Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Patch 2.38 debuts today, and we have a summary of all the major changes coming to Eorzea. The next tier of the Saga of the Zodiac Weapons quest is now available and Personal Housing makes its debut. Adjustments to the ways you can obtain items to un-weather Weathered gear has also been revealed. Read on below for more:

Saga of the Zodiac Weapons:
• The next tier of the Saga of the Zodiac Weapon chain is called Nexus, and will involve Soulglazing your Relic.
• Once your Relic Novus is Soulglazed, you must raise its “attunement level” by completion of “various activities”; at the maximum level, you will be able to upgrade to Relic Nexus.
• Relic Nexus have an item level of 115, the highest currently in the game.
• You have a chance of obtaining Alexandrite from FATEs by equipping either Relic Novus or Relic Nexus.
• Once a Relic is Soulglazed, you can obtain new Sphere Scrolls to re-customize the weapon’s stats chosen in completing the Novus tier.

Dungeons & Raids:
• You can now queue for The Striking Tree (Extreme) via the Duty Finder.
• The rings obtained from The Striking Tree (Extreme) have had their item level boosted from 100 to 110.
• One Unidentified Allagan Tomestone is now guaranteed to drop in treasure chests obtained from defeating Rafflesia in Turn 1 of the Second Coil of Bahamut, or by defeating Amon and Xande in Syrcus Tower.
• One Oil of Time is now guaranteed to drop in treasure chests obtained from defeating Rafflesia in Turn 1 of the Second Coil of Bahamut, or by defeating Amon or Xande in Syrcus Tower.
• One Sands of Time is now guaranteed to drop in treasure chests obtained from defeating Melusine in Turn 2 of the Second Coil of Bahamut; two Sands of Time are now guaranteed to drop in treasure chests obtained from defeating Xande in Syrcus Tower.

Personal Housing:
• Individual players can now buy plots of land for a house, no Free Company is needed.
• Prices for plots have been revealed, and a seventh and eighth ward will be added.
Director/producer Naoki Yoshida has addressed the availability of personal plots in a devpost on the official forums (click here to read). He details that rather than delay the feature until 2.4, two new wards have been added and as a result availability may be low until then. Come the new patch, many new wards will be available for individual players to purchase plots.
• You can now ride mounts in housing districts.

PvP:
• For balancing purposes, Cleric Stance will no longer be usable in PvP; additional changes will arrive with Rogue and Ninja in Patch 2.4.
• The Carteneau Flats will have minor changes to the map.
• PvP actions are now equipped automatically when changing your class or job.
• An issue in Frontlines where killing a pet would give five tactical rating points has been fixed.

Miscellaneous:
• Four new Delivery Moogle quests have been added.
• A Item Comparison feature has been added.
• The background music in Pharos Sirius has been changed (likely Soken’s extended loop from the 14-hour Anniversary stream).
• Emotes /hug and /slap have been added.
• A new /changepose has been added for sheathed and unsheathed weapon status.
• Recipe shortcuts have been added to the Crafting Log, and you’ll also be able to set recipes to your hotbar.
• A new Visual Alert system has been added for the hearing impaired, where different sounds are visualized on screen as colored waveforms. This feature can be activated in the Character Configuration menu.
• Previous hairstyles that are accessible through the Aesthetician will now be available in character/retainer creation.
• Revenant’s Toll will have new structures as part of ongoing visual changes.
