How To Get The Sanuwa Mount in FFXIVThis post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
The Sanuwa Mount can be obtained for 200,000 Gil from the NPC vendor Luna Vanu (The Sea of Clouds – Ok’ Gundu Nakki, X:7 Y:14). Luna Vanu is a member of the Vanu Vanu Beast Tribe in Heavensward.
The Horn itself will only be available from this Vendor once you’ve reached Rank 7 (Sworn) with the Vanu Vanu.
Thankfully, building reputation with the Vanu Vanu is a pretty simple process.
You’ll be able to begin your friendship with them after defeating the monstrous Primal Bismarck.
Friendship is For The Birds
The Quest “Bolt, Chain, and Island” is a Level 57 Quest, and part of the Heavensward Expansion.
You’ll consult once again with Garlond Ironworks to cobble together a method of combating the massive Primal.
Once you’ve harpooned this unsettling whale in The Limitless Blue, you can accept “A Difference of Opinion”. This causes the Garleans to retreat from the Sea of Clouds in search of Azys Lla.
With those out of the way, grab “Three Beaks to the Wind” from Sonu Vanu (The Sea of Clouds – Ok’ Zundu, X:12 Y:14).
Once you’ve surveyed Ok’ Vundu Mak, you approach Linu Vali to protect them from hostile Vundu. After protecting her from the threat, she explains her desire for her Tribe’s independence.
A short conversation later and you’ll be riding your future Sanuwa to clear Midge clouds.
Once that’s done, the Gundu will settle in the western Blue Window and become available as a Beast Tribe.
Vanu Vanu Reputation & Rewards
Your Rank with the Vanu Vanu begins at Rank 1 (Neutral).
You’ll have three Daily Quests available, with each awarding 50 Reputation.
It’ll take you 12 days in total to achieve Rank 7 (Sworn), assuming you do these 3 quests each time they’re available.
The Daily Quests themselves vary a lot, from riding a Sanuwa and clearing pesky swarms, to obtaining food for the Tribe. Although they offer decent experience from levels 51-60, in addition to Gil, Poetic Tomestones, and Vanu Whitebones.
Vanu Whitebones are the Tribe’s currency, which you can use to purchase a myriad of items from Luna Vanu.
As your Rank changes, what they offer also changes:
|Vanu Vanu Head||Bloodsworn||9|
|Vanu Vanu Body||Bloodsworn||9|
|Vanu Vanu Arms||Bloodsworn||4|
|Vanu Vanu Waist||Bloodsworn||4|
|Vanu Vanu Legs||Bloodsworn||4|
|Coming Home Orchestrion||Friendly||3|
Luna Vali also has a separate shop though. It uses Gil instead of Whitebones.
That inventory is:
|Cold Knight’s Cookfire||Friendly||9,772g|
|Wind-up Gundu Warrior||Trusted||30,000g|
|Wind-up Zundu Warrior||Sworn||30,000g|
|Vanu Vanu Head||Bloodsworn||40,000g|
|Vanu Vanu Body||Bloodsworn||130,000g|
|Vanu Vanu Arms||Bloodsworn||30,000g|
|Vanu Vanu Waist||Bloodsworn||70,000g|
|Vanu Vanu Legs||Bloodsworn||30,000g|
The Reputation grind for the Vanu Vanu is one of the shorter ones in Heavensward.
Keep knocking out those daily quests and you’ll have your Sanuwa Mount in no time.
