FFXIV Server Ping.Follow

How do I find what my ping to the FFXIV game servers will be? All the servers are supposedly in the same place, so it shouldn't matter which one, right? But I'd like to be able to see what my ping is.

I don't know if the ping time is measured as the server host to the ffxiv servers or from the client (you) to the ffxiv servers. The website is hosted in Europe, FYI.

I've seen a few "FFXIV Server Status" pages and the pings differ quite a bit. My guess is that it is the Zam server pinging the FFXIV and not me. I'm just curious as to what my ping will be because I'm half way across the world. I know I had a bit of an issue when I played FFXI so...

Checked the resource monitor, 202.67.48.252 is the IP address I get when logged into Besaid. Try pinging that, I don't think the differences in servers will make any noticeable difference in latency, since they're probably all physically adjacent to each other.

EDIT: I ran the ping myself and averaged 215 ms, going from Wisconsin to Tokyo, Japan. Whatever lag is in the game seems to be software related latency, because I would not expect to call the latency in-game 1/5th of a second. That's just a tad over the high end of acceptable latency for a first person shooter.
