Endwalker Guides Hub for FFXIV
This is the main hub for the latest expansion to FFXIV, Endwalker. Here, we will present information on the expansion, as well as links to our guides and overviews of new features and changes.
Endwalker: Overview of the latest Final Fantasy XIV Expansion
Final Fantasy XIV's fourth and most ambitious expansion to date, Endwalker, is set to release December 7, 2021, with Early Access launching December 3, 2021. Players will be able to challenge new foes, play new jobs, visit new zones, and see the thrilling conclusion of the Hydaelyn vs. Zodiark story arc that has been the centerpiece of FFXIV's acclaimed story for the past decade.
All the information about Endwalker can be found on our hub, as well as all Endwalker-related pages and guides Icy Veins has to offer.
Changes to FFXIV in Patch 6.0
Massive system changes are coming with Patch 6.0 in Endwalker, including the downscaling of values, the removal of belts, and new jobs. To learn more, visit our Endwalker changes hub, where we detail all of the changes that the developers have stated are coming in the expansion.
New Jobs in Endwalker
Two new jobs are coming with Patch 6.0: Reaper, a melee DPS that taps into the void to unleash devastating attacks with a scythe on enemies alongside a voidsent avatar, and Sage, a barrier healer that heals and protects allies by manipulating corporeal aether with nouliths, a flying array of foci.
These jobs will start at level 70. Reaper will be unlocked in Ul'Dah, and Sage will be unlocked in Limsa Lominsa. We have written comprehensive guides on how to play the two new jobs, and they will be released once the expansion is live, so stay tuned!
Changes to Existing Jobs in Endwalker
Existing jobs will also get new actions, changes, and even reworks! Of note is the complete Summoner rework, which will allow Summoners to channel the true power of Ifrit, Titan, and Garuda. Monk will also see some much-needed changes, with the new Masterful Blitz system keeping them on their toes. Learn more about all the changes and new abilities coming in Endwalker in each job's respective job change pages.
Crafting & Gathering in Endwalker
Disciples of the Hand and Land will also obtain new actions and receive changes in Endwalker. The most notable change is the removal of obtainable HQ items, greatly affecting the dynamic between the gatherers and crafters. Learn more about these changes on our Crafting and Gathering changes page.
New Duties in Endwalker
Several new duties will be released in Endwalker with Patch 6.0. If the pattern from previous expansions holds true, there will be a total of five leveling dungeons, three dungeons at level cap, three normal difficulty trials, and two Extreme trials. Patch 6.01 and 6.05 will release the Normal and Savage raids, respectively.
New Dungeons in Endwalker
New leveling and expert dungeons will be released in Endwalker with Patch 6.0. Each dungeon will have new environments, gear, and enemies to defeat. The first dungeon, The Tower of Zot, was revealed at the Media Tour. Learn more about the new dungeons in Endwalker on our dungeon hub.
New Trials in Endwalker
In Endwalker, players will have to defeat the three normal trials as part of the main scenario before challenging the two Extreme trials after completing the main scenario. For written tips and guides on the trials in Endwalker, visit our trials hub!
New Raids in Endwalker
The Normal difficulty of the first tier of the Pandaemonium Raid, Asphodelos, was released during Patch 6.01 on December 21, 2021.

New Zones in Endwalker
Several new zones will be coming in the Endwalker expansion in Patch 6.0. Each zone will have unique environments, FATEs, quests, and activities for players, including hunts and eventually beast tribe reputation quests. Players will have to unlock flying in each new zone. Learn more about the new zones below.
Unlocking Flight in Endwalker Zones
Just like any other zone after A Realm Reborn, players can unlock flight by collecting all the Aether Currents in a specific area. Aether Currents can be found on the overworld and are rewarded from certain quests. Learn more about how to unlock flight in all the new zones in our Endwalker flight guide.
New Hunts will be introduced in Endwalker, with Daily Hunts as well as Elite Marks with unique spawn conditions. These will be a great source of new materia and tomestones! You can find out more about the new hunts after Endwalker goes live from our Endwalker Hunts page.
Endwalker Beast Tribes
Two new beast tribes will be coming in Endwalker, although both will be released at a later date. Learn more about the new Endwalker Beast Tribes on our dedicated page.
Endwalker Player Hubs
In addition to all the overworld zones, two new player hubs will be available in Endwalker. Old Sharlayan will be one of the first destinations in Endwalker and will serve as the main city hub, while Radz-at-Han will be the primary endgame hub.
Leveling in Endwalker
Players will have to level new and existing jobs to the increased cap of level 90 in Endwalker. To learn about how to level Disciple of War and Magic jobs, visit our Endwalker leveling guide.
Gearing in Endwalker
As FFXIV is a vertical progression MMO, new and improved gear can be acquired in the expansion. Learn more about how to gear up from our Endwalker gearing guide! You can also find best-in-slot gear lists on each of our job guides!
