FFXIV: How Do You Get The Odder Otter Minion?

The Odder Otter Minion is often acquired via Retainer Ventures’ rewards system.

You can safely switch out your Retainers knowing that any Gathering Job can bring it back.

You can also get the Odder Otter Minion as a reward from the following:

  1. Silver-haloed Sack
  2. Gold-haloed Sack
  3. Material Container 4.0

The Accursed Hoards in Heaven-on-High are the source of the Silver and Gold-haloed Sacks.

They contain a tonne of various goods, but the Minion is in there.

Material Container 4.0 is available from your Grand Company for 20,000 Seals.

There’s room for the Odder Otter and the Abroader Otter, as well as any other Minion from the Stormblood expansion.

These approaches are indirect, but they can be easily avoided by just sending out Retainers.

All of the potentially rewarding Ventures for the Odder Otter take up to 18 hours to complete.

In other words, your Retainers will go out and locate your Minion while you sit back and enjoy the ride.

They all do have minimum Level requirements, starting at 60.

Unless you’ve been completely ignoring them, that shouldn’t be too challenging.

Each of these items is worth 2 Ventures and is one of the following:
