While the Gold Saucer and its many activities are the main attraction of the Patch 2.51 update, there are several other additions that come with the new version update.

The above are two new aesthetician hairstyles that will be added.


One big addition is from the rewards for the quest “The Gift of the Archmagus”. Previously, the weekly quest rewarded players with an Allagan Catalyst, along with a Carboncoat used to upgrade Ironworks accessories.


Carbontwine, which is used to upgrade Ironworks armor, was previously only available through the Final Coil of Bahamut. Now, these items will be added to the weekly quest, that will only require you to run the three 24-man raids, instead.
