Hello, Supernovans and welcome to 2022! Did you know that this year we will celebrate our 9th year in operation? All of the success we’ve had over the years wouldn’t be possible without you, our players, so we want to mark the start of this year with a great update!
This year’s first update is quite a doozy, so make sure to update your clients, sit back, and peruse all the notes for today’s update!
THIS UPDATE WILL REQUIRE A CLIENT UPDATE. NEW CLIENT VERSION WILL BE 30211225_1
MISSIONS AND QUESTS
Fix implemented for Mission 4-1 for (Windurst/Sandy/Bastok).
WoTG Missions 10-17 were added.
Fixed an issue where Minne spells were giving Regen.
Many many ID shift fixes
Implement proper logic for Sky Gods teleporters
Yellow teleporters to islands will now disable when a sky god is spawned on the respective island.
Treant Mobskills Leafstorm & Entangle work properly according to the NM’s that use them.
Ranger now has an A+ skill in Marksmanship and Archery.
Cait Sith Subligar and Pretty Pink Subligar have been added.
Models for Tier II Aern Weapons have been corrected.
Hellfire and +1 synthesis recipes have been added.
Omelette Sandwich and +1 synthesis added, and those items have been made usable.
Vrtra’s treasure pool has gotten a major overhaul!
Nothing else has changed with Vrtra, but we felt such a difficult fight should reward players with even more possible goodness. There are some new items in here, including some items that are very useful as cosmetics for Lockstyles – Aern Weapons!
Please note: A client update is needed for this update. Instructions on how to update your client for Supernova can be found here.
Expected Client Version: 30211204_0
Hello Supernovans! We had a quick update this week, and here are the larger changes affecting users here:
Text ID shift fixes (though another round of shifts came basically the following day?)
Spell Damage calculations updated
Spells that do damage are now updated with proper elemental resistances and weaknesses.
Missions and Quests
Again, missions and quests are all undergoing a rewrite upstream, so missions and quests will likely have varying issues. Please continue to use the #reportissue tag in the #ffxisupport channel on Supernova discord after exhausting methods of research (i.e. looking at the wiki for mission/quest order of precedence).
Various fixes in all three versions of the Magicite Missions
COP 6-4 now advances properly
Rafflesias now use Seedspray, which is also now learnable by Blue Mages
Wamouracampas now change stance properly, meaning Blue Mages should be able to learn Cannonball again.
Wamouracampas also now have the correct Defensive or Magic Defensive properties associated with their stances.
Marids now actually drop Marid Hair.
Job Ability Changes
Benediction now removes Petrification and has a chance to remove Doomed status.
Shaper’s Shawl now has its correct attributes – DEF 1 and Synthesis skillup rate +25%
Prism Powders, Silent Oils, Rainbow Powders, and Deodorizers are currently set at a 10 minute timer, but this will be reverted to previous values very soon.
Appraisal System for ??? Assault rewards has also been added.
A NOTE ABOUT ASSAULT: These are new missions, newly added, and still very much in flux. Do these missions at your own risk!
MOBS and NPCS
Manipulator pathing logic has been fixed in Temple of Uggalepih
Crimson-toothed Pawberry will now only summon Carbuncle during fights
King Vinegarroon is now no longer aggressive to players.
NPC Ghatsad (Puppetmaster NPC, Aht Urhgan Whitegate) now has the proper timer added for his Imperial Coffee fixation.
Pot-au-feu +1 duration has been corrected to 60 minutes
Job Ability Defender no longer strips Berserk Effect and vice-versa.
Fixes for Rank Mission 2-3 “The Emissary”
Multiple ID shift fixes
Please continue to be patient, quests and missions are continually being converted upstream to a new system and as such, odd behavior for quest and missions should be expected. Supernova staff will help as much as we can to resolve those issues for players – the best way we can know about them is for player to report the issues in our discord channel #ffxisupport with the hashtag #reportissue. Thank you!
This update cost us an arm and a leg (and a body, and a foot, and a head)
Hello Adventurers! It’s update time on Supernova, so here are some abbreviated patch notes highlighting the notable changes for you.
Please be advised you will need to Update the Client with this update. Our new client version is 30210706_0.
Missions and quests
More quests and missions are being converted to the new upstream code quest and mission system, and there are too many to list below so as always, if you run into issues, please report those in the #ffxisupport channel on our Discord.
One notable quest that is being added is one that players have been clamoring for for years!
Many of you are aware that basically as long as Supernova has been around, the process of obtaining Zeni for ZNMs has been to kill certain mobs – usually, Greater Colibri in Bhaflau Thickets (though, sometimes Clionids and Limules in Abyssea) – and pre-filled soul plates would drop off those mobs.
We have great news in store for you! In a recent update, Soultrappers and Blank Soul Plates are now working properly and all players can now obtain Zeni in the same tried-and-true methods used on retail for over a decade.
All soul plates were removed as drops from mobs as a result, so if you want to build that Pandemonium Warden pop, make sure to grab a Soultrapper (or a High-Speed Soultrapper!), some blank plates, and get to shooting those mobs!
All information about Soultrappers and their use can be found on the FFXIclopedia Wiki or the BlueGartr Wiki.
We’re proud to announce that we now have some custom commands via the Supernova Bot on the Discord Channel to give some more utility for users.
The commands currently are:
/website – displays the Supernova website’s address publicly /news – sends a link to the Supernova Blog /update – links to the Update the Client page /wiki – searches the FFXIclopedia, FFXI Auction House, and BGwiki pages for a search term.
Explanation for the Wiki command
The /wiki command might be the most expansive command we currently possess. It searches the wiki pages from FFXIclopedia, FFXI Auction House, and BlueGartr Wiki pages and displays links to those in the chat window. The results only display for the user who initiated the search, so there’s no risk of channel spam via this command!
How to use the /wiki command:
1) Simply type /wiki and then a search term. Multiple word search terms will work.
2) The results will display in the same chat window, but with a message denoting that “only you can see this message”.
Please keep an eye out for more commands as they come, and feel free to make suggestions for any helpful commands!
