One of the few downsides of Final Fantasy XIV, and the major disappointment, is their housing system. They said private houses would be much less expensive, that Free Companies and private houses would be separated (but instead players compete and fight against Free Companies over the very few houses and wards that are available) and a long list of other things that are wrong with it, like the very few wards that they made. I’m lucky because my guild was in the closed beta and at launch so they bought a medium house, and now that they’ve added private rooms in Free Companies’s houses, I bought one as well not a long time ago. It’s pretty much the sole housing available for individuals right now unfortunately.
Anyway, here are screenshots of my room. The grandfather clock makes a sound at every second or so, it’s really nice. I plan to update this post whenever I make changes and add things to my room.
