Announcing the November Version Update
A fine day to you, adventurers! Matsui here to provide you with some tidbits of information about the upcoming version update, scheduled for Thursday, November 10.
We’ve got a couple of job adjustments on top, included some adjustments to summoner blood pacts, and a review of the hand-to-hand weapon damage calculation formula. These changes include an increase to physical blood pact attribute caps and increase maximum hand-to-hand damage, providing further strengths to damage-dealing capabilities. We’ve also got several adjustments to the Smite job trait.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a version update without new foes and rewards for Ambuscade, and we hope you enjoy tackling the new challenges on offer in November.
In terms of quality-of-life improvements, we’ve added some teleportation locations for survival guides and home points, a topic that has been of some debate on the official forums. These additions will make traveling throughout Vana’diel even easier, so take this opportunity to explore the world!
November also brings along with it XI Day (11/11), and we’ve got a special anniversary event complete with rewards boasting all-new graphics. We’d like for as many people to experience this event as possible, so we’re also hosting a Return Home to Vana’diel Campaign—bring your friends back to XI and enjoy spending time together! This campaign brings along with it a plethora of other mini-campaigns and events, the details of which we will make available at a later date.
