FFXIV Baby Bomb Pet

Concept art of the baby bomb minion from Final Fantasy XIV.

Minions are vanity pets that can be summoned by the player in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. They are usually baby or toy versions of existing characters, monsters or objects from Hydaelyn. While most serve no specific purpose other than vanity, some can be used for other reasons such as providing illumination.[1] Some minions have special interactions with minions from other players, such as dancing or fighting.

UsageEdit

Minions can be summoned or dismissed at any time, without having to wait for any recast timer. The only exceptions being when the player is on duty or has a summoned companion. Only one minion can be summoned at a time.

To obtain the summoning action for a minion, the player must use the corresponding item for it, which can be acquired through diverse means such as beast-tribe quests, crafting, FATEs, Grand Companies' seals exchange, market boards, NPC shops, quests, treasure hunting, ventures, etc. Once the player learns the summoning action, it will never be lost and it can be used by all of the player's classes or jobs.

While minions do not generate any enmity, neither will they participate in battle. If the player is KO'd, the minion will simply wander off back to wherever it rests until the player calls upon it again.

The action Minion Roulette, which was introduced on patch 2.16[2], allows the player to summon a random minion (from the ones the player possess). This action becomes available after the player acquires at least two minions.

Minion GuideEdit

Minion guide

An in-game screenshot of the Minion Guide.

Since the introduction of patch 2.3: Defenders of Eorzea a minion guide was introduced to the game. [3] The guide lists all of the minion summoning actions the player has acquired in a log-like presentation. Its purpose is to further expand the game's lore, in this case mostly about the minions themselves, and to serve as a collector's reference.

For each minion entry the following is included:

  • The minion's name.
  • The minion's icon.
  • The minion's description.
  • The minion's behavior (Independent, Obedient or Stationary).
  • The minion's footprints.
  • The minion's summoning action description (when hovering over the action icon).
  • A quote by an NPC regarding the minion or its kin (when hovering over the minion icon).

The player can also check the total amount of owned minions in the guide.

List of minionsEdit

Name Icon Minion Guide Description Action Description Minion Guide Quote Minion Interactions
Baby Bat Baby bat1 Nonoroon, resident junkmonger at Memeroon's Trading Post came up with the idea for capturing and selling baby bats one day while raiding caves for bat eggs...of which he could not find any. Summon your baby bat minion. Has yet to acquire a taste for blood. Even ate a wing off one afore I made up my mind up to climb down the wall.
-Ahldfoet
Baby Behemoth Baby behemoth1 Obtainable in Ul'dah's Sapphire Avenue Exchange for a fistful of coin and a smile, the pedigree of this baby beast is questionable at best. While displaying many behemoth-like features - a sleek violet hide, hungry eyes, and two polished horns - its squealing is not unlike a boar at slaughter. Summon your baby behemoth. We can only hope his mother doesn't come looking for him. Disaster follows man like a behemoth chasing a butterfly.
-Chechezan
Baby Bun Baby bun1 For those wondering on the ill effects of inhaling spores released by common funguars, according to the Encyclopedia Eorzea (third edition), funguar spores "befoul the body's humours and claim control of an individual's very soul, rendering them a mindless thrall." Summon your baby bun minion. Tastes great on salads and in stews. You mushroom-headed, spindly-legged, spore-spewing abominations!
-Gabineaux
Baby Opo-opo Baby opo-opo icon1 A daring rescue from the clutches of the goblin hero Brayflox's minions is the only thing separating this opo-opo from a life of swinging free from tree to tree through the lush jungles of the Longstop...and forever trudging in the wake of the brave adventurer who "saved" him. Summon your baby opo-opo minion. The only thing it loves more than you is a juicy sprite apple. These beans are covered in opo-opo droppings!
-Mun Tuy Cellarkeep
Emote: /beckon will cause it to sit on your shoulder (or head, if Lalafell).
Baby Raptor Baby raptor1 Taking a hint from goblin merchants who raise raptors to serve as beasts of burden, a shopkeep from the village of Boughbury has begun hatching raptor eggs of his own (stolen from nearby nests). One can only hope the mother raptors are not as clever as the shopkeep thinks he is. Summon your baby raptor minion. Luckily for you, his teeth haven't all grown in...yet. By the gods...This raptor is sublime!
-Nonopesa
Beady Eye Beady eye1 One of the most outlandish theories recently posed by scholars of the void, is that ahrimans do not reproduce by typical sexual means, but rather by shedding tears which eventually grow into new creatures. Summon your beady eye minion. That feeling you get sometimes that you are being watched? More often than not it is him. Black scorpion to sharpen one's wit; ahriman membrane for the mind.
-Severian
Bite-Sized Pudding Bite-sized pudding1 Unable to reproduce, puddings increase their number solely via mitosis. Because of this, it is widely believed that all of Eorzea's puddings descended from a single entity - a proto-pudding, if you will. This, however, leaves us with the question: whence did the first pudding come from? Summon your bite-sized pudding minion. Not intended for consumption. A talking...pudding?
-You
Black Chocobo Chick Black chocobo chick1 This poor chocobo chick was as yellow as an ear of millioncorn before one day being doused in black ink by a random passerby bedecked in silver accessories. Try as the chocobokeep might, none were able to remove the taint, and thus the realm's first black chocobo was born. Summon your black chocobo chick minion. Rumors about her being able to fly are completely unfounded...or are they? There is no finer feel than that of a chocobo between your legs.
-L'dhakya
Bluebird Bluebird1 Fortunate to hatch before being eaten by lizards. Unfortunate to fall from its nest before learning to fly. Fortunate to land in an empty treasure coffer. Unfortunate to still be in said coffer as it is filled with booty and locked up again. Fortunate to be plundered...by you. Summon your bluebird minion. Known to retroactively bring good fortune to those who have already experienced good fortune. The disbelieving cries of our foe will be as the sweetest birdsong.
-Yadovv Gah
Emote: /beckon will cause it to sit on your shoulder (or head, if Lalafell).
Buffalo Calf Buffalo calf1 When the Scions of the Seventh Dawn began clearing out the Waking Sands in preparation for the move to Revenant's Toll, this wide-eyed calk was discovered hiding in a disused linen closet. Though an inquiry was made by the Antecedent herself, it is still not known who was keeping the beast. Summon your buffalo calf minion. Milk-fed until tender and juicy. Not that anyone would ever think of eating him. I made the grievous error of visiting a great buffalo with a handsaw.
-Godbert
Cactuar Cutting Cactuar cutting1 Hab, loneliest zombie in the realm, is certain that this cactuar cutting taken from his trusty companion Sabotendrick. Or if not, then most positively Sabotendred. What he does not know,is that it is, in fact, from the oft forgotten Sabotendale. Summon your cactuar cutting minion. Take care not to suffer 1,000 points of damage...to your heart. The interior of its arm holds a surprising amount of fresh, drinkable water.
-Common Knowledge
Cait Sith Doll Cait sith doll1 The clockwork rendition of an enigmatic cat spirit from the pages of Midlander mythology, Goldsmiths' Guild guildmaster Serendipity crafted this life-like figuring to bring joy to those children who were orphaned in the Calamity. Summon your Cait Sith doll. The ever-extended tail helps the kitten keep her balance. What may be a few to you was everything to those who died...
-Cait Sith
Cherry Bomb Cherry bomb1 To maintain the white-hot temperature within their cores, bombs will feed upon almost any combustible material, including wood, charcol, ceruleum, fire crystals, even dragon peppers. Summon your cherry bomb minion - a miniature recreation of a voidsent bomb, created via the thaumaturgical rendering of umbrally charged aetherial energy. Guaranteed never to self-destruct, or your gil back. Brilliant bombs - breathtaking, beautiful, brilliant!
-Ba Go
Chigoe Larva Chigoe larva1 Chirurgeons of the fallen city of Gelmorra once used chigoes to leech the dark humours of the infirm until it was realized the patients were contracting additional maladies as a result of the treatment. Summon your chigoe larva minion. This tiny vilekin takes the blood pact with his master very seriously. What am I going to do with a pile of dead vilekin?
-Waltheof
Coblyn Larva Coblyn larva1 Coblyns will lay their eggs near ore deposits so that when the larvae emerge, they will have a ready supply of nourishment to form their protective outer carapaces. This is a slow process which involves dousing the ore in digestive fluid, waiting for it to clarify, then ingesting the ooze. Summon your coblyn larva minion. Too dangerous to allow to grow any larger...too adorable to condemn to the furnace. The lads go through gear faster'n a coblyn chewin' on a chunk of mythril.
-Wawarukka
Coeurl Kitten Coeurl kitten icon1 Coeurls are extremely proud and defiant creatures, even when young. Faced with insurmountable odds, a coeurl will rarely shy away from a fight, choosing rather to perish in combat than run. This characteristic keeps coeurl numbers low, but ensures the strength of those who survive. Summon your coeurl kitten minion. It will still be several summers before his trademark whiskers grow out. Coeurl got your tongue?
-Wilred
Demon Brick Demon brick1 For many years, modern archaeologists did not understand how a seemingly primitive civilization without clockwork or steam technology could build the massive stone structures of Amdapor. Animated bricks, such as the one that has chosen to follow you, may be the missing link. Summon your demon brick minion. We are all better off not knowing what arcane magicks animate this ordinary stone block. Underneath this gear. I'm built like a brick privy!
-Chachai
Dust Bunny Dust bunny1 It is not fully known why spriggans hoard precious rocks and minerals, though scholars would have us believe that it is the rocks and minerals which are hoarding the spriggans, hence the creatures' scientific classification as soulkin. Summon your dusty bunny minion. Despite the striking similarities, spriggans are not related to rabbits. But they have been known to eat them. Between the four of us, surely we can outsmart a few rogue spriggans.
-Augustinel
Eggplant Knight Eggplant knight icon1 House Eggplant has faithfully served the royal line of Tomato kings for eighteen generations, never once betraying the throne...until, that is, the knight of the nineteenth generation laid eyes upon the fair Mandragora Queen. Summon your Eggplant Knight minion. His childhood dream to become a wizard was frowned upon by his overbearing father. If you eat too many of this vegetable, you will turn into one.
-Common Wives' Tale
Flame Hatchling Flame hatchling1 Raised by a flame private from an egg found abandoned in the company stables he was charged with cleaning, this adorable fledgling is a symbol of new beginnings for the Immortal Flames. Summon your flame hatchling minion. Not more than a fortnight out of the shell, but his blood already runs Immortal Flames black. Chocobo dander can be a mite ripe.
-Chocobokeep
Fledgling Apkallu Fledgling apkallu1 While the hatchlings of other flightless cloudkin have been observed covered in a dull brown coat of down when they emerge from their eggs, apkallus enter the world covered in the same vivid green plumage they will bear for their entire lives. Summon your fledgling apkallu minion. Will follow you until you give him a fish. Will continue to follow you you after being given a fish. Nesting hens do not spear a failed egg thief a score and half times.
-Frandelont Raimdelle
Fledgling Dodo Fledgling dodo1 Dodos mature extremely fast, going from fledgling to full-grown fryer in but a few short moons. This, coupled with the fact an adult female can lay up to seven eggs a sennight, makes this particular cloudkin the perfect option for feeding the hungry masses. Summon your fledgling dodo minion. Properly trained not to eructate, regurgitate, expectorate, or flatulate. Lightning Drools over the Bismarck's Delightful Grilled Dodo!
