I'd just like to thank you for working so hard on the FFXI enemy pages. It's sad that we have so few users who are interested in FFXI - really just myself (when I'm not gnoming) and TA, who isn't very active. I'm currently working on the FFXI job ability pages, but will chip in to the enemies when I can.

By the way, could you please mark your redirect edits as minor? They often flood the RC, making it difficult to see other edits. Thank you again! — YuanSalve!Acta 09:37, January 8, 2010 (UTC)

FFXIII Enemies[]

I thought we were going to wait until the English release comes out before we start preparing for adding the Final Fantasy XIII Enemy articles. Remember that the names can be different to the Japanese names. Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 20:10, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Of course you bring that up JUST as I finish everything ><. While you are right I didn't see anything about waiting anywhere otherwise I probably would have held off. --Adonzo 20:15, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

If it's any consolation there weren't too many instances of recurring enemies in case they need to be fixed come March >.> Only a few moved pages, was mostly disambigs. --Adonzo 20:19, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

Well, since you've done it I suppose it can keep until the English localisation comes out. Jeppo (Talk | contribs) 22:09, January 20, 2010 (UTC)

stop taking off the pics i put on


na im fine with that

Sorry about that[]

No, no! I wasn't ignoring you. I undid my undo. dude, that sounds so wrong. Judge Balthier 02:42, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

FFXIV enemy classification[]

Do you know if FFXIV have an in-game or other official enemy classification our pages are based of?? I don't play the game myself so I don't know. I ask because I changed some of your redirects to match classification on the wiki, but I think that maybe I was wrong to do so. For example, are Bats Beastkin or Cloudkin and is enemy family spelled Deathgaze or Death Gaze (these are the changes I remember I made)?-LeafShinobi (talk) 15:58, March 27, 2016 (UTC)

I undid my edits on your redirects and disambiguations (at least the ones I remember), I trust your classification is correct. By the way, would you be willing to update our enemy list pages for FFXIV or if you know if there is some database in the web with up-to-date classification?--LeafShinobi (talk) 14:50, March 29, 2016 (UTC)
Sorry for the slow response, I am currently in the process of doing a complete overhaul of the enemy pages (example here. For the most part there is no in-game classification or anything, and Square's materials on the matters are sparse. Most enemy families and such seem to be named or classified by fans, and I've been building based on half a dozen or so online sources, so there is certainly some conflict in the naming/classification without any kind of official word on it. There are some in-game tidbits we can build on - in regards to your Bat example, bats drop beastkin blood in-game (being mammals irl certainly helps too). Another example are Archaeornis - fans originally (and some still do) classify them as Cloudkin, but the flavor text on their Triple Triad card in-game states they are Scalekin. I may place a footnote at the tops of the pages that state that the names of enemy families and their classification is in many cases conjecture.--Adonzo (talk) 09:18, March 31, 2016 (UTC)
OK, thaks for the response. I'll leave the redirects as you did them.--LeafShinobi (talk) 19:12, March 31, 2016 (UTC)

Some FFXIV enemies stuff[]

I didn't play, so I don't know, but are you sue that North Shroud Lemur and South Shroud Opo-opo appears in East Shroud? And are you sure Tempest Biast is a boss (I had doubts about several other enemies' classification too)?--LeafShinobi (talk) 17:45, May 15, 2016 (UTC)

On the lemurs/opo-opo's, there is a levequest that states they are invasive species in the east shroud. The Tempest Biast may be more of a boss minion as it spawns midway through the Inferno Drake fight. At some point I want to investigate if the encounter ends if the Drake is defeated before the Biast is to test that - if the defeat of the Biast is necessary to end the encounter I'd say it qualifies as a boss. --Adonzo (talk) 04:58, May 18, 2016 (UTC)
Many thanks for answer. By the way, I suppose the lists may be incomplete yet, but boss Ser Adelphel Brightblade seems to be missing (his non-primal form). I think he is only fought in a fight in the Vault where he transforms into Ser Adelphel (primal), but he should be listed nonetheless, shouldn't he? I also have a question about Bismarck fight. As far as I saw, I don't think there's a proper "Bismarck" boss, is there? I thought I saw players damaging Chitin Carapace and Corona (if I remember the names properly), but I don't know if they're counted as enemies or boss parts and I didn't see them at Lodestone.--LeafShinobi (talk) 23:04, May 18, 2016 (UTC)
Oooooh fair point on the Bismarck bit, wasn't thinking when I plugged that in - source pretty much ran out when it came to Heavensward duties and anything past 3.0 and I just kind of winged it. And I did miss Ser Adelphel's hyur form for pretty much the same reason. I have now gotten to the point where I'll be trying to find missing info first hand or via youtube vids - unfortunately FF14 isn't as easily datamined as WoW. --Adonzo (talk) 04:21, May 19, 2016 (UTC)
OK, thans for the answer.--LeafShinobi (talk) 20:18, May 19, 2016 (UTC)

