The new year approaches for Final Fantasy XI, and with it approaches another monthly update for the game. This is the first in what promises to be a year of job balance updates, starting with making some Dancer and Dragoon abilities easier to use. The team is also adjusting Besieged objectives for Records of Eminence and naturally including new tasks within Ambuscade, the latter of which happens on a monthly basis like clockwork.
Meanwhile, players who play neither Dancer nor Dragoon and don’t need any Besieged records will still have things to do with the game’s array of promotional campaigns, running from January 11th until January 31st. These include a special treasure chest for Abyssea along with improved light values, the improvement of escha silt values in Geas Fete, and buffs to chocobo digging. So everyone gets something fun to celebrate as the new year rolls out for FFXI.
