The 10 Tribes Of Final Fantasy XIV - Oh Look, Dark Elves!

Sure, Final Fantasy XIV only has five races that are renamed versions of the races from Final Fantasy XI, but with two tribes each, that's like ten races total! Let's take a look at them, shall we?

The Japanese Final Fantasy IV site now formally splits each of the game's five races into two separate tribes, depicted in the pictures below, while a translation from of a Famitsu article at FFXIVCore.com covering the update provides us information about the differences between each tribe.

The human-looking Hyuran are split between the intelligent Midlanders and the burly Highlanders.

The catlike Miqo'te are made up of the nocturnal Keepers of the Moon and the day active Seekers of the Sun.

The elvish Elezen are divided as the more traditional Foresters and the dark-dwelling Shaders - that's right, Final Fantasy XIV has dark elves.

The hulking Roegadyn are represented by the Seewolf clan of sailors and the volcano-guarding Lohengarde.

Finally, fans of those cute little things can either play Plainsfolk or Dunefolk, both equally adorable.

I'm not even going to say what race I plan to play, as you'll all just call me a furry.

I just hope they make the UI more modern, I played FF11 for 2 years after it first came out. I loved it (mostly, there was a some hate there as well including the clunky UI).

I recently re-purchased the game on Steam (it was $2.50 for the Complete Collection! I couldnt pass that up) and tried to get back into just for fun. The UI makes it unplayable to me now and I gave up.

If they upgrade the UI, make the dungeons instances, and keep on top of the economy so prices arent off the scale for the average players (due to all the bot farmers, no lifers, and Japanese players with a year head start in FF11) consider this game bought and played by moi.

Oh and for the record I WILL be playing Tarutaru, I mean "Plainsfolk" or "Dunesfolk", like I did in the first. Nothing more gnarly than a teeny tiny Ninja tanking a boss monster!
