Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers 5.4 patch notes
The upcoming Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers 5.4 patch will have the largest amount of content to date. This includes the continuation of the main story quest, the finale of the Eden raids, and the appearance of the Emerald Weapon.
The patch 5.4 Main Scenario can be started in Mor Dhona after completing the 5.3 storylines in Final Fantasy 14.
There are ten Main Scenario quests total in Final Fantasy 14 patch 5.4, and you’ll unlock the new dungeon along the way. Completing the new Main Scenario should take you roughly 3-5 hours, though expect that playtime to expand if you watch all the cutscenes.
Like all previous Main Scenario quests, you will first need to clear the previous chapter to progress to the next. That means wrapping up whatever Main Scenario quests you have leftover from Final Fantasy 14 patch 5.3 before taking on the new quests in patch 5.4. If you are level 80, but have not finished the Shadowbringers launch campaign then you’ll need to that first, then all the subsequent Main Scenario quests.
To unlock the first series of Eden raid, Eden’s Gate, you need to travel to the Crystarium and speak to the Anxious Guard. The quest will be titled “In the Middle of Nowhere.” In order to access this series of raids, you will need to complete the Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers 5.0 main story quest titled “Shadowbringers”.
You can unlock the second Eden raid, Eden’s Verse, by completing Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers 5.2 main scenario quests which end with the quest “Echoes of a Fallen Star” and by completing the first set of Eden raids. Once you have completed those series of quests, you can then travel to Amh Araeng to speak with Yalfort. That quest will be called “Away with the Faerie.”
Once you’re all caught up return to Amh Araeng and speak with Yalfort to begin the quest-chain that unlocks Eden’s Promise. To unlock Savage you’ll first need to clear the Normal version of the raid and the quest-chain. Remember, you only get one piece of equipment per boss a week, so don’t roll with abandon. Eden’s Promise uses the same token-based system as the previous two tiers, so be sure to have a wishlist at the ready to avoid wasting rolls.
It is suggested that you continue further and unlock the Bojzan Frontline series of quests, just to get ahead for patch 5.45 where the Save the Queen Relic Weapon will continue. This also provides players with another avenue to level their jobs outside of leveling roulettes. As long as a job is level 71, players can enter the frontline to level that specific job and test out all obtainable skills.
To access the Emerald Weapon encounter, players will need to continue “The Sorrow of Werlyt” questline. To begin the questline, players must have completed the main story quest “Old Enemies, New Threats.” From there you can then head to The Lochs and speak to the Resistance Officer to pick up the quest “Ruby Doomsday.” After completing Ruby Doomsday, you will then have access to “Sleep Now in Sapphire.”
Final Fantasy XIV is immediately available for PlayStation 4 and PC. The Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers 5.4 patch will arrive on December 8, 2020.