-The Harbor Herald
Garlic Jester Garlic jester icon1 The son of a traveling mummer who performed under the name Garlic Star, the jester swore he would never follow in the footsteps of his father. However, after being deemed too malodorous to serve in the royal guard, he swallowed his pride and fell back on the only trade he knew. Summon your Garlic Jester minion. Every breath you take will act as a reminder that your pungent pal is right behind you. And this irresistible aroma... Mmmmmmmmm....
-Ingham
Gigantpole Giantpole1 Over countless generations, the gigantoads of Thanalan have adapted to the arid climes by taking on traits not seen in their cousins to the north, such as thick membranes to keep their skin hydrated out of water, and a set of fins which act as wings to propel them over land. Summon your gigantpole minion. Yes, it can survive for hours on end without any water, and yes, it can fly. Your argument is invalid. These toads are huge, which means they have huge guts.
-Hamon
Goobbue Sproutling Goobbue sproutling1 To achieve their cyclopean size, goobbues must maintain a daily diet of several times their own weight. Luckily, the seedkin are not fincky eaters, and will consume almost anything that cannot outrun them. If rumors are to be believed, this includes Lalafells. Summon your goobbue sproutling minion. Has been known to attack kittens for no apparent reason. These gobbues are wont to devour anything and everything.
-Aileen
Gravel Golem Gravel golem1 Mage-controlled golems were in such wide use by the end of the Fifth Astral Era, that entire battles were waged by armies comprised of nothing but the lifeless soulkin. This recreation, however, is nothing but a standard model #001 mammet outfitted with simple gravel plating. Summon your gravel golem minion. Only you stand between it and a hard place. Gummice pollums? I fear I'm not familiar with them.
-Yhom Epocan
Infant Imp Baby imp1 Scholars believe there are three ways in which voidsent can make the journey from their realm to ours - tearing a hole in the aether on their side, having a hole torn for them on our side, or stumbling into a randomly occurring hole, the latter being the most common for imps. Summon your infant imp minion. Hopes that one day, he will rule the seven hells. But for now, your backside will do. This bastard's got some nasty spells!
-Stalwart Swordsman
Kidragora Kidragora One must take care when harvesting mandragoras, for if the roots are disturbed they will emit a high-pitched scream powerful enough to shatter glass over a malm away. Summon your kidragora minion. Even in space, everyone can hear this seedkin scream. When little is known about them, what is known tends to be disturbing.
-Eorzean Naturalist
King Tomato King tomato icon1 After the flames of the Calamity rendered Lord Tomato a king without a kingdom, the ruby red regent packed up his seeds and set out on a journey to find a new land to rule. He currently roams the realm recruiting any taproot, tuber, or corm who will follow his standard. Summon your King Tomato minion. Has issued a royal decree for the public defenestration of any and all who mistakenly claim the king is a vegetable. It is apparently a rogue, outcast from its kin, a stranger in a strange land.
-Tomaj
Magic Broom Magic bloom icon1 While you may not hear many of the realm's mages admit it, magicking a household broom to become a self-propelled sweeping servitor (albeit one which does very little actual cleaning) is far more complicated than it sounds, requiring no fewer than seven cants of binding. Summon your magic broom minion. For safety reasons, do not fall asleep while it is at work. A lancer who fears to attack is naught but a man holding a pole.
-Ywain
Mammet #001 Mammet 001 The standard frill-free #001 model is not only the best-selling mammet on the market, but is the blueprint on which all other clockwork servitors are based. Summon your mammet #001 minion - a fully operational clockwork puppet built in a joint effort by the Alchemists' and Goldsmiths' Guilds. Mammets can't even taste food!
-Serendipity
Mammet #003G Mammet 003g1 Designed to be a standard bearer in Order of the Twin Adder company parades, these hand-crafted automatons were soon decommissioned due to the fact that their small stature ensured that no one could see the flags they carried. Summon your mammet #003G minion - a fully operational clockwork puppet built for the Order of the Twin Adder. Feelings! Maybe she just doesn't feel like part of the team!?
-Wedge
Mammet #003L Mammet 003l1 Designed to be a standard bearer in Maelstrom company parades, these hand-crafted automatons were soon decommissioned due to the fact that their small stature ensured that no one could see the flags they carried. Summon your mammet #003L minion - a fully operational clockwork puppet built for the Maelstrom. Feelings! Maybe she just doesn't feel like part of the team!?
-Wedge
Mammet #003U Mammet 003u1 Designed to be a standard bearer in Immortal Flames company parades, these hand-crafted automatons were soon decommissioned due to the fact that their small stature ensured that no one could see the flags they carried. Summon your mammet #003U minion - a fully operational clockwork puppet built for the Immortal Flames. Feelings! Maybe she just doesn't feel like part of the team!?
-Wedge
Mandragora Queen Mandragora queen icon1 Destined to a life with a man she did not love, nary a night passed when the Mandragora Queen did not dream of throwing herself into the sea's eternal embrace...until, that is, she laid eyes on the noble Eggplant Knight. Though wed to the Tomato King in a move to strengthen the bond of Houses Tomato and Mandragora, the queen longs to steal away with her one true love - the Eggplant Knight. What will become of this forbidden romance!? Summon the Mandragora Queen minion today and find out! I want to be waist-deep in little white mandragora limbs!
-Yellowjacket
Mini Mole Mini mole1 Snatched from its hill while still young by infamous naturalist Marcette Manne, this poor creature has suffered countless experiments filled with endless pokings, proddings, potations and panaceas. Compared to that, following an adventurer around all day is a veritable vacation. Summon your mini mole minion. When not dining on a protein-rich diet of earthworms and grubs, he dreams of making mountains. Hear me, you mole bastards? I am steel!
-Eager Red Swallow
Miniature Minecart Miniature minecart icon1 Despite adamant claims by Amajina & Sons Mineral Concern that their donation of over five score carts to the orphans of Stone's Throw was a simple act of charity, opponents of the guild insist it was a scheme to recruit inexpensive child labor for Thanalan's myriad mines. Summon your miniature minecart minion. Best when ridden in abandoned mines and temples of doom. Mines mine! Mines all miiiiiiiine!
-Biggy the Spriggan
Minion of Light Minion of light icon1 Ancient records show that almost every Astral Era has had its own Warrior of Light - brave souls who appeared before forthcoming disasters to unite the people of that time... only to disappear once again as catastrophe rained down from the heavens. Summon your Minion of Light and make true the prophecy: "When Darkness veils the world, three Minions of Light shall come." Next you'll be telling me you're one of the Warriors of Light.
-Mother Miounne
Minute Mindflayer Minute mindflayer icon1 Similar to voidsent dullahan, mindflayers also lack a corporeal from and must possess a host to be able to exert force on our realm. Whereas the dullahan, however, are limited to the possession of inorganic objects such as steel, mindflayers tend to prefer the dead as their vessels. Summon your minute mindflayer minion. Delights folk with its cuteness even as it fills them with an inexplicable sense of dread. It has a grisly penchant for sucking out the brains of men.
-Frandelont Raimdelle
Model Vanguard Model vanguard1 Part of the Guildmaster Series, this high-quality replica is so exact in its rendition of the vanguard's build that Garlemald has banned the item's import into the empire's outlying provinces, for fear the data gleaned from it will be used by rebel forces still active in these lands. Summon your model vanguard minion. An exact 1:9 scale replica of a cerulean-powered magitek vanguard (imperial pilot action figure not included). I'd sooner face a vanguard while naked as my nameday!
-Flame Private
Morbol Seedling Morbol bulb1 It is in fashion amongst wealthy Ul'dahn merchants and nobles to bring morbol seedlings to banquets, so that the upper crust might inhale the seedkin's "boot-like" bad breath to induce vomiting, allowing them to engorge themselves for the duration of the gatherings. Summon your morbol seedling minion...if you think you can stand his breath. Did a morbol just empty its innards? I feel ill...
-Imperial Soldier
Naughty Nanka Naughty nanka icon1 Instead of laying her eggs in a pond or river where they might be devoured by predators, the ninki nanka female deposits her offspring upon the back of the father, who then carries and protects the brood until it is ready to face the world on its own. Unless, however, one falls off. Summon your naughty Nanka minion. Like its parent the ninki nanka, this slippery wavekin will breed like a rabbit if left unsupervised. Shiiiiiiiiiny! Preeeeeeeetty! Need more eeeeeeeeggs! Eeeeeeeeggs!
-Giggity the Spriggan
Nutkin Nutkin icon1 Inspired by the words of Millinth Ironheart, this daring squirrel longs to travel the realm in search of the legendary golden acorn, and hopes that trailing in your shadow will ensure that he isn't eaten before he discovers the mother lode. Summon your nutkin minion. That nutkins are infamous for being shy and timid creatures shows that this brave beastkin comes complete with a pair of iron acorns on him. I had no idea squirrels could bite so hard!
-Arold
Emote: /beckon will cause it to sit on your shoulder (or head, if Lalafell).
