Final Fantasy XIV has launched its 6.2 patch today! It is one of the biggest ones in terms of content so far. From new Main Quests to Dungeons with variable difficulty, Trials, and more importantly, a new Island Sanctuary. Players have been longing for this ever since it was announced. The FFXIV Island Sanctuary is a place where players can chill, farm, capture animals, and more. Unlocking it isn’t hard, yet, it takes a bit of time, pretty much like anything else in the game. FFXIV Patch 6.2 is already up so if you’ve been wondering how to unlock the new Island Sanctuary, this guide is for you.
How To Unlock The New FFXIV Island Sanctuary
Players who have downloaded the FFXIV 6.2 patch update and have an active subscription will find the new quest in Old Sharlayan (X:11.9 Y:11.0). For that, there are some steps you need to take first. If you’re a new player, you need to finish all the Main Scenario Quests until the end of Endwalker. For veteran players, you only need to grab the quest. Grabbing the quest will take you to the new FFXIV Island Sanctuary. From there, it is pretty straightforward. You just need to follow a quick tutorial that lasts about an hour or so, depending on how much you explore. Once you finish it, you’re free to do whatever you want in the Island Sanctuary.

The new FFXIV Island Sanctuary has a lot of things that we are yet to discover. The best way to compare it is to something like Animal Crossing. You have an Island and the more things you do, the more things you unlock. At first, you’ll see that you only have a few buildings and crafting recipes, yet, the more your advance on your Island’s rank, the more you’ll get. Like Animal Crossing and other similar games, some content is time-gated in real-time. For example, constructing a landmark might take from 10 to 12 hours of real-time. This is good because FFXIV Patch 6.2 has a lot more content. So, while you wait, you can enjoy a lot more things that the new patch has brought today.
