FFXIV Book of Netherfire I

FFXIV Book of Netherfire I Relic Book Guide | FF14 Netherfire 1

Our journey through the books for A Relic Reborn continues with The Book of Netherfire I. And, I figured, I’d just answer this in the intro – no there is no second volume. For some reason it still has the Roman numeral in the title. Well, enough of that, you came here to clear the book as quickly as possible, so let’s get on and do that.

How to Obtain the Book of Netherfire I

As with the other so-called “Relic Books”, you can exchange 100×Tomestones of Poetics for the Book of Netherfire I. I would like to (re-)remind you that, if you’re holding a copy of a different volume of the Zodiak Braves, it will be removed. So make sure it’s cleared before you confirm your Netherfire purchase.

Possible Tips

  • One thing I like to do with these books is, whichever set of objectives I complete the book on, do the Mor Dhona bit last. That way, you’re already in the vicinity of Revenant’s Toll to swap out your active book.
  • Another approach is to group them by principality: La Noscea, the Black Shroud, Thanalan and Mor Dhona.
  • If you do the dungeons first or last, then use some Priority Aetheryte tickets (from your Adventurer Squadron), or Free Company Reduced Rates buff to cut the cost of all that Aetheryte travel.

Here’s the usual gaggle of enemies you’re used to, along with a map on where to find them. Each has an individual page where you can find more information and targets from other hunting logs nearby.

They sure like to make you travel or spend you gil on teleports when clearing these, don’t they? The FATEs for the Book of Netherfire I send you to Mor Dhona, the East Shroud and Southern Thanalan.

Another Notch on the Torch

Location: Northern Silvertear, Mor Dhona
Coordinates: Around (X:31, Y:5)
Nearest Aetheryte: Revenant’s Toll

Happily Mappable

Another Notch on the Torch takes place at the Singing Shards, an area charged with Lightning energies. Apparently some important event happened here. Maybe.

Hapalit Slappable

Porus is a Hapalit – a huge one at that. Apparently “Big Bosses” is a thing for the Book of Netherfire.

Use your weapons to make him more… porous than before he met you. /chuckle

Hoppily Clappable

Okay, it’s 1am, I needed to make that one up.

But you should congratulate yourself when you finish this FATE. Other Hapilits will join in the fight and if you use AoEs then there are Lightning Sprites too.

Nearby Relic Book Objective

While you’re in Mor Dhona, your required levequest One Big Problem Solved is in the same area. Pick it up to save on teleportation fees.

Everything’s Better

Location: Sylphlands, East Shroud
Coordinates: Around (X:23.5, Y:15)
Nearest Aetheryte: The Hawthorn Hut

What Is Better? Everything!

What Is Worse? Interruptions!

This FATE is held fairly deep in the Sylphlands and, I forewarn you, with other enemies around too. Once you level sync, Violet Screeches and Milkroot Sapling are liable to attack. These are not your FATE targets!

What Is Needed? Patience

For Everything’s Better, it is the Sylph Bonnets (walking mushrooms/toadstools) that you need to defeat. Of course, staying alive matters too. If you’re not grouped, or joined by others, be patient and clear normal landscape enemies as and when they get involved.

Return to Cinder

Location: Zanr’ak Alter, Southern Thanalan
Coordinates: Around (X:24.7, Y:26.1)
Nearest Aetheryte: Forgotten Springs

Huge Map, Small Alter

From either Little Ala Mhigo or Forgotten Springs, head to this almost unassuming spot on the Southern Thanalan map.

Huge Amalj’aa, Small Miqo’te

Cindersoot Pegujj Chah is using the Alter to try to discern the future of battles between the Amalj’aa and Ul’dah. And we can’t have that now, can we?

He isn’t likely to stop, so I may be a min-height Miqo’te, but I have a job to do.

Huge Amalj’aa, Small Amalj’aa

The area around the alter is populated even outside of the FATE, with Zanr’ak Pugilists and Thaumaturges, for example. And technically none of them are involved in it.

Until they are, that is. Do the same as in dungeons: clear the adds, then refocus on the boss.

All you have to do is take down Cinderfoot, while not being defeated by other Amalj’aa and Fire Sprites in the process.

