FFXIV News - Unlocking the Dungeons & Primals!

There seems to be a lot of questions regarding how to gain access to the various dungeons and primals within FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. So here is a post explaining how it all fits together.

Most of the dungeons are unlocked via main scenario quests at the level which is the minimum for that dungeon, while others are unlocked via side quests. If a dungeon isn't unlocked then you can not enter it even if others in your party can.

The list below contains the dungeon name, the level requirement, how to unlock and the location of the dungeon.

After you complete The Praetorium you gain access to the hard versions of the primals:

Ifrit508Quest in Waking Sands After The PraetoriumThe Bowl of Embers
Garuda508Quest in Waking Sands After IfritThe Howling Eye
Titan508Quest in Waking Sands After GarudaThe Naval

Upon beating Titan you can then gain access to The Great Labyrinth of Bahamut.

While on the subject of dungeons we really want to list the dungeon drops on their respective pages so that you know where to look for loot. Compiling the drop lists is challenging however and the SE database may get there first. The dungeon maps also need to be added, the reason they haven't yet is I have yet to reach them on the main scenario. As you know the maps on here are screenshots rather than dat mined. I am trying to strike a balance between updating the site and playing.
