Bard Lore

The word “bard” ordinarily puts folk in mind of those itinerant minstrels, fair of voice and nimble of finger, who earn their coin performing in taverns and the halls of great lords. Few know, however, that bards in fact trace their origins back to the bowmen of eld, who sang in the heat of battle to fortify the spirits of their companions.

In time, their impassioned songs came to hold sway over the hearts of men, inspiring their comrades to great feats and granting peace unto those who lay upon the precipice of death.

How To Use This Planner

Creating the perfect hotbar interface setup in Final Fantasy XIV using a controller is clunky and time-consuming. This simulator allows you to plan out your hotbar layouts using a web-based drag-and-drop interface to simulate different configurations before commiting it to your controller HUD in-game.

  1. Select a FFXIV Class/Job

    Choose from and plan your hotbars for any of the FFXIV Class/Jobs

  2. Toggle between FFXIV Hotbar layouts

    Simulate either a W Cross Hotbar (WXHB) or standard Hotbars layout.

  3. Drag & Drop Actions to Slots

    Slot any of the Combat and Role actions for your selected Class/Job, as well as any Menu Command, Macros, and other Actions.

  4. Share With Others

    Once you’re done configuring your Final Fantasy XIV hotbar layout, save or share your layout with the generated URL. Use this tool as a reference to configure your hotbars in-game.
