FFXIV 6.48 micro-patch tweaks PvP, splits Radz-at-Han into instances

A small patch ahead of the bigger changes!

We’re still a long way out from Patch 6.5 of Final Fantasy XIV, and to tide us over, Square Enix has made some tweaks, changes, and PvP alterations in the 6.48 micro-patch. Why do we call it a micro-patch? Well, there are only a few changes, and we’ll go over them below!

FFXIV 6.48 patch notes

Here are all the 6.48 patch notes:

Job Changes


  • Blade of Faith: Potency has been increased from 4,000 to 6,000.
  • Blade of Truth: Potency has been increased from 6,000 to 7,000.


  • Draw and Junction: Can now be used to target self and party members.

Black Mage

  • Soul Resonance: Now grants the effect Apocatastasis.

White Mage

  • Miracle of Nature: Recast time has been increased from 25 to 30 seconds.
  • Afflatus Purgation: Cure potency of the Regen effect granted by Temperance has been reduced from 4,000 to 3,000.


  • Aspected Benefic: Cure potency of Diurnal Benefic has been increased from 1,000 to 2,000.
  • Effect duration of Diurnal Benefic has been increased from 12 to 15 seconds.
  • Barrier potency of Nocturnal Benefic has been increased from 4,000 to 5,000.

Common Action Changes

Crystalline Conflict changes

  • Season Seven will end and Season Eight will begin.
  • When the season ends, the top 100 ranking players from each data center will receive vouchers via the moogle delivery service.
  • Players finishing in bronze tier or higher can claim rewards by speaking with the Seasonal Quartermaster at the Wolves' Den Pier (X:4.9 Y:5.7).
  • Tier rewards for Season Seven must be claimed before the end of Season Eight.
  • Players will begin Season Eight five risers lower than the rank at which they finished Season Seven. Rising Stars will be reset to zero.

PvP Changes

  • The commendation quartermaster NPC has been moved to (X:4.5 Y:6.2) on Wolves' Den Pier.

General Changes

  • The division of Radz-at-Han into multiple instances, added to alleviate congestion in Patch 6.4, will be removed.

Overall, this small litany of changes will not have a huge effect, but it's good to see Radz-at-Han get split into instances. With so many people grinding through Hildibrand Relic Weapons and upgrading gear, it was getting difficult to click on NPCs.
