Patch 6.2 officially brought the Buried Memory update to Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker on Tuesday, introducing the next raid dungeon Pandæmonium: Abyssos, a challenging new trial and Island Sanctuary for those adventurers seeking a taste of the slow life.

Here's a breakdown of the FFXIV: Endwalker 6.2 patch notes.

As listed officially on the FFXIV website by Square Enix, Patch 6.2 is a huge update best digested when divided up into six sections:

  • Playable Content
  • Battle System
  • Items
  • System
  • Resolved Issues
  • Known Issues

Highlighting the Playable Content in the new patch are the added main scenario quests (MSQ). The "In Search of Azdaja" questline includes nine total missions to keep players busy.

For new side story quests, the Tataru’s Grand Endeavor sidequest series continues, where players will reunite with old friends from Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.

In addition to new quests, Patch 6.2 is said to have revised several old quests. For instance, the Steps of Faith trial is now a solo duty and no longer an eight-player trial. Beast Tribe Quests have been officially renamed to Tribal Quests in-game.

The Fell Court of Troia is the latest Dungeon to be added to the game, including battles with horrifying creatures and a Trial to overcome a new foe. Players need be at Item Level 575 or higher to enter.

Pandaemonium: Abyssos is the newest Raid to be added to the game and is available now, while the Pandaemonium: Abyssos (Savage) will be released next week.

Lastly, after much anticipation, the Island Sanctuary has made its debut in FFXIV as a new zone for players looking for a more tranquil experience. Here, players can collect materials, grow crops, build houses, have their minions roam free, and more. Anything created here can be sold or exchanged for various rewards. To unlock Island Sanctuary, take the quest "Seeking Sanctuary" from Clueless Crier in Old Sharlayan (X: 11.9, Y: 11.0).


Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker Patch 6.2 is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC and Mac.
