Well met, adventurers! Matsui here with your monthly rundown.

November is the eleventh month of the year—a predictably auspicious time for FINAL FANTASY XI. This month we’ve got a new type of battle content to unveil that we’ve been working on since last year!

The title of this content is Dynamis-Divergence. This all-new type of Dynamis content requires a keen eye toward strategy, and we expect the more battle savvy among you will have a lot to sink your teeth into. The first foray into this brand-new Dynamis takes place in San d’Oria, and while the environment will be familiar, battles play out completely differently. There are new gimmicks, new spoils, and so much more. As alluded to above, this is only the first of several that we have planned, and we promise to keep creating even more challenging content to keep you on your toes!

For Ambuscade, we’ve whipped up a dvergr kerfuffle that you might want to “read” up on before you step inside. So pull up a chair, get on your glasses, find the closest thing that could potentially function as a bookmark and start cracking open (cracking apart?) some tomes! Meanwhile, this month’s Expert Ambuscade features a return of the popular poroggo battle, so get ready to hop to it!

We’ve also got a quality-of-life adjustment for the escutcheon questline planned, making it possible to select either the crystal or the material when using the Synthesis Focuser II. This adjustment came about thanks to your earnest feedback on the forums, and we would like to thank you, as always, for your wonderful suggestions.

Below is the usual list of what to expect in November. As always, last-minute issues may arise that cause us to put some of these on the back burner for now, but we’re doing our best to make sure as much makes it into November as possible.
