancing issue, and for any offense resulting from the insufficient explanation we initially provided.

      In this post, I hope to clear up any misunderstandings as to how and why this adjustment was made.
      Reason for the HP Adjustment
      As was explained in the Patch 6.21 notes, a miscalculation on our part resulted in the boss's HP being roughly 1% too high in comparison to the difficulty of previous fourth-stage Savage raids.

      We do, of course, understand and appreciate that many players nevertheless honed their ability rotations, raised item levels, and repeated the fight over and over in order to claim victory.

      Having the HP set to this higher value, however, had other undesirable consequences, including:
      Certain jobs being excluded from party recruitment A growing dissatisfaction with the overly punishing degree of difficulty As our miscalculation was the root cause of these issues, we decided that the best course of action was to explain our mistake and correct the inflated HP to the value it should have been in the first place. This type of correction has little precedence in FFXIV's development, and although the decision was made after considerable debate, we once again apologize for the impact it had on player enjoyment.
      Source of the Miscalculation
      This issue was touched upon in the patch notes, but allow me to explain our balancing process in further detail.

      Firstly, the development team bases adjustments on the following premise:

      The top percentage of players are overwhelmingly better at the game than we are.

      We regret not stating this more clearly in the previous explanation, but said premise is the reason why we do not release content tuned precisely as it was when the battle team’s balance testers cleared it.

      We always add a little bit extra to the boss values before rechecking the fight and releasing it live.

      The team responsible for balancing boss fights does so without debug commands and at the appropriate item level, employing available materia, foods, and medicines while experimenting with mitigating actions and various job compositions. Yet we recognize that player skill far exceeds our own. If we were to ship content with the same values which challenged our battle team, the top raiders would be deprived of that by-the-skin-of-your-teeth victory in the initial week of release.

      Based on the team's skill and our experience, that "little bit extra" usually translates to:

      Balance test clear values +1-2% HP

      The final values account for other mathematical factors too, of course, such as the estimated damage the party could deal from the moment of victory to the end of the time limit, as well as total burst damage potential based on frequency and amount inflicted. The numbers these various calculations are based on are what we were referencing when we said that our team’s performance was higher than anticipated.

      This latest installment features a boss closely tied to the dark past of a major character, and so we were focused on making this battle even more of a challenge than usual. As such, the battle team spent an inordinate amount of time together designing and testing the fight mechanics, which in turn led to them improving party coordination and communication beyond what they might usually achieve for a given boss fight. Final adjustments were, however, still based on the team's victory data, and so the "little bit extra" we added for the release proved to be that little bit too much.

      Reasons aside, our adjustments were off by that crucial 1% and we again offer our apologies to those whose gaming experience was adversely affected by the correction and insufficient explanation.

      A high-difficulty raid is a special kind of battle. We want players to enjoy a satisfying, hard-won victory, and we keep that ideal in mind when making tweaks and balance adjustments. Although we failed to walk that delicate line this time, the experience will help us to design a more perfectly thrilling battle in the future.
      Why Adjust the Duty, Rather than Job Balance?
      When balancing jobs, each job’s base damage numbers at the applicable item level are adjusted with respect to the difficulty of playing that particular job and its rotation, as well as its support actions and their effects.

      Naturally, the above factors are also affected by the mechanics and combination thereof at work in each battle─meaning that every job’s numbers will not necessarily be at ideal values during all available battles. In addition to this inherent variance, there are indeed times when our calculations or adjustments are incorrect, producing damage numbers lower than intended and requiring subsequent strengthening of a job.

      In this case, when considering job balance more broadly, the jobs that needed emergency adjustment in this fashion were Paladin and Warrior. However, the aforementioned issue with Abyssos: The Eighth Circle (Savage) also caused certain jobs to be better suited to the raid than others, and made the damage check required to clear extremely strict, resulting in a situation where players felt obligated to choose jobs with higher damage output when attempting the raid.

      Attempting to ameliorate this by buffing certain jobs without making changes to the raid itself would have negatively impacted overall balance within each role, and likely resulted in disappointment for those whose jobs were already dealing sufficient damage for the raid and therefore received no adjustments. Unfortunately, adjusting all jobs in such a short period is also not feasible.

      Thus:
      The root cause of the issue was a mistake in balancing the duty An immediate fix that maintains role balance was required. It is a game design fundamental as well as our policy that, rather than adjust the jobs to suit each battle, we balance the jobs independently, and only then set the battle content difficulty. Changing the job balance for one single duty would end up causing more problems than it solves, and so we decided to address the problem in the manner we did─by ameliorating the root cause.

