The first major content patch following Final Fantasy XIV‘s Stormblood expansion will arrive in early October. Titled “The Legend Returns”, Patch 4.1 will include the continuation of the main scenario, an alliance raid featuring a “Return to Ivalice”, a new dungeon, housing in Shirogane, and more. We’ve got details on that here.
Today we get a look at some of the other new content we’ll see in Patch 4.1. Letter from the Producer Live XXIX will also air tomorrow at 4:00am Pacific Daylight Time and will further feature content in the upcoming update.
The Minstrel’s Ballad: Shinryu’s Domain
STORMBLOOD SPOILERS BELOW
“A god born of sorrow and despair. A man who lives only for death. As one they fought the Warrior of Light, and as one they fell. No words could do this titanic encounter justice…unless they come from the wandering minstrel, to whom no event is beyond improvement. As his nimble fingers pluck out the chords, his rich voice carries you to a place above the world, one that is at once familiar and foreign: Shinryu’s domain.”
PvP: Rival Wings
“On the forgotten fringes of the Dravanian Hinterlands, there lie the remnants of a Sharlayan testing site known as Astragalos. With their boundless ingenuity, the goblins of Idyllshire have transformed the place into an expansive training ground. Here, brave adventurers can take control of mighty machines in large-scale war games reminiscent of battles against the Garlean Empire. A furious struggle for territorial supremacy awaits!”
Still Further Hildibrand Adventures
“How depressingly dreary and plain existence is, in those brief interludes between the appearances of the larger-than-life inspector extraordinaire. Once more into the sky did he fly, and so once more did Nashu Mhakaracca set forth in search of her mentor─this time in the Far East. But hark, who lurks in yonder shadow, smelling faintly of cheese?”
Beast Tribe Quests – Blue Kojin
“Though divided into two factions, the Red and the Blue, all Kojin have labored since time immemorial to gather treasures they believe serve as vessels for the divine. The Red Kojin achieve this goal through violence, once serving as mercenaries for the Garlean Empire. With imperials now gone, however, they have chosen to take control of the treasure vault of the Kojin knowing full well their Blue brethren will not raise arms against them. Instead, the Blue Kojin now seek to create their own treasure vault. What hardships will they encounter in their endeavor to honor the divine?”
“Everyone’s favorite officer is looking for a few good adventurers to help her raise money for a good cause. Through regular contributions, Disciples of the Hand and Land will be able to strengthen their ties with M’naago and experience the story of the Resistance Widows and Orphans Fund.”
