So i'm hopeing that with the more inventory slots were going to get it comes with a quest to unlock it. It also seems with the new COMPANIES being introduced we'll get multiplayer quests. Not sure what they mean by this. Hopefully the Hamlet defence battles will be a raid type like what they had in FFXI in the Wings of Goddes expansion.

Establishment of In-Game Communities
The forthcoming November and December version updates will introduce what are known as "companies," a special type of linkshell with more group-oriented progression and goals.
Once estbalished, companies will be able to work towards acquiring their own communal assets, such as buildings that can serve as headquarters, or ships that can be used to access multiplayer content. The system will provide concrete benefits to players who align themselves with a company, as well as motivate already established companies to seek out new recruits. In essence, the focus will be on providing new, innovative content for all players to enjoy. The FINAL FANTASY XIV Lodestone will also offer a number of online services covering both companies and linkshells.
All of the additions and changes mentioned above are currently in the final stages of development, and we are optimistic that they will be implemented in the version updates of November, December, and early 2011. Beyond those listed here, there are still numerous other features being planned. More information on these will be released in the future as details become available.
