FF14's Step Dance Emote is earned by finishing the Level 14 quest “Good for What Ales You”. To start the quest, head to Limsa Lominsa and find a specific NPC at Hawker's Rest. but before the NPC shows up, you'll need to finish a prerequisite quest in the main storyline.

First, you'll need to complete your prerequisite Level 14 story quest (a.k.a. “Main Scenario Quests”) which will depend on your character's starting area:

  • A Mizzenmast Repast (Limsa Lominsa)
    • Travel to the Upper Decks and speak with Baderon (11, 11)
  • A Royal Reception (Ul'dah)
    • Go to the Steps of Nald and start the quest with Momodi (11.6, 9.6)
  • Renewing the Covenant (Gridania)
    • Enter New Gridania and find Mother Miounne (11.7, 13.5)

Once you've finished the prerequisite quest, go to Limsa Lominsa and head to the Lower Decks. Upon entering, open your map and zoom in to find Hawker's Round, where you'll meet an NPC named “Dodozan” (7.4, 12.4). Accept the quest “Good for What Ales You”, which rewards 2415 EXP and the “Step Dance” emote.

From there, the quest is fairly straightforward; find a cask of ale for Dodozan's undisclosed client to get the rewards. Here are the complete steps for the “Good for What Ales You” sidequest:

  1. Accept the quest from Dodozan at the Lower Decks.
  2. Head south/teleport to the Fisherman's Guild to speak with 3 fishermen, namely:
    • Preoccupied Porter (7.4, 15.3)
    • Affable Angler (7.8, 14.8)
    • Small-boned Seller (8.1, 14.9)
  3. Board the docked ship nearby and get on the deck to speak with the young Executioner.
  4. Return to Hawker's Rest to give the payment to Dodozan.
