Final Fantasy XIV 2.05 Hotfix Lands Tomorrow

October 13th, 2013 by Tony Garsow


Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will be receiving a hotfix tomorrow (unceremoniously referred to as Patch 2.05), with a few major updates to endgame regarding the acquisition of Tomestones to exchange for gear. Amdapor Keep is one of the most efficient ways to acquire Tomestones of Mythology, which creates a lot of congestion in the early days after the weekly Tomestone reset — with some reporting 20 to 40-minute wait times for Duty Finder to reserve an instance for the party.

In the list of major changes below, the team will be making adjustments to the number of dungeons where you can acquire Tomestomes of Mythology — as well as the amount that you’ll be able to earn. Whether this translates to an increase in the number of Tomestones per run or the weekly Tomestone cap has yet to be determined.

• Changes will be made to the way equipment is bound.
• Introducing additional servers and enhancements to act as a countermeasure against the congestion to enter “Amdapor Keep.”
• The difficulty for level 50 dungeons will be adjusted.
• The number of areas where you can acquire Allagan Tomestones of Philosophy and Mythology will be increased as well as the amount you can acquire.
• Adjustments to the spawn rate of monsters that drop diremite web and additional locations where Karakul can be found.
The amount of experience points that can be acquired on botanist and miner, as well the experience points that can be acquired from their fieldcraft leves, will be increased.
• User interface elements related to materia and target information will be adjusted.

Previously listed in the changes was the addition of a player cap for certain zones (likely as a countermeasure to Odin and Behemoth FATE congestion problems), but it seems that will come in a separate update later.

Scheduled maintenance to apply the hotfix will begin tomorrow at 11:00 PM Eastern US Standard Time and extend until 5:00 AM Tuesday morning.
