Hi,
I played FFXI for a while and have now just started FFXIV and was wondering if there is a house system like the house you got on XI. If there is how/when do you get one?

Check half way down the front page on this board and you'll see a thread called "Player Private Residences (2/14/12)." That should answer your questions as far as we know right now.

Spoiler alert: there's no significant player housing, and there won't be until at least a year from now.

Even given generous delays, 2.0 is hardly what I would call a year out (about 9 months now, give or take). There is a chance that housing will not be included at launch, but given that they are already laying the groundwork in 1.21, I think it isn't too much of a stretch to assume that it will indeed be included. Hyperbole has it's place, but try not to scare off too many people with it for no better reason than to vent.

A little more on topic, sometime in the next few weeks (really hopefully sometime this week, but who knows at this point), we should be getting patch 1.21, which will include - among other things - inn style rented housing similar to Jeuno and Whitegate. Full-on housing content (like your home nation but supposedly more advanced) will be coming with 2.0, which is scheduled for sometime around November.

Well, the beta, or "reboot[ing] phase," phase of 2.0 is, according to SE's timeline, scheduled to take place onward into January of 2013. That's a ten or eleven months from today. This same chart also shows that patch 1.21 will go live between December and early February (and, with February now ending, we see how punctual that turned out to be - and let's see whether 1.22 arrives no later than April).

At the time of that chart's creation (October 14th, 2011), the very first pieces of content were already greatly delayed. Thus, I don't know how you can believe that SE, who is already running over a month behind schedule this early in their very own timeline, will somehow run through and finish their predetermined 2.0 beta phase months ahead of schedule, but that's what you must think, given that you say it's due "about 9 months from now... around November."

In short, I wasn't actually providing an hyperbole. Smiley: lol

Delays in version 1 patches ought to have no real impact whatsoever on the progress of 2.0. They are being developed by separate teams. Version 1 is getting tossed; 2.0 will completely replace it.

That said, I think it's sufficient to say 2.0 is coming out "next year." What time of that year remains debatable.

I hope it gets pushed back to 2013's end. :o. I just really want them to take their time and make ffxiv good. I know it has the potential. I don't like it when things are rushed!
