What is a minion in Final Fantasy XIV?

A minion is a partner, a companion who can accompany players through Eorzea. 

Minions do not have any particular function. They are just a ‘cosmetic.’

How can I obtain FFXIV minions?

Players can obtain some of them:

  • in Side Quests, 
  • in the Main Scenario Storyline,
  • in special events,

Using minion whistles allows the player to summon their minion whenever they want, in any place they want. You can do it through the Minion Guide tab of their Character Menu.
