All right, Beastmasters of Vana’diel, it’s time to start this year off right with adjustments. Yes, the latest Final Fantasy XI update doesn’t just bring new Ambuscade opponents and updates (as happens every month) but also brings adjustments for the game’s most masterful of beast-handlers, with adjustments to ability recast timers, Merit Point enhancements, and the like. You can get a rundown of the changes in video form below, or you can head over to the official forums to share your feelings on how Beastmaster feels now.
The game has also kicked off its latest login campaign, with the centerpiece item for the month being a model Synergy furnace decoration. You can’t use it for actual Synergy, but then, it’s not as if most people are terribly concerned with Synergy these days anyhow. Of course, there are the usual rings, decorations, and mounts to pick up as well, so feel free to indulge.
