6.3 FFXIV Island Sanctuary Update Will Include More Animals and Crops

6.3 FFXIV Island Sanctuary Update Will Include More Animals and Crops

People will see a lot change in the Final Fantasy XIV Island Sanctuary. It came up quite a bit during the Letter from the Producer Live 74. Notably, Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida promised things like more FFXIV Island Sanctuary animal and crops, as well as quality of life adjustments.

First, a few general additions came up. When 6.3 arrives, there will be more FFXIV Island Sanctuary animals, crops, islework handicrafts, item rewards, materials, ranks, structures, and visions. A number of these weren’t details. Also, Yoshida joked about possibly adding a Zenos scarecrow for people to put in their Island Sanctuaries.

While many of these additions weren’t update, the new wildlife were teased. Pictures of some of the new animals coming to the FFXIV Island Sanctuary in 6.3 appeared. One looks like the beastkin Yanxian Tiger, and another resembles a griffon. A Morbol Seedling, which resembles the minion people can get from The Aurum Vale, will also appear.

The bulk of changes will pertain to quality of life updates. Here’s a list of all the new features that came up during the slides shared during the FFXIV presentation.

  • Ability to save orchestrion settings
  • Improved Workshop interfaces (Agenda/Supply & Demand/Earnings Report)
  • Island visitors will now hear the islekeep’s orchestrion.
  • Notifications when visitors arrive at your island.
  • Option to collect all available yields/leavings at once.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC. The 6.3 patch will arrive in “early” January 2023.
