Right before Shadowbringers launched, FFXIV introduced the first Mogtome event (that’s not the official event name, just what I like to call it). Rewards included several mounts, such as the Pegasus, some easy to get ponies and some easy to get birds. I farmed Syrcus Tower super hard to get my Pegasus on two characters, and I still don’t regret it.
Fast forward to today when the second Mogtome event was announced. I had a feeling that we’d see it return, and am pretty darn stoked to see what they’re doing this time around.
Last time, running ST for 2 tomes was the most economical way to get things done. This time, MSQ Roulette is going to be your friend. Praetorium drops 10 tomes and Castrum drops 7! For the time spent, really, these are your best bets, even with the long cutscenes you have to deal with.
Considering there’s the Sophia and Thordan birds up for grabs for 50 tomes each, I’m totally on board. I also plan on snagging some ponies for my main since those are only 30 tomes each – not having to farm Titan and Ramuh works for me. It’s interesting that they also included the Falcon mount – if you didn’t get that before, snag it this time around.
I might get a few of the orchestrion rolls as well. Just depends on how I feel once I get there. I wanted to run stuff to level my Dancer on my main anyhow, so MSQ is as good as any roulette.
Looks like this event is going to launch next week and likely run until about the time patch 5.1 drops.
