Recently, Final Fantasy XIV official website show off a whole bunch of new screenshots for patch 4.3 “Under the Moonlight” which show moments from the new main scenario quests, some dungeon and raid stills, as well as new emotes and changes to the glamour dresser.
Main Scenario Quests
Patch 4.3 is said to wrap up the main scenario events around the Far Eastern land of Doma. This means we might finally learn what's going on with Yotsuyu, among other things.
New Alliance Raid - The Ridorana Lighthouse
The Ridorana Lighthouse, of Ivalice fame, is making its way to Final Fantasy XIV.
The Swallow's Compass
"Chiseled into the great wall which cuts across the plains of Yanxia, between two of the Dairyu Moon Gates, is the visage of Ganen, the legendary hero who united Doma."
These days, odd-numbered patches in FFXIV get a single new dungeon, to give the developers room to add other types of content, and avoid the dungeon overload that is present in the early game. This time it's The Swallow's Compass, in the land of Yanxia. Besides the new locale and battles, it's also notable that the gear in this dungeon is inspired by one of FFXIV's many gear design contests.
The Forbidden Land, Eureka - Pagos Expedition
Part of a smaller update coming a little later in the 4.3 cycle, the recently-introduced Eureka will be expanding to a new.
New Beast Tribe Quests - The Namazu
So far, each set of beast tribes have had one group who, instead of combat-based quests, focuses entirely on crafting and gathering, and for Stormblood, this is the role the Namazu will fill.
New Deep Dungeon
100 floors of randomly generated challenges, the developers promise things get challenging early on this time around, starting around floor 30. Along with unique challenges and its independent leveling system, progressing will award your main character with EXP, so it's good incentive for leveling from 61-70.
"There is no greater quest than seeking the perfect outfit, and the glamour dresser is here to help. This already spacious commode of clothing can now hold a greater variety of gear. What's more, any clothing turned into glamours can now be restored to its original form."
The recent addition of the Glamour Dresser has been a huge help to those of us who hoard gear for their appearances, but the shift to a new system also meant some growing pains.
The option to add a message board or guestbook to player-owned housing has been a long-standing request amongst the community, and this is finally on its way. You'll be able to add both indoor and outdoor guestbooks, so other players and friends visiting your house can leave you (hopefully) nice messages and comments.
FFXIV Companion Mobile App
Square Enix also provided some details on the in-development companion app for Final Fantasy XIV. Downloading this mobile app will allow players to chat with their friends, organize events, organize their inventory and armoury chest, browse the Market Board, buy/sell items, and register an additional favored destination Aetheryte.
