Final Fantasy XIV New Housing Lottery System in Patch 6.1

The new housing land-Empyreum will be available for purchase in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.1, Mid-April 2022. Since there is too little meat for so many wolves, the development team will use a lottery system to purchase all land for equity.




There might be many players with enough FFXIV Gil on them but can't buy houses in Final Fantasy XIV because there is no more housing available in existing housing land.


And there might also be players with no house and not enough Gil. Now is the best time to get prepared by buying cheap and safe FFXIV Gil and get ready for the new housing land.


Why buy FFXIV Gil before the release:

  1. We (MmoGah) have plenty of Gil in stock, so the delivery time is very short.
  2. The FFXIV Gil prices might rise after the new patch, so the price is relatively low now.
  3. You can be fully prepared when the new housing lottery system opens.
  4. The Gil market might get intense if you want to buy FF14 Gil after the release. Players only have 5 days to submit their lottery entries, and you don't want to miss the timeline because you couldn't gather enough Gil in time.

So, it is better to get prepared ahead than to worry at the last minute.



Lottery Schedule

Lotteries operate on a 9-day cycle (Earth time), and are divided into two periods.


Entry period:

The entry period lasts 5 days (Earth time), during which players may submit their lottery entries.

Results period:

The results period lasts 4 days (Earth time), during which players may confirm lottery results and finalize land purchases.


If you can't finalize your purchase within 4 days (or less than 4 days) after winning the lottery, your claim to that plot will be forfeit. Furthermore, a 50% cancellation fee will be deducted from the deposit made at entry.





To travel to Empyreum, you must first complete the sidequest “Ascending to Empyreum
