  • Japan Standard Time

[Event-Related]

  • A new massively multiplayer battlefield, Einherjar, has been introduced.
Related Information>>
  • The following changes have been made to chocobo raising and chocobo racing:
    1. Players can now request three different versions of their chocobos' daily updates.
      - Hear a detailed report:
      All cutscenes play while the VCS trainer gives a full report.
      - Hear a brief report:
      The VCS trainer gives a full report (cutscenes are not shown).
      - Skip the report:
      Both VCS trainer report and all accompanying cutscenes are not shown.
      • Important scenes, such as when a chocobo hatches, will be shown even if a condensed update is requested.
    2. Players can now feed their chocobos up to 4 items (food, medicine, etc.) at once. An update on how full the chocobo is will be given by the VCS trainer once, after the bird has eaten all the items. The following is the order in which chocobos will eat items when traded several different varieties at once:
      - First: Items that cure status ailments (gausebit wildgrass, etc.)
      - Second: Chocolixirs
      - Third: Items that affect attributes (San d'Orian carrot, etc.)
      - Fourth: Chocobo food (Gysahl greens, etc.)
      • Only one chocotonic can be traded at a time. If a chocotonic is traded at the same time as other items, the chocobo will only drink the tonic and the remaining items will be returned to their owner.
    3. An issue where the order in which chocobos crossed the finish line differed from the standings displayed after a race has been addressed.
  • Mog Locker capacity can now be increased to a maximum of 80 slots.
