Event
A new quest has been added.
Quest Required Level and Location
Marvelously Mutable Materia Level 19
Central Thanalan (X:23 Y:14)
NPC: Kokosamu

The strength of the Echo granted in the Binding Coil of Bahamut has been increased.

The Echo will take effect upon entering the Binding Coil of Bahamut, increasing players’ maximum HP, damage dealt, and healing magic potency by 15%.
* Unlike other instances, the strength of the Echo will not increase upon total party incapacitation.
* The Echo will not be applied in Turn 3.
* The strength of the Echo is scheduled to be increased two weeks after the release of patch 2.25.

The Tidal Wave Shield and Tidal Wave Buckler have been added as rewards to The Whorleater (Extreme).

Players who have already used a Mirror of the Whorl to upgrade a wave shield or wave buckler prior to patch 2.25 will be compensated with an additional Mirror of the Whorl.
* These mirrors will be distributed via the moogle delivery service after the release of patch 2.25.

Players who have completed the quest “A Relic Reborn” in Version 1.0 can unlock the Hydra and Dhorme Chimera trials at the following locations:

  • A Relic Reborn: The Chimera – Coerthas Central Highlands (X:32 Y:7)
  • A Relic Reborn: The Hydra – Eastern Thanalan (X:14 Y:30)

Ventures have been added as rewards for treasure hunting.

The number of seeds obtained through intercrossing when using Shroud Topsoil has been adjusted.
This adjustment is intended to ensure balance with the number of seeds received when intercrossing using Shroud Topsoil in comparison to Thanalan Topsoil.

A system message will be displayed when Challenge Log entries near completion.
