This page will show you where to find every Aether Current in the Thavnair area of the Endwalker expansion in Final Fantasy XIV. In order to unlock flying in Thavnair, you will once again need to find all the Aether Currents in the area, some of which require you to complete certain quests in order to gain that Aether Current.
You can access 5 world aether currents and 2 quest aether currents on your first visits to Thavnair. The rest won’t be unlocked until a fair bit later in the Main Scenario once you gain access to the second half of the map.
World Aether Currents
These aether currents can be found on the overworld map in Thavnair.
1. River East of Yedlihmad
From Yedlihmad, head east until you see a shallow river. The aether current is found nestled in a stony outcrop at the north edge of the river in front of a fallen log (Thavnair X: 27.5, Y: 30.9, Z: 0.0).
2. Saltwind’s Welcome Near Akyaali
On a little outcrop overlooking the beach at Thavnair 17.9, Y: 32.2, Z: 0.2 you will see the aether current.
3. Perfumed Rise
Climb to the top of the Perfumed Rise to find the aether current at Thavnair X: 19.1, Y: 15.7, Z: 0.8 looking out towards the colorful city of Radz-at-Han.
4. Hamsa Hatchery
When you reach the Hatchery, look inside a ruined building for the aether current.
5. Giantsgall Grounds
This aether current is found across a pool of water on a ledge at the Giantsgall Grounds. To access the ledge, look for the wooden ramp with the Sramul NPC nearby. Run up the ramp and turn east to drop down on to the ledge with the aether current.
6. Pavana’s Remorse
After you begin the Main Scenario Quest Beyond the Depths of Despair you can finally access the other part of the map in Thavnair. Head over to the pond at Pavana’s Remorse (X: 23.9 Y: 14.6 Z: 0.0) where you will find the first current of this new area.
7. Shroud of Samgha north of Pavana’s Remorse
From the last aether current, head directly north until you spy a rock formation with the aether current sitting proudly on top at X: 23.3, Y: 12.4, Z: 0.3.
8. South East of Palaka’s Stand
After reaching Palaka’s Stand, head south east where the aether current can be found on top of another rock formation at X: 32.5, Y: 18.2, Z: 0.2 though this one is initially concealed from view until you move nearer.
9. The Font of Maya
In the far south west of this section of the map lies the Font of Maya and your next aether current. You might be forgiven for thinking the aether current resides at the center of the Font but you can actually find it just behind the statues to the south at X: 22.5, Y: 25.2, Z: 0.1.
10. Near Night’s Watch
Head south east from the Font of Maya towards the Night’s Watch. The final world aether current is found in a little nook by a fallen tree at X: 27.3, Y: 29.9, Z: 0.0.
