How To Get The Bomb Palanquin Mount In FFXIV?

For 120,000 Gil, you can buy the Bomb Palanquin Mount from a Kobold Vendor.

Once you reach Rank 4 (Trust) with the Kobold Beast Tribe, you will be able to sell it.

Reputation Ranks with Beast Tribes are earned by doing daily quests over and over.

In A Realm Reborn, all Beast Tribes can get as high as Rank 4.

Their last rank, “Allied,” is earned by completing a series of quests.

About 23 days will pass before you reach Rank 4.

This is based on the idea that you are doing the three quests with the highest rewards that day.

You can get there faster, though, if you use more Daily Allowances.

How badly do you want your bomb?

Palanquin is the only thing that matters.

The Bomb Palanquin Mount In FFXIV

You’ll need to do a few things first to get started on your way to your Palanquin.

In particular, you must have finished the main story quest “In Pursuit of the Past.”

Once that is done, go to Trachraet (Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks – The Aftcastle, X:13 Y:13) and ask him to take “Highway Robbery.”

He seems to want you to help him find shipments that have gone missing.

To finish the Quest, do these things:

  1. Speak with Skaetswys (Western La Noscea – Swiftperch, X:34 Y:31)
  2. Search Swiftperch for clues
  3. Deliver the “Crooked Pickaxe” to Skaetswys
  4. Speak with Bloedin (Outer La Noscea – Camp Overlook, X:18 Y:17)
  5. Speak with Skaetswys once more (Outer La Noscea – 789th Order Dig, X:21 Y:18)

This will end the Quest and let you get “How Low Can You Go” from 789th Order Pickman Gi Gu.
