Where Are Reducibles

Editor's Note: Last Updated for Patch 5.3/5.31. Tables below updated 9/14.

Where are these things at?

To be honest, it is going to depend on what you are going for! I'll try to hammer out as many easy to look at references here if you don't like using tools such as Garland Bell (at GarlandTools.org/bell) or XIVClock. I will also do my best to categorize them in such a way that will make sense.

To also try and explain a little bit here (as will be done in a general tips page...) with regards on how some of this works.

When it comes to Ephemeral type nodes, they are available at virtually all times of the Eorzean Day. Over the course of the 24 hour ET day, there are six (6) windows of opportunity as far as when Ephemeral nodes appear. Unlike the legendary nodes that many are used to, Ephemeral nodes can be respawned through the simple act of touching some of the regular gathering nodes in the area around the node. An example of which we will illustrate with a simple picture from in game:

Above, I'm standing at the Windtea Leaves node spawn location in Yanxia. Nearby at the fully zoomed out minimap, you can see where the three pairs of regular gathering nodes appear. With each pair, as long as you touch 1 node in 2 pairs, it will respawn the Ephemeral node. Example, if I went to the closest one to the south, then the closest one to the north, the Ephemeral node has respawn for another round of collectable gathering.

Without further adieu....

The following cycles are merely only suggestions and when there are multiple possible target items in a given slot, they are interchangeable.
