It was FF14’s housing updates, not Dawntrail’s reveal, that I cheered loudest for at Fan Fest

FF14 Fanfest

Ages before Final Fantasy 14 implemented its infamous housing lottery system I won my first plot of land in a little corner of the Mist neighborhood. Just as patch 3.3 went live, I made a mad dash for a medium-sized home and scooped it up without a second thought. The location was among my least favorite—I absolutely hated the view—but I knew an ounce of hesitation would cost me my one chance at home ownership. I forked over millions of gil sight unseen as other ravenous players claimed every piece of digital real estate on my server within minutes.

That was six years ago, back in the days of Heavensward—when we only had 12 wards instead of 30 and land was sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. The path to FF14 home ownership is often a miserable experience, but if you’re lucky, the struggle delivers a brilliant outlet for player creativity. So when Dawntrail debuted at Fan Fest 2023, it’s no surprise some of us cheered just as loudly for Final Fantasy 14’s plans to increase the number of things you can store in a home as we did for a brand-new expansion reveal.

And when I say ‘cheered,’ it’s probably more accurate to say a row of folks seated beside me at this year’s Fan Fest lost their damn minds over a single line at the bottom of a PowerPoint.
