Final Fantasy XI October Update Details

Square has revealed details on Final Fantasy XI's October update, which was implemented today. Apart from fixing various bugs from previous updates, the newest update has tweaked the game's previously problematic balance during party play, and improved the abilities of the job class beast tamer (the time period between catching beasts has been reduced from 5 minutes to 15 seconds). A new server will be deployed to handle the current class data of both PlayStation 2 and PC users. Black Mages now can learn the ability escape in order to return to a dungeon's entrance, while White Mages can obtain a new teleport spell. Instead of adding fixed numbers to your stats, certain meals will from now on have relative stat increases attached to them. Tactical Points will now be visible on screen. A new peninsula named East Ronfel Bubrim has been added. Furthermore, the line-up of items rewarded for conquests has been enlarged.

Final Fantasy XI was released in Japan on May 16th and has sold 120,000 copies to date. The PC version will be available in Japan on November 7th.