I've noticed that you listed Polis Gold Back twice. Wasn't the second one supposed to be something different?--LeafShinobi (talk) 23:31, August 18, 2016 (UTC)

Some FATEs[]

I notices that description of the FATE "The Way of the Samurai" from the Black Shroud is the same as "The Sting"'s from the same area. The same goes for "The Root of Evil" and "Yak it Up" from Azys Lla. By the way, I changed Anzu Hatchlings to Anzu Pullets in "Anzu Trois" FATE, because it seemed you changed that name on the enemy list.--LeafShinobi (talk) 23:15, May 20, 2016 (UTC)

Derp, missed those while mass producing things. Lots of copy/pasting here. Am currently on my phone and need to go to bed when I get home but I'll try to remember to fix those tomorrow. --Adonzo (talk) 05:59, May 21, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. In your latest edits, you listed two "The Enemy of My Enemy" FATEs, one appearing after another. From the notes below the description I gather the second one should be "The Enmity of My Enemy", so I changed it. I hope now it's correct.--LeafShinobi (talk) 22:27, May 23, 2016 (UTC)
Could you possibly check "Brick by Brick", "Brick by Gold Brick" and "Brick by Stone Brick" FATEs (North Shroud area)? I'm a little confused which one come after which, especially with '"Brick by Stone Brick" begins upon completion.' sentence appearing under "Brick by Stone Brick" itself. By the way, is description for "Brick by Gold Brick" correct?--LeafShinobi (talk) 20:33, May 24, 2016 (UTC)

Also, "The Killing Fields" and "The Last Straw" FATEs from Western La Noscea have the same description. By the way, can I assume that repeating verse from "A Fire in the Distance" FATE (Coerthas Central Highlands) is a mistake? Also, you changed spawn notes for Great Morbol from standard to FATE. Is it correct now or should it be both standard and FATE?--LeafShinobi (talk) 20:16, May 28, 2016 (UTC)

Many thanks.--LeafShinobi (talk) 14:36, May 29, 2016 (UTC)


Sorry for last time at "Copperbell Mines", my time for each edit is limited so I did nothing more than just removing tabbers. I was thinking to edit it exactly the same way you did then Arciele came out with a much better solution before everyone else, many thanks to him. Anyway today I'm here for a different edit, is about cellpadding. I seen your last work at "Aquapolis" and I turned it into a normal table. The result is almost the same except for background transparency. I'm not sure if there are issues with cellpadding code but I think table is just less code so should be fine. In case you think it is not working as you want revert it.
TTFan from JP (talk) 12:30, September 28, 2016 (UTC)



Japanese names (as well as French and German fwiw) can be found easily enough by looking up the enemy on, such as Denn the Orcatoothed. While the site is disappointingly short of information otherwise for a datamining site, it can provide the japanese names of pretty much any content in the game. --Adonzo (talk) 02:33, November 14, 2016 (UTC)

Thank you![]

For continuing the FFXIV character recategorizing! :) Mierna 22:52, March 29, 2018 (UTC)

FF14 renders source[]

The images I'm posting I got on artbooks, the others were posted on official social networks.

Specifically those of the Monastery I did not exactly where they were divulged but had several Japanese sites sharing them on the same day of the 4.5 release and all have the subtitle of the official arts of the FFXIV but I cut the image. (mustadio full image) -The HGX (talk) 01:55, February 23, 2019 (UTC)

"Why are guides being written without this information?"[]

Because we didn't have the information, and no editor has previously come along to provide it. p.s. if it's only literally the final level that changes the materia slots then that's still relevant info to the Use section.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 20:27, April 28, 2020 (UTC)

Fair enough. --Adonzo (talk) 20:32, April 28, 2020 (UTC)
Will you be able to add the level 6 weapon abilities to the pages? If so, I can hold off on writing the Use sections for the later weapons until you do. I'll also need to make updates to all Cloud and Tifa's weapons, as those are the ones finished. Only half of Barret's have been written so far.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 20:35, April 28, 2020 (UTC)
Making my way through, touching up Use sections as I go. I'll also need to boot up the game and empirically test if the high Attack stat on Aerith's Bladed Staff does anything since all of her attacks are magical. --Adonzo (talk) 20:47, April 28, 2020 (UTC)
Thank you! For the pages without Use sections yet (Barret's last three weapons, all of Aerith's), you can just fill in the missing abilities and I'll write them later if you don't want to write a Use section yourself.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 20:48, April 28, 2020 (UTC)

