Current Dawntrail Aether locations in FFXIV


WITH Ultimate Fantasy 14‘S Dawn Trail the expansion is bigger ether currents for players to find. These elusive collectibles are scattered across the map and you must find them all to unlock flying in their respective zones.

Considering there are 60 aether currents in total, finding them can seem like quite a challenge, but we’re here to assist.

FFXIV Aether Currents Explained

As usual, to unlock flying in each up-to-date zone you will have to find and cooperate with 10 Aether Currents and complete five tasksThe four side quests required for Aether Currents are marked with a regular blue quest marker with a plus sign, while the fifth current quest is a reward for completing one of the main scenario quests in that area (usually at the end of your stay in an area).

You can usually employ your Aether Compass in your key items to find out how many yalms away the nearest current is. If you don’t want to bother with that, you can just employ our maps to find it quickly and easily. You can still find your Aether Compass in the “collections” menu, under the “duty” tab, if you want to find currents like Yoshi-P intended.

We are writing out Dawn Trail zones, in the order in which they can be encountered, although due to divergent paths, some of them, such as Kozama’uka and Urqopacha, can be used interchangeably.

Below are our ether currents in the order they appear in the ether current menu from left to rightthat way, if something is missing, you’ll know what you need without having to employ the Aether Compass. That said, we don’t recommend grabbing them in the order they’re numbered, but rather grabbing whatever’s closest to you as you adventure through these up-to-date maps.

Kozama’uka Aether Current Locations

Keep in mind that you’ll only be able to get half of these currents on your first visit to Kozama’uka. You’ll get the other five when you return here to the southern half of the map later.
