Square Enix released Final Fantasy XIV patch 6.18 with a number of changes, adjustments, and resolved issues.
The long-awaited update adds the Data Center Travel system, which allows players to enter other worlds within the data center. Four new worlds were added to the European Chaos and Light data centers: Sagittarius, Phantom, Alpha, and Raiden. A number of restrictions are in place for players visiting another world.
Final Fantasy XIV patch 6.18 applies PvP adjustments across many jobs such as Paladin, Marauder/Warrior, Dark Knight, Gunbreaker, Ninja, Machinist, Dancer, Black Mage, Summoner, and Astrologian. The adjustments coincide with the beginning of Crystalline Conflict Season Two.
Additionally, a number of bug fixes were applied with the latest patch:
- An issue wherein contradictory dialogue appeared when speaking with F’lhaminn in Mor Dhona after completing the Ameliance custom delivery quests.
- An issue wherein contradictory dialogue appeared when speaking with Jesse in Rhalgr’s Reach after completing the quest “Goodbye, ε̆│\̆│Δ.”
- An issue when participating in Frontline campaigns wherein players under the effect of the white mage action Miracle of Nature were no longer affected by PvP damage modifiers.
- Other minor text issues have also been addressed.
