Servers or Worlds are individual instances of Final Fantasy XIV. Servers are located in 3 places in the world: North America, Europe and Japan. Each region is further divided into Data centers. Each data center has multiple servers.

There are no regional limitations on servers. Anyone can create characters on any of the 3 regions. During Character Creation, players can select the world server of their choice to begin the game on. An indicator by each world in the world list indicates population density, represented by chocobo icons, as low, average, or high. See experience for an explanation of how to create a character on a Preferred server.

Characters cannot be created on Congested servers, or on servers where very many players are currently logged on.

To transfer a character from one server to another, player needs to use the World Transfer Service, which costs real world money. This fee is waived if transferring from a Congested server to a Preferred one, or from any server to a New server.

Note that Legacy servers are servers that existed before A Realm Reborn (2.0). Each server has an ID number that is based on the approximate order in which the servers were activated. If multiple servers were activated at the same time, they are listed in alphabetical order.

Data Center Selection

Data center selection1.png

When logging in for the first time, you will be prompted to select a regional data center. Your choice of data center will determine the Worlds you may choose from after creating your character. Please note that characters are bound to the World on which they are created.

  • Your data center can be changed at any time via the Data Center Selection window at the title screen.

1. Select a data center.

If you have previously logged in with a character, the data center of the last character played will be denoted with a ★ symbol.

2. Review the list of data centers and their associated Worlds.

Worlds listed under the data center of the last character played will be highlighted.
