Update 6.05 has arrived for Final Fantasy XIV, adding Endwalker’s first Savage raids and much more. This is the second patch to hit Final Fantasy XIV since the launch of the Endwalker expansion one month ago, and this patch contains most of the major new additions that players have been waiting for since the expansion dropped. While Patch 6.01 added the normal version of Pandaemonium: Asphodelos, Patch 6.05 brings the Savage version of Asphodelos along with a new Treasure Dungeon, new Allagan tomestones, new gear, and much more. Here’s everything new with Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.05.
