    The 8th Vana'diel Census (05/16/2008)

    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/topics.../3205/3205.jpg

    Today we bring you the 8th Vana'diel Census, which marks the sixth anniversary of FINAL FANTASY XI!

    In addition to the standard job level distribution and relic-level item charts, this year we've included some fascinating data relating to the new expansion disc Wings of the Goddess, as well as other never-before-seen statistics such as the number of players who've earned the right to wear Maat's Cap!

    Take this opportunity to see a slice of Vana'diel, as brought to you by our operation and development teams.

    The 8th Vana'diel Census can be found here.


    http://www.playonline.com/ff11us/guide/ ... index.html

    EDIT: FFS - 6,575 players with Maat's Cap....

    And this:
    Lastly, we'll take a look at relic-level equipment, which can be acquired through each Dynamis area. As with last year's census, we'll be focusing on the number of fourth stage and completed relic items that exist in all Worlds.
    Once again, the most popular relic is the Aegis, boasting a total of 366 shields created. Mandau, Kikoku, and Gjallarhorn continue to be very popular, with over 200 of each created. Of the relics, the scythe Apocalypse has drastically and suddenly risen in popularity. While the weapon's performance clearly makes it desirable, its weapon skill “Catastrophe” may be the reason for its incredible popularity. A total of 141 items have been created.

    This year's totals of 558 for fourth stage items and 1869 for completed relic items have far exceeded the previous year's totals of 353 and 778. The total number of final stage relics across all Worlds is rapidly approaching 2000 items.

    It already got nerfed, they just didnt want to say "Drk zergs increased its popularity" so they said catastrophe did which is true but is kinda misleading.

    Gjallarhorn- 205
    Kikoku- 219


    I hate people.

    Wyvern Helm is serious business, lol. I'm sure thats what everyone thought when they released Maat's Cap... >_> "Fuck they're outdoing Wyvern Helm +1"

    It should've read like this:
    While the weapon's performance clearly makes it desirable, its weapon skill “Catastrophe” may be the reason for its previous popularity. However, that issue was addressed in the last version update. We apologise for the inconvenience.

    I really think SE has forgotten they made this for so many jobs, off a mob that any group of 12 noobs can kill.

    Wyvern helm +1 is harder to get.

    Re: The 8th Vana'diel Census (05/16/2008)

    Oh, in case some people are @ work and can't check the stats at the moment, some interesting points of note (I thought) were;
    47.64% : Ancient Flames Beckon (Chains of Promathia Ch.1)
    72.66% : Pre-Emptiness Bleeds (Pre-Sea Access)
    27.34% : Emptiness Bleeds (Chains of Promathia Final Chapter/Completed)
    15.41% : Eternal Mercenary (Aht Urhgan Completed)
    4.69% : Captain Mercenary Rank (Boo Yah)
    28.41% : Bronze Ribbon of Service (Important, as it shows most people like WOTG thus far, or have at least ranked up once)

    Relic Weapons:
    29 Mjollnir
    16 Claustrom (4 on 4th Stage >o< )
    16 Guttler (17 on 4th Stage >o< )

    And...the last thing that interested me...

    Oh nice, they still have the censuses from previous years up.

    Job level distribution sure has changed a lot since 2005.

    Would be funny if for next census there'll be more lvl 5 players than lvl 1 ones now.

    And never though that there're so many veteran bonecrafters...

    All these pie charts and stats without actual numbers make my statistically trained brain weep:

    "Statistics can be used to prove anything, Kent. 14% of people know that."

    There are still more WAR/MNKs than WAR/NINs. WAR/SAM isn't on the chart.

    "The reason for the meat mithkabob's unusual rank jump is partially due to the new jobs added in the latest expansion, “Wings of the Goddess." Nope. WRONG.

    More Claustrums than Guttlers lol

    "There is no possible way of knowing what color your chocobo will be before it has hatched, but the data from our research indicates each color's likelihood." Like you didn't know the chances before...

    Holy shit there are a lot of Emblems of the Holy Knight
