  • 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.

    PvP teams allow players to participate in team-specific ranked matches in the Feast. Team ratings are given based on performance in the Feast, with top-ranking PvP teams receiving special rewards, and the chance to participate in larger PvP events.
    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.

I could sit here at my computer and type out the same spiel about the basics of what the FC offers, but that isn’t my style. That isn’t our style. Instead let me tell you why I love Howl <Awoo> and every one of our members.

Howl has been my and my husband's passion in game since August of 2017. It has grown from just the two of us with a medium house to a thriving FC with 40+ active members sharing a Large house and great times together.

We are a family first and foremost. Howl is welcoming and inclusive to all. We focus on avoiding cliques by helping each other and interacting with all members. When we aren't in game, we chat a lot on discord and that just makes the workday go by that much faster. We support each other in game and out without any unnecessary drama.

I love this FC because we crack each other up, help each other out, and generally do it in a good nature. We poke fun at each other without being easily upset etc. We have a great balance across the entire LGBTQ+ alphabet soup in varying different views, and yes even Furries, Pups, and the like.

From just now leveling to Savage raiding we have folks who do it and are willing to help, teach, learn, etc. without making anyone feel like the game must be played any one specific way. There is a certain joy in watching someone new to the FC instantly feel welcomed. That feeling when they hop on Discord to listen, but saying they are too shy to talk and after just a few minutes they feel comfortable and safe. Also, to see that the FC runs well when you aren't online to coordinate things tells me we did something right and our members are just that good. No one gets ignored. Ideas about improving the house, new events, etc. are all considered, and we do our best to implement. This FC isn't about any one member, but instead about every member. Without our family members this FC doesn’t exist.

Awooing in Alliance chat at the start of our weekly Alliance raid runs has become a special joy in my life. And then there is Barwoo Trivia. We take pub trivia and bring it to the Final Fantasy community. It really is a treat to see so many people come together under our roof and just have a grand time answering trivia, being social, and having fun.

Here are what some other members have to say:

“I'm a working adult and I've gone through a few "Drama" FC periods. I've seen an FC die. I've left an FC to join one for RP and for Raiding only to leave it because I felt like I wasn't getting much of either. I've tried to make an FC to see it fail. I've been in FCs where for the most part all of the people were great but that I couldn't mesh well with their personalities. I joined an FC where I loved the people, but a working Californian cannot really play actively with Europeans.
I've finally realized after a few years what I'm really looking for. People whose company I enjoy and who I will do content with. I want to play the game. I want to play it with cool people. I found that in Howl. In Howl, I haven't felt lonely. I haven't felt like I couldn't play with anyone. Everyone is so welcoming, and we want to play games with each other! From mount farms, to non-FFXIV nights, to movie nights, to let's-run-something-nearly-every-day-of-the-week. Don't feel comfy talking? That's okay too. We just want you to be comfy and to have fun.

I'm pretty introverted and shy and I found a place in Howl for me. Awoooooo!” – Kage Kiryuu


I left my first FC on a really sour note and, as someone who suffers from depression and every form of anxiety imaginable, I was really scared that I simply wouldn't be able to fit in when I joined Howl. The start was a bit rough, but I soon got to know the leaders and the other members and I found myself making friends faster than I'd ever been able to before.
I'm introverted and shy, but I soon found myself openly talking to people and found that everyone was caring and accepting of me, flaws and all. Through Howl, not only have I managed to gain a bit of much-needed self-confidence, but I also met people who now I call some of my closest friends.
We might be all a little insane at times, but we're a family. I'm a happy sheep who's finally found his herd.

So, yeah, join Howl <Awoo> it's an amazing place, with welcoming people, and an amazing house. If you want more information, or just want to chat message Vivi Orunitia, Amber Darkmane, Faye Astera, or Sax Highwind in game. Also, feel free to message us on Discord Vivi @Rennon#0001, Amber - @Riley G.#5584, Faye - @blue_raccoon09#8244, Sax - @JJTam#8354.

TLDR: Medium, Social/Casual FC, welcomes everyone, LGBTQ+ inclusive, yes, we have furries, pups, normies and everything in between. Large house in Mist. Very active Discord. This is a family of people all over the world.

I have been playing since Beta 3 and have seen the community on Cactuar grow and flourish. I would daresay that we have the best community in FFXIV. With Howl <Awoo> we have found the embodiment of the community for sure. I love this family and our friends.

Hi, been looking for a new active FC after coming back to the game from hiatus and finding my old fc to be dead. I used to be a raider back in ARR and HW but now really just looking for a place to chill and find people do stuff with and the occasional extreme

Hello there! I'm a returning player looking for a new FC. I'm pretty casual, but came across your posting yesterday :)
