Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.38 arrives tomorrow, April 4 and patch notes have been published. It’s not a major patch, although downtime is 24 hours with servers coming back up April 4, at 3:00am PDT, assuming no delays. The reason why there is 24-hour downtime for a minor patch is because there is equipment replacement happening for the North American Data Center. Here are the major updates for Patch 6.38:
