A new patch means a new raid in Final Fantasy XIV. This raid marks the beginning of Final Fantasy XIV’s Nier cross-over, so you’re probably wondering how to unlock YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse.
Complete the main scenario, and the side quest “Word about Komra.”
Before you can even step foot into the new Nier raid, you not only need to be level 80 and have completed the main scenario (which, is a given), but have completed the side quest Word about Komra in Kholusia. You can grab it from The Gossipy Dwarf in Tomra (X:12.9, Y:8.7). It’s not hard: you’ll head to the dig site at the nearby Duergar Mountains, talk to Anogg, and then find an automaton core, followed by a mining lantern. From there you’ll return to the Gossipy Dwarf and complete the quest.
Talk to the Gossipy Dwarf to start the quest chain for YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse.
With that quest out of the way, you can talk to the Gossipy Dwarf once more to grab the quest A Scandal in Komra. This will lead to a quest chain, and completing it will unlock the raid. At this point you can queue into the raid using the Duty Finder. After conquering the raid (good luck), you can finish up the quest chain.
The minimum item level required for the raid is 435, and like previous raids there is a one item a week lockout on loot, so be sure to roll on items you actually need. You will be rewarded with two Cracked Stellaclusters and one Manufactured Coin per week. The coin can be exchanged in Eulmore to enhance equipment you purchased with Allagan tomestones of phantasmagoria.
That’s how to unlock the YoRHa: Dark Apocalypse raid. It doesn’t deviate too far from established norms, but if you skipped all the side quests in Shadowbringers you may have to do some catching up.
