A Realm Reborn: The Waking Sands
In FFXIV, A Realm Reborn, the Waking Sands is an important location for turning in quests in the Main Scenario. It is the home of Minfilia, and the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. Unlike the Grand Companies, The Scions of the Seventh Dawn are leaders and fighters of all allied nations.
Finding the waking sands can be confusing when starting the game, specially since it is not currently on the map. But it is located in Vesper Bay, in a building to the left from the dock. Vesper Bay can be found in Western Thanalan next to the Footfalls and the entrance to Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks.
The Waking Sands is also the underground hideout of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. It is where many of the main characters of the story can be scene and main story quest are given. You may find Thancred, Lady Minfilia, and others there along with minor cut-scenes.
