Final Fantasy XIV Patch 3.1 Out Now, The Conclusion to Heavensward and Many New Additions


Final Fantasy XIV Heavensward is also going to it's logical conclusion with the introduction of Patch 3.1. This will be the last large story content update. And this one has a lot of nice incentives for players inside.

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward gets updated to 3.1 with new hairstyles, a new raid and bizarre new hairstyles.

As Goes Light, So Goes Darkness is the final chapter in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. This update continues the main story, following the nation of Ishgard in the wake of the Warrior of Light’s return from Azys Lla. Also inside are a number of interesting new additions to keep historic players interested and coming back for more.

  • Void Ark: The new 24-player alliance raid invites adventures to do battle on a haunted vessel while unraveling the mystery surrounding it.
  • Exploratory Missions: Embark on missions that task adventurers to explore far-off islands by way of airship and battle monsters in an open field, allowing them to unearth rare gear and items.
  • Lord of Verminion: A brand-new real-time strategy attraction at the Manderville Gold Saucer where players can use their minions to battle it out against other players, or take on challenges against boss minions.
  • Two high-level dungeons: Saint Mocianne’s Arboretum and Pharos Sirius (Hard).
  • Vanu Vanu beast tribe quests offer insight into the lives of the Zundu tribe and feature a new “quest sync” system to offer rewards and challenges equivalent to the player level at which they are accepted.
  • The Minstrel’s Ballad: Thordan’s Reign: Face off against Thordan and his twelve knights once more in this enhanced-difficulty version of the battle, offering players a greater challenge.
  • The ability to fly will be granted to a number of existing ground mounts, including Magitek armor.
  • New hairstyles, and a host of other great new things.

The full patch notes are enormous and can be found here. It looks like this will continue the tradition of great story-telling combined with fantastical creatures and lands. Will this be a fitting end for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward though?
