    Managing Your Squadron
    1. Recruit squadron members.

    A squadron cannot be formed until you have at least four members. This can be accomplished by completing objectives in your challenge log, which will attract new recruits to join your squadron.

    [​IMG]
    All enlistment papers received will be delivered to your desk inside the squadron barracks.

    [​IMG]
    When a potential recruit piques your interest, select Question when viewing their enlistment papers to call them into the barracks and view their profile. If they are to your satisfaction, you can then recruit them to join your squardron.
    The barracks has room for eight soldiers. If you have reached this limit and wish to enlist new recruits, you must first discharge one of the existing squadron members.

    [​IMG]
    You may also choose to postpone a potential recruit's enlistment or dismiss them when reviewing their papers. Please note that if you postpone enlistment, you cannot review the next application until you choose to accept or dismiss the current applicant.

    2. Train your recruits.
    After assembling your first squadron, they must undertake the introductory mission "City Patrol." After successfully completing this mission, they may undertake training courses posted on the regimen board. Training courses will provide increases to the squadron's overall physical, mental, and tactical abilities. The focus on which attribute is improved varies from course to course, and you are free to concentrate on the areas in which you wish your squadron to excel.

    [​IMG]
    Each training course takes 1 hour to complete (Earth time). When a training course is complete, all recruits present in the barracks will receive experience points, and the squadron's overall attributes will increase.
    * Recruits can undertake training courses up to three times a day. Training sessions are renewed every day at 1:00 p.m. (PDT).

    [​IMG]
    3. Deploy squadrons on missions.
    When your squadron is amply prepared, speak with the squadron sergeant to deploy them on a mission. Be advised that deploying your squadron requires an expenditure of company seals, with costs increasing as mission difficulty increases.

    [​IMG]
    Furthermore, each mission has a minimum level requirement. At least one member of the squadron must meet this requirement to proceed.

    4. Wait for your squadron to return.
    Missions require 18 hours (Earth time) to complete. The time remaining until a mission is completed can be viewed by opening the Timers interface located under Duty in the main menu.
    * When successfully completed, the same mission cannot be repeated for the remainder of the week. Mission timers are reset every Tuesday at 1:00 a.m. (PDT).

    5. Review the squadron's mission report.
    When the squadron returns from a mission, you can speak with the squadron sergeant to review a mission debriefing outlining squadron performance.

    The mission is a success
    Squadron members will receive experience points based on the mission's difficulty. There is also a chance squadron members will exhibit a preference for a certain squadron composition. This is known as "squadron chemistry," and it can affect the outcome of missions by improving attributes or increasing their experience earned.

    The mission ends in failure
    Squadron members will receive half the basic reward experience points.

    The number of items yielded by Exploratory Voyages has been adjusted.
    Housing
    * The timer for auto-demolition will resume with the release of patch 3.4. Further details can be found on the Lodestone.

    Apartments are now available in all three residential districts.
    The interior, flooring, and ceiling lights of apartments can be customized in the same way as estate halls.
    * Estate sharing is not permitted with apartments. Furthermore, apartments are not subject to auto-demolition.

    An apartment building is available in every ward in the three residential districts, with a second apartment building available in each subdivision.

    Each apartment building also contains a lobby where players can speak with a receptionist, as well as mender and material supplier NPCs.

    [​IMG]
    Players can enter apartments directly from the building entrance or via a door inside the lobby.

    Purchasing an Apartment
    Before purchasing an apartment, players must first attain level 50 with at least one class. Furthermore, players must have attained the rank of second lieutenant in the Maelstrom, the Order of the Twin Adder, or the Immortal Flames. Each apartment building can house up to 90 tenants, with each room costing 500,000 gil. Players are allowed one apartment per character. Furthermore, it is possible to own both an estate and an apartment.

    Furnishings
    Players can place up to 50 furnishings in an apartment. As with free company and personal estates, players are able to use all housing-specific features such as flowerpots, the orchestrion, the armoire, the crystal bell, summoning bells, and the employ of NPCs.
    * Placing a furnishing in an apartment will bind it to you, preventing future trade or sale to other players.

    Additional Facilities
    Each apartment building also includes a chocobo stable, which is shared with all tenants. Here players can train their chocobos and change their color, and also assist in training other tenants' chocobos.

    [​IMG]
    It is also possible to teleport directly to your apartment. Furthermore, a summoning bell and market board have also been placed close to the building for convenience.

    New furnishings have been added.
    [​IMG]
    Graphical effects have been added to the following furnishings:
    Season One Lone Wolf Trophy
    [​IMG]
    Season One Pack Wolf Trophy
    [​IMG]
    Aquariums have been added.
    After catching fish from the various reaches of Eorzea, players can now put them on display using an aquarium in their free company estate, personal estate, private chamber, or apartment. Please note there is a limit of one aquarium per estate or apartment, as well as one per private chamber.

    [​IMG]
    Customizing Aquariums
    When preparing an aquarium for fish, players can choose the type of water to fill the tank, as well as add an accessory for decoration.

    Water
    Before placing fish in an aquarium, players may choose to fill the tank with either freshwater or saltwater. This will dictate which types of fish can be placed in the aquarium. Please be advised that, in order to change the water type, any fish in the tank must be removed.
    * Freshwater and saltwater fish cannot be placed in an aquarium together.

    Accessories
    Accessories can be used to change the appearance of the water tank.
    * Please be advised that accessories will be destroyed when removed from the aquarium.

