Now that Patch 6.01 for FFXIV has been released, it – among many changes – has also added the Pandaemonium Raid to the game. More specifically, to Final Fantasy XIV’s latest expansion pack – Endwalker. Right now, only the first chapter of this raid, titled Pandaemonium: Asphodelos, is available. The Savage version of this will be released with the 6.05 patch. If you were wondering how to start this Raid, our Unlock Pandaemonium Raid FFXIV guide is here to help you and answer all of your questions.
How to Unlock Pandaemonium Raid in FF14
There are a couple of prerequisites you will need to fulfill before you can start the Pandaemonium Raid in FFXIV. The first of these is that you will need to have completed the entirety of the Main story in this new expansion pack. The second prerequisite states that you will have to be Level 90 before you can embark on it. But, if you have finished the Endwalker’s Main Story, you should already be sufficiently leveled up for this. You will also need to have an average item level of at least 565. If you have all of these, then we can move on to the next section, which is all about how to begin the Pandaemonium Raid.
The quest chain you will need to do to unlock this Raid starts in the Old Sharlayan location. Speak to Nemjiji there (X:9.6 Y:11.9). This NPC is near Aetheryte Plaza, and this is how you will start the “The Crystal from Beyond” quest. This is the first quest, and you will unlock the Pandaemonium when you complete the second quest in this quest chain, titled “Where Familiars Dare”. The Pandaemonium Raid will reward you with special tokens. You can then trade these tokens for Pandaemonium Gear – special and powerful end-game equipment, which is some of the best gear in the entire game.
