FFXIV Dawntrail Benchmark Tool Release Date and Fantasia Update Detailed

While the point of the Final Fantasy XIV Letter from the Producer Live LXXXI was to go over jobs, Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida and Global Community Producer Toshio “Foxclon” Murouchi also discussed the FFXIV Dawntrail Benchmark Tool update, Fantasia, and suggested the updated tool release date could be May 30, 2024 or May 31, 2024. Yoshida noted that there was “quite a lot to address,” “they will address as much as possible,” but did show how the lighting changed and confirm the team will try and catch as much as possible during the Q&A process.

The release date discussion built upon Yoshida’s initial information about the FFXIV Dawntrail Benchmark Tool update release window. Back then, he said it could be around May 23, 2024. This was dependent on the Q&A and development process. The new update is the end of May 2024. However, Yoshida said this could get pushed past the weekend, which would put it sometime in June and perhaps around June 3, 2024 or later.

One of the things that came up during this section involved the Miqo’te canine teeth that look like fangs. Yoshida called for feedback about how the teeth look. Before and after images of the male and female Miqo’te were shared to offer examples of the distinction between the two. 

Yoshida also brought up the Fantasia potion during the update on the FFXIV Dawntrail Benchmark Tool. Upon release of 7.0 Dawntrail, people will be able to take a quest from an NPC in Ul’dah to get a free Fantasia. This is to help newcomers learn what the potion does, as well as help existing players fine-tune characters after the update. It will apparently have a low level requirement.

Within 60 minutes of playtime after using Fantasia, if you want to make adjustments to your character creation, you can after 7.0. Yoshida pointed out will be designed to ensure players’ characters look exactly how they wanted after using the creator. There’s no limitation on how many times you can go back and change, as long as it is within 60 playtime minutes of using Fantasia in FFXIV

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and the Dawntrail expansion debuts on July 2, 2024.
