Proceed to the thread.
* This feature, planned for patch 1.20, is still in development, and therefore subject to change.
- Achievements will be introduced in patch 1.20. Achievements can be earned by fulfilling specific conditions. Certain achievements grant the player rewards such as titles and items.
* Achievements, titles, and items will be added on an ongoing basis.
* Achievements are separate from History, the latter of which will continue to exist. ≪Viewing Achievements≫
The Achievements interface will be added to the main menu, and will provide information such as achievement conditions and progress.
Similarly, the category Achievements will be added under History on the Lodestone, and will contain the same information.
At first, only the names of achievement categories will be visible. Each category must be unlocked by speaking to the corresponding NPC, after which you will be able to view the details of individual achievements under that category.
You will receive a notification when an achievement has been earned.
The following achievement categories will be introduced in patch 1.20.
Meritorious deeds related to combat such as defeating notorious monsters and primals. Example:
- Defeat 100 enemies total.
- Defeat Ifrit in the Bowl of Embers (Hard).
Meritorious deeds related to character development such as class level. Example:
- Achieve gladiator level 10.
- Achieve miner level 20.
Meritorious deeds related to items and gear.

The following two types of rewards exist for earning achievements:
Certain achievements bestow titles upon players. Titles are displayed under Attributes, and players can choose the one they wish to be displayed, or none at all. Other players’ titles can be viewed on their profile screens. Example:
- Provider of the Realm: Achieve level 50 as a miner, botanist, and a fisher.

* Titles will appear with display names in FINAL FANTASY XIV Version 2.0.
Certain achievements (or combinations thereof) reward players with commemorative items. Example:
- Butcher’s Crown: Defeat 100,000 enemies total.
- Pick of the Luminary: Earn the achievement “A Miner’s Life for Me” for all three regions.
Each achievement earns you achievement points. These points serve as an indicator of your overall progress, and cannot be exchanged for items.
