FFXIV PLL #74 Recap - 6.3 Live Letter Part 1

Hello everyone! Welcome to the recap of Patch 6.3 live letter part 1.

This is our first time trying out a recap, so feel free to give us some feedback on ways we can improve, etc.

Video recap can be viewed here: 

Live translations of the next PLL can be viewed on HurricaneChiela's twitch channel.

On Friday November 12th, part one of the 6.3 live letter was held, revealing new information about what’s in store for us.

This is the 74th live letter, and also the 10 year anniversary of the 1.0 servers shutting down. For part 1, they mentioned they will introduce a lot of content and then go into greater detail in part 2. From the following, Yoshi P will be involved in approving and finalizing a lot of content for 6.3, so much more is in store for us in part 2.

Patch 6.3’s name is “Gods Revel, Lands Tremble” and will be released in early January 2023.

01.jpg

Content to come in 6.3
New Main Scenario Quests
From the screenshots, Zero will be heavily involved in the next patch. Alphinaud and Alisaie will come back after a long break.

02.jpg

03.jpg

Tataru’s Grand Endeavor 
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Hancock and Tataru together, Yoshi P was wondering aloud where the story will take us.

04.jpg

Tales of Newfound Adventure
Yoshi P mentioned there are probably some players who haven’t done this, and if you haven’t tried it yet you should check it out because the story is very good.

05.jpg

Somehow further Hildibrand 
Continues in 6.35 with a new cute friend. The dev team spent a long time making sure to get the balance right between the head and eyes.

06.jpg

Manderville Weapons 
Also continuing in 6.35. They teased this screenshot and again were wondering aloud what this has to do with the relic quest.

07.jpg

New Tribal Quests 6.35 - The Loporrits for Crafters
Yoshi P tried to get viewers to guess what might be the next tribal quest, and many successfully guessed Loporrits. There’s going to be a lot of fun stuff that happens with them, so definitely go and check it out.

New Dungeon - Lapis Manalis as part of the MSQ
Yoshi P mentioned that there’s a lot of depth to this place from a lore standpoint, but they don’t want to say too much about it. The Japanese name includes “snow mountain” in it, which fits with the screenshots being shown.

08.jpg

09.jpg

There’s a lot that’s going to happen with the 13th, and they’re teasing that the story will continue forward there. “I don’t want to spoil it, so I’m not going to say anything!”

New trials - Normal and Extreme
It was mentioned in previous patches, but one thing they love is the sense of surprise they can give Warriors of Light when seeing new content for the first time, and so they want to preserve that surprise even if the MSQ hints at the direction it might take. As such, they are keeping the next trial’s content a secret for now.

New Unreal Trial - Containment Bay P1T6 (Unreal), Sophia
There are quite a few mechanics in Sophia, and they wanted to clean it up for this and make sure it fits the modern day of gameplay while preserving the original experience of the fight.

New Alliance Raid - Myths of the Realm 2 - “Euphrosyne”
Yoshi P mentioned that it’s also hard for him to pronounce the name of the new alliance raid. And again they’re trying to tease us about which gods will come around this time, they don’t want to reveal it yet.

They showed a couple of screenshots, one with Graha and a strange device on his back. Some chat members joked that it looks like a slot machine. 

10.jpg

11.jpg

Yoshi P mentioned that they will start working on adjustments for the alliance raid from next week.

For the second screenshot, many jokes were made that it looks like the Windows XP default background.

Ultimate Duty #5
Releasing 2 weeks after 6.3 - end of January
Currently they’re keeping all details a secret, with more to come in part 2, and if it’s okay for him to zone into the fight he will.

13.jpg

Players were trying to figure out when the next ultimate would happen, and Yoshi P mentioned that there were rumors about it releasing in 6.5, but they’re on schedule for it to release 6.3. It’s a tight schedule of course and they felt it would be tough for them but they made their deadline.

14.jpg

New Deep Dungeon 3. Eureka Orthos - Coming in 6.35

15.jpg

The dev team released Palace of the Dead in Heavensward and Heaven on High in Stormblood, and then decided to skip over making a new one for Shadowbringers. However, they didn’t realize just how much the community loved deep dungeon as much as they do, so they decided to add a new one.

They also mentioned that they’re aware of just how many players are challenging deep dungeon solo, and that there’s many who have soloed both deep dungeons on all jobs! Lovely shoutout to the deep dungeon community.

  • EO is unlocked by completing MSQ “Endwalker” and floor 50 of Palace of the Dead
  • Players with a job at level 81 or higher can enter.
  • Start from level 81 in the dungeon.
  • Rules and functionality are generally identical to prior DD’s but some new features will be included.

