Today the site for Final Fantasy XIV‘s Patch 5.2: Echoes of a Fallen Star was updated with new images showing off some of the updates coming next week on February 18.
Driven from their ancestral home during the Flood and forced to live in exile for a hundred years, a bewhiskered tribe of scribes and scriveners makes their triumphant return to the Rak’tika Greatwood. Heed the call of the guardian of ancient Ronka and probe long-forsaken subterranean hollows, that these stewards of lost knowledge might reclaim their legacy.
Under the watchful eye of Francel de Haillenarte, the reconstruction of the Firmament enters its second phase, which shall see works carried out on the residential quarter. Once thrumming with life, the area has long lain in silent ruin, but by the combined efforts of artisans from near and far, it shall rise from the rubble once more to welcome Ishgardians home!
The sea is vast and fathomless, teeming with creatures no man or woman has laid eyes upon. The Fishermen’s Guild cannot let this stand, and has built the Endeavor to unveil nature’s hidden bounty. Captain Foerzagyl seeks able fishers willing to brave the unknown, and welcomes any with a rod in their hand and adventure in their heart.
