Square Enix announced earlier that the smaller May Version Update for Final Fantasy XI is now available.

If you recall, a decent chunk of the May Version Update was actually delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. The team noted at the time,

““The development and operations teams are currently working from home, and for May we prioritized ensuring the stable provision of service while we bolster our ability to bring you sizeable version updates going forward. This requires us to replicate our development environment at home, and we are working feverishly to bring you the 18th Vana’versary event and other content that we’ve come to expect as soon as we possibly can.”

To that end, the May Version Update that was released includes Monthly Records of Eminence adjustments, and Ambuscade tweaks. Records of Eminence updates include:

  • The monthly Records of Eminence objective progress has been reset.
  • * The objectives are the same as those in the Friday, April 3, 2020 version update.
  • * All progress on objectives in progress has also been reset.

Ambuscade tweaks include a few resets:

  • Hallmarks have been reset.* Points earned for total hallmarks and available rewards remain the same as those in the Friday, April 3, 2020 update.
  • Badges of gallantry have been reset.* Available rewards remain the same as those in the Friday, April 3, 2020 update.

Additionally, synthesis-related function issues were resolved. You can read the full update here.
