Shirogane Housing and Relocation Details For FFXIV Patch 4.1

Starting in patch 4.1, players will be able to purchase an estate in the residential district of Shirogane. A new relocation feature will also be introduced, allowing players to move their private or free company estate to another district.

Read on for the full post, or view it on the Lodestone here.

Shirogane

As with the three residential districts of Eorzea, Shirogane is divided into 12 wards, each with its own subdivision. Estates in the Shirogane district have a Far-Eastern aesthetic by default.

Relocation

Relocation allows players to move their estate hall and accompanying furnishings to a new plot. The destination can be situated in any residential area and be of any size.

Relocating to a New Plot

To begin the process, inspect the placard located at the entrance of the destination plot and select Purchase Land. A prompt for relocation will appear, allowing you to move your estate immediately after the purchase is complete. You are not required to relinquish ownership of your old plot prior to relocation. In the case of company estates and estate sharing, all players with access to the estate will receive a notification when the process is complete.

* Only free company members who have been granted authority to purchase and relinquish land can relocate company estates.
 
* Players who are inside an estate at the time of relocation will be automatically moved outside.

Cost of Relocation

When purchasing a plot for relocation, 30% of the minimum value of your old plot will be applied towards the price of the new one.

(Cost of Relocation) = (Destination Plot Price) – (30% of Old Plot Price)

* In the event reimbursement for the old plot exceeds the price of the destination plot, the cost of relocation will be waived. Please note, however, you will not receive gil for the amount that exceeds the cost of the destination plot.

Furnishings

Upon relocation, placed furnishings including those normally discarded after removal will be put in a storeroom at the destination plot. See below for further details about storerooms.

While the limit of storerooms is normally dependent on plot size, the limit for all plots will temporarily increase as follows to accommodate relocation:

Indoor Furnishings   Outdoor Furnishings

400 items

 

40 items

This limit is based on the maximum number of indoor and outdoor furnishings allowed for large plots to ensure players can immediately relocate upon the release of patch 4.1. However, you will not be able to complete relocation if the total number of items placed both in your estate and stored in your storeroom exceeds 400 indoor furnishings and 40 outdoor furnishings.

Please note that chocobo stables and miniature aetherytes will not count toward this limit, as they will be automatically placed in the garden of the destination plot.

* The teleport destination for miniature aetherytes will be automatically changed to that of destination plots.
 
* Private chambers and company workshops will be moved in their entirety and retain their state. 
* Additional items cannot be placed in the storeroom after relocation while exceeding the normal storage limit.

Exterior Fixtures

Default exterior fixtures will be altered to match the new residential area and plot size, in the event that they are different. Unique exterior fixtures (e.g. Paissa House Wall) will be carried over to the new plot.

Example:
Moving from a cottage in Mist to a house in the Goblet.

Old Plot Exterior   Destination Plot Exterior

Riviera Cottage Wall (Composite)

 

Oasis House Wall (Composite)

Interior Fixtures

Interior fixtures will remain intact, unless the relocation results in an estate hall with fewer floors. In this case, the fixtures will be lost alongside the floor.

Miscellaneous

The following will be carried over in their entirety when relocating to a new plot:

  • Private Chambers / Workshops / Airships / Stabled Chocobos / Shared Estate Settings

Sale of Old Plots

Once relocation is complete, old plots will be made available for purchase to other players.

Storerooms

Patch 4.1 will see the introduction of storerooms, which offer additional storage space for estate halls, apartments, and private chambers. Furnishings normally discarded upon removal can also be placed in storerooms to be used again at a later time.

* Relocation of an estate is not required to access storerooms.
 
* Furnishings normally discarded upon removal cannot be returned to a player’s inventory. They must be placed directly from the storeroom. 
* Culinarian furnishings that grant attribute bonuses can only be returned to a player’s inventory if they have never been used.

Storeroom Limit

The number of items allowed in a storeroom is equal to the number of furnishings that can be placed in the estate.
