  • New PvP Frontline: Onsal Hakair (Danshig Naadam) – This new frontline map and ruleset teams up each of Eorzea's grand companies with a tribe of Azim Steppe as they fight for control of territory in this grand demonstration of martial prowess. Each team will work to capture 'Oovo,' bases which earn a team points while under their control—the first team to accumulate the required points will be declared the winner.
  • Blue Mage Job Updates – FINAL FANTASY XIV Online's first limited job receives its first major update following its introduction earlier this year.
    • Level Cap Increase from Level 50 to Level 60
    • New Blue Mage Job Quests
    • Learn New Iconic Blue Magic Spells
    • Introduction of the Blue Mage Log – Form a party of blue mages to conquer various dungeons and trials through teamwork and strategy using blue magic. Players can reap weekly rewards by defeating specific targets, including high-difficulty "prime targets" that provide even greater bounties.
  • New Mount, Minion, Crafting Recipes, Achievements, and More.
