Aether Currents

From Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

Aether Currents are required to unlock the ability to fly on mounts. Each zone released in Heavensward (3.0) and Stormblood (4.0) has 15 Aether Currents (with the exception of Azys Lla, which only has 5). Players are required to attune to all 15 Aether Currents to unlock flying in that zone. Some Aether Currents are found scattered throughout the zone, others are rewarded by completing Main Scenario Quests and Side Quests. Aether Currents in the field look like greenish blobs of wind, players can right click on them to attune. Players can check their attunement progress through the Aether Currents window under Travel in the Main Menu.

Unlock

Aether Currents are unlocked after completing the 3.0 Main Scenario Quest Divine Intervention. The same quest that awards the player the Black Chocobo and Aether Compass.

Aether Compass

The Aether Compass gives you the bearing and distance to the nearest Aether Current upon use. It is used to locate Aether Currents in the field and can be found in your Key Items tab of your inventory. If you lose it you can talk to Gibrillont at the Forgotten Knight in Ishgard or Gaufrid (x14.3, y9.6) in Rhalgr's Reach to get another.

You can favourite this item to your hotbar to make it easier to access.
