    Patch 3.1 Information

    This information was provided by the user jiroland on reddit for translating it so all credit to that person

    This is just a copy and paste of the information for those that don't use reddit.

    Apparently today an embargo has been lifted and Dengeki, 4gamer, Famitsu, Game Watch has all posted their interviews with Yoshida talking about 3.1.

    Another FF14 news site has summed up most of the new information from all interviews above, and the translation is below:

    Patch Notes
    • Patch Note reading scheduled for Nov 9th
    • If everything goes smoothly Preliminary Patch Notes will be out at Nov 6th (tomorrow!)

    Main Scenario
    • The "Light" and "Darkness" in the patch title refers to three things : First, it refers to the grudges and boundary between men and dragons. Second, it refers to the darkness of Void Ark, and the bright adventures waiting on Diadem. Lastly it also refers to Warriors of Light and Darkness.
    • Starting from 3.X they want the players to be able to unlock Primal battles without having to progress through the story. However, Dungeons will still be included in the story.
    • About Krile's cat-eared hood, they still have many things to consider before implementing it as an equipment, such as how will it interact with Miqo'te's ears, and so on.

    Ministrel Ballad : Thordan's Reign
    • You need coordination to be able to clear it. It is a bit similar to T9, and also will have a lot of gimmicks from 2.X EX Primals.
    Void Ark
    • Difficulty is set similar to World of Darkness.
    • Equipment reward's IL will be 'very useful for subjobs'.
    • They learned their lesson from LotA's FATE, so Void Ark will be very fast to unlock.
    • They are thinking about how to prevent players mass leaving in the middle of content (referring to how many Bards would left at WoD's 2nd boss, only aiming for the chestpiece), but it will be difficult.
    Four-man Dungeons
    • 3.1 Expert roulette will be composed by only the two new dungeons.
    • Neverreap and Fractal will become a new "Level 60 Dungeons" roulette.
    • High-level roulette will be renamed "Level 50 Dungeons".
    • The staffs perform final quality checks on Dungeons by playing roles they're not accustomed to, leading to situations like DPSes that only cares about their DPS, Tanks panicking because of that, casual healers, etc.
    • Regarding a hard four-man dungeons, it will be hard to implement as the burden on healer will be intensive. However, Yoshida wants to implement it, if just once.
    Airship Exploration
    • IL179 minimum.
    • If you have a high-ranked Airship, it'll be relatively easy to unlock Hard.
    • If you go from Ishgard instead, you will need to pay 700 gil per person. You will also be matched into Tank 1 Healer 2 DPS 5 party (no restriction for premade full parties).
    • Drop rate for Aetherial IL210 equipment : hunting continuously for 90 minutes straight will probably yield a few.
    • Difficulty only affects enemy's strength and drop rate.
    • You can obtain Grade V from the new crafted equipments requiring Diadem mats.
    • Next update scheduled at 3.3. 3.2 will focus on adjusting current content.
    Gold Saucer
    • Afro is exchanged for MGP.
    VanuVanu Beast Tribe Quests
    • The dance can be obtained from a quest.
    • There's also new dyes to obtain.
    Level 50 Dungeons
    • You'll gain more EXP for dungeons that take longer to finish (note : so probably Brayflox will give very little)
    Alexander
    • By the end of October, around half of active players have cleared Alex Normal.
    • Savage clear numbers are lower than expected.
    • They will keep an eye on clear numbers and if needed perform adjustments for Savage on 3.15.
    • For the next Alexander on 3.2, it'll probably not use the same Normal/Savage division.
    • Yoshida ideally want to implement Easy/Medium/Savage three- tiered difficulties, but on the other hand they are lacking the staff to implement that much.
    • Yoshida wants to implement a cross-world, raid-only, party finder system. However, it is still only an idea he have and no real work has been done on it.
    Job Adjustment
    • Paladin's main problem is the compatibility with current contents.
    • Adjustments will be made to address TP issues, but no adjustment will be made to Paladin's DPS.
    • They are aware that currently Clemency and Divine Veil do not have many uses in current content.
    Seal Rock
    • No adjustments will be made at 3.1. Adjustments will be made together with Wolves' Den II on 3.2
    3.2 Materia Changes
    • From 3.2 accessories from raids will be the strongest.
    VR
    • No plans to implement VR to the actual game, even though they did that VR Titan demo.

    This right here is complete garbage. People aren't using DRK for the non-existent utility they have, they are using DRK because it has better DPS than the PLD. Guess I have to wait for the dmg formula change to tanks in 3.2 to see if I'll be going back to PLD or not.

    Why not just put the ears in the ear slots?...

    This will probably not make many people happy.

    So are we going to have level 60 dungeon roulette AND expert roulette? I wouldn't mind that.

    Add Aetherochemical Research Facility to the expert roulette, would bring some much needed variety to the humdrum we currently have.

    Thordan like Nael Van Hardass. Oh that should be a blast
