FFXIV 3.2 Preliminary Patch Notes Highlights

gearsofchange

So we got the release of the preliminary patch notes for FFXIV patch 3.2 today! I wanted to take a moment to highlight what excites me most! This is long because patch notes are long.

WOOT!

patchhildibrand

More Hildibrand is always fantastic, but the Vivi whatever it is (minion? doll?) is just all the more cool. I actually own a Vivi plushie IRL, and this reminds me so much of it!

patchvath

Looking forward to the new beast tribe quests!

patchbeasttribe

Both of these are good! It’ll be nice to do more than just 3 Vanu quests a day – should help speed up relic a bit. Also, it’s nice to get Tomes from beast tribe quests again.

It also looks like Grade IV Materia are given out for some of the Beast Tribe dailies. Don’t know if you can choose your Materia, or if it’s random, but that’s very useful.

patchorch

Really want this! I like that we can get them for our Inn rooms, too!

patchminion

Whaaat? More Minions now!

patchvoidark

This is fantastic! All the gear you can roll on, and any materia of choice! Very, very nice!

patchdf2

As DPS dealing with DF queues, any extra information is always very welcome.

patchparty

BEST CHANGE EVER!!!!! I’m SO looking forward to this change!

patchseals

Yay! More ways to get ventures! Thank you! 🙂

patchmentor

Still working on the requirements for this, but hope to be a mentor one day!

Yay!

patchventures

Another way to get ventures? I’m down with that.

patchfates

Interesting. Making it easier to unlock Crystal Tower.

patchairship

Neat!

patchidyll

Oh, nice! Watching this city being built is going to be fun!

patchct

This is a good start in making CT relevant again, but more still needs to be done.

patchhunts

More experience is always a good thing.

patchnovice

This is a great idea. I hope people actually try to use it. ‘

patchmateria

Oh, this is nice! It was such a pain to no just fail the meld, but then have to dig around and try to try it all over again.

patchrelicitems

Thank you!

patchtomes

Nice, thank you!

patchlawgear

Figured that was going to happen.

patchretainer

This is a good thing!

Hmm?

patchcredits

Not sure what this means. Is it easier to get credits? Harder?

patchdf

Trying to wrap my head around what exactly this does.

patchcraft

Hm… what does this  mean? That the Souls will have stats on them now? Is that good?

Meh.

patchbard

That’s it? Really? I guess it’s time to hang up my bow, especially seeing a number of other DPS, including Machinist, just got buffs. Sucks for bards, probably last in place for DPS now.

patchdungeons

I’m not a fan of the Research Facility, the Arboretum, or Pharos Sirius Hard. I’m glad they finally put the Research Facility in a roulette because people need it for story completion. And I know people wanted more variety in the dungeon roulette. But lumping three dungeons I don’t like with two I do means I’ll be running this Roulette a lot less. It also means people need to get a higher ilvl before they can even start running the Level 60 Roulette considering the ilvl requirements for the Arboretum and PS Hard are much higher than Fractalreap.
