All additions to the Duty Support system in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.2

Bring your favorite NPCs along for the ride.

MMORPGs are, by their nature, multi-player experiences. But it's not surprising that some Final Fantasy fans want to play through FFXIV just for the storyline. Also, as the main bulk of players has moved on through the game, some group content can become poorly populated. The Duty Support system solves these problems, allowing you to take some of your favorite NPCs into instanced dungeons. So, what additions have been made to the Final Fantasy XIV Duty Support system in Patch 6.2?
