FFXIV: How To Get The Construct VI-S 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 Construct VI-S Mount can be purchased from the Faux Commander (Idyllshire, X:6 Y:6) for 500 Faux Leaves. Faux Leaves themselves are rewards from completing Unreal Trials.

Upon completion of the weekly Trials, you’re given the opportunity to play the minigame Faux Hollows.

Faux Hollows is a simple grid matching game, which rewards up to 200 Faux Leaves per week.

Unreal Trials were synced Level 80 versions of Extreme Trials from A Realm Reborn. Shiva, Titan, and Leviathan were all featured throughout Shadowbringers.

Currently there are no Unreal Trials running as of 6.0, so as of this writing you can’t acquire Faux Leaves.

They are slated to return in 6.1, however, so it’s likely that they’ll be available by the time you’re reading this.

The Trials themselves don’t contain any new mechanics. Strategies are widely available should you need to freshen up on fight knowledge.

Weekly runs are almost always up in Party Finder too.

Simply pop in and win to claim your prize, no loot roll required.


Becoming A Friend To Your Faux Commander

There are actually a couple steps in order to unlock Faux Hollows and Unreal Trials.

Firstly, Players will need to reach Level 60 and speak with the Unctuous Adventurer (Idyllshire, X:7 Y:6).

This begins the Quest “Keeping Up With The Aliapohs” which in turn unlocks the Wondrous Tails system.

Wondrous Tails itself is a Weekly Quest that gives rewards for completing various duties.

Next, the Player will need to complete the Level 80 Main Story Quest “Shadowbringers”.

With that and Wondrous Tails out of the way, speak with the Painfully Ishgardian Man (Idyllshire, X:7 Y:6).

He’ll give you the Quest “Fantastic Mr. Faux” which unlocks both Faux Hollows and the current Unreal Trial.
