FFXIV: ARR – 1.0 Returnees

To Those Who Are Considering to Make a Comeback

Upon the start of official service for FFXIV: ARR, a new regional data center will be established for North American and European players, ensuring an enjoyable gaming experience for players in all regions.

For those of you who are interested, you may refer for more details on the regional data center on the translation of a comment from Producer/Director Yoshida on the regional data center.

As you can see, along with the launch of a regional data center, there could be a case where your character from Version 1.0 could exist on a different world or may exist on the world that belongs on the data center from other regions.

Therefore in preparation for a return to FFXIV: ARR, please check the following:
