Swords Event

You get the shinai by trading your wooden katana or lotus katana to the "???" mark that pops after the armor is defeated.If you trade it to a mithra's ??? it gives you a neck armor that has 10 charges to tele to that area's chocobo stables.

The best setup for this is RDM/RNG. Before you talk to Nomad Mog use Protect4, phalanx, haste, and stoneskin. You can almost solo a normal armor with this. Even the mithra armor cant touch you till phalanx wears. And Always CHANGE YOUR HOME POINT!!!! I dont care if you want to keep your Whitegate HP! Its just a boat ride away! Saves alot of time waiting for raise and weakness to wear.

Event Moogles are only availble during seasonal events (IE: The upcomming Summer Breeze event on the 31stof this month).

The Swords event was earlier this year, and will not be available again until next year at the earliest. Depending on the event, certain items are available to be purchased/awarded to those taking the time to participate.

Hope this helps :)

VERY cool how Square put in the wooden sword (used A LOT in kendo martial arts). The wooden sword is awesome, I own one in real life and it is with this non lethal weapon that one learns samurai sword techniques. The only person to do intense damage with a wooden sword was Musashi, who had a technique so deadly he had to "handicap" himself with a wood blade. He still accidently killed people even using the wooden sword.

Using "blades of peace" like this one are very cool because one can learn the real technique without causing much harm. Though you can give a person a harsh bonk on the head that might hurt for awhile. I need to at some point join a dojo again so that I may have some sword fights.

Hidden Effect?
# Apr 29 2005 at 6:36 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, i had my Hardwood Katana and was raising my Great Katana lvl up on rocl lizards at (F-8). Sure enough, Lizzy spawns. i claimed it. i killed it with the Hardwood katana. i started with the katana, switched to regular dual wield katanas ( simply because they Hardwood was doing 4 damage), then switched back to Hardwood Katana for a finishint\g blow, and got the boots. it was funny because i guy named Judont got the boots 2 lizzy spawns before that. i dont know if it has a hidden effect or not but i hope it does^^

The Hardwood Katana, the advanced version of this one, has an added 1hp/3sec regen on it when you're slept.

for some reason i think it might have another hidden effect. i was outside jeuno with my 65 WAR hitting some mobs with my lvl 6 G. Katana skill (thank you Wooden Katana) and everytime i hit, it would do the additional effect animation, but wouldn't say there was one. just something to think about...
How to get it
# Apr 28 2005 at 9:30 AM Rating: Decent
You get this from talking to a moogle inside the towns. Then u talk to the moogle outside of town to get the lvl 1 reduction status. Go find the Armors and attack them. You can get a Hard Katana from defeating one of the Armors. Every time u hit an Armor mob, whatever type u hit, u get that costume thing item (of that type). they stack to 12. Once u defeat one, u can trade the wooden katana for the Hard Katana. This thing is also said to have like an 80% critical hit rate according to some web page (i think). sry if it doesnt but i think it does. Just thought id post to help out if anyone has any questions on this. Also, you should get a Chocobo Bedding when u first talk to the mooogle outside the towns for the lvl. 1 reduction status.

Question. I tried for about an hour and a half last night with my LS and came up with a lot of Mochi. Do you need the final death blow for the Hardwood trade?

upgraded version

i just did this quest for like... 3 hours lol, fun lil thing to do, one of the best events yet IMO, after i was done i got the upgraded version "Hardwood Katana" DMG:5 Delay:450 All jobs Lv.1, this is kinda neat i wonder if i could do tachi:Enpi with my whm or blm now :3

either way this quest was worth it, now i can practice using Meikyo Sesusi (SP) er... sam 2h lol cant ever spell it right >.>

anyways with this lil thing i have a neat "sparing stick" as i call it to practice doing multiple skillchains back to back. <3 it :3

also im guessing this would be good for ballista sparing with friends and RPing too. as well as leveling low level jobs. but hey, only GK mages can use so whoopy do! :D
