Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood Guide: Aether Currents (Yanxia)


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).

After The Ruby Sea, you’ll head to Yanxia, a smaller, more controlled little location. This is one of the easier ones to get all the Aether Currents considering it’s dense and all located within the southern part of the map. 2 and 3 are the only ones to look out for as they’re on elevated platforms, otherwise you’ll have no trouble with the rest.
