How to avoid Reservation Restrictions in Final Fantasy XIV

Finding love in Final Fantasy XIV isn't easy.

Final Fantasy XIV lets players partake in plenty of social activities. The story and raids often take center stage in the game, but if you’ve got someone special, you can get married in the popular MMO. However, if you try to schedule a wedding during maintenance, your event could get canceled.

Cancellations have been an issue in Final Fantasy XIV during updates, so Square Enix continues to update the Final Fantasy XIV Lodestone with the upcoming maintenance periods. While these notes are handy, the team rarely posts this info to their social media pages, making the Lodestone a critical resource.

If you want to start in an Eternal Bonding Ceremony, head to the Final Fantasy XIV Online Store to pick your Promise type. The higher the bonding tier, the more rewards you’ll receive.
