This page lists all player-created hotbar (HB) and cross-hotbar (XHB) layout guides and keybindings for the Dancer Class/Job in Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail.

New LayoutNew Layout
From the Near Eastern nation of Thavnair comes a troupe of bewitchingly graceful performers. Though certainly elegant and beautiful, their movements also speak of martial discipline ─ of a pulsing, persistent energy whose rhythm can inspire souls and soothe troubled hearts. Inured to the hardships of the road, these dancers have learned to land throwing weapons with the same exacting precision as their footfalls, removing any who would obstruct the endless beat of the dance.

    I show Cross Hotbar 3 (Left) with both of the expanded trigger controls, so you can easily add in another 8 actions if you prefer, I use XHB 8 as a shared bar between all classes for traversal and general actions outside of combat. Role actions are consistent among my layouts, and so are general actions. The macro icon is a placeholder for a Tincture/Gemdraught.

    I created my chotbars to be comfortable, practical, and aesthetic. Nearly all same/similar skills are in the same position across all jobs/roles while allowing for as little finger gymnastics as possible.

    My XHB is split between chotbars 2(left) and 7(right)

    2 is unique to each job while 7 is shared. Emote icons are (duh) my favorite emotesa and the magnifying glass is my job changer.

    Current WIP for updated hotbars in 7.0, focusing on minimising swapping hotbars in combat and keeping visual clarity on relevant buff cooldowns and maximising consistency across all jobs. Bar 1 is for single target, and Bar 2 for AoE.

    The Glamour Plate button is being used in place of the newly added skill as needed, and the dye represents potion. Sprint and LB are macroed to L3/R3 respectively.

    RT single target, buffs

    RT LT aoe, healing

    LT burst, idk i don't usually play dps

    LT RT movement, interrupt, kb, utility

    LT LT shared dps actions

    **** arm's length & interrupt might move depending on tank hbs

    Gain Last Dance. (Teleport as Placeholder. Not actually too sure if this is a new button.)

    Maybe play with where Saber Dance, Last Dance, Starfall Dance, and Fan Dance IV are. Might feel bad to hit those buttons in those locations.

    Waiting for the new action images to get added in to fully get this good

    Make sure to change Double tap L2 to "Cross Hotbar 4 - Left" and Double tap R2 to "Cross Hotbar 4 - Right"

    The new DNC Layout I'm testing 05/22/24

  • Dancer IconDNC

    P.V.E. IconPVE

    Trying to standardize my XHBs across jobs, starting with DNC.

    HB 1:

    • RT shapes: single-target GCDs

    • RT D-pad: single-target oGCDs

    • LT shapes: steps (rotation intro), buffs

    • LT D-pad:, mitigations, gap closer

    HB 2:

    • RT shapes: aoe GCDs

    • RT D-pad: aoe oGCDs

    • LT shapes: role actions, stance

    • LT D-pad: LB, heals

  • Dancer IconDNC

    P.V.E. IconPVE

    Current XHB layout; single-target on right, aoe on left, stances & less commonly used skills on HB 2.

    did you know: peloton and sprint do not stack together, peloton's 20% speed buff gets overwritten by sprint's 30%

    this is also true for every othe speed buff that is lower than another, for example ninja's passive speed boost

    How I set up my crossbars as a dancer on steamdeck (Currently level ~65)

    I try to play every classes/jobs, thus I tend to reuse same slots for same "functionality" across jobs.

    Used the following link to add keybinds to the back triggers : https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/vdnmji/advanced_controller_tips_for_steam_deck/

    ||| L4 -> Target nearest enemy
    ||| R4 -> Cycle through enemies (nearest -> furthest)
    ||| L5 -> Sprint
    ||| R5 -> Inventory

    ||| L2 + L5 -> Mount
    ||| L2 + R5 -> Armour chest
    ||| R2 + R5 -> Chobo inventory

    General XHB combat layout I use in game. Feel free to use it if curious on how the flow might gauge for you.

    DYE represents placing the job's TINT in said slot.

    I'm a small streamer that loves FFXIV and many other things. The XHBs I publish are solely how I personally like to organize my Hotbars when on the controller! Feel free to use them if you too like them! Some are thrown together and some are planned out.

    A simple crossbar for DNC. Only the essentials, nothing terribly flashy. (My Closed Position is actually a cute little macro to let my fellow DPS know they're my dance partner.)
