weird that they got Ardbert at the bottom in the screenshots. inb4 Ardbert is our voice of conscience from now on.
Pumpkin Season hits FFXIV and Patch 5.1 going live in late October
The first big content patch for Final Fantasy XIVs since the launch of Shadowbringers is soon upon us. After the main story of the initial release has concluded, there have been many who have been eagerly awaiting a continuation of our adventures in the First.
Of course, we will now continue our adventure in a new Main Scenario questline and will see what dark forces threaten yet again to unravel all our hard work. Poor Warrior of Light. Busy as always.
A new Dungeon "The Grand Cosmos" will be added. A once beautiful castle now inhabited by a mage who is not very fond of anyone disturbing their solitude. We do it anyway – for that fancy new gearset, of course.
New Game+ will be available with this patch as well! The entirety of Heavensward, Stormblood and Shadowbringers will be replayable without the need of creating a new character now. A Real Reborn will likely be added in the future. Relive your favourite memories, bother NPCs you missed to take screenshots of in gpose – visit a certain dungeon every few weeks to cry yet again, because you can still not come to terms with your feelings since 2015…
Also a fun new feature for everyone who enjoys socializing in FFXIV is the new “Fellowships” system! No, you do not have to undertake an arduous trek to a huge volcano to throw a ring into, but you can make friends all over your server. You can create groups up to 1000 players and join up to 10 of them in a similar fashion to guilds! Create RP Fellowships, Fellowships for art, housing, carving pumpkins or make a Fellowship for hunts with other enthusiastic players who will lend you their sword, bow and astral globe!
The patch will also introduce wards 19-21 (including subdivisions) to all four residential districts! So get spam clicking on that sale board and good luck!
But first, we dust off our magical flying brooms as All Saints' Wake is starting next week.
The event, as always, comes with a little story to enjoy. By completing the story and trading in collectables from the event quests, you can earn some positivly horrifying rewards this year:
This time you can exchange rewards at the All Saints' Wake vendor in Old Gridania for an item called the “Circus Resonator”. It will summon your own personal candy corn orange Circus Ahriman from the void, who wears an even spookier hat! Isn’t he frightfully fashionable?
The second item will probably make a lot of housing fans burst into jovial shrieks. The outdoor decorative item “Pumpkin Carriage” will take everyone on a very motionless ride through their own backyards. I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend my evening, than gposing with friends in a huge unmoving pumpkin with wheels while waiting for the queue to pop at unholy times in the night.
All Saints’ Wake will start on October 17th and will make the time players wait for the new content patch to arrive a little sweeter.
