Synthesis History Feature

 Hate needing to constantly look through lists of items to find the right recipe for synths? Wish you could just press one command and have the ingredients gathered together in proper amounts and the synthesis performed? You're in luck, for in the July version of Final Fantasy XI, a new Synthesis History feature will be added, letting players quickly repeat previously performed synths without needing to sift through their inventory to individually select ingredients.

 In addition, players that find themselves crafting particular items often can "favorite" up to ten synths to remain in the history lists for as long as they remain favorited.
