    [patch1.18] Patch 1.18 Notes

    Events
    • [dev1084] The rank required to partake in several of the main scenario quests has been lowered.

      Quest NameBeforeAfter
      Never the Twain Shall Meet1513
      Beckon of the Elementals1513

      Fade to White2018
      Together We Stand2622

    • [dev1085] Main scenario quests and subquests will now award skill points upon completion.
      NPCs offering quests which grant skill points as a reward can be identified by the blue exclamation marks over their heads.
      * Completing a quest using a class ranked lower than the one recommended will result in a smaller skill point reward.

    • [dev1001][dev1002] Several new sidequests have been implemented.

    • [dev1003] Grand Company quests for all three city-states have been implemented.
      Grand Company headquarters for each city-state can be accessed via the same entrances used to enter market areas.
      * The first Grand Company quests for each city-state require adventurers to have achieved rank 22 in any Discipline of War or Magic.
      Completing a company quest will earn you an amount in Grand Company Seals commensurate with the difficulty of your assigned task.
      Each organization issues its own unique type of seal (see below), which serves as a currency of sorts and can be used to redeem myriad useful items.
        The Maelstrom: Storm Seals
        The Order of the Twin Adder: Serpent Seals
        The Immortal Flames: Flame Seals
      • Maelstrom Command (Limsa Lominsa)
        Storm Sergeant Second Class Grizzly Gnat

    • [dev1010][dev1011] The following adjustments have been made to guildleves:

      ≪All Leves≫
      • Levequests yielding guild marks will be limited to city-states hosting the corresponding guild only. For example, Blacksmiths' Guild marks can only be earned in Limsa Lominsa, while Conjurers' Guild marks will be exclusive to Gridania. Guild marks earned when meeting class recommendations will be yielded at a higher rate.
      • Gil rewards for guildleves have been reduced.
      ≪Regional & Faction Leves≫
      • Skill points are now awarded upon levequest completion.
        Additional points will be awarded for early completion of quest objectives.
        * Skill point rewards will be reduced by changing classes during a levequest or completing a levequest as a class 10 or more ranks above the recommended level.
        * Completing a regional levequest as any class other than those recommended will yield no skill points.
        * The amount of skill points rewarded will differ between leve owner, and those leve sharing.
      • The skill point bonus for defeating levequest targets has been abolished.
      • Players must now be within 5 levels of the recommended class rank for a guildleve to become available.
      • Class-specific guildleves will only be made available to players who have met the rank requirements of the corresponding class.
      • Guildleve rewards have been adjusted to better reflect the characteristics of their city-state of issue.
        * Rewards for levequests accepted before patch 1.18 will not change.
      • Changing levequest difficulty will now have a more profound effect on levequest target ranks.
      • The following changes have been made to select levequests:
        • Adjustments to levequest target types
        • Adjustments to levequest target spawn areas
        • Adjustments to levequest item drop rates
        • Adjustments to several guildleve-related system messages
        • Adjustments to the content of treasure chests that appear during levequests
      • Guardian's Aspect is now available for use during select faction levequests.
      • The following changes have been made to leve linking and leve sharing:
        • Skill point bonuses for defeating levequest targets have been abolished
        • Leve sharing players will receive a small skill point bonus for every player in their party who is leve linking
        • The maximum number of guildleves that can be linked has been raised from 3 to 7
      • A red seal is now applied to all completed regional leves.
      • Icons have been assigned to the three factions.

      • Bonus skill points granted during synthesis have been abolished.
      • Bonus rewards for high evaluation marks on certain items have been adjusted.
    • [dev1069] The following changes have been made to behests:
      • Skill points are now awarded upon behest completion.
        Bonus points will be awarded for early completion.
      • Gil rewards for behest completion have been reduced.
      • Gil/Skill point bonuses will be awarded to those who complete behests in areas where there have been no participants for several cycles, or where operations have repeatedly ended in failure.
      • Players who participate in behests will now have to wait a set amount of time before participating again.
        A behest timer can be viewed on the Timers tab located under Attributes in the main menu.
      • The number of enemies that appear during operations has been adjusted.
      • Enemy rank will now fluctuate based on the strength of operation participants.
      • Enemy variation has been adjusted for several operations.
      • Enemy spawn location has been adjusted for several operations.
      • Minimap marker position will now update automatically.
    • [dev1079] New party-based battle content known as "instanced raids" has been introduced.
      An array of rich rewards awaits those who would brave these domains, and can be obtained by defeating enemies, fulfilling certain conditions within the area, and, of course, plundering treasure chests. To participate in instanced raids, players must first have accepted a quest to access the areas in question, as well as met several requirements (listed below).
      * Once players have completed the aforementioned quest, they will be able to access the instanced raid areas at any time, as long as they meet party and rank requirements.
        

