With the upcoming reshuffling of the datacenters, world visit system, and free world transfers. Population statistics click here, likely to change dramatically in the coming weeks. The number of active players on different server is also a factor in determining Final Fantasy XIV gil's needs. Our orders are more from NA and JP server. There are various comments in passing about different servers having different kinds of communities. This guide is one of my suggestions. Please let me know how you feel about the community on your server.

AETHER

 

Adamantoise.

Hunt community appears to be present, but trains are not too large.

Healthy Market Board.

 

Cactuar

High population but low public interaction, with a cliquey or insular feel. A community with pride in their server, active on Discord and Facebook.

3rd most active raid scene on Aether, behind Gilgamesh and Sargatanas. Most players hang out in endgame areas.

Healthy market board, but crafting bots make selling difficult.

 

Faerie

Known to be an LGBT-friendly server.

 

Gilgamesh

Popular with redditors.

Hardcore raiding server. Populous, with high clear rates of end-game content.

Fast-paced Market Board.

 

Jenova

Roleplaying-focused server with numerous events held by Free Companies. Known to be communicative and helpful.

Large Discord presence with a dedicated Discord server for Free Companies.

 

Midgardsormr

"Balanced" server in terms of economy and playstyle, with a coordinated hunting linkshell community. Cheap raid food.

Casual to mid-intensity players with a low hardcore playerbase.

 

Sargatanas

Significant endgame raider presence.

Elevated population of FFXIV "content creators".

High-end crafters and decorators. Considered to be a "balanced" server in terms of game aspects.

Brynhildr
