Ironically Anak Stag in FFXV is an enemy that we fight in Northern Leide, which is about Northeast of Prairie Outpost. He is easily recognizable by his massive antlers, which is the largest of the Anak-type breed. However, in Final Fantasy: A New Empire, we welcome him into our Royal Stables to aid us with fighting along the sidelines in Eos. The Anak Stag Mount will boost your Monster Troops, King of Lucis, and your Dark Earth Troops.
In this guide, we will go over a small quick background about the Royal Stables along with
- Anak Stag stats and the grand total
- Anak Stag Power of Mount skills
- Where should we focus on skilling him?
- Anak Stag Training Signet Chart
- How does he match to the powerful Lucky Chocobo?
Let’s give a quick review of the Royal Stables before we analyze the Anak Stag Mount.
The Royal Stables is the place for your Mounts. Just like the Astral Shrine, you can discover each of them in here, even the ones you do not have! It’s a fabulous way to examine their skills and decide if they are right for you based on your gameplay style.
You may also skill your Mounts to harmonize them for your strategic needs. If you are more of a Defense player, then you will gravitate towards the left side, whether as the attackers will lean more in the middle. The Utility on the right side is more balanced, which will be useful in every circumstance. The higher the levels, the more HP they have, the more exceptional their chances are surviving in battle should you have the stats supporting them.
It is essential to remember, you can reskill them for FREE at any time you wish, so don’t fret if you mess up or decide to change your style of gameplay in the future. Though, once they reach their maxed level, the Mounts do provide enough Skill Points to cover just about everything.
Next, let’s dig into the Anak Stag Mount and see how powerful he appears to be!
(February 25th, 2020)
In order to unlock Anak Stag, your Royal Stables requires to be at level one, and you need 100,000 Anak Training Signets. So far, it is only purchasable by packs through the Gold Store. Wanna know how many you need? There is a chart below. Keep reading!
When unlocked, you will get 70 Skill Points to incorporate into his Skill Tree. Then you will be limited to what you can skill until he reaches level 5.
As I will continue to remind you every time because this is very crucial to do so, a Mount’s overall potential is based on his Rank, Endurance, and Strength.
Rank: Combat Effectiveness
Endurance: Attack while Defending
Strength: Attack while Attacking
The higher your Mount’s Rank is, the more notable his damage will be.
When your Mount is included in a march engaging your opponents or Neutral Cities, he will use Strength to manage the amount of damage he uses.
When your Anak Stag is defending your Empire, he will depend on Endurance to absorb damage being administered upon him.

In fact, check out Aly’s latest Power of Kings update to read all about the Power of Mounts.
In this guide, we will focus on the specialties that Anak Stag has in the Power of Mounts that the others do not.

How should we skill him?
As we have reviewed the Mount itself, we can conclude that he is pretty balanced in terms of offense and defense.
When Skilling him, the Rank and Anak Stag Attack should be done right out the gate.
Next, if you have King of Lucis unlocked and powered up, then I highly recommend you skilling this area as it will benefit you in both situations and will play as a passive skill as long as you have your Anak Stag summoned. Also, since we rely on Elementals when attacking or defending, this would be another skill to focus on as well.
Endurance, Guardians, Earth Troops, Dark Enemy Attack Resistance, Dark Elemental and Mercenary Attack Resistance, and Mercenaries if you are defending.
Strength, Mercenaries, Armor Piercing, Monster Troops (ONLY if you have the stats to back it up with), March and Rally Size if you are more of an attacker.
When your Mount is maxed out, you will be able to skill everything to the max regardless, but at first, you may need to be a bit choosier when selecting skills.
Anak Stag Chart
The Mount requires Anak Stag Training Signets. Check the chart below to see how many!
How does he compare to the others?
The latest Mount release was the Lucky Chocobo, and at the time of release, he was the strongest one to date. But how does the Anak Stag Mount compare to him?
Let’s compare Anak Stag and Lucky Chocobo side by side and find out!
Lucky Chocobo vs. Anak Stag
Lucky Chocobo Rank:9,900
Lucky Chocobo Strength and Endurance: 5B%
Anak Stag Rank: 14,500
Anak Stag Strength and Endurance: 10B%
Comparing the Rank, Endurance, and Strength alone, it is pretty apparent who is more durable. But let’s analyze just a few more stats to make this even more apparent.
When it comes to the Mount’s attack, Anak Stag has 80B%, while Lucky Chocobo has 35B%.
Anak Stag Dark Troop stats
- 150B% Dark Troop Attack and Armor
- 50B% Dark Troop HP
Lucky Chocobo Dark Troop stats
- 185B% Dark Troop Attack
- 45B% Dark Troop HP
- 135B% Dark Troop Armor
Lucky Chocobo has more Dark Troop Attack then the Anak Stag, but is the extra 35B% worth it over the rest of the stats that Anak Stag contains?
The Lucky Chocobo does have a fantastic amount of Mount Supply stats that Anak Stag does not, but the majority of the stats are slightly more. Anak Stag also has the King of Lucis and Monster Troop stats, which are what we are all about right now.
Who knows, maybe Multi-Mount will become a thing soon, we can only hope.
What to Read Next?
Now that we have covered the latest Mount, I highly urge you to brush up on the Lucky Chocobo for comparison, then the King of Lucis and Dark Monster Troops to further strengthen your Empire and maximize your Anak Stag’s potential.
The Lucky Chocobo was the Mount that was released about a month before Anak Stag. While Anak Stag has stats that do not begin to compare to the Chocobo, the Chocobo does have its own stats that you may prefer to have. Such as Mount Supplies Proficiency.
King of Lucis
King of Lucis will play a big part when partnering your Anak Stag Mount with it, read all about Somnus and the Enclave of Lucis to utilize them both together and push your Empire to greatest heights!
Dark Monster Troops
Just like the King of Lucis, pairing Dark Monster Troops with your Mount will create some severe damage, whether attacking or defending.
