Following news that a Final Fantasy XI guild had to back out of a battle with game boss Pandemonium Warden after 18 hours and physical sickness from players, Square Enix has admitted the challenge may be a little overboard.

“Included in the version update scheduled for early September will be modifications to the degree of difficulty of Pandemonium Warden (and associated pets), Absolute Virtue (and associated pets), and Jailer of Love,” said the company on the official FFXI site.

“The aim of these changes is to create battles where a decisive outcome may be reached within a shorter period of time.”
