One Final (?) Look at Final Fantasy XIV: Patch 4.4 Before ReleaseNew gear, hairstyles, and yes, even a capybara await.09.13.18 - 2:56 PM
See, I knew it. I said
there would be more media for this patch before release, and here we are. Nine new screenshots today give us a look at even more coming to Final Fantasy XIV with next week's Patch 4.4.
Today is going to be a big Nintendo news day, so let's just plow through these:
Two new screens show off one of the stars of the Omega raid series, with the adorable Alpha (he's the yellow one), and the viciously-rendered Chaos from FFI (he's the gold one).
More platforming! The latest attraction coming to The Manderville Gold Saucer is "Leap of Faith," finally giving us a hair-pulling reason to visit that giant statue near Highbridge in the desert of Thanalan.
Hoo boy. That's a gear set. Above are the new gear sets that will be available with the new Allagan Tomestones of Genesis, which will be acquired via the newest raids and dungeons. Dark Knights may not be keen on a white tank set, but otherwise, they've got a great color scheme going on this time.
The website for the patch declares there are "new mounts and minions," plural, so we don't know yet just how many will be added of each. But we do have this fiery doggo that will be won from Suzaku, and the capybara really needs no introduction. I needs one.
No patch is complete without new emotes and hairstyles, so here's a peek at both!
Okay, that's all for today. Given that we haven't seen the new gear from the Alphascape raid, and we usually do, we may very well be back before next Tuesday with another media post. In any case, mark your calendars for September 18th, because that's when Final Fantasy XIV Patch 4.4: Prelude in Violet drops.
