Where to Get Gomphotherium Skin in FFXIV

There are a few different ways to get Gomphotherium Skin and it honestly comes down to how much effort or money you want to invest. If you are in a hurry to get this skin, the easiest way to obtain it is to simply buy it off of the Market Board. It can be costly this way but it is quick and simple.

Otherwise, you can trade FATE Gemstones you obtain from FATEs to any of the Gemstone NPCs in Tuliyollal, Solution Nine, and Heritage Found. The skin costs three Gemstones each. Level 99 Hunting Ventures for your Retainer can also get them.

But if you prefer to gather Gomphotherium the old fashioned way, you can get it by defeating certain enemies. Do this by heading to the following location:

  • Heritage Found: X: 15.2, Y: 15.0

Here, you will find the level 99 Gomphotherium enemies in the wild. Defeating them will give you a chance of obtaining their skins for free.
