Limsa Lominsa, the island marked with a red flag, looks something like this.

The city-state is home to world class chefs in Bismarck and the Knights of the Barracuda who train at the Coral Tower. Staples like a blacksmith’s, armorers’, and marauder’s guilds are in town. Want to partake in Limsa Lominsa’s natural past time? Grab a fishing rod to harvest the sea’s bounty.

 

While a firm release date for Final Fantasy XIV has not been announced, Square Enix still states Final Fantasy XIV will be released simultaneously around the world later this year.
