1.17a Patch NotesFollow

#1 Apr 25 2011 at 3:04 PM Rating: Excellent
Patch notes are up!

Linky to patch notes.

Event

* [dev1002][dev1003] New sidequests have been added.

* [dev1055] Guild tasks have been added.
By examining the new task boards found within any Adventurers' Guild, players may view and undertake the tasks of Eorzea's guilds. Obtaining and delivering the requested items will yield both rewards and skill points (awarded to the active class at time of completion).

* Players may complete a maximum of one task per guild per day (Earth time, resetting daily at 6:00 p.m. PDT/1:00 a.m. GMT).


Battle

* [dev1056] A 3-D effect now appears on the screen when a light party (4–7 members) or full party (8 members) is formed.




System

* [dev1057] The size of the HP bar shown directly beneath display names has been adjusted.

* [dev1035] The gamepad can now be used to cycle through target filters when in targeting mode A.


* [dev1047] When initiating a guildleve or behest, the background music now cuts in, rather than fading in.


Fixed Bugs

* The following bugs have been addressed:

o A bug wherein party member markers on the world map and minimap would sometimes shift abruptly to the lower right portion of the map.
o A bug wherein faction leve rewards could be obtained repeatedly without proper expenditure of faction credits.

* Measures have been taken to correct a bug wherein recovery maintenance was being obstructed following market area difficulties on all worlds due to the feature that remembers retainer locations.


Known Bugs

* A bug wherein players cannot embark on certain duties related to the sidequest "Seashells by the Seashore."

* While on the sidequest, moving to a certain location should cause a "Duty calls" message to appear, and you are asked if you wish to proceed. In some cases, however, this prompt is not appearing. Should this occur, please move near the cliffs to the south, and then attempt returning to the previous location once more.

* A bug wherein the light party 3-D effect appears when a full party is disbanded.

Guild thingy sounds ala FFXII

Honestly I'm not dissapointed by anything other than the Full Party Light Party bit... I'm positive that wasn't nessecary but whatever. I wasn't expecting much this patch and was hoping for some bigger goodies earl next month.

Hopefully there's a few of these guild quest things, or it's got some neat aspect... considering it's 1x per day who knows it could be fepic (fake epic ^.-)

Actually its not 1 per day, its one per day per guild. Could mean we could have as many as 18 per day if you can do one for every guild in each city. If there is actually more then 5 per guild this could be the most content we have had since beta XD. Still speculation though... guess we will know more in 3 hours.

After seeing the boards since the game started, I was wondering how long it would be before Guild tasks would come. Will be interesting to see how they are.

They did. The other half is patch 1.17 posted on 4-14-11. After they recovered from the earthquake/tsunami, they said that they would have to split patch 1.17 into two in order to get the more important stuff out on time. So what we're seeing today was really intended to be included in the 4-14-11 patch, but the disaster delayed it.

Why are people still getting disappointed?

It's repeatedly been said that the second patch is always a follow up and rarely has anything substantial aside from bug patches. This last patch is being generous.

I kinda of like the Task boards and to be honest this game kinda has a FF12 feel to it so I think something along those lines is a good direction.

The 3-D affect is like, "this is what you guys are working on"? srsly...

All in all 1.17 and 1.17a from a content standpoint are pretty good and I kind of like the direction things are going with the Companies. I can't wait to see what else they add in the coming months.

Now if they would just release some details about the new battle system and updated class/job system instead of keeping us in the dark.

I read that as the task boards are in the adventurer's guilds. "Where players may view and undertake the tasks of Eorzea's guilds"...the guilds for each class.

Can never be too sure with SE = D

Only thing that has me second-guessing that is 18 guild tasks a day + 16 leves every 36 hours seems like a lot? Depending on how much time they take I guess & different between hardcore/casual players...

Hmm, Guild Quests sound interesting, but I can't help but be disappointed already at the fact that there's apparently no "guild points" system, which means that there won't be any guild points items (or furniture, heh) either.

I was excited when I read the first part of the sentence, but it took only moments for reality to sink in, and I fear that these new guild quests will be nothing more than the same generic and uninteresting Guildleves slapped on to a new starter. Prove me wrong, SE - I really hope you do! >_<;

At the very most, agreed... hopefully the least is not 1 per Adventurers guild but we'll see. I personally won't be disapointed if it's 3 quests per day depending on the content or time consumption vs reward of them. Obviously I'd rather multiple varied quests per city per day in addtion to what we have already. But everything adds up and most of us don't have everything to cap yet ^.~

no offense toward you but, duuuuh.
these new board quests arent going to be any different than sidequests and guildleves. all are fetch quests with time sink traveling given by a wall of text.
but hey, ill take a quest over randomly fighting mobs anyday.

Ok, lets add this up. 3 leves, one per city, everyday. if you used telaport to do these, you would be out of anima in no time. or add up all the time you spend running to each city. and again you are screwed. Why are SE so afraid of giving people what they want. seems everytime we get something, something else gets taken away. regardless, i will always be FF mmo fan, just do not make me go back to FF 11, because at the time it is actually a better game. im rambleing, have fun everyone..........

i suppose im wrong but its to my understanding that not only is the average player done being under R10 with/either class theyre interested in, but it literally only takes a few hours, literally at most, to get to R10 on any class anyway so whats the point of this? shouldnt we add simple things for mid level players to do as top priority?

You have to love the patch notes on Lodestone for this patch. 2 Pictures showing Light Party and Full Party take up almost half the page.

You know there is nothing exciting in this patch when they add a screen text saying how large your party is, makes up half the patch notes... looks like FFXIV will still be on the bench for me. It is actually joke worthy!

The fact that I have been spending more time on Facebook than FFXIV says a lot about the current state of this game.

