    New FFXI Version Update Is Here!

    Post by Gennadi on Mon Mar 26, 2012 5:01 pm

    Here is all the goodies that we will be getting for the new update.


    Ill post just the Main Items and leave out all the little details.

    New Battle System: Legion
    Overview
    Legion is a new battle system intended to challenge high-level adventurers in alliances of eighteen to thirty-six combatants. Legion will feature unique battlefields in which combatants will be pitted against legions of formidable high-level notorious monsters (HNMs). Slay as many foes as possible within the thirty-minute time limit to reap a host of exciting rewards!
     
    Requirements
    Main job of level 75 or above
    Three to thirty-six participants
     
    Participating in Legion
    Speak to Saarlan in Rolanberry Fields (J-5) and pay the participation fee of 360,000 gil to receive the “Legion tome page” key item.
    *Only one representative from your alliance need possess this key item.
    With the key item in your possession, speak to Mayuyu in the same area and choose your desired battlefield and capacity (eighteen or thirty-six combatants). After your selections are confirmed, you will receive a Legion pass.
    *As a single Legion pass can transport up to eighteen players, larger groups will receive two passes.
    *Legion passes will be valid for five minutes (Earth time) after issuance.
    Have your alliance leader trade the issued pass to the Legion Tome to enter the Legion entrance lobby.
    Make sure to configure your alliance as desired before trading the pass. Should any members be lower than level 75, your alliance will be refused entry.
    *For groups larger than eighteen, it will be necessary to trade the extra Legion pass to the leader of your second alliance or party.
    From the lobby, examine the Legion Portal or simply wait for the allotted time to elapse. You will be transported to the battlefield to commence the fight!
     
    Spoils of War
    Each HNM defeated will yield items and Legion points.
    Items will be placed in a treasure pool to be lotted on by all participants.
    Loot quality and Legion point rewards will increase the more foes you slay.
    Legion points may be redeemed with Saarlan for a variety of rewards.



    New Voidwatch Areas Being Added

    Tavnazia Jurisdiction added
    Aht Urhgan Jurisdiction added
    New varieties of atmacite, abyssite, and periapts have been added.


    Assault: Nyzul Isle Uncharted Region Adjustments

    Upon entering, players will be asked to select floor 20, 40, 60, 80, or 100 as their ultimate destination.

    The player will not be sent, nor be able to travel to sections beyond the floor specified.

    Upon vanquishing the NMs on the following floors a set number of times (see table), players will receive a key item that may be redeemed for a piece of equipment.

    Floor Key Item Required Victories
    20 Bronze Astrarium 25
    40 Silver Astrarium 25
    60 Mythril Astrarium 25
    80 Gold Astrarium 25
    100 Platinum Astrarium 1

    I really like this new option for Nyzul Isle. It gives a unique way of getting gear drops with points.



    Walk of Echoes Adjustments
    Players need no longer wait to receive the Kupofried's Medallion key item.
    Temporary items are now obtainable upon entering a Walk.
    *Players will receive a random selection of five or so items.
    Area attacks unleashed by bosses now deal less damage.
    Combat and magic skills will now increase.

    We can add WOE to our future runs with this new update making it easier to participate.


    Besieged Adjustments
    Post-KO weakness duration has been reduced from five minutes to one.
    Players will now be eligible to receive experience after being raised even if they were KO'd when the battle concluded.

    Finally all those people that got killed 1.5 seconds before the end of beseiged can rejoice they will get exp!!! bounce


    Dynamis Adjustment
    Level restrictions no longer apply when beginning a Confrontation in the following areas:
    Dynamis - San d'Oria / Dynamis - Bastok / Dynamis - Windurst / Dyanmis – Beaucedine / Dynamis - Xarcabard

    Im not quite sure what they mean by this , maybe someone can help me out here
