FFXIV Maps: Dzemael Darkhold

If you are looking for THE FASTEST WAY to reach the level cap with any class or job, this FFXIV Leveling Guide by Killer Guides is a definite must have! There is nothing that comes even close in regards to level of detail and overall quality.


Dzemael Darkhold is not part of the main scenario but is a Grand Company quest given by the NPC near the Grand Companies at level 41. The maximum level for this dungeon is 44 and if you are above this then you will be level synced down to 41. Other than completing the quest the main purpose for this dungeon appears to be for leveling, or obtaining better gear. The dungeon is located in Coerthas Central Highlands.

The Dzemael Darkhold was in version 1.0 and shares similar mechanics as the boss fights are the same creatures. The Amdapor Keep dungeon has three sections. We have listed the maps in order of entry.

From what I've heard the GC quest that sends you to a dungeon is different for each nation. For Ul'dah it is Darkhold followed by Amdapor but for other GCs it's different. So this is where the confusion is coming from.

There didn't appear to be a darkhold unlock at the limsa GC NPC for me, but there could be a rank requirement I guess. idk.

Hi Leik. Yeah you are right that quest also unlocks the Darkhold. There are two Darkhold quests. The other is given to you by the Grand Companies.

Likewise there are two Amdapor Keep quests. One is given by the guy in Vesper Bay after completing Aurum Vale and the other is given by the Grand Company guy after finishing his Darkhold quest.

You can do both quests at the same time. I had to run Darkhold twice because I didn't realise there were two quests at the time.

Sorry, the dungeon has a Lv44-46 requirement.

Hi, I believe the entrance quest information is incorrect, and references the 1.0 Into the Dark quest.

The 2.0 entrance quest is "Fort of Fear[/b]" start NPC [b]Carrilaut who is located in the small village south of Camp Dragonhead, "First Discasterial Observatorium of Aetherial and Astrological Phenomena" The Coerthas Central Highlands x24y28.

Please see the attached screenshot for proof.
