There is a whole new set of artifact gear in Final Fantasy 14 Endwalker, many players wonder how and where to find the them. The good news is that it's pretty easy to get them in-game. Here's how to unlock all Artifact Armor in FFXIV Endwalker.
What is Artifact Armor in Final Fantasy 14?
Artifact armor in Final Fantasy 14 is usually an armor item that visually reflects how a Job would classically look in a JRPG. The artifact items for every job at an iLevel 560 are the best possible currently in the game, except the Moonward Armor (iLevel 570).
How to Unlock Artifact Armor in Endwalker?
1). To unlock and use the Endwalker Artifact Armor, players have to be level 89 with a Job level of 89 for at least one job. This is one level below Endwalker's level cap of 90.
2). Next, complete the MSQ (Main Scenario Quest) called "A Bold Decision," which is given to players by Tataru. This is immediately after the events in your second trip to Labyrinthos and right before unlocking the final zone.
3). Upon completing this quest, you can go back to Old Sharlayan and speak with Varsarudh (X:11, Y:9) to purchase your Artifact gear.
4). You will be able to obtain a full set of left-side gear (Hat, Body, Hands, Legs, and Feet) and a Weapon. All of these items will be item level 560.
5). When you buy your Artifact gear, they'll all be synced to level 89, and their full item level will only be unlocked when you hit level 90. You do not need to do anything extra to receive this bonus — it applies automatically at 90.

3). Fill her up with it, and you've officially unlocked dyeing.
4). Go to Mor Dhona and locate Alys at coordinates (X:21.0) (Y:8.0).
5). Alys wants you to chat with a tempestuous fellow named Eginolf, who can be found at Rowena's House of Splendors.
