Patch 6.2 Part 1 Miscellaneous Updates
Ready up, Warriors of Light! The snazzy new street punk wear is up on Mogstation!
The glamour originally exclusive only to Korean and Chinese Mogstation is finally available on the online store! Fans have been eagerly awaiting its global release ever since its original release in May, with a Mog design on the back adding a welcoming, adorable touch to the otherwise dark and edgy ensemble. The contrast ended up winning hearts all over!
And that's not all! It seems that you're able to equip either outfit regardless of gender! How awesome is that? It seems they're continuing the streak after the explosive reception the maid outfits got when they were announced to be gender-neutral. I, for one, am definitely going to buy both.
As if it's not enough, a Shiba Inu mount called Megashiba is also making its debut online, one that is relentlessly charming and is also a must-have (very objectively speaking, of course). I mean, how can you resist when it's looking at you with such large, doe, puppy dog eyes? They really do know how to appeal to their audience.
The newest store update is sure to be a big hit for players this time around. What do you think of the newest additions to the store? Are you going to get any of them? Let us know down below!

Housing — the game's most popular luxury item only a lucky few can own.
How can that be? Surely owning a house can't be that much of a big deal when you're the Warrior of Light off on a never-ending journey to defeat evil and keep the scales of the world balanced.
Surprisingly, housing is a whole new journey all unto itself, one that plenty of players undertake with great fervor. Despite the recent drawbacks the housing lottery has caused, the community remains as vibrant and creative as always, with plenty of gorgeous visuals and a surplus of inspiration to impart.

Communities like Twitter and Reddit have hashtags dedicated to showcasing housing portfolios, and all of this content can seem daunting to first-timers or anyone who's interested in dipping their toes into housing but don't know where to start.
Luckily there are hundreds of resources online to get you started. HGXIV is one of many sites that is dedicated to providing guides to aspiring interior designers, such as lighting, glitching and various other techniques that you wouldn't find anywhere else in the game. With all of this knowledge under your belt, you can become closer to achieving the house of your dreams!
Placeholder for tweet 152476387652450304 If Reddit and Twitter aren't enough for you or you want to see portfolios from outside of the US community, Housingsnap is a Japanese-based website that may interest you.
You may also come across submissions titled that have the word "commission" in them — it's a pretty common occurrence to hire someone to decorate your house for you. If you own a house but would like to skip the hassle of learning how to decorate your own plot, there are housing aficionados who would be more than happy to take over for you! Here are a few examples of designers you can contact. On average, commissions will cost around 5-25 million gil depending on the size of your plot, so make sure you can afford it.
Placeholder for tweet 1522032978880339973 Placeholder for tweet 152381317080816435 It's been a truly exhilarating experience watching how the housing community has evolved throughout the years. As someone who plays the game for the hardcore raiding aspect, I appreciate how the game focuses on the casual demographic by providing a nearly endless repertoire of housing items to decorate your plot, as well as keeping the social aspect intact.
Placeholder for tweet 153885644661157478 Being able to log in, talk to your neighbors, attend various different events in venues around the neighborhood, and even the simple act of house hopping to see the personality in how people decorate their living space — all of this is a perfect way to preserve and nurture an important social space for players who feel isolated in today's ongoing pandemic.
It's time for us all to find something else to do for a day!
Next Monday, the servers will be going down for 24-hour maintenance. But not just the game servers; maintenance will also be performed on the lodestone and the companion app simultaneously. North American players will have holiday festivities to look forward to during July 4th at least!
What will you occupy your time with on maintenance day? Let us know below!
