FFXIV: How to Make Your Own Adventurer Plate

With the release of Patch 6.1, Final Fantasy XIV players have a new way to express themselves. Players can customize their very own adventurer plates.

With the release of patch 6.1 for Final Fantasy XIV, players have gained access to the new Adventurer Plates. Many players consider glamour as the true end-game for Final Fantasy XIV, with the new Adventurer Plates adding to this experience. Over the short duration that the community has had access to them, FFXIV players have created many Adventuring Plates.

Adventurer Plates are a form of customization released in the newest patch of FFXIV that allows players to create fantastic profile snapshots for their character. Players can customize these snapshots with various colors, fun and unlockable designs, and pictures of their own characters. Players can also indicate their playtimes and playstyles on these cards. This allows players to share their personality with the world, as these Adventuring Plates can be set to Public, allowing other players to see their creation.

Players will have access to this feature instantly upon logging into their character. Under the Character tab, players will find a new option called Adventurer Plate, in which they will have full reign to customize this new feature released in Patch 6.1 of FFXIV. This will be near impossible for returning players to miss, as Square Enix added an indicator highlighting that a new feature has been added to the Character tab. After clicking on this option, players will open the Plate editor, where they can preview and edit all aspects of their Adventurer Tab.

How to Change Portraits in Final Fantasy XIV’s Adventurer Plate

Final Fantasy XIV How To Edit Character Portrait

One of the coolest features of the Adventurer Plate is the character portrait situated on the right side of the plate by default. This portrait is a customizable screenshot of the player’s character, allowing players to express their personality. Players will be able to use a variety of default emotes to customize these portraits, but the ability to edit them is not within the Adventurer Plate. Instead, players wishing to show off their newly acquired cosmetics in Final Fantasy XIV will need to go to the separate Portrait option in the Character Tab. In this new editor, players can create a bunch of screenshots of their character, collecting up to 20 unique images of the players’ character.

Players can edit or create new portraits in this window and set the image for their Adventurer Plate or for use in PvP. To do this, players should select the portrait they wish to use to open a drop-down menu. The options ‘Apply to Adventurer Plate’ and ‘Use as Instant Portrait’ will apply the portrait to the Adventurer Plate and PvP respectively. Players should note the Instant Portrait will change the gear in the screenshot to fit the player’s current gear upon showing it off. Portraits are a new way to capture the player’s creativity in Patch 6.1 of Final Fantasy XIV.
