Apart from the obviously cool loot like mounts, minions and emotes, there are plenty of other things released within FFXIV patches that are worth covering. In this article, I’ll be going over all the new 6.1 bardings, fashion accessories and Triple Triad cards you can snatch for yourself!
When it comes to Chocobo bardings, there are two new ones, the Wolf Barding and the Bluefeather Barding. If you’d like your bird to look like a wolf, you’ll need to spend 1k Trophy Crystal at the Wolves’ Den, which come from your PvP activities and seasonal malmstones. If you want the fancy, light armor crafted by the Armorers, you’ll either need to spend about 450k gil on the Market Board, or craft it yourself. Or, you know. Charm an Armorer into doing it for you if you can get the mats for it.
There are also three new fashion accessories in 6.1. One of them comes from the Excitatron 6000, which is the Endwalker version of treasure maps, and that’s the fancy-looking White Lace Parasol. If you’re not much of a mapper, you can also get it on Market Board for about 420k gil and immediately look dashing. Another Parasol is the Blue Blossom Parasol, coming from the Subaquatic Voyages – Thrall’s Unrest mission. If you don’t have an FC house, a workshop in it, submarines, and access to this particular voyage, your best bet is to get it from the Market Board for about a million gil. But you’ll look cute. So cute. And it’ll all be worth it.
Last but not least, you can now get the False Classic Spectacles from the Subaquatic Voyages – Anthemoessa. Just like with the previous item, if you don’t involve yourself with submarines, you can get these Spectacles at the Market board for about 650k gil. What’s cool about them is that you can wear other head gear like hats and such, and still have glasses equipped, which is something I feel is still a bit lacking when it comes to our current headgear slot system. Therefore, they’re definitely a worthy purchase!
Last but not least, there’s the Triple Triad cards, and the 6.1 patch brought in 8 of them. You can purchase Endsinger for 72k MGP and Thal for 24.8k MGP at the Triple Triad Trader in the Gold Saucer. You can grind out Rhalgr and Azeyma in Mor Dhona at the Triple Triad NPC called Prudence, Nald will drop from the Aglaia wing in the Alliance raid, Rampart is from the Aldzaal’s Legacy dungeon, and you can trade your 300 Bicolor Gemstones for Daivadipa and Chi cards in Old Sharlayan or Radz-at-Han.
And that’s mostly it when it comes to new 6.1 loot. Let me know in the comments if I forgot to mention something, and if you’re more of a visual person, and you don’t mind getting easy wins in-game, you can check out all of this in my video – and subscribe for more awesome FFXIV stuff!
