Sometimes I say some really nerdy things.  You might need some help…

Final Fantasy Terms

Coil- The Binding Coil of Bahamut- the “hardest” dungeons in the game so far.  It was broken into 5 turns, though the most recent patch added turns 6-10. ilevel 110, experienced players only need apply.  Phd in at least two fields, preferably engineering and biophysics .

Bone dragon.

In the center, or pulled to the north wall, the great tank debate.

Crystal Tower (CT): A raid in Final Fantasy XIV- it is the first 24 character dungeon, requiring 3 parties of 8 people.  It’s has a reputation of being a disaster, as usually more than one person has no clue what they are doing.  Highlights include:

  • Bone dragon- please tank in the center Ultros server.
  • Atomos and Thanatos- It’s a race!
  • Vassago and Bombs, King Behemoth-please kill the bombs guys.  Oh and the Iron giant.  Don’t put the comets there!!
  • Archeron- get back to your pad!

FC:  Free Company or player based guild.

iLevel:  Refers to the average level of gear my characters are wearing. ilevel 90 was the highest you could get before the cap was raised this week. Now I think ilevel 110 is the highest.

Glamour- a way of customizing your characters look yet still be wearing the strongest/best gear

Hardmode dungeons- Previous dungeons…only harder.

Manderville moves:  A dance emote in FFXIV.  Just click here.

Myth gear- The gear you buy with Tomes of Mythology, a sort of “currency” in FF. You buy this stuff to get up to ilevel 90!

Patch 2.2- The most recent update to the Final Fantasy XIV game.  Has a bunch of new content.

Primals: In Final Fantasy XIV, there are bosses referred to as Primals.  They are basically Gods, summoned by beast tribes, intent on destroying anyone that does not believe in them.  There are a few different modes of difficulty: normal, hard and extreme.


Lord of the Crags, Titan. One of the FF primals, and the hardest, I think.

Current Primals include:

  • Ifrit
  • Garuda
  • Titan
  • Leviathan
  • Moogle Mog
  • Shiva
  • Ramuh
  • Odin
  • Bahamut*
  • Ultima**

Static- the same group of people week after week.
