Final Fantasy XIV keeps on truckin'. Its Patch 6.05 includes the Savage version of the Pandæmonium raid, the new Excitatron 6000 treasure dungeon, and the introduction to the Allagan tomestones of astronomy. That's not a ton of things but it's also only a .05 patch, so the massive patches will have to wait a few months down the road.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've doubtlessly heard of how well Final Fantasy XIV has been doing recently. Endwalker launched on December 7 to massive numbers and queues, to the extent that Square Enix stopped selling copies because the servers were burning down. While it is rare to see-especially in a MMORPG these days-it is indeed possible to be too successful.
On that note, let's see what Square Enix has in store for us in Patch 6.05, shall we?
What's in Final Fantasy XIV's Patch 6.05?
For those that like treasure, you're in luck: The Excitatron 6000 can now be accessed after finding and opening treasure coffers from kumbhiraskin treasure maps. Once inside, you'll have a chance to both test your luck and obtain priceless treasure.
Speaking of priceless treasure, you'll be able to earn some phat l00ts in the Savage version of the Pandæmonium raid that's just opening now. To actually get into the raid you'll have to talk to "Nemjiji in Labyrinthos (X:8.4 Y:27.4) with a level 90 Disciple of War or Magic after completing the quest "Who Wards the Warders.""
If that still isn't enough loot for you, Allagan tomestones of astronomy have been added to the game with Patch 6.05. You'll only be able to obtain 450 tomestones of astronomy per week and carry a maximum of 2,000. This might not seem like much, the number of tomestones required to weapons exchange has been reduced from 1,000 to 500, so huzzah!
As for other things added to the game, there's a bunch. New items, recipes, master recipes, mounts, minions, achievements and titles, and music can be found in-game. There's also new orchestrion rolls and furnishings from the FFXIV Furnishing Design Contest have been added. So, if you won the contest you'll be able to see your stuff in-game, which is pretty neat.
