The next version update is scheduled to land in late June.

This update will not only see the climactic conclusions to some of Adoulin's questlines, but also the addition of new high-tier avatar battlefields.

In addition, plenty of job and ability adjustment in store, along with rank 5 monster rearing, style lock enabled for ranged weapons, and a plethora of other additions and adjustments.

Keep a look out for more details as the June version update approaches!

Every single BCNM area with a hard-mode battle added to it has had a home point placed outside of it so far, so I imagine Full Moon Fountain won't be an exception.

That's specifically why I'm hoping for it. It's a pain having to run through that zone to get to Fenrir. I'm slightly surprised that Waking Dreams already has one here, but then, that's used for CoP missions, too, where Full Moon Fountain isn't. Would shave about 8 minutes off my daily routine.

Also, they should have canned the oversensitive forum censor along with the various admins that were let go :<

That's pretty cool but is that going to make Lu Shang EX? The only thing it has going for it now is that it's tradable.

Presumably it would, because I can't see the lightsabers being tradeable. I actually need to get my Lu Shang rod back from a friend, because I needs them both >_>

If they're feeling really generous, the Lu Shang quest will actually give you another (untradeable) rod, but somehow I don't see that happening either.

June Version Update Announcement

Greetings, adventurers.
Matsui here.

The June version update is right around the corner, but I would like to share an early overview of what will be implemented.

Starting off, we’ll be adding high-tier battlefields for three avatars: Fenrir, Carbuncle, and Diabolos, so look forward to challenging enhanced versions of these familiar creatures once more.

New notorious monsters will be added to Wanted. With new and bigger foes to vanquish, now's a great time to get involved with Unity!

Several Seekers of Adoulin quests will also reach their conclusions this patch, and players will be able to enjoy a bevy of lore, battles, and rewards.

Furthermore, we’ll be implementing new aspects to fishing that are geared towards veteran anglers that possess the Ebisu Fishing Rod and Lu Shang’s Fishing Rod.
A duo of quests provide upgrades to these two special rods, complete with all-new visual effects. Take on the challenges and reap your just rewards!

Mog Gardens will also undergo changes as we unlock rank 5 for monster rearing, which will add new monsters and also increase the number of monsters you can simultaneously rear.

We’ll also be making job adjustments, adding new alter egos, implementing an emote for sitting on chairs, setting an NPC that will allow you to check what you’ve fished up, addressing the ranged weapon slot for the lockstyle feature, and much more!

I hope you are all looking forward to the June version update, which goes live on Thursday, June 25.

I'm liking that. Maybe I just never found it, but is there a way to turn this feature off entirely? I'm not sure why they felt it was needed, but to me at least, it is nothing but annoyance.

No, you're not the only one, and no, as far as I can tell there is currently no way to disable it (hence why they are adding this command)

When I first saw it I thought it was a glitch, because at first there was no mention of it in the May patch notes (it was an oversight and was added in the notes later)

The reason it was added, apparently, was to better be able to tell what targets would be hit in the case of using an AoE ability.
