    Fishing Leves

    FFXIV Fishing Leve

    This is a starting listing of the Fishing Leve options in FFXIV:ARR.  The (x3) listing next to the fish type details that it is a triple turn-in leve.  Some of the early leves were also triple turn in, however I failed to label them as such.

    (This is not complete.)

    Fishing Level 1 – LL, Bismark – Merlthor Gobies, Malm Kelp, Lominsan anchovies, Finger Shrimp

    Fishing Level 5 – LL, Bismark – Coral Butterfly, Sea Cucumbers (x3), Ocean Cloud, Harbor Herring (x3)

    Amdapor Keep

    Amdapor Keep

    Getting Past the Demon Wall

    Amdapor Keep is a level 50, four person instance accessed through the Duty Finder.  Completing this instance provides each player with 100 Tomes of Philosophy and 40 Tomes of Mythology.  Additionally, chests in the dungeon itself drop item-level 60 gear upgrades.  Because of this, AK is a regularly part of your weekly end-game content.

    Amdapor Keep Entrance

    The dungeon itself is moderately complex.  It features three floors, each with a different trash mechanic encounter.  The bosses themselves … Continue reading

    All Saint’s Wake – Halloween 2013 Event

    Halloween 2013 Event

    All Saint’s Wake

    The information for the 2013 Halloween event in FFXIV can be found below.  This page will be updated when more is known about the event.  During the event, all players may participate throughout all major cities, all content is the same across each.

    You can find the event NPCs for the Halloween Event in the center of town, in front of the adventures guild in Ul’Dah.  The quest NPC, Shifty Thespian, offers a quest “Not-so-Evil Dead” during the hours of 18:00-6:00 Eorzea Time.

    Note:  These quests grant Experience.  You should … Continue reading

    The Wanderer’s Palace

    The Wanderer’s Palace

    Dodging Tonberry’s Left and Right

    The Wanderer’s Palace is the easier of the two four-person instances that comprise the relaunch end-game for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.  This instance pays out Tomes of Mythology, Tpmes of Philosophy, item-level 55 gear, and most-importantly damaged weapons that serve as precursors for the Relic Weapon quest.  The damaged weapons must be reforged by player crafters and these finished items can be worth substantial amounts of gil on the player marketplace.

    The Wanderer’s Palace features a number of large, dangerous Tonberry’s.  These are slow moving monsters … Continue reading

    The Praetorium

    The Praetorium

    The end of the FFXIV relaunch story

    The Praetorium is a level 50, 8-person instance.  This is the story instance that sets up the final conflict for FFXIV launch content.  Additionally, this instance rewards 100 Tomes of Philosophy upon completion, making it reasonably frequently travelled by higher-geared level 50’s.  This instance is entered through the Duty Finder and becomes available after completing Castrum Meridianum and its followup story quests.

    The Praetorium

    The Duty Finder will build a balanced team of 2-tanks, 2-healers, and 4-dps … Continue reading
