FFXIV PLL #75 Recap - 6.3 Live Letter Part 2

Hello everyone! Welcome to the recap of Patch 6.3 live letter part 2.

Video recap can be viewed here:

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

On Friday December 23rd, part two of the 6.3 live letter was held, revealing new information about what’s in store for us.

Yoshi P starts the PLL by mentioning how tight it was for them to deliver patch 6.3 on schedule. Many difficulties for the dev team to overcome in delivering this patch. They talk about quickly selling out tickets for the Eorzean symphony, and while it was difficult to manage in the current climate they were glad to be able to have it.

Patch 6.3’s name is “Gods Revel, Lands Tremble” and will be released on January 10th.


Content to come in 6.3

2 Ulti tease.png

  • Release two weeks after patch 6.3

Deep Dungeon 3 - Eureka Orthos

  • Must complete the MSQ “Endwalker” and progress to floor 50 of palace of the dead
  • If you’ve done any palace of the dead you will understand what kind of content this is
  • The bosses coming in Eureka will be much more like regular bosses compared to in Heaven on High - maybe this means more mechanics?

Island Sanctuary Updates

  • New ways to sort through the UI to figure out what's best to queue in the workshop
  • Can view factors like popularity and supply while setting agenda

6 Island UI.png

7 Island UI.png

Treasure hunt update

  • New dungeon only appears in Elpis.

Housing update 

  • additional 6 regular wards and 6 subdivisions per world - available for purchase via the lottery system. In newer servers with houses still available currently, the wards will not be added just yet. Look for the lodestone post to come to see which will be available to private buyers and free companies

UI improvements

  • Icons for damage type in battle log and flying text. Up until patch 6.3 there is a lot of content, and they want to make sure to get all of this info up to date with this information - please let them know if they miss anything or make an error!
  • Display remaining time for buffs / debuffs in the party list

Miscellaneous Updates

  • Alternative UI theme Clear Blue

15 clear blue UI.png

  • Portraits will now display when using the duty finder - alliance raids will show your 8 person party only. Don’t forget to set it so that you’re not the only one with the default portrait!
  • Expansion of activities available while using fashion accessories. Some parts of it will be customized - certain parts may be able to be turned on or off. More emotes will be able to be used and potentially usable while mounted.
  • Ability to automatically open an umbrella when rain is detected. They wanted to represent the feeling similar to real life - if it’s raining you pull out your umbrella
  • Ability to collectively entrust duplicates of stackable items to your retainer
  • Export from portraits editor to adventurer plate and vice versa


Job Adjustments

General adjustments

  • There will be adjustments to usability for certain actions - this will be explained when the patch releases


  • Significant adjustments extending to action rotations.
  • For everyone who mains Paladin, the rotation has changed a lot - they apologize.
  • Adjustment Objectives:
    • Improve ability to deal burst damage, because of PLD's reliance on DoT damage, they don’t have as much burst - they will try to damage over time into burst damage.
    • Paladin's defensive abilities compared to other tanks are quite difficult to use, so they are trying to alleviate some of that difficulty.

Main adjustments (not all of them just the biggest ones):

  • Rotation has been shortened to accommodate high powered actions.
  • Damage over time effects for Goring Blade and Blade of Valor was removed and their potency was adjusted.
  • Divine Might is now applied after weaponskill combos, allowing an enhanced holy spirit to be executed once without casting.
  • Holy Shelltron’s effect has been changed to reduce damage taken, enhancing defensive capabilities against DoT.
  • Previously removed bulwark ability has been revamped and reintroduced, offering increased defensive capability.
  • This is just a general overview as they are continuing to work on Paladin and will be until the patch releases.


Demonstrates the new CC arena, showing teleporting doors. There are environmental effects reminiscent of Eden’s promise 1 tiles.

Alliance Raid - Euphrosyne

We follow G’raha Tia through the fields. They marvel at the environment changing, and question what G’raha is doing with his strange instrument.

17 AR.png

18 AR.png

They feel that the development team has been doing a great job recently. The work that has been done is particularly impressive. Many of the environments and designs are going to be unique to what we’ve seen so far in xiv. People seemed to have a lot of fun with the first alliance raid, they look forward to expanding on the lore and there are many new mechanics to show off in the new fights! Yoshi P mentions the third fight in particular is his favorite.

Alliance raid armor sets:

New Treasure Dungeon - The Shifting Gymnasium Agonon

New Leap of Faith course
A pretty jumping course in the treetops. Be careful or you will fall! Collect the medals in the same way as in previous iterations. Yoshi P struggles through the course and marvels at how well some players do at these courses.

Deep Dungeon 3 - Eureka Orthos

38 DD3.png
Deep dungeon Overview - What is deep dungeon?

  • Must be level 81 or above to enter
  • Entry for 1-4 players no role restrictions, difficulty unaffected by party size
  • To unlock, accept quest from “Koh Rabntah” in Mor Dhona to unlock, with the addition of this quest previous quests associated with Koh Rabntah will be removed.
  • Going in looks the same as with previous Deep dungeons, with the familiar two save files.
  • Yoshida talks through some of the basics and fights a few monsters, explaining features like aetherpool, pomanders, traps.
  • Because of the randomization, it's a different challenge every time you enter

39 DD3.png

Yoshi P briefly fights the floor 10 boss, an allagan-looking Korrigan, with various mechanics related to parts of the floor.

