FFXIV Moogle Treasure Trove - the Second Hunt for Genesis

FFXIV Moogle Treasure Trove 2024 | The Second Hunt for Genesis | Moogle Tomestone Event 2

So let’s see how we go about earning those Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Irregular Tomestones of Genesis II and what we can exchange them for!

When is the Second Hunt for Genesis?

From Tuesday 14th May at 8am GMT (7pm AEDT), to Monday 24th June at 14:59 (GMT)/25th June 2024 at 0:59am (AEDT)

What are Irregular Tomestones of Genesis?

Moogle Treasure Trove events are rewarded though an Irregular Tomestone system.

This means it’s a separate type of currency to the Tomestones you earn for gear – Poetics, Comedy etc.

These are then traded with Itinerant Moogles for your actual rewards.

Why are they called Genesis?

This event sees you earning Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Irregular Tomestones of Genesis II. My theory on the name is because EndWalker closed a very long “chapter” in the history of Etheirys, DawnTrail will be starting a completely new thing, hence genesis.

Itinerant Moogles Alert!

Normally, Itinerant Moogles offer rewards from previous Hunts (e.g. the 10th Anniversary Hunt). This means if you have leftover tomestones then you can redeem them even after the event ends.

However, we have to pay a bit more attention this time, due to rewards coming from two sources.

  1. Mogpendium (more on this shortly)
    You cannot claim rewards from the Mogpendium after Patch 7.05
  2. Item exchanges
    (Itinerant Moogle rewards) are only possible until the release of Patch 7.1.

Where are Itinerant Moogles?

  • Gridania: South-East of the main Aetheryte
  • Limsa Lominsa: South-West of the main Atheryte
  • Ul’dah: head South-East from the primary Aetheryte. The Moogle is on the other side of the main street.

Why is this Moogle Tomestone Event Different?

  • The Moogle Treasure Troves of 2024 are different from previous years due to the Mogpendium. This not only lists qualifying duties, but is also the source of your tomestone rewards.
  • The activities you can do to earn the Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Irregular Tomestones of Genesis II are broader than prior years.
  • From the official pageExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) it could include FATEs, Grand Company Hunts, Ocean Fishing, Treasure Hunting and more.
  • You can also earn Moogle Tomestones through GATEs (the FATE equivalent in the Gold Saucer). Though I assume a certain level of success is required, which usually rules me out!
  • The qualifying activities change each week.
  • There are four types of objectives.

What is the same?

  • You still can’t earn the tomestones via Duty Support, Squadrons or Trust. This is a shame. I don’t see why they can’t given it actually would earn them slower than via player-run groups.
  • Bodiless Moogles still indicate qualifying duties in Duty Finder.
    A Moogle Head shows duties that grant Irregular Tomestones. Nice. (This is just for illustration).

If Grand Company Hunts are included, make sure you get the necessary promotion to rise up the FFXIV Grand Company Ranks.

How to Earn Irregular Tomestones of Genesis

The Mogpendium

For past Moogle Treasure Troves, a list of qualifying duties was published. (Read: dungeons, trials and raids, with some PvP thrown in). Now the qualifying activities can change – cue the Mogpendium.

First up, there will be some First Hunt shots here until I can replace them all for the Second Hunt. I am only one person and I will be prioritising the rewards at the start of the event. Thanks for patience!

What’s the Mogpendium For?

Now that’s said, here’s what the Mogpendium is all about.

You use this new UI element to do two key things: Find qualifying activities and to claim rewards for completing objectives.

This is important to remember. Your Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Irregular Tomestones of Genesis II won’t automatically go into your inventory if they are awarded via the Mogpendium. See Claiming Irregular Tomestones of Genesis.


Completing Objectives

There are various ways to earn those Tomestones in The Hunt for Genesis. They are divided into four groups: Standard, Weekly, Minimog and Ultimog:

Standard Objectives

FFXIV Standard Objectives | Moogle Treasure Trove
  • Can be completed repeatedly.
  • Irregular Tomestones granted on completion.

This is more like other Moogle Treasure Troves. Look in Duty Finder for disembodied Moogle heads for this week’s qualifying duties.

Both Ocean Fishing and GATEs also fall under Standard Objectives.

You must score 1200 in Ocean Fishing to get tomestones.

Weekly Objectives

FFXIV Weekly Objectives | Moogle Treasure Trove
  • Can be completed…once a week. No way!
  • You will be assigned a specific objective from Standard Objectives.
  • Complete this for bonus Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Irregular Tomestones of Genesis II.

Confirmed: For a dungeon standard objective, I received the regular reward for completing the standard objective (in my case 3×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II) as well as this weekly one, making a total of 23×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II for one dungeon run. Not bad, all told!

These change at 8am GMT (7pm AEDT).

Minimog Challenges

FFXIV Minimog Challenges | Moogle Treasure Trove
  • These are also Weekly.
  • You must complete one of the two objectives to get your Irregular Tomestones.
  • It could be almost anything else in-game: FATEs, Hunts, Fishing, Triple Triad. Who knows what else?

New to Triple Triad?

So was I at this event (despite having collected cards for ages!). There are many guides to playing TT. The one I found the clearest is by TheGamer.comExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab).

Ultimog Challenge

FFXIV Ultimog Challenges | Moogle Treasure Trove
  • You can complete this Once per Event Period.
  • Complete the “special tasks” for a “sizable” tomestone reward.

Second Hunt

So, for the Second Hunt for Genesis, you need to unlock Floors 51-100 of the Palace of the Dead Deep dungeon.

This is done via the Quest What Lies Beneath. Speak with the Wood Wailer Expeditionary Captain at Quarrymill in the South Shroud to pick up this quest, which is for characters Level 17 and above.

First Hunt

For the First Hunt, the Ultimog Challenge was scoring 8000 Points in one Ocean Fishing Trip. I’ll update this once the Mogpendium is updated for the Second Hunt of Genesis.

Good luck!



Struggling with a Triple Triad Minimog?

If you’re totally new, you may find passing the Minimog tricky (depending on the rules). I tested this on a different character who had almost no extra cards.

I would suggest you build your deck a bit first. Focus on the first two NPCs in the Gold Saucer, then try to collect some cards from NPCs in the City-States. Lastly, if you have excess MGP, then you can buy some cards at the Gold Saucer itself.

Which GATEs Count for Irregular Tomestones?

To find out which GATEs you can complete, head to Standard Objectives and scroll to GATE. Clicking that will give you a list of qualifying GATEs.

This was the way I earned by first 7×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Tomestones of Genesis on my L50 character.

How Tomestones are Awarded from GATEs

Most GATEs in the Gold Saucer have degrees of success. Or, from my experience, degrees of failure! That affects the amount of MGP MGP you are awarded.

One of my FFXIV Miqo'te at the end of one of the Leap of Faith GATEs.

The Genesis Tomestones follow the same pattern. The more successful you are (or the less you fail), the more tomes you get.

A Leap of Faith

You can get maximum Irregular Tomestone of Genesis Irregular Tomestones from Leap of Faith GATEs by only retrieving bronze Cactuar and completing the course.

I haven’t tested not getting all the bronze ones, though. Just focus on completing the course if (like me) you suck at getting the silver and gold Cactuar!


How to Do This Hunt on Low Level Characters

I initially thought that the Hunt for Genesis would be great for players of almost all levels. I was partially right!

Unlocking the Gold Saucer

Firstly you do need Airship Access, which is granted as part of the Level 15 “Envoy” Main Scenario Quest MSQ questlines. Secondly you must do unlock quest Normal Quest It Could Happen to YouExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab).

That unlocks a special Gold Saucer destination at the Airship Ticketer (Free from Ul’dah, but not a free return ticket).

How to Earn Irregular Tomestones for New Players

Your options are limited until Level 35. I’ll explain why in a second:

  1. Ocean Fishing:
    Assuming you have the Fishing job, pick up the quest All the Fish in the SeaExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) to unlock Ocean Fishing. Next time a ship is ready to depart you can do that part to earn tomestones. Ocean Fishing is a Standard Objective so can be completed any time a full boat can be made up.
  2. Gold Saucer GATEs:
    Like FATEs, GATEs spawn all the time in the Gold Saucer. Find out which GATEs count here.
  3. Minimog: In week 1, at least, there were two Minimogs and one suited lower-level characters or newer players (playing a relatively easy game of Triple Triad). Check both objectives and do whichever you can.
  4. Certain Dungeons from Level 50:
    The lowest-level dungeon that grants Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Irregular Tomestones of Genesis is The Sunken Temple of Qarn (Hard)External Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) at Level 50. It seems FFXIV raised the bar this time around, which makes me a little sad for newer players.

Why Is My Mogpendium Filled With Question Marks???

Because you have not yet unlocked that duty. The Mogpendium will also tell you how to unlock it.

Using Dungeons for Levelling and Tomes

In the last Genesis Chasse, you were able to use lower-level dungeons. But the second one is more restrictive. Use this event as an opportunity to level a class/job you don’t often use, then unlock the side dungeons. That way you don’t have to rush your Main Scenario Quest MSQ or main class/job and still take part in the event this way.

What I Think to the New Approach

In the past, I had to decide not to engage in a Moogle Event completely if I was not high enough in level. Now I’m L90 I can do all the things. But it’s not true of all my characters.

Having a wider variety of ways to earn the tomestones will particularly benefit newer players. And I am always in favour of that. A Tomestone event shouldn’t just be a “time sink to keep endgamers busy”. It should give players of all ranges rewards they cannot yet earn another way – or are actually much harder work to do so!

Claiming Irregular Tomestones of Genesis

As I already said, some Standard Objectives will automatically give you your Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II Irregular Tomestones of Genesis.

But, for a lot of things, you need to claim your reward. To do this, go into your Mogpendium, find completed objectives and hit the Claim Rewards button.

How to claim rewards from the Mogpendium during the Moogle Treasure Trove - The Hunt for Genesis

Reminder:
→ tomestones must be claimed from the Mogpendium by Patch 7.05
→ Tomestones must be exchanged by Patch 7.1

Irregular Tomestones of Genesis II Rewards

I have managed to get many of the events previews up here. I am → Need to work in Daytime today as FFXIV Event started by 10ammissing the Gabriel A mount and have yet to work towards the Carbuncle Earrings (because of spending tomes to fill in the gaps in this guide!). Hopefully this stuff is helpful for you!

If you have your own shot of the earrings, do Message me on MastodonExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) (or BlueSkyExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab)) with a missing screenshot. I credit any that I use. Thanks!

Recent additions:

  1. Gabriel Alpha Mount
  2. All the Allagan glamour items have previews in various races.
  3. The Behemoth Heir Minion
  4. Round Lanner Mount
  5. Missing Orchestrion Roll listings

Emerald Carbuncle Earrings 100×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Glamour for you! Image from the official site. I intend on getting these for at least one, if not two, of my characters. So I will replace this picture once I’ve acquired the other items I don’t own for this guide.

Ala Mhigan Barding 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Glamour for Your Chocobo!

There is a very good reason I don’t own this yet – it is from one of those FATEs that requires several players to clear: Rattle and HumbabaExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab).

Late Allagan Armour of Scouting 15×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Late Allagan Armour of Aiming 15×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Late Allagan Coat of Healing 15×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Ufiti 50×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Yep, get carried around by a giant gorilla mount. As you do.

Gabriel A 50×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Ah, yes, the Bozja Southern Front. That’s where you normally pick up this complex bit of Magitek. That’s one of a few reasons why I don’t have it!

I mean, it is impressive, but I needed to earn it on a character it suited, so here you go!

Direwolf 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II


Can also be obtained from the Ixal Tribal Reputation Vendor for Gil 120,000

Gullfaxi 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II


May also be obtained from The Naval (Extreme), though the drop rate for those mounts is known to suck, plus if you’re in a group you have to roll for it. Tomes might actually be easier!

Round Lanner 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

I finally have this one, whoop! Gotta collect ’em all, heh. I know, I know, that’s from the Yo-Kai Watch Event. It doesn’t help that my daughter is hooked on Pokémon, though.

