Square Enix added so much content in patch 2.1! It was quite overwhelming at first, but after spending most of my vacation trying out a bit of everything, I've decided to lump together the little bits of "mini" content additions in this entry!
First, me and Mariot saved a stray kitten and puppy which we then pit against each other in a battle to the death!
Don't worry, no minions were harmed in the making of this blog entry.
Then , Strawberry joined forces with the Sylphs and Amalj'aa in order to bring peace to the Beastmen side of the realm. These Beastmen quests can be done daily, up to six times. While very simple quests, doing them every day builds up your reputation around the camps, and give you access to new and exciting items from Beastmen vendors, like mounts, dyes and minions!
A new /throw emote was added, and in true winter vacation style, me and Mariot headed off to Coerthas to throw snowballs at stuff - and each other!
Stay away from my treasure chest! Treasure Hunt is another new minigame that was introduced where Disciple of the Land jobs can dig up various treasure maps and use them to find treasure! I wonder what secrets lie inside...?
Lastly, a commendation system was introduced. For duties undertaken in the Duty Finder, players can commend other players who performed well in dungeons and more! These can be traded in for cosmetic things like hart, mounts and minions!
Now everyone's got a reason to help everyone else out!
As a White Mage or Tank, snatching up all 3 commendations from other party members is a very easy task. Or maybe I'm just great at what I do? Who knows!
Lastly, have a deliciously lucky 1% HQ mining screenshot. Just because!
