The newest large scale battle content in Final Fantasy XIV, The Bozja Southern Front, has gone live. This new content shares a few similarities to Eureka from Stormblood in that they take place in large instanced areas but differs in many more ways. In this guide, we’re going to break down a few key tips and tricks for getting your Bozja experience up and running smoothly.
Getting Started – The Basics
FFXIV Bozja Guide Tips & Tricks
First things first, you need to have Bozja unlocked, obviously. You’ll need Shadowbringers completed and also Return to Ivalice from the Stormblood expansion completed as well to begin your foray into Bozja. Check out our guide here for steps on how to catch up if you’re behind.
As we mentioned above, Bozja shares some similarities to Eureka, but it’s very different in feel and purpose. Boiled down, aside from hopefully being fun, Bozja serves two pragmatic purposes for players.

Second, it’s where you can obtain your relic weapon, new armor, and get cosmetics. The relic is a powerful weapon that you can upgrade to be nearly just as, if not more powerful, than anything you would get from the raids without needing a hardcore group to get it. It also will glow and look super cool, so there’s that.
