Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.2 – What is Coming

By Nightmare2022-08-11

The game Final Fantasy XIV is welcoming its next new patch 6.2, in late August, and there will be many new things added in this patch. Let's see what is coming and what most of the players are excited about.


Main Scenario Quests in 6.2

A new patch will always come with new stories, and new stories are always combined with Main Scenario Quests.


In this patch, the new stories are called Buried Memory, memories you want to seal and forget. 6.1-6.3 is about wrapping up the old storyline, then setting up for new expansions in 6.4-6.5, and we might start seeing signs of the direction of 7.0 in 6.5.


Buried Memory


"Five millennia ago, the great wyrm Azdaja vanished into the void, and for long years Vrtra had despaired of being reunited with his dear sister. With the encouragement of his people, however, he has found the resolve to search for her, and sets forth with the Warrior of Light for a world engulfed in Darkness..."


Island Sanctuary in FFXIV

Island Sanctuary is what most players are excited about because it will be a totally new thing for everyone. As for newly added dungeons, it is still a dungeon, and we have had plenty of dungeons already, but this Island Sanctuary is something we have never had before. When the new patch comes, many players might check this Sanctuary first than other things.


Island Sanctuary


The Island Sanctuary is beautiful, we can tell that by the two images on the official website, and this new island will become a hot place for players to take screenshots with different Glamour, Minions, and poses. It would be so much fun.


Wonder if we can do Mining, Gathering, and fishing there to make some easy and relaxing FFXIV Gil on the island.


On the official site, the Island Sanctuary is under New Challenges, so there might have hidden dangers behind its beauty.


"Find Sanctuary in an island paradise abundant with wildlife, where crops may be sown and minions let to roam. What will you learn in nature's embrace─and what will you create from this newfound inspiration?

Make ready to set sail, for your hideaway awaits!"


Did you notice the sentence where it says, "what will you create from this newfound inspiration?", so there are things that we could create in the Island Sanctuary! I can't wait for it to come.
