Welcome to Dimensional Death, a Final Fantasy XIV Free Company that is currently on Excalibur.

Our Free Company is based around the spirit of cooperation. If you are friendly, helpful, responsible, committed, and able to take a joke or two, you are quite welcomed to join us! We are still searching for raiders, as well as casual players and crafters. Part of the fun is getting better, improving your levels or equipment, and sometimes you need the extra help to do that. That is what Dimensional Death stands for. United, friendly, helpful.

If you are interested in joining us contact any of the officers in-game(Ayasu Lemieux, Celedh Knight, Haldis Omholt, Slvr Stryker, Taber Tia or Laude Valiquette). If you're interested in raiding with us, please use the Raiding Application link on the right side bar.

Even if you are not interested in raiding, we still like having friendly people, crafters for the housing, or just people to chat with during the slower moments.

Patch 2.5 Preliminary Patch Notes!

Today, SE posted the Prelim 2.5 patch notes. I'll post a few of the more interesting things here, but you can click the image below for the full spread!

New side quests have been added.

Housing Updates

Aetherial wheels have been added, which can convert stored energy into company actions.
Free companies can now charge aetherial wheels on estate grounds. These wheels acumulate aether over time, which can be used to acquire company actions without the use of company credits.

In order to charge aetherial wheels, free companies must first obtain an aetherial wheel stand, which can be purchased from housing merchants in any residential district.

The aetherial wheels themselves can be crafted using alchemy.

Retainers can now be placed on estate grounds outside the hall.

Dungeons and Raids

The PvP encounter Borderland Ruins (Slaughter) has been added to Frontline.

The drop rates for the following Extreme primal battle rewards have been increased:

  Aithon Whistle / Xanthos Whistle / Gullfaxi Whistle / Enbarr Whistle / Markab Whistle / Boreas Whistle

To improve visibility for colorblind players, the targeting indicator for Shiva's Icicle Impact attack has been adjusted.

In the event that all party members are incapacitated during the following trials, players will now receive the power of the echo:

The Akh Afah Amphitheatre (Hard)

Each stack of the echo will raise attributes by 10% up to a maximum of 50%.

The Akh Afah Amphitheatre (Extreme)

Each stack of the echo will raise attributes by 5% up to a maximum of 25%.

The World of Darkness, the next raid of the Crystal Tower arc, has been added.
Party Role Requirements
Parties matched automatically via the Duty Finder will comprise 1 tank, 2 healers, and 5 DPS. Parties formed prior to registration must also meet these role requirements.

Players can now obtain an Allagan catalyst from the Labyrinth of the Ancients and Syrcus Tower.
*Labyrinth of the Ancients
*The treasure coffer that appears upon defeating Amon.

In order to maintain the difficulty of certain duties, item level sync has been applied to the following dungeons:

The Wanderer's Palace / Amdapoor Keep / Pharos Sirius / Copperbell Mines (Hard) / Haukke Manor (Hard) / Brayflox's Longstop (Hard) / Halatali (Hard) / The Lost City of Amdapor / Hullbreaker Isle / Tam-Tara Deepcroft (Hard) / Stone Vigil (Hard)

*Any gear above item level 110 will be subject to item level sync when undertaking the above duties.

Relic Quest Changes

The rate at which soulglazed relic weapons achieve soul attunement has been increased.

TheThe drop rate for Alexandrite when completing a FATE with a gold rating while equipped with an animus, novus, or nexus weapon has been increased.


The level cap for desynthesis has been increased.

Skill levels will no longer decrease if your combined skill level is not at the maximum.

New items have been added to gathering points

Players will now be invulnerable to area attacks while gathering if they have not gained aggro from enemies.

The "Most Gentlemanly" pose has been added.

Attempting to purchase items consumed upon use that you already possess, such as chocobo barding or master recipe books, now will cause an message prompt to display.

Signs will now be displayed on the enmity list.

The /random text command has been added, allowing players to randomly generate numbers in the log window.

* Use of the /random command can be seen by all players in the immediate area.

I'm wondering if this was a typo or not but under PVP rewards it says:
"All players will receive PvP EXP and Wolf Marks, as well as Allagan tomestones of soldiery and Allagan tomestones of philosophy based on their performance."
I'm assuming they meant poetics but if not...return of the original tomestone?

This was actually a mistake and it should say Allagan tomestones of poetics. Sorry for the issues that appear in the preliminary notes and rest assured they'll be corrected when we release the full version!

The best part is how the time limit on Gilgamesh is of 60 players.

Gilgamesh is too awesome to be limited by minutes.
