Final Fantasy XIV's Patch 4.2 Mini-Site Updated Once More, with Glamours, PvP

With the next Letter from the Producer LIVE coming up in just over a week, Final Fantasy XIV has once again updated their Patch 4.2 mini-site. This time, the information brought to us involves the new Feast PvP map, new Beast Tribe Quests, the Glamour Dresser, and "Additional Updates" - Subaquatic Voyages.

Though already well-known information, the Feast has been re-vamped, with teams now competing in 6v6 matches, and a brand-new ranking system will come into play.

Probably the biggest highlight of this patch is the change to the Glamour System. If our information from the previous Live Letter is correct, players can place their gear into the Glamour Dresser, where players can then create "Glamour Plates" - pre-made outfits that can be swapped at any time.

"The Vira, one of the tribes of snake-like Ananta, have long supported the efforts of the Resistance by sending warriors to bolster their ranks. One such battlemaid is Alpa, the broodmother's daughter, who makes up for her lack of prowess in combat with her courage and ingenuity. She dreams of making a grand contribution to the Resistance, but many bizarre and perilous trials must be overcome before her plans can come to fruition."

Ananta beast tribe quests will be coming to FFXIV as well, with the mount being an elephant. I wonder if it flies - it is a Stormblood mount, after all. Flying Elephants. Hmm.

That covers the highlights for now. Still left on the list are Omega: Sigmascape, the new 8-man raid tier, the Forbidden Land, Eureka Anemos, and Still Further Hildibrand Adventures - which we can assume will be announced during Live Letter XLI.
