La Noscea ARR 08

The Grey Fleet of Lower La Noscea.

Lower La Noscea is a location in Final Fantasy XIV.

It largely serves as a starting zone for players who begin in Limsa Lominsa.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

Players who begin their adventure as an arcanist or marauder will eventually be sent here to help at Moraby Drydocks. They will be instrumental in saving the Lominsan flagship Victory from sabotage by the Serpent Reavers.

During Through the Maelstrom, the drydocks are used to construct the Whorleater, a special barge intended to combat the primal Leviathan.

Spoilers end here.


Lower La Noscea is at the very southern end of Vylbrand. The area was greatly sundered by the Calamity, cutting off much of the Gods Grip from the rest of the island. A bridge called Oschon's Embrace was swiftly constructed since then to restore infrastructure.

This zone connects to Eastern La Noscea in the north, and to Middle La Noscea through Blind Iron Mines. Ferry services at Candlekeep Quay travel to Aleport in Western La Noscea. The city-state itself is accessed through the Tempest Gate, while the residential district Mist is located next to Red Rooster Stead.


FFXIV Moraby Drydocks

Moraby Drydocks.

The only Aetheryte is located at Moraby Drydocks, located at the southern end.

Players seeking quick access to the northern sections would be better suited teleporting to Limsa Lominsa and using the aethernet to leave through the Tempest Gate.


Lower La Noscea contains the following areas:

  • Moraby Bay – Located near the Tempest Gate.
  • Cedarwood – An extensive farmland region in the north.
  • Gods' Grip – The peninsula in the southern region.


Red Rooster SteadEdit

A homestead on a small hill near the Cedarwood farmlands, just east of Limsa Lominsa in the Lower La Noscea zone. It is located outside the entrance to The Mist residential district.

Candlekeep QuayEdit

A small dock in the Gods' Grip area. Ferry services regularly travel between here and Aleport.

Moraby DrydocksEdit

The official shipyards of Limsa Lominsa, it was spared the worst of the Calamity thanks to geography of Gods's Grip. The shipyards have since been hard at work in designing a new flagship Victory to bolster the city-state's morale.


Lower La Noscea's temperate climate may exhibit any of the following weather conditions:

  • Clear Skies
  • Sunshine
  • Fog
  • Overcast
  • Rain
  • Wind
