Square Enix are planning to release the first update patch for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, patch version 2.1, on December 17th, the publisher revealed in a recent video Q&A with producer Naoki Yoshida.


Among the many improvements and additions in the patch will be the ability to use beauty salons to change the appearance of your in-game character. Square fielded a few questions on this topic during the Q&A. Take a look at them below.


Q: Are there any limitations to the number of times a player can use the beauty salon?

A: No, there are no limitations.


Q: Besides hairstyles, what other things can you change?

A: Hair color, eyebrows, face paint, face paint color, facial hair, facial features, and tattoos. The team is also carefully adjusting skin color and eye color as they have racial aspects.


Q: Will there be more beauty salon options added in the future?

A: We currently plan on implementing additional options through our future patches. Please note that every patch will be focused on a specific race. In addition, players will be able to choose hairstyles from other races. Please stay tuned!

      First huh? I can’t really recommend this game to people. But, remember as long as you are having fun then don’t worry about the people who hate it or moaning about nerfs and what not. Enjoy it for yourself.

      • harmonyworld

        I plan to! ^_^

      • Vash bane

        haven’t got it yet and haven’t been to any forum (spoilers lol) nerfs? some classes are being nerfed? because of pvp( not a fan of pvp…..because i’m sort of a sore loser lol)?

    • Vash bane


      I guess we’re in the same boat ^_^

  • mojack411

    Soon I will be able to start playing again. I didn’t subscribe after the free trial because I got stupidly busy but I absolutely loved the game. Come December I’ll be able to play again hopefully.

    • James Darkly

      by free trial you mean before RR?

    • Brion Valkerion

      Same situation! Just in time to come back for a major patch -highfive!-

    • Masengan

      I’m waiting to play it on the PS4.

      • Teepo 64

        Seriously! My PS4 is still unopened.

    • MogCakes

      Same, my time was completely obliterated so I haven’t been able to enjoy the game.

  • Nightmesh

    As much as the combat system didn’t interest me I did love the look of my character and everyone elses. Hearing about this feature and knowing you don’t have to play for it, unlike every f2p game ever, is making me envious.

  • Kumaaa

    Out of all the things being added to 2.1, Siliconera focuses on the Beauty Solon…

    • That was the subject of this latest Q&A, aside from Crystal Towers. We’ve reported on other aspects of patches in the past.

  • AnimusVox

    Nice picture choice because….dat Yda <3
    Can't wait for the patch :3

  • No love for WoW ? :p

  • K I have to ask. Is this worth playing ’cause a friend of mine wants me to get into it with him…
