Free companies are independent player-operated organizations, not unlike guilds. While there are no restrictions on who may join a company, players cannot belong to more than one free company at a time.
Forming a free company
To form a company, a player must first draft a petition and then get three other players to sign it. These three players will become the founding members of the company.
Joining a free company
Players can apply to join a free company from the free company's profile page. The application can be reviewed by selecting "Free Company" under "Social" from the main menu. The application can also be withdrawn from this window.
Players can also join by accepting a free company invite.
Companies will advance in rank as their members earn company points by undertaking various duties around Eorzea. These tasks will also earn companies credits, which can be used as currency to purchase various items.
Upon reaching rank 2, a free company can create its own unique company crest. To edit the company crest, a player must have the correct permissions and then speak with an OIC officer of arms located at one of the three Grand Company of Eorzea headquarters.
Once a company has attained the proper rank, they will have the opportunity to apply the crest to pieces of armor.
