There are some incredible Gold Saucer Mounts, and in this article i’m going to go through each of them and how much MGP you’re going to need.
No doubt you know what the Gold Saucer is. If not, I’ve got you.
It’s basically an amusement park or arcade in Final Fantasy XIV. Gold Saucer is located in Southern Thanalan, which you can access once you’ve hit level 15 and complete one of the follow main story quests;
- The Gridanian Envoy
- The Ul’dahn Envoy
- The Lominsan Envoy
Once one of these has been completed, you can then do the quest “It Could Happen To You” from the Well-heeled Youth in Ul’dah. This will take you to the Gold Saucer.
Here you’ll be able to do a number of games such as Triple Triad, Chocobo Racing and even Lord of Verminion. This is a battle game where you use strategy and fight with your minions.
These games give you MGP’s (Manderville Gold Saucer Points).
You can also earn MGP from other mini games within the Gold Saucer and also attempt to win big amounts from the Jumbo Cactpot.
Once you’ve collected enough, you can then trade them in for some pretty cool rewards. This includes Gold Saucer Mounts that cannot be obtained any other way.
The Gold Saucer Mounts
There are 6 mounts that can be purchased with MGP from The Gold Saucer.
|Gold Saucer Mount||Price (MGP)|
|Korpokkur Kolossus||750,000 MGP|
|Archon Throne||750,000 MGP|
|Sabotender Emperador||2,000,000 MGP|
Imagine being able to tame and domesticate the Adamantoise. A task that was once thought impossible.
Zoologists and thaumaturges from Ul’dahn have managed to do just that. In fact they’ve not just been domesticated, a handful are now willing to be ridden. Although they’re very rare…
One of the reasons why the Adamantoise mount is so popular is the way that it flies.
As it leaves the ground, its legs and head go into the shell and it starts to continue to spin.
Even though the mount does require some grinding, its not too hard to get.
Cost: You can purchase the Adamantoise Whistle for only 200,000 MGP. This item allows you to summon the mount.
The Thaumaturges Guild had summoned Typhon from the void and soon became employed at the Gold Saucer. Although they got into a lot of trouble before getting employment.
He might look scary but looks can be misleading. Typhon is actually pretty friendly.
Not my favorite mount but if you’re a collector like me, one that needs to be purchased!
Cost: Typhon can be summoned with the sneeze-like blare, which can be purchased for 750,000 MGP
The Korpokkur wandered many malms as it looked for a new home. It was not an easy trek through Sagolii. By the time the Korpokkur made it to the Gold Saucer, it needed water to stop it from withering.
This mount can fly, although I’d personally use it more as a land mount.
You can summon this mount with the Korpokkur Kolossus Horn.
Cost: The cost of Korpokkur is 750,000 MGP at the Gold Saucer.
Imagine being able to fly through Eorzea on a chair. Well with the Archon Throne, you can!
Funny enough this chair was not originally enchanted to fly around the world. It is said to have been enchanted by a Great Library bibliophile. Just because they couldn’t reach the top shelves.
Although some still claim that the chair belonged to Louisoix Leveilleur.
Cost: You need to pay 750,000 MGP at the Gold Saucer for the Archon Throne Mount.
Fenrir is a hoarhound that originated from the Coerthas highlands. After the Calamity, the climate changed and these great beasts ventured down from the mountains.
This has got to be one of the most amazing mounts in the game and can only be obtained from the Gold Saucer.
Did you know that Fenrir is not just a ground mount? As he leaps up into the air, he glides through the sky.
This is certainly a mount you’re going to want to grind those MGP for!
Cost: You need to obtain the Fenrir Horn from the Gold Saucer Attendant, this item costs 1,000,000 MGP.
The Sabotender Emperador is the final in this list of Gold Saucer Mounts and probably one of the most popular. Based on the mascot of the Manderville Gold Saucer, it’s a giant Sabotender.
No one actually knows why the Gold Saucer looks like the Sabotender or why many of the items on the drinks menu are “Cact-tails”.
This massive mount will certainly get you some attention.
It has a funny little walk and will often hop as it runs. With the use of the balloons on its arms, the Sabotender Emperador also flies.
What really makes this mount stand out is the fact that it lights up at night!
Cost: This is the most expensive of Gold Saucer Mounts. It’ll cost 2,000,000 MPG, from the Gold Saucer Attendant. Well worth the MPG though!
