The October Version Update is Here!

25 Oct 2011

The FINAL FANTASY XI team has implemented new BCNM battlefields, Voidwatch adjustments, and other improvements to Vana’diel just in time for Halloween!

Read on for the details.


  • Voidwatch has undergone the following revisions:
    • The planar rift on the second floor of Delkfutt’s Tower is now located at F-5 instead of J-5.
    • It is now possible for players to fulfill victory conditions even if they find themselves disconnected when the enemy is defeated. This can be accomplished by examining the accompanying riftworn pyxis upon reconnecting.


  • [dev1030] New Battlefields
    New Burning Circle Notorious Monster (BCNM) battlefields have been added.
