Please note that even after installing the necessary software and registering expanded content, the extra jobs, new areas, and other features contained within the Treasures of Aht Urhgan version update will not be available until April 19.
In accordance with the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion content, the following additions have been made to the main menu:
Treasures of Aht Urhgan
In accordance with the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion content, the following regions have been added:
West Aht Urhgan, Mamool Ja Savagelands, Halvung Territory, Arrapago Islands
A new type of defensive battle called "Besieged" has been introduced to the Empire of Aht Urhgan.
A new type of battle called "Assault" has been added to the Empire of Aht Urhgan.
Adventurers who are level 50 or higher and have become a mercenary can participate in Assault, starting from an early stage in the Aht Urhgan storyline. You will earn Assault points for each area where you clear an Assault mission. Like Conquest points, you can trade your Assault points for various items. In addition, repeat success in Assault will make you eligible for a mercenary rank evaluation. Clear the rank evaluation and your mercenary rank will rise, resulting in a greater variety of available Assault missions and other benefits.
You can find out more information by speaking to an NPC at the Commissions Agency in Aht Urhgan.
Unlike Dynamis and Limbus, multiple parties can enter separate instances of an Assault area at the same time. However, if there are too many parties using an area for Assault, you may be unable to enter for a time.
You will receive a “homing fireflies” temporary item when entering an Assault area. The homing fireflies cannot be discarded during the mission.
A new ship route has been added from Mhaura to Al Zahbi. You must fulfill certain requirements before you can board the ship to Al Zahbi.
The new storage feature "Mog Locker" has been added. You will be able to lease a Mog Locker after completing one of the first Aht Urhgan missions. Initially, you will be able to store up to 30 items in your Mog Locker, but it can be expanded to hold a maximum of 50.
You can use your Mog Locker in an Al Zahbi Rent-a-Room.
A fee in Aht Urhgan currency is required to lease a Mog Locker.
Once your lease has expired, you will be unable to access your Mog Locker until choosing to extend the lease. Your items will still remain in the locker until you extend your lease, and will not disappear.
You can confirm the status of your lease by speaking to the moogle in your Rent-a-Room. You can extend your lease or confirm its status by speaking to the NPC "Fubruhn" in Al Zahbi.
A new feature called the "Kokba Hostel" has been added. You can reserve the facility for a certain amount of time to use for private functions. Players are provided with a variety of temporary party items and food upon entering the hostel. Attendants and a special hostel chat channel also come with the reservation.
Reservations can be made for one-hour slots (Earth time).
During the hostel reception period, you will be asked to set a password. Only players who enter this password will be able to enter the hostel during your reservation time.
Each person who enters the hostel will be required to pay a fee.
NPC "Attendants" provide additional services in the hostel, such as offering goods for sale and removing meal effects. You can select four attendants during the hostel reception period.
You can receive temporary party items even if you do not have any free space in your inventory. The temporary party items and their effects will disappear when you leave the hostel or when your reservation period ends.
You can now lease a Rent-a-Room in the new towns of Al Zahbi and Aht Urhgan Whitegate. In the event that you change jobs and leave the Rent-a-Room in the new areas, please note that there will be no option asking you to set your home point.
