FFXIV Shadowbringers Shared FATEs Guide, How to Unlock Bicolor Gemstone Rewards

FFXIV Shadowbringers Shared FATEs Guide, How to Unlock Bicolor Gemstone Rewards

FFXIV Shared FATEs began back in Shadowbringers, and the grind to rank 3 in SHB zones yields a hefty bounty in Bicolor Gemstones. For players looking to make easy Gil in Final Fantasy XIV, or for anyone interested in SHB Shared FATE rewards, we’ll break down what you can exchange your Bicolor Gemstones for in all six areas and explain how to unlock Shared FATE vendors in Eulmore and The Crystarium.

Shared FATE vendors have a few extra goodies, like Materia, Glamour Prisms, Dark Matter, and Cordials. Those items are available throughout all of the SHB Shared Fate vendors, so we’ll break those out separately. If you’re looking to collect everything from the Bicolor Gemstone grind, we’ve also got a list of FFXIV Endwalker Shared Fate rewards.

Tips for Grinding SHB Shared FATEs and Ranks

In our zone charts below, you’ll notice every Shadowbringers area has a Shared FATE Rank ranging from one to three. Every vendor offers new items upon reaching the next rank, and you start at Rank 1 by completing one FATE. You’ll reach Rank 2 after completing six FATEs and Rank 3 at the 60 FATEs milestone. After reaching Rank 3 in all of SHB’s six zones, Eulmore and The Crystarium will open up their exclusive vendors, both of which offer all of the zone crafting materials plus housing items and orchestrion rolls limited to these merchants.

While you’re working on grinding ranks in all of SHB‘s Shared FATEs, pay close attention to an event’s progress on the map. If you’re on the other side of Lakeland and a FATE is at 90% completion, don’t waste your time trying to run there. You need to receive full credit for completing a FATE for it to count towards a zone’s progress, so that means getting the max reward of 72 Bicolor Gemstones per Shared FATE.

It’s worth noting you don’t have to complete a single FATE in any zone to access the Rank 1 offerings from the shop, either. If you’re capped on Bicolor Gemstones and want to grab crafting materials from Kholusia but haven’t completed a single FATE there, that’s fine. It’s essential to watch your Bicolor Gemstones and make sure you don’t exceed the 1,000 cap on the currency — that’s potential profit wasted. Always go to an area merchant, whether in Endwalker or Shadowbringers, and spend gemstones on something to sell.

FATEs are also a great source of experience, so pay attention to the level requirements in the zone you’re grinding. And if you’re in Kholusia or The Tempest, be on the lookout for players shouting about Formidable or Archaeotania spawns. Both of these are fights exclusive to these zones, rewarding their own unique currencies and a heftier bounty of 72 Bicolor Gemstones.

As a final note, Shadowbringers’ Shared FATE rewards are quite different from Endwalker. Most rewards in Endwalker that are not crafting items can’t be traded, so you won’t be able to sell them on the Market Board. However, in Shadowbringers, you can trade orchestrion rolls and furniture acquired from Bicolor Gemstones. It’s an easy way to make some quick FFXIV Gil, plus work on those battle classes.

Kholusia – Shared FATE Rewards and Ranks

FFXIV Shadowbringers Shared Fates Rewards

The Kholusia vendor, Zumutt (X: 11.8, Y:8.8), is closest to the Tomra teleport. You visit this area at the beginning and end of Shadowbringers, so its FATE level requirements have pretty drastic recommend level differences. In the north, you’ll find FATEs hovering around level 78; in the south, they’re 70-71.

This area is also home to the FATE A Finale Most Formidable, which spawns a boss sharing the namesake – Formidable. The big froggy baddie gives you 72 Bicolor Gemstones at full credit and six Formidable Cogs for trading in Eulmore.

Archaeotania, a FATE boss in The Tempest, spawns in the level 80 encounter The Head, the Tail, the Whole Damned Thing. Like with Formidable, you’ll get 72 Bicolor Gemstones for completing the FATE, along with the six Archaeotania’s Horns.
