As in any MMO value its salt, the true endgame of Final Fantasy XIV is style. The game’s job system signifies that you’ve acquired so much of gear to hold onto, and there aren’t sufficient glamour plates to deal with a style set for all of your occupations. The former difficulty is getting partly addressed by the removing of belts, however after introducing some of the new raid gear coming in Endwalker, director and producer Naoki Yoshida supplied some hope for extra space on each side.
“I know this is going to beg the question of ‘well, I don’t have enough room in my armoury chest anymore’, or ‘what about more glamour plates?’” Yoshida says (through translator) in the newest Live Letter. “We are making preparations. We’re trying to see how we can expand, and by 6.1 timing, I believe we’re going to be getting pretty close to having our preparations in place to start addressing some of these issues that we have with ‘capacity’, so to speak.”
Patch 6.0 will deliver us a bit extra armoury chest space as of the Endwalker launch date, as the space beforehand given to belts will now be accessible for major weapons and rings. But that doesn’t handle the (comparatively) small quantity of glamour plates, and much more armoury space would go an extended solution to serving to handle stock points. Of course, we’ll have to attend till 6.1 to see what form of enhancements the devs will be capable to implement, as FFXIV getting old back-end has prevented them from merely including extra stock space in the previous.
Yoshida’s feedback start at the 4:32:54 mark in the video under.
The Live Letter additionally launched us to the new spearfishing minigame, and the new Crystal Conflict PvP mode. Alas, it wasn’t all excellent news, as the Endwalker delay was introduced as half of the broadcast, too.
