Your First Eggs
Your first goal is to figure out what is going on. Basically in each city there are some Moogles that are giving out initial eggs. You get one free egg every Earth hour (or Vana'Diel day) from the Moogle in the center. Your first goal will be to collect the first 3 letters of your name in eggs. Trade them in and you will earn your Egg Helm. However, it is not as hard as getting a random egg and finding people with the eggs you need. Rather, you can find someone named such that their first initial and the egg you need are the same. For example if you invite "Chapel" you will get a C egg. If you are partied with multiple people you will get to choose which one you want. If the person you pick is wearing the Egg Helm at this time, you will get the first two letters of their name.
- You will get one bonus event egg randomly by trading any of the following to the Moogle:
- You will get two bonus event eggs (same letters) by trading the following:
- 1 Party Egg (HQ of colored egg)
- You will get three bonus event eggs (same letters) by trading the following:
- 1 Lucky Egg (Rare drop from some Crawlers)
Warning: If your inventory is full when you speak to the Moogle for your free egg, the moogle will try to give you the egg and you will receive the message "You cannot obtain the "<Letter>" Egg". You will not be able to get another free egg until the next Vana'diel day, your egg for the current day was lost.
Rewards for "7 of a kind", "Initial 8", as well as the Orphic Egg and National Eggs are the same as last year. However, this year they've added the Jeweled Egg as well. To obtain a Jeweled Egg, first obtain one of the National Eggs, either from this year, or one you've kept from previous years. All you have to do is trade the first 5 letters of a region controlled by the nation you have a Nation Egg for, and you will receive a Jeweled Egg. For example, if you have a Flower Egg, you check the conquest, and trade the first 5 letters of any region controlled by Windurst.
Here's a more organized recap on how to obtain this year's and last year's rewards:
Before getting any of the reward eggs for the event, you must first complete the "First Three."
