    Patch 3.2 brings a host of additions and refinements to the ever-changing realm of Eorzea. Thrill-seekers can brave the steely confines of Alexander: Midas, contest the awesome might of Sephirot, the Fiend, or dive into strange new dungeons. Those still learning the ropes of the adventuring life can practice in the Hall of the Novice and seek guidance via the mentor system. If you simply need to refine your form, you can cut your teeth at Stone, Sky, Sea. There's even the orchestrion for the realm's connoisseurs of music. Indeed, there is something for everyone here in Eorzea!

Individual PvP rating and tiers will also be assigned to players and the highest-ranked participants of each season will be awarded a special prize.

    * Season one is scheduled to take place in patch 3.25, with pre-season matches between patches 3.21 and 3.25. Please note there will be no rewards offered at the end of pre-season.

    [​IMG]

    Entry Requirements
    The Feast will automatically unlock for players who have already unlocked the Wolves' Den.

    The Feast
    The Feast is divided into three arenas, for each of which ratings and participant numbers will differ. The 8 on 8 matches will be held in a larger arena.

    upload_2016-2-22_8-53-52.png

    - Roles
    Tank: Gladiator / Marauder / Paladin / Warrior / Dark Knight
    Melee DPS: Pugilist / Lancer / Rogue / Monk / Dragoon / Ninja
    Ranged DPS: Archer / Thaumaturge / Arcanist / Bard / Black Mage / Summoner / Machinist
    Healer: Conjurer / White Mage / Scholar / Astrologian

    * New members cannot be added during matches.
    * In the 27th Letter from the Producer LIVE it was announced that five different arenas will be introduced; however, only three arenas will be implemented initially. The remaining two will then be added depending on the circumstances surrounding non-rated matches.

    Requirements
    Time Limit:
    10 minutes
    Level Requirement: Disciple of War or Magic level 60
    Item Level Requirement: Average Item Level of 150 or above
    Item Level Sync: Item level 150

    * For arenas that require an item level sync, all item stats will be adjusted accordingly and materia bonuses will be ignored during PvP.
    * Players who abandon the Feast (not including players who are vote kicked) will receive a penalty. Players so penalized will be unable to register for Frontline campaigns or the Wolves' Den for 30 minutes. However, players who remain inside the duty with less than the required number of party members will not receive a penalty for abandoning the match.
    * Players inactive for over a period of two minutes will automatically be removed from the Feast.

    Actions
    Certain actions, including PvP actions, may be restricted or altered for the Feast. Additionally, adrenaline rush will replace the limit break action. Unlike the limit break, adrenaline rush can be used by single players after filling the adrenaline gauge. It can be activated using the Limit Break action icon.

    Item Restrictions
    Consumable items are not allowed in the Feast.
    * Effects from these items will be removed upon entry.
    * This feature does not apply to Frontline campaigns.

    Chat
    The Say, Party, Alliance, Yell, and Shout chat channels can be used during the Feast. However, players can only see messages from members of their own team.
    * When participating in the Feast, players can receive but not send messages via free company, linkshell chat, or novice network.

    Name Display Settings
    Unlike other PvP challenges, your character's name will display as is in the name settings.

    Basic Battle Tactics
    1. The Feast participants will be placed on one of two teams: the Claws or the Fangs. Players will then begin the match in their teams' respective cages (landing point). Matches will begin after a 60 second countdown. Every player receives 100 medals at the beginning of the match for the 4 on 4 and 8 on 8 matches.

    [​IMG]
    2. Players that have been defeated by a member of the opposing team will drop half the medals in their possession.

    Small (1 to 25 medals)
    [​IMG]

    Medium (26 to 74 medals)
    [​IMG]

    Large (75 medals or more)
    [​IMG]
    3. By interacting with dropped medals, players can claim them as their own. Only medals dropped by members of the opposing team can be collected. Should the dropped medals for some reason go uncollected, they will vanish after a set period of time and be returned to the player that was originally in possession of them.

    The following icon in the name display will indicate the number of medals each player possesses:

    [​IMG]

    Retaliation
    Incapacitated players will be returned to their team's landing, where they will be allowed to rejoin combat after a short delay. This will not incur a weakness penalty. Furthermore, players' TP and MP will be fully restored and they will be granted temporary invulnerability when leaving their landing.

    4. Victory is achieved in one of two ways: be the first team to hold a collective total of 600 medals in a 4 on 4 match or 1,200 medals in a 8 on 8 match; or be the team holding the most medals when the time limit for the match expires.

    [​IMG]
    * In the event a player's connection is lost or they leave the area at the start of a match, all medals in their possession will be dropped at the landing point.
    * In the event a player's connection is lost or they leave the area during an ongoing match, all medals in their possession will be dropped where they stood. These medals can be claimed by a member of the opposing team.
    * If the player's connection is reestablished and the medals have not yet been claimed, they will automatically be returned to the player.
    * In the event of a server crash, ongoing matches will be voided and will have no effect on player rankings and ratings.

