  • Trustiniative.png
    BGWiki's Trust page has had a major overhaul and redesign! It is now easier to browse through and edit all trust information. Best of all, this information also appears on all Cipher pages, and when one edit is made it saves everywhere.

Note: Due to our cache, edits to trusts are not immediately displayed. Rest assured your information is saved and will automagically update shortly after an edit.

May 2017

  • Our search function has been improved! No longer is it case sensitive when searching for two or more words. As an example, search terms like "ambuscade rewards" will correctly bring up our "Ambuscade Rewards" page! Please report any oddities involving searching to us on Discord. Everyone is welcome to join us in Discord and discuss anything with us regarding BG Wiki. We are always open to all comments and concerns.

March 2017

  • We now have Auction House categories on every item that can be sold on the Auction House! Look for this symbol to easily figure out the category for those hard to find items: Auction House 16.png

Ever wonder where that one guy is getting that constant supply of those expensive scrolls? Nearly every NPC-sold item now have vendor information on their pages. This is not limited to items purchased with Gil either. Sparks, Imperial Standing, Bayld, and more have had their item pages updated. As an example, check out Distilled Water, Lightning Threnody (Scroll) and Baraero (Scroll).

February 2017

  • We have full lists of armor and weapons on the wiki, which are divided by slot and type. These lists are also sortable by defense, item level, damage, delay, etc. This is a very valuable resource to use when you are searching for specific stats on a piece of gear. Remember, Control+F is your friend if you are searching for something!

Use the links in the navigation to the left under Items to check it out, or click here: Armor / Weapons

  • Playstation 2 and Xbox 360 support will end sometime in March 2016 or April 2016. If you are still playing Final Fantasy XI on either of those consoles, you can switch to the PC Version for free as long as you have a PC that can run the game! SE is providing the client free of charge. Simply visit this page for a link and instructions to download and install. Do not wait until the last minute to switch! You should familiarize yourself with the PC version beforehand and save/import your macros before it is too late!

This is a good way to see further information on an item if its page has not yet been fully updated.

  • November 16, 2012: In some regions of Vana'diel, weather is strongly seasonal, tied to the Vana'diel calendar. For example, the Li'Telor region has almost daily thunderstorms in the summer, but only a few during the winter months.
  • November 13, 2012: After completing the series of quests from Cid's assistant Raibaht (Teak Me to the Stars, Hyper Active, and The Naming Game), you can name the airship that appears in the Chains of Promathia storyline (and receive a hyper ultra cool title!).
  • November 9, 2012: The elemental damage boosting effects of Cumulative Magic and augmented Quick Draw (with Navarch's Bottes +1 or +2) can be combined to significantly increase the damage dealt of the same element.
  • November 7, 2012: Areuhat, whose story is chronicled in the Near Eastern classic Wyrmseeker Areuhat, has an insatiable appetite for certain... oddities. Try the quest Beast from the East to learn more about this legendary swordswoman!
