Can I still get this item?
If so how do I go about obtaining it?

Just out of curiousity...
What good is this to a Ranger?
RE: Hmmm.
# Apr 11 2006 at 11:14 PM Rating: Decent
well maybe not this one but, there are 3 different kind of egg on this event
Fortune Egg, Happy Egg, and Orphic Egg.

Maybe for Ranger the Happy Egg (to raise some HP)or the Orphic Egg (after activating the latent) will be better.
It mainly a quest for fun imo =3
Another Combination

I've noticed ya'll forgot one of the egg combinations, If you trade in the Element for the day it is you get a special egg. Forgot what the name of it is, but it is +1 singing, and some other buffs when you have a song on ya.

To get mine I traded in ICE on iceday

I was out lvling up my WHM yesterday with this equiped and managed to throw it =( Strange thing is, that I had the system shortcut for Ranged Attack disabled under config > misc. I did not have a macro made on that set for /ra either. Still, I hit alt-2 for Stone on a mob but instead, my character "blinked" for a sec and I got a horrible feeling. I checked my equipment and sure enough, the Fortune Egg was no longer in my inventory.I rechecked my macro and it was correct ( /ma "Stone" <t> ). Oh well, I keep trying to tell myself that my Morion Tathlum is just as good, but I miss it. And now I have a deathly fear of losing anything in the Ammo slot.
Very good range for blm
# Apr 13 2005 at 5:32 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah I got this thing (was a botch tog et 7 i eggs in a row ><) and it rocks my socks off. Its giving the same amount of mp a morion tathlum would give me and was way cheaper :D and the mp will only keep rising. Thank you %1 mp rise. Anyways its my personal opinion that this is the greatest range for a mage job say between 20-36 cuz by 20 you have mp in the triple digits.

Egg Event 2005

103 posts
Here we go:
I just finished this event and I'm layin' down my info;

First off, to get eggs you must talk to the moogle in your nation. He will give you one per day for free. You can get another one by trading him either a Color Egg or a Party Egg.

Note: If you are in a party you can choose your egg from a list. The list will be the first letter of your party members' name excluding yours. This is a good strategy for getting the letter eggs you want.

(Also Note: Party Egg will get you two more eggs from moogle, where as color egg will only get you one) Both these eggs can be bought in the auction house (Food>>Meat&Eggs), Crafted
(Cooking lvl66 - Fire Crystal Distilled Water x1, La Theine Cabbage x1, San d'Orian Carrot x1, Lizard Egg x1)
(Note: Party Egg is the HQ of Color Egg), or bought by some the people around you.

Now it's time to trade some eggs;

You can trade your egg(s) that you got with the people near you (trust me, there are A LOT of people near you XD) You can also bazaar them. People on Odin were selling 1-5k mostly with some others selling 10k or more. Its cheapest to wait a couple game days and stock up on eggs to trade instead of just buying them from people.

-First; You MUST trade the moogle 3 eggs with the first three letters of your name.
EX: My name is Leafix, so I traded L-E-A

You will either recieve chocobo coupons (2-4 in my experiance) or colored drops.

-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: L-M-N-O-P-Q-R-S
(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

-The "Secret Combo" (Wing Egg, Lamp Egg, Flower Egg)
These are all mog house furnishings. To get them you must trade abbreviations of controled areas to the moogle. If you trade V-A-D-E-L to the moogle, you will get the egg furniture of the nation that is in the lead for that week. It's usually easier then to trade G-U-S-T-A for (bastok) Lamp egg, R-O-N-F-A for (sandy) Wing egg, and S-A-R-U-T for (windy) Flower egg. If you trade the letters of an area not under any control you will be turned into a beastman.
Ex of costume effect: If you trade Q-U-F-I-M to the moogle and that area is under beastmen control, you will be turned into a beastman.
This is my experiance with how the secret combo works.
These eggs are Rare/Ex
NOTE: The Egg furnishing, being rare/ex, is not tradeable or bazaarable. Nor can it be sole in the AH. However, for some reason, it can be sent to others through the delivery system at the auction houses. I have tried this by trading it to my mule as well as other people. So, it IS possible to sell these but be careful who you deal with as they could just keep it and not pay you if you send it to them.

There's my input. Thank you for reading this, and remember to have fun with this event. Don't be a greedy n00b and sell all your eggs for 10k+ to others <.< >.>

Thanks again ^^

-The "Secret Combo" (Wing Egg, Lamp Egg, Flower Egg)
To my best knowledge, this is how these work; These are all mog house furnishings. To get them you must trade the eggs V-A-D-E-L to the moogle. HOWEVER, I am very sure that you must be a citizen of the nation you are in to recieve its egg furnishing. Otherwise you get the costume effect.
Ex of costume: If you trade VADEL to the moogle in San d'Oria and you are Bastokian you will be turned into a Quatav.
This is my experiance with how the secret combo works. I have seen a Bastokian be turned into a Quatav in San d'Oria trading these letters.
I have recieved the Wing Egg myself in Sandy and as a member of Sandy. Lamp egg is for Bastok and the Flower egg is for Windurst.
Stats for Wing Egg: Furnishing. Earth STG: 1 rare/ex

It does not matter what country you are a resident of. What you need to do is check the region info. If you trade in the first 5 letters of any region under Sandorian control, you get the Sandy Egg. If you trade in the first 5 letters of any region under Bastokan control, you get the Bastok Egg.If you trade in the first 5 letters of any region under Windurst control, you get the Windy Egg. I have received all 3 and this is what I did. If you trade in the first 5 of a region under Beastmen control, that is when you get the costume effect. Hope this clears that up.

I'm curious...someone in my LS said there is a +1 of this egg...that is like INT +10 MND +10 +1% MP and +2 VIT...I doubted his claim...however if this existed, this would be a godsend for my RDM...can anyone confirm this claim to be false or true?

hello fellow diabolos-ian... or something ^^ if this were true, youd be seeing alot and i mean ALOT of mages already having this and basically this would be the godliest ranged ammo period (lvl 1 int & mnd +10????)....morion and phantom talthums would be worthless (wait no they wouldnt the earrings there heh forgot about that)... if it were true however i would wear it as my drk (till lightning bow and bomb core^^) unfortunately, your ls mate was just being a **** or ******** with you as it is not true, SE wouldnt make a godly item such as that as an event item

but take a moment and imagine if it was ...every mage gets into a frenzy... eggs selling for 50k each lol (if not more)

He might be talking about Imperial Egg or Tsar's Egg... It's lvl 75 but it's actually CHR+3 and HP recoverd while healing +3 for Imperial, +1 more for each for Tsar's (HQ). Anyways, you never know, they might add something like that, or there may have been a glitch, OR somebody might have hacked and made an egg like that for themselves.
egg myths
# Mar 25 2005 at 12:42 PM Rating: Decent
I know there's a lot of confusion going on for this quest (as with any special event) so after obtaining both eggs last night I'd like to clarify some myths players are using to get your gil.

Claim: This (insert letter here) egg is very rare, so it's worth more money!

-Really, these eggs are not worth the thousands of gil they're being advertised for. One egg can be earned per day by talking with the moogle. Any letter can be obtained by forming a party with a person who has that letter as the first letter of their name when you click on the moogle to recieve your daily egg. Do a /sea (letter) of that area, and ask someone if they wouldn't mind joining your party for a moment for the Easter quest. If you talk to the moogle alone, you will recieve a random letter egg.

Claim: You need (random word) combination of letters to get your fourtune/happy eggs, and I'm selling them at <pos>!

-The only way to get the eggs is by first trading the first three letters of your name (for me, XIA), then:

For the Happy egg (HP egg):

Trade the "initial 8", the first letter of your name and the following 7 letters in alphabetical order. So, for me it was x y z a b c d e (starting over at A again if your name runs over)

For the Fortune egg (MP egg):

Trade the "straight 7", just 7 eggs of the same letter. I got this quickly, a friend of mine has three mules; he brought them all to windy for the quest. Each day I formed a party with each of his mules, who all got the X egg. After 2 days I had 8 X eggs, this way was really quick and easy to do.

I hope this helped someone to get their eggs stress-free ^^ Good luck and remember to have fun with it!

RE: egg myths
# Mar 25 2005 at 1:12 PM Rating: Decent
Looks like it's random which prizes you get for (the first 3) combination -- I got red drops for my First 3, Happy Egg for my Straight 8, and Fortune Egg for my 7 of a Kind, and clear drops for my 2nd First 3.

(edit) that makes sense about the day. FYI, if u talk to moogle with full inventory you will lose the free egg, but if you try to get one of the rewards with full inventory it will NOT cost you your eggs.

I got a chocobo ticket for my first 3 trade-in, and a fire drop the second time, the color of the drop you recieve depends on what day you turn in your eggs ^^

Actually, you seem to agree with the person above. It still could be random, but everyone I have talked to has gotten the Happy Egg for the Initial 8 and the Fortune Egg for 7 of a Kind, including me. Just thought I'd put in my two cents :)
Obtaining Eggs in Easter2005

To obtain the eggs..

If I was trading eggs the initial 3 would be "T" "I" "A".
Then, if I wanted a Fortune Egg I would use any type of letter x7, so ie. TTTTTTT.
For a Happy Egg, you need to trade a total of 8 eggs according to the alphabet beginning with your initial letter. So for me it would be "T" "U" "V" "W" "X" "Y" "Z" and going back from the beginning "A". Also rumored that after trading the first 7-of-a-kind for a Fortune Egg you can get a Happy Egg by getting another 7-of-a-kind set.

Happy Egg hunting, and Happy Easter..

(edit: Thank you Tsuuga)

I'm laughing hysterically since a friend of mine who is on my ls just threw his egg away yesterday accidentally...then smacked himself for it
He threw it at a gob...and it bounced off doing nothing...to which Isam (my friend) said "I guess he ate it"...and then smacked himself some more.

Does anyone think Square will do this event again or will they try something completely new?

I would be pleasently surprised if they did, but repeating this event wouldn't add any value to veteran players nor provide them with anything new. In fact, it cheapens the game for them to repeat this event.

I would really like to have one, but I'm not placing my hopes in it.

all of you that have this egg are extremly lucky, i had just started playing when this event thing was almost over and i did not even know what the egg was for so i just keep it in my mog house and threw it out not long ago once i figured out that it was for the easter event thing only

nothing to really get upset over, actually there are ranged weapons out there with better stats than this. 1% mp means if you had 800 mp you would get enough mp from this for an extra cure I.

vit +1 nice but nothing you'll notice.
RE: unlucky
# Nov 27 2004 at 8:00 AM Rating: Decent
what are you kidding? This item is god for summoners. the best mp boost for ranged slot is the +10 off the Phantom Tathlum (becides the mantra coin but who can afford that let alone the tathlum). by lvl 66 (the lvl you can equip the phantom tathlum) a taru summoner should have about 1200mp (with alright equipment) thats a +12 off a item that is free to get... all in all i cant wait for easter to role around to get this item. It's a must for any summoner.

These were given out easter week/weekend by moogles. What you had to do was take your letter eggs (7 of your first name *sigh*) then trade them to the moogle. This is, of course, after trading the first 3 letters of your name in. I myself never got this egg in particular cause I wanted the hp ^^;; *Why, I do not know*
It is pretty useful now that im a level 36 galka pld :D

Wow, I want one of these. I hardly ever have anything in my ammo/bait slot, and this would work perfect with my planned job: Paladin.

So you can only get them from some Easter holiday event? Oh well, maybe next year.

The name was changed in the patch applied on April 21st so it no longer conflicts with the other item named 'Lucky Egg.' The screenshot is obviously from when they were called 'Lucky Eggs.'

This is a great item for a higher-level mage, especially considering how easy it was to acquire. Puts the halloween gear to shame, really.
