The Wind-up Grebuloff Minion can be rarely obtained through the Retainer Venture “Highland Exploration XXVI”. This Venture is only available to a Miner, and it’ll also require a minimum Level of 81 and Gathering Score of 1,815.
And truthfully the Grebuloff Minion itself is pretty uncommon.
This means you’ll need to send your Retainer on ventures quite a few times before it bags you one.
Your Retainer shares a level with you on a per-class basis. This means you’ll also need to be a level 81 Miner, or your Retainer’s experience will be stuck.
The good thing here is that you certainly want a gatherer as a Retainer. Especially if you plan to do any crafting.
Well, for crafting and great rewards like the Wind-up Grebuloff.
Being able to gather large amounts of materials with minimal effort is amazing.
Even more so when it’s someone else doing it!
You also have the option of shelling out a large amount of Gil, since this minion isn’t market prohibited.
If you go this route then expect to pay quite a lot for it.
As with most ventures, the rewards are quite random.
You’ll get a range of items in addition to XP for your Retainer.
Highland Exploration XXVI is the venture you’re after, and it has the following rewards:
|Allagan Silver Piece||8 – 9|
|Bismuth Ore||9 – 11|
|Eblan Alumen||9 – 11|
|High Durium Ore||9 – 10|
|High Durium Sand||9 – 10|
|Pewter Ore||9 – 11|
|Phrygian Gold Ore||9 – 11|
|Raw Ametrine||9 – 11|
|Wind-up Grebuloff Minion||1|
It may take a while, but just keep sending out your Retainer until the Minion is yours.
