  • Fancy yourself a mini-game master? This year we have a special treat for you! Earn yourself a HQ yukata during the festival, then participate in a mini-game while decked out in your new duds, and you'll qualify for an advanced mode offering increased challenge and reward!

Piscine Pursuits

It just wouldn't be a Sunbreeze Festival without everyone's favorite event—the thoroughly gratifying goldfish scoop! Players may test their skills of aquan acquisition at the following locations: West Ronfaure (G-11) / South Gustaberg (E-8) / East Sarutabaruta (H-8) / Rabao (F-7) Trade your catch to vendors and you'll accrue points—commensurate with the variety of fish you've snagged—that can be redeemed for a veritable host of valuable prizes!

Adventurers attired in either the Otokoeshi Yukata or Ominaeshi Yukata—festival-exclusive items acquirable as prizes from participating in the Superheroine Stage Show—are granted the privilege of teleporting between the three nations at will. Simply seek out and speak with one of the moogles posted at the following locations to be whisked away to further your festive endeavors to a new backdrop!

There's also an Item Vendor event stall in Upper Jeuno, near the exit to Batallia Downs. The Moogle there sells the +1 bathing suits from previous events, for all races.

I thought I'd mention it since it's not mentioned among the Item Vendors above.

New Goldfish Scooping rewards

The new 100-point rewards (called "Yet another mystery box") for Goldfish Scooping are:

White Butterfly (from the Goldfish Scooping NPC in W. Ronfaure G-11)
Glowfly (from the Goldfish Scooping NPC in E. Sarutabaruta H-8)
Bell Cricket (from the Goldfish Scooping NPC in S. Gustaberg E-8)

I don't know if the Rabao F-7 Goldfish Scooping NPC offers all three of these; I haven't bothered to check.

Also, you don't only get one per reward. I mean, maybe sometimes you can, but I didn't.

The three furnishings you can make with these cute little insects are:

Butterfly Cage -- storage 3 -- Wind element
Glowfly Cage -- storage 3 -- Dark element
Cricket Cage -- storage 3 -- Lightning element

These apparently have Moghancement: Conquest for their respective nations, but I haven't checked this myself. Also, their aura strength is, I've heard, four.

Anyway, these new furnishings are cute. I wouldn't cage cute li'l bugs in real life, though.

So far, there isn't much difference between this year's Sunbreeze Festival and last year's.

The Mumor story that goes along with the dancing part for the new yukatas (the robes) has been expanded, so the wait between each little group of dance "fights" is painfully long. You no longer do your dance attacks at Ullegore; he makes only a brief appearance in the show.

You still cheer Mumor on when she asks for your help, and you still do the same dance attacks, but now you're dancing at a new Mithra character in the show, who ends up befriending Mumor at the end.

The easiest way to get this part done is to use these five macros:

/cheer motion (name this macro "Cheer")
/dance1 motion (name this one "Samba")
/dance2 motion (name this one "Waltz")
/dance3 motion (name this one "Neo" or "Crystal")
/dance4 motion (name this one "Super" or "Crusher")

You may want to add a /clap motion macro as well, because cheering Mumor on can include clapping for her. I've noticed no difference, though, when I don't clap for her and I just cheer.

Anyway, target Mumor. When she stops blathering on and on with the Mithra character and actually gets to the fighting, she'll ask the audience for help. This is when you start cheering her on.

The word, "motion," typed after your emote macros, will keep you from spamming up the screen with purple text. Mumor's Mithra enemy may or may not complain about all the "incessant cheerrring."

When Mumor announces that she is about to do her special attack, she'll say something like, "Thanks for all your support! Here I go!" This is when you should stop cheering for her and instead target the Mithra, whose name is Uka Totlihn.

Be quick with your macros, and when Mumor does her special dance attack at Uka, you do the corresponding dance:

If she does her Shining Summer Samba, you do your samba.
Her Lovely Miracle Waltz = your waltz.
Her Neo Crystal Jig = your /dance3 macro jig
Her Super Crusher Jig = your /dance4 macro jig

I think they eased the time allowed to synchronize your dance with Mumor's this year. I'm not sure. But anyway, do yours just after hers, and a message will flash in yellow: "Mumor's and <your character name>'s dancing synchronized!"

Target Mumor again while Uka retaliates. Mumor will ask again for your help, so cheer her on while she continues the battle.

This should happen 5-7-ish times per round.

When Mumor gets all weak and says, "<Puff, wheeze...>" after each round, you have ages to do whatever, because now it's story-progression time. Ullegore appears briefly at the very end to try to be menacing. After this, Mumor and then Uka will reappear and the fighting will begin all over again.

