≪February 10, 2017 (JST) Version Update≫
(quick link to new item details)

New routes containing normal monsters have been added to Omen!

Further combat adjustments include a rebalancing of enfeebling magic, songs, and geomancy colures in addition to a rebalancing of monster attributes in line with that change. Two new quests have also been added: one to create new synthesis guild equipment known as Escutcheons and one that provides another look in post-mission Adoulin via Records of Eminence!

Read on for details!

Event-related

  • A new quest has been added.
170210 01
Players must speak with Ploh Trishbahk in Eastern Adoulin (K-9) after meeting the following prerequisites to receive the quest.
  • Have completed the quest The Ygnas Directive 4, with the clock passing midnight (Vana'diel time) after it has been completed.
  • A quest for equipment known as Escutcheons has been added.
Escutcheons are shields jointly developed by synthesis guilds and the inventor's coalition which draw forth the true craftsmanship skills of players.
Escutcheons are improved by meeting objectives laid out by each guild's guildmaster.
* Completing the escutcheon upgrade process requires the player to see the questline out to its end; the questline will be rolled out in future version updates.
* Players cannot forfeit their corresponding guild rank while the upgrade in is progress.
Players must speak to Mewk Chorosap in Port Jeuno (G-8) once they have achieved a rank of Expert or above in any guild skill other than fishing.
Upgrading escutcheons requires special craftsman's crystals and other materials.
  • Craftsman's Crystals
Craftsman's crystals are new items required for upgrading escutcheons, and can be earned by trading an escutcheon that has reached 100% craftsmanship to the requisite guild master. An escutcheon's craftsmanship increases when a synthesis or the corresponding skill is performed while the shield is equipped.
* Craftsmanship will decrease by a certain amount when the shield is traded, but players will be able to improve it again to receive more crystals.

  • Upgrade Materials
Materials used to upgrade escutcheons may be purchased in exchange for craftsman points. Craftsman points are earned by using analysis crystals to perform a "quality value" synthesis and delivering the item to the appropriate guild. Analysis crystals can be purchased in exchange for guild points by players whose skill is expert or above. "Quality value" is a figure that represents the quality of an item synthesized using various synthesis sets and is affected by item quality and required synthesis skill rank.
Synthesis set recipes may be checked at and delivered to the following NPCs.
