Meeble Burrows is dungeon content in which intrepid players sneak into underground caves and participate in various research expeditions, delving ever farther until they best the dreadful beasts in the far recesses of the caverns.


  • Wings of the Goddess registered and installed.
  • 1-6 party members.
  • Level restriction: None.
  • Time limit: 15 minutes.
  • Each member must possess a Key ItemMoblin pheromone sack.
  • Not all party members need to have the expedition available. Only the leader needs to have the desired expedition unlocked for all to participate.
  • Players must possess a Grimoire for recording pages.
    • Grimoires can be purchased from the Burrow Investigator or Burrow Researcher for 2,000 gil or 200 Research Marks.

Preparing for your trek[]


  • A grimoire is needed to select a research expedition in Meeble Burrows.
  • Your deeds of valor—as well as any special bonuses conferred upon you—will be inscribed on the grimoire’s dusty parchment.
  • Your grimoire may be used multiple times, but when you embark upon courses to battle the most lurid of fiends (Expedition 5), you will have to turn it in, rendering it unusable.
  • Grimoires may be purchased from the Burrow Investigator or Burrow Researcher with either gil or Research Marks, a special type of currency acquired in Meeble Burrows.

Currently there are 5 types of grimoires available to use for recording your Expedition progress.

Moblin pheromone sack[]

Commencing a Research Expedition[]

  • Trade your grimoire to the Burrow Researcher in Sauromugue Champaign (J-7) or Batallia Downs (I-8), and have the party leader select the desired research expedition.
  • Speak to Vrednev, a Meeble located outside the burrows, to enter. There are 5 tiers of research expeditions to choose from:
    • Adjunct (easiest)
    • Assistant
    • Instructor
    • Associate Researcher
    • Researcher (hardest)
  • In order to enter the 5th expedition of a tier, all participants must have completed the previous 4. Progress for all expeditions cleared with the specific Grimoire is erased afterwards, even if the expedition is a failure.

Achieving Goals[]

  • Exploring Meeble Burrows is not about wiping out everything in sight. Instead, each expedition contains a series of three goals to achieve.
  • Clearing an expedition involves achieving at least one of the preestablished goals.
    • More goals completed means better rewards.
  • Even if you have fulfilled the conditions for a particular goal, you will not be considered to have cleared it until you use the Terminus Whistle to leave the depths of the burrows. You receive no credit for completed tasks if time runs out.
  • The Speleological Handbook located within the burrows provides spelunkers with a wealth of information, including the research tasks at hand and boons given by grimoires.

Completing an expedition[]

  • After completing an expedition, players receive a Terminus Whistle: a temporary item that teleports the party to the entrance.
  • To exit (and fail the objective), use the Hiatus Whistle, a temporary item obtained at the start of each expedition.
  • After using the Terminus Whistle, talk to the Burrow Researcher to confirm that you have completed the assigned tasks and receive credit.
  • Completion of an expendition can unlock more difficult expeditions.
  • Successfully completing goals adds boons to the player’s grimoire.


  • Research Marks are obtained after successful completion of objectives. These research marks can be exchanged to purchase items or grimoires from the Burrow Investigator and Burrow Researcher.
