There's a plethora of things to do in Final Fantasy XIV, especially with the latest patch release, 6.25. Along with new variant dungeons and new mounts, you can also get a new minion. Here's how to get the new Sewer Skink minion in FFXIV.
Where to get the Sewer Skink minion in Final Fantasy XIV
To get the Sewer Skink minion in FFXIV, you must play through the variant dungeon Sil'dihn Subterrane and acquire it as a drop from a chest. Or you can purchase it from the Market Board, as the Sewer Skin minion is tradeable. You can also get the Sponge Silkie minion the same way.
There are three types of the Sil'dihn Subterrane dungeon: variant, criterion, and criterion savage. The Sewer Skink only drops in the variant type, so be sure to choose that one if you want this minion added to your collection.
