Coming in 2.2 will be a new dungeon and two new hard mode dungeons as previously reported. Square Enix spotlighted the dungeons for a quick look into them. The screenshots provided do not tell as much about the dungeon. One interesting note is that these dungeons will be ilvl55 for their requirements. It should be noted that the last dungeons from 2.1 were ilvl48. So there is an increase in the gear requirements. However, Pharos Sirius was also admitted by the developments as being harder than the rewards granted. So it is unknown how that information will factor into the new Amdapor dungeon if it will be as challenging as Pharos are more so, but with greater rewards than the new hard modes.
While not confirmed yet, it is highly likely these new dungeons will have the new tomestones as a reward. It's unknown how they'll give them out, but best guess would be that the new dungeons will reward mythology and the new tomes, since the cap on mythology is dropping.
Looks like fans can look forward to jumping on a FAT Chocobo when the game launches for the PS4 April 14, 2014. Doesn't sound like a quick way to get around Eorzea does it? No worries! Your character will swing some tasty gysahl greens in front of the bird to get him moving!
The Fat Chocobo, as well as a Coeurl mount and Baby Behemoth Minion, are included in the Collector's Edition for the Playstation 4. Anyone who already owns the Collector's Edition for either Playstation 3 or the PC will be receiving the mount upon the PS4 launch date.
Now that 2.16 has arrived in time for the PS4 launch and PS4 beta test for XIV, a long list of new features and changes were outlined. For a between major patch, the list of items is substantial. Notables include, new rewards for achievements, refresh options and notifications for party finder, more Summoning Bells and Market Boards placed in wards, Chimera and Hydra DF, climate and weather effects on players, the list goes on.
Alliance members will now be visible during the initial cutscene of the Labyrinth of the Ancients.
Dhorme Chimera and Hydra from the quest "A Relic Reborn" can now be challenged via the Duty Finder.

The Letter from the Producer LIVE in Osaka ran earlier today. Thanks to the translating skills of Reinhart, we have a translation of the event. I will summarize everything that they went over in the event. There were a lot of things that came out of it, so the list is going to be long. There is still time before the Q&A on the forum comes out, so some of the answers are vague from them. There wasn't a lot of very specific, how is something going to be addressed, just that it will be addressed in some unknown fashion.
Starting the event they said that there are going to be adjustments made to dungeons that were harder than expected for the gear rewards, given comments later in the video, this is likely meaning Siren and Pharos Sirius. So there may be a gear increase on the rewards.
The low number of tanks in game is something that they are still monitoring. They did say that they have noticed a lot of people leveling tanks now, but that they aren't to 50 yet. There is a good...
