|It's that time again folks! 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, and trade in assorted combinations for goodies. There are 3 new furnishings (based on the three starting cities) if you find the "hidden" combinations, and lots of new ways to get eggs!|
Every game day, you can talk to the moogle and get one initial egg. 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, Mirriam, group with Cuer and Palos, I can choose a C Egg or a P Egg. You may also get one extra egg per Vanadiel day by trading 12 Bird Eggs, 12 Hard-Boiled Eggs, 6 Lizard Eggs, 1 Soft-Boiled Egg or 1 Colored Egg to the Moogle. Trading a Party Egg to the Moogle will get you 2 extra eggs, and trading a Lucky Egg to the Moogle will get you 3 extra eggs. The eggs you receive will be random. If you try to trade a Warm Egg to the Moogle, he will tell you "Ku........po! I can't egg-cept such a rare item. You should take more care of your belongings, kupo!" You may also get 1 egg per day by harvesting, logging or mining. (Odd, isn't it?).
The first thing you will need to do is collect the first three letters of your name. So, for Mirriam, I need an M, I and R Egg. Turn these into the moogle, and you will get Chocobo Tickets or Colored Drops. If you trade in the eggs and you already have the item the Moogle wants to give you, he will tell you to sort your inventory and come back. You will not lose your eggs, however.
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, and then the next 7 letters of the alphabet. So, for Mirriam, I would need an M, N, O, P, Q, R, S and T egg. Trading for these combinations will get you either a Happy Egg or 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.
Finding the hidden combination will get you the different egg furniture pieces. In order to get the particular eggs, you will need to trade the first 5 letters of a region the country whose egg you want to receive owns. To receive the Bastokan Lamp Egg, I could trade G U S T and A Eggs. To receive the Windurstian Flower Egg, I could trade S A R U and T Eggs. To receive the San d'Orian Wing Egg, I could trade in R O N F and A Eggs. This does not have to be done in any particular city. IE, you can get the Flower Egg in San d'Oria, as long as you trade in the right combination. Trading in the wrong combination will get you turned into a scary Beastman!
