Fans will even get one hairstyle which was runner-up in the recent hairstyle design competition. There is also a new Dodo mount and the next chapter in the adventures of Hildibrand quest-line.

With its own dungeon specific levelling system and some new rewards for completion to get into your hot little hands, Heaven-on-High is definitely end-game content.
This Deep Dungeon has a level requirement of 61 and progresses in difficulty as you climb through the floors. Floors 1 through 30 will provide the story related to the dungeon while all remaining floors are purely for providing a decent challenge for veteran players.
Final Fantasy XIV Patch 4.35 also introduces the opening of The Feast Regional Championship 2018. This PvP tournament will see players facing off in the preliminary rounds across North America, Europe and Japan from now until August 13, 2018.
The winning teams will go on to fight it out in the online semi-finals, streamed by Square Enix and then finally a handful of teams will get through to the European finals held at the Fan Festival 2019 in Paris.
Fan Festival 2019
