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 RikuRDM > Options > High Performance Mode. You also need to have less than 80 ping if you want high parses.

RikuRDM is an extremely optimized PvE Red Mage 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.

RikuRDM 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. RikuRDM 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 RikuRDM:

  • Fully optimized rotation
  • Advanced Manafication Optimization will ensure you get the max amount of potency from your manafication, wasting as little mana as possible, often netting an additional melee phase.
  • Safe Jump Detection that will detect when jumps will send you flying off the arena and will prevent jumps
  • Optimal Swiftcast proc fishing
  • Automatic pooling of mana for pot burst and will fit 2 melee phases inside pot.
  • Argus integration that will automatically draw a perfect range circle around your target for when you are entering melee phase, and a knockback indicator for displacement
  • And many more optimizations that make RikuRDM the best and highest DPS RDM 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!

Color Outside/Inside - If you have Argus, RikuRDM 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 - Controls manafication and embolden 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.

DC Res - Toggles dualcast ressing.

Fast Melee - Normally, the ACR will optimize your mana and procs before going into your melee phase. However, this will delay your melee phase and may cause issues in regards to phase transition timings. Turning on this toggle will bypass the proc and mana checks and attempt to go into your melee phase as soon as possible.

No Holds - Normally, the acr will hold Manaification if your mana is too high so you don't waste mana and get an extra melee phase, gaining a significant amount of DPS in the process. Turning on this toggle will bypass that and use Manafication on cooldown regardless of what your mana is.

M Swift - Controls swift usage for movement uptime.

O Swift - Controls swift usage for fishing for procs

Jump In - Toggles Corps-a-corps

Jump Out - Toggles displacement

Melee - Toggles melee phase on/off for holding gauge purposes

Dump AOE - Normally, the ACR will pool resources for maximizing damage during AOE. This includes things like building up gauge 50|50 gauge for Manafication, 100|100 for Embolden, etc. However, this assumes that your AOE pack will live long enough for it to matter. If the mobs will not be alive for too long, then turning on this toggle will allow the ACR to dump any mana with Moulinet as soon as it's up.

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 will pool mana for it, ensuring 2 melee phases inside the pot window. Useful for fights where you can only get 2 pots in.

Jump Off Hold - When held, this will prevent jumps from triggering, but will still allow channels through. TensorDrift's hold keys will prevent jumps, but will also prevent channels. However, there are many situations on Red Mage where you are able to cast but don't want to use any jumps. Note: You can bind this key to just a modifier in the setings (like shift or alt), simply press your modifier key then hit escape when setting your keybind!

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 RikuRDM in the ACR dropdown.

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