April 11th, 2015 by Tony Garsow

During the twentieth Letter from the Producer Live, Final Fantasy XIV director and producer Naoki Yoshida debuted the opening cinematic for the Heavensward expansion and important new updates. Below is a summary of the major points:

– The Heavensward main scenario will offer around 50 hours of gameplay – post-release patches will continue to add more.
– New job quests for existing jobs 50-60, combat, gathering, and crafting.
– New zones are 50-100% larger than zones in A Realm Reborn. There are nine new areas including Ishgard & Floating Continent.
– Flying mounts are unrestricted in taking off and landing. Once you “attune” to an area, you can fly there.

– Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist start at Lv. 30.
– Multiple new actions for each job have been added. Lv. 3 Limit Break animations aren’t shared, will be unique for each job.
– Regarding new endgame currency, Allagan Tomestones of Law will have no weekly cap. Allagan Tomestones of Esoterics will.
– Tier V materia in the final stages of planning.

– A specialist system for crafters will be added for Lv. 55~ You can spec in three jobs, and use “scrips” to change. There are spec actions.
– You can become Lv. 60 in all crafters without specializing.
– At Lv. 60, gatherer classes can discover hidden nodes by using “divine favors” through a “Favor System”. They’re available for a limited time, and are obtained by trading “scrips”. You can collect Red and Blue Scrips at Lv. 60 as a currency for gatherers/crafters. Blue Scrips have a weekly limit.

– New high-level levequests, FATEs, large-scale FATEs, field enemies, and elite marks have been added.
– 8 new instanced dungeons.
– Ravana and Bismarck primals will have a normal and hard mode.
– New Frontline area, rule sets, and PVP rewards.

– In Free Company Workshops you can craft housing or craft airships.
– An expansion of the duty finder will allow you to challenge duties with smaller parties. New duty roulette types/conditions.
– New loot systems called “Lootmaster” and “All Greed” have been added for normal mode & hard mode raids.
Flames of Truth, a new trailer that features new footage from The Final Coil of Bahamut, has been publicly released in the video above.
