Earlier in April, Square Enix took the decision to delay Final Fantasy XIV's patch 5.3 indefinitely, based on the difficulties the development team faced with the ongoing work from home restrictions. The studio promised major changes and additions coming to the game, including the ability to fly once you complete "The Ultima Weapon" quest, the final act for Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers' main scenario, and more. Since there isn't a definitive timeline as to when the development team will return back to their full capacity and complete patch 5.3, dubbed Reflections in Crystal, the developer decided to kick off a Moogle Treasure Trove event from now untill the update's release.
The Moogle Treasure Trove event brings brand new items for players to earn, alongside fan-requested items that were available earlier but went away. There will be several challenges for players to overcome, all marked with a moogle icon in the quest menu, offering the community a chance to earn irregular tomestones. Those mysterious relics of the Allagan Empire you gather are all exchangeable at the itinerant moogle shops for special items, including Mameshiba Neckerchief, Ixion Clarion, Demonic Lanner Whistle, and many more.
The challenges available offer players a varying amount of irregular tomestones based on their difficulty and the challenges you need to overcome to earn it. The event kicks off on Monday, May 18, at 1AM PDT. For now, there is no set end date for the Moogle Treasure Trove, but it will end once the studio releases patch 5.3. That patch was previously targeting mid-June, so that is at the least how long you'll to play through this. Once the studio shares more information on the update's timeline, we will update our readers.
