In Final Fantasy XIV, the process of holding that enmity was complex, lacked an indicator, and was generally difficult to gauge. As part of patch 1.18′s major battle system overhaul, the functions of enmity which will be accompanied by the introduction of a new UI element,are being changed, streamlined, and improved to make tanking more straightforward for all players.
