Exclamation Point - Red Emblem.svg Foe changes: As soon as you complete the first quest, spawns of some areas in Cantha will change to fit the new story:
  1. These updated areas are more challenging than their Factions counterparts.
  2. These new spawns will be present even if other characters in the party have not completed Factions yet.
  3. To restore the default spawns, take Memories of Purity from the Herald of Purity in Kaineng Center (requires completion of Cleansing Morostav Trail).


In order to progress through the full main storyline, you must have access to the following explorable areas:

General suggestions[edit]

Threat assessment
Recommended skills
  • Winds of Change foes are easy to ball up: bring area of effect (AoE) skills, including Panic and Ray of Judgment.
  • Winds of Change allied NPCs frequently appear: bring area of effect (AoE) protection and healing skills (so that your allies benefit), including Shelter and Union.
  • Winds of Change objectives can require protection of allies: bringing Blood is Power or minions allows you to exploit NPC's AI, thereby allowing them to be lead to safety.
  • Winds of Change features numerous hostile spirits and minions: bring anti-summon skills to help take them down quickly, including Spiritual Pain and Consume Soul.
