In the lead up to next week’s release of Final Fantasy XIV Patch 3.2, Square Enix has released a bunch of new screenshots and information detailing some of the ins and outs of “The Gears of Change.” Today’s update focuses on Sephirot, the Fiend, whom players will have a chance to fight in both Hard and Extreme Mode versions.
Other screenshots show off the new PvP mode “The Feast” as well as the new Mentor System aimed at helping players support other players throughout their adventures.
Sephirot – Containment Bay S1T7
Sephirot, the Fiend, was a deity once worshiped by a tree-like race native to Meracydia. Brought into being for the sole purpose of repelling the Allagan invasion, Sephirot inflicted ruinous losses upon the imperial army before finally being subdued and imprisoned in the central facility of Azys Lla. And now, millennia later, this immensely powerful entity threatens to awaken, his vengeful dreams disturbed by the careless ambitions of Archbishop Thordan VII. Topple the first pillar of the Warring Triad, or wheresoever his colossal shadow falls shall be visited by unthinkable catastrophe!
Wolves’ Den – The Feast
The table is set, and the wolves gather for the Feast! Will you gorge on the flesh of your foes, or find yourself served on a platter? Only the most savage of beasts are invited to this banquet – you’ll need fangs of steel and an endless thirst for blood! Wait not for the tolling of the culling bell! Devour your rivals, take their hides for trophies, and build a hunter’s throne from their bones!
Hall of the Novice
Fledgling adventurers eager to learn the basics of combat need look no further. Here you can undertake a number of training exercises that explain terminology and fundamentals essential to party play.
Seasoned heroes of Eorzea now have the means to better aid newly come adventurers. With an exclusive chat channel known as the “Novice Network” reserved for new adventurers and mentors, imparting advice to the beginners has never been easier.
New hair trends are making their way to Eorzea. Patch 3.2 will introduce several unisex hairstyles including a new ponytail and a rugged, short haircut!
Housing – Orchestrion and Airship Painting
This new furnishing lets you change the music in your estate. Collect all the orchestrion rolls and enjoy your favorite songs in the comfort of your own home. From the forecastle to the rigging to the hull to the aftcastle, paint your airship parts and add a personal touch to your vessel.
Players will be able to get their hands on new gear obtained through the purchase of Allagan Tomestones of Lore or through the new raid tier with the launch of Patch 3.2, set to go live on February 23rd.
