The Palace of the Dead employs a set of rules unique to the deep dungeon.
Players will start at level 1 regardless of their current class or job level. By defeating monsters that appear in the dungeon, players will be able to gain EXP and level their characters up to 60. The levels gained in progression of the dungeon, however, will not be the same as what players will receive upon clearing. (See Below)
* Players currently on their free trial or who have not yet purchased FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward will also be able to level their characters to 60 inside the Palace of the Dead.
All enemies players encounter in the Palace of the Dead will give a fixed amount of EXP regardless of the number of members in your party or the difference in level between you and the enemy. Rested experience and experience bonuses will also be ignored.
* Attribute points will not be accounted for in the Palace of the Dead.
There will be no adjustments to or restrictions on any actions, additional actions, or statuses. However, players must first reach the required level in the dungeon to have access to them. Players will even have the opportunity to gain actions and statuses above their current level regardless of whether or not they have completed the necessary class or job quests.
* Please note that players who have entered the deep dungeon with a class will be restricted from using any job actions.
Now that you know these updates, you will be aware on what to take advantage and avoid being at a disadvantage. To buy FF14 Gil is still up to you if you think you still need more in-game currency at your disposal. More updates to come from Revenge of the Horde.
Let’s continue on the changes made with the Revenge of the Horde update in Final Fantasy XIV. Knowing these updates will greatly affect your FFXIV Gil farming so read up!

Players will be restricted to the use of an aetherpool arm and aetherpool armor when inside the Palace of the Dead. In addition to gaining levels, players must enhance these items as they progress through the dungeon. Note that aetherpool armor will take the appearance of your current gear upon entering the instance.
* Normal gear has no effect on your character’s attributes inside the Palace of the Dead.
Strengthening Aetherpool Gear
Aetherpool gear can be enhanced by accessing silver coffers. These coffers appear randomly on each floor and after defeating certain enemies. When enhancing gear, there is a chance of failure that varies depending on the current level of your gear and the floor where the silver coffer is found. Aetherpool gear can be enhanced to a maximum strength of +30. In the event the strength of your aetherpool gear exceeds the maximum allowed by your current level, its attributes will be synced.
Gear Durability and Spiritbonding
Aetherpool gear is not subject to durability loss, nor can it gain spiritbond when inside the Palace of the Dead.
* This also applies to any gear equipped upon entering the instance.
Players will, on occasion, obtain pomanders from treasure chests within the Palace of the Dead. These items have various uses ranging from displaying the entire map of your current floor, to providing party members with beneficial effects. Up to three of each pomander can be held at any time. These items can be found in a shared inventory to be used by all party members.
* Normal items such as potions can still be used independently of this shared inventory.
Pomanders cannot be taken outside of the Palace of the Dead. When in a matched party, they cannot be used after the completion of a set of floors. Pomanders that affect the map cannot be overwritten with the same item when their effect is already in play. Please note, however, that they will still be consumed upon use.
Certain pomanders can be used to transform the player into an enemy NPC. The effect lasts for one minute, and will grant the user a different attack for the duration.
Now that you know these updates, you will be aware on what to take advantage and avoid being at a disadvantage. Get out there and conquer the new challenges!