Outside of Moogle Treasure Troves, you have to get HeavensWard Helm FragmentsExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) from The Minstrel’s Ballad: Thordan’s ReignExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab). Either do that 99 times (I’m not kidding) or hope the RNG favours you with the Whistle.

Auspicious Kamuy 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Screenshot by [email protected]External Link (Opens in New Window/Tab)

If you like pain, you can get these through completing The Jade Stoa ExtremeExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) 99 times. Or, at least until the RNG goes your way. Which might be 99 times!

Fashion Accessories

Cheerful Chequered Parasol 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Also available for 1200 Skybuilders’ Scrips

Minions

Initially I only had one of these minions. Now I own two but not the Goldfish/Orf. Once I get the tomes, I will update this!

Domakin

At the time of writing the Marketboard Price of this minion was Gil500-800k!

Go for tomes, or wait for them to enter the Market and bring the price down. I used the one from the official site, sharpened it and added a Ruby Sea background.

Petit Pteranodon 7×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Is/Was Available via Kupo of Fortune

This quite large pterodactyl-like minion does, in fact, sit on your shoulder, though it does look rather heavy!

Behemoth Heir 7×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II

Can also by acquired for 400×Centurio Seals in Ishgard. But honestly, I got this one with one Minimog challenge. If you want this minion, do it during this Moogle Tomestone event!

Top of Rewards ↑


Housing Decorations

There are three housing decorations up for this Moogle Tomestone event. They are all craftable. This means you can make it yourself, or get a friend/Free Company player to make it, or get it from the Market Board.

But make sure you shop around and wait for prices to reduce. I’ve put links to Universalis under each of these. That way you can see if prices are trending up or down before buying.

Universalis is a community tool and is not necessarily accurate in real time. Always check actual prices and cross-world market boards.

Crystarium Wardrobe Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II×20

A not-overly ornate wardrobe filled with an array of skirts, coats, trousers and hats. Only things you don’t mind a complete stranger seeing if they were somehow to peek into your wardrobe.

Though, by then, the weirdness of the stranger exceeds anything they might spot in there. Hopefully.

Low Bookshelf Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II×20

How low can you go? Lower than the Low Bookshelf is feasible, but at least you can pretend you’re organise with this solid wood piece of furniture.

Philosopher’s Stone Table Irregular Tomestone of Genesis II×20

A stone table for Philosophers, not a table for a Philosopher’s Stone, savvy?


Top of Rewards ↑

Crafting these Decorations

Apart from the occasional ingredient, most of the materials come from ShadowBringers zones.

When it comes to the Stack of Tomes – these can be acquired for Gil 5,000 from housing areas, and you can visit those for free once you have done the local “Where the Heart Is” or equivalent.

Check your Free Company vendors, or your neighbourhood NPCs (including the Lobby vendors in apartments). Do not pay through the nose. These tomes cannot be crafted, nor acquired any other way. See hereExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab).

Irregular Tomestones of Genesis I Rewards

Here are the rewards from the first hunt, so you can exchange any old Irregular Tomestones you’re holding onto.



Outfit Glamours

If you like the metallic Allagan look then this is the Hunt for you. Or if you like a little choker with a dog’s head over your throat, then go for it!

Note: the names of the Maiming/Striking set now match the correct thumbnail images. Additional races/body shapes may be added at a later date.

  • Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 15(1)
  • Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 15(1)
  • Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 15(1)
  • Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 100
  • (All Classes) – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 30(2)

Ultima Horns

To know the enemy become the Enemy? I’m pretty sure looking like part of the Ultima Weapon wasn’t part of Hydaelyn’s plan. Though maybe Nero’s wasn’t far off…


Late Allagan Armor of Maiming



Late Allagan Armor of Striking



Late Allagan Armor of Fending

More races will be added after the weekend (there’s been a lot to make for yous!).



Mameshiba Neckerchief

I may or may not get this item. It’s a lot of Tomestones and it’s not the sort of glamour I personally use. But if this is your thing, then no doubt the time investment is perfectly fine for you.

That’s what I like about games such as FFXIV, we don’t all have to do everything to have a good time.



(1) While these are Level 1 glamours, they are still class/job restricted. They can also be obtained for 4000 Wolf Marks each.

(2) The Ultima horns can be exchanged with Bertana in Revenants Toll for 5×Proto Ultima ExoplatingExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab). Looking at the methods of obtaining this stuff, it looks like a royal pain in the backside. So if you really want those horns, and some players do, the Moogle Treasure Trove is the least painful method!



Mounts

Antelope Doe – 50×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis
If you have the patience for it, you can get this mount for a meagre 8,400 Skybuilders’ Scrips! Yeah, I’ll be getting the mount version of the Antelope Doe for Irregular Tomestones of Genesis too.
Thank you to @ScaleCatExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) for their screenshot!
Bomb Palanquin – 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis
The Bomb Palanquin Horn can also be obtained for Gil 120,000 from the Kobold vendor once you have reached Trusted standing with the 789th Order tribe.
Legendary Kamuy – 30×Irregular Tomestone of Genesis

Boreas – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 30
This mount can also be obtained through the Akh Afah Ampitheatre (Extreme)External Link (Opens in New Window/Tab) trial.
Dhalmel – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 30
The Dhalmel mount can be obtained via the Kupo of Fortune “scratch card” from the Ishgardian restoration. At least, that’s how I got mine. Is that still a thing?
Rose Lanner – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 30


Minions

Griffin Hatchling – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 7

You can also adopt your griffin for a “mere” 400 Centurio Seals (in Ishgard). Seriously, if you want this minion, then the Moogle Tomestone event is far, far quicker!
Little Leannan – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 7

Little Leannan is a possible drop from The Grand CosmosExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab), and can be obtained in Eureka Orthos.
Yukinko The Hunt for Genesis – Snowflake – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 50

You can also acquire this Irregular Tomestone minion in Eureka Hydatos (See FFXIV CollectExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab)). The Hunt for Genesis seems much easier to my untrained eye!


Hairstyles

Modern Aesthetics – Modern Legend – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 50

This hairstyle can, per FFXIV CollectExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab), also be obtained for 1,800 Skybuilders’ Scrips through Ishgardian Restoration tasks.

I am showing it here on one of my Miqo’te and will try to get the style on a couple of other races too.

Chocobo Barding

  • Titania Barding – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 50


Decorations

All these decorations are craftable if you have the right crafting level or know someone that is. They’re also not that many Irregular Tomes of Genesis. So, whichever method you find the most fun – do that!

Back Bar – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 20

Craftable: Yes
Bar Rack – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 20

Craftable: Yes
Pixie Apple Basket – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 20

Craftable: Yes


Triple Triad Cards

Just as an FYI, if you cannot see all these Triple Triad Cards at the Itinerant Moogle, it’s probably because you need to complete some content first. See the bottom of the items listExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab). I’m not a fan of repeating verbatim what someone else has written.

  • Deepeye Card – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 10
  • Archaeornis Card – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 10
  • Stormblood Gilgamesh Card – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 7
  • Tiania Card – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 7

Orchestrion Rolls

  • Decisions (Omega) Orchestrion Roll – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 30
  • Twilight over Thanalan Orchestrion Roll – Irregular Tomestone of Genesis 30
  • Indomitable Orchestrion Roll – 7

Misc



More to Come on the Moogle Treasure Trove Hunt for Genesis!

This is essentially my pre-guide to this Moogle Tomestone Event. I will add other item previews soon. I do own some of these things already so I can help you window-shop ahead of the event starting next week.

TL;DR Something for Everyone for This Moogle Treasure Trove?

If the methods of obtaining the items are as broad as I think, most players should be able to get something! Make the most of your Mogpendium and clear some objectives.

Obtaining those Irregular Tomestones of Genesis should not be too difficult I don’t think. Pick the sort of activities you enjoy and focus on those. That way you stand a better chance of obtaining your target rewards, without feeling like it’s a grind!

I’ll see yous soon in FFXIV! (and don’t forget to check the official siteExternal Link (Opens in New Window/Tab)!)
