Patch 6.2 for Final Fantasy XIV is arriving sometime in late August. Titled "Buried Memory," it'll offer a lot of new content such as the latest chapter in the story, fresh battle challenges, and system updates.

Players, however, are likely looking forward to the Island Sanctuary content and the adventures it offers. That's because this one allows players to build their very own personal island sanctuary. They can enjoy some solo content like gathering materials, building facilities, and caring for creatures even without crafting or gathering experience. The Island Sanctuary has content that when completed, results in earning island currency that can then be exchanged for special items.