Onion Prince Onion prince icon1 After learning his parents married not for love, but for duty, the Onion Prince vowed he would never walk in the footsteps of his parents, and to this day promises his baseborn sweetheart, the Leek Maid, that they will run away and be wed. Summon your Onion Prince minion. He would die 4 U. Or possibly cry 4 U. Or most likely make U cry. 4 U. Aw, bloody hells! Who's cutting onions back there!?
-Buscaroon
Plush Cushion Plush cushion icon1 Preferring to take a more hands-on approach with his latest project, Redolent Rose of the Weavers' Guild personally researched the resilience and contour of over four score buttocks in order to create a cushion so light and fluffy, even the clouds would darken with envy. Summon your plush cushion minion. Ever ready to shield your buttocks from the hardest of places. Bumbling one spends all sleeping on paperstack pillow, yes?
-Olmxio
Princely Hatchling Princely hatchling icon1 A thoroughbred descended from the legendary Vellantif, this noble bird of Ishguard seeks a rider who will not sully his family's name. Summon the princely hatchling minion, the chocobo who would be king. I had a feeling you'd be riding up on your golden chocobo.
-Path Companion
Pudgy Puk Pudgy puk Fattened from birth to be a succulent snack for the sadistic Steropes, this fledgling puk's excess baggage ensures that even if he attempts to flee, he will not be getting that far. Summon your pudgy puk minion. Don't ask what it had eaten to grow so plump. Ul'dah ain't more'n a sand-crusted pile o' puk dung bakin' in th' desert.
-Baderon Tenfingers
Serpent Hatchling Serpent hatchling1 Raised by a serpent private from an egg found abandoned in the company stables he was charged with cleaning, this adorable fledgling is a symbol of new beginnings for the Order of the Twin Adder. Summon your serpent hatchling minion. Not more than a fortnight out of the shell, but his blood already runs Twin Adder yellow. Chocobo dander can be a mite ripe.
-Chocobokeep
Slime Puddle Slime puddle icon1 Once stepped upon, slime can be nigh on impossible to remove from the soles of boots, making the shapeless creatures a nuisance to those who mine the mountains in which slimes reside. The Encyclopedia Eorzea recommends a squeeze of sun lemon to loosed their stony grip. Summon your slime puddle minion. Fun for the whole family. Silence the slimes, lest you succumb to the flames.
-Ancient Proverb
Smallshell Smallshell1 As is implied by its name, the smallshell's shell is small. What is not widely known is that unlike normal crabs whose shells grow thicker and, hence, larger as the crabs age, smallshell carapaces usually reduce in size due to erosion over the wavekin's lifespan, until nothing is left but legs. Summon your smallshell minion. The mere sight of this wee wavekin may cause sever psychological trauma to those who spent years of their lives on faraway shores culling his relatives. Got naught but a sea lion's share of crab offal 'twixt them ears, I reckon.
-Ighii Moui
Storm Hatchling Serpent hatchling1 Raised by a storm private from an egg found abandoned in the company stables he was charged with cleaning, this adorable fledgling is a symbol of new beginnings for the mighty Maelstrom. Summon your storm hatchling minion. Not more that a fortnight out of the shell, but his blood already runs Maelstrom red. Till sea swallows all! Chocobo dander can be a mite ripe.
-Chocobokeep
Tender Lamb Tender lamb1 As if predestined, your path crossed with that of the tender lamb's after she was brought to Eorzea from the dark reaches of the Far East by a hitsuji bugyo. Since then, you have been inseparable, the fluffy ball of fleece following your every footstep. But everywhere the little lambs went, lice were sure to go.
-Chartain
Tiny Bulb Tiny bulb icon1 To answer the question, "why can this bulb walk," one must trace the seedkin's evolution back thousands of generations. Since this guide lacks the space to do so, let us simply say that it has something to do with seeking sunlight under the eternal darkness of the Black Shroud's thick canopy. Summon your tiny bulb minion. Some questions, such as why this bulb can walk, are best left unanswered. Each sapling is another glimpse into the wonder of the world around us.
-Fufucha
Tiny Rat Tiny rat1 It was only recently that an enterprising merchant from the Emerald Exchange in Ul'dah was tossed into the sultanate's oubliettes for fluffing the tails of rats caught on Pearl Avenue and selling prettied pests to tourists as "tiny squirrels." Summon your tiny rat minion. He may infest your granaries, and he may carry the plague, but he's simply too adorable to condemn to the life-ending jaws of a metal trap. Pray waste no time chasing rats.
-Nanamo Ul Namo
Tiny Tapir Tiny tapir icon1 Before it was realized that tapirs were, in fact, consuming the dreams of their owners, several hundred were sold to Ul'dahn nobles seeking a better night's sleep. Surprisingly, there were few complaints from buyers, even after learning the truth. Summon your tiny tapir minion. Natives of New World claim that tapirs grow by devouring the dreams of their unsuspecting owners. And now you know what to expect. Our dreams are what sustain us.
-Gundobald