      The following instanced raids have been added:

      The Thousand Maws of Toto-RakThe Dzemael Darkhold

      * Only one "Imperial Devices" and "Into the Dark" quest can be accepted at a time. To partake in another city-state's version of the quests, players must first complete or abandon the one currently undertaken.
      * Each instanced raid area has a limit on how many parties can enter at once.
      * Players who lose their connection or log out while in an instanced raid will be relocated to outside the area entrance when logging back in.
    • [dev1077] The following mini-settlements have been added to fields around Eorzea:

    • [dev1086] A New NPC, Ronan Kognan, can be found in Gridania at (5,5).


    Battle
    • [dev1022] Auto-attack has been implemented.
      Whereas players used to have to execute normal attacks via the action bar, with auto-attack, players need to merely enter active mode, target an enemy, and approach the foe to begin their assault.
      * Auto-attack will be implemented for Disciples of War and Magic only, and will take the form of a melee attack for all applicable classes. For instance, archers will strike with their bare fists, while conjurers and thaumaturges will deliver a blow with their equipped weapon.
      * Disciples of the Land and the Hand will still require entering active mode and selecting Stone Throw from the action bar to perform an attack.
      * Players must be facing their targets to auto-attack.
      * Auto-attack will stop when a player moves too far from a target, is not facing a target, enters passive mode, or untargets an enemy.
      The speed of normal auto-attacks is determined by an attack delay value given to weapons, while manual actions are regulated by recast timers.
      * Attack delay for archers is a set value unaffected by the type of bow and arrows equipped. The delay value given to bows indicates the recast time for the action Light Shot.
       In conjunction with the implementation of auto-attack, the following basic attacks have been removed:
      • Pugilist: Heavy Strike
      • Gladiator: Light Slash
      • Marauder: Light Swing
      • Lancer: Light Thrust
      * Light Shot (Archer), Spirit Dart (Conjurer), Phantom Dart (Thaumaturge), Throw, and Stone Throw remain as executable actions, but have all been issued recast timers.
      Variations to auto attack motions, as well as the ability to cast spells while in passive mode will be implemented in a later patch.
    • [dev1022] The stamina gauge has been abolished.
      Consequently, certain actions that were dependent upon the stamina gauge have either had their effects revised, or have been made to affect attack delay. All weapons have been given a "delay" value which indicates the number of seconds in between auto attacks.
      * The casting gauge for spells has not been moved or adjusted.
    • [dev1065] The action bar, by default, will now remain on-screen at all times.
      * This setting can be switched off in the Configuration menu.

    • [dev1065] Recast timers for actions are now visible on the action bar.


    • [dev1088] Toggling between active and passive modes can now be done while moving.

    • [dev1023] The enmity algorithm has been adjusted.
      Enmity is now a culmination of all actions taken in battle with one point of damage equalling one point of enmity.

      Actions that contribute to enmity can be divided into two distinct groups:
      1. damage and enfeeblement inflicted on the target
      2. enhancement and healing granted to party members

      Not only does the amount enmity garnered differ between the two aforementioned groups, but varies based on the amount of damage dealt/HP restored. Enmity is reset when a player cannot participate in battle for an extended period of time (is KO'd, etc).
    • [dev1023] In conjunction with the enmity algorithm change, the amount of enmity earned by certain actions has been adjusted.

    • [dev1023] An icon displaying enmity has been introduced.
      This icon is located to the left of an enemy's HP bar.
      Not only does the icon indicate that a player has garnered enmity, but approximately how much enmity, and whether or not the player is the enemy's current target.


      No iconYou have garnered no enmity.
      Solid green/orange/red iconYou have garnered some enmity, the amount indicated by one of three colors: Green (low), Orange (mid), Red (high).
      The higher your enmity level, the greater the chance that you will be targeted by the enemy.
      Flashing red iconYou have garnered the most enmity in your party and the enemy is now targeting you.
      * The enmity icon can be turned on/off in the Configuration menu.
    • [dev1032] The following conjurer-specific spells have been introduced:
      • Raise II
