    Looks promising, seems there will be way more to do now, at least it seems so. Wolfs Den though is PvP I wonder if that means that the Battlegrounds they promised will be available as well.

    This all looks and sounds great!

    Any ideas what "Duty Finder - Random Matching System" means? Isn't this what it does now? ^^;

    Just guessing, but maybe making it so that there aren't any repeats in 4 mans maybe?
    Not sure, I saw that too.

    The random matching is going to be a random selection of a dungeon. According to an interview there will be a reward for completing a random dungeon once a day.

    Live Letter two, pasted form Reddit:

    • More warnings about phishing emails
    • Video showing the FFXIII content in FFXIV (looks like a story, has cutscenes w/ Lightning)
    • The FFXIII content will be released week after 11/14
    • Bahamut Coil: no one has cleared stage 5 yet; some Q&As
    • Crystal Tower: 24 man high-level challenge (boss is from FF3) but easier than Bahamut and will allow Duty Finder use. 90-120min for each run.
    • Player Housing: 3 sizes (small, medium, large), over 300 parts to build from. Video shown... amazing.
    • No pricing on housing yet, Yoshi-P still needs to fix the economy first (increase Gil)
    • Growing Gyshal Greens in house & Chocobo Raising is planned!
    • Planned to being able to build ships/etc in house basements
    • FC will be able to hire shopkeepers in their FC housing at some point
    • You can't make furniture out of bread
    • Wolves Den (PVP): 4v4, three tiers (lvl 30/40/50), PVP-exclusive abilities. Video shown.
    • Images showing PVP specific gear
    • Are thinking about 1v1 battles, but not decided yet
    • 2.1 will release this year for sure
    • More servers/stability in Oct

    Go level a crafter, there's plenty of Gil to be made. I'm sitting at around 7million.
