Shifting Altars of Uznair.png
Those who frequent one of Eorzea's many crowded pubs may have heard tell of a certain master thief, in whose long and illustrious career were left countless collectors cursing the gods for their misfortune. Amusing as the stories often are, most dismiss them as cautionary tales, mere parables against material greed. But if there is a kernel of truth in them─if indeed there was an ancient altar filled with unimaginable wealth─then perhaps the map you hold will lead you there...

The Shifting Altars of Uznair is a special instance that can be accessed after finding and opening treasure coffers obtained from gazelleskin treasure maps. Here, players will have the chance to explore long-abandoned ruins filled with treasure. A test of skill and luck, players will be required to fight their way to the final chamber to reap rich rewards!

Entering The Shifting Altars of Uznair

  • Players will have the chance to transport their party to The Shifting Altars of Uznair by opening treasure chests located using gazelleskin treasure maps.


Progressing through The Shifting Altars of Uznair

Using the arcane sphere in the center of the room triggers a roulette wheel, summoning forth one of several creatures. Upon defeating them, a treasure chest will appear. After claiming the contents of the treasure chest, the arcane sphere can be used again up to five times in total.

There are six different outcomes on the roulette wheel that players can receive:

Effects of each Outcome
SAU Lesser Summon.png Results in a lesser summon.
SAU Greater Summon.png Results in a greater summon.
SAU Elder Summon.png Results in an elder summon.
SAU Atomos Summon.png Summons Atomos, expelling the party from the instance.
SAU Shifting Circles.png Causes the arcane circles to shift.
SAU Matanga Summon.png Summons a Matanga prince.

Leaving The Shifting Altars of Uznair

Players will be removed from The Shifting Altars of Uznair should one of the following occur:

  • Atomos is summoned.
  • All players are defeated in combat.
  • Please note that during battle, incapacitated party members will not be returned to the starting area, and must be revived using either actions or items. It is also possible to switch classes outside of battle in order to revive. In the event the party is defeated, all players will be removed from The Shifting Altars of Uznair and cannot reenter the instance.
