FFXI June Version Update Imminent!

It’s been a busy month in the world of Vana’diel, and everyone is eagerly awaiting the upcoming June version update. As I’d mentioned in a previous post, this version update ushers in a slew of new and exciting changes to Final Fantasy XI, including the removal of the 75 level cap that’s been in place for upwards of 7 years.

Level 80, huh?  Lets DO THIS!

Everybody on our linkshell has been busy preparing for the update, leveling our highest jobs to the brink of 76, and debating on which job will be the first to take to level 80!

But the level cap isn’t the only big change on the horizon. The removal of the Chains of Promathia level restrictions is something that I’m personally very excited about. Chains of Promathia is one of the more difficult expansion packs, and I’ve just never had the will power to take on some of the more time consuming and challenging missions beyond the first few. Now, our linkshell will be able to experience one of Vana’diel’s most exciting tales, and even though it’s without the original rigorous challenges, I’m still looking forward to it.

In other FFXI news, I’ve been busy plowing through one of the previous version update’s better additions: the Trial of the Magians. This new weapon upgrade system tasks you with slaying a massive number of enemies under different conditions to help unlock the potential of a set weapon.

I’ve completed 4 of the 6 trials for my polearm, and I’ve really enjoyed the journey so far. While some of the weapon trial paths can be a bit tedious, they’ve taken me to areas I haven’t been to in a long time, and have helped me meet/work with a few players who I otherwise would’ve never met!

Stay tuned throughout the month for more FFXI updates as the version update draws near!

  1. Hahaha, great picture of our characters showing a Quadav who’s boss. He had no idea how bad his day would end up. xD What’s crazy is that you snapped that pic while I had my Thunder Staff out, which I only use to cast one spell. What are the odds? It looks pretty hot though. ;D

  2. Ha, I didn’t even notice that at first. I’m so pumped for the version update it’s ridiculous!
