The Final Fantasy XI forum has a new post with that takes a look at the forthcoming August update set to launch on August 12th. In it, players are informed that the Seekers of Adoulin missions are coming to a close and hints are dropped about cryptic alluvion skirmishes that send players into an ever-changing labyrinth. Additionally, new weapons are being added as well as weapon sets.
Speaking of equipment, we'll also be implementing a brand-new feature known as "equipment sets" that will allow you to swap out all of your equipment at once. This feature will launch with twenty sets so that we can monitor its stress on our hardware, but we plan on expanding this in the near future, pending that there are no major issues.
Additional content includes alter egos of young Excenmille and other NPCs from Wings of the Goddess; various job adjustments, including HP boosts to multiple jobs; and two new job point categories for all 22 jobs. We'll also be adding new objectives to Records of Eminence, making adjustments to existing content, and much, much more!
