Defenders of Eorzea is now live.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’s 2.3 patch, titled Defenders of Eorzea, has gone live today. This patch offers players a number of new dungeons, new quests, skills, side-quests, and the anticipated Chocobo Raising and Housing features.
In addition to these features, Defenders of Eorzea features a three-faction PVP mode called Frontline. This mode allows up to 72 players to engage in head-to-head direct combat, with the battles being set within the borders of Carteneau. Which of Eorzea’s nations will be successful in gaining control of the Allagan Ruins?
The patch’s story is as follows:
When the world is thrown into chaos, who will rise to defend those too weak to defend themselves? The Sahagin summoned Leviathan, Lord of the Whorl, that the unbridled fury of the sea would wash away those who would threaten their livelihood. Eorzea’s people turned to the Warriors of Light, who drove this sinister serpent back into the briny deep. Now, new voices can be heard. From the deserts of Thanalan, to the verdant woods of the Black Shroud, to the snowy peaks of Coerthas, these voices cry out for a champion. Who will heed their call as the defender of Eorzea?
