Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker

All Aether Currents in Thavnair

By
Claire Farnworth

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).

On a little outcrop overlooking the beach at Thavnair 17.9, Y: 32.2, Z: 0.2 you will see the aether current.

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.

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.

(1 of 2) Look to the center of the pond

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.

(1 of 2) Run round the side to get a good view of this one.

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.

(1 of 2) Run round the south side of the Font.
