The Scourge of the Land deigns to touch down in Kamihr Drifts, Adoulin is all up in arms over the sudden absence of Minister Melvien, and a personage of questionable origin appears before the princess.

Steel yourself for all the action set to emerge from the jungle!

 

From the official Final Fantasy XI forums:

Matsui here.
I'd like to give you all a preview of the content slated for the May version update.

There are some big developments in store with the May version update regarding the "Seekers of Adoulin" missions. Certain mysteries that have previously shrouded Ulbuka and the Sacred City of Adoulin will be lifted, while others will spring up in their place. Stay tuned, as there is a considerable amount of material to savor, including the fleshing out of some more marginalized characters, and the introduction of new mission-related areas.

Also, in response to feedback from everyone on the job point system introduced in March, we've tinkered with what made obtaining capacity points too difficult. It will also be easier than before to earn capacity points by participating in skirmishes and Delve, so we sincerely hope you will enjoy them as non item-level growth elements.

In order to further support solo players, we will be raising the Fellow level cap to 99 and having their levels increase depending on item levels. We also plan to expand the Adoulin areas in which you can call forth your Fellow, so please look forward to that as well.

There's much more on the docket, such as the introduction of the Mog Wardrobe, the much-awaited addition of meals that increase pet accuracy by around 110 points, and the inclusion of mythic-equivalent weapons for geomancers and rune fencers.

The version update is scheduled to be implemented on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

Among the items scheduled for implementation with this version update, there are still some that are currently in testing. Please keep in mind that we may remove certain items from this implementation list in the event that bugs take an unintentionally long time to fix or balancing issues occur during the development process.
