Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Guide: Aether Currents (The Azim Steppe)


One of the best additions to Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward was flying mounts. Actually getting around was made significantly easier, especially considering how multi-layered most of the maps were. This continues with Stormblood as being able to fly across the map will save countless hours off any player’s play time.

These are locked behind Aether Currents, which players simply need to find and attune. Unfortunately, these are scattered all across each area, so you’ll need to keep your eyes open… or you could just find them here. We have collected a full list of locations for each Aether Current in all of the Stormblood areas, with maps and screenshots to better help you out. Some can be tricky, so we’ll try to better inform you where exactly you’ll need to go.

Note: You will need to complete five Aether-related quests outside of the ten you need to attune. It’s based on how far you are in the area’s story, so keep an eye on the map after story missions to find featured icons (ones with + on the bottom left of the icon).

This is a large open area like Final Fantasy X’s Calm Lands. The only notable Aether Currents are 1, 3, 5, 6 and 10. For the first one, it’s easy to overlook as it’s down in the river next to the village. You will need to climb the path to the left of 3 and drop down onto a ledge to pick this one up, avoiding a couple of angry enemies. 5 is just hidden in the river running through the hill, 6 is located within a cavern, and 10 is later in the story when you get up on the settlement.
