Yorcia Alluvion Skirmishes were added in February. In this minigame, you summon incredibly powerful monstrous defenders in order to save your base and take down the enemy stronghold. Potently powerful armor sets are the reward from this pasttime!
In addition, Beastmaster pets can now skillchain and magic burst with their Ready moves now, and the charge time was reduced significantly.
For the truly dedicated, you can unlock new spells such as Utsusemi: San, Reraise IV, Threnody IIs, Storm IIs, tier V/VI nukes, and other special bonuses through Job Gifts.
More Wanted battles have been released as well.
Refractive Crystals allow you to toss augments on your JSE capes as well. Normally you'd have to do Incursion for this, but now you can choose to augment them without resorting to this.
In future news, lockstyle will be getting a boost soon and be able to be tied to a equipment set. Also, empyrean armor is slated to be reforgeable next update.
|Well, it's a new year, and Lucky is still around!|
Mog Bonanza Marble sales are going on for a couple of weeks, for those that are interested. Monthly updates keep adding new shiny pieces of equipment to get. Several jobs have had recent boosts, such as Summoner and Thief. The Unity and Wanted system gives even more casual players tasks to do, while there's still hard content like Adoulin missions, Delve I and II, Skirmish, Incursion, and Hard Mode fights around. There's also Job Points and Job Gifts, which reward you for dedication to a particular job.
Soon, there will be the capability to equip two linkshells at once, which means a social LS will be more desired than ever. If you haven't played in a while, perhaps you'll be convinced to peek back in and see how things are!
