Cid Pollendina: Oh, shut up and help me remodel the Final Fantasy XIV attributes page!
Please expand this article into a full one. The following tasks need to be completed:
  • Full Attack formula for tanks. Currently only covers level 80.
  • Full Healing Magic Potency formula. Currently only covers levels 70 and 80.

This request can be discussed on the associated discussion page. Remove this notice upon completion.

The following is a list of attributes in Final Fantasy XIV. All abilities can be increased with different gear and Materia.

List of Attributes[]

Points[]

Attribute Effect
HP Health points. As damage is taken, HP will decrease; once it reaches zero, the unit is KO'd and must either be Raised or return to a home point. Regenerates over time, and can be regenerated using healing abilities. Maximum HP is increased by Vitality.
Maximum HP at level 80 is calculated by the following function:
MP Magic points. As spells are cast, MP will decrease. Is used as any Disciple of War or Magic class, but applies mostly to Disciples of the Magic who will use MP the most. Regenerates over time. All characters have 10,000 MP and a passive MP recovery rate of 200 MP per 3 seconds (boosted by Piety for healer disciplines), or 250 MP per 3 seconds in PvP.
CP Crafting points, used in crafting for Disciples of the Hand. CP will decrease when crafting abilities are used, and once the CP runs too low, certain abilities can no longer be used. For this reason, it is wise to be conservative with CP, particularly when lower levelled. Instantly refills to full when not crafting. Replaces MP bar.
GP Gathering points, used for Disciples of the Land classes. Required to use certain abilities while gathering. Regenerates over time when not gathering. While gathering, it will increase with each gathering attempt but will not regenerate over time. Replaces MP bar.
EP Energy points, used while piloting mechs such as the G-Warrior and those found in Rival Wings Rival Wings duties. Does not regenerate naturally, instead being replenished by specific actions available to those mechs. Replaces MP bar.

Attribute Effect
Craftmanship Increases the amount of progress that can be gained when using abilities such as Basic Synthesis, and helps finish the item faster.
Control Increases the amount of Quality that will be gained when using abilities such as Basic Touch. Ideally, both stats should be raised as high as possible to make the process much faster, as this allows the Adventurer to gain more value for each ability that uses up Durability, in addition to more value out of their CP.

  • Dark Knight Dark Knight's Living Shadow Living Shadow has the racial modifiers of a Midlander Hyur regardless of its owner's race.

Damage and healing formulae[]

Functions[]

In order to simplify the damage formulae, several components are broken down into smaller functions:

f(MAINDMG)[]

Function changes depending on the user's level and role:

  • Level 71+ non-tanks:
  • Level 51 to 70 non-tanks:
  • Level 1 to 50 non-tanks:
  • Level 80 tanks:
  • Level 80 Summoner pets:

Where Main Attribute (MAIN) is Strength (STR), Dexterity (DEX), Intelligence (INT), or Mind (MND) depending on the action used. These attributes are equal to the Attack Power or Attack Magic Potency attributes, and determine the effect these attributes have on damage.

f(MAINHEAL)[]

Function changes depending on the user's level:

  • Level 80:

  • Level 70:
  • Level 80 Scholar pets:

Where Main Attribute (MAIN) is Strength (STR), Dexterity (DEX), Intelligence (INT), or Mind (MND) depending on the action used. These attributes are equal to the Attack Power, Attack Magic Potency, or Healing Magic Potency attributes, and determine the effect these attributes have on healing.

f(WD)[]

Where Weapon Damage (WD) is either a weapon's Physical Damage (PD) or Magic Damage (MD) depending on the action used. Determines the effect these attributes have on damage and healing. If the action scales off of Attack Power, Physical Damage is used, if it scales off of Attack or Healing Magic Potency, Magic Damage is used. The attribute called by JobMod is either Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, or Mind, depending on the action.

f(DET)[]

Determines the effect Determination (DET) has on damage and healing.

f(TNC)[]


Determines the effect Tenacity (TNC) has on damage, healing, and mitigation. Only applicable to tanks.

f(SPD)[]

Where Speed (SPD) is either Skill Speed (SKS) or Spell Speed (SPS) depending on the action used. In damage over time calculations, determines the effect these attributes have on damage and healing. If the action scales off of Attack Power, Skill Speed is used, if it scales off of Attack or Healing Magic Potency, Spell Speed is used. When determining cast and recast time, it is instead dependent on the action type: Skill Speed for Weaponskills, and Spell Speed for Spells.

f(CRIT?)[]

Determines the effect the critical hits (CRIT) and the Critical Hit attribute have on damage.

f(DH?)[]

Determines the effect direct hits (DH) have on damage.

f(DEF)[]

Where Defense (DEF) can be substituted with Magic Defense (MDEF) depending on the incoming damage type. Determines the effect these attributes have on incoming damage.

f(BLK)[]

Determines the effect Block Strength has on incoming damage. Only applicable on blocked attacks.

Direct damage[]



Physical damage over time[]



Magic damage over time[]



Auto-attacks[]




Damage taken[]


Direct healing[]



Healing over time[]



Cast and recast time[]




Where Action Delay is the base cast or recast time in milliseconds (eg. a 2.5s cast is 2500ms). Astral Umbral III is 0.5 when casting Ice during Astral Fire III, or when casting Fire during Umbral Ice III, or 1 otherwise. Type Y and Z are one of the following values depending on the active effect, or 0 for no effect:

Type Y Value Type Z Value
Ley Lines Ley Lines 0.85 Huton Huton 0.85
Presence of Mind Presence of Mind 0.8 Greased Lightning Greased Lightning 0.95, 0.9, 0.85
Shifu Shifu 0.9, 0.87 Army's Paeon Army's Paeon 0.96, 0.92, 0.88, 0.84
Blood Weapon Blood Weapon 0.9

PvP[]

PvP content seems to use the same formulae as PvE content, but due to attribute normalization and the removal of critical and direct hits all of the smaller functions can be treated as being equal to 1. This in essence causes the damage and healing done by PvP actions to be equal to their potency before standard randomization and buffs are applied.

Base modifiers[]

The following modifiers are used in determining base HP and attributes, as well as parameters such as MP recovery and block, direct hit, and critical hit probability.
