    Quest-related:
    • New beast tribe quests for the Vanu Vanu
    • Level Adjustment Feature - Monster strength will be adjusted according to the level of the quest. Rewards can only be received with the job you accepted the quest with.
    • The requirements to undertake Thok Ast Thok (Extreme) will be changed.
      Originally you needed to clear the The Limitless Blue (Extreme) first, but it will be possible to challenge this battle without clearing it.
    • Certain portions of the Aether Current quest will be changed so that they can be obtained by progressing through the main scenario quest line.

    User Interface-related
    • Messages displayed in the center of the screen will be hidden during cutscenes.
      Players will be able to change the system message settings so that messages such as retainers returning from ventures, and items sold on market board will be hidden during important cutscenes.

    Exploratory Missions


    Q1: Are there any daily or weekly reward or restrictions related to challenging the content?

    A1: There is no restriction on entering. This content will allow players to explore without worrying about clearing the content. The maximum time you can remain within the area is 90 minutes.

    There is a 120 minute interval since you first entered until you can enter again. For example, you explored the full 90 minutes, then there will be 30 minute cooldown time. We can adjust this cooldown based on player feedback, so please try it out and let us know through the forums.

    Q2: You mentioned that there will be other parties on the islands we are exploring, but does that mean there will be battles to claim monsters and treasure chests?

    A2: There will be no difference between the enmity system that is currently in place for FATEs. You’ll be able to earn rewards by doing damage to the monster’s HP.

    Q3: Are there any lotting rules for the items that are dropped?

    A3: It will be possible to select from loot master, regular loot, and all greed when departing for exploratory missions from your free company's workshop. When departing from the landing area in Ishgard, it will be limited to greed only. It will also be limited to greed only when entering as a party.

    Q4: Are there any limitations or rank requirements for the airships we can use for exploratory missions?

    A4: In order to depart on an easy mission, you will need rank 10. For a hard level mission, you will need to have discovered the island previously on an exploratory voyage.

    Q5: Roughly how long will we be playing on a single island? Will it be easy for people that do not have a lot of time to participate?

    A5: A maximum of 90 minutes. After entering, you will not be able to re-enter for 120 minutes. If you are exploring for 90 minutes, you’d have 30 minutes in between when you can enter again.

    Q6: What kind of bonuses are there for using a free company airship in exploratory missions compared to entering using the Duty Finder?

    A6: First, there are two ways to enter exploratory missions. One way is to enter using an airship built by the FC, and the other is entering after accepting a request from House Haillenarte in Ishgard.

    When challenging the content from House Haillenarte, you’ll need to talk to an NPC, so that will be handled via the duty finder.

    In addition to this, there are Easy/Normal/Hard difficulties for exploratory missions. The maps are the same; however, the monsters will have rank numbers 1 through 6 instead of levels.

    The FC route will be able to challenge the Hard mode.

    When entering with an FC owned airship, players outside of the FC may also be invited. However, this will require having one member from the FC who own the airship to be in that party. Players are able to fly up to 3 airships, so another benefit FC can get is that they can enter with three full parties, up to 24 players.
