    Regarding the Issue with Quick Exploration Ventures
    Hello everyone. This is FFXIV Producer/Director Yoshida.

    I’d like to explain a little bit about an error that occurred during a recent update, which led to metallic gold dye failing to drop in quick exploration ventures. The update was intended to make all the rare dyes drop with equal probability, but due to a programming error, the last line of data failed to trigger. As the metallic gold dye came at the end of the list, this meant that it couldn’t be obtained. I’m really sorry about this.

    I know a lot of you were excited about playing around with the dyes, and spent a lot of ventures sending out your retainers to find them.

    By way of apology, we’ll be sending all players with active subscriptions, including internet café-only subscriptions, four pots of metallic gold dye via the Moogle Delivery Service. (This applies to full accounts only. Unfortunately, players with free trial accounts will not receive this letter.)

    We’ve addressed the problem on our end, and the QA team is currently making sure everything works as it should. We’re planning to release a hotfix to correct the issue on Thursday, October 16. We’ll send out the pots of dye via the Moogle Delivery Service at the same time. As soon as we can confirm when the issue will be fixed, or when the letters will be sent, we’ll post it in Topics straight away.

    Please note that this is the first time we’ve implemented this method of drop randomization. None of these changes affect drop calculations for other items, which we’ve verified to be working as intended.

    I apologize again for this error, and hope the gift will go some way to making up for the problems it caused.

    Thank you for your continued support of FFXIV.

    Sounds like they gave "confirmation" that 2.4 will happen in October: http://game.watch.impress.co.jp/docs...14_671158.html

    Patch should be either the 21st or the 28th if they do another Tuesday release.

    Greetings,

    We understand the frustration that the removal of the PlaySpan, and by extension PayPal, billing option is having on customers that relied on it for paying for subscription fees or for the optional services like retainers.

    We are currently working on implementing a PayPal payment option and we hope to have this up and running soon. In the meantime, if you do encounter errors when attempting to register your credit card, please contact our Support Center for assistance.

    All Worlds Maintenance (Oct. 27-28)

    All Worlds Maintenance (Oct. 27-28)

    At the following time, in order to accompany Patch 2.4, we will be performing maintenance on all Worlds. During this period, FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn will be unavailable.

    Not only will Patch 2.4 implement the addition of the new Rogue class and the new Ninja job, but also a large increase to the number of plots of housing land. Accordingly, data-handling capacity will need to be increased, and for this reason, we will be conducting database optimization with this maintenance in order to aid in load reduction and increase data processing speed.

    Database optimization will require time. In addition, because these are vital servers that house our players’ precious data, extra care and precaution must be taken. As a result, this will be a prolonged maintenance lasting 24 hours. We ask for your patience and cooperation during this process, and apologize for any inconvenience.

    * The World Transfer Service will be suspended 15 minutes before maintenance begins, and will be unavailable until maintenance has ended.

    [Date & Time]
    Oct. 27, 2014 12:00 a.m. to Oct. 28, 2014 12:00 a.m. (PDT)

    * The completion time may be subject to change.

    New interview
    http://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/commen...rview_summary/

    Full Inteview HERE however I just translated the summarized version by a Japanese matome site here. This interview is from the London Fan Festival.
    Disclaimer: My Japanese isn't perfect and I'm not too familiar with 1.0 terminology so I welcome any corrections.


    Regarding Samurai
    - They had an idea to make Samurai a tank. However because the Heavensward (I think they call it Souten no Ishgard in Jp) theme is dark, they felt a dark knight was more fitting for the role.
    - Inside of YoshiP the Samurai feels more like a DPS than a tank.
    - Since they released the Ninja job,they didn't want another Japanese style job
    -They decided to skip Samurai for now but since a lot of people request it they are still examining whether to add it in the future

    Implementation of Dark Knight

    - Strong image of FF Tactics and Ogre Battle
    - Image of the two handed swordsman Guts similar to that from the manga Berserk.
    - Thought about making it a DPS but ultimately settled on tank
    - Can't talk about why DK has no class
    - Will be available to chose at the start of the expansion

    Regarding unannounced job

    - Making the new job too simple is not going to be interesting. (Fixed, thank you AkirraKrylon)
    - If you look at FF series of the past carefully you can imagine what it will be
    - I will talk about it at the TokyoFanfest

    Other Stuff

    - Heavensward trailer has some 2.5 contents so some of them will be implemented before the expansion pack
    - It will be a connection to the current story like the current story did to 1.0
    - Will talk a lot about patch 2.5 at Tokyo Fanfest
    - Odin battle will be added right after the fanfest is over.
    - The Odin battle at fanfest will be "hard mode" while an extreme mode will be implemented for the game.

    Regarding Flying Mounts

    - You will be able to fly over the entire map of the new area
    - However in 3.0 you will NOT be able to fly over the current game maps.
    - There will be no limit on the time it takes to fly (Fixed thank you bennyr)
    - Rewards will be given so that you can fly over the whole area right away
    - When you reach the level cap (new one?) it will be very rewarding
    - There will be adjustments made to mount variety. The basics are done but they are tweaking the gimicks and types.
    - There will be no air battles other than for story/cutscenes etc
    - You will not be able to fight field mobs in the air etc.
    - Adventurers will be able to go to the Dragon World Dravania (Thank you bennyr)
    - They keep their policy from 1.0 that you can go to places that have been "named" (aka you can't fly to a random unknown area?)

    Regarding the New Primals

    - Since we've mostly used up all the old classic FF primals we figured we'd do something new
    - Since Bismarck is a beast type, we decided Ravanna to have a cool insect type design
    - The battle is meant to include the new job which means the base level will be 60

    edit : format fixed

    Regarding the Login Difficulties Caused by Attacks from a Third-party

    We would like to take this opportunity to make a report regarding the login difficulties that took place over the last few days.

    Currently we are experiencing DDoS attacks from an anonymous third-party targeting the FINAL FANTASY XIV game servers on the NA/EU data center.

    * What is DDoS Attack?
    An attack attempting to increase the server load to an extensive level by flooding the network of the targeted servers using a massive number of computers.

    However with the attack we are currently experiencing, only a massive number of access attempts are being made to the server where both character data and personal information of our customers are not in danger of being exposed.

    Due to this attack, our game servers, network equipment and network connection are being hit with heavy load at an extensive level, which is causing a disconnection from the game and login difficulties.

    Our technical staff is taking every possible measure to address this issue but the attack is still continuing to take place by changing their methods at every moment. We will continue to monitor and work on recovery from every possible angle.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing.

    XIV could be coming to XBone with the new Cross-Play functionality being added soon. XBox boss, Phil Spencer, wants it and SE wants to port it over.
