Final Fantasy XIV Patch 4.1 Sightseeing Guide By Tony Garsow on October 9, 2017 at 11:54 PM

The first major content patch after Final Fantasy XIV‘s Stormblood expansion arrives on Tuesday, October 10th. Titled “The Legend Returns”, the patch will include a wealth of new content and features including the continuation of the main scenario, a return to Ivalice, new dungeon and trial, housing in Shirogane, and much more.

To see that you don’t miss a beat upon logging back into Eorzea, we’ve created a quick reference guide to unlock all the new content and point out some of the major features that have changed in what we call a “sightseeing guide.”

Check it out below!
