The Bozjan war effort continues in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.45, and that means it’s time to once again farm for our Relic Weapons. Alongside the new quest chain for The Save the Queen story arc is the next Skysteel Tools upgrade for crafters and gatherers. Additionally, Blue Mages have received some new spells and content to enjoy, and there’s even a 48-man raid of sorts for those who live and breath all things Bozjan. Final Fantasy XIV Patch 5.45 is a substantial mid-tier update, and it should keep us all busy as we wait on Patch 5.5 and the inevitable expansion (which, as of publication, should be announced this Saturday).
