How To Unlock Island Sanctuary

Shane Williams

Patch 6.2 saw the addition of the Island Sanctuary which is an island that player’s can use to craft, farm and escape from the busy Warrior of Light lifestyle. This page will provide you with the necessary steps to gaining access to the Island Sanctuary.

The Warrior of Light takes the journey to their island.

What is Island Sanctuary

The Island Sanctuary is a private island where players who just want to play a game and relax instead of trying to defeat difficult bosses in hectic trials or dungeons. This Island allows you to explore, grow crops, and play with minions! If you’re someone who purely plays a Disciples of the Hand or Land, don’t worry as everyone is free to join in as there isn’t any restrictions to play as a certain type of a class

Additionally, you’ll be rewarded with Island EXP when you spend more time doing activities at your Island Sanctuary. This EXP will increase your Sanctuary Rank which gives you access to more structures to build on your island. Finally, you’ll gain access to visions, but these are purely there to help you create a better island and are not required to do.

How To Gain Access To The Island Sanctuary in Final Fantasy XIV

Before you can even consider accessing the Island Sanctuary you’ll need to purchase all the expansions up to Endwalker, then you’ll need you’ll need to fully complete the Main Scenario Quests. Once you’ve done so, head over to Old Sharlayan and speak with the Clueless Crier who is located at (X:11.9, Y:11.0). This will unlock the side quest, Seeking Sanctuary.
