It's a lucky day for Final Fantasy XI
players all around, as the awaited February version update
has gone live. While Square-Enix
has been calling it a mini-update due to the lack of a major content push accompanying the patch, it's still packed with some pretty substantial improvements. Experience and skill gains have both been buffed significantly -- experience gains have been substantially improved outside of Abyssea, and skill gains will happen in larger amounts against weaker targets.
Several other improvements to quality of life have also been brought live, including the option to reclaim lost items from the completion of Treasures of Aht Urhgan
. Porter moogles are also expanding their lists of retained items, giving players a chance to free up more of their precious inventory spots. Final Fantasy XI
might not have added a great deal of new content with this update, but the full list of changes
makes it clear that a lot of older content has been vastly improved.