    Fish
    Open the Fish List found in the Aquarium Settings interface to view a list of all possible fish that can be placed in the aquarium.
    * Please be advised that any fish removed from the aquarium will be lost.

    [​IMG]
    Aquarium Capacity
    Fish have been categorized into four sizes: small, medium, large, and extra large. It is worth noting that larger fish will occupy more space in an aquarium, leaving less room for other fish.

    Size
    Space Occupied
    S

    4
    XL

    Aquariums are available in four sizes, the smallest holding only a single small fish, and the largest holding up to four. Because larger fish take up more room in the aquarium, one must choose carefully which fish they will put on display.

    A playlist function has been added to the orchestrion.

    * In accordance with this change, the orchestrion UI has been redesigned.

    * Playlists cannot be accessed from inns.

    [​IMG]
    Upon accessing the orchestrion, the playlist interface will be displayed. Players can select up to eight songs to be registered to the playlist at any given time. The playlist can be edited at any time to change the order or listing of songs to be played.

    [​IMG]
    Please note that it is possible for more than one person to access the playlist at the same time.
    * In the event another player edits the playlist while you are still viewing it, the interface will be closed and any music playing will stop to allow the playlist to be updated.
    * Free company members and estate tenants must have authorization in order to play and stop music, or edit the orchestrion playlist.

    Playback Modes
    You can choose from one of three playback modes using the buttons located at the bottom of the interface, or via subcommands after selecting a song.

    Play All
    Plays all songs registered to the playlist in the order they were registered.

    Should you wish to play a single song not registered to the playlist, the Select Track button at the bottom of the interface will display a separate window listing all songs registered to the orchestrion.

    The title of songs you have yet to acquire will now be displayed in the orchestrion's song list.

      [​IMG]
      Dueling Location
      Duels can only be conducted in the Dueling Circle at Wolves' Den Pier.

      [​IMG]
      Rules
      Victory Requirements

      A winner is decided when one of the two combatants is incapacitated. Players who are revived will remain in the Dueling Circle.

      Time Limit
      There are no time limits to duels. A duel will only end when a combatant is incapacitated. However, should a player or their pet step outside of the Dueling Circle, their opponent will be declared the winner by default.

      Restrictions
      While level sync and item level sync are not utilized in duels, materia and morale bonuses will not be applied during duels. Certain beneficial effects will also be canceled at the start of a match.

      Actions
      Players may use all available normal and PvP actions, and can only attack their designated opponent during a duel. Furthermore, players engaged in a duel cannot receive healing or other beneficial effects from other players.

      Starting a Duel
      While standing inside the Dueling Circle, target your designated opponent and select "Request a duel." from the subcommand menu.
      * Should you wish to disable requests to duels, use the text command "/duelswitch on."

      [​IMG]
      When your opponent accepts your challenge, the duel will commence. It is also possible to engage in duels while queued in the Duty Finder or when using the Party Finder.
      * Please be advised that using the Duty Finder to enter an instance will result in the forfeiture of any duel in progress.

      Custom matches have been added, allowing players to freely begin battles in the Feast between two parties.
      With the requisite number of players present, players can use custom matches to initiate 4 on 4 or 8 on 8 matches. It is also possible to invite additional players to watch via the spectator mode, which is explained in further detail below.

      Rules
      The rules of engagement and victory requirements are the same as those in a regular match in the Feast.
      * The results of a custom match will not be reflected on player PvP profiles, nor will they count toward achievements.

      Item Level Sync
      An item level sync of item level 150 will be applied to all players participating in a custom match.

      Rematch
      When a custom match has ended, both parties will be given the option to begin anew with the same parties. All members from both parties must select Accept Rematch before a new match can begin. Using this option, parties may engage in up to five matches before they must leave the instance.

      [​IMG]
      Chat
      The following chat channels are available during custom matches:

      Party/Free Company/Linkshell/Novice Network/Shout
      * Both combatants and spectators can freely use the above mentioned chat channels.
      * Use of the Free Company, Linkshell, and Novice Network channels also pertains to communication with players outside of the instance.

      Registering for Custom Matches
      A 4 on 4 match will require two parties of four players. Likewise, an 8 on 8 match will require two full parties. The party leader of the hosting party must target the second party leader and select Invite to a Custom Match from the subcommand menu. The party that sends the invitation will be designated as the Claws.

      When the second party leader has accepted the invitation to battle, a new window will appear for both parties confirming registration for a custom match. After both parties have finished making preparations, the host party leader can finalize the registration to begin.

      [​IMG]
      Registration for a custom match will be canceled under the following circumstances:

      - The party leaders change areas.
      - One or both parties change party leaders.
      - A party member logs out.
      - A party member leaves one of the two parties.
      - A new party member joins one of the two parties
      - One or both of the parties disband.
      - The leader of the invited party declines the invitation.
      - The hosting party leader selects Cancel All on the registration window.

      Spectator mode has been added to the Feast.
      This new mode can be used to spectate custom matches. Once initiated, spectators will be unable to see their own characters, but instead utilize a dedicated interface to operate the camera and observe the match from various angles and positions.

      [​IMG]
      How to Spectate Matches
      The hosting party leader of the two parties fighting in the Feast will target the second party leader and select "Invite to a Custom Match" from the subcommand menu. The hosting party leader will then target the party leader of those who wish to spectate and select "Invite Custom Match Spectator" from the subcommand menu. Please note that players who wish to spectate must be in a party of two to eight players.
      * A third party cannot be invited to spectate a match until the second party leader accepts the invitation to battle.

      When all parties have agreed to join, the hosting party leader can register to start the custom match.
