Mounts allow players to travel around Eorzea faster. After acquiring a mount, you can ride it by dragging the icon onto your action bar. Players can acquire their first mount, Company Chocobo, by playing through the main story and joining a Grand Company at around level 20. Other mounts can be acquired by completing different requirements. Heavensward, FFXIV's first expansion introduced Flying Mounts.
- All mounts have the same movement speed increase.
- Enemies can still attack you while you are mounted. They can potentially injure your mount, slowing its movement speed significantly.

Flying mounts are introduced in Heavensward, revealed at the Fan Festival in London 2014. Flying Mounts allow the players to take to the sky and roam the areas of Heavensward freely. Many of the previously ground mounts, such as Company Chocobo, will be able to fly. Players can only fly in locations in Heavensward such as Ishgard and Coerthas Western Highlands. While flying, the flying mounts have 200% of the speed of a regular ground mount. While running on ground, the flying mounts will be the same speed as a ground mounts (100%).
- You can escape enemies on the ground by flying.
Players can unlock flying mounts through the Main Scenario Quest Divine Intervention. Before flying in a zone, players need to attune with the Aether Currents in that zone. Players can check their attunement progress through the Aether Currents window under Travel in the main menu. Some Aether Currents are found in the zone while others are obtained by completing quests. Players can given an Aether Compass to aid in their search.
After attuning to a zone, press the jump key while riding a flying mount to fly.
