FFXIV Maintenance Scheduled For Patch 6.18 Hotfixes (July 12, 2018)

Final Fantasy XIV saw its most recent update, patch 6.18 go live on July 5, after a 24-hour maintenance period. For the duration of the data center travel implementation and new servers, the game was down for a long time. A week later, FFXIV maintenance was back. It’s not as difficult this time. and FFXIV are offline to receive Patch 6.18 hotfixes . They will start on July 12th at 11:00 p.m. (PT) and end on July 13th at 3:00 a.m. (PT ).

Although the FFXIV team didn’t specify what hotfixes were for, it appears to be related to Patch 6.18’s features, namely data centre travel. The game has struggled to keep up with player demand for data center travel . FFXIV was receiving up to 15,000 requests every minute, and servers were having issues since day one. Although temporarily suspended, the feature seems to have stabilised. Players should know that data center travel will be halted 30 minutes prior to the maintenance period (July 12, at 10:30 PT).

The new data center travel system allows players to visit other data centers in their area. If we are on a server at the Primal data centre, we can visit any server at Aether or Crystal. You can find a complete guide to restrictions as well as how to use the data center travel system .

Surprisingly FFXIV Patch 6.18 introduced other noteworthy features. Radiant Roborant can now be earned with Aglaia coins. This is a minor but important change. This allows to get the most powerful weapons in without needing to grind the Savage raids. A slew more Job changes were made for PVP to improve balance in competitive multiplayer. Frontline PVP mode was also modified with adjustments to damage modifiers, Limit Break gauges, and other tweaks. European players also received new servers at their data centers. This increased player capacity and helped reduce server congestion. It all is summarized in our HTMLXIV Patch 6_.

You can find our coverage of what’s coming soon if you are looking for something to do during and FFXIV maintenance. The latest Live Letter has been broken down. It covered many new HTML4_ content that will be added in Patch 6.2, which is scheduled for late August 2022. We are excited about new features such as Island Sanctuary and Variant/Criterion Dungeons. Hildibrand Relic Weapons and the Omicron Tribal Quests.
