The leaves start turning and it is time for the fall harvest to begin. The Fall Harvest event allows players to participate in the HELM (harvesting, excavation, logging, and mining) activities to find rare items, spawn fun encounters, and use synergy to craft unique items.
This event runs from 16 October to start of maintenance on 6 November 2022.
Players can participate at any level with basic harvesting tasks. Equipping the leafkin grenade will cause Protectors to spawn, which are level 99. The event BCNM is locked to level 50.
To get started, players will need to flag their character as participating in the Harvest. You’ll need to trade a sickle to an Event Moogle to flag your character as participating in the Fall Harvest event. Sickles can be found at many nation shops, crafted, or purchased on the auction house.
What can I do?
Get out there and harvest
Harvesting provides players with a chance at getting the Fall Harvest currency, leafkin grenades, to drop on each harvest. The Fall Harvest event is only active in certain zones. Equipping a leafkin grenade in your ammo slot while harvesting can draw out rare NM.
If you use Ashitacast or Gearswap, don’t forget to lock your ammo slot in so it doesn’t unequip your grenades!
The Harvest Protectors will try to stop you from making off with the rare harvests.
Defeating the Harvest Protectors has a slight chance at a rare drop and gains you harvest points. But be careful, ignoring a Protector could have dire consequences!
The type of rare items that the Protector can drop varies based on harvest node type: mining, harvesting, and logging all have unique item pools!
|Harvesting||West Sarutabaruta [S]|
|Harvesting||Abyssea - Grauberg|
|Logging||Jugner Forest [S]|
|Logging||Fort Karugo-Narugo [S]|
Some zones have a higher chance of dropping leafkin grenades while others have a higher chance for Harvest Protectors and rare materials–usually ones that are harder to get around.
What do Harvest Points and Leafkin Grenades do?
Harvest Points are gained each time a Harvest Protector is defeated; usually one per defeated protector, however, _ very rarely_ will a protector reward 2-3 points.
Leafkin Grenades are gained from harvesting nodes and, randomly, from defeating Harvest Protectors. These are traded to Event Moogles to purchase various leaves from the Event Moogle shop.
Harvest Points provide numerous bonuses to player harvesting and crafting activities as well as unlock various reward tiers with the Event Moogles.
HELM activities will drop additional items.
- 10+ points : gain one (1) additional item per harvest.
- 30+ points : gain one to two (1-2) additional item(s) per harvest.
- 50+ points : gain one to three (1-3) additional item(s) per harvest.
A passive effect is active that improves crafting. These buffs are cumulative as the player gains points.
- 50+ points : gain Synthesis Success +5%

- 125+ points : gain All Synthesis Skills +5.
- 200+ points : gain Synthesis HQ Rate +5 (this is not %, but +5/512 chance added to the HQ rate).
Additional reward shops open up when engaging with the Event Moogle.
- 50+ points : gain ability to purchase leaves used in synthesis recipes. These leaves cost Leafkin Grenades that have been traded to and stored with the Event Moogle.

Participate in the BCNM
Players can participate in the Harvest Mayhem BCNM for a chance at rare crafting items, gear, rare augments, and items.
To enter, trade a Platinum Leaf to the burning circle at Balga’s Dias to enter the battlefield.
