Acceptance to Terms

In order to play on Highwind XI, you must agree to the terms listed on this page prior to the accumulation of the playtime across your characters reaching 2 hours.

Free to Play

Highwind XI will always be a free-to-play Final Fantasy XI server. If at any time a donation is made to Highwind XI, 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. Exploits are defined as taking advantage of features in the game that were clearly unintentional. An example of an exploit would be creating multiple characters to send themselves additional gil or items. 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 XI. 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 and/or household. Any players seen to have more than 2 accounts will have temporary bans placed on all associated accounts and may choose to appeal.

Maximum 2 Characters Per Account

There are many perks to Highwind XI that allow a character's advancement in the game to be much easier and quicker, removing the need for multiple characters. More storage space and ways to combine select items remove the need for mules. Accounts with characters that are frequently created and deleted fall into the category of not abiding by this rule.

Dual-Boxing Allowed, 3+ Boxing Not Allowed

Players who wish to play two separate characters on 2 separate accounts at the same time are 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 XI has many features incorporated to help players diverge from using more than 1 or 2 characters at the same time.
