  • New Game+: Main Scenario Quests for Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers
  • Fellowships: Large communities of up to 1000 players. Players can be in up to 10 fellowships at a time.
  • The Diadem was retired and closed off to players. It would later be redesigned as a gatherer-exclusive zone in patch 5.21.
  • Housing: Wards 19-21 added to all residential districts.


  • New Scrip currency: Skybuilders Scrip Skybuilders' Scrip exclusive to the new Ishgardian Restoration
  • Adjustments have been made to the Forbidden Land, Eureka, to make it quicker and easier to level through, particularly when there are few players present:
    • The Echo was applied to the Forbidden Land: Eureka, allowing players to defeat trash mobs solo, and take down Notorious Monsters with small groups. In addition, mounts are available immediately, and Notorious Monsters spawn faster.
      • The Echo was not applied to the Baldesion Arsenal.
  • PvP Frontline: all players are permanently freelancers, meaning a random Grand Company is chosen each match. (5.18)
