The character tracking feature allows you to follow your progress through Eorzea with a timeline of events consisting of experience points and levels gained. Keep track of your achievement goals and view the full stat distribution of your gear.
Add your character to track your events, the system will also extend to your entire Free Company!
What data is tracked?
- Experience points and levels gained, per class
- Profile changes: Name, Server, Title, Race, Clan, Gender, City
- Free Companies you go to
- All 3 ranks for each of the Grand Companies
- Gearsets per class
- Minions and Mounts
Sounds good, what do I need to do?
If you don't have an XIVDB account, go get registered!
You need to add your character to the site, do this by going to Account and then Characters. In this section click Add Characters and follow the instructions. (Even if your character is already on the site, do this!)
Once done, your character will be added and start tracking automatically. It's like moogle magic!
What about my Free Company members?
Your Free Company is scanned when your character is added and all members in your free company are automatically added to the site and start tracking.
How long will it take to add my character?
Not long, once you've added your character in your Account, go make a cup of tea and when you're back you should be able to visit its profile!
What about updating my character, how often does it update?
Characters are updated automatically, the more you play the game then the more frequently you will update on the site.
The tracking server runs a "Auto-Update Queue" system every minute which upates several hundreds of characters. Queues are restricted to a "Last Active" time limit, which means that it prioritise players who play more often. If you have stopped playing then your character move down to a slower queue until you begin playing again.
Using the graph above, if you have played the game and had some activity within the past 3 days, you will update more rapidly as all 1-14 queues prioritise this date.
If you have not played in 90 days, then only 5 queues (9-14) will update your character, slowing the frequency down, this is normal as the system does not need to focus characters who are not active!
To improve this, the site will take your EXP and average over a "3 hour play session", and use that to calculate your EXP. If you played for 6 hours, this will just double the amount, if you play for 1 hour, you would get 1/3rd the result.
It provides a more accurate reading than suggesting you gained 300,000 EXP in 24 hours!
With the mass-adding of Free Company members, a fair amount of characters already exist and your character may already be on here being tracked!
