Best Mounts in FFXIV
The best mounts in FFXIV are often a subjective choice. But there are a few options that few people can argue with.
The best mounts in the game are often included in one of two categories: cute or cool.
It’s easy to see that the FFXIV fanbase adores kawaii mounts, but there’s always room for those fit for a king.
Rarity also plays a small role, but not a large one. For example, Garlond GL-IIT is extremely rare, but it is overshadowed by the Fenrir motorcycle.
The same goes for Chocobo mounts. They’re great, but there are so many more options with a more unique spin.
Rarest Mounts in Final Fantasy XIV
The best mounts in FFXIV below are mounts that either few players have, or that aren’t available anymore yet are highly revered.

Cerberus is a three-headed dog that players may recognize from The World of Darkness. Does adds-belly-chains ring a bell?
The mount is only available to players who clear Delubrum Reginae (Savage). The difficult level 80 raid ensures that only 4% of players have the mount.
Regalia Type-G Car
- 43% of players
The Regalia car was initially only available at the Gold Saucer for 200,000 MGP. But in 2021, it was easy to snag at the Nocturne of Heroes event.
The four-seater car is one that fans of FF15 will recognize. While the land version of the car is cool, the transformation it makes when it flies really sells it.

Astrope is a mount that can hold two players. Only those who achieve Mentor status may unlock it and only after playing 2000 duties as mentor.
The alicorn is more than just rare’ it’s beautiful and scales with player size.

Pinky is one of the rarest mounts in the game despite there being two ways to get it. The colorful pink elephant from Endwalker is one of the most coveted in the game.
The first way to get Pinky is to randomly receive the drop from the Excitatron 6000 treasure map. The other is to trade in three Exciting Tonics (another drop).

The Ramuh mount is a flying centaur version of the lightning god. To receive the mount, you have to complete the Eden’s Verse: Refulgence (Savage) raid.

Kamuy of the Nine-Tails is a kyuubi mount that you get by farming Stormblood trials. If done right, it can be earned in a day.

Nightmare is earned the same way that Kamuy of the Nine-tails is only in A Realm Reborn. So it’s easy to earn it solo to avoid rolling and missing it.

The Unicorn is easy to earn as well. All you need to do is reach level 30 with Conjurer (not White Mage) and talk to Braya.
