Jumping Potions in KR/CH to Make Catching Up Easier

Jumping Potions in KR/CH to Make Catching Up Easier - MMORPG.com

A post made by Final Fantasy XIV Game Director Naoki Yoshida over the weekend was made to clarify to the community the background behind the new "Jumping Potions" that are now available in both the Korean and Chinese FFXIV markets. These potions are intended to "make it easier for the newer players to catch up with the rest of the community". New players just coming into the game may not have enough time to invest in the game and potions are a way to facilitate their fun.

These potions are currently implemented in the Chinese and Korean versions of the game, but not the global version. Online games are particularly huge in China and Korea and this type of service is provided commonly among online games released in these regions. We implemented the service in the Chinese and Korean versions of the game to make sure the game can stay competitive in their online gaming markets.

Additionally, this service is recently becoming much more popular in MMORPGs released in North America and Europe. 

There are two potions available: The Story Skip Potion that allows complete progress of the main story scenario through 2.55 and the team is at work on a potion that will clear the main 3.5 Part 2 story as well, though it is not yet implemented; and the Job Jump Potion that levels a single job to 50, though after Stormblood, it will jump the chosen job to 60.

The post goes into great detail of the specific circumstances of when each potion may be used with plenty of examples of what it will look like once done.

You can read the full post on the Final Fantasy XIV forum.
