I couldn't think of how to best word this.

Will the houses we are able to buy, be purchasable multiply time by different players (Like the old mog houses in FFXI, when you just zone into your own house) or is it a single house only buy able for 1 player?

Well, that is something i was thinking as well. I believe that multiple players can buy the "same" house because otherwise the houses would have been bought from the lets first 100 people and the rest of the population would have been left with a cheap bed in the inn. :P

They're saying it will take multiple people to buy a house, as they will initially be considered "Headquarters" for Free Companies.

Q: Will houses be personal or shared?
A: First it will be joint housing. A house of this size is going to require everyone to dish out some dough. It’s pretty expensive.

You can make furniture available to people of the same free company, or, if you want, you can set permission levels so all of your friends can use the furniture and what not. There are quite a few settings.

The reason why we’ve decided to establish them as free company bases first is because inside of the houses there is a new kind of system that involves parks and towers.

Parks would give a bonus to everyone in the free company, like an extra 25% to experience points earned. It could make crafting faster to level, or maybe give success bonuses for HQ crafting. It's a system that allows members to add things that will give boons to the entire free company. You’ll be able to increase the size of your house, and also your company can rank-up through free company points, allowing you to place more parks and towers around.


I’d first like to create a strong community within FFXIV. When new members join, you’ll be able to get more points, and we’d like to establish a system that encourages people to support new players coming into the game. Once the community has had time to come together we will then allow players to have their own private housing and branch out from there

Even for an MMO, I believe it’s nice to have a place to call home.

I think the question is more of:

Are the house instanced (to enable unlimited number of house) or are they persistent open-world (limited number of house).

Well, that's what i said, that i don't believe they are limited. What i wanted to know and i don't know if it was answered by yoshi is if they will let other players "visit" another player's house. Not that it matters a lot but it's a small detail that i would like to have.

Those questions were actually covered in the last live letter. Houses are part of instanced housing areas which contain manymany multiple, but finite housing "slots". Once such an instance fills up, following houses will be placed in the next (otherwise identical) instance. As demonstrated by Yoshi during the session, you are free to move between those houses. It is not clear whether this includes entering all houses. My personal prediction is that for the latter, you will need the permission of the respective owners.
