Here is what is in the Final Fantasy XIV 6.21 patch notes
The 6.21 patch notes came out on September 12th. Under “playable content,” Square Enix lists just one change under housing, which is an adjustment to the illumination of the Pendant Wall Light.
The patch brings a number of changes to the battle system, however, specifically for the Paladin and Marauder jobs. This news will come as a welcome relief to players who have been complaining about not being able to complete the Eighth Circle DPS check in. For Paladin, there have been potency increases for Holy Spirit, Blade of Faith, Blade of Truth, Confiteor and Expiacion. For Marauder, there are potency increases for Upheaval, Fell Cleave, Storm’s Path, and Storm’s Eye.
Another change involves a 1% reduction in HP for Hephaistos in Abyssos, the Eighth Circle (Savage) boss. Basically, what happened was the testing team spent so much time on battling Hephaistos that they became unnaturally good at it. They thus overestimated how players would perform against the boss, and set the HP too high initially. With the HP reduction, most players should have an easier time beating this boss.
One more change is that when players enter Pandæmonium: Asphodelos (Savage), the Echo will now go into effect, resulting in a 10% boost to healing potency, damage dealt and maximum HP for players.
Along with those major changes to the battle system, the team lists quite a few issues that are now resolved with Final Fantasy XIV patch 6.21. Quite a few of these entail fixes to various issues on the Island Sanctuary. At the end of the extensive list, the team adds that “other various issues” were addressed by the patch as well. So, if you do not find your issue anywhere in the full patch notes, hopefully it got a fix anyway.
