Final Fantasy XIV’s gold saucer patch is live

    
69
In its bid to prove that it’s got wacky in spades, Final Fantasy XIV has launched the much-anticipated 2.51 patch, an unassuming name for an update that inserts an entire amusement park into the MMORPG.

Insider the newly installed Manderville Gold Saucer, the denizens of Eorzea can participate in chocobo races, the Triple Triad card game, the Cactpot casino games and lottery, and multiple “GATE” minigames. Expect new outfits, titles, recipes, and quests gallore.

If you are on Sargantanas let me know, I’d be happy to team up with you. I’m a casual hard core, meaning I have a family, but we really love playing etc. no dps meters here. I’m Brin Zalazar in game on that server. We’ve been on break as well, just playing off and on but I can’t get enough triple triad :)

Wratts Enikuo Is housing any more accessible than it was previously? I left right after they announced that personal housing was just Free Company housing, which made it really expensive. And, I remember that you could lose all the money you had put into buying a Free Company room, if you left or something happened with your Free Company.

Enikuo There is also a free weekend this weekend, so there is that temporary option.

Just compare both patches, and make the jump already!

I simply can’t believe how much content they keep adding with all these ‘small’ patches. I started playing at patch 2.4 and it took me a lot of time to complete most of the content (excluding Coil T6+) and they just keep adding. RIP free time

DaBruuzer The story is something we shouldn’t skip, part of the big thing in this game.

God dammit, as if I don’t already have enough to do in the game. And of course, they taunt me with those awesome mounts!

I generally don’t like to dou le-post…but this is so, SO worth it. The Gold Saucer is probably the most delightful, whimsical, time-eating, beautiful thing I have ever had the joy of experiencing in any MMO. Hacking away at the ridiculous congestion issues is completely worth it. My partner and I are having an absolute blast.
