Patch 4.01 is out for Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, and it’s pretty cool. You can find the full patch notes here. I’ll also try to include some relevant bits below.
Additions to Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood include a new Chronicles of the New Era quest called ‘The Hunt for Omega’ (with a level 70 requirement), and a new raid dungeon called Omega: Deltascape (also level 70). Expect new items and mounts as well. A handful of class abilities have been adjusted for the Bard, Dark Knight, Marauder/Warrior, Ninja, and Gladiator/Paladin.
Actions and traits have been adjusted as follows:
|Savage Blade||Enmity effect has been increased.|
|Flash||Enmity effect has been increased.|
|Heavy Swing||TP cost has been reduced from 70 to 60.|
|Skull Sunder||Enmity effect has been increased.|
|Overpower||Enmity effect has been increased.|
|Spinning Slash||Enmity effect has been increased.|
|Unleash||Enmity effect has been increased.|
|Bloodspiller||Potency has been increased from 380 to 400.
Dark arts potency has been increased from 520 to 540.
|Bhavacakra||Potency increased from 550 to 600.|
|Troubadour||Now effects both self and nearby party members.|
Here are the details for the new dungeon:
|Level Requirement||Disciple of War or Magic level 70|
|Item Level Requirement||Average item level 295 or above|
|Party Size||Eight players|
|Time Limit||90 minutes|
* Players can queue solo via the Duty Finder after unlocking the raid.
Into the Deltascape
- Disciple of War or Magic level 70
- The Interdimensional Rift (X:17.3 Y:18.9)
- Players must first complete the quest “The Hunt for Omega.”
Treasure coffers that appear upon completing Omega: Deltascape will not yield gear, but instead yield tokens that can be traded for gear of your choosing.
You can only receive one token per version (area) each week. In the event you are awarded a token from the loot list, you relinquish your right to vie for all remaining tokens regardless of whether you selected Need or Greed. Also note that there is no weekly restriction on entering Omega: Deltascape.
* Reward eligibility is reset every Tuesday at 8:00 (GMT) / 9:00 (BST).
By speaking with Gelfradus in Rhalgr’s Reach (X:13.7 Y:12.0), players can exchange tokens obtained from Omega: Deltascape for corresponding gear.
|Item Type||Required Token / Number of Tokens|
|Head||Deltascape Lens x 2|
|Body||Deltascape Shaft x 4|
|Hands||Deltascape Crank x 2|
|Waist||Deltascape Chain x 1|
|Legs||Deltascape Spring x 4|
|Feet||Deltascape Pedal x 2|
|Accessories||Deltascape Bolt x 1|
Players will also receive a Deltascape crystalloid once per week after completing Deltascape V4.0. Deltascape crystalloids can be exchanged for early model tomestones by speaking with the NPC Gelfradus in Rhalgr’s Reach (X:13.7 Y:12.0). Early model tomestones are used in the purchase of new weapons.
* Reward eligibility will be reset every Tuesday at 8:00 (GMT) / 9:00 (BST).
* Weapons will be available for exchange after the introduction of Allagan tomestones of creation, which are scheduled to be released two weeks after patch 4.01.
