Fashion Report

“A mysterious masked gentleman has come to the Gold Saucer and is issuing challenges─of the fashion variety. From combinations to colors, can you coordinate your way into his heart? Or will his barbed tongue leave your pride in shreds? Join heads with your fellow adventurers and strive for the heights of fine fashion!”

Performance Actions Update

“The bard action Performance receives a huge overhaul with an improved interface. New piano, lute, and fiddle tones allow for even more creative freedom!”

New Mounts

“Race across the skies swathed in divine winds on the auspicious kamuy, or unleash powerful buffets of air with the majestic true griffin. Your fellow adventurers are sure to be left dumbfounded when you arrive dangling from a magitek death claw.”
