      Players from all across the world have responded to the recently released Dawntrail benchmark, with both positive and negative feedback. This led Yoshi-P to address the issues and provide additional information. Here is what you need to know!
      Character Creation System Concerns:
      Yoshi-P said that the character creation system in the Benchmark, created over ten years ago, is still based on "A Realm Reborn." While it employs the same processes as the actual game, certain aspects, such as weather, were combined to create conditions unique to character creation. These were based on the texture resolutions and shaders of the standard quality at the time of ARR, including the PS3 version. Unfortunately, this approach did not adequately showcase the upcoming graphical update.
      Moreover, Yoshi-P acknowledges that updating the character creation environment was overlooked due to the prioritization of Dawntrail's development and extends his sincere apologies.
      Upcoming Improvements:
      The FFXIV team is currently reworking the environment and light sources for character creation in both the actual game and the benchmark. Once completed, the benchmark will be updated, and the following issues will be addressed:
      "Lifeless" eyes due to a lack of highlights in the pupils. Facial contours appearing flattened due to incorrect lighting conditions caused by backlighting. A lack of gloss or excessive appearance of gloss due to character creation-exclusive weather conditions (i.e. the use of thunderclouds). Additional Issues:
      Players have also identified issues related to specific data and processes. Yoshi-P assures that these are being addressed during the finalization of Dawntrail’s development. However, these issues will remain in the Benchmark due to data-related errors, including:
      An issue with unimplemented high-resolution textures, including those for certain playable races. An issue pertaining to special data processes. An issue with necklines for playable races under certain circumstances. An issue with uncorrected scaling for the mouth of certain playable races Yoshi-P asks for players' patience as the team works to resolve these issues, which will be corrected for Dawntrail's release.
      Benchmark Replacement:
      As stated, the Dawntrail benchmark will be replaced once the issues are resolved. Further information on the benchmark's replacement will be released in the future. 
      The FFXIV team is actively incorporating player feedback to refine Dawntrail's release version, so please continue to share your thoughts across various social media platforms!
      If you want to read Yoshi-P's full statement, head here: An Update on the Dawntrail Official Benchmark
      And if you have not done so yet, we recommend you download the official benchmark software to ensure your PC is ready for launch!

      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:

      Over 30 Million Players worldwide have become Warriors of Light. A total of 159 hours of cutscenes. 4.917 Minutes of amazing Music. 16.096 tons of Materia melded in the past year, an amount equal to the world's total platinum reserves! 46.152 km of corks fired in-game from bottles of Realm Reborn Red in the past year, a distance surpassing the Earth's circumference!
      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.
