Square Enix released Patch 6.35 for Final Fantasy XIV recently which added a new deep dungeon called Eureka Orthos.

Brave the New Dungeon

Eureka Orthos is the newest deep dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV. What makes this place unique is that the architecture changes every time players enter the dungeon. They will begin at level 81 and fighting against the monsters in this place will provide them with the strength they need to carry on.

They have the option of leaving Eureka Orthos at any time and are allowed to return later and continue from where they last saved, so there’s no worry about losing progression. Those who want to enter the dungeon can start by speaking with Khatun in Mor Dhona.

This new dungeon has two items that players should know about. The first is the Protomander - an item with various uses ranging from displaying the entire map of the current floor to giving party members some buffs. Only three Protomanders can be held at a time.

The second is called Demiclones. Some treasure chests in Eureka Orthos contain tomestones that, when used, summons Demiclones that will fight alongside the player who generated them. Each clone has something unique to offer, so choose one that best suits the situation.

Patch Notes

Eureka Orthos
  • Orthos Aetherpool Gear
    • Players will be restricted to the use of an Orthos aetherpool arm and Orthos aetherpool armor when inside Eureka Orthos. In addition to gaining levels, players must enhance these items as they progress through the dungeon.
    • Note that Orthos aetherpool armor will take the appearance of your current gear upon entering the instance.
  • Floor 31 and Beyond
    • While floors up to 30 are related to the story of Eureka Orthos, all floors after were created strictly as a challenge for players. For this reason, you cannot enter floors beyond 30 with a matched party. Furthermore, in addition to completing the sidequest "Rage Extinguished," players must meet the following requirements to challenge these floors:
      • Start from floor 1 or floor 21 with a fixed party and clear up to floor 30.
      • Party KO count must be zero.
  • Floor Effects
    • Players may trigger the following floor effects:
    • Status Effects
      • Some floors may inflict detrimental or beneficial statuses on players.
    • Prohibited Magic or Special Actions
      • Some floors may prohibit certain actions.
    • Floor Effect: Gloom
      • Some floors may have strengthened enemies.
  • The Accursed Hoard
    • While exploring Eureka Orthos, players will, on occasion, discover hidden treasure known as the Accursed Hoard. While a protomander of intuition is in effect, an icon on the navigation map will indicate the presence of a piece of the Accursed Hoard.
  • Splendorous tools have been added.
    • By crafting or gathering specified items, players can obtain class-specific tools for Disciples of the Hand and Land which can be enhanced in future updates.
    • Each splendorous tool requires a certain number of items to be delivered to Chora-Zoi in the Crystarium (X:10.5 Y:7.7) before it can be enhanced. The requisite items can be acquired by delivering collectables to Quinnana, also in the Crystarium (X:10.4 Y:7.7). Please note that the requisite items will vary depending on the tool.

The full changelog can be found on the official site.

Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.35 is available on PC.
