Where to unlock content and features in Final Fantasy XIV 6.55

A new patch for Final Fantasy XIV arrives today. Patch 6.55 includes the continuation of the main scenario quest Growing Light, that started in Patch 6.5 back in October of last year. This will include the formal introduction of Wuk Lamat, a female hrothgar who has travelled from Tural to seek the Warrior of Light’s aid in a contest of succession. This will be the last main scenario update for the game until the upcoming Dawntrail expansion this summer.

Also concluding are various sidequests including Tataru’s Grand Endeavor, Somehow Further Hildibrand Adventures, and the grand finale to the Endwalker expansion’s tribal quests. The final stage of the Manderville Weapon enhancement quests will be added, as well as a new trial versus Asura in The Gilded Araya. Fan Festival goers may remember this as an on-site exclusive that will at last be available to challenge in game.

Below you can review our unlock guide to find out the who, what, and where, including a media section with screenshots from select content.

We’ve also got the rundown on the latest Dawntrail updates, including the reveal of the Pictomancer job, female hrothgar race, and the new areas we’re expecting to explore.
