Final Fantasy XI prepares for a June update and mandragora antics

In the summer, when it's buggy.

It’s not really a surprise at this point that Final Fantasy XI is getting a June version update. What is a bit surprising is that the version update is on the smaller side; aside from a slug-filled new round of Ambuscade enemies, the update mostly consists of some small quality-of-life improvements and quest text clarification for Escutcheon quests. But there’s the hint that players can think of this as something of a preparation patch, so perhaps there’s something else going on behind the scenes…

Regardless, you’ll still have enough to do when the Sunshine Seeker event returns as well, tasking players with running about at the behest of a small mandragora seeking out the illumination of the sun. Players can earn special alter egos and other nice rewards for flitting about between plant-based enemies and collecting sunlight shards, so that seems like the perfect event to kick off the gateway into summer.
