# FFXIV: Stormblood – All Aether Current Locations

Just like in the Heavensward expansion where flying was first introduced, one can only fly in a given region by getting all aether currents in said area first. Each map has a total of fifteen aether currents- ten of those you can just pick up along the fields, and five of them you can only get by completing certain quests.

You can unlock flying in The Ruby Sea at level 63, Yanxia at 64, the Azim Steppe at 66 and the rest at later levels. That said, it seems it would be smarter to just finish the Main Scenario first and get to level 70 before unlocking flying in any of the maps. You won’t be needing to fly anyway early on in the game- it’s only mostly for convenience when doing the various end-game stuff.

Without further ado, here are the locations of all aether currents in Stormblood!

**Note: Quests with aether current rewards are ALWAYS marked with a blue sign so they’re easy to spot.*
