Sq. Enix is on the brink of unleash Ultimate Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers enlargement out into the world, and along with the entire new content material that entails, we’re additionally getting some long-awaited (like 9 years, if you happen to depend the 1.Zero model) high quality of life (housekeeping) upgrades.
Since I have been taking part in for some time and have been asking for these for a while, I am going to break them down one after the other.
Altitude Indicator for Quest Aims
In brief, there’s normally a number of quests throughout every principal story marketing campaign which can be a ache to search out. You may see a ton of parents operating round asking “the place’s the search?” because the default quest finder instrument does not account for altitude. Oh hey! Your goal was really in a cave 100 ft underground.
Nicely, that is altering in 5.0 (Shadowbringers), however sadly just for 5.0 on quests at first. Sq. Enix says it will likely be “step by step” fixing previous quests although.
A Rumble within the Obligation Participation Window
Gamers have been asking for extra direct suggestions for dungeon/trial queue completion, so Sq. Enix is acquiescing. Should you do not play the sport, a lot of the actions in FFXIV are carried out by way of “queuing,” wherein gamers, both solo or with mates, queue as much as do actions with different gamers. I hesitate to solely name it “matchmaking” as you continue to need to queue even with a full social gathering of mates to get into an occasion, however that is one component of it.
When queuing on a PS4 controller the speaker will make a little bit sound, which is nice, however now we now have much more suggestions by way of a controller vibration. It is ultimate for while you’re making a sandwich earlier than a raid and must run again into the room.
New Celebration Finder Hyperlinks
That is most likely essentially the most straight-forward improve of the lot. Bear in mind these friend-parties I used to be speaking about? Nicely it may be a ache to group up generally, notably if it is somebody not in your pal checklist or throughout a unique server (FFXIV added cross-server play a number of years again). You needed to manually to go the social gathering finder instrument, find them, after which be part of.
Now you may simply find their social gathering in chat and immediately go to their itemizing. This could make random world questing (hunts!) that a lot simpler.
Coiffure Choice Modifications
This one goes out to the entire cosmetic-oriented gamers on the market (learn: everybody taking part in FFXIV). The coiffure menu now tells you learn how to unlock sure cuts, and now your retainers (NPC bankers/auctioneers) can profit from them.

Simplifying PS4 Login
Lastly, the PS4 will now save your password for fast login if you’d like.
Are you able to consider this hasn’t been normal since 2014?
