Final Fantas XIV: A Realm Reborn Races Guide: Elezen

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn has finally been released, after being in development for some time. As Final Fantasy fans already know, the original release of the game wasn’t what people were expecting, released with many bugs and incomplete features that would have required extra work. Some of the Square Enix higher-ups have stated that the game tarnished the Final Fantasy brand, requiring a complete reworking of the game’s mechanics to make gamers forget about the original Final Fantasy XIV release.

As of now the game has been a smashing success, forcing Square Enix to stop selling the digital copy of the game to try and improve the game’s servers which have been unable to handle the huge number of log-ins in the first couple of days.

If you are just now starting to get into the world of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, you may be interested in our guides for the game, where we will be taking an in-depth look at all the races found in a Realm Reborn, as well as analyzing the playable classes and covering some tips that may make your life in Eorzea a bit easier.

Let’s begin with the races: there are five of them, with each one being better in some fields than in others. Knowing the races and all they’re capable of will surely help you in creating a powerful and effective character.

The five races are:

  • Hyur
  • Miqo’te
  • Elezen
  • Roegadyn
  • Lalafell


The Elezen are a strong and proud race that have dominated Eorzea in the past. Their dominion over the land has shrunk considerably but not their pride… or their abilities. They’re pretty easy to recognize, with their long ears, long necks and tall height.

The Elezens have great physical strength and this makes them perfect for all classes who make use of it. If you’re looking to make a physical strength focused character, an Elezen is your race of choice.

The Elezen are divided into the Wildwood Elezen and the Duskwight Elezen, with slightly different stats

Wildwood Elezen starting attributes : Strength: 19, Dexterity: 23, Vitality: 18, Intelligence: 22, Mind: 17, Piety: 21

Duskwight Elezen starting attributes: Strength: 20, Dexterity: 20, Vitality: 19, Intelligence: 23, Mind: 20, Piety: 18
