Further details on changes we can expect on the pending 2.05 patch (due tomorrow 15th October).

. Changes will be made to the way equipment is bound.
. Introducing additional servers and enhancements to act as a countermeasure against the congestion to enter “Amdapor Keep.”
. The difficulty for level 50 dungeons will be adjusted. (They also talked about improving things so there’s reasons to kill trash mobs but provided no details yet.)
. The number of areas where you can acquire Allagan Tomestones of Philosophy and Mythology will be increased as well as the amount you can acquire.
. Implementation of a population cap for each field (This is actually coming on October 11th and details have yet to be released. This kind of sounds like population control for FATEs though.)
. Adjustments to the spawn rate of monsters that drop diremite web and additional locations where Karakul can be found.
. The amount of experience points that can be acquired on botanist and miner, as well the experience points that can be acquired from their fieldcraft leves, will be increased. (Welcome news to a ton of players, incidentally Fishing will remain as is…because it’s awesome)
. User interface elements related to materia and target information will be adjusted.
. Bug where the Duty Finder places you in a group that has completed the dungeon will be fixed.
