Raids have always been a monumental part of the Final Fantasy XIV experience, allowing players to develop strategies to scythe through the area with ease while making memories with their chosen partners for the raid. Reaping the rewards of a raid completion is a feeling incomparable to many others that can be experienced in the game. Notably, the high-level raids even see rewards such as mounts for players and this is the case with the Alte Roite mount; a dragon which can be summoned by the player after completing a brutally challenging raid. Luckily, the reward is worth every second of it. This guide will take you through the steps you need to complete in order to obtain the Final Fantasy XIV Alte Roite mount.
How To Unlock the Final Fantasy XIV Alte Roite Mount
The Alte Roite mount is rewarded to the player by the way of an ‘Alte Roite Prism’ which can be used to summon the mount after they complete the Deltascape V4.0 (Savage) level 70 raid. In order to take part in the raid, players need to first have an item level of 320+ just to queue for it.
Party members will be treated to increasingly difficult phases of battle throughout the raid. Being equipped with the best gear possible will be a surefire way to succeed at this raid along with communicating efficiently with your team and having pre-built strategies ready to go in the background. Once you and your party have completed the raid, you will be given the prism mentioned before and treated to one of Final Fantasy XIV’s great mounts, the Alte Roite.
What Other Loot Can I Gain in the Raid?
You may be wondering what other reasons there are to take on this level 70 raid, enjoyment will needless to say be one of them but there is a vast amount of other loot on top of the mount. Players can expect to earn 15 ‘Allagan Tomestone of Poetics’, a ‘Deltascape datalog v4.0’, and you can also earn Genji weapons, armour, and other miscellaneous items.
Players are furthermore able to earn a ‘Wind-up Exdeath’ minion to use within the game world after defeating the final boss and looking in the chest for it. This particular minion will engage in adorable fights with the ‘Ghido’ turtle minion.
What is the Lore of the Alte Roite Mount?
The mount itself is based on a dragon and the name is actually based on ‘Alte leute’, which means “old people” in German. This has many connotations linking to the Final Fantasy lore in the past with the dragon being named after a wizard called Alte Roite who could transform into a dragon at any time he wanted to.
