If Arcanist is your first class then the Wind Sprite may be your first encounter with Sprites. They are basically concentrated elements, where elements in FFXIV includes others such as Earth, Lightning, Water, Fire and Ice. They also appear in places where you'd expect that element to be present. High up for Wind, Snowy places for Ice and in or near rivers for water, for example.
Wind Sprite Location
The ones you want are in Lower La Noscea, so exit Limsa in that direction (using the Tempest Gate or Aetheryte/Shard). Head towards Red Rooster Stead and you'll find them.
Sprites are everywhere in FFXIV. But for the purposes of the Arcanist Hunting Log Rank 1, I've stuck to the low-level ones in La Noscea!
