    Patch 5.5: Death Unto Dawn (April 13th 2021)

    Patch 5.5 drops on April 13th
    Patch 5.55 drops at the end of May

    Reiterated that PS5 open beta will launch with 5.5 and reminded everyone that PS4 to PS5 upgrade will be free.

    New story dungeon “Paglth’an”, looks to be an area just outside Ul’Dah

    Final 24 man raid from Yorha will drop. Name of the raid is a secret and will not be revealed until launch.

    Final chapter of Sorrows of Werlyt, prepare to battle Diamond Weapon.

    Explorer mode will be expanded to include level 70 dungeons.

    Final major update to Bozjan Southern front. Expect tweaks and hot fixes that do not require a full update to continue. Unclear if this is meant for 5.55 but if it follows the pattern of previous Bozja updates it will be in 5.55.

    New items for crafters & gatherers.

    They showed a screenshot of the mount reward for collecting all the dragon mounts from the Shadowbringers EX trials. It appears to be Mecha-Bahamut.

    The new Ultimate, “Dragonsong War”, has been delayed to patch 6.1 because of COVID.

    New arrangement album titled “Scions & Sinners” will be available to purchase during digital fan fest in May.

    Yoshi P says the Warrior of Light being a paladin in the Endwalker trailer was done for two reasons. First as a direct contrast to the dark knight of Shadowbringers and secondly since the moon is so heavily involved in Endwalker’s story they thought paladin would be a fun reference to FFIV.

    New Bozja stuff is probably 5.55 yeah, but the from what I understood the hot fixes are something they're working on to introduce asap to the current content to alleviate the complaints about Bozja

    I'm starting to think the timing of the next NieR raid/patch is not a coincidence with the upcoming NieR remaster/upgrade that's coming 22nd/23rd April. I speculate that this raid will:

    - Contain heavy or more references to NieR: Replicant (Gestalt in NA) - note that a bit of NieR Replicant leaked into the 2nd raid already with the last boss theme. It often made me wonder where it's going with it, so now I guess we may have an answer if they'll pluck more from NieR (although to be fair they never said it was going to be purely Automata I think)
    - Emil (series mascot, more or less, as well as for Yoko Taro himself) should make some form of an appearance in the last leg of the story quest
    - Possible costume/dress/glamour should be heavily inspired from NieR. Here are the 3 automata characters in their DLC costumes (taken from NieR)



    The combination of all the above should basically be what is an in-game raid and story long advertisement for the remaster. Of course not all FFXIV players will be NieR fans, but if some were intrigued over it during the initial raid and checked out Automata and liked it, then chances are this might just help sell it (and not to mention unless you have a copy of the PS3 game, or go via emulation, it's a bit hard to to play/get hold of).

    I might just be bubbling with a bit of excitement, but I really hope the raid armor is based off this gear, or at least a coffer at the end is offered for for Kaine (2B, on the right) or the protagonist (left character, known as A2).

    the nier raid got me super interested in the franchise. Spent several hours watching a youtube series on the background of drakenguard/nier as a result. I'll never play the game, but the lore is very neat

    In trailer, NieR raid has 2 bosses from original NieR and the creepy girl from Automata. The cool thing is the 8-bit zone too!

    Last boss better not be fucking Square Enix CEO lol

    Liveletter also showed Devola/Popola (Automata) glamour, and what looks to be the resistance units glamor that you meet on earth.

    edit: in case anyone is wondering why I said Square Enix CEO:

    Spoiler: show
    Square Enix CEO is the last/secret boss of NieR Automata's DLC

    Yoshi P shows off two new mounts, a Scree and Namazu, that look like the existing mounts, but have a good glow. Think shiny Pokémon. He says they will be purchased in game with gil. Says there may be some players who can afford both. Asked how expensive they are. He says “Expensive. I don’t mean one or two million. They are expensive.”

    So that’s nice to have a use for gil again.

    Unless I missed a part this is incorrect, instead they're allowing you to enter with between 24-48 people

    Isn't unreal just extreme but scaled to 80?

    edit: was thinking maybe the healing debuff might be too annoying to handle, or the add has too much hp

    Preliminary Patch Notes:

    https://eu.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodes...63f314d11cc51a

    This is amazing:

    Parties that meet the minimum size requirements for Duty Roulette: Leveling can now be matched to duties based on the level of party members.
    The duty chosen will be within eight levels of the lowest level party member. For example, for a party whose members are level 70, 72, 75, and 79, a duty ranging from level 63 to 70 will be chosen.
    Duty Finder Settings
    From the Duty Finder Settings window, select Limited Leveling Roulette to enable this matching option.

    Parties must meet minimum size requirements. This setting is unavailable for solo duties, or those requiring three or fewer players.
    Only the party leader's settings are applicable.
    Parties must meet entry requirements for two or more duties.

    This is amazing:
    That should be applied to the leveling roulette in general. No one likes it when everyone is 60+ and it decides to give you Sastasha for the third time that week. BLU sets saving hotbars is a godsend, but I really need more than 5 presets I can save since I have separate role builds for dungeons vs. trials vs. solo vs. group.
