Some Final Fantasy XIV Mounts Will Now Be Able to Fly in Patch 3.1

Written by Lauren — 22 Oct 2015

Square Enix have announced that some of the already released mounts in Final Fantasy XIV will now be updated in Patch 3.1 with flying capabilities for 3.0 areas.

The 3 mounts that will see this massive update are the bomb palanquin, logistics system, and the draught chocobo. Unfortunately, as previously stated, these will only be able to fly in 3.0+ areas of Eorzea, so those of us who have not made the jump to Heavensward, won't be able to enjoy the flying mounts just yet.

Information on Saint Mocianne's Arboretum and Pharos Sirius (Hard) has also been released:

Saint Mocianne's Arboretum
"Saint Mocianne's Arboretum was once home to the greatest collection of flora and fauna the realm had ever known. Alas, in the wake of the Exodus it has since been abandoned, the teeming life within now roaming the halls with reckless abandon. A band of treasure hunters would pierce the heart of this leafy labyrinth in search of treasure, a treasure they claim would be a boon to Idyllshire. But, will this savage garden yield fortune, or folly?"

Pharos Sirius (Hard)
"With the siren banished from Pharos Sirius, reconstruction of the lighthouse is well under way. Or rather, it was, until an order of kobolds forced workers to evacuate. The Maelstrom has been swift to plan a retaking of the tower, but time is of the essence. The kobolds' love for explosives will surely spell destruction if the beastmen are not purged with utmost haste. Once again, Limsa Lominsa asks for your aid. Descend to the depths of the tower this time, and assist in defusing the kobold threat."

Recently some new screenshots have been released, but unfortunately Square Enix still hasn't announced the release date, but at the moment we know it should be some time in early November.
