Hello and welcome to my not-all-that-short-anymore guide to Final Fantasy XIV‘s gear.

Please note that it contains no information on crafted or PvP gear, focusing instead on drops from dungeons and raids, and items purchaseable with tokens from dungeons and raids.

As the game is patched, I will pick out new entries so that they are easier to see.

A Note on Tomestones

Allagan Tomestone of Soldiery (abbrv. — ToS/Soldiery) are acquired from dungeon, trial, and raids bosses, as rewards from beast tribe quests, and as bonus incentives for using the Duty Roulette. You can carry a maximum of 2000, with no cap on how many are obtainable per week.

Allagan Tomestones of Poetics (abbrv. — ToP) are acquired from the final bosses of dungeons, trials, and raids, and are a bonus incentive for using the Duty Roulette: Expert/Trial/High Level. You can carry a maximum of 2000, with a cap of 450 obtainable per week.
