Adventurers of Final Fantasy XIV will get to try out the new Blue Mage job and more when Patch 4.5 launches next month. Square Enix teased more of what’s to come with its latest batch of screenshots and info from its official website.
Main Scenario – A Requiem for Heroes (Part 1)
War looms once again. Scarcely has Ala Mhigo taken its first breath of freedom when the Empire reaches out with ironclad fingers to reclaim the bloodied nation. Meanwhile, one after another, the Scions fall victim to an incurable slumber, leaving ever fewer of their number to contend with a rapidly disintegrating peace and the mystery of the voice which haunts them…
New Job – Blue Mage
A so-called mage of rather questionable character claims to have mastered an outlandish form of spellcasting that resembles neither black nor white magic during his voyage to the New World. Allegedly, anyone who purchases one of his soul crystals can learn to mimic the aetherial magicks of wild creatures. But can he be trusted, or is he merely a con artist looking to make a quick gil?
Blue Magic Spellbook
The world is full of wondrous techniques for blue mages to learn, and this handy spellbook will prove indispensible. Find out where to seek new magic and view a wealth of information for spells you have already acquired.
The Masked Carnivale
A series of events exclusively for blue mages, the Masked Carnivale offers a range of opponents on which to test your skills, earning rewards in the process.
New Dungeon – The Ghimlyt Dark
For those who dare travel twixt Aldenard and Ilsabard, there is but one path, and it leads through Ghimlyt. A confluence of harsh terrain and aetheroclimatic conditions have shrouded the land in perpetual darkness, and it is here the decisive battle for Eorzea begins. But can the Warrior of Light prevail in this land long since lost to the light?
New Dungeon Gear
Final Fantasy XIV is available on PlayStation 4 and PC. Patch 4.5 is expected to launch in early January 2019.
