FFXIV Wiki Wednesday: Drop Rates!

In Wiki by Gahoo

Did you see Hiroshi Minagawa’s post about Random Number Generators (“RNG”) and FFXIV? You can read it here… we’ll wait if you want to read it now. Interesting? Sure. But does it tell you what rate Square Enix has assigned to a certain drop? Nope. Not even close. Sure whether or not you roll a 1 out of 100 to get the Oil of Time that dropped from Syrcus Tower might be left up to the almighty RNG – but …

Help Update The Wiki With New Job Information!

In Final Fantasy XIV, Gamer Escape by Fusionx

With today’s launch of Patch 1.21 there’s a wealth of information being added into the game, new raids, new items, revised recipes and the new Job System! We’ve started to set up the base pages for the new Jobs but need your help to fill in the information about quests and new actions! You can check out the pages for the new jobs below. I’ve personally filled out Dragoon a bit, but once you add the actions and quests, the …

Wiki Milestones, Statistics, Improvements and the Importance of Community

In Final Fantasy XIV by Gahoo

Time for a little look back at where we’ve come from, where we are going – and most importantly – why we are able to create the best FFXIV wiki around.   Back in June we had our 1-year birthday – so I guess that means we are now approaching our 1.5 birthday – and we reported that our wiki had about 300 content pages with between 2,000 and 8,000 visits per day.  We now have more than 4,500 content pages …

Navigate the Wiki… on your own terms!

In Final Fantasy XIV by Gahoo

With The Wiki growing at a very nice clip (now over 1300 articles), it had become somewhat more difficult to find certain pages by navigating from the main page.  No more we say!  Ganiman took up the reigns and coded a nifty new wiki navigation (aka “Eorznav”) that not only provides a nice and compact way to navigate the wiki based on a default navigation structure, but which lets each user completely customize their own navigation structure! So if you …

Share Your Beta Experiences (and knowledge and screenshots)!

In Final Fantasy XIV by Gahoo

That’s right.  We have confirmed that, subject to the Materials Usage License, anyone in the beta test can now freely share their experiences with others!  So get to it community.  Share your thoughts about the beta of the forums, share your knowledge from the beta on the wiki, share your screenshots, and well… just share.  It’s a sunny day in Eorzea! So let us all say together one big … “woot!” NB: the comic on the right seemed appropriate, despite …

Happy Birthday Eorzeapedia… and Eorzeapedians!

In Final Fantasy XIV by Gahoo

One year ago today, we registered eorzeapedia.com. One year ago tomorrow, we posted – to little fanfare – our first post. Sure we had an ugly logo, ugly icon, and ugly skin – but we had a website.  We had a place to report on the news surrounding the development of Final Fantasy XIV.  We had a place to build a community.  We had a place for those eagerly awaiting any and all news about FFXIV to come, hang out, …

Official Site Update Part II: Limsa Lominsa Guilds & Landmarks

In Final Fantasy XIV by Gahoo

As we reported yesterday (or early this morning technically), the official site was updated late last night to include a lot of new information about Ul’Dah and Gridania, plus a glorious world map and some Lore.  But as Inaaca, an attentive community member, quickly pointed out, there was a whole lot of Limsa Lominsa information buried within the update as well!  Square Enix decided to reveal information about a number of the various Landmarks and Guilds within the confines of …
