    ≪Search≫
    You will be able to search for other players by specifying online status, class(*1), level, location (area), Grand Company, and language(*2) search conditions.
    *1. If a player’s online status is set to “Seeking a Party,” the feature will search by preferred class.
    *2. The default language will be the same as that set under FINAL FANTASY XIV Config.

    * By default, only players within five levels of your current class level in a given area will be included in the search.
