Final Fantasy XIV is set to have a major content update called Under the Moonlight (Patch 4.3) in the later part of May 2018. Yep, no dates as of yet, but we know what’s coming! This update will include the next chapter of the main scenario regarding the peace negotiations between Doma and the Empire and the new dungeon called The Swallow’s Compass. A trailer for Under the Moonlight will be released in the near future.

Also included in this update:

  • New Trial
  • New Alliance Raid – The Ridorana Lighthouse
  • The Weapon’s Refrain (Ultimate)
  • Beast Tribe Quests – The Namazu
  • Even Further Hildibrand Adventures
  • Deep Dungeon Heaven-on-High – 100-Floor
  • The Forbidden Land, Eureka Expansion – Pagos Expedition
  • Jobs & PvP Updates
  • Glamour System & Housing Updates

Main Scenario – Under the Moonlight

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.

New Dungeon – The Swallow’s Compass

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, and so after his death this royal mausoleum became a holy place to which his disciples would make 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?

Want to give the game a go before this update comes? The free trial for Final Fantasy XIV is still available right now which allows players to reach up to level 35 in the game.

i’m beyond excited for the update. glad to see the design winner’s outfit entered into the game but damn, will i have to run that new dungeon 100 times for a full set ;-;


You will not get a same piece of an equipment twice so. and after you finished a dungeon, if you didn’t get any piece of equipment of your own class, you will automatically get one.


Yes, I know! I have farmed plenty of dungeons (for minions, mounts, etc.). Still – you are rolling against 3 others (when Need isn’t in your favor), and not every piece will drop in one run. Not to mention that you are incorrect about that last statement. This dungeon is NOT a “Leveling” dungeon, meaning you don’t get a guaranteed piece of gear. 🙂
