Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers Guide: Aether Currents (Il Mheg)


While the release of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers is technically next week, its early access pre-order incentive allows players to play the game the weekend prior. With its release, we’ve been grinding through it, and of course we’re going to show you where you can get all the Aether Currents.

Aether Currents are simply floating green indicators spread across each area that you need to atune by simply touching them. Collecting all ten ones spread across the area and doing a number of blue-indicated side quests, players will unlock the ability to use flying mounts in the area.

While we won’t show you where to find the quests to unlock the side-quest centric currents, mainly because they are easily to locate, we will show you the exact locations of each aether current blow. Unlike Stormblood and Heavensward, some of the areas you’ll be able to fly before completing the key mission that moves you along to the next section of Shadowbringers. With Il Mheg, though, you will need to defeat the final boss of the area to obtain access of flight.
