Final Fantasy Wiki

I remember the silence. How the talking stopped when we first set foot on the plains of Yanxia. Before us stood yet another wall, and through a great magitek field we glimpsed Doma Castle. I'll never forget the sight...or the anger I felt that day. Life. Liberty. Hope. So much lost, so much taken. As we walked through that war-torn land, no one said a word...

Yanxia is a location in Othard introduced in Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood.


Through Yanxia flows the One River, upon whose shores the kingdom of Doma has been built. Having fallen to Garlean rule, the nation's once proud and mighty Doma Castle is now occupied by the imperial viceroy and her host of brutish men. Citizens here struggle to eke out a living in the face of oppression, which comes in the form of punishing taxes and grueling physical labor.



There are aetherytes located in Namai and the House of the Fierce.


  • The Heron's Way
  • The Gensui Chain
  • The Glittering Basin
  • The One River
  • Valley of the Fallen Rainbow
  • Doma - Beyond the Moon Gates lies the city-state of Doma, or rather, what is left of it after years of Imperial rule and a failed rebellion. Though the Domans have reclaimed their home, much of it remains in ruins, the great castle that was it's center-piece included, however the city-state's commercial enclave has been restored, and many refugees are slowly finding their way back.



One of the many small villages that exist in Yanxia.

The House of the Fierce[]

The Headquarters of the Doman Resistance, and later, its army.

Yuzuka Manor[]

The Dairyu Moon Gates[]

These colossal structures bound Doma to the east and the south. The Garleans added their own 'improvements' to them, magitek generators that form an impassable barrier for all except who they allow in.

The Swallow's Compass[]

The tomb of Gannen, first king of Doma, and a master geomancer.


Once the residential district for Doma's nobles, it was razed to the ground by the Empire following the rebellion's failure. Now naught remains but automata and geomancy familiars.



Doma Castle.

Doma Castle Doma Castle
Level 67
Item Level 255
Mercantile Docks (x14 y14)

To win a war, one must be willing to do whatever is required, even if it means sacrificing the very thing one set out to reclaim. And thus did Lord Hien declare that Doma Castle should be flooded, to eliminate the greater portion of the imperial garrison and trap Yotsuyu within the keep. Your allies have set the stage, and now you must play your part─as well as the wandering adventurers whom you have recruited to fight for Doma's liberation. The fate of a nation shall be decided this day─marshal your forces and venture unto the flooded fortress!

The Swallow's Compass (x11 y26)

Chiseled into the great wall which cuts across the plains of Yanxia, between two of the Dairyu Moon Gates, is the visage of Ganen, the legendary hero who united Doma. The first king of the new kingdom was not only a military genius, but also the founder of geomancy, and so after his death this royal mausoleum became a holy place to which his disciples would make pilgrimage. Alas, following the imperial invasion, it was abandoned and fell into disrepair, and none can say for certain what dangers lie within. Regardless, if Soroban's rigorous training under Genbu is to continue, you and your comrades must venture into these hallowed halls and obtain the tamate-bako of geomancy, an ancient relic with the power to manipulate time itself...
The Burn.

The Burn The Burn
Level 70
Item Level 340
Valley of the Fallen Rainbow (x28 y10)

En route to Garlemald, Alphinaud made a final linkpearl call to Thancred before falling silent. During the one-sided and distorted communication, he is said to have spoken the words “The Burn”—the name of the vast wasteland on the western edge of Othard. Once a verdant region teeming with flora and fauna, repeated summonings saw it bled of aether and reduced to a barren desert. But even in an unforgiving environment such as this, life has endured. In a fierce struggle for what little aether yet remains, the Burn's beastly denizens have grown uncommonly savage, and you and your comrades must contend with their dangerous ilk as you scour its white sands for Alphinaud's trail.
The Jade Stoa.

Level 70
Item level 325
Valley of the Fallen Rainbow (x31 y6)

At the heart of every auspice is a duality: the aramitama, the primal rage; and the nigimitama, the boundless calm. Byakko of the Four Lords is on the verge of being consumed by his aramitama, and should this come to pass, he will forever be no more than a feral beast. And so it falls to you and yours to face the legendary auspice in battle─to quell the madness within and save his soul!
Castrum Fluminis.

Castrum Fluminis via the Glittering Basin (x26 y36) during The Primary Agreement The Primary Agreement

A Kojin relic. A hidden trove of crystals. Through these tools of ritual summoning, the restored Yotsuyu is reborn as Tsukuyomi─divinity of night and lady of the moon. This being of celestial majesty would rule from on high, and drown the lands of Doma in eternal darkness. Will your light shield Hien and his people, or will it flicker and fail before the encroaching abyss?
The Jade Stoa (Extreme).

