Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.25 Now Live

New quest series, and more

By Poorna Shankar on April 07, 2020 | News | 0

Patch 5.25 for Final Fantasy XIV is now live. Here are the details.

The new patch introduces a new quest series, providing upgradeable equipment. The Save the Queen: Blades of Gunnhildr has been added, in addition to Skysteel Tool Quests. New furnishing from the design contest has been added to the game.

The resistance weapon quest line has been added as well,

“As players advance through the resistance weapons quests, they will be able to obtain job-specific weapons which can be enhanced as they progress. To complete this quest, players must also undertake a lengthy instanced duty. In the event you are defeated by one of its bosses, your progression in the duty will be saved, allowing you to challenge them again immediately rather than start from the beginning.”

Additionally, a new trial and new items have been added as well. Finally, a host of issues have been resolved, including:

  • An issue wherein an NPC would erroneously appear in the main scenario quest "Echoes of a Fallen Star" under certain conditions.
  • An issue when using the Monk PvE action Arm of the Destroyer wherein players would lose the effect of Opo-opo Form even when missing an enemy.
  • An issue in the dungeons Dohn Mheg and the Grand Cosmos wherein certain items from chests dropped directly into players' inventories.* With the release of patch 5.25, all party members must cast lots to obtain these items.
