Final Fantasy XIV Update 4.05 Released: Adds Savage Raid and Gets New Artwork Showing Genji Armor

on July 18, 2017 4:48 AM

Today Square Enix made Final Fantasy XIV patch 4.05 available for download. While the servers won’t be up for another hour or so, at least if the publisher sticks to the scheduled times, you can already download the patch on PS4 and PC.

While this is a decimal patch, the contents are rather significant, and you can read the full patch notes here.

First of all, we get the “Savage” mode of the Omega: Deltascape raid. It will allow players to get the new Genji armor and weapons, the name of which will prove very familiar to Final Fantasy fans. To get into the first level, you’ll need to have an average item level of 310.

Several changes has been made to classes as well, bringing adjustments to pretty much every role.

A new tier of tomestone tokens has been added as well for us to grind week after week. Tomestones of Creation will come from pretty much all kinds of high level content, and much to dedicated grinders’ dismay, they’ll bring back weekly limits, set to 450.

We’ll also get a new mount reproducing the first boss of the Omega raid, and an adorable namazu pet.

To accompany the patch, Square Enix released a batch of assets, that you can see in the gallery below, including a lovely summer illustration by Nobuyoshi Mihara, another look at the sadistic best waifu Yotsuyu, the Genji set itself, and a new dress that will be available as craftable item with the new patch.
