Deep in the Glass Ocean, the great expanse of the Far East, lies an island recorded on no navigational charts. An island that seemingly appeared one day–an island that should not be. Recognizing its potential as a trading post, the brave and ambitious ventured forth to explore and claim it, only to discover an untamed land teeming with strange, monstrous beasts...

Anemos Elementals

Anemos Elemental possible locations

Anemos Elementals are a type of Eureka Elemental, which are passive NPCs that can spawn in fixed locations throughout the map and provide buffs to nearby players. For more information on Eureka Elementals, see here.

Eureka Anemos FATEs

Powerful enemies, known as Notorious Monsters (NMs), will spawn upon defeating enough of certain enemies. These function similarly to boss FATEs. Upon spawning, each NM has a cooldown of 2 hours (real life time) before it can be spawned again. Players can track NMs in a given instance using the Eureka Tracker website and by sharing a given tracker link to other players in the instance.

In the following table, the listed rewards assume that the player has achieved the maximum (gold) ranking and has an elemental level that is at least one below the NM level. Otherwise, they will receive reduced rewards.

Players will usually specify a pull time (PT) to ensure that people in the instance can participate in the NM and receive rewards. This may either be in Eorzea Time or when there is a certain number of minutes remaining in the FATE timer, e.g., "PT 27" is commonly used, meaning begin fighting the boss when there is 27:00 left.
