The Final Fantasy XIV Update 4.3 is due to drop next month, but Square-Enix has revealed a few details on what to expect from it.
The Under the Moonlight update will feature a new Main scenario, a new raid, and many more additions. While this fresh set of details doesn’t cover everything just yet, it does at least give an idea. There are also three new screens from it to pore over.
Here are the juicy details we currently know.
Final Fantasy XIV Update 4.3: Under the Moonlight
Under the Moonlight (Main Scenario)
The arrival of imperial envoys in the land of Doma was as unexpected as their stated purpose: to negotiate peace. Lord Hien, eager to secure the release of his conscripted countrymen, cautiously accepts the agreement and arranges for a prisoner exchange. Yet even as Doma is poised to welcome the breaking dawn, the shadow of the fallen Zenos enfolds all in darkness and uncertainty.
Return to Ivalice (Alliance Raid Dungeon)
South of Rabanastre, in a remote corner of the Valnard Sea gapes a fathomless maw that, for centuries, has slowly devoured the world around it: Ridorana. Whether you believe the cataract natural wonder or demon-torn gate to the very underworld, journeys to her edge should be made with the utmost caution, seeing as none who have stumbled into the darkness have ever returned to tell their tale.
An ancient spire once used by the Dalmascans as a lighthouse rises defiantly above the churning waters to warn forethoughtful and foolhardy alike. It is into this spire that the transformed Ba’Gamnan has fled. It is into this hell that you must follow.
The Swallow’s Compass (New Dungeon)
Chiseled into the great wall which cuts across the plains of Yanxia, between two of the Dairyu Moon Gates, is the visage of Ganen, the legendary hero who united Doma. The first king of the new kingdom was not only a military genius but also the founder of geomancy. So after his death, this royal mausoleum became a holy place to which his disciples would make the pilgrimage. Alas, following the imperial invasion, it was abandoned and fell into disrepair, yet circumstances now conspire to deliver the Warrior of Light unto these hallowed halls─but to what end?
