Final Fantasy XIV launches patch 5.1: Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty

Ah yes, teamwork.

It’s patch day once again for Final Fantasy XIV, and if you think that means the game has made tons of things available for players to do once more… well, you’d be right. This is a reliable pattern now. If you had forgotten that this particular patch also brings a new launcher for the game, though, consider this your reminder so you aren’t shocked when the launcher looks wildly different once you boot things up. It’s a change.

Aside from the launcher, of course, players will have new beast tribe quests to undertake for the Pixies, new main scenario quests, a new alliance raid, a new dungeon, new custom deliveries, new gear to acquire… lots of things, in other words. Check out the full patch notes if you want a clearer picture of what to work through, or just take a gander at the trailer one more time before you start bringing a whole mess of shadow all over again.

The Nu Mou still creep me out. I get it, but… god I’m getting flashbacks of DBZ-Abridged Broly and the slaves from it…

Also, I can’t be the only one expecting the Machine Head blown off the door just before you unlock the Copied Factory to factor in at some point. They HAVE to know some people are suspicious of how it just rolled on out of the place! If I can get a good-boy Emil head pet from an alliance raid-tied side quest? I’d be delighted.

Coldrun ??

I’m most excited for the crafting changes. Ability bloat made me stop leveling them in the mid-50s. I just got overwhelmed by the amount of skills and when to use which. Now I can try again!
