Final Fantasy XIV has a new raid this patch, and of course, it also has a top-tier chase item. With the introduction of the patch, the Cerberus Mount in Final Fantasy XIV has been added. As a part of the game’s version 5.45 patch, there are some new rewards to earn. One of the many tasks you can undertake is to claim the vicious Cerberus mount. This is the new Savage mount, which means raiding groups will be going full tilt trying to complete the new raid. Delubrum Reginae is the raid added this patch, and you need to put the work in to unlock it.
To get the mount, you need to complete the level 80 raid, which means you need to put effort into gathering 700,000 Mettle and Resistance rank 15. This is no easy feat, Resistance rank can be increased by accumulating Mettle. Mettle is rewarded for completing Skirmishes and Critical Engagements around the map. That means you need to grind out Bozjan field events, and you get plenty of rewards for doing so. At the very least you will earn Field Notes and other turn-ins for rewards while grinding.
Here’s the Mettle thresholds you need to grind out:
- Rank 1: 0 Mettle
- Rank 2: 300 Mettle
- Rank 3: 1,100 Mettle
- Rank 4: 2,200 Mettle
- Rank 5: 3,800 Mettle
- Rank 6: 9,400 Mettle
- Rank 7: 18,000 Mettle
- Rank 8: 32,000 Mettle
- Rank 9: 51,300 Mettle
- Rank 10: 78,000 Mettle
- Rank 11: 106,000 Mettle
- Rank 12: 157,400 Mettle
- Rank 13: 252,000 Mettle
- Rank 14: 416,000 Mettle
- Rank 15: 703,200 Mettle
the repeatable quest One Man’s Relic from Annes in Gangos will grant 12,000 Mettle every week when you complete Delubrum Reginae on any difficulty. This is good for training on how to get the basics of the raid down.
How to get the Cerberus Mount in Final Fantasy XIV
This is a full-scale raid that requires a full team of 48 players, so it’s meant for the top-end raiding groups. You can’ get entry unless you have a full raid, so you will likely want to try and join a good raiding group if you want to farm for any Savage mount, not just the Cerberus Mount in Final Fantasy XIV.
This raid is too complex to cover in this guide, but you can certainly try to prepare by watching runs showing off its attacks and phases. There’s a very good run of the raid in the video below. Whatever method you pick to take on the raid, you will need to complete it to earn the mount. When you do get the raid finished on Savage, you can claim your reward.
To claim your Cerberus mount, go find Jonathas in Old Gridania (map coordinates X:10, Y:6). You will also earn the achievement “Savage Queen of Swords I.”
