Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker

How to obtain the Lynx Of Eternal Darkness Mount

Ben Chard

The Lynx Of Eternal Darkness mount is a drop when completing the Extreme Trial, The Minstrel’s Ballad: Zodiark’s Fall for Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker.

The Lynx of Eternal Darkness is a drop from Zodiark Ex.

Icon Description
Lynx_of_Eternal_Darkness_Mount_6.00_Patch.png A phantom creation whose elemental aspect is tipped strongly towards the astral. Its shadowed wings call to mind the valiance of Zodiark, eldest and mightiest of primals, but the origins of this familiar are shrouded in eternal Darkness.

Who are you, the Warrior of bleedin’ Darkness!?

Item Description

How to get the Lynx Of Eternal Darkness Mount

The Lynx Of Eternal Darkness will drop in the Chest upon completion of the Extreme Trial, The Minstrel’s Ballad: Zodiark’s Fall. Extreme Trials are only available at Level 90 and are an alternative take on the story Trial you faced. These are much more difficult, requiring a pre-made party to first practice and learn all the mechanics before they’re ready to take it down.

In terms of difficulty, the Zodiark battle is considered the easiest of the two initial launch Trials and having one player know his way around the battle is often enough, so long as the rest of the party outputs their rotations successfully. On top of that, the Flute itself is a rare drop, making this mount incredibly rare as not only defeating the boss for it to drop is challenging, you’ll also be competing with the other players to win the roll. Alternatively, for every victory, you’ll receive a Totem, 10 of these can be used to exchange for a weapon or, after the next main patch (6.1), 99 can be exchanged for the Lynx of Eternal Darkness.

You’ll need to defeat Zodiark in the Extreme Trial to get a chance at looting the Lynx of Eternal Darkness.
