Take your compass, your map, and venture into the unknown, Final Fantasy XIV fans. The latest expansion, Endwalker, introduced new maps to the MMO—and there’s a lot to do in the new lands.
First, though, you might want to attune to all Aether Currents and complete the quests required to unlock flying in those maps since this will significantly decrease travel times between your numerous destinations.
Although you can find all Aether Currents using your Aether Compass, it can be faster to know exactly where they all are to optimize your travel plans.
All Aether Currents locations in Thavnair
In Thavnair, the attunement to all Aether Currents will take a while because you’ll have to go through over a dozen main scenario quests before being able to access the whole map. For this reason, it can be a good idea to do shared FATE runs to farm Gemstones and buy riding maps. This will allow you to travel faster on the ground.
Here are all the Aether Currents currently discovered in Thavnair. These are only the ones unlocked in the first half of the map, but we’ll add the other half to the list later.
Quests that unlock currents
Out of the five quests required to unlock flying, four will be given in Radz-at-Han’s main areas, close to the Aetherytes. If you don’t find them all straight away, don’t worry. Both of the last quests won’t be unlocked before a part in the scenario where you’ll reach level 89.
This one is located to the south of the Saltwing’s Welcome landmark, right under the “i” letter. It’s likely the first one you’ll unlock.
The main scenario quests will naturally lead you to this one if you know where to look. It’s located on top of the city in the northwest corner of the map, at X: 11.9, Y: 10.3, Z: 0.7.
This Aether Current can be misleading: It’s right on top of the area you won’t be able to access before a certain point in the scenario. It’s located at X:19.1, Y: 15.6, Z: 0.8.
This should be the last Aether Current you’ll unlock in the first half of the map because it’s located in the northern part, near the main city you’ll access a bit later in the main scenario. It’s located at X: 20.4, Y: 7.2, Z: 0.9.
This Aether Current can be tricky because you might think it’s hidden behind a wall you can’t cross. But you’ll only have to go around it by the seaside to reach it. It’s at X: 27.5, Y: 29.7, near the first area you’ll get to in Thavnair.
Five more currents, however, are located in the other part of Thavnair’s map that you won’t reach before level 89, so be patient before expecting to attune to them and being able to fly around.
This is the closest Aether Current you’ll see after getting access to the second part of Thavnair, at X: 19.1, Y: 15.6.
The remaining currents will be around the last Aetheryte you’ll attune to in Thavnair. This one is located at X: 32.4, Y: 18.2.
This current won’t be hard to find, at X: 22.5, Y: 25.2.
The ninth Aether Current is at X: 23.8, Y: 14.6. The last sidequests unlocking currents will naturally bring you near this one and the next.
The last Aether Current can be found at X: 23.3, Y: 12.5.
