How Do You Get The Magicked Card Mount? (FFXIV)

The Magicked Card gliding over the World Unsundered (FFXIV)

The Magicked Card Mount can only be obtained as a reward from the Achievement “A Card in the Hand”. But this is no easy task, since the Achievement itself requires you to obtain Triple Triad cards 1 through 312.

Complicating this even further are sidequests. Several NPCs simply won’t play you until their Questline is finished.

After unlocking Triple Triad at the Gold Saucer, you can check your current Card List. It’s in the Character Menu, near the bottom.

Unfortunately while this does provide several clues on where to hunt for Cards, it doesn’t reveal them all.

This is a game-long pursuit – and it will take you quite a while to complete.

Luckily it’s a great way to pass long Queue timers.

The other good news is that card drop rates from NPCs have significantly increased.

Cards In The Hall

Your first five cards are easy enough to acquire – simply speak with the Triple Triad Master (The Manderville Gold Saucer – Card Square, X:4 Y:7).

They’ll give you the Quest “Triple Triad Trial” which rewards you with your first five cards then & there.

Just 307 more to go!

But in FFXIV, Triple Triad Cards are obtained through various methods.

Many can be obtained directly in the Gold Saucer. The Triple Triad Trader (The Manderville Gold Saucer – Card Square, X:4 Y:7) offers the following:

As mentioned earlier, many cards can be obtained in multiple ways.

Trials, Dungeons, NPCs, Vendors, and even FATEs offer them as rewards.

Keep in mind that some NPCs holding rarer cards aren’t readily available. You’ll need to finish many sidequest chains to unlock them, like Beast Tribe Quests.

Other NPCs can be tucked away in obscure locations, like the Idle Imperial pictured above.

He’s loitering in the middle of nowhere in Azys Lla, and holds four cards you’ll need.

Just watch your map for the Triple Triad icon and keep your deck readily in hand. You’ll have your Magicked Card Mount in no time.
