New Alter Egos and Alter Ego Adjustments

Looking to further increase your repertoire of Trust npcs, or just wanting to tailor make a themed party to join you in battle? Square Enix will be introducing four new Alter Egos to assist you in just that! The powerful monk Zazarg, Aht Urhgan's monarch Nashmeira, the fiesty White Mage Cherukiki, and Adoulin's exorcist Ingrid, are all slated to be added in the upcoming March version update, lending their unique abilities to those that will have them!

Several new changes to the Trust system are also planned to be implemented, including a significant increase in battlefields that players can call them out, new dialogue options for each Alter Ego for various situations, and a new option to allow players to toggle on and off the ability to see the Alter Egos of other players!

Let us know what you think of these planned changes to the Trust system over on the ZAM forums!

From the official Final Fantasy XI forums:

    • Notes
      This command is intended to lower system usage by disabling the display of other players' alter egos. The following issues will occur, but they are an intended effect of using the command.
      • If a non-displayed alter ego casts a spell on your character, there will be no visual or log notification, but the appropriate status icon will display.
      • If players who have disabled the display of alter egos dismiss one from their parties, the visual effect thereof will not be displayed.
