In Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, a simple, yet important question is currently being asked widely throughout the community at the moment — where exactly did the Aether Compass go?

For those looking to find those aether currents in order to unlock the ability for their mounts to fly in the air within a certain region, here's a breakdown of where to find the Aether Compass in FFXIV: Endwalker after the latest patch.

FFXIV: Endwalker Aether Compass: Where to Find it Post-Patch

The Aether Compass was a key item given to players who successfully completed the Heavensward quest "Drinking the Pain Away." It's been located in the same place for every expansion since.

If you're having trouble finding your Aether Compass in FFXIV now that Endwalker has arrived in early access, however, you're not alone.

This is because the Aether Compass has been moved from the "Key Items" tab in your inventory to the Duty menu under "Collection."

Thankfully, it can also still be re-assigned to your hot bar for easy access. If you previously had the item on your hot bar, the icon might have changed to a question mark. This can also be removed and replaced with the new version.
