Final Fantasy XIV Patch 4.1 Shirogane Housing & Relocation Details
Final Fantasy XIV Patch 4.1 is set to release in early October, and Square Enix is starting to reveal more details about what’ll change in their popular MMO. Today’s update is all about Shirogane housing (it’s divided into 12 wards and has a far-Eastern aesthetic), and the new relocation feature. The latter will allow players to move their “private or free company estate to another district.”
The full blog post goes into a wild degree of detail, but here are the basics on how relocation will work in FFXIV patch 4.1:
Relocation allows players to move their estate hall and accompanying furnishings to a new plot. The destination can be situated in any residential area and be of any size.
Relocating to a New Plot
To begin the process, inspect the placard located at the entrance of the destination plot and select Purchase Land. A prompt for relocation will appear, allowing you to move your estate immediately after the purchase is complete. You are not required to relinquish ownership of your old plot prior to relocation. In the case of company estates and estate sharing, all players with access to the estate will receive a notification when the process is complete.
* Only free company members who have been granted authority to purchase and relinquish land can relocate company estates.
* Players who are inside an estate at the time of relocation will be automatically moved outside.
Cost of Relocation
When purchasing a plot for relocation, 30% of the minimum value of your old plot will be applied towards the price of the new one.
(Cost of Relocation) = (Destination Plot Price) – (30% of Old Plot Price)
* In the event reimbursement for the old plot exceeds the price of the destination plot, the cost of relocation will be waived. Please note, however, you will not receive gil for the amount that exceeds the cost of the destination plot.
