The Duty List allows players to complete a quest from start to finish without needing to refer to the journal, as quest objectives and destinations can be easily confirmed through this new feature. Combat is also improved to be more intense and varied—weapon skills can be used to initiate battle, and spells can be cast from further away.


Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is currently in its fourth alpha-testing phase. You can find more details of the alpha test and how things have been progressing in this previous report.
