As everybody knows, Heavensward crafting introduced the new "Whistle System", which is an addition to our existing Inner Quiet system. At the moment, this system is NOT necessary yet for the current Master Recipe III items. However, we expect the mastering of this system is required to craft very difficult items that are to come in the future new patches. So it's good to learn your whistles right now.
"Whistle While You Work" (WWYW, CP cost 36) is a skill that creates a stack of 11 Whistles. The Whistle stack (W stack) is paired with the following actions into one package:
(a) Satisfaction (15 CP recovery)
(b) Trained Hand (32 CP) (progress + quality same time)
(c) Nymeia's Wheel (18 CP) (durab recovery)
All these skills require you to equip your "Soul of the Crafter" to use. If you have trouble with that, please visit:

So I'm just throwing this out there, because our guides section here at Realm is one of our greatest resources, and one of the things that draw people in. I get the impression that many people feel like that they're under qualified to write guides, and so they themselves don't participate. Why aren't you qualified?
"I'm not good at my class". So write about crafting or something
"I can't craft either". So write about what you do know
"FFS MATT ITS MY FIRST DAY, GIVE ME A BREAK!!" You mean to tell me you've had the game for 24 hours and you haven't learned anything that a newcomer might want to know?!
Seriously though, I recently wrote up a guide that was just about picking the right data center/server/class/job, all things that involve not even having started playing yet. I didn't know most of the information, I just looked it up.
So here's some ideas of guides you could write that involve all levels of know-how. Just remember to quote your sources if...
The Echo Podcast Crew is back!
Listen to our latest episode HERE: http://ffxivrealm.com/media/the-echo-episode-15-the-one-about-the-best-worst-of-2-0.213/media
In this episode, we're joined by Jinzuku, one of the moderators here at the Realm, in time for our review of the best and worst parts of 2.0. This episode was actually recorded a number of weeks ago, but due to some RL issues (read: getting slammed with work) it's been a long time in editing.
If you're interested in being a part of The Echo, we'd love to hear from you! Send us your plugs, you shout-outs, your achievements, your pre-recorded segments, we'd love to give them a spot in one of our upcoming episodes. And, as always, we're still looking for a crafter to come on and be the host of our...
Details regarding FINAL FANTASY XIV: Heavensward and all the exciting things its launch will usher in have been revealed through Letters from the Producer LIVE on multiple occasions. In this new series, we’ll be casting a brighter spotlight on some of the major things you can look forward to in Heavensward!
Today we’ll be taking a look at the three new jobs: dark knight, astrologian, and machinist!
The pious Ishgardian clergy guide the flock, and the devout knights protect the weak. Yet even the holiest of men succumb to the darkest of temptations.
None dare to administer justice to these sacrosanct elite residing outside the reach of the law. Who, then, defends the feeble from the transgressions of those meant to guide and protect them?
A valiant few take up arms to defend the downtrodden, and not even the holy priests and knights can escape their judgment. Pariahs in...

About The Jobs
- New stance call "Deliverance", increased damage and have its own stacks called "Abandon". Deliverance and Defiance can be switched and the remaining stacks will change to those of the according stance i.e. Wrath and Abandon will be retained and swapped while switching stances.
- A new AOE that looks like an Earthquake.
- The new buff shown on the HW trailer named "Raw Intuition". Guaranteed a Parry while being attacked in front, but guaranteed a crit damage if attacked from other angles.
- A crystal "taunting" move.
Well, after much work and sleepless nights, we're just about ready to show off our latest - and potentially greatest - feature here at the Realm, the Free Companies Index!
Oh man is this page going to be loaded with features for FCs! Our philosophy for this area was to give FCs a better way to market and coordinate with other FCs and recruit new members on their server. The page will be fully-open for members here at the Realm to create their own FC groups. FC group creators will be able to:
1. Create their own FC area here on the Realm equipped with:
i. A profile cover image2. FC group creators will...
ii. An FC logo
iii. A fully customizable description of their FC with BBCodes functionality, links, images & media.
iv. A Member Wall where members can post, like and comment.
v. A Staff Wall, same as above, but for FC officers only.
vi. A Calendar with full ability to schedule events & reminders.
vii. A Members list
viii. An FC photo album.
ix. FC Forums
Well, 12 straight hours at it and we're about half done all we wanted to do. Alas, time to set it aside for the night and let you guys back onto the site. Currently, there's a lot of stuff under the hood that we're not opening up to the public just yet. Consider this an open beta of what little we were able to actually accomplish today. Hopefully over the next week we will finish up the rest of the update piece by piece, as well as work out all of the tiny issues here and there that are bound to crop up.
So, first thing you'll notice upon logging onto the Realm today is the mass of notification spam you received about Trophies. Apologies for that. We've completely revamped all of the Trophies. Check out our thread on what's new about the user trophies, and what we have slated for the near future HERE.
Second thing you'll notice is that I've temporarily set one of our new...
The snow has fallen in Eorzea and the land has frozen over. Hey though, that doesn't mean we can't have a good time! 404 Guild Not Found is back with our friends the Treehouse & Resonate to give you a reason to look forward to the chilly months of the year. The Festival of Frost makes its debut! We've got trivia, anagrams, riddles, outfit contests, dancing lalafells, and even more to make you forget all about that frostbite forming on your toes. Seriously though, you should probably get that checked out. Here's the crucial information:
When: February 7th at 9PM EST
Where: Camp Dragonhead (South of the Aethernet)
Theme: The frozen tundra. Wear your icy shades and don your winter gear to keep warm in the frigid wind.
Why: Generating body heat mostly...
Join us for a night of dancing, food, prizes, games, laughs, and some surprises as we take Old Man Winter...
I figured since there's a pet-peeve thread. Why not make one that's well an anti-peeve. An accomplishment you do that makes you feel proud that you're playing XIV instead of wanting to rage quit it altogether!
I'll kick things off myself.
-Just tanked Ifrit for the first time ever, NM and won.
I went down during the last 5% of the fight but I saw an awesome Arcanist use Topaz Carbuncle to kite Ifrit around while the healer heal bombed the Arc. It was amazing to watch. Glad I was there to witness it.