    Adrenaline Rush
    In the Feast, adrenaline rush will replace the limit break action and unlike limit break, can be used by single players. The adrenaline rush gauge can be filled by retrieving adrenaline kits during combat. Once completely filled, adrenaline rush can then be activated using Limit Break located under the General tab of the Actions & Traits interface.

    upload_2016-2-22_8-55-32.png

    Supply Boxes and Kits
    A variety of supply boxes can be found in the Feast. By targeting and destroying these boxes, players will be able to obtain supply kits, which offer various beneficial effects. The effect of a kit can only be gained by the team member who inflicted the most damage on the supply box.

    upload_2016-2-22_8-55-58.png

    * Medical supplies and kits will not appear in 4 on 4 matches.

    [​IMG]
    Culling Time
    During the match, if a certain amount of time elapses without a player being KO'd, then all participants will be afflicted by "Culling Time"─a detrimental status effect that causes players to receive added damage from attacks. The extra damage from attacks with 'Culling Time' will continue to increase over time. This effect and the disruptions in weather caused by this status will only disappear once a player is KO'd.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Heavy Metal
    Participants who hold too many medals in their possession will be afflicted with the "Heavy Medal" status and will receive 10% more damage as a result. This affliction can stack up to 9 times, depending on the number of medals the player possesses.

    [​IMG]
    upload_2016-2-22_8-56-39.png

    Match Progress Display Window
    Players will have the option to view match progress for the Feast.

    * This window for the Feast displays player contribution to the battle using three abbreviations: K, D, and A. "K" stands for the number of opponents a player has KO'd; "D" stands for the number of times a player has been KO'd; and "A" represents a player's number of assists in defeating enemies.
    * This window can be viewed from the Duty List or by hitting the assigned keybinding.

    [​IMG]
    Rewards
    When a campaign has ended, players will receive PvP EXP, Wolf Marks, Allagan tomestones of esoterics, and Allagan tomestones of lore.

    PvP EXP
    Accumulating PvP EXP raises PvP rank, and rewards players with Action Points that can be used to enhance PvP-exclusive actions and traits.

    Wolf Marks
    Wolf Marks can be exchanged for gear and other items by speaking with one of the Maelstrom soldiers stationed at the Wolves' Den (X:6.0 Y:6.1).

    PvP Ratings
    A player's PvP rating is a value that represents their relative skill compared to other participants of the Feast. Each person will be given an individual rating and a four-person party rating, which will fluctuate independently of one another.

    PvP ratings will only be affected by rated matches, increasing with each match won and decreasing with each match lost by the player. Should any of these matches result in a tie, PvP ratings will remain unaffected.

    Duty Finder will match participants in the Feast 4 on 4 – Solo based upon their PvP ratings. To prevent any large disparities between teams from occurring, players will be distributed so the average rating of both sides will be equal.

    Ratings will not change with static parties and 4 on 4 matches, but will be used to match players to someone with a similar rating.

    * Players with a PvP rating of less than 500 will remain unaffected by losses.
    * Players who experience a loss of connection, log out, or quit during the middle of a match or promotion qualifier will lose by default. However, should a player reconnect before results are tallied, their rating will increase or decreased based on the results of the match.
    * In the event of a server crash, ongoing matches will be voided, and will have no effect on player rankings and wolf marks.

    [​IMG]
    Tiers
    A player's tier represents their standing in the hierarchy of the Feast, and is determined by the player's PvP rating. There are five tiers in total. When a season ends, players will receive rewards based on their tier placement.

    Bronze [​IMG]
    Silver [​IMG]
    Gold [​IMG]
    Platinum [​IMG]
    Diamond [​IMG]

    Promotion Qualifiers
    To advance to higher tiers, players must participate in promotion qualifiers. Once the requisite PvP rating has been reached, players will earn the right to fight in up to five promotion qualifiers. At least three of these matches must be won in order to advance to the next tier. Progress can be monitored by selecting PvP Profile located under Character in the main menu.

    * PvP ratings may still increase or decrease when participating in promotion qualifiers.
    * In the event of a tie, the match will not be counted during promotion qualifiers.
    * In the event a player's PvP rating drops below the minimum required for the current tier, that player will be demoted to the next lower tier. However, players cannot be demoted lower than bronze.

    Standings
    Standings for each tier will be updated daily on the Lodestone.

    Seasons
    A season refers to the set period within which participants of the Feast must strive to achieve the highest possible PvP rating and tier. At the end of each season, players will receive rewards based on their final tier. Participants that fulfill certain conditions will also be eligible to receive special season bonuses.

    * Season One is scheduled to begin with patch 3.25. Patch 3.21 will mark the beginning of the pre-season, at which time we will make a number of balance adjustments. Please note that no season rewards will be on offer during pre-season.

    STR / DEX / VIT / INT / MND / PIE

    I'm more viewing it as a correction of required action than a Nerf per say. Tanks should Tank, Healers should Heal and they're working towards a more pure Trinity than the homogeneous of Everything DPS they had going.

    I think this is a good patch;

    - They added some lower lvl pvp stuff i've been asking about. Now more arenas!
    - This novice content can help the community
    - More dungeons of course to keep yall buzzy

    It's going in the good direction; changes are thoughtfull.
