That's not a doll, guy.

The final update for Final Fantasy XI is due out in November, but there’s life in the game yet before that happens, and there are many ways to respect the past and say farewell to Vana’diel. September’s update will bring with it new high-end battlefields that allow players to face off against the tag-team of Ultima and Omega along with the deity Promathia once again, recounting the climactic battles for Chains of Promathia at a higher level of difficulty.

Players must first clear the normal versions of these fights to access the high-level versions, along with exchanging items that cost 15 merit points.  Both fights can be challenged at several different difficulty levels, with the gear requirements increasing for the higher levels. Rewards include reforging items as well as unique gear for the two battles, so veteran players will want to take the fight to these old enemies once again.

daemoniron No MMO is “designed” for elitist jerks but they show up anyway. Some actual skilled players start setting “standards” (the quotes are there for a reason) and the rest who lack backbones or find it easier to follow than lead simply fall in line and solidify it. Next thing you know, anyone who can follow the steps in a video considers themselves good. Eventually some internet-aggressive low life will fall into that pool, feel like he’s better than everyone else who’s doing the exact same thing and an elitist jerk is born.

daemoniron But isn’t that the way a lot of MMOs are? “If you don’t have gear equaling 500 obscure points for some reason you can’t level with us.” at least with FFXI there was a reason. At least from what I played you didn’t really always have to get the best gear, as long as you were good at the game and could work well with your group.

No thanks, we don’t need anything from a game designed for elitist jerks.

I was planning on jumping into the Rhapsodies of Vana’diel, but by the end it’ll require me finally finish Wings of the Goddess and Seekers of Adoulin; might get to WotG at some point but doubtful about SoA unless I can solo it at some point.

Would be great if FF XIV could be a little more like XI, so many stuff i´m missing…