Level 70
Item level 340
Valley of the Fallen Rainbow (x31 y6)

A devoted student of the fine arts, the wandering minstrel has recently begun studying a form of classical Hingan poetry. Duly inspired by your account of the battle for Byakko's soul, he tries his hand at one such "tanka", seeking to capture the essence of who the auspice truly is. Even absent music, his words nevertheless have a hypnotic feeling, and you find it rather easy to recall the encounter, albeit in a more dramatic fashion...

Spawn conditions (if any)
Battle FATE. Freedom Flies 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x12 y29) 15 minutes Defeat the Koshu onmyoji.
Kinko is hotly pursued by several unsavory characters, and fears she will be unable to make it to safety on her own. If only some brave soul would see the roads safe once more.

Spawn conditions:

  • Speak with Kinko.
Defense FATE. A Tisket, a Tasket 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x17 y31) 15 minutes Protect the fish baskets from the koja.
A humble Namazu by the name of Gyogun has returned home with a catch that will feed his family for days. Unfortunately, the aroma has garnered the attention of a pack of starving koja intent on turning Gyogun's pain into their gain. Protect Gyogun's full-to-bursting baskets so that his spawn need not go hungry tonight.

Spawn conditions:

  • Speak with Gyogun of the Most Bountiful Catch.
Defense FATE. A Fish to Fry 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x17 y31) 15 minutes Protect the fish baskets from the Namazu sneakthieves.
Not a moment after Gyogun's daring escape from the koja's prying paws is the poor Namazu surrounded by a school of his tribe's most rotten─the thugs intent on claiming the catch for their own. Gyogun's full-to-bursting baskets are once again in need of protecting, lest his spawn suffer the night with empty bellies.

Spawn conditions:

Boss FATE. Falling Drown 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x17 y31) 15 minutes Defeat Gyogun of the Most Bountiful Catch.
The day's events have transformed the mild-mannered Gyogun into a quivering mass of uncontrollable rage. If left to his own devices, the Namazu will most certainly cause unintended harm to others, if not himself. Attempts at rational discussion have been met with baleful stares and low growling. It appears the only way to soothe the savage fish may be through a few well-placed wallops to the head.

Spawn conditions:

Battle FATE. Stay of Eggsecution 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x25 y25) 15 minutes Defeat the bi fang.
A murder of violent bi fang have alighted amidst hornbill nesting grounds, sending the already excited cloudkin into a frenzy for fear that their nests will be seized and their eggs stolen. Join the hornbills in driving off the invaders and protecting their unborn young.
Boss FATE. Get Ready for a Nu Wave 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x25 y25) 15 minutes Defeat Nu Wa.
The bi fang driven back to the mountains, the hornbills returned to their nests content...until through the quiet fields of rice they saw slither a serpent with eyes like rubies and a mouth like a dying sun. Nu Wa─bane of the Gensui Chain─had come for its favorite prey: eggs.

Spawn conditions:

Battle FATE. Deep Red Sea 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x32 y30) 15 minutes Defeat the sharks out of water.
In search of prey, flying sharks native to the Ruby Sea have swum upstream into the brackish mouth of the One River to feed on anything and everything that might call the delta home─including those fish already caught in local Doman fishers' nets.
Boss FATE. To Catch a Weasel 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x33 y29) 15 minutes Defeat Fuchikari.
While the term “weasel” conjures images of small, scrawny rodents, Doman weasels are anything but small or scrawny. In addition, the massive beastkin have a remarkably acute sense of smell, and can detect the scent of blood from over a malm distant. Drawn by your slaughter of the flying sharks, the wickedest of weasels─Fuchikari─has descended to the One River and threatens to wreak utter havoc.

Spawn conditions:

Battle FATE. Footing the Bills 64-68 The Gensui Chain (x38 y15) 15 minutes Defeat the river hornbills.
River hornbills, while mostly harmless, can prove quite testy come mating season─males unable to find mates giving to frequent bouts of violence against any man or animal unfortunate enough to be nearby. For the residents of quiet Namai, it is during this time that their little corner of heaven cut from the Gensui Chain turns into hell.
Battle FATE. Tiger Need 64-68 Unseen Spirits Laughing (x38 y20) 15 minutes Defeat the Yanxian tigers.
It is rare for a Yanxian tiger to attack someone without provocation unless it is extremely hungry. Unfortunately, Yanxian tigers require twice their weight in raw meat every day, meaning they are almost always hungry.
Battle FATE. Leave the Meters Running 64-68 The Gensui Chain (x32 y17) 15 minutes Defeat the geometers.
Every planting season, the rice farmers of Namai must deal with all manner of pests and blights which threaten to spoil entire crops. One of the biggest of those, by far, are plagues of geometers─voracious vilekin which can devour an entire paddy of seedlings in a matter of bells, leaving naught but caustic droppings which poison the land.
Battle FATE. The Long and Rhino Road 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x31 y26) 15 minutes Defeat the rhino beetles.
Unlike other vilekin whose insatiable appetites pose a threat to Namai's secluded rice paddies, rhino beetles are feared and despised for a completely different reason─their stampedes. Rhino beetles will descend upon the village in herds, flattening anything in their path as they search for the sweet tree sap upon which they feed.
Battle FATE. Raze the Red Lantern 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x26 y32) 15 minutes Defeat the vanaras.
During the Garlean invasion of Doma, large swathes of Yanxian wilderness were razed, leaving nothing but the charred remains of once lush forests. The fauna that once called that land home has been forced to roam deep into the realm of man in search of food. The violent exchanges that have erupted as a result have left many a family grieving the loss of a loved one.
Battle FATE. Long Hands, Long Fingers 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x22 y32) 15 minutes Defeat the tenaga.
The Far East is home to countless fantastical creatures unknown to those raised in the West. One such example is the “tenaga” or “longhands”─wooden gargoyles born of corrupted aether that has permeated the roots of certain trees. Though different in many ways, their lust for murder, however, very much mirrors that of their Eorzean counterparts.
Item FATE. Rice and Shine 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x26 y23) 15 minutes Deliver rice seedlings to the flabbergasted farmwife.
Namazu wildlings have once again invaded Namai; though not in search of food or coin, but intent on stealing the village's stock of rice seedlings. If not retrieved, the farmers will miss their planting window, and risk losing their entire crop─a disaster that would leave more than one family hungry come winter.

Spawn conditions:

  • Speak with the flabbergasted farmwife.
Item FATE. In One Basket 64-68 The Gensui Chain (x29 y22) 15 minutes Deliver hornbill eggs to the Namai farmhand.
The rice farmers of Namai have few qualms with the river hornbills that make their nests alongside the village long as the cloudkin's populations are kept under control. This requires periodical checks of their nests and the removal of eggs in cases where there are more than one. One farmhand seeks the aid of adventurers to help him complete this surprisingly dangerous task.

Spawn conditions:

  • Speak with the Namai farmhand.
Boss FATE. Tsurubebi Snugly 64-68 The Gensui Chain (x34 y15) 15 minutes Defeat Tsurubebi.
Minobi are brilliant fire-aspected specters who dwell in the valleys nestled 'twixt the Gensui Chain's ebon peaks. While most are solitary creatures, legend has that one─Tsurubebi─has grown fat supping on the very souls of its brethren, and that the power gained has rendered it quite mad.
Boss FATE. Motherly Love 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x27 y24) 15 minutes Defeat Songsi.
From their birth, Doman children are told terrifying tales of Songsi, a crimson cloudkin that lures boys and girls from their homes by calling out in an eerily woman-like voice. Once their victims have strayed far enough from safety, the monster will swoop down and snatch up the children, then carry them back to its mountaintop nest where it will tear them limb from limb for its own fledglings.
Boss FATE. Killer Apsaras 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x17 y27) 15 minutes Defeat Apsaras.
The foul discharge of the Garlean invaders' warmachina not only spoils the land, preventing crops from growing, but corrupts the very aether that flows through her. Elemental creatures that draw energy from this aether are driven to madness, such as the once-peaceful Apsaras─now feared by all who call Doma home.
Boss FATE. Linquan Continental 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x28 y31) 15 minutes Defeat Linquan.
If there is one thing the continent of Othard is not lacking, it is colorful tales of legendary monster dogs who stalk the shadows in search of virgin maids and succulent babes. Linquan is one such monster dog, and yes, everything you have heard about the abomination is true. Especially the part about the succulent babes.
Boss FATE. This Is a Da, This Is a Peng 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x15 y33) 15 minutes Defeat Dapeng.
Legend says that Dapeng─a massive cloudkin several times larger than its bi fang cousins─has a wingspan so large that it supposedly blots out the sun. However, if you are close enough to Dapeng that you can no longer see the sun, then chances are the last thing you are worried about is seeing the sun.
Defense FATE. Oneblade Wonder 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x13 y28) 15 minutes Help Senban Oneblade defeat Kuebiko.
A Hingan swordsman wandering through Doma on a journey of enlightenment and self-betterment has stumbled across a scarecrow possessed of a shikigami─a minor spirit─believed no longer under the control of its conjurer. Though he insists he is fine, it is obvious the swordsman is in over his head, and will require assistance if he is to escape this horror with his life.
Battle FATE. The Virgin Homicides 64-68 The Gensui Chain (x32 y23) 15 minutes Defeat the taoquan.
More of Doma's many legendary demon dogs have appeared to terrorize the land's young virgins who, it appears, demon dogs prefer over young harlots, old virgins, and old harlots. Think of the virgins. The young ones.
Battle FATE. Dead to Rites: Kiyofusa 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x26 y29) 15 minutes Defeat the shikigami kiyofusa and Koshu onmyoji.
An onmyoji from the Hingan isle of Koshu has sailed to Yanxia to perform unthinkable rites banned in his homeland. It is through blood sacrifice, that the wicked priest has summoned forth a restless spirit─a shikigami─and granted it a body in which it might now sow terror into the hearts of all Domans.
Battle FATE. Dead to Rites: Koja 64-68 The Glittering Basin (x18 y33) 15 minutes Defeat the shikigami koja and Koshu onmyoji.
An onmyoji from the Hingan isle of Koshu has sailed to Yanxia to perform unthinkable rites banned in his homeland.

