FFXIV Patch 6.3 Job Adjustments Target Paladin

Final Fantasy XIV version 6.3 will include some new tweaks and updates for player Jobs, as well as new content for those who want to test their skills against other players. The FFXIV  Job Adjustments were announced in the latest Letter From the Producer Live broadcast, and it noted the Paladin will get a lot of attention.

According to Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida, the team plans to make adjustments for various Jobs with the FFXIV Patch 6.3 cycle. These will affect performance in both PVP and PVE content. They don’t plan any large-scale changes, but they do intend to pay special attention to the Paladin Job. According to Yoshida, the Paladin’s rotation — the sequence and timing with which a player uses its abilities for maximum effectiveness — will be “heavily” revised. That means that Paladins could soon have to change the way they play, depending on what Job Adjustments are in store for FFXIV Patch 6.3.

The team will also debut the FFXIV PVP Series 3 with Patch 6.3, as well as the fifth season of the Crystalline Conflict PVP mode. The newest PVP mode in the game, Crystalline Conflict is a team-based mode where players escort a crystal to the opposing side of the map, fighting opposing players trying to do the same. Unlike the older PVP modes, Crystalline Conflict uses a Seasonal pattern, and a separate currency with different rewards.

Patch 6.3 will also introduce a new Crystalline Conflict map, inspired by the aesthetic of Kugane Castle from FFXIV: Stormblood.

Final Fantasy XIV is available on PS4, PS5, and PC. Patch 6.3 will arrive in early January 2023.
