Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.1 Is NieRly Upon Us, Check out What Else Is New



The main attraction of Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.1 “Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty”” is certainly the NieR: Automata collaboration raid, but here’s what else we’re getting later this month.


New Story – Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty




Hades is no more, and darkness at last returns to the mantle of night. But victory does not come without consequence. How will the Scions mend the wounds of this broken world? What nefarious forces would dare rend them anew?





New Dungeon – The Grand Cosmos




Long ago, on the far shore of the Source, a great palace was built by the elves─the Grand Cosmos, an edifice of such magnitude it was said to inspire envy in both the heavens for which it was named and the flowers that pervade its boundless gardens. As with so many wonders of the world that once was, its radiance quickly faded in the wake of the Flood, its halls falling silent, the throne sitting empty. That is, until the palace was given new purpose when a mage claimed it as their sanctuary, their only company being solace, solitude, and the legion of familiars barring entrance to any foolish enough to seek an audience.


New Game+



Take a trip down memory lane to revisit previously completed quests, cutscenes, dialogue, and battles not found in the Unending Journey, all while keeping your current character and level. Patch 5.1 includes the main scenario quests for Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers, allowing you to relive all your favorite moments.




Fellowships offer a new way for adventurers with common interests to band together. Join up to 10 fellowships on your data center, or make your own and invite up to 1,000 players. Use them to announce community events, recruit for raids and dungeons, relay information to track down elite marks, and more!
