Buildings of FFXVANE


Building to fill up your city is the most basic gameplay of FF15: A New Empire. Buildings not only let you unlock new features such as researching abilities or sending resources to your guildmates, but let you do basic things like train troops or create resources so you can keep building your empire.

Most buildings can be leveled up. Doing this requires various resources, just like building them does, and it will take a certain amount of time, depending on the building and the level of the upgrade. Many building upgrades have various requirements of other buildings at a certain level to be able to upgrade them, and no building can ever exceed the level of your Citadel.

Note that your building is limited by the building queue. By default this queue can only contain one building or upgrade, to get more you must pay for it with real money. To use your queue expansion item, you can either go into your inventory and use it from there, or tap on the lock icon that appears in your queue after you start building or upgrading something. This will let direct you to a menu specifically for upgrading your queue.

Buildings List

This is a list of all buildings present in the game for quick reference. Please see the individual pages for more information on each, such as construction and upgrade cost as well as time required.

Building Types

While the game itself doesn't do this, the buildings available can be divided into several rough categories.

The Citadel
As mentioned above, no building in your empire can exceed the level of the Citadel. Upgrading it is not important for this reason alone, as the level of the Citadel also determines other things such as what buildings are unlocked and how many troops total your empire can have.

The Protectors
Protector-type buildings determine how easy it is for enemy empires to get away with your stuff. The Wall and the traps built within it stop any would-be attacker from going straight for your troops (or worse - your vulnerable resources!) and the Vault protects a certain amount of resources from being taken if your attacker does get through your empire's defenses. In addition, the Watchtower lets you find out information about what other empires are doing to you, be they friend or enemy.

Resource Production
These buildings produce various resources and other things for your empire so you can keep on building. Aside from that, their number and level also determines the max amount of resources your empire can hold before you're unable to produce more.
See more: Farm, Mine, Quarry, Energy Extractor, Bank, Gold Mine, Treasury

Troop Management
These are the various buildings related to training and upkeep of your empire's troops.
See more: Training Grounds, Barracks, Special Training Grounds, Hospital, Hospital Ward

Aside from crafting with equipment and better materials, the buildings in this category also allow you to research (or 'craft') various abilities and upgrades to boost your empire.
See more: University, Secret University, Armory, Advanced Armory

Hero Management
The various hero-related buildings give you ways to manage your own hero as well as the captured heroes of others.
See more: Hero Monument, Proving Grounds, Memorial, Prison, Banishment Portal

Diplomacy & War
These buildings enable your empire to treat with any friendly empires in your guild in various ways.
See more: Embassy, Trading Post, Guild Hall


There are requirements not only for unlocking each building in the first place, but for upgrading them as well. The basic requirement of having a Citadel at the minimum the same level as the upgrade of another building that you're going for is not listed below. If any level only requires its corresponding Citadel level, that level isn't listed.
