The City of the Ancients quest in FFXIV requires you to survey a unique structure and finding it in the open world can be challenging. Here’s the location of the structure which resembles those in the copy of the Qitana Ravel mural and how you can complete the City of the Ancients quest in FFXIV.

Final Fantasy 14 is an MMORPG but there are plenty of story-based quests that are essential for progress and understanding the lore deeply. On top of that, there are a wide range of jobs, animals, and dungeons locked behind these Main Scenario Quests.

Ahead of the release of Dawntrail, you’d want to complete the Main Scenario quests introduced in the Shadowbringers DLC to be able to access all the new content. One such quest with a rather confusing solution is the City of the Ancients, which revolves around finding a small structure on the map without any helpful clues.

So, here’s how to complete the City of the Ancients FFXIV quest and the location of the Qitana Ravel structure.
