Few mounts are as lucrative and enviable as Final Fantasy XIV's Nightmare mount. Unlike the mounts you can purchase in the online store, players can only earn this mount via gameplay. What can players do to bring this majestic mount home?
Players will need to get and use the Nightmare Whistle to unlock the Nightmare mount. The Nightmare Whistle is a rare drop from several of A Realm Reborn's Extreme Trials. Extreme trials are the most challenging variants of the game's Trial encounters.
|Trial||Required Level||Average Item Level|
|The Howling Eye (Extreme)||50||65|
|The Navel (Extreme)||50||67|
|The Bowl of Embers (Extreme)||50||70|
While the Nightmare Whistle does have a rare chance to drop, it ends up in the loot pool at the end of each Trial, meaning players will have to roll for it among other players. Only one lucky party member will walk away with a Nightmare Whistle when it does eventually spawn.
