  • About Free Companies

    A community to play together with friends on the same World.

    Free companies are player-run organizations which allow their members to pool resources, be it items or gil, to accomplish feats that would be difficult or impossible for a single individual.
    The benefits of joining a free company include a dedicated chat channel for all members, the ability to purchase an estate to serve as the group's base of operations, and the use of free company actions that grant bonuses such as increased experience points.
    No two free companies share the same goals and motivations, so be sure to choose the free company that's right for you.

  • About Linkshells and Cross-world Linkshells

    A dedicated chat channel for players who share a common aim.

    Linkshells and cross-world linkshells are chat groups which allow for quick and easy communication between players who are not necessarily in a party or free company. Unlike free companies, players are able to join multiple linkshells, making it possible to join different communities dedicated to various aspects of the game.

    Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same World.
    Cross-world Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same data center.
  • About PvP Teams

    A team dedicated to enjoying PvP duties.

    PvP teams allow players to participate in team-specific ranked matches in the Feast. Team ratings are given based on performance in the Feast, with top-ranking PvP teams receiving special rewards, and the chance to participate in larger PvP events.
    Teamwork is key, so be sure to find a team with whom you're confident you can hone your skills together.

    PvP duties: allow players to compete against one another in unique instanced arenas.

The Wandering Otter is a small, social Free Company with a core focus on the quality and not quantity of its player base. At one stage, we were one of the largest Free Companies on Balmung by a complete accident. We have since restructured our leadership and overhauled our rules and pruned a lot of inactive members who had been offline for a very, very long time.

The Wandering Otter doesn’t have a massive player base (now) compared to some, but what we do have is a bunch of easy-going people from all walks of life, enjoying their time in game with each other, telling bad jokes, exploring old and new content in a free-speaking environment. We’re casually laidback towards all aspects of the game, be that progression, raiding and anything else that the game has to offer. We go about our business in a calm and easy manner and you’d be hard pressed to find any raging hardcore elitism here.

The Event Calendar will be a big part of the Free Company and our officers love to host such events as mount farms, aquapolis/canals or setting up learning groups for harder content. We also host seasonal events which oftentimes include prizes found both in game and on the Mogstation. There will also be RP events which are open to everybody, although not in any way enforced. We aren’t about pushing things on people they may not necessarily be cool with - and that’s fine.

We’re not just about XIV, either. Life can’t be all about one game and we understand that. We run a discord server that is active all day, every day so that members can keep in touch outside of that MMO life. If you need to go offline for an extended period, please let us know so that we know you’re safe. We’ve unfortunately lost a couple of FC members unexpectedly and it’s taught us to always try to check in with each other.

To try and keep our numbers from going too high again with inactive bloat, however, we are operating under a 120 day remove rule. If you’re offline for 120 days without telling anyone why, it’s assumed that you’re done with the game and you will subsequently be removed.

We've been consistently active throughout the years, though our busiest time does tend to start more towards the late afternoon onwards to the wee hours of the morning, (EST), and until recently our events were centered around the EST time zone. We’re happy to announce that we’ll be starting to host events at times more accommodating to EU players.

There are always two experience boosts active every day, and we are the proud owners of a Mansion in Shirogane that boasts all of the amenities that come with owning land including a Company Workshop, two airships/sub open to everybody, an orchestration, etc, etc.

Do you have friends with you that are also looking to join? Bring them along with you! Provided that they meet the age requirement (18 minimum) and you've told them as much as you can about us, or directed them to this post, the more the merrier!

We require all of our FC members to be at least 18 years of age. This doesn’t mean you’re going to be ERP’d within an inch of your life (sorry) - but it ensures that our FC can continue doing its thing and speaking freely without feeling the need to censor the way they speak because there might be underage kids lurking. We know from experience that folk are more open and honest around each other when they can simply be themselves.

If you're interested in joining The Wandering Otter, please get in touch with either myself here, and I can put you in touch with one of our officers in-game, or you can head over to our Discord server, where you can see our FC rules. (@Officers for immediate attention between 12PM-12AM EST!)

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, I'm sorry for its length! The Wandering Otter wishes you all the best with your FFXIV conquests!

Heyo!! My bro and I are very interested in this FC. We're currently in Heavensward content. We'd love to meet up with someone and discuss the FC and see if we're the right fit. :)))
