World Visit System

Last Update: -

The following guide describes how to use the World Visit System, introduced in Patch 4.57.


The World Visit System allows you to travel freely between the Worlds in your data center.

Your character may travel to other Worlds and create parties with friends, trade items, and take part in duties. However, certain features are only available while your character is on its Home World.

Visiting Other Worlds

The World Visit System can be accessed from Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah, or Gridania. In some cases, you may have to wait before your request to transfer can be processed. When your character is ready to be transferred, a window will automatically appear to inform you.

Follow the steps below to visit another World.

1Select "Visit Another World Server" from the aetheryte in Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah, or Gridania.

This option is only available from the central aetheryte, not Aethernet shards.

2Select the World you wish to visit.

A list of Worlds on each data center can be found here.

* Your Home World and current World are displayed in this menu.
* Only Worlds that you can visit will appear.

3Respond to the confirmation window to send your request.

Select "OK" to proceed.

* In some cases you will need to wait for the transfer to be processed. If so, a window will appear to inform you of the expected time until completion and your position in the queue.

4The transfer begins automatically.

After the World Visit window appears, you will be automatically transferred to your destination World.

* Once this window appears, the transfer cannot be canceled.

5Your character will appear in the destination World.


1. You may only visit Worlds on the same data center as your Home World.

Please refer to the following list to see which Worlds your character can visit.

3. Once a transfer begins, it cannot be canceled.
