FFXIV: Great Lodestone Redesign – Make a Character Card!

Though I use the Lodestone as a tool all the time, I rarely write a post about it. Let it be known that I have great appreciation that the Lodestone exists – it’s a reference for characters, free companies, collections and much more!

Yesterday, the Lodestone got a neat update to the main page – find the link here (for NA users). You must be logged in to a character to see the redesign.

Not only did this main landing page get a nice redesign with a more helpful layout to all the working parts relevant to your character, but we also got a neat character bar at the top of the page that looks like this:

Similar to a character card, it has information about all your jobs, your FC… and something with circles and rings. I poked around and I’m not quite sure what those mean, but they’re different for me between my characters. If anyone does know, please leave a comment and share the knowledge! (Update: Logan from the Super Dungeon Friends Discord channel clarified that these symbols indicated elemental level for Eurkea and resistance level for Bozja.)

Keep in mind that whatever class you logged out on is what is going to show here. Also keep in mind that the Lodestone takes some time to update information, so if you’re shooting for a particular class/glamour, give it some time to update.

You can easily just print screen the page, drop that in any image program, and crop it into a banner like so:

Just a small thing, but a neat thing if you don’t want to turn to third party tools to make a character banner or card!

Thanks for the update, Lodestone!
