FFXIV Shadowbringers is here and with it, of course, begins a steady stream of new dungeons that will be added with each patch. It will be a while before the next major content update, so get cozy with the new level 80 dungeons that will make up the expert roulette. Here’s where to unlock the level 80 dungeons that make up the expert roulette currently in FFXIV Shadowbringers.
Unlocking the Level 80 Dungeons in FFXIV Shadowbringers
Full List for Expert Roulette as of FFXIV Shadowbringer’s Launch
Note: If you’re here, it’s likely that you already completed the main story quest and are simply looking for the other two dungeons that make up the new expert roulette. The list does include a main story quest dungeon that you may not want to have the title spoiled for you. We’re not going to talk about the story at all, but just in case you’re here on accident or getting a head start, you’ve been warned.
As has been the case since Stormblood, dungeons will be added in alternating two and then one, cycles. Meaning there will be either two or three expert dungeons in any given point.
For the start of Shadowbringers, there will be at least three level 80 dungeons you can unlock including the two you have to quest for, and the one from the story. Here they are:
- Amaurot (Unlocked via Main Story Quest)
- The Twinning (Post-Game Unlock)
- Akadaemia Anyder (Post-Game Unlock)
You can’t jump into The Twinning and Akadaemia Anyder until you’ve beaten the final main story quest, so wrap that up if you haven’t yet obviously if you want to unlock all the level 80 dungeons in FFXIV Shadowbringers.
How to Unlock The Twinning
To unlock The Twinning, go to The Crystarium at X 9.2, Y 11.2. The point is close to The Dousal Gate, not far from the main plaza itself. Simply speak to the NPC Bethana, have a few conversations, then you’ll have access to the level 80 dungeon. Easy one.
How to Unlock Akadaemia Anyder
This one is slightly longer as you’ll need to talk to a few people in The Tempest before jumping into the dungeon but it’s more or less the same as every dungeon unlock quest ever.
Find the starter NPC, the Overwrought Ondo outside of Eulmore at the Southeast Derelicts location at X 12.8, Y 12.3.
Speak to him and then you’ll be asked to go to The Tempest and speak to a few NPCs around the area near The Macarenses Angle. The quest marker, as usual, will make it extremely clear.
After you’ve done that you’ll have unlocked the level 80 dungeon Akadaemia Anyder and be on your way to unlocking Expert Roulette as of launch day for FFXIV Shadowbringers.
All you need to do is complete each dungeon at least once, and you’ll be able to run the roulette once per day for its sweet bonus to get Goetia Tomestones.
That’s all you need to know for where to start the level 80 dungeon quests in FFXIV Shadowbringers. Best of luck grinding out those tomestones.
