Alter Ego and Fellow Additions and Adjustments

 In the upcoming May version update of Final Fantasy XI, Square Enix plans to make your Alter Ego and Adventuring Fellow battle companions stronger than ever! Two new Alter Egos, the Martial Master Maat and the Yagudo ninja Gessho, will be implemented, and your Alter Egos will be summonable in the Wings of the Goddess expansion areas.

 A number of changes are also in store for the Adventuring Fellow NPCs, including the raising of their level cap to 99, the ability to go past lv. 99 based on item level gear, and a decrease to the exp penalty suffered by players while they have an adventuring fellow out.

Excited for the new changes? Let us know all about it over on the ZAM forums!
