How To Get The Albino Kararkul Horn & Mount (FFXIV)This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
The Albino Karakul Mount is purchased for 8,400 Skybuilders’ Scrips. The NPC Enie (The Firmament – Mendicant’s Court, X:12 Y:14) is the resident Vendor of The Firmament, and offers it for sale.
Skybuilders’ Scrips are rewarded for:
- Expert Collectible Crafts
- Diadem Gathering Appraisals
- And Skyrise Celebration Fêtes
These activities are exclusive to Crafting and Gathering.
But they’re available to you at Level 20, and offer huge amounts of Experience. This means you’ll be able to grind up all your Disciples of the Hand and Land while working towards your Albino Karakul.
The Firmament is the result of a series of Crafting Events designed to rebuild the destroyed residences in Ishgard. It took place in four phases during the Shadowbringers Expansion.
In order to get the Skybuilders’ Scrips required for your Mount, you’re in for quite a bit of work.
Building a Skyscrip
Crafters will need to turn in specific items with a base Collectibility in order to receive rewards. Each Crafter under Special Recipes will have a subset called “Ishgard Restoration”.
“Restoration (4)” is the specific set of items you’ll need to create, as the others were for previous phases.
You’ll have six recipes here for each Crafter, at Levels 20, 40, 60, 70, 80, and 4-star 80.
The final Recipe, which also offers the most rewards, is what’s known as an Expert Recipe.
Expert Recipes are unique in that they have steep Collectibility requirements and unique Crafting mechanics.
Instead of Excellent and Poor conditions, they’re replaced by these possible five:
- Centered – Increases Action success rate by 25%.
- Sturdy – Reduces Durability Loss by 50%, and stack with Actions such as “Waste Not”.
- Pliant – Reduces the CP Cost of an Ability by 50%.
- Malleable – Increases Actions that affect Progress by 150%. This Effect also acts multiplicatively, so use with caution.
- Primed – The next Action you use that causes a special Status, like “Innovation”, will last an additional two Steps.
Your goal is to use these Special Conditions to achieve the highest possible Collectability Rating. Doing so increases your rewards massively.
The rewards for an Expert Craft are:
|1,100 – 1,199||66 Scrips|
|1,200 – 1,399||72 Scrips|
|1,400 +||80 Scrips|
The other Crafts of a lower difficulty and Level also offer varying amounts of Experience and Scrips.
In some cases it’s actually easier to just mass-produce them since they require less work.
|20||50 – 105||3 – 5 Scrips|
|40||90 – 300||7 – 9 Scrips|
|60||260 – 580||11 – 15 Scrips|
|70||380 – 900||18 – 22 Scrips|
|80||500 – 1,000||31 – 63 Scrips|
Every Ishgard Restoration Collectible uses special Materials you can’t find outside of The Diadem.
This means that in order to start Crafting, you’ll need to put on your Gathering cap as well. Or purchase them from a Marketboard, though that can be a bit of a Gil sink.
Gathering in the Diadem is a bit more straightforward than Expert Crafting.
You’ll fly around the Zone from Node to Node, trying to maximize the amount you gather.
All turn-ins for Gathering take place at Flotpassant (The Firmament – Mendicant’s Court, X:11 Y:14). The key here is that he’ll only accept resources in stacks of five.
The rewards are:
|Item Level||Skybuilders’ Scrips|
|80 Umbral||5 Scrips|
After Appraising these Items, they’ll be converted to Materials you can then use for Crafts. It’s a great way to level and get to your Albino Karakul that much faster.
Note: Fishing actually rewards a different amount depending on the type of Fish you catch. It also gives Scrips for each Fish instead of in stacks of five. The Fish after Appraisal can then be Desynthesized into Crafting Materials.
|Item Level||Skybuilders’ Scrips|
|10||2 – 4 Scrips|
|60||4 – 10 Scrips|
|80||3 – 124 Scrips|
|80 Umbral||45 – 153 Scrips|
The Umbral and Artisanal Gathering items can only be acquired during certain weather in The Diadem.
These occur every 20 minutes, and maximizing your haul from the special Nodes is optimal.

There’s a plethora of rewards to be had for Skybuilders’ Scrips.
