How Do You Get The Magicked Card Mount in FFXIV?This post may contain affiliate links. If you buy something we may get a small commission at no extra cost to you. (Learn more).
The Magicked Card Mount in FFXIV is obtained as a reward from the Achievement “A Card in the Hand”. But this is no easy task, since the Achievement itself requires you to obtain Triple Triad cards 1 through 312.
Complicating your card acquisition further are sidequests.
Several NPCs simply won’t play you until their Questline is finished.
After unlocking Triple Triad at the Gold Saucer, you can check your current Card List. It’s in the Character Menu, near the bottom.
Unfortunately while this does provide several clues on where to hunt for Cards, it doesn’t reveal them all.
This is a game-long pursuit – and it will take you quite a while to complete.
Luckily it’s a great way to pass long Queue timers.
The other good news is that card drop rates from NPCs have significantly increased.
Cards In The Hall
Your first five cards are easy enough to acquire – simply speak with the Triple Triad Master (The Manderville Gold Saucer – Card Square, X:4 Y:7).
They’ll give you the Quest “Triple Triad Trial” which rewards you with your first five cards then & there.
Just 307 more to go!
But in FFXIV, Triple Triad Cards are obtained through various methods.
Many can be obtained directly in the Gold Saucer. The Triple Triad Trader (The Manderville Gold Saucer – Card Square, X:4 Y:7) offers the following:
|Stormblood Tataru Taru||96,000 MGP|
|Muud Suud||1,500 MGP|
|Gold Saucer Attendant||5,000 MGP|
|Raya-O-Senna & A-Ruhn-Senna||4,800 MGP|
|Godbert Manderville||9,600 MGP|
|Julyan Manderville||14,400 MGP|
|Valens van Varro||22,400 MGP|
|Lunar Ifrit||22,400 MGP|
|Senor Sabotender||200,000 MGP|
|Nanamo Ul Namo||400,000 MGP|
|Raubahn & Pipin||400,000 MGP|
|Cloud Strife||1,000,000 MGP|
|Noctis Lucis Caelum||200,000 MGP|
Some of these will not appear for sale until you progress far enough in the Main Story. Others will require completion of certain sidequests.
This Trader additionally offers Triple Triad Booster Packs, which contain the following cards (CTRL+F if you’re looking for a specific card):

Many of these are also available from an NPC, Duty, or Trial.
But if you’d like to avoid grinding fights or matches then you can opt to try your luck with these boosters.
As mentioned earlier, many cards can be obtained in multiple ways.
Trials, Dungeons, NPCs, Vendors, and even FATEs offer them as rewards.
Keep in mind that some NPCs holding rarer cards aren’t readily available. You’ll need to finish many sidequest chains to unlock them, like Beast Tribe Quests.
Other NPCs can be tucked away in obscure locations, like the Idle Imperial pictured above.
He’s loitering in the middle of nowhere in Azys Lla, and holds four cards you’ll need.
Just watch your map for the Triple Triad icon and keep your deck readily in hand. You’ll have your Magicked Card Mount in no time.