Nearby Relic Book Objective

While you’re in Thanalan, consider doing the levequest Circling the Ceruleum to save on teleportation fees.


Circling the Ceruleum

  • Quest-giver: Rurubana, Northern Thanalan
  • Nearest Aetheryte: Camp Bluefog

How This Leve Works

This leve is one of the simplest types, to be honest. So I’ve made it really complicated to give you extra satisfaction. No, no I didn’t, because that’d be dumb. Here you go:

Running in Circles

Once you initiate the Levequest, your map will show circles where you need to scout.

Circle of Defeat

Each glowing destination circle spawns enemies. Defeat all those that spawn. The last one will have the biggest one no matter which order you do them in.

Came, Circled, Conquered

Prepare to be richly rewarded for your efforts when you return to Rurubana.

If You Put It That Way

  • Quest-giver: Lodille, Whitebrim Front
  • Nearest Aetheryte: Ishgard (Foundation) or Camp Dragonhead
  • Grand Company: The Immortal Flames

How This Leve Works

There are two ways to deal with If you Put It That Way. You can either defeat all the enemies here, or use your +10 or more levels over the Leve and focus on your end target. This may depend on which class you’re running with too.

Your Ultimate Target

This Blizzard Biast is your primary target. Take it out and the Leve finishes.

Adds Added

At different health breakpoints, the Blizzard Biast summons more minions to its cause.

Defeat them all, or push through and take down the ‘boss’.

Ticked Off

Pick up your reward and that’s another tick on your Book of Netherfire achieved!

One Big Problem Solved

  • Quest-giver: Eidhart, Saint Coinach’s Find
  • Nearest Aetheryte: Revenant’s Toll
  • Grand Company: The Maelstrom

How This Leve Works

This is one of those “massacre the enemies” levequests.

Not-so-Giant List

To actually pass the leve, you need to defeat only one of:

More Giants for Science!

Defeating more within the five-minute allocation will earn you higher rewards, by the way. And that leve music ain’t going away until the five minutes is up, so you may as well kill more giants – for Science!

Dungeon Enemies

A full selection of end-boss targets awaits. An animated statue, a half-dressed demon woman and a tiny mage with a giant minion, to be precise!

Can I Run Them Unsynced?

Unless you’re well overlevelled and your gear is well overlevelled too, then take a normal party into the Hard Dungeons below. By Level 50, with your relic weapon, you can run The Sunken Temple of Qarn unsynced with few problems. My main issue was getting the Avoirdupois over the square buttons!

The Adjudicator

The Adjudicator - the animated stone boss of the Sunken Temple of Qarn (Normal Mode)

Dungeon: Sunken Temple of Qarn


By this stage you’ve run this dungeon at least once if not more by now. Dealing with the staves that appear is helpful but not technically required to finish off the boss. It depends on how your group feels and if anyone’s said they’re first-timers.


Halicarnassus - the end boss for Haukke Manor (Hard)

Dungeon: Haukke Manor (Hard)


Don’t let her health drop too quickly. Focus on the adds because the more HP the adds have when Harlicarnassus consumes them, the closer you get to her one-shot wipe.

Apart from that, beat the demon to a pulp as is the right and proper thing to do.

Mumuepo the Beholden

Mumuepo the Beholden - one of the end-of-dungeon bosses of Halitali (Hard)

Dungeon: Halatali (Hard)


Mumuepo should be your group’s first target when the second wave of foes enters the arena. His ability to chain a team member to the spot and deal huge AoE damage need to be halted ASAP.

If another of the group is chained, get to the Thal’s Scepter and right-click (“Use”) it to free them. The chained player should get out of the AoE as quickly as they can.

TL;DR The Book of Netherfire I Definitely Has Its Challenges

And that is especially true of the dungeon bosses. But if you don’t freak out at the idea of tanking like I do, you’ll be great. Outside of dungeons, enjoy the trek to take down landscape bosses and clear the Leves.

I’m going to try to get my remaining FATE screenshots, despite the Yo-Kai Watch Event being on and groups of people FATE-smashing! Wish me luck or something.
