Zadnor is an Adventuring Foray introduced in patch 5.55 of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers as part of the Save the Queen storyline. It sees players work to reclaim and push through the zone by engaging in various activities.
The IVth Legion has retreated to the barren plateaus of Zadnor, their imperial flagship looming ominously on the horizon. What they hope to gain from their newfound base of operations remains to be seen, but the Resistance refuses to stand idle. As both sides are pushed to their limit, who will emerge the victor as the battle for Bozja reaches its bloody climax?Duty description
Zadnor was once a gentle rolling plain until the Fourth Umbral Calamity some thousands of years ago caused a surge of earth-aspected aether that transformed the land into various plateaus. Miners and prospectors came to Zadnor for the earth crystals, eventually turning the area into a wasteland from centuries of industry.
- Camp Vrdelnis
- Zuprtik Point
- Ljeaban Point
- Hrmovir Point
- The Southern Plateau
- The Western Plateau
- The Northern Plateau

After reaching Rank 25 and completing "The Dalriada" critical engagement for the first time, the Resistance Councilor will give the player 3 Proof of Honors for 20 million mettle, which can be used to obtain Suns of Fortitude, Valor, and Succor, which will increase the player's HP, damage dealt, and healing potency respectively. Each of them are permament buffs can go up to 10 stacks, and can carry over to the Bozjan Southern Front and the normal and savage versions of Delubrum Reginae. The amount of Proof of Honors needed to increase the stack of one buff will increase every 2 stacks of that buff. Obtaining 10 stacks of all 3 buffs will reward players the "Suns of Bozja" achievement.
