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. The zone that the other members of your party is does matter, they need to be in the same city as you, though the area in that city doesn't matter. If the person you pick is wearing the Egg Helm at this time, you will get the first two letters of their name.


The first H.E.L.M.ing attempt of each Vana'diel day will also give a random lettered egg.

Moogle Locations

Festival Moogles will appear at the following locations during the festival period. Speak to them to learn the details of the festival. Southern San d'Oria (J-9) / Northern San d'Oria (D-8) Bastok Mines (I-9) / Bastok Markets (G-8) Windurst Waters (north side) (F-5) / Windurst Woods (K-10)

If your inventory is full when you speak to the Moogle for your free egg, the moogle will try to give you the egg anyway. You may receive the message "You cannot obtain the <Letter> Egg. Come back after sorting your inventory." If so, you may still get a free egg on that Vana'diel day (from any event moogle), however the egg may not be the same as the one you could not obtain. If instead you get only the message "You cannot obtain the <Letter> Egg," then you will not be able to get an egg for that Vana'diel day.

Bear in mind also if you are a new character: You must have existed within the game for at least three (game) days before you are eligible to receive the eggs. If the character was made in less than three days and you speak to the Moogle, the Event Moogles will give you the speech, but not the egg.

Rewards

Rewards for "7 of a kind", "Initial 8", as well as the Orphic Egg, National Eggs, and Jeweled Egg are the same as last year. However, this year they've added three new national eggs: Clockwork Egg, Hatchling Egg, and the Melodious Egg. To obtain any of these eggs, first obtain one of the first 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 an original National Egg for, and you will receive the new National 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 for a Hatchling Egg. Once both both national eggs are obtained, you can get a Jeweled Egg by trading yet another 5 from region controlled.

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."

First Three

  • The "First Three" is the first three letters of your name.
  • Thus, if your name was Moogle, you would trade an 'M', an 'O' and an 'O' to complete the "First Three."

Reward - Egg Helm
Egg Helm
Repeatable - Yes, but you will receive a different prize (colored drops, chocobo tickets, etc.)

Once you have completed the "First Three," you may do any of the following combinations.

Seven of a Kind

  • "Seven of a Kind" is seven eggs of the exact same letter.
  • Thus, any seven eggs of the exact same letter ("A"x7...."Z"x7) are acceptable.

Reward - Fortune Egg
Fortuneegg
Repeatable - No, if you currently already have a Fortune Egg and a Happy Egg.

Initial Straight Eight

  • "Initial Straight Eight" is eight consecutive letters of the alphabet starting with the first letter of your name.
  • Thus, if your name was Moogle, you would need an 'M', 'N', 'O', 'P', 'Q', 'R', 'S' and 'T'.
  • If you name starts with "Y", you would need 'Y', 'Z', 'A', 'B', 'C', 'D','E' and 'F'
  • Trading another "Seven of a kind" after obtaining the Fortune Egg will also result in a Happy Egg.

Reward - Happy Egg
Happy Egg
Repeatable - No, if you currently already have a Happy Egg.

Orphic Egg

  • The Orphic Egg is obtained by trading letters corresponding to the element for the day.
    • Fire will work on Firesday.
    • Air will work on Windsday.
    • Light will work on Lightsday.
    • Ice will work on Iceday.
    • Dark will work on Darksday.
    • Water will work on Watersday.
    • Earth will work on Earthsday.
    • Thunder will work on Lightningday.

Reward - Orphic Egg
OrphicEgg
Repeatable - No, if you currently already have the Orphic Egg.

National Eggs

  • There are three different furniture eggs, one representing each nation. These may be placed in your Mog House layout.
  • To obtain these eggs, trade eggs corresponding to the first five letters of a region that is currently controlled by the nation whose egg you want.
  • Thus, if you want the egg representing Bastok, and Bastok currently controls the Gustaberg region, you would need to trade the letters 'G', 'U', 'S', 'T' and 'A'.

Reward

Repeatable - Yes, as long as you do not have all the National Eggs yet.

Hatchling, Clock, Melodious Egg

  • Once you have a national egg (see above), simply trade eggs corresponding to the first five letters of a region that is currently controlled by the nation whose egg you have already received. NOTE: Make sure that you have the above eggs in your possession or in Mog House. If they are in the Event Item Storage NPC you WILL get them again. So take them out of storage before attempting to get the new eggs.
  • Thus, if you have the egg representing Bastok (Lamp Egg), trade eggs corresponding to the first five letters of a region that is currently controlled by Bastok.

Reward - Hatchling Egg (Windurst)
Hatchling Egg

Reward - Melodious Egg (San d'Oria)
Melodious Egg

Reward - Clockwork Egg (Bastok)
Clockwork Egg

Jeweled Egg

  • Once you have the two national eggs from a nation (see above), simply trade eggs corresponding to the first five letters of a region that is currently controlled by the nation whose egg you have already received.
  • Thus, if you have the eggs representing Bastok (Lamp Egg and Clockwork Egg), trade eggs corresponding to the first five letters of a region that is currently controlled by Bastok.
  • When trying to get the Jeweled Egg, make sure that you do not have the national egg in storage. If you do have the nation's egg in storage, you will get another of that nation's egg instead of the Jeweled Egg.

Reward - Jeweled Egg
Jeweled Egg
Repeatable - No, if you currently already have the Jeweled Egg.

Other Rewards

  • Trading the first five letters for a Beastman controlled region will get you a Beastman Costume.
  • Trading the letters for "Orphic" will get you a Beastman Costume.
  • Trading the incorrect element for the day (I.E. Light on Windsday) will get you a colored drop that matches the element you traded, unless you already have one, then you will get nothing.

(spell DARK)

(spell WATER)

(spell AIR)

(spell THUNDER)

(spell LIGHT)

(spell FIRE)

(spell ICE)

(spell EARTH)

  • Repeating a combination that you've already received a unique reward for (Fortune Egg, National Eggs, etc) will reward you with minor prizes seen at most special events (chocobo tickets, colored drops, costumes, etc.)
  • Trying to trade a Chocobo Egg will result with the Moogle telling you "Ku..........po! I can't egg-cept such a rare item. You should take more care of your belongings, kupo!"
