Even though Final Fantasy 14’s servers are down for a day as I write this, Square Enix put out the patch notes for version 6.38 a day early. The notes talk about some changes to Final Fantasy 14’s PvP balance, as well as a change to how to raid loot is given out and some bug fixes.
The long maintenance period for Final Fantasy 14 is because some server upgrades are happening in North American data centers. The equipment on the servers in the Aether, Primal, Crystal, and Dynamis data centers will be changed.
This is to make sure that the critically acclaimed MMORPG A Realm Reborn will be supported for a long time after its tenth anniversary. Square Enix talked about what players can expect once the servers are back up and running earlier today.
Do you know that the Sun Squad Collection Event will run from March 28 to April 11 in Apex Legends? During that time, you can get 24 cosmetics that will only be available for a short time. Check out the patch notes for the Apex Legends update below if you want to know everything about it:
Final Fantasy 14 Patch 6.38 will be live tomorrow, April 4. According to the Final Fantasy 14 update 6.38 patch notes from Square Enix, players who take part in Pandaemonium: Abyssos raids on Savage difficulty will no longer have to worry about loot lockouts, and there will always be two chests after a fight is over.
Seven months had passed since Pandaemonium: Abyssos (Savage), which was part of the Patch 6.2 series, was released. Also, players can jump right into any Pandaemonium: Abyssos raid tier instance without having to clear any prerequisites during the week.
Players can now get as many Unsung Blades of Abyssos as they want from The Eighth Circle on normal difficulty. These can be traded in for weapons with an item level of 620. In PvP, jobs like ninja, warrior, and paladin had some of their abilities weakened, while jobs like a black mage, reaper, and dancer had their utility kits slightly improved.
But Patch 6.4, another big update for Final Fantasy 14, will be out by the end of next month. Titled The Dark Throne, the next update will include Anabaseios, the final tier of the Pandaemonium raid series, in addition to new main story quests and more job adjustments. The only way to know which jobs will change in the near future is to wait and see.
Even though Patch 6.38 has less content than Patch 6.35, Savage raiders and PvP players will still have things to do in Final Fantasy 14 before the next big update. But it’s still too early to tell what the server upgrades will do for players right away once the game is back online. Final Fantasy 14 is now out for PS4, PS5, and PC.
