Introducing Settlements - News

Posted by Xenor Vernix on Jul 19, 2011 - 21:34.

Also coming in patch 1.18 are various settlements that will be scattered among the regions. There will be two friendly settlements in each of the starting regions as well as beast tribes which are hostile to adventurers if you come too close. The full details of the friendly settlements are below, as taken from the Lodestone.

"Settlements take on various shapes and forms, and are intended to serve as landmarks and bases of operations for adventurers. Future patches will usher in more features to enhance their practicality, with each location set to become the backdrop for an assortment of new quests.

The Black Shroud

Buscarron's Fold

FFXIV - Settlement - Buscarron's FoldA solitary shack situated at a glade along the Lumberline and serving as a watch house, the care of which has been passed down through the Buscarron line for generations. To this day, members of the family keep vigil over the road’s security, all the while maintaining a life of self-sufficiency.

The Hawthorne Hut

FFXIV - Settlement - The Hawthorne HutA trappers' hut named for the legendary Hawthorne, scourge of the mountains. Now residing there is his descendant Rolfe, a retired adventurer of some repute, who is joined by his loving wife and daughter. Together they welcome all travelers with open arms and heartfelt hospitality.

La Noscea


FFXIV - Settlement - HalfstoneA young colony established on the Vylbrand frontier, named for the rocky stuff that pervades its soil. Owing to the backbreaking efforts of resourceful settlers, what little arable land that exists was made to yield a modest crop of fruits and yams alongside lavender and other rugged native species.

Red Rooster Stead

FFXIV - Settlement - Red Rooster SteadEstablished by a botanist as an experimental farm, the homestead hosts myriad agricultural undertakings such as the selective breeding of livestock and the research of foreign produce. Its proximity to kobold territory has given the residents no recourse but to turn to pirates for protection.


Mythril Pit T-8

FFXIV - Settlement - Mythril Pit T-8The site of a mythril prospecting operation under the management of Amajina & Sons Mineral Concern. Miners and guardsmen alike have taken up residence in the lone habitable structure there, an abandoned inn that had not seen use since hostilities erupted with the Amalj’aa.

The Coffer & Coffin

FFXIV - Settlement - The Coffer & CoffinAn inn frequented by trade caravans, its name derived from a folk song which tells of an optimistic man bound for Ul’dah. The traveler drags along a stout chest, which will become either a coffer to hold his winnings from the gambling dens, or a coffin to bear his own lifeless corpse home.

In addition to the above, beast tribe settlements will also be implemented in patch 1.18. And by way of a sneak preview, imposing strongholds and larger settlements of the beastman persuasion are slated to appear in 1.19—a development that could only bode ill for the peace and prosperity of Eorzea."
