Unlock requirements and level range for Eureka Orthos Deep Dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV

The third Deep Dungeon is part of patch 6.35.

The wait is over — Final Fantasy XIV players have finally glimpsed the third Deep Dungeon to be added to the game in patch 6.35, Eureka Orthos. Two visuals of Eureka Orthos were shown off in the 74th Producer’s Live Letter, subject to change as it is still under development as of this writing. Most prominently, they appear to feature Allagan technology in the dungeon’s environments. Here is what we know about Eureka Orthos.

Requirements needed to unlock Eureka Orthos

Players will need to have completed the Main Scenario Quest “Endwalker,” and to have cleared floor 50 of the Palace of the Dead, the first Deep Dungeon to be released in Final Fantasy XIV. Eureka Orthos is the first Deep Dungeon to be released since the Stormblood expansion and will require players to be level 81 in order to queue for it. The unlock quest is located at Mor Dhona (X: 21.8, Y: 8.1), where you will have to talk to Koh Rabntah. This will start the “Delve into Myth” quest, which will then unlock Eureka Orthos.

Once unlocked, you may enter Eureka Orthos by speaking to Khatun in Mor Dhona (X: 34.8, Y: 19.2). Do note that if you are entering with a party, all your party members must be in the same instance in Mor Dhona in order to enter Eureka Orthos.

How Eureka Orthos will work in Final Fantasy XIV

Like its predecessors, players will be given the option to run it in a party of up to four people or to do it solo. There will be nine floors in a typical floorset, followed by a final boss on the last floor. Progress will be saved between floorsets, and wiping in a floor will require players to start from the beginning.

As with all Deep Dungeons, Eureka Orthos will feature an independent leveling system, meaning that the levels that players gain in the dungeon will not translate to their levels outside of it. All players will begin the Deep Dungeon instance at level 81, no matter what level their jobs are, and will slowly gain access to their level 81 to 90 skill pool as they fight their way through the instance, gaining EXP by killing the mobs that spawn throughout the floor.

Your equipped gear and stats will not matter, as you will gain stats as you progress through Eureka Orthos, similar to the Aetherpool Armor and Aetherpool Arm that Palace of the Dead and Heaven-on-High have. Does that mean you can enter the instance with no gear equipped? Absolutely. Orthos Aetherpool Armor/Arm will not be carried over from Palace of the Dead or Heaven-on-High.

Once you have successfully cleared Floor 30 of Eureka Orthos, the “Rage Extinguished” sidequest will be unlocked, allowing players to start from either Floor 1 or Floor 21 on future saves. If you are starting from Floor 21, you and your party will be set to level 90 and your inventories will be cleared of Protomanders and Demiclones.
