This means that the game will not be available for the implantation FFXIV patch 6.18. Due to the technical overhaul, the maintenance will be scheduled for 24 hours. The exact maintenance time is unknown, but it should cover most of July 5. This article will be updated as soon as we get more information.

How Data Center Travel Works

To visit servers at another data centre, you must start the data centre travel process from the character select screen. Once FFXIV Patch 6.18 is live, there will be an option in your menu. The transfer process will start by allowing you to select the server and data centre that you wish to visit.

This system implementation allows you to only visit data centres within your region (or physical centre). Servers in Europe, Japan and Oceania, are unavailable to players on North American servers. The FFXIV team plans to expand the feature to all data centres. Given the differences in data centres between regions, they will monitor player activity and in-game economy.

The [Traveler] tag is added to the character names of players who visit another data centre. However, there are some restrictions on what you can do with other data centres.
