How to get Thavnairian onions

There is more than one way to get the Onions. However, most of the methods involved to get these onions need a good amount of time to obtain them. The seeds of the onion cannot be procured from an NPC, you need to breed them. All of the methods have their advantages and disadvantages. It entirely depends upon you which method suits you best out of them. The ways to get the onions are:

  • Free Companies
  • Quests
  • Farming

Free Companies

In the case of Free companies in Final Fantasy 14, there are chances that you might find some Thavnairian onions already there for you. That is so because other players are well aware that to get Chocobo leveling higher they need at least 10 Onion seeds to max out in their level and they also know how time-consuming it is to grow these onions. So, most free companies are in the process of breeding them. You may ask why they do it? The reason is simple. Having a higher level Chocobo can help them get additional quests and for that, they need Thavnairian Onions.


‘Landing a Stable Job’ and ‘A Hunter’s True Nature’ are the two quests which offer Thavnairian Onions in the current scape.

Landing a Stable Job

To start the ‘Landing a Stable Job’ quest you are required to complete the Main Scenario quest ‘The Better Half’ at level 50. Once you have completed it then you will get a side quest from it in the Ishigard. At around coordinates (x,y:6,9) you can pick it up from Mathye in The Jeweled Crozier.

A Hunter’s True Nature

In the second quest titled ‘A Hunter’s True Nature’ there are three side which you are required to complete. The three side quests are ‘Garbage Duty’, ‘Pest Control’ and ‘A Step in the Right Direction’. You will be able to Visit Hevoix in the Tailfeather at coordinates (x,y:32,23) only when you complete the above three side quests. In Hevoix you will be able to complete the quest and get your onions as well.


The last option to lay your hands on the Thavnairian Onions is to farm them yourselves. Farming the onions can take a few weeks and not only a few weeks but also you will need to keep an eye on them as well on a daily basis. You have to be a regular player in order to adopt this method. Otherwise, the farms and crops might get damaged.

 However, if you are determined to get the Thavnairian onion by farming in the game then you need to cross breed few plants together to get them. At the start of the things, you need to cross breed Krakka Root with Mirror Apple and get Curiel Root out of them.

Then you need to get the Nymeia Lillies out of cross breeding Almonds and Mandrakes. At last, you need to the thus obtained cross bred Curiel Roots and Nymeia Lillies to cross breed again to get the onions.

Then and only then you can begin farming the onions and look after them until they are good for a yield.

Use of FFXIV Thavnairian Onions

The problem with Chocobo is that they can’t be leveled higher after they reach level 10 until they are fed Thavnairian Onions. As hinted earlier you need to feed them one Onion and they will grow one level. They will max out at level 20. That means they need at least ten onions from level 10 to 20 to reach at the maximum level.

The Chocobo is more like tanks and they are great at battle too. The other properties of Chocobo are that they do have healing abilities as well. They can even challenge and damage enemies those are at slightly higher level than you. So, it is important to have a Chocobo in the team and level him up.


Conclusively speaking if you are not into Chocobo then you can give a miss to the onions. However, if you are playing Chocobo then the onions are indispensable and you do need them. Hope our guide could highlight the importance of the Thavnairian Onions and could provide you with some hint where and how to get these onions. Thank you for visiting our post.
