Square Enix

In Final Fantasy XIV, you have to do quests to unlock access to dungeons. That hasn't changed in the new "Stormblood" expansion pack. These quests are often tied to the main story, but Shisui of the Violet Tides isn't. Here's how to unlock it.

Shisui of the Violet Tides is a level-63 dungeon in Final Fantasy XIV's "Stormblood" expansion. To unlock it, head to the Ruby Seas and talk to an NPC named Kurenai to get a sidequest called The Palace of Lost Souls. This isn't part of the main quest, so you'll have to seek it out yourself.

Thankfully, the quest itself is simple. Just talk to the people the game says to talk to and you'll eventually unlock access to the dungeon. To see a full walkthrough of the dungeon, check out the video above.
