The next version update for Final Fantasy XI is almost here, and it’s going to be a big one for Monks. That’s the focus aside from the usual monthly content overhauls; Monks have gotten some big adjustments regarding potency and abilities. You might want to test them out a bit before jumping right into that Ambuscade match, as well as double-checking your equipment stats, since those have also been adjusted. Lots of adjustments, in other words.
Of course, you may not really be thinking about high-end content yet because you’re very aware that your character is woefully behind anyhow, but that’s not a problem. August is going to be a month of catching up, with several bonus drop and equipment enhancement campaigns running through most of the month, along with a week of boosted experience and JP gains for players. Check out all of the campaign details if you want to get a leg up on advancement once the next update arrives on August 3rd.
