How to get Burning Horns in FFXIV, which are used to get the Phaethon mount.

Even though the initial launch of Final Fantasy XIV was unsuccessful, the game continues to thrive with arguably one of the largest in-game content and activities in the MMORPG genre. One such activity is treasure hunting. Here’s how to obtain the Burning Horn in Final Fantasy XIV, which is gotten via treasure hunting in 6.3.

The first requirement to obtain Burning Horns is get yourself a Timeworn Ophiotauroskin Map. To get these maps, you need to complete the “Treasures and Tribulations” quest and dig them in level 90 gathering nodes Elpis, which has a cooldown rate of 18 hours per map-gather.

Decipher the Timeworn Ophiotauroskin Map

The next step is to decipher the Timeworn Ophiotauroskin Map, which leads to a specific portion of Elpis having an X mark. Go to the mark, dig near it, and you’ll find a chest. Enemies will spawn to protect the chest, and upon clearing them, you’ll be able to open it.

Chest Portal Spawn

The difficulty is having a portal spawn off the chest upon opening it, which is by pure luck. If the portal spawns, entering it will transport you into the Shifting Gymnasium Agnon. As if getting the portal is not hard enough, but guess what? The Burning Horn drop in the Shifting Gymnasium Agnon is RNG-based as well.

A faster but costlier method

You can also opt to buy Timeworn Ophiotauroskin Maps from the Market Board. The map is very pricey as of now but it saves you almost half of the time from the RNG. The good thing is that you only need three Burning Horns.

Upon obtaining three Burning Horns, you can exchange them for the Phaethon Mount. You have to head to the Nesvaaz in Rads-at-Han to get the mount. You can get a decent ROI from this method if you decide to sell the mount at the Market Board. And that's it! Check out our other FFXIV guides here on GameSkinny for more helpful guides.
