Frequently Asked Questions
Why get the FFXIV Friendship Circlet?
Simply, the FFXIV Friendship Circlet is a nice item to have early on because it will give your character 20% more EXP until Level 25. This gives you a head start in the game, allowing you to progress quickly and upgrade your character faster.
Who to give your FFXIV Friendship Circlet to?
While it’s not possible to give away the FFXIV Friendship Circlet to someone, you can recruit a new player and give them one. So the question, really, is who to choose when recruiting someone for FFXIV. Hopefully you find someone that enjoys RPGs as much as you do!
What to do with the FFXIV Friendship Circlet?
Equip it! This is especially true for brand new characters. For new players, you’ll get a nice buff to your EXP, allowing you to progress much faster.
When to use the FFXIV Friendship Circlet
Because the Friendship Circlet only gives you the 20% buff to EXP earned when 25th level and below, it makes sense to use it as early on in your character’s journey as possible. After 25th level, it will provide no additional experience.
But if your character’s level is over 25, don’t worry! As you’re probably aware, there are dungeons available that will sync your level, in some cases below Level 25. If that’s the case, a character over Level 25 queueing into a low level dungeon (under 25), with the Friendship Circlet equipped, will still gain the 20% EXP.
