Ishgardian Restoration

With the Dragonsong War brought to its conclusion, the Houses of Lords and Commons have approved large-scale reconstruction works aimed at revitalizing the Holy See of Ishgard. The principal site for the project is the Firmament district, which sustained extensive damage during the millennium-long conflict. Appointed overseer of this endeavor is the young Lord Francel of House Haillenarte, who now seeks able and willing artisans the realm over to contribute to this great and noble cause.

About the Ishgardian Restoration

The Ishgardian Restoration is an initiative wherein Disciples of the Hand and Land joined forces to help reconstruct the Firmament, a district in the Foundation devastated by the Dragonsong War.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of skybuilders one and all, the Risensong Quarter now stands complete, bringing the restoration effort to a triumphant close. As a new age dawns in Ishgard, luminaries from across Eorzea have been invited to the Firmament to take part in a ceremony commemorating this momentous occasion.

The Firmament


Although the reconstruction of the Firmament is complete, there is still demand for construction materials. Disciples of the Land are tasked with gathering these materials, which are used by Disciples of the Hand to craft any necessary supplies.

Gathering Materials

Speak with Aurvael in the Firmament (X:10.8 Y:14.0) to add the gathering spots for the latest chapter of the Ishgardian Restoration to your gathering log. These locations include those found in the Diadem, which contain materials used in Ishgardian Restoration recipes.

The Diadem

The Diadem is an area exclusively for gatherers and offers items used in Ishgardian Restoration crafter recipes.

Time Limit 180 minutes
Level Requirement Miner/Botanist/Fisher Lv. 10
Number of Participants 1 to 8 Players

Special Weather Conditions

Some items can only be gathered under certain weather conditions. Should such conditions occur, it is the ideal time to seek out these rare items.

Aetheromatic Auger

During forays to the Diadem, you will gain access to the duty action Aetheromatic Auger. In order to perform the action, you must first increase the auger's store of compressed aether by gathering as a miner or botanist. When you have enough compressed aether, you may expend it to unleash a powerful attack against an enemy. Enemies defeated using the auger are known to yield a wealth of resources.

Experience Point Gain

Adjustments are made to experience point gain for each item gathered. To a certain degree, even low-level items will grant experience points appropriate to the player's current level.

Item Inspection

Flotpassant in the Firmament (X:10.8 Y:14.0) will inspect any items gathered in the Diadem.

Once you have collected five stamps, you may exchange the voucher for a Kupo of Fortune card. You may carry up to ten Kupo of Fortune cards. The items that offer stamps vary according to the player's crafter class level.
