If you’re looking to obtain the new Alkonost mount in FFXIV you’ll need to do quite a few things before actually acquiring it. This mount was added in Patch 6.1 and will require a decent time investment. Here’s how to get the Alkonost mount in FFXIV.
How to Get the Alkonost Mount in FFXIV
First up, you’ll need to obtain three Resplendent Feathers, which can only be found by completing the Timeworn Kumbhiraskin Treasure Maps. Treasure Maps are tricky to come across in FFXIV because they can only be obtained by high-level resource nodes. This means you’ll need to have a Disciple of the Hand skill high enough to extract from the nodes. More so, since this is an Endwalker mount, you’ll need to be at level 90, which is the max level to extract a Treasure Map.
Furthermore, you can actually only get one treasure map this one every eighteen hours. If you want more of them, you’re going to have to go to the Market Board and pay a pretty penny for more Treasure Maps, because while there is a cooldown for extracting them, there is no cooldown for opening new ones.
ONce you’ve completed enough Treasure Maps to find three Resplendent Feathers you’ll need to head to Nescaaz in Radz-at-Han (X:10.6, Y:10.1). From here select the option “Out of this World Oddities” and use the feathers to purchase the Alkonost Whistle.
Use the Alkonost Whistle in your inventory to permanently unlock the mount.
