Final Fantasy XIV’s Patch 4.5 Special Site Gives us a Closer Look at Blue Mage and More!

Today, the special site for Final Fantasy XIV’s upcoming Patch 4.5, Requiem For Heroes, went live, giving us a closer look at some of the content that we can expect to see when the first part of this patch goes live next month.

Main Scenario Quests

War looms once again. Scarcely has Ala Mhigo taken its first breath of freedom when the Empire reaches out with ironclad fingers to reclaim the bloodied nation. Meanwhile, one after another, the Scions fall victim to an incurable slumber, leaving ever fewer of their number to contend with a rapidly disintegrating peace and the mystery of the voice which haunts them…

Blue Mage

The new images for Blue Mage provide us with a better look at the Blue Magic Spellbook, as well as our first detailed look into The Masked Carnivale duty and the rewards that we’ll earn.

A so-called mage of rather questionable character claims to have mastered an outlandish form of spellcasting that resembles neither black nor white magic during his voyage to the New World. Allegedly, anyone who purchases one of his soul crystals can learn to mimic the aetherial magicks of wild creatures. But can he be trusted, or is he merely a con artist looking to make a quick gil?

The Ghimlyt Dark

We’re given a nice background of the final MSQ dungeon of Stormblood and some new pictures, including the gear that we’ll be collecting.

For those who dare travel twixt Aldenard and Ilsabard, there is but one path, and it leads through Ghimlyt. A confluence of harsh terrain and aetheroclimatic conditions have shrouded the land in perpetual darkness, and it is here the decisive battle for Eorzea begins. But can the Warrior of Light prevail in this land long since lost to the light?

The upcoming Letter from the Producer LIVE on December 21st will provide us with more information on Patch 4.5. Stay tuned to Gamer Escape as we’ll be covering the stream, and discussing all of the details on our FFXIV Podcast Aetheryte Radio on Saturday, December 22nd at noon on Twitch.
