Whether you've been playing 3 days or 300 days, Final Fantasy XIV is a treasure trove of features. Many of us are impatiently waiting for 3.1 but have you overlooked anything? Here is a list of things you may or may not know about!

While this can be annoying, it can also be a blessing. You can create custom furniture by overlaying items. For example, why not try overlapping a striking dummy with a topiary Moogle. Yes, sickening, I know.
