Moogle wants a special combination of Easter Eggs. You can get one free one from him per day or you can get them by logging, mining, and harvesting.

I can't believe this isnt posted yet, but if you spell the first 5 letters of a region that is controlled by Beastmen, you get turned into a Beastmen for 3 mins or so, just like the Halloween costumes.

I figured it out! This year the special combos are based on CONQUEST results so they will vary from server to server!
If you trade:
first three letters of your name: (L I N in my case) you get a drop or chocobo ticket.
If you trade straight 8 starting with 1st letter of your name you get a Happy egg. (L M N O P Q R S in my case)
If you trade any 7 of a kind (I traded 7 "M" eggs) you get a Lucky Egg
Now it doesn't matter which city you are in when you trade
V A N A D I E L you will get the egg furnishing that corresponds to whichever nation is leading in conquest! Because they "control vanadiel". If you trade any 1st five letters of a region controlled by the city you are in then you will get an egg furnishing from that nation. Ta da! 2005 egg hunt cleared up! Happy hunting!
*edit* Leave out the cardinal directions on region names! exmaple: trade G U S T A not N O R T H for North Gustaberg

Are you sure that's really why VANADIEL got you the wing egg? I'm not sure which server you're on, but up 'til this past sunday, VALDEaunia was under sandorian control, and they were the dominant nation. If VAnaDiEL doesn't work, it would still get you the Wing Egg and give you the N, A, and I back because of Valdeaunia. This week, Windurst has control of Valdeaunia and the rest of the world, so either way it would come back with windy's egg, so I can't really test it any better now, but somebody count your INA eggs if you try VANADIEL and post back results!

I spelled the first three letters of my name and got a White Drop and now I don't know what to do with it!
Unfortunately, it got me hooked so I spent almost all of my hard earned 40k and traded eggs to get 7 T's for the Straight 7. Then I gathered T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z, and A for the Initial Straight 8 (Found out that when you get to the end you start over at the beginning of the alphabet - hopefully that is helpful to somebody) and got both the Fortune Egg and the Happy Egg.
Finally - In Bastok I gathered the letters S A R U T and was able to get the Flower Egg. It's actually a really cool little egg-light thing when you put it in your mog house! I'm going to try for the last two items later!
So go have fun trying to slog through all the lag and gather the eggs! The Easter Rarab has hit the towns!

ok so the secret combo for the egg lamp is:
you have to trade the first 5 letters of a region owned by the city you want the lamp from.

Example: sarutabaruta owned by windurst....trade S A R U T eggs and get windurst egg lamp

ronfaure-->R O N F A sandoria egg lamp

and for some reason V A N A D I E L = bastok egg lamp
give me moneeeey

I wasn't on last year... Can someone explain this one for me?

OK, here goes...

For those who remember last year's Easter Egg Event, many aspects of this event are the same: you talk to the moogle, get eggs, trade in assorted combinations for goodies. There are 3 new furnishings (based on the tree starting cities) if you find the "hidden" combinations, and lots of new ways to get eggs!

Getting Eggs:Every game day (Vana'diel day that is), you can talk to the moogle and get one initial egg, with a random letter.
One way to get an egg you need is to group with other people before you talk to the Moogle, you may then choose an egg based on the initials of the people you are grouped with (excluding yourself), so if I, Demetress, group with Alphamale and Berzerky, I can choose a A Egg or a B Egg, Alphamale can choose a B or D egg and Berzerky can choose between A end D eggs.

You may also get one extra egg per Vanadiel day by trading 12 Bird Eggs, 12 Hard-Boiled Eggs, 6 Lizard Eggs or 1 Colored Egg to the moogle.

Trading a Lucky Egg to a Moogle will get you 3 extra eggs. These eggs will be random. You may also get eggs by harvesting, logging or mining. (Odd, isn't it?)

Egg Combinations:
The first thing you will need to do is collect the first three letters of your name. So, for Demetress, I need a D, E and M Egg. Trade these in with the moogle (you may only turn in one combination per day), and you will get Chocobo Tickets or Colored Drops.

The next combination you'll want to try for are the 7 of a Kind or the 8 Initial Straight. The 7 of a Kind is just as it sounds, 7 of the same letter. The 8 Initial Straight begins with the first letter of your name. So, for Demetress, I would need an D, E, F, G, H, I, J and K egg. Trading for the Initial 8 will get you a Happy Egg, and trading for the 7 of a Kind will get you a Fortune Egg.

IMPORTANT NOTE: for those of you who have a Happy Egg or Fortune Egg from last year, apparently if you try to complete the 7 of a Kind or the 8 Initial Straight, you will not get a reward, and the Moogle will still take your eggs.

Hidden Combinations:
Finding the hidden combinations for each city will get you the different egg furniture pieces, presumably. They are, for Windurst a Flower Egg, for Bastok a Lamp Egg and for San d'Oria a Wing Egg.

Moogle Locations:
Northern San d'Oria
Southern San d'Oria

Bastok Mines
Bastok Markets

Windurst Woods
Windurst Waters

You can get all 3 furnishing eggs--just give letters of a region controlled by each city.
Apparently people are saying there is a "wind egg". Please be assured that it's simply a typo on the "wing egg". The furnishing eggs are great, looks great with my Christmas trees XD

I've been hoping and praying they don't repeat this event. Hopefully still... /em crosses fingers. it won't. lol.

I'm sure some people had fun but it was too much chaos for my liking. Crazy seeing a level 5 person who just started yesterday just break 100,000 gil for selling eggs.

lmao! It's crazy you say that! I began playing during the egg hunt, and exactly like you said, I made 150k+ during my 1st week on the game. I was disappointed to find out gil was much harder to come by after that event was over. But I agree, you can't get much luckier than that. ^^

Happy Egg is obtained by making the "Straight 8."
You first need to have traded in the initial three, or the first three letters of your name. Then you'll need to collect and trade in the first letter of your name followed by the next seven letters alphabetically from it. Example:



These letters will get you the Happy Egg.

For the Fortune Egg you'll need to trade in 7 of the same letters to the Mog. I believe any letter will do, as long as you give the fuzzy guy 7 of em.

Now...anyone got any hints for the new combos that have been added?

Notice it says 2004 Easter Egg-Stravaganza. That was last year. At least at the time of this posting, SE hasn't said what the 2005 event will be.
