[Top 10] Best FF14 Servers That Are Fun (2021 Edition)

Best FF14 Servers

If you’re new to Final Fantasy 14, you’ve probably wondered which server will suit your play style the best, and while the servers are all fairly balanced, some do have a heavier emphasis on certain content. All servers are divided up by region: North America, Europe, and Japan. Within each region, servers are then divided up again between two or three data centers.

With the World Visit System, you’re able to visit any world within your data server although with a few minor restrictions to certain activities such as retainers, joining a Free Company, and attending Ceremonies of Bonding. Otherwise, interactions between servers on a data center are pretty freeing, and you’ll often find yourself matched with players from other worlds during duties.

Outside your data center, however, you won’t have this type of freedom, so be sure to choose a server wisely! Without further ado, here are ten of the most popular servers at the moment and what they’re known for.

10) Lamia

Lamia is located on North America’s Primal data center and has a couple of great things going for it. Friendly and a tight-knit community, Lamia is an excellent choice for new players looking to join on the Primal data center. Lamia also has a fair mix of English and Spanish speakers as well as several popular raiding teams and Youtubers.

What’s awesome about this server:

  • Friendly and great for new players
  • Raiding can be both casual and hardcore
  • Some popular content creators on this server

9) Exodus

Exodus is also located on North America’s Primal Server. If you’re interested in raiding but not quite sure if you’re ready for hardcore raiding content, then this more casual server will be a great choice. Exodus has a fairly friendly and supportive community alongside a modest amount of players interested in role-play.

  • Casual raiding content
  • Friendly and supportive community
  • Some role-play content

7) Kujata

Kujata is on Japan’s Elemental data center, and of the Japanese servers is second in terms of an English speaking population.
