Ya, when no one really knew about the festive fans, I repeated the moogle quest and got 16 festive fans.. ^^

And I sold each of them for 3k, yes 3k. Took about a half hour in a bazaar, but I made a hefty sum from it. ^^

I think the attraction of these things is sorta the same as, say, an authentic piece of Woodstock memorabilia or something. It's completely useless in an ordinary sense, but if you've got one, it says about you:

I was there. I was at Summerfest '04. I did the quest... many times. I have Summer and Festive Fans, I've got the Lord's/Lady's Yukata, I've got the Spirit Masques to show that I spent a lot of my time scooping goldfish while you didn't know this game existed or you were too busy doing mundane things that you could've done any other time. And there's no possible way you can get one now unless you've got a good bit of cash to spend.

(Or it could say: I'm rich. I've got the money to blow on these friggin' things. And the fact that they're so expensive wile being completely useless futher shows just how bloody rich I am.)

*cough* yeh I think capitalism is wierd sometimes too... the funny thing is there WAS a time when a conversation as innocent as this one could make people accuse you of being a communist =/

Many players actually have too much money. My sencondary character is a level 13 theif, and has 16k with all the latest equipment... even AFTER I used that character to send a lot of things to my main character. I send all beehive chips that drop, fire crystals, and I even bought a balance ring and sent it to another character, and that theif STILL has more money than needed! I didn't even finance the character using money from the first character, that's ALL from just accruing money as I played =D

Something they know we don't...

Is there something the purchasers of these fans know that we don't?! I mean, c'mon - 10k for a stack of 99? That is not only ridiculous, it's a complete waste of money. They are completely useless. I mean a full stack of Ninja powder (say Tsurara) doesn't even go for 10k and there is a -use- for that!

With the number of actual useful items in this game selling for almost nothing, it is a complete -wonder- that these fans sell for money at all.

I can't believe someone bought all those fans, I find fireworks are completely useless in this game. If I have any on me when I lvl, I'll use them, other then that I just drop them of give them away.

Why on Earth would you want to pay 500gil for a completely useless item such as this?

Neat hand decoration aside, I could see paying maybe 10 gil. At most.

These aren't rare or exclusive....you can carry more than one, and you can sell them in your bazaar. Same for the Festive Fan.

heh! the first time I got these I found out that you could do the quest over and over so I got about 200+ fans. The begining of that day I had 96K.......2days after I started selling them I had 300k ^_^!!! I sold them for 500gil each when no one really knew you could do the quest over and over again :D
