The preliminary patch notes for patch 6.1 live, and it looks like we’re finally getting a proper FFXIV auto-target option. That could be a massive quality-of-life upgrade over the current, extremely limited auto-target setting. While the biggest additions to the MMO this patch were already noted in previous Live Letters, there are plenty of notable new tweaks and details in the update details.
When the FFXIV patch 6.1 release date arrives on Tuesday, April 12, you’ll find a new ‘auto-target settings’ section in the target section of the character configuration menu. This will target-based abilities to automatically select an enemy when you have no target specified, and is sure to be a lifesaver when you’re spamming AOEs on trash mobs in your dungeon roulettes. You’ll be able to choose whether the system prioritises the closest target or the next enemy in your line of sight.
There’s far too much in the patch notes to run everything down here, but some of the highlights include the fact that players can now be revived after falling from the arena in duties like The Navel and the Extreme version of Whorleater.
