Sale of Plots and Apartments

The various residential districts on the new Worlds will be unavailable at launch, in order to provide an opportunity for both existing and new players to purchase housing. This restriction will be lifted when the sale of plots and apartments begin in Patch 6.1.

Players will not be able to travel to the residential districts, with the exception of the first ward of Empyreum, which will be open for display only. As such, you will not be able to progress or complete the following quests until the sale of plots and apartments begin in Patch 6.1.

  • Sidequest: Where the Heart Is (Mist)
  • Sidequest: Where the Heart Is (The Goblet)
  • Sidequest: Where the Heart Is (The Lavender Beds)
  • Sidequest: I Dream of Shirogane
