Final Fantasy XIV: PC update 1.19 – Does change list make game better?

We have some great news for those of you who have played Final Fantasy XIV on the PC. Square-Enix has just released their promised patch update for the game and as you can expect, it’s a huge one. Patch update 1.19 is now available to download and it may give players an incentive to re-install the game for those that became disillusioned with the state of the original release.

The guys over at Square-Enix know that it’s time to put their faith back in consumers eyes, as even Square-Enix CEO Yoichi Wada revealed recently that Final Fantasy XIV was the sole reason why the Final Fantasy was a ‘damaged brand‘.

Still though, there’s always time to put things right, and this recent patch update to 1.19 attempts to fix the game significantly. The full list of changes are too long to list here, but we can tell you that there are brand new dungeons to explore, new monsters to slay, new quests to complete and new ways to travel around.

Square-Enix has inserted a new gameplay element, in which the player can now rent a chocobo to travel around faster. It gets better too, as you can also make use of an airship now for even faster travel, which should please those of you who hated travelling on foot.

As with every patch release for Final Fantasy XIV, you can also expect a lengthy list of bug and glitch fixes too. One particular bug fix that players will be happy about is the bug where players could not log in for up to 10 minutes after being disconnected from the game.

If you want to read the full list of changes in patch update 1.19, be prepared for a long read. The notes are available at the Square-Enix forum page here. If any of you have already installed this new patch, we want to know if the game is better as a result. Is it worth coming back to Final Fantasy XIV or not?
