Previously, the free trial for Final Fantasy XIV was to lvl 35, and only the basic jobs and races in A Realm Reborn were available. With this trial come new restrictions:
- Plays can play until level 60.
- All quests are available up to Heavensward.
- Dark Knight, Astrologian, and Machinist are accessible.
- The Au Ra race is also playable.
These changes come with patch 5.3 and are included in the Starter Edition.
