Here’s how to unlock Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker’s Pandaemonium raid, if you can get in

Pandaemonium raid 1

Pandaemonium raid progression works just like prior ones

If you can sign into Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker, you can start the four wings of the Pandaemonium raid. Here’s where to find the unlock.

Pandaemonium raid 2

So first up, you just need to be level 90 and have finished the main story quest. And log in, of course.

Head to Nemjiji in Old Sharlayan, at (X:9.6 Y:11.9). The NPC very close to the main Aetheryte.

From there you’ll follow the quest marker to Labyrinthos, then to The Crystarium, and back to the expansion. Once you’ve finished the easy find-and-talk questline you can queue for Asphodelos: The First Circle. Finish that and you can queue for the second wing, then the third, and fourth. The Pandaemonium raid works just like prior raids. All four wings can be done via duty finder and are meant to be streamlined enough so you can PUG them (“savage” difficulty is where a lot of the challenge lies).

After completing each confrontation, you can roll on tokens to exchange for gear, and upon finishing the final wing, you’ll earn a weekly drop that can be exchanged for weapons (unsung blade of Asphodelos) once you acquire enough. Head slots require two helm tokens, bodies need four armor tokens, hands need two gauntlet tokens, legs require four chausses tokens, greaves are two greaves tokens, and accessories just need one Ring of Asphodelos each. Again, it’s very similar to past systems.

Once you get your tokens, you can turn them in at Mylenie in Labyrinthos (X:8.3 Y:27.6) or Djole in Radz-at-Han (X:10.3 Y:9.6).

For reference, savage difficulty is scheduled to arrive on January 4.
