Ultima Thule

Ultima Thule is the last destination in your journey to stop the Final Days, set on the remains of a dying star. Since you’re so close to the end of the story, this is the one area we’d recommend actually skipping Aether Currents until you’ve seen the credits. Not only will this let you get through the main story content faster, the way Aether Currents are laid out in the zone also makes it easy to grab them all at once. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the very last Aether Currents to be found in Endwalker. we’ll show you every Mare Lamentorum Aether Location so you can easily grab them all.

In total, there are 15 Aether Currents to be collected in the Ultima Thule region, and we've got coordinates and pictures of each one!

Ultima Thule Aether Currents - Ostrakon Tria

All field Aether Currents are split between two islands in Ultima Thule, with the starting area containing none at all. Some of these will be surrounded by enemies, so make sure to kill them before trying to attune.

Ultima Thule Quest Aether Currents

Ultima Thule follows the same pattern as other areas, requiring you to finish a number of quests before flying is unlocked. You will however get all these quests before the very final section of the main story. Flying is especially important in this zone, since it’s required to reach a special boss FATE (and the area itself is awkward to navigate in general).

The main story quest names start to look a little strange as you progress through the Ultima Thule, so the titles listed below won't match one-to-one.

  • Ending as One (requires main story quest Main Scenario Quest Where Knowledge Leads)
  • A Most Stimulationg Discussion (requires main story quest Main Scenario Quest Where Knowledge Leads)
  • Learn to Love (requires main story quest Victοry … Lost)
  • Combat Evolved (requires main story quest Victοry … Lost)
  • You're Not Alone (main story quest, unmissable)
