Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers released Patch 5.05 giving players exciting content and new challenges. This latest patch introduces the Savage Difficulty level to the Eden’s Gate raid. This is in addition to offering players a new dungeon to explore along with new items to discover and create.

As mentioned, the patch adds the Savage Difficulty to Eden’s Gate. In order to access this stage, players need to speak with Lewrey in Amh Araeng (X:26.8 Y:16.4) with a level 80 Disciple of War/Magic after completing the quest "The Next Piece of the Puzzle." Upon completing Eden's Gate (Savage) duties, a treasure coffer appears containing an Edengrace Coffer. Using this item transforms it into gear corresponding to the player’s current job. In addition, the coffers that appear upon completing Eden's Gate: Sepulture (Savage) yield weapons.

The patch also adds the Dungeons of Lyhe Ghiah. This is similar to the Aquapolis and the Lost Canals of Uznair. The dungeons can be accessed after finding and opening treasure coffers obtained from zonureskin treasure maps. Here, players get the chance to test their luck and obtain priceless treasures.

In addition, players can only receive Allagan tomestones of phantasmagoria after reaching level 80 with at least one class or job. In relation to this, players can speak with Aymark in Eulmore (X:10.2 Y:11.8) to exchange Allagan tomestones of phantasmagoria for gear. Meanwhile, to enhance gear received in exchange for Allagan tomestones of phantasmagoria, players can speak with Shee-Tatch in Eulmore (X:10.2 Y:12.0).