I don't criticize these small updates. Those aren't the problem. The problem is that this game was released two years too soon.

Most people moved on a long time ago. Combine that with the release of some very compelling mmo's coming up this year.... and I can't see ffxiv making it. If it does, I'll be back. If it doesn't - well, I'm over it at this point.

If you say that this game is over for you then I for one would appreciate it if you acted as such. Let us fanboys, blind easy to please gamers enjoy the game.... we know how the game is, we play it most days so why just try to bring it down again and again?

Because "If it does, I'll be back." means that he has just a bit of hope left that the game will make it. Like most of us who lurk the forums in hope for a brighter future.

The fact that you Hugus, managed to find sufficient fun where manymany didn't doesn't make your opinion any more valuable.

Are you people unable to ignore this game although hating it's current incarnation with a passion? You don't have to be here to follow the game. You don't have to keep checking on every change and patch. Live your life, check the game's status at the end of the year or forget about it. None of you are making any sense whatsoever for sticking around.

At least most of the people have done just that. They forgot about the game or are ignoring it for the time being, as it will offer no satisfaction for them. I suggest you do the same.

Thats why you don't see me screaming to the 4 winds how good the game is and repeating the same thing over and over again.

If people wanna keep an eye open for improvements in the game I don't see a problem with it. Why people feel that they need to say how bad the game is (specially not having played recently) because nothing has changed I dont understand.

I still think the majority of people in ZAM are actual players so we know how the game is we don't need to be told about it.

I want my $75 worth. I haven't gotten it yet, just promises that I might by the Spring.

I've been active in the mean time slowly leveling classes in anticipation of a playable game.

If it weren't for folks being vocal, we'd still be Tanaka's original vision of the game.

What purpose does this serve?

I also find it humorous that you are playing this game "in anticipation of it becoming playable".

Why do you need to play the game? I am trying to figure out your reasoning here. Why play a game you don't (apparently) seem to enjoy? A game that apparently does not give you $75 worth, yet you keep putting hours into it.

I don't think I will be able to understand the logic of you people. One group is hatin' on the game, yet follow it religiously and post on the forums over and over again with replies such as "they should have done this, they should have done that, the game might be good or it might be bad in the future- and if it's bad, I won't play". The other group is saying "the game is not worth playing but I still play it because it might get better", implying that you are somehow required to actually play the game while waiting for it to get better.

Somebody mind explaining all this to me? I feel like there is something huge I am missing here.

The fact of the matter is, that anyone who complains prob has a Rank 50 job of some kind and is still waiting for some kind of endgame. I was smart. I knew the game was messed up from the beginning. WHy do you think I haven't gotten a Rank 50 job yet? I am in no rush. I no there isn't anything to do after you hit Rank 50, so I am taking my time. I could be grinding so much harder if I wanted to, but I am not. I take time from FFXIV to do other stuff, like play random PS3 games, or LoL, or just go hang out with friends, or write guides, or whatever. I help other people out too, if I can. Everyone is in such a hurry to cap their classes, that they hit the temporary wall FFXIV still has preventing progress. Meanwhile, I am still having lots of fun playing, because I still have lots to do. If you rushed through it all, then your no better than a kid who gets a candy bar and scarfs it down, only to complain 30 seconds later when it's all gone. You should have savored it. So until they finish the battle system changes, save the QQ. We all know exactly when the real content is being released. (June). For now, go level something you normally wouldn't. Or go play another game and come back in 2 months. But if you feel you must complain (again) about the same stuff every time, at least don't derail threads into a QQ fest.

For me, it's a combination of two things.

1) I was promised major change by Spring and 2) I like the people I've met.

If it weren't for the promised change I'd have uninstalled long ago and kept in touch with folks via other means like ZAM.

Honestly, my routine for the past few months has been to play PS3 and chat till it's time for behest, do behest then repeat. So to say I'm sinking hours into it is an exaggeration.

SE made the promises it did in hopes we stick around, so I'm giving them till the first version update. Till then, I'll just continue to snag a few mindless SP every 30 minutes while chatting with friends so I can be ready for the major version update.

We can take this to PMs if you want as it seems no answer willbmake you happy, but we're way off topic.

To try and steer this back on topic, did anyone find Company-related quests? They used the 1003 tag but I didn't see any while testing out Guild Tasks.

So far I have not encountered anything, but that doesn't mean there isn't, it just means I don't do a lot of quests. Heh. It could be that they are implementing the content without making it available as they complete some of the quests related to the GCoE. My guess is we won't see any real quests related to them until the Battle System patch next month or maybe not until June version update.

i can see what your saying here.
the whole point for SE to announce tidbits was to get people to stay.
i think SE is more confident in their developers and technology than reality permits. WOW, communicating with your people and adding official forums? try using already perfected game engines AT LEAST along with yours, stop being so self righteous SE.

Glad You agree. And... saying it is "3D" is overstated as well!

It is 3D if your playing the game in 3D. Obviously to 2D players it will not look 3D. Just saying. lol

Several people above have already exressed my sentiments, but for the record I do consider myself a "fanboy".

I come and go hoping to keep a jump on the game for when it does finally "get good". However, each time I run accross other entertaining hobbies/passtimes in real life it reminds me how bad FFXIV really is. As soon as I become bored with my latest hobby or interest, I log back onto FFXIV, pretend its a good game, and re-gain intrest for a few weeks.

Its a viscious cycle that only a stubborn fanboy could withstand. Yea, I realize there are more hardcore fanboys than myself and I see their R50 jobs plastered all over their banners - but those people represent such a tiny fraction of the worlds gamers that I still fall into the fanboy category by virtue of my once-per-day visit to these forums.

And don't worry about a negative posts "dragging you down". If you haven't been drug down by now, nothing I say will weaken your grip.
