    Q6: What kind of bonuses are there for using a free company airship in exploratory missions compared to entering using the Duty Finder?

    A6: First, there are two ways to enter exploratory missions. One way is to enter using an airship built by the FC, and the other is entering after accepting a request from House Haillenarte in Ishgard.

    When challenging the content from House Haillenarte, you’ll need to talk to an NPC, so that will be handled via the duty finder.

    In addition to this, there are Easy/Normal/Hard difficulties for exploratory missions. The maps are the same; however, the monsters will have rank numbers 1 through 6 instead of levels.

    The FC route will be able to challenge the Hard mode.

    When entering with an FC owned airship, players outside of the FC may also be invited. However, this will require having one member from the FC who own the airship to be in that party. Players are able to fly up to 3 airships, so another benefit FC can get is that they can enter with three full parties, up to 24 players.

    Q7: What’s the minimum number of people that can participate as an FC? Is there a limit to how many people can ride on a single airship?

    A7: At the minimum, 2 players, and a max of 8 people can ride on an airship.

    Q8: Will it be possible to meet up with FC members who are already out exploring?

    A8: While it might be possible to randomly bump into them on the same island, you cannot indicate what specific island to land on.

    Q9: Will it be possible to ride on an FC airship that is already deployed on a voyage?

    A9: No, it will not be possible. Airships heading out on an exploratory mission will return back to the base after 20 minutes.

    Q10: You mentioned that we could trade unwanted equipment we find for points, but how exactly will we be able to use these points?

    A10: You’ll be able to use them on new flying mounts, materials necessary for new crafting recipes, red scrip materials, shards, materia, and more. You can also just desynthesize the equipment.

    Q12: You mentioned that gatherers can take part in exploratory missions, but do we gather existing items, or special items?

    A12: The majority of the items will be materials, so just think of this as gathering in a new area. The gathering (stat) needed is set pretty low, so you should have no problem gathering with the gear you have once when you first hit level 60. However, if you start gathering while others are fighting, it may cause problems to other party members, so make sure to communicate with other members before gathering.

    Q13: I think it’d be convenient to be able to earn esoterics while exploring islands, but will this be possible?

    A13: When starting an exploratory mission, you can obtain esoterics by completing three of the objectives listed on the map.

    Additionally, the starting point for each party will be different every time, and there will be 'aether turbulance' in the area in which you arrive. Attuning to three of these will grant you the ability to fly. You’ll need to do this every time you start an exploratory mission.

    Regarding aetherial gear dropped from chests in exploratory missions
    The main attributes will comply with the item level’s stats, but the parameters will be random. There are gold/silver/bronze chests.

    House sharing feature
    Players can share the house up to 3 other players.
    Players can accept up to 2 house sharing invitations.

    Automatic reclamation of housing
    Houses that have not been entered for more than 45 days and land that has not had a house built on it for more than 45 days will be automatically reclaimed. The time for this can be found in the Timers menu. Furthermore, after 35 days have passed, an email will be sent to all FC members (and owners of private houses) informing them. If you have been subject to automatic reclamation, you will be able to receive an 80% refund in gil for the price you paid for the land from the Resident Caretaker in the housing ward. You will also be able to retrieve indoor and outdoor furnishings that you are not destroyed upon removal. You will need to retrieve your refund and furnishings within 35 days after your house has been reclaimed.

    Automatic reclamation after 45 days is the result of testing based on player data.
