FFXIV Dawntrail is the fifth expansion for the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV. The DLC introduces not only a new land and two new classes, but also prolongs the main storyline. One of the numerous MSQs is particularly difficult for Final Fantasy fans to deal with, and we're talking about Leafing Through the Past. Our guide will explain how to solve puzzles related to Braziers and Masks.

FFXIV Dawntrail – Braziers and Masks Explained


Leafing Through the Past is a mission consisting of two difficult puzzles to solve. The first one requires lighting up specific Braziers. There is a few to pick from and the instructions are not very clear. You must light up the following Braziers in order to move on:

  1. Brazier of Eternal Summer,
  2. Brazier of Calculations.

All you have to do is to approach the mentioned Braziers, interact with them and confirm the lighting option. Once you've managed to deal with them, you'll be able to progress the quest further, and enter the chamber with masks.


The requirement to complete this part of the quest is to answer correctly how many different masks are in the room. The challenge seems simple, however, it is not the case, as not all of them are clearly seen from where you will be standing at the very beginning.

To make it easier for you and save you the time involved in exploring the area, we will write right away that the correct answer to the question is 4!
