The North Shroud.

North Shroud is a location in Final Fantasy XIV.

Part of it serves as a starting zone for players who begin in Gridania.



The North Shroud is situated in the northwestern reaches of the Black Shroud, just west of Gridania proper.

This zone connects to Central Shroud through Alder Springs in the south, and to the Coerthas Central Highlands far in the west. The Yellow Serpent Gate connects to Old Gridania.


Fallgourd Float.

The only Aetheryte is located at Fallgourd Float, roughly at the center of the map.


Central Shroud contains the following areas:

  • Treespeak - Low level area in the east, next to Gridania.
  • Peacegarden – Northeastern section.
  • Alder springs – A rugged area to the west devoid of living trees.
  • Proud Creek - Northern section with high-level enemies.



A hamlet tucked away in Peacegarden.

North Shroud's climate may exhibit any of the following weather conditions:

  • Clear Skies
  • Sunshine
  • Fog
  • Overcast
  • Rain
  • Showers
  • Tension (only when Odin is roaming the Black Shroud)

Places of onterest

Gelmorra Ruins

Finder's Bluff

The Fallen Neurolink

This colossal Allagan device fell from Dalamud when it broke apart as Bahamut broke free of his bindings. Measuring hundreds of yalms across, this was one of five such restraints used on the Elder Primal, and now remains permanently embedded in the Black Shroud's landscape.

Ixali Logging Grounds

Situated on the shore of Lake Tahtotl, the Ixal continually take lumber from the outskirts of the Black Shroud (and certainly without permission). The lumber is eventually transported via balloncraft to their homeland in the mountains.
