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 annually from 10 September to 15 November.
Currently, Phase I of this event is released. This includes the HELM activities, leafkin grenade collection and turn-in, and some synergy crafts. Other activities, including the BCNM, buffs for grenade collection, and additional harvesting zones, and additional synergy recipes will be coming in the 1 October update.
It’s recommended that players be at least level 5-10 to begin participating with the HELM events. The event BCNM will level sync to level 30, so players should be at least 30 to participate.
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.
Located at the Celennia Memorial Library (
!relax), players can try their luck at the Harvest Game with Rosulatia.
Trade her an item–any item–and see what you get back. It may be something amazing, it may be trash! What you get will be based on how generous you and other players have been in the items you’ve traded her.
Players can participate in the Harvest Game every 2 hours.
If you’re EXTREMELY LUCKY, you could end up with a rare, lucky harvest and receive an additional prize!
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.
These rare leafkins have a chance to drop additional grenades and rare items depending on the harvest activity you were participating in–mining, harvesting, and logging all have unique rare items, such as rare augment items, elemental “tears”, and rare crafting materials.
The “suggested level” of each is based on the level of the mobs in the zone and the level range of surprise NM encounters while harvesting.
|90+||Logging||Fort Karugo-Narugo [S]|
|99+||Harvesting||Abyssea - Grauberg|
The chance that you’ll receive a rare reward after defeating the leafkin varies by zone–higher level zones have a higher chance of dropping rare items.
The leafkin grenades can be turned into the Event Moogle. These can then be used to activate passive buffs on the player as well as used for currency to purchase rare items and crafting materials.
Don’t forget to keep one leafkin grenade equipped in your ammo slot so you have a chance at spawning the NMs when you harvest.
Players can see their total leafkin grenades totals by speaking to the Event Moogle. The Event Moogle will report both the obtained (total) turned in and the spendable total.
Players can spend their leafkin grenades on numerous buffs and rare crafting materials. These can be acquired by trading a required item to the Event Moogle and having the sufficient number of spendable leafkin grenades.
Buffs can only be applied to a character once.
|Earth crystal||20||Buff: 2x mining harvests|
|Wind crystal||20||Buff: 2x harvesting harvests|
|Fire crystal||20||Buff: 2x logging harvests|
|Lightning crystal||30||Silver leaf|
|Ice crystal||40||Mythril leaf|
|Water crystal||50||Gold leaf|
|Ice cluster||75||Platinum leaf|
|Light cluster||250||Azure leaf|
|Lightning cluster||500||Large leaf|
Using the items purchased from the Event Moogle, players can create several unique items, including a custom chair! Recipes that require leafkin grenades must be traded to the synergy furnace as a normal recipe component and cannot be pulled from your spendable total.
Players can participate in the daily BCNM to gain additional prizes, leafkin grenade currency, and rare augments and items.
Coming in Phase II in October!
In addition to the purchasable HELM buffs, players gain bonuses for the duration of the Fall Harvest event based on the cumulative total of obtained leafkin grenades.
