Middle La Noscea is a location in Final Fantasy XIV.
It largely serves as a starting zone for players who begin in Limsa Lominsa.
Story[edit | edit source]
Players who begin their adventure as an arcanist or marauder will be sent here for the beginning of their Main Scenario quests. Baderon asks the novice Adventurer to help out Staelwyrn at the Summerford Farms. While performing tasks for the ex-pirate captain, they will meet Y'shtola in the Seasong Grotto, who helps them fend off an enraged goobbue. After the scuffle, the Water Crystal of Light will be found nearby.
Locations[edit | edit source]
Middle La Noscea is located directly east of Limsa Lominsa, along the coast of Galadion Bay. The zone is bordered by the De Neville and La Thagran checkpoints at the north and south end, which contain zone lines to Eastern La Noscea and Lower La Noscea respectively. The Three-Malm Bend also contains a passage to Western La Noscea, while the city-state itself is accessed by crossing the Zephyr Gate bridge.
Geographically, Middle La Noscea is divided by the Rogue, Agelyss, and Nym rivers. Though originally the landscape was relatively flat, the Calamity caused the formation of a sheer cliff along the southern bank of the Nym River, called "The Descent." Several ramps have been installed for transportation, and the thallassocracy installed a sky lift to employ balloon-crafts for transporting cargo across the cliff wall.
Aetherytes[edit | edit source]
The only Aetheryte is located at the farmstead of Summerford Farms, atop the hill. As part of an initiative to rebuild following the Calamity, many former pirates were recruited by the city-state to till the lands, a job that many seamen chafe at.
The farm is surrounded by many orchards.
