  • 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.

    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.

Academia Astra «Astra»
Empyreum: Ward 14, Plot 12 (Large)

Who we are
Academia Astra aims to be an inclusive, friendly, and helpful free company for new players on Sargatanas to learn about Final Fantasy XIV Online. Our goal is to provide an environment where new players can ask questions and learn without judgment, and make mistakes without punishment.

We founded our free company to help new players. We focus on helping our members learn and explore all that Eorzea has to offer, including (but not limited to):

☆ Quests, dungeons, trials, and raids
☆ Open world (FATEs, Eureka, Bozja)
☆ Deep Dungeons (Palace of the Dead, Heaven-on-High)
☆ Crafting and gathering
☆ PvP
☆ Minigames (The Gold Saucer)
☆ Glamour

Academia Astra is not limited to new players, however. Sprouts, returners, seasoned players, and mentors are all welcome to join. We seek to provide resources, knowledge, and assistance to all members. Though we are not LGBTQ-centric, we are LGBTQ-friendly, with keen representation within our leadership.

What we provide
We strive to provide a fun, laid-back social community for new and returning players. In addition to our fantastic community, we also offer plenty of perks and amenities for members.

Perks include:
• Heat of Battle III (+15% battle exp) active all week long
• Experienced mentors to answer questions and provide assistance
• Omnicrafters and gatherers
• Active discord server
• Large Empyreum estate in a fantastic location (Quick access to the market board and retainer bell!)
• 500,000 gil incentive to members who create an FC room
• Garden plots and chocobo stables

What we're seeking
We are recruiting new and returning players as well as more experienced ones. Our community is still growing, and we're looking for those who want to grow with us.

We are especially looking for the following:
• Mentors and experienced players willing to teach and lead
• Crafters and Gatherers
• Recruiters
• Event hosts
• Gardeners


We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding toxicity.

Join our staff
We are an overall laid-back free company. But for members looking to get more involved, we have multiple ways to contribute and earn a chance to advance within our ranks. We have paths to advancement spanning a wide range of activities for players of every level of skill and experience.

Mentorship: Answering questions and assisting new members
Social: Member recruitment, hosting events
Content: Organizing and leading content runs, map parties, extremes, Eureka, Bozja, etc
Tradecraft: Crafting and gathering
Groundskeeping: Gardening, chocobo feeding


If you are interested in contributing or learning any of the above, apply to become a part of our staff! As part of our staff team, you will help guide and foster the growth of our free company and can advance to the rank of Officer. Previous officer experience is not required, so this is an excellent opportunity for those looking to learn.

Visit us in Empyreum, Ward 14, Plot 12!
There are usually members hanging around who can invite you. You can also click on the placard outside the house to view the Free Company profile and submit an application there. If you do not have access to Ishgard, you can directly contact one of the officers below in-game or on discord.

Hi Scarlett/Sirius, I've been playing FFXIV for about a month now. I've seen a lot of things and played most jobs to 55-60. Working my way through the content and making the most of the Road to 80. I'd love an opportunity to join Academia Astra. I'm pretty easy to find in-game. Thanks for your time!
