It's that time of year again for Final Fantasy XI
-- the time for running about spewing letters of the alphabet, frantic searching, and egg-scrutiatingly bad puns. Yes, the Egg Hunt is here again, a celebration of all things related to spring and denying birds easy access to their offspring. And while not all of the puns and tongue-in-cheek humor will go over easy, the official announcement
has both a short humor piece and instructions to keep you from getting fried.
The short version is that as you scramble about Vana'diel, you can make a point of talking to the event moogles or trading them eggs. They'll offer up one lettered egg per day for free, and more if you shell out additional eggs. Assemble the first three letters of your character's name for the simplest prize, or go for a more challenging collection like seven of a kind to get even better rewards! While it's one of the sillier and less lore-filled holiday events in Final Fantasy XI
, the Egg Hunt should still provide ample opportunity to enjoy some quality time with fellow adventurers. Read the full announcement
for all the details, and possibly to prepare yourself for the onslaught of puns. (We've even laid out a few to help.)
