October 18 is patch day in Final Fantasy XIV, which means new quests, dungeons, weapons, minions, and mounts to collect. The new 6.25 content patch marked the premiere of two new types of dungeons – Variant and Criterion – which yield various rewards and currencies you can use to purchase in-game goodies. If you’re looking for a flying, regal chair to sit on and flex your gaming prowess, look no further than the Sil’dihn Throne. Read on to learn how to get the Sil’dihn Throne mount in Final Fantasy XIV.
How To Get The Sil’dihn Throne Mount in Final Fantasy XIV
To obtain the Sil’dihn Throne mount, you’ll need to purchase it with 100 Sil’dihn Silver. Travel to Old Sharlayan and speak with Trisassant near the (X: 12, Y: 13.3) coordinates to view their wares. Sil’dihn Silver is obtained by completing Criterion and Criterion (Savage) dungeons, which are an alternate and more difficult versions of Variant dungeons.
How To Unlock Criterion Dungeons in Final Fantasy XIV
To unlock the Criterion Dungeon “Another Sil’dihn Subterrane”, you’ll have to complete some prerequisites. First, you’ll need to have finished the 6.0 main story questline, specifically the “Endwalker” quest. Next, you’ll need to speak with Osmon in Old Sharlayan located around the (X: 11.9, Y: 13.3) coordinates to accept the quest called “A Key to the Past”. This quest will unlock the Variant Dungeon “Sil’dihn Subterrane”, which must first be completed before the Criterion dungeon is unlocked.
Once the Criterion dungeon is unlocked, you’ll be able to journey through it with a traditional party of four – one tank, one healer, and two DPS. Completing the Criterion dungeon will then unlock the much more difficult Savage version of itself, both of which will award the party with Sil’dihn Silver upon completion.
Collecting 100 Sil’dihn Silver will take some time, so you’d better get to grinding if you want to obtain the Sil’dihn Throne mount. Before you know it, you’ll be soaring the skies Sultana-style. For more information on Final Fantasy XIV, check out our other guides here at Prima Games.
