Need a ride? Below, we have compiled every mount available for Final Fantasy XIV. This list includes all Shadowbringers mounts, as well as every previous option. Climb on board as we review all of your options with our FFXIV Mounts Guide.
FFXIV Mounts Guide
Before we dive in, there are a few things to consider regarding these mounts. First, they come in two varieties: grounded or flying. Originally, ground creatures made up the vast majority of final fantasy 14 mounts. During subsequent releases, the number of available flying mounts grew dramatically. Flying isn’t just inherently cool; these mounts are twice as fast as the ground versions.
If you are new to the game, don’t be in a rush to grab a mount. After all, they are only available when you join a Grand Company at Level 20. Your Grand Company is a major turning point in the game, and joining one will nets you a Grand Company Chocobo. Obviously, this is the easiest mount to get in FFXIV.
Your Chocobo won’t be the best option for long, but having access to FF14 Mounts is a gamechanger. Without further ado, let’s step into our FFXIV Mounts list.
