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.
Weâ€™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. Weâ€™ve also got several adjustments to the Smite job trait.
Of course, it wouldnâ€™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, weâ€™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 Vanaâ€™diel even easier, so take this opportunity to explore the world!
November also brings along with it XI Day (11/11), and weâ€™ve got a special anniversary event complete with rewards boasting all-new graphics. Weâ€™d like for as many people to experience this event as possible, so weâ€™re also hosting a Return Home to Vanaâ€™diel Campaignâ€”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.
