  • Relaunch the queue immediately after experiencing the error. This will often let you keep your place in line.

  • Restart the Final Fantasy XIV application should the problem persist.
  • Ensure your PC’s firewall isn’t blocking the FF XIV Launcher, as this can cause this error to happen indefinitely.

Many of Final Fantasy XIV’s errors, including error 90006, are primarily due to the unprecedented stress on the game’s servers. Unfortunately, these errors will remain consistent until more permanent fixes come from Square Enix.
