In times of Final Fantasy XI version updates, players have learned to accept the good with the evil. In this case, two of the biggest perks of this semi-annual update include an increase in movement speed and an ability that was previously relegated to two specific jobs now available for all.
Movement speed for playable characters, pets, and enemies has been increased by 25% with the added perk that enemies will only move faster during battle. Furthermore, the passive ability known as “Wide Scan,” in which Rangers and Beastmasters could view the monsters in their vicinity on the map, will now be available to all jobs. Beastmasters and Rangers will retain a more advanced version of the ability however.
Final Fantasy XI‘s latest expansion, Seekers of Adoulin, launched this past February. You can check out the full details of the December version update in the link below.
