Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker 6.08 Patch Delivers New Oceania Data Center And Class Buffs

Final Fantasy 14 Patch 6.08 is now live and fixes two of the big user complaints, server congestion for users in the Oceania region, and issues with class balances.

Oceania Data Center – Materia

The Oceania Data Center is a big upgrade that will help distribute Final Fantasy 14 players to closer locations to their area of gameplay. Previously, data centers were only located in Japan, North America, and Europe. That meant anyone playing in Australia, New Zealand, or any other region in the area, were forced to endure latency issues caused by accessing servers across long distances.

Players in the new Oceania located server regions will no longer need to access servers in Japan which should greatly reduce any of the previous lag they were experiencing.

To help with the transition, anyone chose chooses the new Oceania Data Center will receive currency bonuses and experience boosts.

Adding the new Oceania Data Center should also help speed up servers in other regions that have been experiencing congestion. You may recall that Square Enix had to halt sales of the game in December 2021 because of server issues.

Class Buffs Across the Board

Final Fantasy 14 Patch 6.08 also aims to fix some issues with class balances.

Instead of going the nerfing path which often annoys gamers, Square Enix has chosen to buff most classes. The biggest buff appears to be with Paladins who are receiving multiple attack improvements.
