Terms of Use

Agreement to the Terms

By creating an account and/or playing on Highwind, you agree to all of the terms and items listed below. If you do not agree to any of the terms listed below, you are not authorized to use any of Highwind's services.


Subject to Change

Highwind's Terms of Use is subject to change at any time and for any reason.

Free to Play

Highwind will always be a free-to-play Final Fantasy XI server. If at any time a donation is made to Highwind, for any reason whatsoever, the donation will be made strictly as a "thank you" for offering a place to play. Characters, character stats, items, or any other in-game item or experience will never be given in exchange for real money currency.

No Cheating

Cheating is determined as using a tool or exploit that enhances or alters gameplay to give you an unintended, unfair advantage over another player or the game. This includes, but is not limited to, using programs that alter the location of your player, grants special abilities, items, stats, etc that are otherwise outside the intended methods of the game, or using exploits that were clearly not meant to be part of the game. Bots (software/apps outside the original software or not shown on the approved list below) that perform actions on your behalf are not allowed.

Players caught cheating will be assigned infraction points. Players who reach specific levels of infraction points will be subject to warnings, in-game jail time, suspensions and permanent bans from Highwind. Infractions will be listed on your "My Account" page. If you have to ask yourself or another person if something might be considered cheating, just assume that it is.

Maximum 2 Accounts Per Player

As a means of maintaining fairness throughout Vana'diel, we have a strict rule of 2 accounts per person. Any players seen to have more than 2 accounts will have temporary bans placed on all associated accounts and may choose to appeal.

Multiple Characters Per Account Allowed

We encourage having as many characters as you'd like! Just as you were able to have up to 16 characters on your retail character, you will also have the option of having up to 16 characters on your Highwind account as well.

Dual-Boxing Allowed, Multi-Boxing Not Allowed

Players who wish to play two separate characters on 2 separate accounts at the same time and permitted to do so. Players who wish to play more than 2 character simultaneously are not permitted to do so. Players who overuse the "multi-boxing" method take away from the intended experience of the gameplay. Highwind has many features incorporated to help players diverge from using more than 1 or 2 characters at the same time.
