Forge Ahead in the Next Version Update! (04/18/2014)

The next version update is scheduled to descend from the mountains in mid-May.

Enjoy a wide variety of new features, including the all new Mog Wardrobe system, which makes storing equipment a breeze, and new ways to enjoy solo play, as fellows can now level up to 99 and will be empowered by player item levels.

In terms of other content, expect an expansion to the job point system, other job adjustments, new high-tier mission battlefields, mythic-equivalent weapons for geomancers and rune fencers, and-most of all-the continuation of the Seekers of Adoulin mission storyline as it prepares to reach the climax!

The development team is currently hard at work bringing you the latest in Vana'dielian goodness. We hope to see you on the other side!

Shinai-Swinging Showdown (04/17/2014)

A gentle breeze rustles through the young leaves, bringing the pleasant warmth of spring. The Feast of Swords is upon us once again, kupo!

Hello, dear adventurers.
Um –
So, uh...that Far Eastern armor has been "borrowed" by brigands again, and –

...I know, I know, kupo. I'm sorry for asking you to do the same thing over and over, kupo.

Please don't glare at me like that, kupo. Smile, smile! A happy face is the best face for a festival, kupo. Fighting is not good, kupo.

Speaking of which, those brothers who are always fighting – they haven't been arguing as much lately, kupo. I wonder what's happened, kupo...?

To read about the incident in Southern San d'Oria that brought the two belligerent brothers together, look here.

During this time period, all enemies will yield twice the capacity points that they normally would. As new job point categories are scheduled to be introduced with the May version update, there could hardly be a better time to take up sword or staff and start slaying savage fiends!
