Announcing the April Version Update
Well met, adventurers! Matsui here with the usual rundown.
Early spring is a time when life blooms anewâ€”and a perfect time to ring in a fresh new set of seasons in Vanaâ€™diel.
Those that follow Freshly-picked Vanaâ€™diel will remember that weâ€™re bringing back some old foes to Intense Ambuscades. We took a careful look at playersâ€™ reactions and have decided to bring the Gigas back for round two. Many of you are familiar with how to tackle these foes, so help out your friends who may be seeing them for the first time!
Of course, old content with the same rewards isnâ€™t terribly appealing, so this time weâ€™ve decided to breathe a little bit of life into them. Spoils you can look forward to include new materials to reforge existing equipment to stronger versions. These materials are not exclusive to this monthâ€™s Ambuscade rotation, so thereâ€™s no need for those of you who might not have as much time to dedicate this month to rush.
Weâ€™re also planning some quality of life adjustments to Escutcheons, including a message for craftsmanship gains in the log windowâ€”an undertaking that was actually much more difficult to implement than it might seem.
And thereâ€™s something else that we know youâ€™ve been waiting for: an alter ego of another Ark Angel! This time Ark Angel MR headlines the Trust Initiative, and the planner in charge really hopes you enjoy what he has prepared.
