How To Get The Albino Kararkul Mount in FFXIV

Albino Karakul Mount in Meadows of Dhon Mheg (FFXIV)

The Albino Karakul Mount can be purchased for 8,400 Skybuilders’ Scrips. The NPC that offers this mount for sale is Enie (The Firmament – Mendicant’s Court, X:12 Y:14), and she’s the resident Vendor of The Firmament.

Skybuilders’ Scrips are rewarded for a few types of tasks that are exclusive to Crafting and Gathering:

  • Expert Collectible Crafts
  • Diadem Gathering Appraisals
  • And Skyrise Celebration Fêtes

These activities are available to you at Level 20, and offer huge amounts of Experience. This means you’ll be able to grind up all your Disciples of the Hand and Land while working towards your Albino Karakul.

The Firmament is the result of a series of Crafting Events designed to rebuild the destroyed residences in Ishgard. It took place in four phases during the Shadowbringers Expansion.

In order to get the Skybuilders’ Scrips required for your Mount, you’re in for quite a bit of work.

Crafters will need to turn in specific items with a base Collectibility in order to receive rewards. Each Crafter under Special Recipes will have a subset called “Ishgard Restoration”.

“Restoration (4)” is the specific set of items you’ll need to create, as the others were for previous phases.

You’ll have six recipes here for each Crafter, at Levels 20, 40, 60, 70, 80, and 4-star 80.

The final Recipe, which also offers the most rewards, is what’s known as an Expert Recipe.

Expert Recipes are unique in that they have steep Collectibility requirements and unique Crafting mechanics.

Instead of Excellent and Poor conditions, they’re replaced by these possible five:

  • Centered – Increases Action success rate by 25%.
  • Sturdy – Reduces Durability Loss by 50%, and stack with Actions such as “Waste Not”.
  • Pliant – Reduces the CP Cost of an Ability by 50%.
  • Malleable – Increases Actions that affect Progress by 150%. This Effect also acts multiplicatively, so use with caution.
  • Primed – The next Action you use that causes a special Status, like “Innovation”, will last an additional two Steps.

Your goal is to use these Special Conditions to achieve the highest possible Collectability Rating. Doing so increases your rewards massively.

The rewards for an Expert Craft are:

Collectability Skybuilders’ Scrips
1,100 – 1,199 66 Scrips
1,200 – 1,399 72 Scrips
1,400 + 80 Scrips

The other Crafts of a lower difficulty and Level also offer varying amounts of Experience and Scrips.

In some cases it’s actually easier to just mass-produce them since they require less work.

Level Collectability Skybuilders’ Scrips
20 50 – 105 3 – 5 Scrips
40 90 – 300 7 – 9 Scrips
60 260 – 580 11 – 15 Scrips
70 380 – 900 18 – 22 Scrips
80 500 – 1,000 31 – 63 Scrips

Every Ishgard Restoration Collectible uses special Materials you can’t find outside of The Diadem.

This means that in order to start Crafting, you’ll need to put on your Gathering cap as well. Or purchase them from a Marketboard, though that can be a bit of a Gil sink.

Gathering in the Diadem is a bit more straightforward than Expert Crafting.

You’ll fly around the Zone from Node to Node, trying to maximize the amount you gather.

All turn-ins for Gathering take place at Flotpassant (The Firmament – Mendicant’s Court, X:11 Y:14). The key here is that he’ll only accept resources in stacks of five.

The rewards are:

Item Level Skybuilders’ Scrips
20 1 Scrip
60 2 Scrips
80 3 Scrips
80 Umbral 5 Scrips

After Appraising these Items, they’ll be converted to Materials you can then use for Crafts. It’s a great way to level and get to your Albino Karakul that much faster.

Note: Fishing actually rewards a different amount depending on the type of Fish you catch. It also gives Scrips for each Fish instead of in stacks of five. The Fish after Appraisal can then be Desynthesized into Crafting Materials.

Item Level Skybuilders’ Scrips
10 2 – 4 Scrips
60 4 – 10 Scrips
80 3 – 124 Scrips
80 Umbral 45 – 153 Scrips

The Umbral and Artisanal Gathering items can only be acquired during certain weather in The Diadem.

These occur every 20 minutes, and maximizing your haul from the special Nodes is optimal.
