Final Fantasy XIV players will have the opportunity to score achievements in many areas of the game upon the release of v1.20. The development team has updated players with a list of the achievements being considered for implementation into v1.20 in a working list of planned additions.
There are 12 categories of achievement with hundreds of options within them. So while the Battle category is just one group, it may have thirty achievements available inside.
The categories are:
Specific conditions are required to fulfill and receive an achievement. Some may be killing a specific amount of a certain type of mob, others might involve wielding a certain weapon or doing a certain action a number of times. Some will be one-offs as a quest reward or for finishing an instance within a certain amount of time.
An interface for Achievements will be added to the player’s UI menu. This will show both those already achieved as well as those that are in progress and the current advancement point the character is in.
Achievement categories (above) will be visible to all players, but specific achievements within them will remain hidden until unlocked.
A complete list and more information is available at the FFXIV website.
