A New Batch of Images Released Ahead of Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.1

Today Square Enix released a batch of new images showcasing some of the additions that are coming to Patch 5.1 for Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers next Tuesday, October 29th.

If you haven’t already, make sure to read up (or listen up) on last weeks Letter from the Producer LIVE that went in depth on many of the adjustments coming to the game.

Alliance Raid Dungeon
YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse
The Copied Factory

Machina indistinguishable from men in appearance, speech, demeanor─anyone in Norvrandt would dismiss such an idea as the fantastical ramblings of drunken dwarves. The discovery of a white clad woman identifying herself as an “android,” however, may call everything that has long been believed about technology into question…

The Minstrel’s Ballad: Hades’s Elegy

Hearken unto a requiem for a hero fallen. A man who lived a thousand thousand of our lives clinging desperately to faint hope, never shirking his sworn duty to his long lost brethren. A man who stood proud and did avow his true name on the threshold of the battle that would see him fall to his rival─the light to quench his shadow. Borrowing liberally from the unereal rites of the Night’s Blessed, the minstrelling wanderer weaves an elegy in that hero’s honor─the tragic yet triumphant tale of a man and a battle that ne’er shall be forgotten.

The Epic of Alexander (Ultimate)

The clockwork fortress that manifested itself in the far reaches of snow swept Dravania did bear an uncanny resemblance to the great steel giant sung of in the legends of the Hotgo , an Auri tribe hailing from far across the sea. Inspired by this tragic tale of a mechanical god who placed his trust in a single mortal soul, the minstrelling wanderer spreads the proverbial wings of imagination and take flight, weaving an impassioned ballad of hope and despair profound.

Blue Mage Update

Since last you met, Martyn has been striving to further the interests of the fledgling Blue Mages’ Guild. Not only has he uncovered a wealth of powerful spells for you to master, he has also arranged for groups exclusively comprised of blue mages to journey into perilous territory to test the limits of their abilities.

Frontline PvP
Onsal Hakair (Danshig Naadam)

The Xaela of the Azim Steppe are renowned for their ferocity in battle, a traditional preoccupation that culminates once each Tsagaan Sar as they clash to earn the right to rule in the Naadam . Such infrequent conflict is insufficient to sate the Steppe’s most zealous warriors, however, thus the Danshig Nadaam─smaller contests to which the Grand Companies of Eorzea have now been welcomed. Join forces with the Maelstrom and the Orben people, the Adders and the Ejinn , or the Flames and the Horo in this grand demonstration of martial prowess, and may the mightiest prevail!

Ishgard Restoration

With the Dragonsong War brought to its conclusion, the Houses of Lords and Commons have approved large scale reconstruction works aimed at revitalizing the Holy See of Ishgard . The principle site for the project is the Firmament district, which sustained extensive damage during the millennium long conflict. Appointed overseer of this endeavor is the young Lord Francel of House Haillenarte , who now seeks able and willing artisans the realm over to contribute to this great and noble cause.

Performance Update

For budding musicians who want to form their own band, the new ensemble mode makes it easier to synchronize with party members, while Performance Assistance shows you how to play a number of fan favorite songs. There is even a host of brand new instruments to try!

New Mounts

Be it by land, sky, or sea, these new mounts will take you where you need to go.
