FFXIV got some mounts added in patch 6.1, including the illusive Alkonost mount. In order to get the mount, you’ll need to complete treasure map ventures into the Excitatron 6000. Our FF14 Alkonost mount guide explains where to get the Alkonost mount and where to find Resplendent Feathers.
Where to get the Alkonost mount
To get the mount, you’ll need to trade 3 Resplendent Feathers for the Alkonost Whistle to the NPC Nesvaaz in Radz-at-Han. We’ve marked his location below.
The Alkonost is a two-legged beast from Bozja, resembling a mix between an emu and a deer.
Where to get Resplendent Feathers
The only source of Resplendent Feathers is from the Excitatron 6000 or the marketboard. As of writing this, one feather is going for around 200,000 gil, making the mount worth 600,000 gil (for now).
Mount materials are typically on the lower floors of the treasure map dungeons, so it’s very likely that you’ll either have to be very lucky or pass through to the fifth chamber in order to get one.
You can access the Excitatron 6000 by deciphering Timeworn Kumbhiraskin Maps and digging in the appropriate locations.
