Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood patch notes have been released

Tomorrow morning, Final Fantasy XIV players will be able to start moving through Stormblood, exploring new areas, leveling the new jobs, clearing new quests, and so forth. As a result, the enormous patch notes for the expansion are now here, and reading through all of them will take a while. Even when you include the fact that the simply massive number of new items added into the game means that you won’t be sitting through that list.

Both Red Mage and Samurai will have their initial job quests in Ul’dah, so if you logged out in that city, you get full marks for prediction. The next part of the Main Scenario will start in the Rising Stones, and players will want to stop by Revenant’s Toll anyhow to exchange all Heavensward tomestones for Allagan Tomestones of Poetics, which now serve as the all-purpose stones for prior expansions. This also means changes to the roulette structure, changes to the UI, and… well, the point is that there are a lot of changes. Luckily, you have all day to read through the notes before the game comes back online tomorrow.

Attribute points have been removed!? But how am I supposed to complain about how boring that system was now??
(In all seriousness, I’m excitedly reading these notes.)

I was planning to log out in ul’dah inn room since I thought RDM might be there, but I went for Rising Stones anyway, since it’s where I logged out before Heavensward! Also this way I can step outside and buy my RDM ironworks weapon right away, swap over my tomes and such. Then after upgrading to 130 I have all my caster gear ready to go the moment I unlock the job.

Got a static ready to go over the weekend. Me on RDM, husband on SAM, friend who just returned finishing off AST and a PLD.

Only took a quick look since as usual an mmo expansion means dataminers will ruin everything and end up on my twitter timeline as usual with it but the bLM quest name is very interesting and man i hope both new jobs being in uldah means the balmeme data center is ready for a solid crash or ten.

Balmeme is so fucked lol. It couldn’t even handle the opening of the golden shower event a few weeks ago, and that probably had nowhere near as many in ul’dah as this will.

Be very careful opening the notes on a mobile device if you have limited data plan!
