FINAL FANTASY XIV, The Lodestone
As we transition from the game’s current version to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, existing game content will be undergoing a number of changes. This post will detail such changes coming to items and the monetary system.
Due to extensive changes made to the battle and other major game systems, existing items and the monetary system will be rebalanced in FINAL FANTASY XIV: ARR.
Note: Company seals and items not explicitly mentioned in this post will not be changed. However, the methods for obtaining these items in FFXIV: ARR may be different.
I have mixed feelings about this. Mostly because I wanted to have them cap gil in addition to renumerating them. There were a lot of players that were using bots and illegal methods of obtaining gil and while I appreciate that SE didn't want to "ruin" things for the rest of the legit players, it doesn't change the fact that we're carrying over things into the new game that will have a negative impact on both the economy and game balance.
