During the FFXIV Letter from the Producer live LXVII, Producer and Director Naoki Yoshida revealed new Tomestone gear resembling characters from FFIV. The new Tomestone gear will appear 4 weeks after the upcoming 6.0 patch. Players can acquire the new gear by exchanging two new types of Tomestones. [Thanks, Kumoricon on Twitter!]
Yoshida confirmed the addition of seven new Tomestone gear sets for various jobs, though some others were left unrevealed. All of the Tomestone gear sets resemble the outfits worn by their job counterpart characters from Final Fantasy IV. For example, the Paladin gear set resembles Cecil Harvey’s armor. The Bard gear set resembles Edward Chris von Muir, and the Ninja gear set resembles Edge Geraldine.
Players can obtain these gear sets by collecting new Allagan Tomestones of Aphorism. The Tomestones of Aphorism will not have a weekly cap. Additionally, Yoshida also revealed that the team is working on increasing the maximum number of glamour plates people can set as well as their armory chest slots.
Along with the addition of Savage raids four weeks after the launch of the 6.0 patch, players can also begin obtaining Allagan Tomestones of Astronomy. The Tomestones of Astronomy can be exchanged for higher-level late-game gear. Furthermore, Square Enix is also reducing the number of Tomestones required to obtain Savage raid weapons from 1,000 to 500.
You can check out all of the revealed FFIV Tomestone gear sets in the screenshots below.
Final Fantasy XIV is immediately available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. The Endwalker expansion has been delayed from its original November release, and will instead launch on December 7, 2021.
