XIV Docs


There have been several benchmarks publicly released, which are modified client executables that replay several cutscenes (usually made exclusively for the benchmark) and can create character creation save data.

Despite the official FFXIV Benchmark site only displaying the latest expansion, all previous benchmarks are still accessible. An archive of all links are provided below.


ARR and Heavenward place the benchmark files under a /inst directory on their server. Expansions afterward, place it under a directory with a directory with a seemingly randomized string such as ’nr2xkhecw9vrkuqy'.
