FFXIV Mount Rokkon Variant Dungeon route guide

FFXIV Mount Rokkon Variant Dungeon route guide

Mount Rokkon is the new Variant Dungeon in FFXIV. Like the previous Variant Dungeon, The Sil’dihn Subterrane, you have 12 routes to discover and complete solo or with a party. You’ll get the Burabura Chochin mount for your efforts.

Play detective as you find your way up a mountain, where you must figure out what you must do to find all paths. From solving a puzzle to opening a hidden door to being smart to avoid an ambush, there are several ways to unlock a new path.

To get a chance to climb Mount Rokkon, you need a character at level 90 and have completed the “Endwalker” main scenario quest. Then, you must go to Old Sharlayan to talk to Shallow Moor did X: 12.0 Y: 13.3.

Shallow Moor gives you the quest “Mononoke Aware,” which unlocks Mount Rokkon. You can either run it solo or with a party. To party with other players you need at least an item level of 605.

By unlocking a new path, you get access to more than just a new piece of the place’s story. All the major fights are different, since all bosses perform different sequences of attacks and mechanics depending on which route you’re in.

With our Final Fantasy 14 Mount Rokkon route guide, you can find all the help you need when looking for the hidden paths that you need to complete to get the Burabura Chochin mount.
