- A Realm Reborn
Final Fantasy 14 is an MMORPG that originally launched in 2010 to a rather rocky start. As a result, the game was shut down and a brand-new development team was brought on board before the game relaunched as A Realm Reborn in 2013. Ever since its rebirth, FF14 has gone from strength and strength and has won numerous awards. The game has received four expansions, as well as regular content updates, and has amassed a following of avid fans and players. The world of Eorzea and beyond is filled with plenty for players to sink their teeth into, so we've got guides to help you out in your journey as the Warrior of Light.

One of the great things about FF14 is that quality of life improvements and additional features are always being added to make the game better as a whole. Here you'll find guides on the most basic features to help you start your new adventure as the Warrior of Light.
Jobs And Classes
Unlike many other MMOs, you're not restricted to one job/class in FF14 and you can switch up your role whenever you feel like it. Here you'll find more general job guides, while our in-depth job play guides can be found at the top of this article.

Character And Gameplay Customization
If you ever want to change your Warrior of Light's appearance to make them more unique, and ultimately make them more "you", here are some how-tos on changing the appearance of your character, your HUD, and more.
Free Companies And Housing
Free Companies can be thought of as "guilds", where you and like-minded players or friends can chat together and plan adventures. In Patch 2.1, housing was added, allowing FCs a place to call home, while personal housing and apartments were added later on. You can find everything you need to know about FCs and housing right here.
Mounts And Companions
You'll soon get tired of running all over Eorzea on foot, but don't worry, your friendly Chocobo mount will be on hand eventually. Here's everything you need to know about unlocking mounts and Chocobo companions.
The Gold Saucer
The Gold Saucer is a minigame lover's paradise. Originally added in Patch 2.51, the Gold Saucer has seen a number of improvements and additions since and boasts a number of ways for you to spend your time when you're not busy saving the world.

PvP Job Guides
Heavensward, Final Fantasy 14's very first expansion, launched in 2015 and focuses on the Dragonsong War raging between Ishgard and the dragonkin. As well as adding a wealth of content and areas, Heavensward raises the level cap to 60, introduces flying mounts, the Au Ra Race, and three new classes — Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist.
The thrill of flying mounts came with a cost — Aether Currents. Scattered around the Heavensward maps, they must be collected before you can fly in each zone. Fortunately, the number of Aether Currents for older expansions was recently reduced. You can find everything you need to track them all down right here.
