The FFXIV Alkonost mount is here, but like the 6.1 patch’s other new mounts, you’ll have to work to get it. Alkonost mounts require a unique currency you can only gain through completing some of Endwalker’s endgame activities, and it takes quite a bit of time to get what you need.
This guide explains how to get the Troll mount in FFXIV and how to get the Faux Leaves needed to purchase it.
If you’re after more FFXIV help, check out our guides on how to get the Pod mount and clear the Aglaia Raid, along with our tips on snagging a housing plot on the coveted Ishgard estates. Should one mount not be enough, you can get your hands on the Vinegaroon mount and Troll Mount while you’re at it. And if you need a hand with the patch's new quests, our 6.1 quest guide is here to help.
How To Get The Alkonost Mount In FFXIV
You can buy the Alkonost Whistle from Nesvaaz in Radz-At-Han, but it costs you three Resplendent Feathers. We've outlined how to get Resplendent Feathers elsewhere, but here's a condensed version.
Resplendent Feathers have a chance of dropping during the dungeons you access from Kumbhiraskin Treasure Maps, though there's a catch. After finding all the marked locations on the map, you can only initiate a dungeon run once per day. You can still complete them with other party members, but you're subject to their loot rules.
How To Summon The Alkonost Mount
Summoning the Alkonost mount is the same as summoning any other mount. Head into your inventory to find the Alkonost Whistle, and then use it. After that, the mount icon will live in the mount section of the menu, and you can drag it onto your hotbar if you think you'll be summoning it frequently.
