6 Known Issues With FFXIV Dawntrail and 7.0 Confirmed

When a new update and expansion launches for an MMO like Final Fantasy XIV, problems can also come up. As of the June 28, 2024 early access launch of FFXIV Dawntrail, Square Enix confirmed it is aware of multiple known issues with the expansionand 7.0 and offered insights on how to deal with them.

The first of the three issues has to do with HUD currency settings. Specifically, it has to do with the Allagan Tomestone of Comedy. It was removed as an option ahead of the 7.0 patch for FFXIV. So if people had it set as an option, it now shows as black in the HUD due to no longer existing. In the case of this problem, someone can fix it by updating the currency settings. 

The second issue is also one that can be addressed by the player if they handle it a certain way. If someone responds when you use the Tell subcommand, the original player’s name won’t come up. In the Lodestone announcement, Square Enix said to use the text command. 

The third known issue for FFXIV Dawntrail and 7.0 has to do with the UI and characters now showing up. Again, Square Enix noted that this is a problem that could potentially be fixed on the player’s end if they are playing on a computer. It said to try only running the MMORPG. However, in the case of those playing on a console or who still experience the issue, they will need to wait for the developer to address the problem. 

One of the most problematic of the known issues in FFXIV Dawntrail and 7.0 has to do with the Syrcus Tower Alliance Raid. Those who challenge it may be unable to complete it through no fault of their own. This is an older raid from the 2.0 series of patches, and the problem comes up when facing the third boss Amon. Square Enix didn’t explain how this can occur, and some people might not encounter the issue.

Syrcus Tower isn’t the only situation with issues. The Alliance Raid is also victim to a problem where ice-related mechanics aren’t working. The Delubrum Reginae (Savage) Duty, The Minstrel’s Ballad: Shinryu’s Domain Trial, and Dragonsong’s Reprise (Ultimate) Ultimate Raid are all affected by this bug. 

Finally, the last known problem for the moment is limited to the Xbox Series X version of the MMORPG. There’s currently a freezing problem. While it can happen in apparently any areas, Square Enix specifically also cited city Aetheryte points as being an issue.

Final Fantasy XIV and its Dawntrail expansion are now in early access on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X and PC, and the full Dawntrail launch starts on July 2, 2024.
