How to unlock the Aithon mount in Final Fantasy XIV Online

An extreme trial awaits.

Few mounts are as majestic and coveted as those found in Final Fantasy XIV's Extreme Trials. These gorgeous steeds are infamous for their fantastic design, and with enough work, anyone can unlock them.

Players must use the Aithon Whistle to unlock the Aithon mount. Mount hunters can acquire this item from A Realm Reborn's Trial, The Bowl of Embers (Extreme.) This is the most challenging variant of the Ifrit boss and will require players to coordinate with party members, so be ready for a tough fight.
