    The latest in the previews for Patch 2.1 from Square Enix come as the four new primal battles. Three of the primal battles are simple harder versions of the Hard Mode Ifrit, Titan and Garuda. The new Extreme Mode versions are unlocked after defeating Titan Hard Mode, but the order is different. In the story or Normal Mode versions, Ifrit is the easiest followed by Titan and then Garuda. In the Hard Mode versions Ifrit is the easiest as well, but Garuda follows with Titan as the last. Now the Extreme Mode changes the order again with Garuda as the easiest followed by Titan and then Ifrit finishing as the hardest battle. Each will have an item level requirement, something new added to the Duty Finder to address problems with players too undergeared to compete.

    The Extreme Mode battles will also drop an item level 90 weapon for players that complete all three primals in the week. Players will only get a drop once a week and the battles much be win in the week before the reset on Monday.

    The newest Primal battle is not a Primal, but a returning battle from 1.0 with Good King Moggle Mog, which is designed as a battle in difficulty of being between Garuda Hard Mode and Titan Hard Mode. They realized that the gap in challenge between Garuda and Titan was too great and decide to have the Mog fight bridge that gap. The Mog battle will drop moogle specific gear.

    Full details are below.
