Final Fantasy XIV Update 8.54 Patch Notes

  • The following adjustments have been made to the Critical Engagements in Bozjan Southern Front.
    • The recruitment time for Castrum Lacus Litore has been extended from 1 minute to 6 minutes.
      In Kill It with Fire, visual patterns have been added to the Dead Leaves’ damage area to improve color blind support.
  • The following issues have been addressed.
    • Under certain conditions, NPCs were not displayed in the cut scene for “Build on the Stone” in New Game+ mode.
    • In Bozjan Southern Front, monsters that were moving back to their own territory after moving too far away would attack players while moving.
    • In Bozjan Southern Front, some mechanics in the Critical Engagement “The Fires of War” were not functioning as intended.
    • In rare cases, if you died while registering a lost action in Bozjan Southern Front, you would lose said action.
    • The effect “Attributes and item level vary according to class/job and current level when equipped” on the Bozjan earring did not activate.
    • The description for Bozjan earring was “Increases EXP earned by 30% when level 80 and below.”
      • The correct description should have been “Increases EXP earned by 10% when level 80 and below.”. The effect “Increases EXP earned by 10% when level 80 and below” was activated in a HotFix performed on Oct. 15, 2020.
  • In Bozjan Southern Front, countermeasures have been implemented for the following issue:
    •  The monster Feathered Rainbow in the Skirmish “Waste the Rainbow” sometimes moved out of the battle area, making it impossible to complete.
    • As this issue requires some time to address, we have implemented a temporary measure that reduces this occurrence.
