There’s a new update on which worlds are considered congested in FFXIV. When Square Enix opened up the new Oceanic data center, it also mentioned worlds that are now too full. In total, 24 worlds spread across the European, Japanese, and North American data centers are now congested.
Europe is the region with the fewest FFXIV worlds newly dubbed congested. On Chaos, Cerberus, Moogle, and Ragnarok are full. On Light, Odin, Phoenix, and Shiva are affected. Eight are out in Japan. Asura (Mana), Bahamut (Gaia), Chocobo (Mana), Gungnir (Elemental), Titan (Mana), Tonberry (Elemental), and Typhon (Elemental) are all full. North America’s got 11 new congested worlds now. Aether is most affected. Adamantoise, Cactaur, Faerie, Gilgamesh, Jenova, Midgardsormr, Sargatanas, and Siren are all there and congested. Primal’s Behemoth and Leviathan and Crystal’s Balmung are too.
As a reminder, there are limitations in effect on congested FFXIV worlds. People can’t create a new character on one with that designation. They also can’t start a Home World Transfer to one. However, if someone has a character on a congested world, they can take advantage of a free transfer to one that isn’t. The world status site offers regular updates on which ones are or aren’t full.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC.
