Final Fantasy XIV cross data center travel

It ‘s coming as part of patch 6.18

Finally, Final Fantasy XIV data center travel is coming in patch 6.18: The developers supported it themselves in the recent producer live letterChat Lounge

The gist is that you’ll be able to “guest” as “travelers” in other servers across the same data center. You ‘ll queue up this process from the character select screen, then zoom into another server with the purpose of completing the duties.

Here are the main tenets of the Final Fantasy XIV data center travel system:

  • You can travel within the same data center: from Japan to Japan, North America to North America, Europe to Europe, and Oceanian to Oceanian (if you need a reminder how all the servers are broken down, you can find the full list here)
  • To queue up the process, you ‘ll do it at the character select screen, which will put you in the other server as a traveler (with the tag above your head) – after that you will go back to the title. screen for a countdown; It can’t be canceled, and you need to repeat the process to go back to your “home” server (you can see what the menu looks like for this part above).
  • The main purpose is to “challenge duties from players in those data centers” (so expand your static and raid groups).
  • Limitations include restrictions for free company chat, cross-world linkshell chat, PVP teams, and the same restrictions as the world visit system

All of this is coming in patch 6.18, which will be released sometime after the “mid-April” patch 6.1. It’s basically an extra mini-patch on top of the content drops and advancements that 6.1 is going to make. You can find the discussion on the data center travel at 2:13:32 in the broadcastGeneral Chat Chat Lounge

And in light of this, Square Enix has a limit for simultaneous logins for the Japan data center, as well as a number of data centers in the region that are three to four (the new one is Meteor), with a regrouping process coinciding with all that. The team notes that there will be a “total increase of over 50,000 login limits” across the entire Japanese data center. This particular implementation is dated for July 2022.
