FFXIV 5.41 The Diadem and Ishgardian Restoration Guide

With the release of Patch 5.41 and the addition of new rewards it seems the Ishgardian Restoration and the Diadem have a lot to offer in Final Fantasy XIV!

In this guide, we will cover the various mechanics of the Diadem as well as the list of rewards available in exchange for Skybuilder's Scrips.

Once you have unlocked the Ishgardian Restoration in Ishgard via the "Towards the Firmament" quest, you'll have access to the Firmament. This zone will guide you through the reconstruction of Ishgard and more importantly here, to the Diadem and your rewards.

To unlock the Diadem you simply need to use a Lv.10 gatherer class and speak to Augebert in the Firmament (X: 11.4 Y: 14.1). Follow the yellow exclamation point until you need to speak with Aurvael located a few meters away (X: 10.8 Y:14). You will then be able to go into the Diadem with any of your Lv.10+ gatherers.

Gathering in the Diadem

Once inside the Diadem, you will get access to numerous gathering spots, be it mineral deposits or fishing spots. Most gathering nodes seems to be distributing the new resources at random, meaning that mining the same spot twice, for example, will not always give you the same materials.

Materials go from Lv.10 to 80 — the higher the level the Higher the number of scrips and ranking points you get from it.

Rare materials also exist in the Diadem and are only available in given weather windows: Umbral Flare, Umbral Tempest, Umbral Levin, Umbral Duststorm

Gathering like you usually do is not the only way to get new materials in the Diadem. In fact, the addition of a brand new weapon for gatherers gives players the ability to charge an Ather gauge before unleashing an attack, defeating monsters and getting materials from them!

Feel free to use this new Aetheromatic Auger as much as you can and get extra collectibles!

Approving your materials

Gathering resources in the Diadem will not allow you to use these just yet. In fact, you will need to talk to Flotpassant in the Firmament in Ishgard (X 10.8 Y:14) in order to get your materials approved.
