This page is a guide on How to unlock the Mount Ordeals Trial in Final Fantasy XIV that was released on February 10th 2023.
How To Start The Mount Ordeals Trial
Before you can face Rubicante, the Arch-fiend of Fire in the Mount Ordeals Trial you’ll need to complete the following Main Scenario Quests which were released with 6.3:
- Once More unto the Void
- A Cold Reunion
- Kindled Spirit
- An Unforeseen Bargain
- King of the Mountain
- A Dragon’s Resolve
- Paths Barred
- Desires Untold
- Gods Revel, Lands Tremble
Once you’ve completed seven of the quests you’ll want to speak with Nahbdeen who is located at (X: 10, Y: 10) in Thavnair. Here you’ll gain access to Mount Ordeals Trial. The Mount Ordeals Trial works the same way as the previous ones, so there will be 2 Tanks, 2 Healers and Two DPS required to challenge Rubicante.
Mount Ordeals Trial Rewards
Unfortunately, the rewards for completing the normal version aren’t too impressive as the only things up for grabs is the Rubicante Card, Savage Aim Materia XI, Savage Might Materia XI and Heavens’ Eye Materia XI.
How To Unlock The Mount Ordeals Extreme Trial
Once you’ve completed the normal version of Mount Ordeals, head over to Old Sharlayan and go over to (X: 12.6, Y: 14.2) and speak with the Wandering Minstrel to gain access to the extreme version. This version of the battle will be a lot tougher, so you’ll typically need a group you can practice with before you’re able to clear it.