After you've received 15 dance synchro messages, speak to the Moogle who tells you about Mumor. He'll give you this year's NQ yukata. After 15 more dance synchro messages, speak to him again for this year's HQ yukata. This years's robes do not dispense any fireworks. Poo. But wearing the HQ allows for free teleport from the event tele-Moogle in each city, to another city (San d'Oria, Bastok, or Windurst). This is a great time to do some quests/missions that require jumping around between these cities.

Besides the yukatas, you may also synchro-dance for Goshikitenge, which are pretty fireworks that I love. Every dance synchro nets you five of these if you're not getting a yukata.

--------------------------------------------------

The mini-game in each city seems exactly the same as last year's, if I remember last year's correctly. I think they may cost less to play this year, but I'm not sure. This year they are 10 gil per play.

Wear the HQ yukata to play each game in "hard" mode and receive six instead of three of the food reward items, as well as a colored prize balloon key item. Win each of the three key items from winning on hard mode in San d'Oria, Bastok, and Windurst, then speak to the event Moogle to receive the hideous blue and gold two-piece HQ swimsuit -- Top +1 and Shorts +1 -- that you may use once per week for a free teleport to Purgo-Norgo Isle. Well, the Top +1 has the teleport. I don't think you have to wear the shorts.

If, like me, you already had this +1 swim suit top and bottom, you will receive a "colored drop" medicine item instead. These are tradable but not sellable on the AH or to NPC's. Each gives a medicated effect, so be careful in using them. Should you desire, you can receive them all if you keep collecting the prize balloon key items. Just speak to the Moogle again if he tries to give you a drop you already have. Each color boosts a different stat for 15 minutes but will give you "medicated" status for one hour. Clear Drop = INT +5; Green = AGI +5; Yellow = VIT +5; Purple = DEX +5; Blue = MND +5; White = CHR +5; Red = STR +5; Black = Instant Warp.

The mini-game in Windurst is, to me, trickier than the Sandy and Basty ones. It's not too bad, though, and it has cute baby choco sound effects. It's called "Chocobo Chick Catchery." Play by speaking to Rokor-Makor @ K-12 Windurst Woods. You must catch Chocobos but avoid Mandragoras. The food reward is Cotton Candy x6 on hard mode; x3 on normal. Key item reward for winning hard mode is a Green Prize Balloon.

The San d'Oria mini-game is "Spot the Difference," and it's very easy. Estiliphire @ H-9 South San d'Oria. Food reward: Melon Snowcone x6 on hard mode; x3 normal. Key item reward for winning hard mode: Red Prize Balloon.

Bastok's mini-game is "Shootin' Gallery." Shoot all the mobs that appear -- except Pixies! This is the easiest game -- to me, anyway. Klaas @ K-8 Port Bastok, south of Beligen Square. Food reward: M&P Doner Kebab x6 hard mode; x3 normal. Key item reward for winning hard mode: Blue Prize Balloon.

Again, to play on hard mode, wear the HQ yukata from the Mumor dancing. Once you have the three prize balloon key items, speak to the main event Moogle (not the tele one or the vendor one) in one of the three game cities for your +1 ugly blue swimsuit top and shorts. I did this on a mule too, to see if you still get the +1 if you don't have the NQ blue swim suit. You do get the +1 for the prize balloon key items, even if you don't already have the NQ.

And again, if you already have the +1 ugly blue top and bottom, the Moogle will give you a colored drop food item.

-------------------------------------------------------

I haven't done the goldfish-scooping yet this year. I'm hoping for some cooler rewards than last year. Some of those fireworks stunk! But the goldfish sets were good since they're used in crafting little goldfish bowl furnishings.

Anyway, have fun!

[Edited to add: Woot! New rewards for the goldfish scooping, which are used in new furnishings! I'm gonna make the cricket cage!]

[And edited again much later to fix a typo ^^]

Which moogle teleports you? I now have the HG yukata and cannot find which one. The moogle that gave me the yukata just keeps talking about the festival, and the other moogles are just vendors for the gear.

Many thanks.

It's the Moogle nearest each city's mini-game event, not the Moogle for the Mumor part of the event.

So the Tele-Moogle for San d'Oria is in S. Sandy in Victory Square, near the zone to North Sandy.

In Windurst, the Tele-Moogle is in Windy Woods, by Leviathan's Gate / the zone to E. Sarutabaruta.

Bastok's Tele-Moogle is in Port Basty in Beligen Square, near the zone to North Gustaberg.
