FFXIV: ARR – Overview of Mounts & How to Get Them

About Mounts in FFXIV: A Realm Reborn

Most larger MMOs (and a handful of others) provide players with a set of mounts. These are obtainable creatures (or in some games vehicles) that can be used to move around the open world faster. In Final Fantasy 14 there are a total of 7 mounts available for players to get as of right now. Below we have listed each mount along with an image and what is required to obtain it.

FFXIV ARR Mounts

The available mounts right now are:

  • Ahriman
  • Coeurl
  • Company Chocobo
  • Goobbue
  • Legacy Chocobo
  • Magitek Armor
  • Unicorn

Ahriman

FFXIV ARR Ahriman Mount
Ahriman is a flying, one-eyed creature. He is only obtained by staying subscribed to FFXIV: ARR for a total of 90 days in a row. This means you’ll get him once you’ve paid for a subscription 2 times (the first 30 days are included free with the purchase of the game). This is part of Square Enix’s Veteran’s Rewards Program.

NOTE: Ahriman does not technically fly. Instead he just hovers above the ground when you ride him.

Coeurl

FFXIV ARR Coeurl Mount

Coeurl is a rather magnificent-looking beast that somewhat resembles a cheetah. It has long whiskers that look like tails that come off either side of its face. The Coeurl mount is only available for players that chose to purchase the collector’s edition (CE) of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

Company Chocobo

FFXIV ARR Company Chocobo Mount
The company chocobo is the first mount you’ll acquire in the game. You get it by joining one of the three Grand Companies once you progress through the story quests and reach level 20 or so. You’ll have to spend 2000 GC seals to buy it. While they are mostly the same each of the company chocobos (The Immortal Flames, The Order of the Twin Adder, The Malestrom) do look slightly different due to cultural styling.

Goobbue

The Goobbue are rather large creature that are seen in various areas. They stand very tall, are mostly grey, and covered in what looks like moss and plants. The Goobbue mount was only available to players that stayed around during FFXIV 1.0 and is no longer obtainable.

Legacy Chocobo

FFXIV ARR Legacy Chocobo Mount

The Legacy Chocobo is one of the coolest looking chocobo mounts in the game. Unfortunately this mount is only available to players that have acquired legacy status by staying with the game during the 1.0 version. Legacy players get a slightly lower subscription fee, got early access to the game, and a few other perks.

Magitek Armor

FFXIV ARR Magitek Armor Mount

Magitek Armor, as some dedicated FF fans might remember, was a large, mechanical suit that was in Final Fantasy 6. The Magitek suit has made its return in the form of a mount in FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. It’s large, it looks incredibly badass, and it’s only obtainable once you complete the main story line in its entirety.

Unicorn

FFXIV ARR Unicorn Mount
Wanna prance around in-game on a majestic, magical steed that’ll make you look like the most hardened, badass adventurer in all of Eorzea? Then you’ve just GOT to get the seemingly out of place Unicorn mount that’s available in FFXIV: ARR. This beautiful horse with a horn can be obtained by completing the level 30 Conjurer quest called Unicorn Power.

Make your claim to fame by leveling up faster than most other players, getting the best gear before anyone else, learning how to become an unstoppable force in PvP and more by checking out this in-depth FFXIV guide that’ll help you make tons of progress very quickly!

    What about Sun Drakes? I’ve seen maybe 2 people using them as mounts.
