To reach the land of Tural in the Dawntrail expansion, you'll first need to start the new Main Scenario questline for it. To do that, you'll want to head to Old Sharlayan, where the storyline for the Endwalker expansion came to an emotional end.

Once there, check your Main Scenario Quest notification at the top left corner of your screen, if you have it enabled. The first quest for Dawntrail is "A New World to Explore", and you'll need to go to the Baldesion Annex, which is an easy teleport from Old Sharlayan's Main Aetheryte.

Speak to the Lalafell NPC Ojika Tsunjika to pick up the Level 90 quest, and you'll be sent to find and speak with your Vieran comrade Erenville in the Main Hall. We won't spoil what follows from there onward, but essentially this quest will set you on your fateful boat trip to Tural alongside the eccentric Wuk Lamat and your Scion companions.

Once in Tural, if and when you need to travel back to other regions in Eorzea for other quests and activities, you'll need to attune to at least one of the Turalian Main Aetherytes. Once done, you will have teleportation available from the continent. We highly suggest stocking up on Aetheryte Tickets to ease the gil cost of long-distance teleports, which you can easily get with Centurio Seals.

Enjoy the story of Dawntrail, try out Viper or Pictomancer, and all the adventures that lie ahead!
