Final Fantasy XIV confirms new housing coming in patch 5.35 along with how new Skybuilder titles will work

Yes, you saw that right, and if you play Final Fantasy XIV, you’re probably excited. New housing day arrives when patch 5.35 does, and it brings with it three new wards for each of the housing districts. This might sound like it’s not a whole lot, but that’s three new wards with three subdivisions each across four districts, which makes a grand total of 720 new housing plots available on every server. Equally notable is the fact that these wards will be available to both free company or private owners right from the start. This doesn’t change plans to add even more in the future, but it’s a stopgap while new server installations are going more slowly.

This news comes via a dispatch from producer and director Naoki Yoshida, who also explains that the achievements being rewarded for placing highly in a given season of Ishgardian restoration will be subdivided by season… but the title for being in the top contributors will remain the same. As he explains, the goal of the titles is to show off the achievement at all, while the separate achievements let you compared your contributions without forcing players to feel as if they have to be in the top every single time. Furthermore, titles have a roleplaying component that would be made more complex with a new title. So if all you wanted was the title and you have it, you can relax even when patch 5.31 rolls around.

I just wish houses could be like houses in ESO permanent and that I don´t need to pay every month when im not playing just to keep the damn house.

Can people still have multiple houses?

I believe it’s still on a per character basis – not sure, I can barely afford an apartment ;P

I’m recalling the uproar about some couple having like a ward to themselves: https://kotaku.com/two-final-fantasy-xiv-players-buy-dozens-of-homes-spar-1796692020

Seems like if that is still a thing they should shut that down.

That was changed last year or so I think? Still ways around it of course, ponderous as it might, but its one per character now.

Glad to know that was changed.

If I get enough of a head’s up, I’ll take the day off work and try to get a plot. A shot at clicking and getting a house is better than camping for hours only to have someone who already has a house move into the spot directly.

That’s 240 plots. each ward (22-24) will have 60 plots, 30 in main, 30 in subdivision x 4 housing zones

While it’s definitely a start (and a good one) It’s still nowhere even close to meeting demand.
Remember Archage housing rushes? Yeah that ;P (without the cheating cheaters of course!)
