Flying mounts are introduced in Heavensward, revealed at the Fan Festival in London 2014. Flying Mounts allow the players to take to the sky and roam the areas of Heavensward freely. Many of the ground mounts, such as Company Chocobo, will be able to fly. Players can only fly in locations in Heavensward such as Ishgard and Coerthas Western Highlands. While flying, the flying mounts have 200% of the speed of a regular ground mount. While running on ground, the flying mounts will be the same speed as ground mounts (100%). Flying mounts must be the most expected item in Heavensward.
In order to help you to get flying mounts as soon as possible after updating, Mmogah makes a guide about how to get flying mounts in Heavensward.
Players can unlock flying mounts through the Main Scenario Quests. Before flying in a zone, players need to attune with the Aether Currents in that zone. Players can check their attunement progress through the Aether Currents window under Travel in the main menu. Some Aether Currents are found in the zone while others are obtained by completing quests. Players can be given an Aether Compass to aid in their search.
P.S: If you lose your Compass you can talk to Gibrillont at the Forgotten Knight to get a new one.
After attuning to a zone, press the jump key while riding a flying mount to fly. The controls are as following.
Here is another tip that some of the mounts in FFXIV Ver.2.0 can fly. You can have a try after Heavensward online. Try to imagine that you are flying in the sky of Erozea, it must be a wonderful experience.
For some new players who join in FFXIV not for long, they may have questions about mounts, let alone flying mounts. Here Mmogah explains it for you.
Mounts allow players to travel around Eorzea faster. After acquiring a mount, you can ride it by dragging the icon onto your action bar. Players can acquire their first mount, Company Chocobo, by playing through the main story and joining a Grand Company at around level 20. Other mounts can be acquired by completing different requirements. Some tips you should know as well.
l You can get your first mount after you reaching level 20.
