In Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.3, a wind-up minion version of Emet-Selch’s form of Endwalker was added. Called Wind-up Aidoneus, this minion isn’t explicitly named Emet-Selch, but it’s obvious to everyone that it is. Here’s how to unlock the wind-up Aidoneus

How to get the Wind-up Aidoneus minion in FFXIV

The wind-up Aidoneus minion is a reward from The Shifting Gymnasion’s Agonon dungeon. The minion has a chance to appear in one of the treasure chests of that dungeon. In addition, the Wind-up Aidoneus is also tradable and tradable. That means you might be able to find one on the Market board.

However, due to the difficulty of obtaining the minion, it currently sells for several million gil. This price will decrease over time, but it is likely that it will remain expensive for the foreseeable future.

What is the wind-up Aidoneus?

The Wind-up Aidoneus is a representation of Emet-Selch, the main villain of Shadowbringers, and one of our main allies in Endwalker. We first met Emet-Selch in Shadowbringers, but his true form wasn’t revealed until Endwalker.

In Greek mythology, Aidoneus was a king who was the husband of Persephone. However, in some legends, the role of Aidoneus was replaced by Hades, lord of the underworld. We know from Shadowbringers and Endwalker that Emet-Selch’s real name is Hades, while Emet-Selch is just his title. A little pun on the naming of this minion!
