Final Fantasy XIV has been doing a great job of giving players more and more content for them to enjoy. This includes major updates, expansions, new jobs, and refinements to the game overall. Now, on October 10th, a new update is about to arrive via the Hidden Canals Of Uznair, and the team at Square Enix wanted to give you some more information about the canals themselves, as well as what you can do while you’re there. Here are the details.
First, just getting to the Hidden Canals is a troublesome thing, as you’re going to need the Timeworn Thief’s Map just to access it. But fear not, there is a way to get it. In the Lost Canals Of Uznair (different section), you might be able to find the map within the treasure coffers. So go and check and see if you can get it.
Once you get the map, you’ll have to read it and then discern where the entrance to the Hidden Canals are. If you find it, you’ll be able to use the “Dig” function to get into them. Warning though, you could teleport underwater upon finding the entrance. You’ve been warned.
Now, to be clear, the Hidden Canals are a much tougher challenge than the Lost Canals. So much so that the Square Enix team humbly recommends that you not only have a worthy team with you, but a numerous one. They recommend a team of 8 when you go into these tunnels.
But, if you make it through, you’ll get the chance to get some great rewards. The key word here though is “chance”. For an item called Abharamu’s Lure will test you in a game of high/low, and if you do well, you’ll get a lot. Lose, and you’ll lose it all.
So be ready for the newest Final Fantasy XIV update, it’ll be arriving soon.
