FFXIV Letter from the Producer Live LXIX: What’s to come in FFXIV Patch 6.1

These improvements will be detailed in the second half of the stream.

New content and dungeons

New Instance Dungeon

YoshiP explained the new dungeon is linked to the main story, so they want to keep the surprise so players don’t know where we’ll go next. That’s why the dungeon’s name is a secret for now.

New Trial: The Endsinger’s Aria

YoshiP said they’re done balancing the Trial, he played and cleared it himself too. The trial is pretty difficult, but it’s hard to balance them at this point because if you made it any easier then it wouldn’t fit with the story elements. Story-wise this is supposed to be difficult.

Level 90 content: New Unreal Trial Ultima’s Bane

YoshiP explained in the past you could clear this even if you ignored some of the gimmicks, but that won’t be the case anymore now. They tried to keep the same feel as before too for the response time.

New Alliance Raid: Myth of the Realm #1

A single screenshot was shared:

YoshiP said the screenshot is vague on purpose. They could have shown another one that’s more explicit and it’d reveal too much.

New Ultimate Duty in Patch 6.11, Dragonsong’s Reprise

Three screenshots were shared:

YoshiP: “We’ve tried to take your feedback into account as much as possible for these changes. we’ll detail the Job Adjustments on the next Producer Live”.

FFXIV PvP update in 6.1

YoshiP: “The new PvP rewards system will be explained on the next Producer Live.”

New Custom Deliveries coming in 6.15

You’ll be able to change Ameliance’s outfit into a butler’s too.

Ishgard Housing

Adventurer Plates: A new way to introduce yourself and Roleplay in FFXIV

These are character cards basically. A new way to introduce yourself to other players. You’ll be able to heavily customize them and even show a different Job or two Jobs depending on the situation.

YoshiP said they’re getting carried away with this system and are adding so much customization it’s still in dev and they can’t show an example today. It’ll be particularly nice for those into RP.

The Unending Codex

YoshiP said they’re adding this because 6.0 was a big turn and end of the arc so far. This way players will be able to easily remember and check the stories of all the past characters. Players who skip the story could still check some info on the characters too. And lastly, seeing the game has been ongoing for 10 years, there’s a lot of background story to remember. So these will work as lore memo notes.

Data Center Travel release patch confirmed: Patch 6.18

Miscellaneous updates including new Viera hairstyles

YoshiP: We only wrote Hrothgar on the slide but we’re preparing Viera new hairstyles too.

New Dream Fitting feature to preview FFXIV Online Store items

You can now preview the outfits and cosmetics buyable in Mog Station. You can only use the new Dream Fitting feature when sleeping at inns. YoshiP didn’t want to include an NPC in each city that would let you preview the outfits because it’d break immersion and the worldbuilding.

That’s when the first half of the Producer Live Part LXIX stream ended. They showed the Bahamut projection from five years ago during break time. YoshiP shared some anecdotes about it and mentioned it cost Square Enix tons of money back then. It was also his first time getting interviewed on TV, so he was really nervous and stuttered. YoshiP: “That was five years ago but it feels so long ago with how the world changed now, but I’m sure we’ll be able to go back to these times one day”.