41 DD3 boss.png

Yoshi P showcases a new pomander, dreadnought, a transformation pomander with 2 abilities, one similar to the "rage" pomander in PotD (one shots enemies and knocks them back) and the other similar to the "lust" pomander (applies a stacking debuff on enemies). 

42 DD3 Dreadnaught.png

He also used EO's replacement for magicite: a Demiclone that follows and helps the player fight enemies on the current floor. It disappears after the player moves to the next floor.

43 DD3 Demiclone.png


New items available in 6.3

New short hair style will be available, most likely from EO.

New mounts. A new gold saucer mount and what seemed to be expensive gilded mounts, perhaps purchasable for a large sum of gil.

New way to transfer items between retainer and inventory

Yoshi P shows the new UI interactions with retainers, including selecting all types of items you want to mass transfer onto the retainer - for stackable items only at the moment. He further explained the loading bar was required while communication between the client and database occurred.

      In an extraordinary feat of skill and determination, a group of just six players has successfully cleared the Unending Coil of Bahamut raid of FFXIV in Ultimate difficulty!
      Did you know it is possible to clear an ultimate fight with fewer than 8 players? Well, Twitch streamer Serenaya Carrin and teammates have achieved just that! They successfully cleared The Unending Coil of Bahamut (Ultimate) Raid in Final Fantasy XIV with only a party of six!
      This challenging raid, also known as UCoB, is considered one of the most difficult encounters in the game.
      Placeholder for tweet 1794792245926985763 Ultimates are among the last challenges you can face in FFXIV after clearing every Savage Raid. UCoB (the Ultimate Coil of Bahamut) was introduced during Stormblood and is based on the Coil of Bahamut raid series from A Realm Reborn. Clearing an ultimate fight, even with a full party, represents a significant challenge for almost any FFXIV player. However, achieving it with only a party of six is truly an accomplishment that Serenaya and the group can be proud of!
      If you would like to watch the full battle, you can find a recording of the 6-man fight below.
      And for those of you familiar with Final Fantasy XIV raiding, you can also review the logs here: Bahamut Prime
      Congratulations again to the team for this amazing achievement! 
      For those with experience in ultimate challenges, what do you think about clearing it with less than 8 players? Which ultimate fight would be the hardest to clear, in your opinion?

      The event will feature a number of Fall Guys-inspired obstacle courses in FFXIV's Gold Saucer. To join the event, you will have to seek out a Well-heeled Youth NPC in Ul'dah and accept the quest named "It Could Happen to You".

      After both quests are completed, you will then be able to join new Gold Saucer activities in which you can earn Manderville Gold Saucer Fame points (MGF).
      After collecting multiple MGF, head to Blunderville Square and exchange them for some cool prizes, such as:
      Gentlebean Glamour attire Winner’s Crowns Rhiyes Identification Key Pink Bean And More!

      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:
      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.
      *We will be providing you with an in-depth guide on the Viper's abilities soon!
      RANGE DPS:
      Adjustments to overall Ranged DPS actions: Second wind’s healing potency will be increased in the 90s level range. Damage reduction of job-exclusive defensive abilities will be increased to 15% in the 90s level range. 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:
      Adjustments to overall Magical DPS actions: Swiftcast recast will be reduced to 40 seconds in the 90s level range. Addle’s duration will be increased to 15 seconds in the 90s level range. Black Mage: Adjustments to streamline certain aspects of the job, such as restoring MP upon landing ice spells while Umbral Ice is active, instead of passively over time. New action which repositions Ley Lines beneath the caster. Summoner: Solar Bahamut: a new summon akin to Bahamut and Phoenix. New action that can be executed after Searing Light. Skill rotation updated based on the new Summon: Solar Bahamut - Bahamut - Solar Bahamut - Phoenix. Resurrection stays for 7.x, but 8.0 may remove raise from the Summoner skill set. Red Mage: Manafication will no longer increase Black Mana and White Mana by 50, and will instead allow the execution of enchanted swordplay actions without cost. The AoE enchanted swordplay combo beginning with Enchante Moulinet will now consume a total of 50 Black Mana and white Mana, similar to its single-target counterpart. Pictomancer: Prepares by painting a variety of motifs, then renders them to life to produce an assortment of effects. Renders multiple motifs to execute high-powered attacks. Grants buffs to the party and self. Creature, Weapon and Landscape motifs: Pompom, Weapon and Landscape in the hotbar will create their respective motifs. Ability to change the palette's elements.
      *We will be providing you with an in-depth guide on the Pictomancer's abilities soon!
      Adjustments to overall Healer actions: Swiftcast’s recast will be reduced to 40 seconds in the 90s level range. White Mage: New action allowing the caster to quickly move forward. New AoE attack, which can be executed up to three times after Presence of Mind. Scholar: Seraphism: a new action that changes the caster’s appearance and enhances healing magicks. 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. Sage: Eukrasia will now enhance Dyskrasia II into Eukrasian Dyskrasia and AoE attacks, which deal damage over time to enemies within range. New party Buff which heals nearby party members whenever the caster casts a spell. Additional Updates on Dawntrail's Progress, Security Measures, and more:
      Yoshi-P has reassured fans that the development of Dawntrail is progressing smoothly and that its release is on schedule. 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!
