What is the World Visit system?

The World Visit system allows you to travel freely between the Worlds of a given logical data center. (*1)

The World upon which your character is created is called their "Home World." The World Visit system allows you to temporarily visit other Worlds while retaining residence on your Home World. Some restrictions apply while visiting other Worlds, but you can still form parties with friends, buy items, and otherwise enjoy gameplay as you might on your Home World.

*1 Please refer to the current Server Status for more information on physical and logical data centers.

Visiting Other Worlds

1Select "Visit Another World Server" from the aetheryte in Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah, or Gridania.

This option is only available from the central aetheryte, not Aethernet shards.

2Select the World you wish to visit.

A list of Worlds on each data center can be found here.

* Your Home World and current World are displayed in this menu.
* Only Worlds that you can visit will appear.

3Respond to the confirmation window to send your request.

Select "OK" to proceed.

* In some cases you will need to wait for the transfer to be processed. If so, a window will appear to inform you of the expected time until completion and your position in the queue.

4The transfer begins automatically.

After the World Visit window appears, you will be automatically transferred to your destination World.

* Once this window appears, the transfer cannot be canceled.

5Your character will appear in the destination World.
