For the first time in nearly four years, Final Fantasy XI‘s developers will be adding two new avatars, accessible to Summoners. The first will be Cait Sith and the second will be Atomos. Cait Sith is slated to be released during the mid-March version update, while Atomos has yet to be given a window.
As expected, Cait Sith will be a light-based avatar. Most of her Blood Pacts are pretty par for the course, but the one that stands out to me personally is “Altana’s Favor,” which lacks a bit of a punch with the recent reduction to experience points lost on death, but is still convenient nonetheless. Here’s the complete list:
- Blood Pact: Rage
Name Required Level Effect Regal Scratch SMN Lv. 1 Delivers a threefold attack Mewing Lullaby SMN Lv. 25 Puts all enemies within area of effect to sleep and lowers their TP. Eerie Eye SMN Lv. 55 Silences and inflicts amnesia upon the target. Level ? Holy SMN Lv. 75 Deals light damage to enemies within area of effect.
- Blood Pact: Ward
Name Required Level Effect Raise II SMN Lv. 15 Revives target from KO. Reraise II SMN Lv. 30 Grants you the effect of Raise II when you are KO’d. Altana’s Favor SMN Lv. 1 Minimum Requisite MP: Level x2. Grants the effects of Arise and Reraise III to party members within the area of effect.
Cait Sith will be attainable via a special quest open to players whom have completed the Wings of the Goddess expansion pack.
