FFXIV Preferred and Congested Worlds Change

Square Enix issued an update on the status of both preferred and congested worlds for FFXIV. While the Server Status site offers on-the-fly updates, this is the developer’s official status update for every region.

There are now 10 preferred worlds for FFXIV. They are split between the Japanese and European Data centers. For those in Japan, Atomos, Durandal, Garuda, Ridill, Yojimbo, and Zeromus are recommended. In Europe, suggested ones are Alpha, Omega, Raiden, and Spriggan.

Meanwhile, all of the congested FFXIV worlds are on the North American Data Centers. Square Enix added Adamantoise, Midgardsormr, and Siren to the list. 

The update also went over some worlds that are now considered “standard” ones, which means they aren’t recommended for moves or a part of the balancing incentive process, but also aren’t considered overly congested destinations at this time. 

These are the following worlds, with their Data Center mentioned after their names:

  • Aegis (Japan)
  • Belias (Japan)
  • Cactaur (North America)
  • Carbuncle (Japan)
  • Faerie (North America)
  • Jenova (North America)
  • Kujata (Japan)
  • Louisoix (Europe)
  • Phantom (Europe)
  • Sargatanas (North America)
  • Unicorn (Japan)

We could see the preferred and congested FFXIV worlds change again soon, as a new Data Center is about to open in Europe. That will be the Shadow Data Center. At the moment, only three worlds are confirmed for it. Those will be Innocence, Pixie, and Titania. People can actually see them in-game now, but we can’t move to them just yet.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and the Dawntrail expansion will arrive on July 2, 2024