      I appreciate that, regardless of our rationale, this issue has been a source of frustration for many, and I apologize for that. I hope, however, that this has helped clarify our approach.
      In Conclusion
      The adjustment to Abyssos: The Eighth Circle was never intended to be a “nerf,” but merely the correction of values that were set inappropriately for a fourth-stage Savage raid to begin with.

      Nevertheless, I understand that it feels like a nerf for those who worked hard and were on the verge of clearing the fight as it was originally implemented, and I regret having caused such disappointment.

      As we strongly wish you to continue enjoying fiercely challenging Savage fights, particularly in the early days after release, we will do our utmost to further improve the tuning of these battles. Furthermore, we will strive to better understand what our players think about such issues and improve our operational protocols─perhaps by waiting a week before implementing fixes, in addition to providing details on our perspective─so that if we again find ourselves in a similar situation, we may arrive at a solution that is more satisfying to everyone.

      At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I sincerely apologize for any disruption that our error may have caused to your gameplay experience, and appreciate your patience.

      Notes for Patch 6.21 have been released! Features implemented in this update include the addition of Echo to Pandaemonium: Asphodelus (Savage), and other hotfix issues. 
      A very notable change in this update is the reduction of the boss' HP in Abyssos: The Eighth Circle. Many players have noted the unusually high DPS check to clear the fight, which resulted in numerous difficulties within statics. The HP values have been lessened by 1%, which apparently was the intended effect from the beginning.

      Combo potency has been increased from 410 to 430. Fell Cleave   Potency has been increased from 460 to 470. Upheaval   Potency has been increased from 350 to 360. The HP of Hephaistos in Abyssos: The Eighth Circle (Savage) has been reduced.
      This adjustment applies to both phases of the battle.
      Reasoning for HP Adjustment
      In our endeavor to create an encounter more challenging than Asphodelos: The Fourth Circle (Savage), the team responsible for final adjustments spent a great deal more time than usual working on balance for this raid battle.

      Under normal circumstances, the DPS of this team serves as a base for determining a boss HP value that results in clears as close to the time limit as possible. However, as extra time was dedicated to testing this battle, the team's overall performance proved to be higher than usual. As a result, the base values used for adjustments were too high, with final values roughly 1% higher than intended.

      We have reduced the boss's HP to bring the battle in line with our initial balance projections. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
      Players will now receive the power of the Echo in Pandæmonium: Asphodelos (Savage).
      The Echo will take effect upon entering Pandæmonium: Asphodelos (Savage), increasing players' maximum HP, damage dealt, and healing potency by 10%.
      * Unlike other instances, the strength of the Echo will not increase in the event all party members are incapacitated.

      The following issues have been addressed. An issue when playing as dragoon wherein the effect of Right Eye granted by Dragon Sight is removed when the target party member under the effect of Left Eye is incapacitated. An issue on the island sanctuary wherein certain animals did not appear despite meeting the requirements to find them. An issue on the island sanctuary wherein grazing animals were placed outside the pasture. An issue on the island sanctuary wherein the workshop and granary did not function as intended under certain conditions. An issue wherein the islekeep's index could be accessed outside of the island sanctuary under certain conditions. An issue on the island sanctuary wherein name plates erroneously displayed in situations where they should not. An issue wherein players who entered an instanced duty or logged out of the game while on an island sanctuary would return to the island at a different location under certain conditions. An issue on the island sanctuary wherein certain achievements could not be earned despite meeting their requirements. An issue on the island sanctuary wherein online status would not automatically change between "Online" and "Away from Keyboard." An issue when using the glamour dresser wherein executing the /isearch command with a large number of items in the dresser and Armoire forcibly closed the game client. An issue wherein the Rowena's representative NPC in Foundation would not allow the exchange of certain materia. An issue wherein equipping Isle Farmhand's Boots together with certain other gear caused their graphics to display incorrectly. An issue wherein the music played using the Stigma Orchestrion Roll and Toll of the Bells Orchestrion Roll were erroneously switched. An issue wherein a blank confirmation prompt would appear when requesting gear repairs under certain conditions. An issue wherein the cost of teleporting from the Stygian Insenescence Cells was incorrect. An issue when using group pose wherein characters using certain emotes would not stop moving when paused under certain conditions. An issue when portraits linked to multiple gear sets were transferred from the beta version to the official version wherein any edits made to said portraits were applied to all linked gear sets. An issue wherein the Dynamic Resolution function (β version) was not achieving the expected effect even with the setting enabled. (Windows version) Other various issues have also been addressed.
