Western Thanalan is a location in Final Fantasy XIV.

It largely serves as a starting zone for players beginning in Ul'dah, and a key hub for many Main Scenario quests.

StoryEdit

LocationsEdit

Western Thanalan lies directly west of Ul'dah, straddling the coastline of the Rhotano Sea. It connects to Central Thanalan in the east, and ferry services at Vesper Bay lead to the city-state of Limsa Lominsa. Access to Ul'dah is available through the Gate of the Sultana. A passage leading to the Goblet is available just southwest of the Gate.

AetherytesEdit

The only Aetheryte is located at Horizon, in the center of the map.

AreasEdit

Western Thanalan contains the following areas:

  • Hammerlea - A flat plain in the south.
  • Horizon's Edge - The central region of the zone.
  • Footfalls - A series of winding canyon pathways along the coastline.
  • Cape Westwind - The northwestern-most point of the zone, it houses a Garlean stronghold.
