Battle music is getting cooler too.
There are exciting combat system updates for FFXI players coming in the next big patch.
Until now, it has been possible to store character macro and marker data only on the hard disk drives of players' game machines. However, the next version update will make it possible to also store this data on PlayOnline's servers. Now you can enjoy the convenience of using your very own user-defined macros no matter where you go!
Read about that and the rest of the changes at the FFXI community site.
