Monsters, Moogles, and Mentors Highlight Final Fantasy XI's New Update
Final Fantasy XI is getting new notorious monsters and a slew of new quests, producer Akihiko Matsui said. This month sees Square Enix add a dual-pronged ambuscade, a new chapter for the Voracious Resurgence, and more.
A new, two-part ambuscade pits players against a Mamool Ja and the Bomb family of monsters to earn special bonuses. Figuring out what those bonuses are isn't quite so straightforward, though, and Matsui said it will take some work.
The Voracious Resurgence gets new quests in the first portion of Part Two, which takes place in Windurst.
Final Fantasy XI's Assist system is getting an overhaul. Square Enix is refining mentor qualifications to ensure new players get paired with the right folks who can lend a happy, helping hand.
Finally, the Record of Eminence has updated objectives for the month, and there's the usual suite of new items added over the course of the month.
Final Fantasy XIV might be Square Enix's flagship online game at the moment with the bulk of the new content, but it seems Square Enix plans on keeping Final Fantasy XI alive and well for the foreseeable future. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Final Fantasy XI news as it develops.