Removing links[]

Linking to the redirects is still preferable. If we ever made additional pages for "Rise and Fall (VII Remake)", "Omnistrike (VII Remake)", or etc., having links to them already would be helpful.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 06:11, May 7, 2020 (UTC)

Policy may have changed in the 11 years intervening, but there's literally a conversation on this page with ScatheMote about tag redirects not being a thing we do here. Been operating on that assumption for a very long time. --Adonzo (talk) 06:16, May 7, 2020 (UTC)
Looks like you did miss a policy change. Categorized redirects -- and links to those redirects -- are very intentional, for the reasons laid out in that forum.--Magicite-ffvi-ios.png Technobliterator TC 06:17, May 7, 2020 (UTC)

RE: FFXIV Models[]

In response to the images that Monterossa had uploaded for FFXIV characters, iirc he said he used a mode to view the models in-game and manipulate them. So I assume the models he used most likely had their visors on and off, so that's why Janremi Blackheart most likely had the hat that went with that gear set on. This is also how some of the Ascians have their hoods off in some of the screenshots he provided. As seen here, here, and and here. --Miphares (talk) 00:49, May 12, 2020 (UTC)

The problem is that in some cases it isn't just the equipment that's different. Compare this in-game screenshot of Moenbryda with the image Monterossa uploaded. While the gear is accurate in this case, her eyes, eyebrows, and nose are different and she doesn't have a neck tattoo in the second image, and it raises the question of how many other characters might look that wrong.--Adonzo (talk) 03:51, May 12, 2020 (UTC)
And given that it is possible for facial features to be different in the images, we have no way of knowing if the masked characters faces are correct at all.--Adonzo (talk) 03:58, May 12, 2020 (UTC)
Hm, yeah I see what you mean there. We may have to not take a lot of these images then as 100% fact, especially for the Ascians then. May as well try to take down the descriptions for these unless their appearances are confirmed in an official source. --Miphares (talk) 08:19, May 12, 2020 (UTC)

Jessie Rasberry[]

Hey I noticed you helped to fix some of my wording on my edits. Thank you for also valuing objectivity! I appreciate senior members of the community offering me feedback, though I was curious to know why my edit on Jessie being “presumed dead” wasn’t adequate being that that information is provided to us with in-game dialogue. I’d love just a bit of clarification for future reference. Thanks PHX101 (talk) 15:32, June 1, 2020 (UTC)

Re: Upload question[]

Regarding your question, yes: if you use Special:Upload, whatever you put into the "Summary" field is added to the page code (below the license if you select it using the dropdown). So you can just put the category code there and it will create the file page with that category/ies. ~Bobogoobo (talk) 03:20, June 17, 2020 (UTC)

Cool, thank you. I'm sure I knew that at one point but I don't upload often and probably forgot. --Adonzo (talk) 03:22, June 17, 2020 (UTC)

FFXV Character creation[]

FFXV Comrades has character creation, and the character you create appears in the main game once you beat comrades. I think it's an interesting piece of trivia because FFXV is one of the very few games that involve creating an avatar but where the avatar appears in very few cutscenes, is never forced in the party (while in most JRPGS with avatars, the avatar is always forced), and is treated more like a cameo character than a protagonist. Not to mention, the avatar doesn't fight the final boss, Noctis does, and the ending completely revolves around Noctis instead of them.Tokoyami no Nietzsche (talk) 21:56, July 20, 2020 (UTC)

Error saving data to server[]

Apologies for aimlessly shouting into the void. This (used the wrong link earlier) is what has been occurring whenever I try to continue work on Final Fantasy XIV quests today, which is incredibly frustrating as that is weeks of work at a standstill. Adonzo (talk) 23:56, 29 July 2020 (UTC) PS. and now the signature button is being wonky, had to type that one out manually. *sigh*

I've passed this one on to our wiki manager. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 00:43, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

Gone for a bit[]

Going on a poorly timed "vacation" this week, what with me being on the homestretch with weapon icons and 5.3 coming out in a couple days (was hoping to immediately update icons with that). Will resume when I get back. Adonzo (talk) 22:26, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Image size[]

