Square Enix has revealed the FFXIV patch 6.35 release date, and there’s great news – you’ll only be waiting until next week to uncover the buried secrets of Eureka Orthos, help out the lovely Loporrits, and go on new Hildibrand Adventures in the critically acclaimed MMORPG. There’s plenty to look forward to in this interim update following FFXIV patch 6.3, so read on to find out what’s in store.

The new deep dungeon is called Eureka Orthos, and it’s promising to be the toughest take on the roguelike-style mode yet. You’ll need to be level 81 or above to enter, and you’ll already need to have beaten floor 50 of the original deep dungeon, Palace of the Dead, which Yoshida says he considers a “tutorial” for what’s to come.

The Loporrit tribal quests are also finally releasing this patch, and a preview image on the special site showcases an emote that looks to let you show off a fine set of Loporrit-style ears (hopefully they’re artificial). We’ll also get to go on Somehow Further Hildibrand adventures with the lovable gentleman investigator and his trusty assistant Nashu – and I can’t wait.

New tool enhancement quests are scheduled to land with the patch as well, and Yoshida has already teased the return of Skysteel tools during Live Letter 74. But what about the Blue Mage, I hear you cry Unfortunately, despite many player requests it’s not currently at the top of the cards; Yoshida promises, “We will do Blue Mage at some point but please wait a bit more.”
