In order to fly in each region in Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker, you will need to find 10 Aether Currents where you can find five of them through quests. Aether Currents are the greenish magical currents that can be found floating in the air.
Since the Aether Currents can be found in a specific zone and also through quests, it may be hard for you to find the exact location and the ways to complete the quest. No worries! This post will show you all the locations that you need to visit and also the quests that you need to complete in order to find the Aether Currents. Here you go!
Here’s a List of Aether Currents Locations in Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker!
There are at least six locations that will give you 10 Aether Currents and also allow you to complete five quests. The last Aether Current in each location is awarded by the Main Scenario Quest that is usually the very last one in that zone. Certainly, you cannot fly until you have just about finished the zone completely.
In the case of looking for the Aether Currents, you can also use the Aether Compass that will tell you how close or far you’re away from the nearest Aether Currents. You can get Aether Compass by opening the Duty menu. Then, you can choose the ‘Collections’ option and set it to your hot bar from there.
It’s important to note, each Endwalker zone contains four Aether Currents that you can obtain as side quest rewards and one more current that you can obtain from doing the main scenario quests.
Let’s see all the locations that will give you Aether Currents!
Location 1: Labyrinthos Aether Currents
Early on during Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker’s main scenario quest line, you will enter Labyrinthos. However, it will be one of the last zones that you can unlock flying in with its level 80 quest requirement.
It will not be hard to find the Aether Currents in this area, but you need to carefully move between teleports, since some of the locations ask you to use an elevator until you can fly.
Here are all the Aether Current Locations in this are:
