DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

See: Final Fantasy XIV - Dungeons and Final Fantasy XIV - Raids
      • Example Sentence: “I really wish more areas of this game weren’t instanced, but I really am glad I don’t have to wait for a dungeon to clear out of a slow party before I can play it so I’m really conflicted!”

  • KS
    • Kill Steal
      • Acronym, not used in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn because EXP and Drops as well as Quest progress are shared so long as people attacking the same mob (whether claimed or not) as long as they deal enough damage to be considered contributing. This was popularized and vilified in other games where there was no such thing as claiming and anybody could attack any mob. In such cases a player could be killing a mob and a stronger player could run up and deal so much damage that the player who initially began attacking would lose exp because their proportional amount of damage was lower than the new person attacking, effectively the new person “stole” their kill and their exp.
        • Example Sentence: “Thanks to the way Square Enix set up the claiming and proportional reward settings nobody has to worry about KSing anymore and those terrible griefers don’t get to ruin anybody’s fun.”

L

  • Lag
    • Term, used to denote that either the user’s internet or network is acting up or going down causing a slower internet and thus slower reactions and likely the inability to dodge particular mechanics, or that the servers for the game are experiencing lag due to any number of reasons. This is sometimes used by people who aren’t experienced enough yet in a fight to be able to dodge things reliably and so they’ll preface a failure to dodge by talking about their lag so that people don’t blame them quite as much for when they are unable to dodge.
      • Example Sentence: “I’m getting a lot of lag right now, everybody’s standing still then sliding around, I don’t know if I can dodge the next Landslide.”
  • Lalafell
    • Term, a race in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn known for their adorable and diminutive looks and often childlike portrayal. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Races
      • Example Sentence: “I picked Lalafell because they’re just so adorable and I couldn’t imagine wanting to be any other race.”
  • LFG

  • LFP

        • Example Sentence: “Tank LFG Garuda Extreme!”
  • Legacy
    • Term, used to refer to players who have been subscribed and playing since version 1.0 of Final Fantasy XIV. They get special perks if they qualified for Legacy status such as reduced monthly fee, a unique Chocobo mount and a few other items. There is a separate Legacy Tatoo that is for anybody who had a character from before Dalamud crashed back at the end of version 1.0.
      • Example Sentence: “I’m so glad I got Legacy status from 1.0, now I can pay eight dollars a month for subscription fee if I pay in six month blocks!”
  • Leve
    • Levequest / Leve Card
      • Shorthand, Term, Used to denote either a Levequest to be done, or how many allotments of leves a person might have available. The term is interchangeable between the two. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Levequests and Final Fantasy XIV - Leveling

  • LOL
    • Laughing Out Loud
      • Acronym, for anybody who has ever been on the internet this should be painfully obvious. For those that haven’t ever been on the internet, it represents a way to get across a laugh either derisively or genuine or to make fun of something depending on the context.
        • Example Sentences: (1) “I can’t believe we survived lol, I had like one HP!” (2) “Looks like we’ve got an LOLWAR in our group!”
  • Loot
    • Term, stands for treasure, see also: Drop.
      • Example Sentence: “We got some really good Loot from Coil last week, I got an Allagan Blade and Vincent got Allagan Trousers of Aiming!”
  • LOS
    • Line Of Sight
      • Acronym, used to describe imaginary line between a two objects, generally two players or a player and a monster. Most attacks rely on LOS in order to successfully go off and so hiding behind a pillar or wall can often interrupt most attacks or prevent damage. Several encounters revolve around properly LOSing a mob to avoid devastating damage, and PvP is mostly about LOSing healers and ranged DPS so that they can’t hurt you without closing the distance.
        • Example Sentence: “That BLM nearly killed me with Flare, but I managed to hide behind a pillar between the two of us and I LOS’d him so his cast failed!”
  • LS
    • Linkshell
      • Shorthand, refers to a private chat channel called a Linkshell where people group up and invite others to specific Linkshells that serve as a place of social gathering. See: Final Fantasy XIV - Linkshells and Free Companies
