Final Fantasy XIV AAR Character Transfer details

FFXIV ARR Eorzea map

What is going onĀ  Final Fantasy Fans!

Let us talk about version 1.0 and 2.0 character transfer.


As we all know, Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn will be released on August 28th of 2013! This has created a lot of questions on character transfers between Final Fantasy 14 V1 and Final Fantasy v2. I would have to agree with the rest of the FFXIV population in the fact that I was really worried that A Realm Reborn would wipe all content leaving us to start new characters. Thankfully Square Enix hooked us up and I quote

“All character data from FINAL FANTASY XIV Version 1.0 (hereafter referred to as Version 1.0) will be transferred to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn (hereafter referred to as FFXIV: ARR).”

This will all be starting in Phase 3 of BETA

Do I like?

This was very exciting to read and although I am happy, I find myself a little upset at the same time. This is only because I am not sure if I even want to play the same character that I previously played. I think I am going to run a new toon either way, but that is my own preference. Some may think I am crazy, but I want to experience this game to its fullest potential, so I do not want to start midway.

World Transfers?

Everyone’s characters will start transferring over to their perspective as Square Enix States

For FFXIV: ARR, additional data centers have been established in regions outside of Japan. Version 1.0 character data has been transferred to these regional data centers, and will be subsequently transferred to Worlds bearing the same names as before.

In the event that your character data has been transferred to an undesired region, we ask that you submit a World transfer application. Applications will be accepted during phase 3, and transfers will occur during phase 4.

You can view the different servers that will be transfer at this link!

If you experience any issues with your transfer, they will be accepting applications for world transfers.

Characters, Quests, Gear, Jobs, and Classes?

Everything that you had before the fallout of version 1.0 should still be available when you enterĀ  A Realm Reborn. There will be a few circumstances such as class actions which both AAR and V1 character will have to retrieve via quests. Job actions should all transfer over like normal though!

Any items that where on your previous character will all transfer over to your reborn toon, but some have either been removed or changed. Quests are of the same manner.

There is A LOT of detailed that where released and I HIGHLY recommend you visit the official Final Fantasy Loadstone for details on your specific circumstances , please if you have ANY questions that you can not find the answer to, COMMENT below and we would happily find them for you!
