  • About Free Companies

    A community to play together with friends on the same World.

    Free companies are player-run organizations which allow their members to pool resources, be it items or gil, to accomplish feats that would be difficult or impossible for a single individual.
    The benefits of joining a free company include a dedicated chat channel for all members, the ability to purchase an estate to serve as the group's base of operations, and the use of free company actions that grant bonuses such as increased experience points.
    No two free companies share the same goals and motivations, so be sure to choose the free company that's right for you.

  • About Linkshells and Cross-world Linkshells

    A dedicated chat channel for players who share a common aim.

    Linkshells and cross-world linkshells are chat groups which allow for quick and easy communication between players who are not necessarily in a party or free company. Unlike free companies, players are able to join multiple linkshells, making it possible to join different communities dedicated to various aspects of the game.

    Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same World.
    Cross-world Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same data center.
  • About PvP Teams

    A team dedicated to enjoying PvP duties.

    Teamwork is key, so be sure to find a team with whom you're confident you can hone your skills together.

    PvP duties: allow players to compete against one another in unique instanced arenas.

Hey there, we're A Grain of Salt.

This FC was created by two lightly salted veterans who have adored the game since 1.x/2.0 and want to share that love and seasoning with others. Our goal is to create a close-knit environment where people can pursue whatever aspect of the game appeals to them, and have the option of learning the parts that may otherwise confuse or intimidate - all with a smooth chocolatey social center.

And hey, if you get a little salty that's fine - we all do sometimes! In the end just don't take it too seriously, and have fun.
You know, take it with a grain of salt... if you will. ;)

At the moment we're looking for players of all styles/stages and dabble in a variety of content within the game, however this is not an RP/venue FC so we won't be able to meet your needs if that's what you're looking for in particular. We've done endgame content although given real life responsibilities we tend to play a bit more casual-progressive these days. (Aka. We'll do the harder stuff now and then such as savage and extremes, but we're not focused on clearing the tier as it comes out or unlocking new gear ASAP.) We're also total lore nuts and love to talk about different views on the game and story as a whole.

Our usual antics include, but are not limited to:
♦ Keeping those sweet, sweet FC buffs up
♦ Running Roulettes
♦ Crafting/Gathering
♦ MSQ/Side Quests
♦ Maps/Mount Farms
♦ Deep Dungeons/Variant Dungeons
♦ Island Sanctuaries
♦ Being nerds on Discord
♦ Chilling at the Salt Shaker, our medium house!
* We will run harder content with the FC if people show interest; we're always willing to teach and learn along the way no matter if it's new or old.

We just got ourselves a lovely LB medium home, and we'll get to work on Airships/Submarines, gardening, and making it a comfy hub for folks to hang out in. If all of this sounds up your alley and you'd like in on the action, please contact me ingame (Pavnix Aldore) or on Discord (Pavnix#1434) and we'll chat/get things sorted! Thanks for stopping by, we appreciate you.
