You’ve gotten to the end of Shadowbringers, and it’s time to make some strong weapons. Where Eagles Nest is the speed bump on your way to the endgame dungeons and weapons that FFXIV Shadowbringers has brought to the table in Patch 5.35. However, this is an annoying quest to find! If you’ve gotten lost trying to get this really important quest… Trust me, you’re far from alone! Learn what you need to do with our Where Eagles Nest FFXIV.
Prerequisite Quests for Where Eagles Nest FFXIV
In order to even begin Where Eagles Nest, you need to complete three entirely different quests. This is basically just preparation for battle, so you’re chatting with some allies… A ton of allies.
- The Bozja Incident: Wondering why you haven’t quite unlocked the Resistance storyline? This is probably why. Help Cid’s memory by going to Rhalgr’s Reach’s Plaza (x 11.8, y 11.9) after completing the Path to the Past quest. Then, start helping Cid out! You will have to be ready for combat… A lot of combat.
- Fire in the Forge: This quest gets you the resistance weapon. Get it from Gerolt in Gangros (6.3, 5.1), but only after you completed the Bozja Incident.
- Vows of Virtue, Deeds of Cruelty: Helping Alphinaud might as well be the subtitle of this game. After you complete the Story Quest “Moving Forwards”, you can help Alphinaud out at Eulmore (11.8, 11.7).
Once you have completed two side quests and one main story quest, you’re finally ready for Where Eagles Nest. Thankfully, this is just a short, talk-to-people quest to get some story down.

Thanks to patch 5.35, this is an important series of quests to get under your belt. Resistance Weapons are way better than they have been, and are now a reasonable raid weapon to bring to the endgame. Good luck, warriors of darkness!
