Official PlayOnline Announcement

From the Official FFXI Site (March 29):

The Kokba Hostel The Kokba Hostel

In the upcoming version update, we will introduce the “Kokba Hostel,” a private room that players will be able to reserve for hour-long time slots.

The concept for the hostel has been developed along the lines of the Marble Bridge Eatery in Upper Jeuno--a place separate from the bustle of the city where players of the same job or race can meet their colleagues. In a similar vein, the Kokba Hostel has been designed to provide a space where adventurers can gather and relax with friends in a private setting.

Main features of the Kokba Hostel:

- The hostel can be found in a Treasures of Aht Urhgan area.
- Reservations can be made for one-hour slots (Earth time).
- Each person who enters the hostel will be required to pay a fee. This fee will be set to an affordable amount.
- Players can make reservations for up to two days in advance, but are limited to one reservation at a time. If the player who made a reservation fails to show, or no reservation has been made for the current time slot, it is possible to reserve the hostel on the spot.
- During the hostel reception period, you will be asked to set a password. Only players who input this password will be able to enter the hostel during your reservation.
- Players will be provided with a variety of temporary party items and food upon entering the hostel.

The hostel can be used for a wide range of functions such as linkshell group strategy meetings before an adventure, wedding receptions, or even a place to celebrate those Ballista victories! The choices are only limited by your imagination!

FFXI Besieged Event

From the Official FFXI Site (March 27):


Owners of the FINAL FANTASY XI Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion disc will be able to experience a whole new way of doing battle--"Besieged"!

Besieged is a form of Conquest on the new continent of Aradjiah. After creating a new town, the development team decided to utilize the opportunity to implement beastman attacks within the city walls, and thus began the idea of Besieged. We then decided that these invasions were to be a struggle over a single treasure of great power.

The Empire of Aht Urhgan and the beastmen of the western half of the Aradjiah continent are in a constant state of battle over this magnificent treasure--the "Astral Candescence."

Only you can protect the Astral Candescence from the beastman threat by fighting off the savage hordes. If the Astral Candescence should be taken, you must gather your fellow adventurers and storm the beastman strongholds in order to return the Empire's treasure.

So if you thought fighting for control over regions with your fellow adventurers was tough, just wait until you find yourself Besieged by hordes of monsters!

FFXI Assault Missions

From the Official FFXI Site (March 24):

"Assault" Unveiled!

Have you ever wanted to customize missions to suit your playing style? The FINAL FANTASY XI Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion disc will include a new style of doing battle called "Assault," which will allow you to enjoy the Near East in your own way!

The Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion disc will introduce an entirely new way to play FINAL FANTASY XI--“Assault” missions!

The FINAL FANTASY XI development team created the "Assault" system to provide a means of casual enjoyment for high-level players--the main target audience of the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion disc. Assault allows for parties of three to six members to enjoy gameplay that does not last a long period of time and requires little recruitment effort. Players can choose the location, decide whether or not to impose a level restriction, and select the type of Assault mission to fit with their objectives and party organization.

Players who often participate in Assault missions will earn "Imperial Standing" credits, which can be traded for items in the various Assault locations. In addition, players who succeed in an Assault mission have the possibility of obtaining a mysterious item. After receiving an appraisal in town, the mysterious item will then be displayed as a normal item.

Repeat success in Assault will also raise your mercenary rank, which will even further increase the number and variety of available Assault missions!
