Ephemeral Nodes Shadowbringers

Updated for FFXIV patch 5.4 Shadowbringers: Futures Rewritten

These are for the new Shadowbringers expansion only. You can also view old Heavensward and Stormblood nodes here

Ephemeral Nodes spawn for 4 hours. You can re-spawn them in that 4 hours, if you touch a node from each of 2 different node "pairs" surrounding them.

Use Collector's Glove: Collectable items gathered from Ephemeral Nodes are used for Aetherial Reduction. They convert into Crystals, Clusters, and varying types of Aethersand. The resulting Crystals and Clusters are of the same type as can be found directly on the node.

New items for 5.3 were added to all existing nodes and are highlighted in RED below