Is there a reason why you have increased the resolution of some images to 250px? it's just because I was surprised that it got really wide compared to other articles. BlueAscian (talk) 23:51, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

There isn't really a right or wrong here far as I can tell—wiki policy does state there's no need to change thumbnail sizes, but to also approach it on a case-by-case basis. I've always felt that the default thumb size is too small to the point of having to strain to see the image, particularly for wider framed images. 250px has just been what I've always gone for going back ages as it feels a good size to discern detail without overtaking the body of text, though this too can vary. Trying to do 250px on Cloud Strife for example would be too much, with how heavy a body of text and how many images it has, but for smaller articles with few images 250px I find actually helps to fill it out.
Ultimately though this is kind of a failing on Fandom's side with its obnoxious sidebars turning a third of the screen into dead space. Compare to wikipedia for example, which has no issue with image size as it actually uses the full screen. Adonzo (talk) 01:08, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Humn I see. Personally I get a little uncomfortable with 250px, I kind of feel like the image is taking up half the free space, probably because of my resolution plus the sidebars you mentioned. Thanks for the reply, I usually use other articles like 'template' to create a new one and that was new to me. BlueAscian (talk) 01:57, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

article title for a 1.0 character[]

Yo, I would like to create an article for a 1.0 character that shares the same name as a character that appears in Ishgardian Restoration but I don't know how to name it. How better would it be, "name (Final Fantasy XIV 1.0)", "name (legacy)", "name (version 1.0)" or something else? and for the other character should I rename it to "name (Shadowbringers)" or what?

normally the 1.0 articles are marked as subpages with a "/Legacy" but in this case that would not be correct, as I didn't find anything like that I decided to ask someone.BlueAscian (talk) 10:40, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

This is for sure a different character? Not just a case of an appearance change that can be detailed in a BTS section? It for sure wouldn't be a subpage at least, as we're just trying to do away with those in general. I think I need more information on the characters in question, as perhaps something in their background can help to distinguish them, for example if one were from Ishgard and the other Gridania. Will also run it by the discord because I don't see any examples of a 1.0 page that isn't /Legacy. Adonzo (talk) 11:42, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
The name is Marcelloix, and it is just the case that you mentioned. The Shadowbringers character is probably a Weaver (since he sews clothes) who supported his family until he abandoned Ishgard and drank dragon blood. Meanwhile, the 1.0 character is a Carpenter affiliated with the Guild in Gridania and takes care of orphaned children. At first I suspected it was the same character but the only similarity is that they are both craftsman even though they are from different disciplines, in general there are many names of 1.0 npcs that were reused and if in the future some evidence appears I can merge the two articles myself.BlueAscian (talk) 12:22, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
Did some datamining through quest dialogue since I haven't done any quests involving him yet. For what its worth, throughout the quests Ishgardian Marcelloix is involved in he crafts clothes, salves, utensils, and instruments. There's also some casual dialogue from some NPCs "Let's take it to old Marcelloix's shop. There's nothing he can't fix." All of which would imply he isn't just a weaver and perhaps even has some carpentry skill if he's crafting instruments. However at the same time, there is nothing in any dialogues to imply any connection to Gridania or the Carpenter's Guild beyond maybe possessing some carpentry aptitude. And unfortunately very little 1.0 information can be gleaned from datamining ARR, and the only time the name Marcelloix comes up outside of Ishgardian Restoration related stuff is that it can be a randomly generated player name.
All of which is to say that it does seem very likely they are not the same character, barring new information. I suspect that Marcelloix may be the new custom deliveries NPC in 5.5, so maybe something linking the two will crop up there. In the meantime, Marcelloix (Ishgard) and Marcelloix (Gridania) might work for tags, but I'll get some confimation on that. Adonzo (talk) 13:57, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Really thank you for taking the time to do this, I planned to wait for the end of the ishgard story to create the article but I was already getting ready. The 1.0 character doesn't have a lot of information but he is the only relevant character in the carpenter's story and I didn't just want to ignore that. By the way we have an omnicraft dragon >.> BlueAscian (talk) 14:16, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Well it's been most of a day now and didn't really get much of a response one way or another on discord. I'm thinking Marcelloix (Ishgard) and Marcelloix (Gridania) is the way to go. Adonzo (talk) 05:02, 13 February 2021 (UTC)

Moderator nomination[]

