OH EM GEE – The Final Fantasy XIV “Soul Surrender” update is here and brings with it plenty of new content to experience! Adventurers will be able to continue the main scenario storyline, challenge a new raid – Alexander: The Creator – and do battle against Sophia, the Goddess from the Warring Triad. Plus you’ll explore new dungeons, test out new updates to PvP, and plenty more!
Venture forth and continue the main scenario
After a thousand years of bloodshed and sorrow, the shade of Nidhogg, rage incarnate, fell at last to the Warrior of Light. So it was that the Dragonsong War drew to a close, and the survivors, bloodied but unbowed, could begin to pick up the pieces. A new day dawns in Ishgard, and her champions may rest easy ─ if only for a moment. For every ending marks a new beginning.
Delve into two new dungeons – Xelphatol and the Great Gubal Library (Hard)
Explore Xelphatol and prevent the summoning of Garuda!
Get your library card ready because the Great Gubal Library (Hard) is here!
Experience challenging new raid content in Alexander: The Creator
Assemble a party of adventurers and tackle the final four areas in the Alexander high-level raid dungeon series. With both normal and savage difficulty levels available and all new equipment to get your hands on, there are plenty of reasons to dive in! Can you overcome Alexander: The Creator (Savage)?
Do battle with Sophia, the “Goddess,” the second foe from the Warring Triad!
Sophia threatens to break free from her fetters and restore the realm to a ruinous equilibrium – slay the stirring Goddess in the new trial, Containment Bay P1T6!
Updates to PvP: Custom matches, 1 vs 1 duels and spectator mode
Looking for practice before you head into the Feast, or maybe just a quick scrap with your friends? Then you’ll want to head to the new dueling arena at the Wolves’ Den Pier. As this is a non-instanced area, the only thing you need is a friend ─ or foe ─ willing to accept your challenge.
If you have two parties looking to duke it out, then sign up for a custom match and hop into the Feast without delay. Have a third group of friends who want to watch the spectacle? They’ll have front row seats with the new spectator mode! Whether you’re in the thick of the action or spectating from the sidelines, you’re sure to have fun with these new PvP options.
Side Story Quests
Follow Hildibrand – agent of enquiry, inspector extraordinaire – on his latest case and restore order to Saint Endalim’s Scholasticate in all-new quests.
Allagan Tomestones of Scripture
Collect new Allagan tomestones to exchange for powerful new gear.
Make way for new neighbours ─ apartments are here! Purchase a room and remodel it with a wide assortment of furnishings and ornaments from the carpet up to the very lights on the ceiling. Whether you’re relaxing with friends in the lobby, living it up in your private abode, or tending to your chocobo in the nearby stable, you’re sure to feel right at home with this newest addition to housing!
