March out of the light.
The next patch for Final Fantasy XIV will arrive in late January according to the most recent live letter from producer/director Naoki Yoshida. Of course, players don’t have to just sit back and shrug about “eh, sometime in January,” as the letter also covered some of the features coming along. New dungeons? Yes, two of them, including a hard mode for the Fractal Continuum. The new Sigmascape portion of Omega, improvements to Perform actions, a new set of PvP adjustments… oh, and new storage for chocobos and a whole new system for storing and using glamours. That’s new.

The new system will allow you to save “glamour ensembles” that you can swap to if you’ve already prepared the setup, with all glamours being compiled to work under a single type of prism instead of different types split by crafting discipline. Up to 200 of your most frequently glamoured pieces will be eligible for storage. There’s also the promise of new housing to be released a week after the patch is released, with more information about purchasing changes coming before the patch goes live. And then there are new tomestones, the new Eureka land to both explore and improve equipment, the Ananta beast tribe quests… there’s a lot of stuff. You know, like most FFXIV patches.

As for the further future… we did just get a fanfest site promising a fanfest in November of next year. So, you know, start your speculation engines.

Hmm. The “glamour commode” doesn’t exaaaaaactly sound like what I’d like it to be, but we’ll see once it releases.

Playing on Balmung I have given up all hope for housing outside of a room in my FC estate.

Same here on Lamia. It’s really unfortunate that they refuse to add more districts to all the housing areas. I don’t understand really what the limitation is, or if it’s one of those “we want players to get a sense of pride and accomplishment” type spiels..

I love that you never stop trying to make up for hurting me, I hate you for being too stubborn to admit you could have avoided hurting me to begin with… I know you only want me to be happy, but I don’t need a thousand presents to distract me from your failings. All I need is you to be there for me.

You are an abusive spouse, housing.
