Find & Farm FFXIV Endwalker FATE Bosses

Final Fantasy XIV's Endwalker expansion brings a fresh wave of excitement with the addition of two unique boss FATEs: Chi and Daivadipa. These battles are not just about fighting; they're gateways to exclusive rewards that every player dreams of. Understanding how to trigger these encounters is crucial, and this article aims to guide you through each step. From the initial move towards finding these bosses to the strategies for maximizing your contributions, we've got you covered.

Spawning Chi and Daivadipa

Triggering the Appearance of Chi and Daivadipa in FFXIV Endwalker

For Chi:

  1. Head to Ultima Thule: Travel to the zone known as Ultima Thule.
  2. Complete Two Preliminary FATEs: Finish two specific FATEs in Ultima Thule before Chi will appear. The FATEs are "Omicron Recall: Comms Expansion" (located at coordinates X:29.4, Y:25.8) and "Omicron Recall: Secure Connection" (found at X:33.3, Y:26.8).
  3. Patience and Persistence: Chi's boss FATE, "Omicron Recall: Killing Order," won't spawn every time you complete the preliminary FATEs. It appears within a 48-hour window after the last spawn, so stay determined.

For Daivadipa:

  1. Journey to Thavnair: Navigate to the vibrant landscapes of Thavnair.
  2. Proceed with Predecessor FATEs: Two prerequisite FATEs stand between you and Daivadipa. Engage in "Devout Pilgrims vs. the Jungle Lizards" (Located at X:34.3, Y:27.5) and "Devout Pilgrims vs. the Apalala" (Found at X:23.0, Y:23.3).
  3. Await the Spawn: Completing these FATEs doesn't guarantee Daivadipa will immediately reveal itself. Daivadipa can only spawn once on a world server within a 48-hour window of its last appearance [1].

Additional Tips:

  • Watch for Spawn Windows: Use community tools like Faloop! to track whether a boss FATE is "open" or "closed," saving you time and effort.
  • Form or Join Parties: For both Chi and Daivadipa, grouping up boosts your chances of contributing significantly to the FATE and maximizes your reward potential.
  • Watch for Mechanics: Both boss FATEs have unique mechanics. Chi requires avoiding line and ring AoEs, while Daivadipa demands attention to color-coded attacks [2]. Adaptability is key.

Maximizing Contributions in FATEs

Maximizing Your Contribution in Boss FATEs

Successful participation in boss FATEs like Chi and Daivadipa requires strategizing to maximize your contribution score. The higher your contribution, the better reward you'll earn — namely Chi Bolts and Daivadipa's Beads [3]. Here are tactics to increase your effectiveness:

  1. Enter With a Full Party: Forming or joining a full party enhances your ability to deal damage, manage mechanics, and heal. Use the Party Finder or shout in the respective zone to gather allies.
  2. Understand Fight Mechanics: Each boss FATE has unique mechanics that can severely impact your score if handled improperly. Knowledge of these mechanics keeps you alive and maximizes your damage output and healing efficiency.
  3. Support Your Allies: Your contribution isn't measured solely by direct damage. Applying buffs and healing can significantly boost your score. Ensure you're well-stocked on relevant potions and have a clear understanding of your role within the party.
  4. Gear Appropriately: Wearing the best equipment available for your level ensures you're contributing as effectively as possible. A well-geared character can dramatically affect their and their party's success chance.
  5. Stay Active: Engage with the boss at every opportunity, making sure to bounce back quickly if incapacitated. Time away from the fight is a direct hit to your contribution.
  6. Optimize Your Abilities: Every class has a set of skills most beneficial in large group engagements. Focus on these abilities for maximum impact.

Applying these strategies can substantially elevate your participation and effectiveness, leading to higher contribution scores and better rewards.
