What are the letters near the monsters name on FFXIV such in this picture? Do they have an specific keybind or they`re merely aesthetic for tagging?

enter image description here


As far as I can tell, they're for tagging to make it easier to clarify which enemy you're targeting (this is primarily useful in groups against raid content, obviously). The letter keeps looping a-z while the group structure you're in remains unchanged; joining a group or adding a new member to the group resets the count.

(Not 100% sure about the last one; will test it out when I get home, assuming the server lets me in...)

    I can confirm, these are simply assigned to help your group coordinate. Also, the little gems to the left are aggrometres: red means the monster is targeting you, flashing yellow means it's losing interest, everything else means you better use those taunts. Aug 29 '13 at 10:15
  • Oh, neat. Didn't know that yet.
