Quest 1: Eggstreme Eggstrapolation

  • This is the first quest of the FFXIV egg hunt event. To launch this quest, you need to head to Old Gridania (X: 10.2, Y: 9.4). There you'll meet your quest-giver Jihli Aliapoh.
  • Once there, Jihli Aliapoh will tell you her problem and ask you to find Nonotta at the Knot (X: 11, Y: 12). and have a conversation. Once you do, the next quest, " A Sheltered Eggsistence " will unlock.
  • You will also receive your first set of rewards: 3360 XP, 220 Coins and the Spriggan Jacket

Quest Story Overview

Jihli Aliapoh is the originator of the annual Hatching–tide festival. She's also prone to having visions. When you meet up with her, you'll discover she's had one of her prophetic dreams, in which she saw Riggy the spriggan hiding a beautifully decorated egg. Jihli is convinced that the events in her vision will have a direct impact the success of her festival and so she's planned to reenact exactly what she saw. She requests that Riggy and Nonotta hide the eggs for her. Unfortunately for you, this rascally pair has made the job of finding the eggs extraordinarily difficult as they've devised and map with a bunch of difficult-to-follow clues that are meant to lead you to each egg.

Quest 2: A Shelltered Eggsistence - Egg Location 1
