FATE in beta

FATEs or Full Active Time Events are dynamic scenarios, often battles, that appear around Eorzea. FATEs involve boss battles, escort missions and other events. Players can complete these events for experience, gil and Grand Company seals. Occasionally players will also receive items for successful completion of a FATE at gold medal. FATE credit is shared amongst all members of a party. Group up for better chances at maximum credit.

List of FATEs

Shared FATEs


To locate a FATE, look for FATE indicators that randomly appear on your map. To join a FATE, simply enter the FATE radius (blue circle) on your mini map and attempt to complete the FATE objectives. There are no limits to the number of players that can participate in a FATE at a time. If the player's level is too high, they will be asked to level sync down. FATEs can be completed by finishing the on-screen objectives within the time limit. Players are rewarded with experience and gil when a FATE is completed.

Types of FATEs

Kill Enemies Slay enemy FATE icon.png

Monster FATES require the players to defeat waves and waves of monsters. On your map, they show up as icons with two crossed swords. Players can increase their rating by tagging or first hitting monsters, doing damage to the monsters and healing and reviving other players. To obtain participation for a monster slain, players need to get on the aggro table (pops up on the left) for that monster when it is slain.

  • Easiest way to achieve Gold Medal rating is by tagging monsters with instant cast spells, damage them with AoE abilities, gaining enmity for multiple mobs and healing players with high enmity.

Kill Boss Boss FATE icon.png

Boss FATEs require the players to defeat one large and powerful boss monster. On your map, they show up as icons with monster maw. Players can increase their rating by doing damage to the boss, tanking hits from the boss and healing other players.

Collect Collection FATE icon.png

Collect FATEs require the players to collect and turn in special items. On your map, they show up as bag icons along with a small bag that indicate the location of the FATE NPC. Players can increase their rating by turning in collectibles before the timer hits 0.

  • Players can easily obtain the Gold Medal rating by picking up the FATE items on the ground and handing them to the FATE NPC.

Defend Defense FATE icon.png

In these FATEs, players have to defend certain objects from destruction for a specified amount of time. Waves of enemies will attempt to destroy these objects and players must defeat these foes. If the objects are destroyed, players fail the FATE.

Escort Escort FATE icon.png

In these FATEs, players need to escort an NPC or multiple NPCs from one place to another. The NPC will travel from point A to point B, players must defend her from incoming monsters. If the NPC is killed, players fail the FATE.

  • Note that the HP of NPCs will regenerate outside of combat.

Hot Spots

Players occasionally group up and farm FATEs for experience. Generally this is done while waiting on queues or while simultaneously working on various Relic Weapons. Experience per hour is quite poor from FATEs alone.
Various FATE spots emerge for different levels.

Tips and Tricks

  • Players do not need to stick around for the entire FATE. If you feel comfortable that you have done enough to receive full exp for the fate, you can leave early to join another FATE that may have popped. For Collect FATEs this is typically 6-8 of the items.
    • You must be in the same zone as the FATE when it ends to receive any credit, however. Going into a queue or leaving for another zone will forfeit any contribution.
  • Make sure to join a party. Often if you shout in an area that you are "looking for group" someone will pick you up. You can also use the Party Finder.
  • By being in a party, you will not only increase your likelihood of getting the Gold Medal for FATE completion, but also allows you to share everyone's experience as monsters are killed.
  • Tanks having trouble getting Gold Medal for FATE completion should spam their AOE.
  • Healers having trouble receiving high ranking FATE completion can spam Aero or Bio and tag as many mobs as possible.
