Final Fantasy 14 is one of the most popular MMOs out there, and it just so happens to also be a JRPG. The game released its expansion, Dawntrail, in the summer of 2024, and with that expansion comes a whole host of new things (such as new areas, all new main missions, and so much more).

While many things were added (like some amazing characters), the expansion also changed some things, one of which is the location of the Aether Compass, a vital part of the game. The location has been moved again, and thankfully, it isn’t too difficult to find. Here’s a guide to help players out.

What Is The Aether Compass In FF14?

Finding Aether Currents in Dawntrail from Final Fantasy 14

The Aether Compass is required for finding the Aether Currents in each Dawntrail zone. Considering finding all of them in each zone is the only way to unlock flying, players are going to need to find them all quickly if they want to make the expansion easier, which is where the Aether Compass comes in. In order to find Aether Currents, players will need to access the Aether Compass and read the text that flashes across the screen. That text will tell the player where the closest Aether Current is, slowly allowing them to unlock flying in the expansion.

Inside the Collection Menu, players will now find their Aether Compass. From there, they just need to click on it to use it.
