Chains of Promathia Level Restrictions to be Lifted

The Chains of Promathia expansion is both beloved and maligned by many a FFXI fan, loved because it offers some of the most interesting content in the game, and maligned due to the fact the content is spread across several different areas and instances that are all capped at differing level tiers (30, 40, 50, and 60) which presents a number of annoyances to players looking to complete the content. Those days will soon come to an end, however.
