Description

PlayOnline announcement:

As the days become warmer, and Poroggo begin to sing dreamily in the sun, the time of the Egg Hunt Egg-stravagana once again draws near.

The Egg Hunt Egg Hunt Egg-stravagana is a yearly event where adventurers collect special items known as "initial eggs" and try to form various combinations of letters.

Every port of Vana'diel is abuzz with rumors of the new prizes being offered during this year's event. One of these prizes is the curious "egg helm." Crafted by the finest goldsmiths, these helmets were commissioned by renowned gourmand Royaulais Chalaimbille II, Twelfth King of San d'Oria. They were created for the sole purpose of properly equipping his "Soft-boiled Knights" as they quested for the most delectable eggs in the kingdom. The second prize is rumored to be the exquisite "jeweled egg," a scintillating masterpiece crafted with the most advanced refraction techniques the Grand Duchy of Jeuno has to offer.

Recreate the egg hunts of the past with your own band of soft-boiled knights and see how many letter combinations you can make!

Before you know it, you too could be standing proud--or at least standing--with your very own egg helm!

How to Play

1. Collect Initial Eggs!

During the Egg Hunt, adventurers can receive a random initial egg from the festival moogles once every Vana'diel day. If you are in a party when speaking with a moogle, it is possible to choose an initial egg inscribed with the first letter of a party member's name. And if that party member happens to be wearing an egg helm?

  • Newly created characters must wait at least one Vana'diel day before they can receive an initial egg.

And for those who just can't get enough?

Try trading any type of "egg" to a moogle. Once every Vana'diel day, you might find that the moogles will gift you with an initial egg in exchange for a "normal" egg.

2. Make a "First 3" Combination!

First of all, try collecting the initial eggs required to make a "First 3" combination. Once you have the eggs you need, trade them to a moogle to receive your prize!

First 3: Collect the first three letters of your character's name

For egg-sample, a character with the name of "Moogle" would need to collect one [1], and two [2] initial eggs.

3. Take it to the Next Level! Once you've made a First 3, why not try something more difficult, like an "Initial Straight 8", or a "7 of a Kind"?

And for those of you who are looking for a real challenge, try discovering different, more egg-citing combinations. Maybe you'll find the right combination to take home the coveted "jeweled egg"?!

  • Don't forget that you'll have to trade in a "First 3" before you can trade in any other combos. Think of it as a sort of preliminary test!

Initial Straight 8: The first letter of your character's name, followed by the next seven letters in the alphabet. For egg-sample, a character with the name of "Moogle" would need an [3], as well as an [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9], and [10].

7 of a Kind: Seven initial eggs with the same letter. For egg-sample, you could choose to collect seven [11] initial eggs.

Hints

The moogles are usually egg-stremely reluctant to give out any of their classified information, but maybe if you are persistent enough, one will let you in on a secret or two! Make it a point to talk to them as often as possible!

orphic egg = the element of the day :)
Costumes, warp candy, and port Moogle?

Anyone know if the beastman costumes serve any purpose? Maybe partying up with someone and both getting beast costumes then standing under a decoration gives you something (like the Halloween event)?

Also, I heard a rumor that trading the same or maybe different day of the week to the moogle will give you a warp candy the second time you do it. Can anyone confirm this?

And does anyone know what the event moogle that shows up in the port district is about?

There are also the moghouse decoration eggs.

Pick a region, let's say qufim island. Qufim is now controlled by windy on valefor. I trade the first 5 letters in the name of the region "Q" "U" "F" "I" "M" and you get the decoration egg from windy (Flower Egg or something... Sandy is Wing Egg, Basty is Lamp Egg)
The new Jeweled Egg is a decoration egg from Jeuno. You receive this by repeating a nation egg. We'll do windy again. Trade the letters "S" "A" "R" "U" "T" for the Sarutabaruta region. This egg is pretty cool. I finally found a use for the flower stand thats been in my MH for the last 6 months XD.

Happy Hunting ^^/

For those who can't search the forums, or don't remember past events, here ya go:


-First; You MUST trade the moogle 3 eggs with the first three letters of your name.
EX: My name is Elanria, so I traded E-L-A
You will either recieve chocobo coupons (2-4 in my experiance) or colored drops, or you can get your Egg Helm.
Stats: Head slot: DEF: 1 rare/ex Additional Effect: Chocobo Digging Bonus

-The "Straight 7" (Fortune Egg)
Trading 7 eggs of the same letter to the moogle will net you the Fortune Egg.
Ex: L-L-L-L-L-L-L
Stats: Ammo slot: DMG: 1 Delay: 777 MP+1% VIT+1 rare/ex

-The "Initial 8" (Happy Egg)
For the Happy Egg you will need to get an egg with the first letter of your name and then the seven that follow in the alphabet.
Ex: E-F-G-H-I-J-K-L-M
(If your name starts with a letter like "Y" you would loop back to the start; Y-Z-A-B-C-D-E-F)
Stats: Ammo slot: DMG: 1 Delay: 777 HP+1% VIT+1 rare/ex

Bear in mind that these are just the ones that I have done. Past events included furnishings such as "Wing Egg", and the "Lamp Egg". You could also receive an Orphic Egg, although I never did bother to get it.
