Final Fantasy XIV Belt Removal

As you may recall from the Digital Fan Festival earlier this year, the Final Fantasy XIV team has decided to do away with belts, making them no longer available as drops or equippable following the launch of Endwalker. Of course, they can’t just take something like that out of the game without adjusting for it, so there are a few things the devs felt players needed to know about before all that comes to pass.

Things like what happens to the belt slots in the Armoury Chest. So, the good news is that these won’t be going away. Rather the slots will be used to provide extra space for weapons and rings…and something else to be determined at a later point. Players can expect 15 extra slots for weapons and rings each, with the other five to be saved for a “rainy day."

As for what’s going away and what’s staying, it’s not as simple as just saying that all belt-related content will be going away. That’s technically true, however, there are exceptions. Following the change, players will no longer be able to equip belts, receive them via duties or item exchanges, use any (we’re assuming leftover) coffers containing only belts, buy or sell them on the market board, affix or extract materia related or repair and craft them, or turn them in for Leve and supply missions.

That said, not all the belts will just go away. So, some features will still remain so players can deal with what they have left. This includes removing affixed materia, selling them to shop vendors, desynthesis, or discarding them. Apparently, they’ll still work for expert delivery mission turn-ins. It’s also important to note that belts that are in any state of in-use – this being equipped, already being sold by retainers, or living in your Armoury chest – will still exist in the game in some way. Those being sold by the retainers will remain on the market, but no longer searchable. This means players will have to remove belts on the market manually. The belts that are equipped or in the Armoury Chest will be given to the Calamity salvager and can be recovered by visiting them in one of the three main cities.

My advice, just to make things easier on yourself, would be to go ahead and get any materia you want off the belts and sell all but what you need for between now and when the expansion launches.
