FFXIV Players Turn 6.1 Adventurer Plates Into NSFW Cards

Final Fantasy XIV players are customizing Update 6.1 Adventurer Plates in NSFW fashion and sharing these explicit cards on the internet.

The players of Final Fantasy XIV: A Kingdom Reborn take one of the latest patch 6.1 features, Adventure Plates, and make it NSFW. Final Fantasy XIV was first released in 2013, but in December 2021, it released the Endwalker expansion pack that concluded the ongoing story. Patch 6.1 is the first big update since then, and it introduces the beginnings of a new story after the events of Endwalker.

Final Fantasy XIV latest update, called Patch 6.1 – new adventure, brought Adventure Plates, along with a new story and PvP content called Crystalline Conflict. Adventure Plates are a fully customizable way for players to show more personality to their character, otherwise known as a Warrior of Light. Players can control everything from the portrait background, camera angle, lighting, border, frame and of course their character’s pose and expression. Players can save up to 20 of these images, with more expected to arrive in future updates. These plaques also display information such as the player’s name, grand company, and grand company rank. While a player can control what is displayed and what is kept private, if a player participates in Final Fantasy XIV‘s PvP, their team’s Adventure Map portraits will be displayed on-screen for everyone to see when the match begins.

As is the fate of many fully customizable things, some players use their Adventure Plates to show off their more NSFW side, by posing their characters in suggestive ways. Adventure Plates have already become a huge hit, with players making portraits ranging from cute and pretty to funny and memorable, but many players taking part in PvP instead see loads of inappropriate cards like the ones shared by GentlemanKari on Twitter.

Twitter and Reddit have already been inundated with gamers sharing their likenesses, modest or otherwise. A quick glance at either site is enough to see that some players are using portraits to turn their character into Final Fantasy memes, while still others do NSFW images. Luckily, players can also change the settings for who can see them, with more filtering options likely in the future. At the time of writing, adventure plates can be set to public, friends only, or private.


While most portraits are made with the intention of innocently having fun, it should be important for players to consider the comfort and consent of their PvP team members. It’s also important to remember that the Adventure Plates feature is still in beta and will likely see changes with fixes in future updates. Whether these updates will help or hinder Final Fantasy XIV actors in making more NSFW portraits in the future remains to be seen.
