Final Fantasy XIV Blue Mage update
The 4.5 patch for Final Fantasy XIV has some fresh details today from Square Enix. The first chapter of a planned two-part patch begins in January 2019 and with it comes the Blue Mage.

Producer and director Naoki Yoshida announced that the Blue Mage job will offer players a unique solo gameplay experience. There will also be exclusive job content for blue mages when patch 4.5 rolls around. "The Masked Carnivale" will then provide even more challenges to players once they reach the level 50 cap.

A number of other features were announced for Patch 4.5, including:
