The Variant Dungeons and Criterion made their way to Final Fantasy XIV with Patch 6.25 and you might be looking to get your hands on the Silki mount. The cute rat is not that hard to get, given you know where to look.
To unlock it you'll need to complete the 12 routes in the Variant dungeon and gather all 12 survey records unlocked when finishing one.
If you're struggling to find the routes, here's our complete guide, SPOILER AHEAD.
FFXIV All Survey Records Routes for Silkie Mount in Variant Dungeon
Please note that these can be done with a fixed party, matchmaking and even alone (we tested that for you).
It took me a only around 5 hours to get all the survey notes while testing some routes and reseting, so you could be way quicker now that a guide exists!