Spawn conditions:

  • Speak with Ginko.
Defense FATE. Scared Straightheart 67-71 Valley of the Fallen Rainbow (x26 y9) 15 minutes Help Gaei Straightheart defeat the Lupin freeblades.
While indeed many of the Lupin can prove difficult or even deadly, Gaei Straightheart is an honorable youth with a passion to right wrongs and defend those unable to defend themselves. That said, his passion for do-goodery oft runs him afoul with less-than-savory characters─characters not unlike those surrounding him now...

Spawn conditions:

  • Speak with Gaei Straightheart.
Battle FATE. Wolves of a Feather 67-71 Valley of the Fallen Rainbow (x26 y9) 15 minutes Defeat the Lupin freeblades.
Alerted to their brother's plight, several of Gaei's pack have hurried to his side to assist in driving back those who would do him harm. Join the Lupin in their fight to defend Gaei.

Seeing their fortunes falter with the arrival of Gaei's pack, Straightheart's assailants summon forth their final weapon─an ill-reputed Kojin mercenary known as Wakizashi the Hunterling. Put him down, and the rest may finally admit defeat.

Spawn conditions:

Battle FATE. Mister Whiskers 67-71 The Ribbons (x31 y7) 15 minutes Defeat the ebisu catfish.
Namazu bandits are the slipperiest of thieves, both literally and figuratively, and while for the most part they prove bumbling and incompetent, their sheer numbers make them a real threat for solitary travelers. Adventurers experienced in the disciplines of war or magic are sought to deal with the nuisance.
Battle FATE. Crying Wolves 67-71 Doma (x21 y10) 15 minutes Defeat the Lupin freeblades.
Lupin who have, for one reason or another, been driven from their packs will oft end up members of small independent parties which seek revenge on those they believe wrong them─which, in their mind, ends up being everyone but themselves.
Battle FATE. Mada's Ilk 67-71 Prism Lake (x29 y6) 15 minutes Defeat the mada.
A pack of mada have journeyed far south from their native Azim Steppe to hunt and have settled on a location far too close for the comfort of those stationed in the House of the Fierce. Join the would-be liberators in this test of strength and bravery.
Battle FATE. Tora Tora Tora 67-71 Prism Lake (x28 y7) 15 minutes Defeat the rainbow tigers.

Boss FATE. Ragoh to Extremes 67-71 Monzen (x18 y8) 15 minutes Defeat Ragoh.
When the master of a summoned shikigami such as Ragoh dies before the spirit can be returned to its plane of origin, its mind slowly succumbs to madness, unable to anchor itself in reality. This is when the spirits are their most dangerous, and if not dealt with swiftly, bring about great tragedy.
Boss FATE. Très Bian 67-71 Doma (x20 y12) 15 minutes Defeat Bian.
The ruins of the once-majestic Doman Enclave are all but abandoned by man, leaving room for a new leader, one that rules with an iron, paw─Bian. Yet now, the regent grows bold, leading his hunting parties of rainbow tigers deep into liberator camps. Perhaps it is nigh time the king is declawed and dethroned.
Boss FATE. Curiosity Killed the Catfish 67-71 Monzen (x15 y10) 30 minutes Defeat Kidomaru.
Instead of leaving the giant contraption alone, several Namazu who stumbled upon an abandoned automaton of unknown origin felt compelled to poke it with sticks, ultimately awakening the metal beast now compelled to vaporize everything that moves.

Monzen (x16 y12)
The Glittering Basin (x24 y34)
