Patch 5.45 for Final Fantasy XIV is on its way and it will bring a couple of new additions to the game.
Let's take a look at what's included within this update.
Patch 5.45 content
This update will focus on two things primarily: expanding the Save the Queen Relic Weapon questline and adding more things to do for the Blue Mage job.
For the questline, a new battle of big proportions called Delubrum Reginae will be added to the game. This is set to take place on the remains of the Queen Gunnhildr’s kingdom as seen in the screenshot below.
On the other hand, the Blue Mage job is about to get a bit more interesting with some of these additions.
First of all, the patch will implement some new spells for Blue Mage to learn. Alongside that, the level cap of the job will be raised to 70 and a new set of gear will be available to obtain.
On top of all that, the Skysteel Tools Upgrade questline will receive a couple of new additions with this patch. At the time of writing, there is still not much information about this content, but we wong have to wait much to learn about that...
When is this new update coming?
According to the site 4Gamer, patch 5.45 is schedule to arrive on Tuesday, February 5th on all platforms (PC, PlayStation 4, and MAC).
We are expecting the full patch notes to be revealed that same day on the official website for the game.

The livestream will begin at 5:30pm PT/8:30pm ET on February 5, 2021 and 1:30am GMT/2:30am CET/10:30am JST on February 6, 2021.
