Final Fantasy XI continues The Voracious Resurgence in the latest patch, which also updates monthly rotations, brings back Cornelia’s alter ego, adjusts the Ambuscades and fixes a few issues. All of this as the game heads to its 20th anniversary next week.
One of the first things you might notice is the new music at the title screen. You can change it via the config menu, but the new track was recently announced. The Voracious Resurgence has now had two new chapters between April and May, ans this time you can grab the newest quest if you’re up to date. In addition to the new chapter the Records of Eminence have been rotated along with the Ambuscade, which has not only been updated for May, there are some changes there too.
Sextuple Razool Ja have been updated visually and changed from fire to ice. In Very Difficult mode, when you kill one of the Sextuple Razool Jas, the remaining ones have a 33% chance to wake up if they’re under Sleep status. You’ll also see golden bombs if you meet certain conditions, and Natsilane’s vulnerabilities and abilities have both been adjusted for the new round.
Cornelia’s alter ego is back, and will be obtainable now through November. You will automatically receive it once you complete the quest called to trust. If you've already completed it you should have it unlocked.
Several events and campaigns are in the update as well, with the 20th anniversary event still to come next week. Of note is the May login campaign. you will get points for logging in and playing the game all the way through June 2nd at 7 a.m. Pacific time. If you get 500 points you'll be able to exchange it for the monthly highlight item, the Noble Chocobo mount. The anniversary event starts Monday, May 16th, which is the 20th anniversary of the game's release in Japan. It will run through the end of the month and you'll be able to earn various rewards including a special Moogle hat.
