Auxiliary Buildings 2.0

Latest updates on your Auxiliary Buildings and how it benefits your Empire.

As you can see, Final Fantasy: A New Empire offers plenty of buildings to assist you with your Empires with your offense as well as defense purposes. The first thing to remember, each of the Auxiliary Buildings has its distinct uses and usually will need to be unlocked with a building unlock. As a matter of fact, some of them are earnable through Events. Also, in Adventure Halls (pre-dark world only as of now), and Moogle Market after some time of their release. 

In this guide, we will cover some more in-depth information about the new building known as Unity Beacon. Also, we will cover the Dark Sanctum, Dark Enclave, Elite Barracks, Dark Workshop, in addition to the Dark Foundry.

Then we will include the latest updates on the Artificer’s Shop, Guild Adventurers Hall, Proving Grounds, Order of Heroes, Mythic Forge, Magitek Converter, Command Center, Elemancy Hall, Defense Ministry, Dark Strategy Hall, Ignis Diner, Mercenary Pits, Crystal Nexus, Monster Pen, as well as the Arcanaeum.

Check out the features of the Auxiliary Buildings and how they can benefit your gameplay. 

Conclave of Lucis




(January 21st, 2020)

The Conclave of Lucis allows you to summon your spirits to fight alongside with you. This is very similar to the Astral Shrine and the Royal Stables when it comes to the features. You summon your spirit as if you were to summon your Astrals or Mounts. Leveling and Skilling it is the same as well. The differences are that your King of Lucis is summoned he is automatically passive, no need to send him into your marches or anything of that sort. 

When you are defending your Empire, your King of Lucis will trigger and also defend for you but even better his stats will boost an additional 5%. No there is not anything you have to do in order to obtain that but to put one skill point into his summoning power. 

Want to learn more about the Conclave of Lucis along with the spirits? Be sure to look out for the in-depth King of Lucis: Somnus guide coming soon!

In conclusion, there are multiple Auxiliary buildings, all with their benefits and new stats, to help boost your Empires. As a matter of fact, most of the buildings provides a more balanced boost to your stats, assisting you in every style of gameplay. 

Although, the buildings that mention something more specific like Dark City Defense Armor, like in the Magitek Converter, are more favored into the defense aspect. Also, if it says something like Dark City Assault Attack as it states in the Proving Grounds, then it is more geared for the offense side of things. 

Be sure to take advantage of Events and Realm Bosses that drop the Auxiliary Blueprints that you need for your Empire so you can stay on top of your game!

  1. QUTX says

    First of all, many thanks for your great efforts with keeping up to date with all the ever changing game stats!! Very helpful!
    Two things: You are missing the Treasury in your list – this building got 10 additional levels at least in the first batch of upgrades.
    – Maybe Moogle Market, Travelling Merchant and Casino should also be mentioned here as static buildings and the blueprint requirements for each building pre aux upgrade would also be neat to have in one place.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    1. QUTX says

      Ah and the Monster Ranch of course

      ConcreteRos3 says

      Hello QUTX! You are sweet and most welcome, anything to help anyone!

      Thank you for reminding me about the Treasury, I will get that added into the article soon.

      Our lovely xAlyKatx has made a Buildings guide that reflects all the buildings pre-dark and so on. My goal was to elaborate on the auxiliary building’s updates post-Dark World.

      But thank you once again, I will add the Treasury! I appreciate you taking the time to comment below and let me know!

      Have a fabulous weekend!
