People who decided to “live” on the new Final Fantasy XIV North American Data Center worlds of Halicarnassus, Maduin, Marilith, and Seraph will soon get to take part in the housing lottery, as the official FFXIV site confirmed the real estate market is about to open. On November 4, 2022, folks will be able to take part in the lottery and get their own residences. However, before the real estate market opens up, people will be able to visit and look around the residential areas there on November 1, 2022.
The official announcement also confirmed the division of housing in the FFXIV worlds of Halicarnassus, Maduin, Marilith, and Seraph. As usual, Wards 13 through 24 will all be designated as Private Plots for anyone. The other homes in Wards 1-12 will be available for Free Company representatives to buy.
As a reminder, a FFXIV housing lottery takes place over nine days. The first five days are designated as an “entry period,” during which people can apply to buy houses that are available. For four days after that, you can check in to see if you won the opportunity to buy that home during the “results period.” If you did, you then need to pay the price in order to complete the transaction and move into it. If you don’t pay for your purchase after being picked within those four days, you miss your chance to get it.
If the first FFXIV Halicarnassus, Maduin, Marilith, and Seraph housing lottery follows the typical schedule, players can expect the entry period to last from November 4-9, 2022. Then, the results period will last from November 10-14, 2022.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC.
