FFXIV Shadowbringers Shared FATEs Guide

From Lakeland to the Tempest, SHB Shared Fates and Bicolor Gemstones unlock exclusive minion, housing, and orchestrion rewards at rank 3.

In Final Fantasy XIV, Shared FATEs began back in Shadowbringers, and the grind to Rank 3 in its zones yields a hefty bounty in Bicolor Gemstones. For players looking to make easy Gil in FFXIV, or for anyone interested in Shared FATE rewards from Shadowbringers, we’ll break down what you can exchange your Bicolor Gemstones for in all six areas and explain how to unlock Shared FATE vendors in Eulmore and The Crystarium.

Shared FATE vendors have a few extra goodies, like Materia, Glamour Prisms, Dark Matter, and Cordials. Those items are available throughout all of the Shadowbringers Shared Fate vendors, so we’ll break those out separately. If you’re looking to collect everything from the Bicolor Gemstone grind, we’ve also got a list of FFXIV Endwalker Shared FATEs and rewards.

Tips for Grinding Shadowbringers Shared FATEs and Ranks

In our zone charts below, you’ll notice FFXIV Shared FATE rewards are available at different Ranks ranging from one to three. Every vendor offers new items upon reaching the next rank, and you start at Rank 1 by completing one FATE. You’ll reach Rank 2 after completing six FATEs and Rank 3 at the 60 FATEs milestone. After reaching Rank 3 in all of Shadowbringers’ six zones, Eulmore and The Crystarium will open up their exclusive vendors, both of which offer all of the zone crafting materials plus housing items and orchestrion rolls limited to these merchants.

While you’re working on grinding ranks in all of Shadowbringers’ Shared FATEs, pay close attention to an event’s progress on the map. If you’re on the other side of Lakeland and a FATE is at 90% completion, don’t waste your time trying to run there. You need to receive full credit for completing a FATE for it to count towards a zone’s progress, so that means getting the max reward of 72 Bicolor Gemstones per Shared FATE.

It’s worth noting you don’t have to complete a single FATE in any zone to access the Rank 1 offerings from the shop, either. If you’re capped on Bicolor Gemstones and want to grab crafting materials from Kholusia but haven’t completed a single FATE there, that’s fine. It’s essential to watch your Bicolor Gemstones and make sure you don’t exceed the 1,000 cap on the currency — that’s potential profit wasted. Always go to an area merchant, whether in Endwalker or Shadowbringers, and spend gemstones on something to sell.

FATEs are also a great source of experience, so pay attention to the level requirements in the zone you’re grinding. And if you’re in Kholusia or The Tempest, be on the lookout for players shouting about Formidable or Archaeotania spawns. Both of these are fights exclusive to these zones, rewarding their own unique currencies and a heftier bounty of 72 Bicolor Gemstones.

As a final note, Shadowbringers’ Shared FATE rewards are quite different from Endwalker. Most rewards in Endwalker that are not crafting items can’t be traded, so you won’t be able to sell them on the Market Board. However, in Shadowbringers, you can trade orchestrion rolls and furniture acquired from Bicolor Gemstones. It’s an easy way to make some quick FFXIV Gil, and work on alternate combat Jobs in the process.
