Greetings, adventurers!
Matsui here with your monthly update.

I’ve got to start off by offering an apology for the smallness of the April version update. The novel coronavirus has become an issue worldwide, with telecommuting and other measures currently in place at SQUARE ENIX. However, development machines are only available at the office, and security concerns place an additional restriction on the type of work we are able to do from home. As such, we want to avoid any accidents that might occur in adding new content without being able to follow our ordinary protocols—and we also have to have a plan in place if it turns out we’re not able to come into the office at all—so we’ve decided only to implement the bare necessities for this patch, with some content scheduled for April being pushed off a tad into the future.

One of those critical updates is the monthly changes to Records of Eminence. We have added new rewards available in exchange for deeds of heroism, and we hope you will find them useful in your everyday Vana’diel adventures.

The second update is the monthly Ambuscade rotation.
Both Volume 1 and Volume 2 ambuscades are reruns this month: one against orcs, the other against treants. You might recall that the treant battle had to do with the Japanese custom of flower viewing, so make sure you are using food effects that you don’t mind getting absorbed!

The development team is working on getting things back on track for future version updates. Remember to wash your hands, practice social distancing, and take good care of yourself and your loved ones.

Below is the usual table of items to be added in April. Some of these items are still undergoing testing, but we hope to bring everything on this table to you without any issues.
