The Adamantoise Mount can only be purchased for 200,000 MGP from the Manderville Gold Saucer. The Gold Saucer Attendant NPC (Gold Saucer – Entrance Square, X:5 Y:6) is who you’re looking for, specifically under “Prize Claim I”.
Manderville Gold Saucer Points (MGP) are a special currency only used inside the attraction.
You earn them from various activities, including:
- Triple Triad
- Lords of Verminion
- Chocobo Racing
- Cactpot and Mini Cactpot
- Doman Mahjong
- The Fashion Report
- Mini-games such as Cuff-a-cur, Out on a Limb, or The Finer Miner
- GATEs (Gold Saucer Active Time Events)
- Air Force One
- Leap of Faith
- Any Way the Wind Blows
- The Slice is Right
These all reward varying amounts of MGP, along with a Weekly reward for completing your Challenge Log.
If you complete every Challenge Entry, you’ll actually walk away with a whopping 95,000 MGP.
That’s nearly half an Adamantoise per week! Not to mention the MGP you’ll get for competing in the above Events.
All you need to access the wonders of the Gold Saucer is completion of a very short Quest.
The Well-Heeled Youth (Ul’dah – The steps of Nald, X10 Y:9) offers the Quest “It Could Happen to You” at Level 15. So the attraction is accessible quite early in your adventures.
The Gold Saucer often changes its Events around, and even has new ones added periodically. It’s always good to check in every Patch and see if any Prizes or games have been added.
Everyone’s a Winner – Especially You
Alongside your Adamantoise Mount, The Gold Saucer offers a huge array of Prizes. .
