With the release of patch 6.2 for Final Fantasy XIV, dozens of new minions, mounts, and other collectibles were added to the game. One of these is the adorable Pterosquirrel, a flying squirrel of your very own. So how do you unlock and get your hands on the Pterosquirrel?
Obtaining the Pterosquirrel Minion in FFXIV 6.2 and beyond.
To unlock the Pterosquirrel Minion, you’ll need 400 Faux Leaves, the currency earned from playing Faux Hollows. Faux Hollows is a mini-game that challenges you to beat some of the most challenging fights of past expansions updated with max-level stats.
Unlocking and playing Faux Hollows.
For 6.2, the Faux Hollows trial is Containment Bay S1T7 (Unreal), also known as Sephirot Unreal. To participate in Faux Hollows, you’ll need to ensure you’ve unlocked it. Faux Hollows is unlocked by talking to the Painfully Ishgardian Man at X: 7, Y: 5.9 in Idyllshire.
Completing Unreal Trials allows you to play a game similar to “battleship” with the Faux Commander. Successfully uncovering illustrations on the Faux Hollows board unlocks Faux Leaves, which can be exchanged for prizes.
Just like most rewards in-game, they reset every Tuesday at 1:00am PT. The Unreal Trials for Faux Hollows can be found easily using the Raid Finder. It’s a lot of work, but this adorable minion is your reward!