Tiny Tortoise Tiny tortoise1 Hatched from an egg laid in the ivory sands of La Noscea's Salt Strand, if lucky, this baby adamantoise may live to see as many as ten score summers...that is, if it does not accidentally launch itself off a cliff with its constant spinning. Summon your tiny tortoise minion. Will not carry you to an underwater kingdom if you ride on its back. What is that foul stench!? It's like the inside of an adamantoise's arse!
-Wood Wailer Sentry
Treasure Box Treasure box icon1 Originally used by an Eorzean Alliance paymaster to store Allied Seals...until the box began eating them. She sold the box in hopes of recouping some of her losses (skimming off adventurer rewards to cover the rest... until she was caught and sentenced to a public flogging). Summon your treasure box minion. It is unknown what manner of spirit possess this tiny treasure chest, but the fact that it will not hesitate to nip at the fingers of any who try and pry it open is painfully evident. A pirate don't abandon 'is treasures!
-Ahtzapfyn
Wayward Hatchling Wayward hatchling1 Even if this orphaned avian were to stumble across his birth parent, chances are he would not even blink an eye, for it is well documented that immediately after hatching, chocobos recognize the first thing they see as their mother - that being you. Summon your wayward hatchling minion. Until he finds his real mother, you'll have to suffice. Whoa, whoa, whoa! Hooold your chocobos.
-Buscarron
Wide-eyed Fawn Wide-eyed fawn1 An easy target for Eorzea's carnivorous fauna, antelopes must use every advantage they have to remain free from death's dripping jaws. One of those is the remarkable ability to run mere minutes from birth. Unfortunately, the trait did not save this specimen from capture. Summon your wide-eyed fawn minion. His mother was either lost in a terrible hunting accident...or perhaps is just lost. When making an offering of antelope innards, it is proper they are still warm.
-Common Knowledge
Wind-up Airship Wind-up airship1 Despite it being the first, and most ambitious undertaking by Highway Skyways founder Tatanora, the Invincible actually never took flight - its ten-year construction period plagued by accidents, material shortages, sabotage, and outright incompetence. Summony your wind-up airship minion. A fully operational model of the legendary vessel, the Invincible. Up in the sky, look! It's a bird - No, it's an airship - No! It's the inspector!
-Nashu Mhakaracca
Wind-up Aldgoat Wind-up aldgoat1 While in Ishgardian folklore the aldgoat is used to represent greed and gluttony, the Dunesfolk believe the insatiable creatures are a symbol of wealth and prosperity, and will present aldgoat fetishes to families with newborn children. Summon your wind-up aldgoat. No aldgoats were harmed in the making of this automaton. A nice big aldgoat steak should put some color back in 'er cheeks.
-Lyngsath
Wind-up Amalj'aa Wind-up amaljaa icon1 Amalj'aa blacksmith Narujj Boh of the Brotherhood of Ash began dabbing in clockwork after rescuing the mammet minion of an adventurer slain near his forges. This particular sample is the product of moons of meticulous calculations made to reproduce the tell-tale Amalj'aa tail sway. Summon your wind-up Amalj'aa minion. What is burnt may never burn, but rises again, harder and stronger. My people are the Amalj'aa, proud and strong.
-Loonh Gah
Wind-up Bahamut Wind-up bahamut icon1 Despite strict orders from the Goldsmiths' Guild to never open the Dalamud minion under any circumstances, someone decided to unleash their inner Pandora and release the terrors hidden within-a wind-up Bahamut...which no one from the guild recalls creating! Summon your wind-up Bahamut minion. This mysterious being emerged from within a broken wind-up Dalamud, and is nigh inseparable from its former prison. Bahamut can't live on good wishes and a smile, so why should I?
-Flame Private
Wind-up Brickman Wind-up brickman icon1 One unexpected side-effect of the Calamity has been the significant increase in aetherial rifts appearing throughout the realm. As a result, strange creatures not of this world have been popping in and out of existence without warning - one of those being the bizarre brickman. Summon your wind-up brickman minion. The brickman gets up and looks over as if it wants to join the party! Can ye smell it? 'Tis the scent o' profit, my friend!
-Beefy Businessman
Wind-up Cursor Wind-up cursor1 If we are to believe the slurred ravings of a self-proclaimed goblin theologian deep in his cups, this seemingly inconspicuous white glove is actually the "Hand of Fate" by which all of us are controlled from a dimension beyond the aether. Summon your wind-up cursor minion. Modeled after the ivory glove of Oschon, the Wanderer, does this clockwork hand follow your...or guide you? I trust ye had enough fingers to help ye through the tallyin'.
-Yulgi Honalgi
Wind-up Dalamud Wind-up dalamud1 After Dalamud's fall, a wealthy Ul'dahn noble commissioned a famous troupe of musicians to write a dirge for the heroes of Carteneau and play it across Eorzea so that the deeds of the fallen would not be forgotten.
