What is Eden’s Gate?

Eden’s Gate is the first part of the three-part Eden raid series introduced in Final Fantasy XIV:
Shadowbringers. Eden’s Gate is an 8-player raid with four stages:

  • Eden’s Gate: Resurrection
  • Eden’s Gate: Descent
  • Eden’s Gate: Inundation
  • Eden’s Gate: Sepulture

Similar to previous raid tiers, Eden’s Gate has a Normal difficulty for more casual players and a
Savage difficulty for seasoned and more experienced raiders.

How to unlock Eden’s Gate raid

To be able to unlock Eden’s Gate, you must first complete the Shadowbringers Main Scenario
Quest (MSQ
). This quest is the final MSQ for patch 5.0 of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers.

Upon completion, you will be able to accept the quest In the Middle of Nowhere through the
NPC called Anxious Crystarium Guard at The Crystarium (X:9.7, Y12:3). This quest will start
the story of the Eden raid series and unlock the questline for the Normal difficulty of Eden’s
Gate.

Eden’s Gate (Normal)

Once you have completed In the Middle of Nowhere, you should be in the area called The
Empty
, where you can accept the initial quest for the raid’s storyline from Ryne. Listed below
are the stages in Eden’s Gate along with the quests and requirements to unlock them:

  • Eden’s Gate: Resurrection (Normal)
    • Quest: Deploy the Core
