The Sweat emote is unlocked by using an item called “Ballroom Etiquette – Excessive Petticoats”. You can purchase this item from the Confederate Custodian in The Ruby Sea (X:21.3, Y:9.4) for 10 Empyrean Potsherds.

You’ll obtain Empyrean Potsherds by going through Heaven-on-High. This is an instanced duty that functions almost exactly the same way as Palace of the Dead.

To perform the sweat emote, enter /sweat into your chat bar. The phrase “You wipe your brow” will appear in chat as you perform this emote.

Heaven-on-High is unlocked by completing the blue side quest “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” from Hamakaze in The Ruby Sea (X:6.2, Y:11.7).

However, you’ll need to reach floor 50 in Palace of the Dead and complete the Stormblood Main Scenario Quest “Tide Goes In, Imperials Go Out” before this quest becomes available.

“Knocking on Heaven’s Door” is a pretty simple quest where all you do is follow the quest markers and speak to NPCs. Once the quest is done, you can enter Heaven-On-High by speaking to Kyusei in the Ruby Sea (X:21.4, Y:9.2).

Just like with Palace of the Dead, you can enter Heaven-on-High with a party or queue up to be grouped with other players.

You can also step up to the challenge of taking on this piece of content solo.


How To Obtain Empyrean Potsherds

While going through Heaven-on-High, you’ll have a chance to obtain treasure known as the Accursed Hoard. Discovering these treasures will add a haloed sack to your inventory.

When you exit Heaven-on-High, take these sacks to the Confederate Appraiser in the Ruby Sea (X:21.3, Y:9.2) to reveal their contents. You have a small chance of obtaining Empyrean Potsherds when appraising these sacks.

You can also obtain potsherds by defeating bosses within Heaven-on-High. Hiruko, the boss on floor 30, will always drop 1 Empyrean Potsherd upon his defeat.

Since players usually spam floors 21-30 as an alternate means of leveling jobs, you can farm your potsherds by repeatedly fighting Hiruko.
