Announcing the March Version Update
Spring greetings to you, adventurers!
Matsui here with your March version update rundown.
For many Japanese companies, March is the end of the fiscal year, when we say goodbye to one year of hard work and look forward to the next.
The ultimate version update of fiscal 2018 brings with it the ultimate area of Dynamis – Divergence: Jeuno! I’m sure the arithmetically inclined of you are wondering how we can only have four Dynamis – Divergence areas when there are five pieces of relic gear to reforge. In Jeuno, you can find items to reforge leg gear, while those for the remaining chest pieces, well...there are notorious monsters all over Dynamis – Divergence, right? Spoils for Dynamis have always varied by job, so you can probably figure things out from there.
Another cause for celebration is that March marks the twenty-fourth incarnation of Ambuscade—that’s right, we’ve had two full years’ worth of Ambuscades. Last year we had a battle against shadows, whereas this year we’ve gone with a fuzzier approach. Hey, what’s that moogle doing in the banner up there?
Finally, we’d like to thank everyone who provided us with feedback about the Escutcheon questline. Of particular interest to us were the discussions about spheres, which we used to guide us toward several adjustments coming your way in March. Among these changes is an increase to the minimum amount of spheres produced during the Escutcheon-creating process. Keep an eye out for the version update notes for details!
Below is the usual table of items we have lined up for March. As always, last-minute issues may arise that cause us to push some of them off to a future version update.
