Main Command 36 Icon.png
Allegiance is the city-state to which you are loyal. There are three city-states that players may obtain an allegiance with: Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah, and Gridania. The city in which a character begins does not determine their allegiance, the allegiance of a player is decided when they enlist in a Grand Company at level 20 as part of the Main Scenario Storyline. Moreover, a player is allowed to change their Grand Company/allegiance after their initial selection, although doing so will result in the loss of any previously obtained Company Rank.

Limsa Lominsa

On the southwestern coast of the island of Vylbrand, under the shadow of ancient cliffs worn by the relentless onslaught of the Rhotano Sea, lies the marine city-state of Limsa Lominsa.


In the eastern reaches of the Aldenard landmass, home to vast, dense woodlands and coursing rivers, lies the forest nation of Gridania.


The bustling commercial hub of Ul'dah sits amid the desolate desert landscape of southern Aldenard.
