What we know so far?

(FFXIV 2.4 Patch Official Trailer)

New Class and Job: Ninja and Rogue

ffxiv 2.4 ninja and rogue preview

For the first time in FFXIV:ARR a new class and job are introduced! Rogue and Ninja! As far as we know the Rogue and Ninja are Melee DPS classes which HOPEFULLY uses DEX as their main attribute so the loot distribution will be more even. Since Ninja is an advanced job, we currently do not know what the other level 15 class requirement is. We will be updating that when we can!

On Ninja Gear & Stats: Ninjas will be using any gear Monk can use that was introduced PRE 2.4. Coming 2.4 (FCoB Allagan drops), Ninja will have their own unique gear drops. Their main stat is DEX, and as such will be sharing right side drops with Bard. Ninja Primal Weapons and Relic weapon will be introduced as well.

The Rogue class cannot be chosen upon character creation. If you’re a new player wanting to be NINJA you should choose Pugilist then level it to 15, then proceed to become Rogue.

New dungeons!

Snowcloak: A brand new dungeon featuring FENRIR! The BGM of this dungeon is super sweet!
Sastasha (Hard): It’s DEFINITELY Pirates!
Sunken Temple of Qarn (Hard): Avoirdupois, come back…

New Primal Battle: Shiva

Well, finally! One of the three primary elemental summons(in the FF universe): Ifrit, Ramuh and Shiva are finally complete! The Shiva encounter location name is: The Akh Afah Ampitheatre. (Shiva preview in trailer)

The Final Coil of Bahamut

The sweet name on that one! 2.4 DELIVERS with, almost certainly, 4 more bosses! Is it time to see… “Him”? Item level is 130. Supposedly boss 3 and 4 are “Huge Spoilers”. The Oil of Time and Sands of Time system will be re-implemented in this coil (with different name of course). The new High Allagan gear (130) is called DREADWYRM.

You have come far… to know the truth.

Turn 10: “Allagan Behemoth”
Turn 11: “Allagan Hydra”
Turn 12: ???
Turn 13: “Is it Bahamut?”

Preview FCoB in trailer.

New tomestone: Poetics. (Tomestone Gear)

Mythology is now gone, Soldiery taking its place. Poetics is the new highest tier tomestone. Poetics tomestone gear is called IRONWORKS, with raid drop upgrades AUGMENTED IRONWORKS.

i110 Crafted Gear, New Glamor Gear

i110 Crafted left-side is confirmed. i110 right side (accessories) will probably come in a future patch.

Crafter & Gatherer Updates

New gear and recipes will be available for DOH and DOL classes. Here’s the breakdown…

New slots for both DOL and DOH

  • Off-hand
  • Hands
  • Legs
  • Feet


  • Chest

IXALI OAKNOTS are very important for these upgrades. So if you’ve been lazing off in your Ehcatl Nine quests… (like me) it’s time to help some beastmen.

Future Plans for FFXIV (Possibly 2.4-2.5)

3.0 Expansion: Heavensward announced. [Link: Heavensward Trailer] A token based loot system to mitigate RNG
The ability to help train friends in coil even if your loot lockout is finished.
