FFXIV: How To Get The Bomb Palanquin Mount

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 airborne Bomb Palanquin Mount is purchased from the Kobold Vendor for 120,000 Gil. It will become available for sale once you have achieved Trusted (Rank 4) with the Kobold Beast Tribe.

Reputation Ranks with Beast Tribes are achieved through repeating daily Quests.

Rank 4 is the maximum achievable for all Beast Tribes in A Realm Reborn. Their final rank, Allied, is actually gained through a series of Quests.

It will take you roughly 23 days to get to Rank 4.

This assumes you’re knocking out the three highest reward Quests available that day. You can, however, use more Daily Allowances to get there faster.

It just depends how badly you want your Bomb Palanquin!

To begin your path towards your Palanquin, you’ll first need to do a few things.

Namely, you’ll need to have completed the Main Story Quest “In Pursuit of the Past”.

Once that’s out of the way, seek out Trachraet (Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks – The Aftcastle, X:13 Y:13) to accept “Highway Robbery”.

He seems in need of your superior sleuthing skills to track down missing shipments.

Follow these steps to complete the Quest:

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

This will finish the Quest, and allow you to pick up “How Low Can You Go” from 789th Order Pickman Gi Gu.

Completing that will unlock the Kobold Beast Tribe Dailies.
