    Patch 6.3: Gods Revel, Lands Tremble (January 2023)

    Yoshi P hasn’t decided yet if they are going to launch on January 3rd or January 10th

    New MSQ and dungeon, Lapis Manalis. Appears to be in Garlemald.
    New trial and extreme (not named)
    New 24 man “Euphrosyne” raid continuing the Twelve storyline
    New Ultimate (name not revealed as of now)
    New Unreal, Sophia
    Tataru’s Grand Endeavor will continue
    New treasure map exclusive to Elpis
    New Deep Dungeon: Eureka Orthos
    Trust system updated to include remainder of Heavenward MSQ dungeons
    Spear fishing and diving added to Upper La Noscea
    New Leap of Faith map added to Gold Saucer
    6 new housing wards per area
    New season of CC PVP
    New CC map, Kugane Castle
    New Island Sanctuary stuff
    Paladin rotation will see “significant overhaul”
    New UI changes like flying battle damage text differentiated by physical/magic/unique
    “Unique” damage is the term for stuff that raid boss mechanics do that can’t be mitigated
    Option to display remaining times for buffs/debuffs on icons in the party list
    4 man and 8 man parties will allow for adventurer plates to be displayed instead of player names. Seemed nice in theory but looked pretty obtrusive in the example screenshot.


    6.35
    New Hildibrand/Relic Weapon quests
    New Tribal quests, Loporitts. Will be crafting tribe.
    New Skysteel DoH/DoL relic weapon quests with Grenolt from the First
    New delivery quests. Leaf man in Il Mheg. Pixies looks like?

    Misc:
    Blue Mage updates are “coming soon”, please look forward to it
    They have something special planned for the 10 year anniversary of A Realm Reborn launch in August 2023

    Next live letter will go more in depth on 6.3 and will likely happen in late December

    Probably January 10th considering they said they have xmas vacations this year (apparently they didn't before?) or just came back from vacations by then.

    More things being added that people use add-ons for, nice. Now if only they'd do something about their client/server handling of action delays so xivalexander isn't needed for people on 100-150ms connections.

    Dang. So much for PLD being too cool to not have a 2 min meta rotation.

    So cool they had to ride the bench while the starters took the field.

    There are proactive tanks like Drk/Gnb, and reactive tanks like Pld/War. One are busted in Raids, where not taking damage is better than recovering it after the fact, and one that is busted for dungeons, where nothing hits hard and you can slurp that health back up.

    Now, there are two types of Tank burst. One of which you already described: not on a 2 minute rotation, and one on a 2 minute rotation.

    Gnb/Drk got 2 out of 2 right. War got 1 out of 2. Pld got 0/2. Guess which Tank rode the bench this tier the most?

    Even putting damage amount aside, WHEN you deal that damage is just as important.

    Moaction is great but ever since the plugin dev had a hissy fit about not being appreciated enough and refused to update the plugin after a major break I haven't touched it since. Thankfully someone who isn't a complete manchild came along and made Reaction which is 200% more functional than Moaction and back up when Dalamud is back up because it's not written like an entry level programmer.

    I know I'm just kissing around. I always thought the PLD rotation was a bit simple and felt off when I last looked at it since you do have quite a lengthy period of time without your melee or magic buff. That and I need to respec for more SkS if I ever want to get serious again.
