A wind-up minion version of Emet-Selch’s form of Endwalker was added in Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.3. This minion, named Wind-up Aidoneus, isn’t specifically named Emet-Selch, but it’s clear to everyone that it is. How to unlock the wind-up Aidoneus
How to get Wind-up Aidoneus Minion in FFXIV
The Raising Minion Aidoneus is a reward from The Shifting Gymnasion Agonon dungeon. The minion has a chance to appear in one of the treasure chests found in this dungeon. In addition, the wind-up Aidoneus is also tradable and marketable. That means you might be able to spot one on the market board.
However, due to the difficulty of obtaining the minion, it is currently being sold for several million gil. That price will fall over time, but it’s likely to 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 most important 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 true name is Hades while Emet-Selch is just his title. A bit of pun in naming this minion!
