  • 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.

About Us

Greetings, my fellow Eorzeans! o/ The Wings of Winter «Drift» is once again opening up its recruitment to any and all who wish to join!

Our free company is North American based and has been around since the launch of 2.0, and we are looking to expand our ranks! We are asking you, the community, to come and join us in growing our numbers and family!

We welcome everyone from new players, veterans, raiders, RPers, socialites, PVPers, casuals, and everything in between! We have an active Discord that shares most of our announcements as well as a large house in Empyreum (Ward 14, Plot 42).

We're here to offer as much help as we can whenever, wherever, and however we can whether it be inside the FC or on the outside. We don't shy away from the difficult and try to be always on top of our game.

As it stands, we have events several nights a week ranging from raid nights¹ to map nights and everything in between. There's always more to come in the future, but we need your help to get there. So come on and get involved!

The most important thing is to have fun! We can help with that. We'll welcome you with open arms and a cup of hot cocoa to ease that cold and give you a warm welcome!

How to Join

Contact our FC leader, Vespaer Dagalli; any of our officers listed below; or any «Drift» member for more information, and we'll all do our best to give you the home that you are looking for. ^_^

If any officer or Vespaer is online, we can invite you immediately! Alternatively, you can send an application to us via any member's FC profile! Just right click the FC member, select View Company Profile, and in the window that appears, click Submit Application. You can often find us hanging out around our FC House (Empyreum Ward 14, Plot 42)! As soon as we receive your application, an officer will reach out to you.

Officers:
~ Laburei Jaderabbit
~ Xira Dagalli
~ Hatsuko Chosai
~ Rosemary Catbuttsu
~ Telsia Twiceborn
~ Emeline Hespiros
~ Sienna Widogast

If you have any questions or concerns, just leave a comment below or message us in-game, and someone will gladly assist you! We have players in every hemisphere, so someone is almost always online!

«Drift» and its members do not discriminate others for any reason including, but not limited to, race, religion, creed, or sexual identity.

Note for Applicants: Prior to approving applications, we like to reach out to answer any questions applicants may have and make sure we're a good fit for them! If you submit an application, please be aware that it may take a day or so for schedules to sync up, so one of our officers can reach out to you!


¹ «Drift» is not a raiding-focused FC and does not have official FC statics; however, members are more than welcome to form or join their own statics if they wish!

Hatsuko ChosaiBalmung [Crystal]

Hello, friends! I'm Hatsuko! ^^

I've been a member of Wings of Winter «Drift» for about four years, and since joining, they have been a constant positive force in my time with FFXIV. Whether you're looking to PVP, run roulettes, or even grind out BLU levels, someone is always willing to give their support!

This FC has increased my enjoyment of FFXIV ten-fold and continues to get better with time and more members, so don't hesitate to join up yourself! >^.^<

Have had a very bad/lonely first experience with this game.. hoping things will be better second time around... could really use some friends... Would have to make a new character btw, guess you could say I started on the wrong server.

-

Community Member Hatsuko ChosaiBalmung [Crystal]

I'm sorry to hear your first experience wasn't a good one. We'd be happy to give you a home on Balmung if you re-rolled there!

Keep an eye on this page: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/worldstatus/

The World Status page will tell you when Balmung is opened for character creation. Alternatively, you can transfer your character to Balmung.

Either way, let us know when you're on! Stop by the FC house in the Goblet, Ward 18, Plot 60, or use the player search for one of our officers!

I would love to join the FC! I'm a rather long time player, since 2.0 really, but I usually have ran solo due to not really finding an FC I meshed with! I work third shift so my play time can get really weird at times due to needing to sleep and and such! I also sent in an application in game!

Hello! I am new to FFXIV and am looking for a group of friends to enjoy the game with. I played FFXI years ago and have had a love hate relationship with WoW since. I would be happy to join you guys if you don’t mind a sprout along for the ride.

Alexia VaruunBalmung [Crystal]

Hello! another Spout looking for a place to grow! <3 been playing MMO's for about 12 years and sadly my community of friends did not end up taking a liking to FF14 as much as I did. Just trying to find a friendly place to hang out, run content and learn the game ^^

-

Community Member Hatsuko ChosaiBalmung [Crystal]

Hiya, Alexia! I apologize for not seeing this comment previously! This may be way late, but we're actively recruiting again; if you're still looking for a place, please don't hesitate to reach out!

Hi There,

i am a relatively new player looking to join a welcoming free company that is helpful to new players!

-

Community Member Hatsuko ChosaiBalmung [Crystal]

Hiya! We'd love for you to join us! If you can make it to The Goblet, head to Ward 18, Plot 60. You can submit an application in game through one of the members you find there. ^^

If you don't have access to the residential area in Ul'dah, you likely need to do the quest Where the Heart Is (The Goblet) (https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/playguide/db/quest/44ce2d9b6c8/).

I'll also preemptively let the other officers know of your interest, and we'll keep an eye out for you too!

Boone DubhaillBalmung [Crystal]

Hi, I'm still pretty new to FF14 been solo leveling as a PLD. I've been tanking on WoW both in a hardcore and completionism sense always striving to be the best of the best in each bit of content (except PVP) I'm a quick learner respectable person but most of all I'm dedicated to learning, be it about optimizing my class, gems/stats and most importantly.. GLAMOUR baby! haha.. Ok but seriously Im new and looking for friends and a place to call home to expirience this wonderful game with, thanks

-

Community Member Hatsuko ChosaiBalmung [Crystal]

Hiya, Boone! Are you specifically looking for a raiding FC? If so, our FC doesn't have set raid events (or a dedicated team for raiding). While we do have many members who raid regularly, it's not a fixed FC event. If you are looking for a WoW-like raiding FC, I'm not sure ours would be a good fit. But if you are looking for something more generalized, we can certainly help there! We have people who do all levels of content from social-only players to raiders who've cleared ultimates.

Hiya, Ash! ^^ I apologize for not seeing this sooner (we don't get notified of new comments on this post ><)!

I will keep an eye out for you in-game and reach out if I see you online! Our FC is in a housing district that you will be unable to get to based on your current main story quest progression, but that's OK! We can reach out directly, or if you see one of our members out and about (look for the «Drift» FC tag!), you can view their company profile and apply from there! ^^
