For a given period, each player’s skyward points are tallied and listed on the Lodestone. The skyward points earned during the ranking period are known as the seasonal score. Players finishing in high ranks will be eligible for rewards and achievements.

Ranking Period

The ranking period lasts from the release of Patch 5.41 until Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 10:00 p.m. (PST). Seasonal scores are tallied for each class, with rankings divided by World and class.

Learn more about Ishgardian Restoration rankings.
* Rankings are updated each day at approximately 1:00 a.m. (PST).
* Seasonal scores can only be accumulated on a player’s Home World.

Rewards

Top ranking players will be awarded a special achievement and title. These rewards can be obtained by using the following items distributed via the moogle delivery service:

  • 1st to 12th Place
    Season Three Writ of Canonization (※1) / Season Three Writ of Beatification (※2)
  • 13th to 100th Place
    Season Three Writ of Beatification (※2)

※1 This item grants the achievement “Phase IV Divine Ascension” and the title “Saint of the Firmament.”
※2 This item grants the achievement “Phase IV Minor Miracle” and the title “Beatus of the Firmament.”

The titles awarded to top players, “Saint of the Firmament” and “Beatus of the Firmament,” are the same as those awarded during previous rankings. Please note, however, that because they will be treated as separate titles, players who earn these titles will see more than one instance of them when viewing acquired titles in-game.

The skybuilders’ monument, commemorating the crafting class with the greatest contributions to the restoration initiative, has been added.

When ranking results are finalized, scores from all crafters will be tallied based on class. Please note that scores will be tallied separately for each World. The crafting class in each World with the highest combined score will have a monument built in their honor, modeled after the crafting tool used by said class.
* A different monument will be placed in the Firmament for newly added Worlds in the future.
