The following is a list of all elements in Final Fantasy XIV. Both physical and magical attributes exist in the game, however core elemental resistances are exclusive for specific content.
History[edit | edit source]
From the launch of the A Realm Reborn expansion through the launch of the Stormblood expansion, players had both elemental and physical resistances. However due to the lacking importance of elemental resistances in the relaunch version, they were removed from player stats in Patch 4.1, along with elemental defensive potions and materia. Despite this change, enemies and player abilities still keep their elemental affinity.
Despite not having elemental resistances in normal content, elemental attacks and resistances serve as the core gameplay of the Eureka series of content introduced in Patch 4.1. The content requires players to shift elemental attack and defensive attributes from the Magia Board wheel available in the instances.
