FFXI wiki icon FFXI Signet Status A Signet is a special type of status effect from Final Fantasy XI. They are mutually exclusive, though this is not a disadvantage since there is no overlap in their use. It also does not go away, as all other status effects aside from Dedication, upon the player being KO'd. It only benefits players on the original campaign map.

The labeled campaign map.

Having a signet will show that the player is participating in their country's Conquest. While they has this effect, a portion of their experience is automatically transferred into Conquest Points in areas subject to conquest. Conquest points can be exchanged for items and equipment as a sort of reward for their efforts. Furthermore, having an appropriate signet-type effect is a requirement for monsters to drop crystals when defeated.

A Signet is given the gate guards of the player's country, one representative in each of the opposing cities' embassies, and by all Ducal guards in Jeuno. The signet lasts a number of hours equal to the player's rank plus the nation's position in conquest the previous week—one hour for 1st place, two for second, and three for third. There are 10 ranks and 3 positions in conquest so a signet can last anywhere between 2 and 13 hours.

Conquest points can only be gained in areas subject to conquest, that being the main portion of Vana'diel in the 'present time' in game, all zones that were created before Treasures of Aht Urhgan and Wings of the Goddess. In game terms, this is the "middle lands."


While in a Conquest region with the Signet effect active, the following will occur:

  • Defeating an enemy that grants experience points (Easy Prey or higher), will earn Conquest Points amounting to 10-20% of the experience points received, depending on the region modifier.
  • Earning experience points by defeating enemies will increase the nation of allegiance's conquest standing in the region.
  • When defeating an enemy that grants experience points, there is a chance that an elemental crystal will drop. When in a party with other members who also have Signet active, there is a chance that additional crystals can drop.
    • Crystals will not drop from enemies in a region that is under Beastmen control.


The following bonuses are available with the Signet effect:

  • Increased Healing HP.
  • No TP loss while resting.
  • Bonus experience earned in smaller parties.
  • Increased defense and evasion against attacks from the players' auto-attack target (Even Match or weaker).
  • MP Regeneration while under 50% of total MP.

  • Originally, Signet provided no benefits besides enabling crystal drops and adding conquest points when an enemy is killed. However, due to the decreasing popularity of the Signet as well as regular and Rise of the Zilart areas in favor of Aht Urhgan areas and their sanction, which provides experience bonuses, Signet was changed to allow players to keep their TP while resting.
  • One of the things the player's Adventuring Fellow might say when chatted with is, "I just realized something. I've never once had Signet cast on me. Oh well, never mind..."
