Northern Thanalan is a location in Final Fantasy XIV.

In A Realm Reborn, this zone is the highest level area and serves as the final area for the Main Scenario.


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

Northern Thanalan is where the final phase of Operation Archon takes place, with the Eorzean Alliance besieging Castrum Meridianum in response to Gaius van Baelsar's ultimatum.

During Dreams of Ice, the escaped Garlean spy Eline Roaille is recaptured here by the Crystal Braves.

Spoilers end here.


Northern Thanalan lies along the southern border of Mor Dhona, in a mountainous area rich with ceruleum deposits. The extraction of this resource has resulted in the sky obtaining a permanently blue hue.


There are two Aetherytes: at Camp Bluefog in the south, and the Ceruleum Processing Plant in the center.


Northern Thanalan contains two areas:

  • Bluefog - The rocky badlands south and center
  • Raubahn's Push - The exterior of Castrum Meridianum in the north.


Camp BluefogEdit

A forward military camp of the Bluefog region, itself named for the distinct haze of ceruleum.

A facility run by Amajina & Sons Mineral Concern to process ceruleum mined in the area.


Northern Thanalan's environment may exhibit any of the following weather conditions:

  • Clear Skies
  • Sunshine
  • Fog
  • Overcast
