Patch 4.25 Brings New Battle Elements, Powerful Weapons, and More.
LONDON (March 13, 2018) – The Forbidden Land, Eureka Anemos emerges from the mists in FINAL FANTASY® XIV today with the launch of Patch 4.25. This mysterious new region is unexplored and untamed, where the elements are constantly in flux and players will be challenged by fresh battle elements they’ll need to master in order to obtain and enhance powerful new weapons. The patch also introduces the latest chapter in the adventures of inspector extraordinaire, Hildibrand, and the seventh season of The Feast PvP.
The Forbidden Land, Eureka Anemos is an expansive, unexplored area that brings a number of changes to the normal pillars of gameplay:
• Field Area-Style Gameplay: Up to 144 players may occupy a single instance. Players are encouraged to group up with fellow adventurers to hunt notorious monsters and work towards common goals.
• Player Progression: Players will gain elemental EXP to strengthen their ability to harness the elements, but will need to be careful. Death in Eureka will see EXP and even levels lost if they rashly rush in.
• Altered Battle Mechanics: Additional strategy is required in battle through an element system, in which players must utilize the Magia Board to change the element affinity of their attack to oppose their enemy’s. Players will customize their Magia Board’s elemental attributes, and must carefully consider their setup depending on the goal of the adventure.
• Rewards: Players will occasionally earn protean crystals through exploration of Eureka, and may use them to enhance Eureka weapons and gear with the aid of the famed blacksmith, Gerolt.