Duty support for level 60 Heavensward MSQ dungeons

  • This includes a redesign for The Aetherochemical Research Facility.
  • Adding in more and more duty support, with plans to add it for all dungeons in HW.

Job Adjustments (PvE/PvP)
Paladin rotation will be completely changed in 6.3, but otherwise not much in the way of large PvE changes. They asked for a bit more time before revealing what exactly those changes will look like as they’re still adjusting them. Expect more updates in the part 2 live letter.

PvP Adjustments
There will be some job adjustments in PvP, and changes for content like Rival Wings, so look forward to more information in the part 2 live letter.

  • Series 3 will begin
  • Season 5 begins
  • New CC arena

16.jpg

17.jpg

There was a lot of feedback from players that the Cloud map was the least popular and highly disliked by players. As such, they’ve decided to put it in the map rotation less frequently, but the exact rotation hasn’t been decided yet.

Crafting and Gathering Updates
Tool Enhancement Quests
Coming in 6.35. There’s going to be an interesting story involved with this one, so definitely don’t miss it.

18.jpg

New Custom Deliveries
Not much information on this one but they’re sure no one can guess who will involved in this questline.

19.jpg

Misc. crafting and gathering updates

  • Collectability values will be displayed when gathering collectables
  • Additions to the fish guide
  • New spearfishing area will be added to Upper La Noscea, the first to allow diving from the ARR regions

They’re also planning to add further updates in 6.4, such as placing outdoor furniture. Yoshi P asked for a bit more time for them to work on that before implementing it.

New Treasure Hunt Dungeon
The Shifting Gymnasion Agonon 
Accessible via a new Elpis-centric treasure map, which can only be accessed in the Elpis zone.

Gold Saucer Update
New course added for leap of faith. Yoshi P expressed a bit of uncertainty how this will work with the game’s updated collision system, so they may need to make some changes before implementing it.

Housing

  • Additional wards for all residential areas
  • 6 new wards and subdivisions
  • 1800 new plots per world
  • Planned for sale by lottery

UI Updates

  • Icons for damage type in the battle log and flying text
  • Buff/Debuff timers in party list

28.jpg

Misc Updates

  • A new UI theme which they can’t show today but will preview later.
  • Portraits will now display when using DF
  • 24 person content will only show your party member portraits
  • Expansion of actions available while using fashion accessories
  • Cast glamours and dye retainer equipment while using fashion accessories

      The latest Final Fantasy XIV Letter from the Producer Live Part LXXXI has revealed a new trailer, showcasing all the classes and their new Dawntrail actions, the new login screen, and more!
      The Live Letter kicked off with a really cool Job Actions trailer, which showcased all of the new job actions coming with Dawntrail across all classes. We recommend that you watch it if you haven't already!
      Let us also take a moment to appreciate Dawntrail's beautiful opening screen! The summer vibes are palpable, and the themed music could not be more fitting. When you first log into Dawntrail, you will truly feel as if a new adventure is about to begin!

      With every new expansion comes a bunch of new actions for each class, tailored to the increased level cap. The development team has also made adjustments in response to player feedback.
      A key focus has been to make sure that controller hotbars have ample space for all the new actions. This has led to the introduction of a new action change setting, offering you the choice to replace old actions with new ones as you see fit.

      Next, we are going to dive deep into each of the new actions. Keep in mind that this list isn't fully complete, so stay tuned for more updates:
      TANKS: 
      Adjustments to overall tank actions: Rampart and job-exclusive 30% damage reduction abilities will be upgraded in the 90s level range. Reprisal’s duration will be increased to 15 seconds in the 90s level range. Paladin: The second and third executions of atonement have been changed to new actions with separate animations. A new action that can be executed after Blade of Valor will be added. Warrior: New action, which can be executed after three executions of Fell Cleave or Decimate while Inner Release is active. New action that can be executed after Primal Rend. Dark Knight: Blood Weapon will upgrade into Delirium, and the effects of Blood Weapon will be added to Delirium in order to reduce the number of inputs during burst damage phases. New action can be executed after Living Shadow. Gunbreaker: New action that can be executed after Fated Circle (via Continuation). New three-step combo that can be executed after Bloodfest (with no cartridge cost). MELEE DPS:
      Adjustments to overall melee DPS actions: Second Wind’s healing potency will be increased in the 90s level range. Feint’s duration will be increased to 15 seconds in the 90s level range. Monk: Basic combo mechanics will no longer center around maintaining a buff or damage over time, but more about performing actions in a certain order to increase the next action’s potency. Can accumulate up to a total of ten chakras while Brotherhood is active (to prevent chakra overflow). Dragoon: Reduce positional requirements for the single-target combo; the fifth combo action has been changed to a new non-directional action, Drakesbane (Fang and Claw and Wheeling Thrust will change to Drakesbane, so input execution will remain the same). Life of the Dragon will be available without accumulating Dragon Gauge. To reduce the number of inputs during burst damage phases, certain actions will be removed or adjusted. Ninja: Huton’s effect has been moved to a trait and will always be active (it will be changed to an AoE attack that grants the effect of Hidden). Actions that extend the duration of Huton’s effect will be adjusted in accordance with the Huton modifications. Samurai: To simplify recast management, Tsubame-gaeshi will be changed to be executable after Meikyo Shisui. Hakaze, Tenka Goken, and Midare Setsugekka will be upgraded into new actions. Reaper: Plentiful Harvest’s effect will no longer increase the Shroud Gauge by 50 and instead will allow execution of Enshroud.  New action that can be executed while Enshrouded. Viper: Shifting between dual blade and double-bladed strikes. Re-awaken Boosted mode when the gauge is full: allows you to execute the double-bladed abilities. Close-range attacks as well as ranged attacks. Some buffs and debuffs will define which actions to use after.

