Good day, adventurers!
Matsui here with your monthly XI chat.

Fall is done in the blink of an eye here in Tokyo, with colder days increasingly becoming the norm. So why not stay inside this November—the eleventh month of the year—and celebrate with us as Vana’diel only gets hotter!

This month we’re got the first part of The Voracious Resurgence, Chapter 10. I know you’re curious to see what lies in store next for the Destiny Destroyers, and you’ll continue your journey over in Bastok. Hope you enjoy it!

In Sortie, we’ll be introducing the foes that we postponed from the previous version update, which saw a new section open up. New treasure coffers are now available, and we hope the rewards are commensurate with your efforts!

We’ll also be increasing the master level cap this month, as well as introducing new hunting grounds in an existing area for all your exemplar point needs. I know many of you were clamoring to see the sky as you farm points, and we hope that our monster adjustments in this area will provide a fresh way to grind.

Ambuscade Volume 1 features iron giants, while Volume 2 features mantis enemies. Both of these are reruns of previous events.
The iron giant battle has been adjusted to increase damage while they are in certain modes, and at Difficult the duration of the status ailments inflicted by the iron giants has been decreased.
The mantis battle makes its first return since September 2019. Their behavior changes based on their remaining HP, meaning that you will need to approach the fight differently—both offensively and defensively—as it progresses. Beware of heavy damage when they change modes, but do note that the more enhancing effects you have active, the less damage you may take. Best of luck!

We’re now officially past the halfway point of our 20th Vana’versary. I hope that you have been enjoying the festivities together with all of us and are staying happy and healthy as your balance your real life responsibilities with your adventures in FINAL FANTASY XI.

See you in Vana’diel!
