They confiremd before release that housing will be back but didn't give us a date or timeline when they will be implemented. There are several sections in all three cities that have 'unable to be entered' like places that look like zone lines to housing districts. The area near the miners guild in Ul'Dah, Northern Isles in Limsa, the area to the far northeast in Gridania (Think its Lily's something) etc. Curiously, these places are all the direct opposite side of the city from the Market Wards lol.
**** there are a lot of map spaces that goto no where at the moment in all three cities. (Even some map spaces that go unused because of a locked gate, that dead end near Tham guild... im looking at you) The Airships docks are the most obvious ones. The stair flight that heads to the third floor in Ul'Dah is probably one, the airship docks in Gridania are below the adventurers guild, and the airship docks in Limsa are in the higher levels of the main island structure but we can't get to it yet. There are at least 3-4 more areas in each city that are blocked off or gated off that look to hold things for future release.
early indications/hints from square says they'll be accessible via any crystal when they are implemented....that was months ago when they said that tho.
No they were referencing something else when they said that. It was a question related to a 'hub' for adventures and that Mog Houses facilitated ideal meeting points because of job changes in FFXI. Now they say the main hub would be around the crystals in each city due to the nature of the teleportation system.
