I'm a member of the ZAM free company on Ultros, but I honestly have no idea what that entails benefit-wise other than getting to hang with all the awesome members here! I've tried looking up general info on free companies in ARR, but I can't find a decent site that really explains them so I'll try posting my questions here.

1) What are the "ranks" and what do they do? Currently we are rank 3 but that's about the extent of my knowledge. Do we get items that we can buy depending on our rank? And if so where do I do this? And how do I buy said items? Is there some kind of special currency?

2) How do we raise this rank? I've heard people say about duties but I don't know where to get these.

3) What is this FC house that I keep hearing about? I know it's not implemented yet but what benefits will this entail?

Any other info for a newbie? Or even a website where I can read up on all this?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can give a guy a hand!

From my understanding it is basically a Guild. Similar to what a Linkshell is in FFXI.
As people join the FC and work together, the FC (Guild) grows and levels up. As to any plus to being part of one, I have no idea.
There are also LS in XIV, but they seem more like chat channels.
Because I don't know, it seems you are part of one FC, but can be part of many LSs.

You get a community chest (right now access comes to officers for everything other than gil) and you get the tag on your name, which ID's you as part of the group. Rank 4 we will unlock a feature to embed the Free Company's logo on our armor. That's pretty cool too, and we are literally a step from rank 4 as we speak.

Aside from that, we accrue company credits, which can be exchanged for bonuses such as increased experience gain for all members for 24 hours, increased HQ for gathering, increased seals for GC, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

All awesome! So there isn't any gear, that's just from GC's right?

How can we help accrue these company credits? And will you announce when you will pop the xp bonuses and such?

Is there an NPC that hands out free company duties to help raise the rank, or does it just raise when we complete dungeons/guildhests/leves?

I don't know really but I have been told any actions you do like killing monster, completing quests/fate/guildhest/guildleve/instance, gathering, crafting etc. even if they yield no EXP still give FC EXP.

You need rank 5 to purchase 24 hour FC action (assuming consumed upon use), each cost around 3,500 FC EXP.

There is no FC gears. At rank 4 you get the option to stamp FC logo/crest/coat of arm on your gears (body, head and shield) for 100 gil per piece. You can also pay 100 gil per piece to get the logo removed from the gears. Not sure if the logo will stay if the gear change hands to other players not in the FC, if not then I'm going to spam market place with Moogle Seal of Approval gears.
