Final Fantasy XIV developers are bringing the events Stormblood to an end over a pair of patches set to be released in early 2019. Patch 4.5 "Requiem for Heroes" is a two-part update to the game with the first half coming in January 2019 and the second part in March 2019. Players looking forward to the Blue Mage job will also see it added in v4.5.
