This addon requires TensorCore! Make sure you have that installed from the Minion store.

For optimal performance, you must set your pulse rate to 50ms or lower. As such, this addon, by default, will set your pulse rate to 50. You can disable this in RikuDNC > Options > High Performance Mode. You also need to have less than 80 ping if you want high parses.

RikuDNC is an extremely optimized PvE Dancer Shadowbringers combat routine that is highly customizable and intended for high-level play. With optimal gear, it is effortless to parse and rank in the top 30. My testers even reached rank 1 with this ACR and with minimal interaction.

RikuDNC also features an innovative hotbar that will allow you to control the ACR exactly how you want. You press the button; it uses the skill. Knockback coming in? Press the arm's length button, and you will be good to go. RikuDNC will weave the ability as soon as possible without interrupting your rotation, all at the click of a button. No more spamming the ability and fighting with the ACR. It just works.


Some more notable features exclusive to RikuDNC:

  • Fully optimized rotation
  • Improv tick detection; the ACR will detect when all 8 players are in range and will dynamically weave improv at the perfect time to get 2 ticks. This can easily get you an extra saber dance or two per phase.
  • Proc prediction engine will dynamically adjust the order of procs to minimize dropped procs, as well as detecting procs that will drop during a standard/tech step and automatically dumping them ahead of time.
  • Argus integration that will automatically draw a perfect range circle around your target for when you have to be in range, auto-adjusts for melee procs and dance steps etc.
  • And many more optimizations that make RikuDNC the best and highest DPS DNC Combat Routine on the market

User Interface

Let's start with the main options window Show Quick Toggles - Toggles the display of quick toggles.

Show Hotbar - Toggles display of the hotbar

High Performance Mode - Removes the 50ms pulse limit. If this option is on, the pulse rate can never go higher than 50 (it can still be set lower). If this option is off, then the pulse can go higher than 150. For optimal performance, leave this toggle on; otherwise, you will get small rotation issues due to things getting detected too late and missing cooldown windows!

Default Job Priority Sort - When you don't have a custom priority list set for your comp/group, this will determine what order people go in by default. You can right-click on the Auto Partner toggle to individually adjust priorities for that group!

Color Outside/Inside - If you have Argus, RikuDNC will automatically draw perfect range circle indicators on your target when you need to be in a certain range due to your rotation. You can adjust the colors and transparency here. Note: This circle is not accurate on housing dummies; however, it IS accurate on normal mobs!

You can right-click on individual options here to reset them to default. You can also right-click on the options tab itself to reset everything in the tab to default. The same can be done for QT Settings and Hotbar settings. With qt/hotbar settings, you can also restore default positions if you change resolutions and toggles go off-screen.

Here are all the toggles that you will be most frequently interacting with:

The icons are your Hotbar.

The green/red toggles are your normal Quick Toggles or QT for short.

The Opener toggle is XIVOpeners, another addon that I made, which is free and open source. It provides customizable openers with a little bit of Lua knowledge. All optimal openers are provided in XIVOpeners. You can find the download link here, and for more information click here.

Quick Toggles

Quick Toggles are buttons that you can quickly toggle options on/off with. All of these can be fully customized, including hotkeyed.

CD - Toggles Tech Step and Devilment usage.

AOE - Toggling this off will only do the Single Target rotation even if there are mobs in a cone in front of you. Useful for invuln add phases and focusing single adds down.

Auto Partner - Toggles automatic dance partner usage. If your current partner dies, it will auto swap a GCD before your next standard step to the next person in your priority list. Once your highest target no longer has weakness, it will auto swap back right before your next standard step. As such, it is recommended to keep this toggle on during raid. Note: You can right-click this toggle to adjust the priority for your current group, and it will save based on that party/job composition!

Burn - Normally, the ACR will pool feathers and espirit for tech/pot. Turning this toggle on will dump all of your feathers and espirit immediately. Useful for when the boss is dying.

No Hold - Normally, ACR will hold Tech Step for 1 GCD on the second one to align with devilment; this will prevent that and use it ASAP.

Hold AOE - This toggle is for 2 target padding. It will delay procs until just before they drop, hold saber dance for 2 target AOE until espirit is capped, and prevent fans from being dumped during tech until there are 2 targets in range.

Fan Dance - Turns off Fan Dance 1, 2, and 3.

STD Finish and Tech Finish - This will not toggle the step itself, but the finisher! This toggle is only useful for very edge case speed kill groups where you are forced to delay your finish by a GCD to better stack raid buffs.

Potion - Toggles automatic potion usage. It will not simply use the potion on cooldown; instead, it will decide the most optimal time to use the potion and ensure you hit all your big cooldowns. Useful for fights where you can only get 2 pots in.

Additionally, everything about the qt toggles can be customized as shown (the options are pretty self-explanatory)


Hotbar is pretty straightforward. You press the button; it'll light up to show that it's enabled and disables itself once the ACR casts the ability. It's a replacement for casting abilities manually and fighting the ACR. Press the button once, and the ACR will use that ability ASAP without messing up the rotation. As a high-level raider, I find these much more useful than the typical automated reactions system.

Hotbar will also show the cooldown of the ability, so you don't need to look at your actual ffxiv hotbar for the cooldown.

As with quick toggles, everything about the hotbars can be extensively customized.

Setting Up

First, make sure you have TensorCore installed from the Minion store.

Next, make sure you select RikuDNC in the ACR dropdown.

And you're done! Now go ahead and customize to your liking and enjoy.
