Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.55

Dawntrail is so close, yet so far away…but a new patch has arrived!

Final Fantasy XIV’s Patch 6.55 has players take on a new adventure as the conflict in the Thirteenth concludes. The MMORPG's update introduces a new trial, tribal alliance quests, and the continuation of side story quests. Housing receives new furnishings, orchestrion rolls, and prizes at the Manderville Gold Saucer, while miscellaneous updates include island sanctuary pop-up messages and new emotes.

The battle system undergoes adjustments, with new quests requiring registration of expansion packs, and the main scenario quests "Endwalker - Part 3" and "Endwalker - Part 4" are introduced. Side story quests like "Somehow Further Hildibrand Adventures" and "Tataru's Grand Endeavor" continue, while new tribal alliance quests add to the storyline. New Game+ receives additional chapters too.

Adjustments were made to the PvP system as well for various jobs, and the Frontline changes in job damage output, limit gauge fill rates, and adjustments to the Fields of Glory (Shatter) mechanics. There’s also new items, recipes, big fish, mounts, chocobo barding, fashion accessories, and achievements. And server congestion is addressed with multiple instances for Old Sharlayan. Numerous bug fixes and improvements, such as graphical and sound issues, are part of Patch 6.55 as well.

Last but not least, the Maiden’s Rhapsody collaboration event returns to the MMORPG from January 22 to February 5, inviting players to discover the peculiar twist of fate that brought a hero of Vana'diel to their realm.
