Not quite, but we have a window. Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker patch 6.2 will launch on TuesdayAugust 23, 2022.

The patch is now live, but we’ll need to wait until then to take advantage of the changes and features.

All new content coming in FFXIV patch 6.2

New Main Scenario Quests – The main story quest will continue. A new solo quest called The Steps of Faith will be added.

Island Sanctuary update

After revealing the various changes in the FFXIV Live Letter from the Producer, Yoshi P showed us some new gameplay footage from the Island Sanctuary. The footage began at the top of a mountain which really got across how ambitious in scale the Buried Memory update will be.

The expansion will feature an optional tutorial that will help players get to grips with Island life. Players will also be able to sprint faster and for longer when in the Island Sanctuary to make the game as stress-free as possible.

Yoshi P revealed that the tutorial will take roughly two hours to complete, but he also said you’ll be able to hang out in the Island Sanctuary while you’re queuing to access other FFXIV content like Raids or servers.

Final Fantasy XIV Island SanctuarySquare-Enix
Island Sanctuary is a lot like Animal Crossing in FFXIV.

The Island will also feature NPCs with humorous names to help guide players navigate the various features such as the inventory changes. This will be different than the standard FFXIV inventory. You can also fast-travel back to these NPCs whenever you’re in need of guidance.

We got real Animal Crossing vibes from Island Sanctuary, which is exactly what the devs are going for. Crafting, building, and generally having a relaxing and creative experience is the goal here. Island Sanctuary is where Heros of Light go to unwind – and engage in DIY.

Island Sanctuary will be a single-player experience, but up to 15 other players can come and visit you, all at the same time if you’d like. Finally, Yoshi P told us they will be releasing a manual to cover how Island life works in more detail.

Here are some of the activities you can engage in when Island Sanctuary goes live:

  • Farming and growing crops
  • Capturing and rearing farm animals
  • Placing your minions around the Island – you can add up to 40
  • Building and exploring

Yoshi revealed that the FFXIV devs will aim to add fresh Island Sanctuary content every two patches, so expect it to be supported for a long time to come.

The island sanctuary allows you to create your own personal paradise amidst the natural beauty of the Cieldalaes.

Here you can collect resources and materials, build accommodations, grow crops, and more. The goods produced on your island can also be exchanged for various rewards.

Cultivate the land, or enjoy the slow life as your minions roam free─the choice is entirely up to you.

Requirements:

Seeking Sanctuary Level 1 Old Sharlayan (X:11.9 Y:11.0) Clueless Crier Players must first complete the main scenario quest “Endwalker.” Traveling to Your Island Sanctuary Players can travel to their island sanctuary at any time by speaking with Baldin in Lower La Noscea (X:24.9 Y:34.8).

Classes and Jobs

While it is possible to craft and gather on your island sanctuary, you are not required to unlock Disciples of the Hand or Land to do so. You are free to enjoy these activities using any class or job.

Your Vision

Realizing your vision will help you make your sanctuary the best it can be. Visions will appear as objectives in your duty list. As you realize visions, additional goals and development features will become available.

Islekeep’s Index

The Islekeep’s index is an island-specific HUD element that allows you to confirm important information, switch gameplay modes, and manage your island’s various features.

Modes

Your selected mode influences how you interact with features and creatures on your island.

Main Menu

The main menu consists of buttons by which you can confirm important information and manage various aspects of your island.

Basic Information

Confirm your sanctuary rank and available currencies.

Sanctuary Rank

Your sanctuary rank indicates your experience with subsisting in an island environment and improving your personal sanctuary. Earn island experience by engaging in various activities on your island. The higher your rank, the more features and options will become available to you.

Currency

As the development of your island sanctuary progresses, you will earn two types of currency─Seafarer’s Cowries and Islander’s Cowries. These are Cieldalaes-specific currencies to be used at shops that become available on your island.

Hideaway

The hideaway is your base of operations on your island. Here you may build facilities, care for animals, grow crops, and more. You may expand your hideaway as you make progress in perfecting your island sanctuary.

Activities on Your Island Sanctuary

Gathering

Players can collect resources and materials on their island, which are then recorded in the Islekeep’s index. You can also confirm resource locations and necessary tools.

Crafting

Accessing the Sanctuary Crafting Log, you can create items using the materials you’ve acquired in your time spent on your island.

Construction

A variety of structures can be built on your island. Players must first access the logboard in front of a vacant plot, wherein they can confirm what materials are required and how long construction will last.

Crops

It is possible to plant and water seeds to grow a variety of produce.

Pasture

You can capture animals on your island and send them to live on the pasture. By taking good care of these animals, you can collect materials from them, which can be used in a variety of ways.

Releasing Minions

One of each minion, up to 40, can be released to roam free in the various areas of your island. As they while away the hours wandering about the island, you may find they behave differently when left to their own devices.

Facilities

  • The Cozy Cabin: The cozy cabin is the primary facility of your hideaway. Here you may access the orchestrion to play your favorite tunes, exchange various items with merchants stationed there, and more.
  • Workshop: The workshop provides a place for mammets in your employ to create handicrafts out of the materials obtained on your island.

After conveying a schedule of production to the tactful taskmaster, handicrafts will be automatically created by the mammets on staff in the workshop.

  • The Granary: After constructing a granary, you may send a team of exploratory mammets on foraging expeditions to gather materials.

After choosing your desired expedition area and the number of days you wish your mammets to forage, they will venture out to gather materials, returning once per day until the foraging expedition is over.

As you continue to engage in the above activities on your island sanctuary, it will be possible to renovate your facilities to higher levels.

Further explanations of island sanctuary features can be found as you continue to realize your vision or by viewing the Islekeep’s index.

Leaving Your Island Sanctuary

You can leave your island sanctuary at any time by boat (X:9.2 Y:28.3) or via use of Return and Teleport.

  • Island sanctuary activities such as crafting and gathering cannot be carried out when visiting another island.
  • As of Patch 6.2, players will not be able to hear orchestrion music when visiting another island. This will be made possible in a future update.

Visiting Other Islands

Speak with Baldin in lower La Noscea to visit other island sanctuaries.

  • After completing the main scenario quest “The Ultimate Weapon,” it is possible to speak with Baldin and visit other island sanctuaries even if you do not possess your own.

Permitted Islands

You may visit the island sanctuaries of friends, free company members, and party members. It should be noted, however, the owner of the island sanctuary must enable access for others to visit.

When selecting a destination, a glowing icon will indicate which islands you may visit. After reaching a sufficient sanctuary rank, you can grant others access to your island sanctuary.
