Player History and More Added to The Lodestone!

Today’s update to The Lodestone brought several new features to the site. Most noticeable are the RSS icons for both information and topics feeds. But the best part of the update lies in your character pages where a “History” page is now available.

Many players have noticed messages showing up in their game log saying “You’ve defeated 1000 enemies” or “You’ve completed 100 Regional Levequests”. Many people speculated that these would be achievements added to the PlayStation 3 version when it releases in March. While that may be the case later on, these achievements are viewable right now in your character history on The Lodestone!

Update details are listed after the jump.

– Implemented a “History” feature which displays a record of any achievements the character has accomplished in FINAL FANTASY XIV.
The page can be accessed by selecting the “History” option located under the “My Site” menu and also within the “Character” section.
