How to Get Seafarer’s Cowries in FFXIV Island Sanctuary


Here’s how to get and use Seafarer’s Cowries in FFXIV.

The highly anticipated Island Sanctuary mode is finally live in Final Fantasy XIV, allowing players to decorate their very own island getaway where they can grow crops and raise animals. There are also a couple of new currencies to keep track of here. Here’s how to get Seafarer’s Cowries in FFXIV Island Sanctuary.

Getting Seafarer’s Cowries in FFXIV Island Sanctuary

Seafarer’s Cowries are a new type of currency exclusive to the Island Sanctuary mode in Final Fantasy XIV, and getting them is also very straightforward. Simply put, you’ll get Seafarer’s Cowries just by completing visions in your Island Sanctuary.

Think of visions as Island Sanctuary-specific quests. You’ll be able to take on new tasks from the various NPCs you meet in the Sanctuary as they guide you towards new goals like building a workshop, tilling the land for crops, and capturing animals. Each time you achieve one of these goals and complete a vision, you’ll be rewarded with Seafarer’s Cowries.

Basically, the more you develop your island and the more advanced it becomes, the more Seafarer’s Cowries you’ll get. With that in mind, we recommend trying to improve your island as much as possible to get the most out of it.

What Seafarer’s Cowries Are For

If you go to your cozy cabin in the Island Sanctuary, you’ll be able to speak with the Horrendous Hoarder NPC who allows you to purchase items with your Cowries. Select the Seafarer’s Cowries option to see what they have for sale.

At the time of writing, these are the only items you can purchase with them:

  • Isle Explorer’s Hat: 2,000 Cowries
  • Isle Explorer’s Shirt: 3,000 Cowries

It’s likely that we’ll get more items in the future as the mode expands, but for now, your goal would be to get all of the new fashion items with the Seafarer’s Cowries you’ve saved up.
