When the A Realm Reborn update goes live Final Fantasy XIV is going to undergo a lot of changes, including the removal of certain content, so if you’re an avid player be sure to experience it before it’s gone.

Several items will be removed from the game, such as Guild Marks, achievements, and mounts, to name a few. Gamers may also lose certain skills or valuable items after the update, so be sure to check the list if you play regularly. A Realm Reborn is the official name of update 2.0 for the MMO, which will overhaul the entire game from the ground up including storylines, graphics, and combat. You can check out the full list of removed content below:

Goobbue Mounts

As previously announced, the goobbue horn, which is the item used to summon the goobbue mount, will no longer be obtainable as of the release of patch 1.23a.

Guild Marks

All of your guild marks will be deleted upon logging into A Realm Reborn. For this reason, we urge you to visit the guilds and use your marks before that time. After release of A Realm Reborn, it will also no longer be possible to receive guild mark refunds for previously purchased abilities that have since been removed from the game.

Replayable Cutscenes

As part of A Realm Reborn, the content of nearly all cinematic cutscenes will be reworked. This will result in significantly different viewing experiences for the same cutscene between the current version of the game and A Realm Reborn.

Character Histories

In A Realm Reborn, the date on which an achievement is completed will be recorded as part of an in-game character history, which will be maintained in a manner different from current character histories on the Lodestone. We are also looking into ways to have the current character histories remain accessible on the Lodestone following release of A Realm Reborn.
