Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood’s Patch 4.5 Releases Today

With the release of Patch 4.5 today for Final Fantasy XIV, we begin to see the conclusion of the Stormblood storyline. The content of 4.5 is preparing us for the next expansion, Shadowbringers. This includes the third and final chapter of the Return to Ivalice Alliance Raid series, new main scenario quests, and much more. The full patch notes can be found in the link below. Blue Mage arrives in 4.5, on January 15th. This first “limited” job arrives a week after the patch, and will provide a unique solo gameplay experience.
