After three months of doing the same routine over and over again, Final Fantasy XIV players can finally enjoy new contents and challenges in the latest patch 3.2 – The Gears of Change. This latest major patch consists of the continuation of the main scenario quest, another comical adventure of Hildibrand, a continuation of the giant primal fortress—Alexander: Midas, a new primal battle against the Fiend of the Warring Triad: Sephirot, Hall of the Novice, mentoring system, a new beast tribe questline: the Gnath, two new dungeons, and the Stone, Sky, Sea, as well as some adjustments regarding abilities and weaponskills, and many more.
Similar to Alexander: Gordias, this set of four raid dungeons are called Alexander – The Fist of the Son, Alexander – The Cuff of the Son, Alexander – The Arm of the Son, and Alexander – The Burden of the Son respectively. Loots that are obtained from these dungeons can be exchanged to gears (armors and accessories) with item level 220, and only one loot can be obtained from each raid dungeons each week. A piece of Midan Gear can be obtained once every weekly completion of Alexander – The Burden of the Son. Seven Midan Gears can be exchanged for a piece of high-capacity tomestone, which is needed to obtain a new weapon. Moreover, Alexander: Midas (Savage) is also made available in this latest patch, which is a harder version of the normal ones.
Containment Bay S1T7
The Fiend of the Warring Triad from Final Fantasy VI has made his appearance in the latest patch of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. Similar to other primal battles in Final Fantasy XIV, the questline starts with a normal version of the fight (Containment Bay S1T7), and followed by the harder version (Containment Bay S1T7 (Extreme)). The Containment Bay S1T7 drops item level 220 weapons randomly.
Hall of the Novice & Mentoring System
This is one of the latest feature that is made available in the game. The purpose of this feature is for veteran players—those with a level 60 in each role: tank, healer, and DPS, and have at least 300 player commendations—to be given the opportunity to sign up as a mentor (a player with a crown icon next to the in-game name) in order to help the novice/new players (a player with a sprout icon next to the in-game name). The mentors and the novices are put together in a Novice Channel where the novices may ask questions regarding the game, and the mentors will answer their questions and guide them into understanding the game further. Meanwhile, Hall of the Novice is made available for the newbies in learning the basics of their classes or roles.
