Gear Score Incoming

Gear Score Incoming - Final Fantasy XIV - MMORPG.com

The Final Fantasy XIV community team has weighed in on a forum discussion on the official site to let players know that gear-locked content will be incoming soon.

The development team is aware that there are times when you cannot participate in content so easily and without worry, and I’d like to let you know future countermeasures we have planned to address this.

  1. Significantly reduce repair fees and the cost of dark matter
    While the focus will be placed on high-levels, we will be significantly lowering the overall fees for repair and the cost of dark matter.
     
  2. Addition of item level requirements for high-level dungeon participation
    We'll be adding a requirement to participate in high-level dungeons and hard mode primal battles that will make it so you need to have equipment above a certain item level equipped to participate. To coincide with this, we will be implementing a system that will display the average item level for your gear in the character window.
     
  3. Addition of a party recruitment window
    We'll be implementing a bulletin board type of system where you can recruit party members that are only on your world. When recruiting, you can indicate the dungeon you would like to do, the roles you are looking to recruit, the levels, etc. (We'll be announcing the details soon.)

We will be addressing #1 after the maintenance tomorrow, and #2 and #3 will be implemented after patch 2.1.     

Participate in the discussion on the Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn forum.

Thanks Hitman211 for the forum thread and information.
