Final Fantasy XIV can be a daunting game at times. With nearly decades of story to be poured into the Main Story Quest (MSQ) alone, it can feel like completing the story is a Herculean task. However, once you’ve completed the MSQ, deciding what to do can be just as daunting. With so much on offer, it can be crippling for some players trying to decide what to do next. To help you out, we’ve just outlined some of the things you can do in FFXIV Endwalker after the main story quest is completed.
Aside from the 24-person Crystal Tower raids, there are no mandatory story raids in Final Fantasy XIV. However, they are some of the most compelling and interesting content in the game. You don’t have to jump into Savage difficulty right away. Just trying out the normals is enough to get you some awesome gear and engage in some intriguing side stories. But once you’re ready, you can take the plunge into the game’s most difficult content.
Final Fantasy XIV isn’t exactly known for its PvP, but it does have some fantastic content that’s entirely player versus player. Crystalline Conflict, Frontline and Rival Wings are three different game modes. Crystalline Conflict is a 5v5 tug of war type game mode. Rival Wings is a MOBA-like mode and Frontline is a massive mass battle. You can also duel players, so you can enjoy a lot of PvP content.
Relax in your Island Sanctuary
Added in the 6.2 patch, Island Sanctuary is a farming side content that adds a variety of things to do to the game. It’s a long road to complete but still incredibly engaging. The hardcore player base grinded out much of this content in a month, but for late entrants it’s still a great way to get some unique minions and mounts.

Restore a city to its former glory
There are currently two recovery content items in the game. The Ishgardian Restoration and the Doman Restoration. One focuses on crafting and gathering, while the latter is more donation-based. Anyway, this content is redefining what it means to be a hero in FFXIV. It’s not just about battles! You can help people rebuild and live a new life with your character in the game.
Ditch your worries at the Golden Saucer
The Golden Saucer is functionally a terrible casino because the player always wins! However, that is what makes it so addicting as you can waste hours playing the numerous mini-games here. In addition, there are side games like Doman Mahjong, Lords of Verminion, and Triple Triad to enjoy. Speaking of the triple triad…
Collect Triple Triad cards
Collecting the 350+ Triple Triad cards in the game is a massive quest, but one that allows you to create all kinds of content. From Raids to Trials to Triple Triad games with NPCs and side quests, there is no other collection in the game that does so many different tasks. In addition, collecting the cards makes a better deck, so this side content adds to its own success!
Become a crafter or gatherer
The crafting and gathering system in Final Fantasy XIV is one of the best in any MMO. It takes real game knowledge and skill to use your abilities to craft an item, and that adds incredible depth within the system. Also, with parallel leveling up to level 90, there is a lot of content in these crafting jobs, so be sure to check them out!
Save for a house
Housing has been called one of FFXIV’s “true endgames”. That’s because the millions of gil it takes to buy a home and the housing lottery system make it seem very daunting. However, starting a free company or otherwise saving up for a private home is a great way to fill your time in FFXIV.

Enter the RP scene
If you think you’ve exhausted all the content in FFXIV, then you simply need to create your own! Along with all the content created by the developers, there are hundreds if not thousands of RPG communities in Final Fantasy XIV. These range from casual to deep role-playing. But by far the easiest way is to go to an in-game nightclub. There are dozens of them in each data center, and it’s an incredibly unique way to play and enjoy the game.
