The Vinegaroon is a pretty nasty-looking beast; making it the perfect mount!

How to unlock FFXIV Endwalker Hunts

While on the surface getting your very own Vinegaroon appears pretty simple, there are a few prerequisites you’ll need to complete in order to tame this volatile creature.

The Vinegaroon is only obtainable by doing Endwalker hunts, but in order to unlock these you’ll need to complete a series of different quests in A Realm Reborn and Heavensward respectively.
