Final Fantasy XIV 6.18 Update

With the next Final Fantasy XIV Live Letter set to take place on July 1, offering players their first look at what’s to come in 6.2, it makes sense that we’ll be seeing the last update on the 6.1 roadmap soon. The last thing on the roadmap is datacenter travel, which has been scheduled to arrive in the 6.18 patch for a while now.

As long as the roadmap has been available, that’s been the only thing listed for 6.18, but obviously that’s not the only thing coming in the update. Today, Square Enix dropped three new posts on the XIV news page providing info on other things players can expect when the patch hits on July 5. Two of these are still data center related and one is the end of the first season of Crystalline Conflict.

First up, the company is adding a new data center in Japan. Bearing the name Meteor, this data center will be the new home of specific existing worlds. The worlds in question aren’t listed on the post, but the post details what to expect should a player be in one of the worlds being moved. First, they’re shutting down the Home World Transfer Service until they know that everything’s good. This means that both Japanese and European data center expansions are complete and that they know the Data Center Travel system is functioning properly. After that, all players on the Japanese server will be allowed to transfer servers for free over the next two weeks. Anyone doing that will want to read the post detailing the data center addition fully, as there’s important information about the process.

Europe is also getting some expansion love, but rather than a whole new data center that worlds will be moved to, two data centers are having new worlds added. The Chaos data center will be adding Sagittarius and Phantom while the Light data center will add Alpha and Raiden. As is always the case, Square Enix will offer players bonuses for creating a character or transferring to these new worlds. Once again, hit up the post in question if you’d like to take advantage of these bonuses.

Finally, PvPers...Season 1 of Crystalline Conflict is coming to an end. On July 5 the rankings will stop updating, rewards will be distributed, and Season 2 will kick-off. Get ready for that final push if you want all the goodies for the season. Also do it soon because when Season 2 kicks off, you’ll start out five risers below your final placement in Season 1.
