Endwalker is just a few weeks away and the Final Fantasy XIV team shared more details on how numbers will change including the experience reset that is coming.

Your experience will reset with FFXIV Endwalker Release in December

The next expansion for Final Fantasy XIV is coming soon and will bring many major changes to Square Enix's MMO. One of those changes is the numbers cut. Yoshida Naoki and his team explained during a Live Letter that number had come too far and were now too big the game's own good.

The best way to solve the issue and ensure that the game's running smoothly is to cut those numbers down and go back to a simpler format.

The numbers cut will be applied to:

  • HP and damage dealt
  • Recipe progress and quality
  • Required and earned EXP

And to be able to operate those changes, Square Enix will need to do quite a bold move to make sure everything goes right and that they don't delay the expansion again.

In fact, keeping the actual numbers and recalculating everything would take a while, so they decided on something that would be better for everyone: reset the mid-level experience.

This means that any experience you have between two levels when Endwalker maintenance starts will be lost. This change will be done to:

  • Job/class EXP for Disciples of War and Magic
  • Class EXP for Disciples of the Hand and Land
  • Retainer EXP
  • Trust avatar EXP

The team explained this move as follow: "Ideally, each character’s current EXP levels would be individually assessed, adjusted, and overwritten to fit the new value scale. However, since every character has over thirty-five pertinent data sets, the total number of sets to be analyzed would exceed two billion (over ten billion bytes of data), making case-by-case adjustment unfeasible. Instead, uniform adjustments will be implemented, which will cause any EXP accumulated between levels to be reduced to zero for all players. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding."

This changes are made to make sure everything goes right and that we can have Endwalker in time so we'll just have to deal with it and send good vibes to Yoshi-P and the team!
