Battle Content Adjustments

 In the June version update of Final Fantasy XI, several changes will be implemented to various battle content to streamline and ease difficulty! Changes include reducing the minimum number of participants for Skirmish, adjustments to spoil drop rates, boon adjustments, exchange rate of lebondopt to pulchridopt wings, and more. High tier battles will see a reduction of merit points needed to buy entry items as well as changes to overall drop pools, and Delve will see an adjustment to yggzi bead drop rates.

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