General Information

Mounts allow players to travel around Eorzea faster. After acquiring a mount, you can summon it by dragging the icon onto your action bar and clicking the icon. Players can acquire their first mount, Company Chocobo, after completing the level 20 main story quest titled A Hero in the Making and joining a Grand Company. Players must also complete the quest My Little Chocobo given by an NPC located within their Grand Company Building. Other mounts can be acquired by meeting different requirements. Heavensward, FFXIV's first expansion, introduced Flying Mounts.

  • All mounts have the same base movement speed increase.
  • Enemies can still attack you while you are mounted. They can potentially injure your mount, slowing its movement speed significantly.

Increase Mount Speed

As players progress, the speed of mounts on the ground will increase in two stages. The first is via quest lines whereas the second is via purchasable enhancements. Continue reading for details on how to unlock these.

It should be noted, however, that the speed of mounts will be limited in certain areas as follows:

The speed enhancement available for all areas can be confirmed via the Mount Speed window under Travel in the Main Menu.

Flying Mounts

A image of the Single Rider Airship

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 previousff ground mounts, such as Company Chocobo, will be able to fly. To do this, you will need to complete the quest I Believe I Can Fly, located near the chocobo stables in Ishgard. 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.

Unlock

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 are provided with an Aether Compass to aid them in their search.

Controls

After attuning to a zone, press the jump key while riding a flying mount to fly.