Bard: Mage’s Ballad, Army’s Paeon, and the Wanderer’s Minuet will be changed into buffing actions that do not attack enemies. Pitch Perfect will be changed into an AoE attack for ease of use in encounters with multiple enemies. Procs attacks will be merged. Machinist: Barrel stabilizer will no longer increase the heat Gauge by 50 and instead will allow execution of Hypercharge. New trait that accumulates charges for Drill. Dancer: New action that can be executed after Flourish. Additional follow-up attacks. New action that consumes Esprit and can be executed after Technical Finish. Action granting standard steps without having to go through the dance. MAGICAL RANGE / CASTER DPS:

New AoE attack that can be executed after Chain Stratagem. Astrologian: The Card system will no longer be random and will instead simultaneously draw cards with offensive, defensive, and curative effects. Astrodyne will be removed in accordance with the discontinuation of astrosigns.

The team is dedicated to ensuring that all aspects of the game are polished and ready for launch. Addressing the recent DDoS attack, Yoshi-P confirmed that it was one of the most significant in terms of scale and duration since the start of FFXIV. The development team, in collaboration with external partners, has been actively implementing new strategies to safeguard players’ experiences. While the attack has caused frequent disconnections, Yoshi-P extends his apologies and emphasizes that no critical systems were compromised. The FFXIV team is doing the best they can to resolve all the issues as soon as possible.  PVP Update:  Viper and Pictomancer will be added in 7.0.  New PVP actions, adjustments, and map updates are planned for 7.1.

      During the recent Live Letter, Yoshi-P shared new details about the Fantasia potion! Find out what's new and what it means for your characters!
      With the release of Dawntrail, a new NPC will be introduced in Ul'dah to teach you what Fantasia is. The quest will be accessible to players of all levels and will reward a Fantasia Potion. The aim of this quest is to educate both new and veteran players about what Fantasia is and what it can do. Upon completion, players will gain access to a more advanced character creation system.
      After consuming a Fantasia Potion, you will have a 60-minute window to enter the game and return to the character creation screen for any necessary changes. This process can be repeated indefinitely within the 60-minute time frame, even when initially creating a character.
      This significant change allows you to fix any tiny differences that may not be true to your vision, especially when seen in different in-game environments.
      How excited are you about the new character creation feature? Let us know!
    • By Neviriah
      Following the release of the Dawntrail Benchmark, players reported that characters did not look as expected, among other issues. Yoshi-P has provided additional details regarding the changes that are being implemented.
      During the latest Live Letter, Yoshi-P gave an update on the upcoming benchmark improvements. Here is everything you need to know:
      Yoshi-P acknowledged that the character creation screen was not accurately represent how characters would appear in-game. The team is working hard to correct these differences and apply bug fixes so that the Benchmark matches what players will see in-game in Dawntrail. 
      Lighting Improvements and Changes:

      The team has revisited details such as the canine teeth for Miqo’te characters. Based on additional feedback, they are considering whether the teeth should appear longer or shorter. For face types 1 and 3, the canine teeth have been adjusted to look longer, while for face type 4, they will appear smaller.

      Addressing Other Racial Characteristics:
      Yoshi-P also informed us that they are rectifying issues with Lalafell’s ‘cursed’ teeth and other racial characteristics that have been brought to their attention.

      The benchmark software will soon be updated with these changes, around May 30th, to make sure that Dawntrail's quality meets the highest standards!
