The Falcon Ignition Key is required to obtain the Falcon Mount in Final Fantasy XIV. If you’ve been waiting to claim this airship, don’t hesitate; the Falcon Ignition Key is only available through the Moogle Treasure Trove event. This event begins on March 15 and ends at the launch of Patch 5.5, part one of which goes live on April 13.

Moogle Treasure Trove Event

Since the Falcon Ignition Key is an item from past events, the only way to obtain it now is through the upcoming Moogle Treasure Trove: The Hunt for Esoterics event. This event begins on March 15 at 1 AM PT and lasts until the launch of patch 5.5. Part one of patch 5.5 launches on April 13, so you’ll need get your ignition key before then to get the Falcon Mount.
