The early FFXIV 6.3 patch notes are here, and while they might be early, they certainly aren’t lacking information about what to expect in the MMO game’s next update. Among the lengthy set of notes Square Enix posted are mentions of the new diving spots available in Limsa Lominsa, assuming you’ve reached the right level, some much-needed improvements to questing, and a reminder about the upcoming housing lottery.
On the questing front, quests whose locations aren’t in a city or in the open will have a quest marker indicating what path to follow to reach it. This improvement only applies to Endwalker and other quests up through 6.3, but Square Enix said the changes will gradually be rolled out for older quests in future updates.
Wards 25 through 30 will be made available across all residential districts, and the 6.3 housing lottery will start on Jan. 15, 2023, at 7 a.m. Pacific Time. A range of new furnishings will also be available, and you can finally preview portraits and other paintings at a shop before purchasing them.
Final Fantasy XIV 6.3 releases Jan. 10, 2023, and a second patch is planned for the near future.
