Unicorn Mounts

White Mages riding on Unicorns.

Mounts are a form of transportation in Final Fantasy XIV, wherein players ride atop the backs of various creatures. While riding, enemy attacks may snare the ride or forcefully dismount a player, requiring caution in more dangerous areas. Players will automatically dismount when entering city gates, but they may ride them in residential districts.

Heavensward features flying mounts that can soar through new zones added in the expansion. Once the player finishes a specific sidequest, many other mounts which were once limited to traveling on the ground, will gain the ability to fly.

FFXIV Mount AmberDraught Amber Draught Chocobo Yes Purchase from a Calamity Salvager with 8 Gold Chocobo Feathers. To Ishgardians, red represents true love and loyalty.

FFXIV Mount KamAus Auspicious Kamuy Yes Possible reward from The Jade Stoa (Extreme) Said to be swaddled in the very winds of heaven, this majestic creature was once a brutal killer of man. A chance meeting with auspice lord Byakko, however, saw the bloodlust in its heart fade.

You are as a lost kitten that has wandered into the drake's lair. - Zagozz Teh

To ensure his elbst do not find themselves at a disadvantage to swift-running chocobos, Pahh of Novv's Clutch clips the webbing on their feet at a young age, rendering them more capable of achieving high speeds on land.

I lost two good men to these wolves. - Corentiaux the Colder

Draught Chocobo Draught Chocobo Yes Recruit a Friend campaign. This heretofore unseen breed of chocobo was said to have been discovered by chocobo hunters searching for the legendary Chocobo Forest.

The thing was thrice my size and had already maimed several keeps. - Battlewarden Ribald

Playfully described by some as "large and in charge," in truth, when summoned, this gluttonous gourmand will flap nary a feather unless a garland of gysahl greens is dangled before him—in which case not even the laws of nature can slow the fat chocobo down.

FFXIV mount fatmog Fat Moogle Yes Purchase from the Mog Station. This plus-sized patrician epitomizes the ancient moogle proverb regarding kupo nuts that says, “Once you kupop, you cannot stop.” Basic laws of physics suggest that wings as small as the fat moogle's should not provide enough lift for true flight...

See the nightmare for reality, and ready thyself for the coming chaos! - Urianger
