Latest Final Fantasy XIV patch adds new quests
Final Fantasy XIV Patch 3.1: As Goes Light, So Goes Darkness arrived yesterday, and with it came a few new additions to the game. In addition to continuing the main scenario, Patch 3.1 adds a 24-man raid set on the Void Ark. As the PlayStation blog announcement explains:
Traveling the skies for times untold, the massive Void Ark was meant to help an ancient civilization to flee from an unknown threat. Now a ghost ship, rumors of its existence have made the rounds among the sky pirates — and with them stories about it carrying an unknown power.
Along with this new raid comes the addition of exploratory missions, a new dungeon called Saint Mocianne's Arboretum (described as a "smorgasbord of flora and fauna from all over the realm" that has "developed a rather threatening life of its own"), and a new real-time strategy game called Lord of Verminion. Also included is "The Minstrel’s Ballad: Thordan’s Reign":
A new song of heroes facing an immense threat, and it may bring back memories for all you old-time Final Fantasy fans. Ten strikes, ten times certain death — how will our heroes master this challenge against the Knights of the Round and escape the Ultimate End? Face this epic challenge, spiced up by the wandering minstrel!