Recently we've been interested in increasing the number of moderators and I'd like to nominate you, since you've been an active and trusted editor for so long. This doesn't come with any particular responsibilities beyond keeping an eye on Special:RecentChanges when you're online, and is mainly just a collection of tools that we can't trust new editors with: the abilities to delete and protect pages, no restrictions on renaming pages, and the ability to ban or rollback users. Would you be interested? Cat (meowhunt) 14:44, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, that sounds like a thing I could do. I know I've run into some walls in the past regarding not having access to some of those tools, and I am often lurking about RecentChanges even if there's no visible activity from me. Adonzo (talk) 20:06, 26 April 2021 (UTC)

Congrats, you got it. Let me know what description and Dissidia character you'd like on Project:Staff. Cat (meowhunt) 17:19, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

I could go for a Gilgamesh, though it might also be worthwhile switching those to Opera Omnia avatars. Only 6/7 OG Dissidia avatars left after four new mods get their picks in. For description, I don't really know, your nomination description probably best fits the bill. Adonzo (talk) 19:09, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

FFXIV Return[]

Yep, can plug it in there. Adonzo (talk) 01:08, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Yda revert[]

You'd have a point, except the entire article is about Lyse. It states she's a character in FFXIV, which Lyse is and the original Yda is not. The entire history section refers to Lyse rather than Yda. The characteristics section can only refer to Lyse, since Yda died before even 1.0. Literally the entire article is about Lyse, because frankly, we know very very little about her older sister. Your revert was unnecessarily pedantic, and I'd thank you to refrain from that type of silliness in the future. Kaedys (talk) 03:34, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

Next time you have an edit conflict with someone, please try not to immediately get hostile. I gave a simple, neutral reason for the revert to which you immediately jumped to calling me silly and pedantic. Tame insults, but insults nonetheless.
At any rate, this has drawn my attention to the fact that Yda's article (and probably Lyse's as well) has needed a significant rewrite for some time now. That will probably be my project for the day. Adonzo (talk) 18:15, 7 September 2021 (UTC)
Fair. My apologies, I should not have become hostile as I did. As for the rewrite, I personally feel the two articles could simply be merged, with a Spoiler header at the end of the Heavensward block, but I'm unsure. The character in-game certainly goes from being called 'Yda' to 'Lyse' after that quest chain, but it is still the same person, so my default would be that it should be the same article and simply have a redirect from 'Lyse' to 'Yda' (vice-versa could also work, but is essentially an automatic spoiler). Kaedys (talk) 18:30, 7 September 2021 (UTC)

Endwalker spoiler[]

I put tags around Vrtra being

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
will play a role as an ally to the Scions in Endwalker
Spoilers end here.

I didn't want to know anything about Endwalker and this is a big revelation that this wiki spoiled for me. This is information that is outside the spoiler tags, so why did you remove the spoiler tags I put in?

The wiki in general is trying to move away from using the spoiler tag at all for anything story-related, the logic being if you are reading anything story-related you should expect to be spoiled. Gameplay pages will be kept spoiler-free as much as possible, but First Brood is not a gameplay page. Also, that was poor use of the spoiler tag in general—the tag forces line breaks, and using it in the middle of a sentence or paragraph is a formatting nightmare. Adonzo (talk) 18:18, 13 October 2021 (UTC)

FFXIV HD Icons[]

Hey Adonzo,

The icons you have for the Removed Actions for all the classes has been an incredible asset in helping my revival modding project for old skills.

I just wanted to ask who provides those really high quality, transparent PNGs for this wiki and if they had MCH and DRK's removed actions available since they're not currently listed on the website.

Again thanks for your contributions to the FF Wiki and the FFXIV archiving, its much appreciated by history lovers like myself.

Most icons I've uploaded to wiki were datamined using Saint Coinachs after 5.3 added the HD assets to the client. Not all of them are quite so "legit" unfortunately. For any icons that had been removed from the client prior to 5.3 or changed to the grey strike-through icon, I found old lower resolution versions on other sites like Gamerescape or Consolegamewikis and AI upscaled them with waifu2x. So for those particular icons, this wiki might be the only source of them at 80x80, but they also might not be 100% accurate. Adonzo (talk) 03:06, 30 November 2021 (UTC)
Also, for the MCH/DRK icons you were looking for, check Category:Ability icons from Final Fantasy XIV—while the Job pages haven't been updated yet with the removed abilities the icons should still be on-site. Also check Category:Final Fantasy XIV Ability Icons—it's the old ability icon category, but many icons are still in there pending recategorization. Adonzo (talk) 03:18, 30 November 2021 (UTC)

Awesome this was exactly what I was looking for. Was able to get everything I wanted. Thank you so much!
