Finished all the content found in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.3 and craving something new to do? A new adventure awaits in Patch 5.35 which Square Enix rolled out onto North American, European and Japanese servers this week. The most significant addition in this sub-patch is the first chapter of this expansion’s new large-scale battle content, in addition to the next “Save the Queen” chapter to enhance resistance weapons, the continuation of Housing Savage with the inclusion of new housing wards and more.
A summary of the main inclusions in Patch 5.35 can be found below, while the full patch notes can be read HERE.
Resistance Weapon Enhancement Quest Series “Save the Queen” Update
Adventurers can enhance powerful weapons obtained in the first chapter of this quest series by participating in a variety of in-game content, including the new Bozjan Southern Front.
New Large-Scale Battle Content: “Bozjan Southern Front”
Join a team of up to 72 players to assist the Bozjan Resistance in their mission to rout the IVth Imperial Legion. This new area includes both story-focused quests and additional challenges for players of all playstyles.
Addition of New Housing Wards
Three new housing wards, each with a corresponding subdivision, will be added to each residential district, bringing hundreds of new plots for players to purchase. Apartments will also be added to each of these wards and subdivisions.
New Game+ Updates
Players can now experience the A Realm Reborn main scenario questline—which has been streamlined as of Patch 5.3—while retaining their current character and level.
Crafter and Gatherer Content Update: “Skysteel Tools”
The latest update to this questline will allow Disciples of the Land and Hand to further upgrade their Skysteel Tools to aid in crafting and gathering.
New Items, Recipes, Mount, Minion, Emote, Hairstyle and more.
This update coincides with the release of Final Fantasy XIV’s new website-based Community Finder tool, an update to the Lodestone community website. The idea behind this system is enabling free companies, linkshells and PvP teams to easily post recruitment listings made public to the wider community on their Data Center and World.
