What are field notes? (Usage + Locations) – FandomSpot

Field Notes are a type of item introduced with the Bozjan Southern Front that give you Field Records when used. These records contain information about notable characters involved in the storyline of Save the Queen: Blades of Gunnhildr.

To view the field records, you must first use the field note item in your inventory. Then open your menu and go to the Collections section.

Field Notes can also be obtained from Zadnor, the second area unlocked by progressing through the Save the Queen quest line.

Get field notes

If you participate in the Bozjan Southern Front, you have a chance to get Field Notes.

There are several ways to do this, but since there are specific field notes that can only be obtained through a specific method, you will do all of them if you want your records to be complete.


These are random battles that take place on the Bozja map and are very similar to the FATEs found in the rest of FFXIV.

Just like FATEs, anyone in the zone can join battles and will be rewarded based on their contributions.

Skirmishes on the Bozjan Southern Front / FFXIV

Critical Engagements

Critical engagements are also random encounters within Bozjan’s southern front, but are slightly different from skirmishes.

The most obvious difference would be that these fights are much more difficult. They’re more like the Trials you’ll find in the Duty Finder.

Critical Engagement Recruitment / FFXIV

Next would be the number of participants in a critical engagement. Although it’s also open to everyone in the zone, only a certain number of players are allowed to participate.

The maximum number of players that can join is different for each critical engagement.


Duels are similar to Critical Engagements, but are 1v1 battles between you and an opponent. They are triggered upon completion of certain critical missions.

To qualify for a duel, you must participate in the critical engagement that triggers it without dying or being hit by any of the AoE attacks. If you disconnect while engaged, you will also be disqualified from a duel.

If multiple players qualify and accept a duel, only one will be randomly selected to attack the enemy. Players who are not selected gain Notoriety, increasing your chances of being selected the next time you qualify for a duel.

Your Notoriety will be reset after you are selected for a Duel.

Castrum Lacus Litore and The Dalriada

The Dalriada, Zadnor

These are special critical missions that take you to instanced areas and work similar to Alliance Raids. However, a maximum of 48 players can participate and the group composition is not limited to the usual setups.

To qualify for Castrum Lacus Litore, you must reach a Resistance Rank of 10 and complete The Lady of Blades quest. To qualify for the Dalriada, you must reach Resistance Rank 25 and complete the A New Field quest.

Castrum Lacus Litore occurs in the southern front of Bozjan, while Dalriada occurs in Zadnor.

Delubrum Reginae

Sjeros in Gangos / FFXIV
Syros in Gangos

As another instanced area, Delubrum Reginae also resembles an Alliance raid.

As with Castrum Lacus Litore and The Dalriada, party compositions are not limited to any particular format, but the maximum number of players allowed in them is 24 instead of 48.

In order to access Delubrum Reginae, you must complete the “Fit for a Queen” side quest from Bajsaljen in Gangos (X:6.5, Y:5.8). Once you’ve completed the quest, you can queue up for the instance by speaking to Sjeros in Gangos (X:5.5, Y:5.4).

What to do with duplicate field notes?

Gabriel α Mount / FFXIV

If you spend more time in Bozjan southern front and in Zadnor, you will definitely come across duplicate field notes. These can be exchanged for lockers at the Resistance Historian NPC in both areas.

The Resistance Historian is located in Utyas Aegis (X:15.1, Y:29.2) on the southern front of Bozjan and in Camp Vrdelnis (X:34.6, Y:34.9) in Zadnor.

Resistance Historian NPC / FFXIV

Lockers are items that can be opened by the locksmith NPCs in both zones. Inside these crates you’ll find a variety of different items, including glamor items, chocobo armor, minions, and even the Gabriel α mount.

The Resistance Locksmiths can be found at:

  • Utyas Aegis (X:15.2, Y:29.8) in Bozja and
  • The South Plateau (X:34.9, Y:34.3) in Zadnor
