Whether it's frantically scrambling around to hunt down eggs that have been hidden, boiling up an egg-stremely delicious dinner, or collecting the various jeweled eggs that can be found in Vana’diel to put on display in your Mog House, there are a myriad of possibilities for using this magical object. This year we will be adopting the age-old tradition of egg decoration to celebrate and welcome the season of spring in Vana'diel.

Using an egg as your canvas, put your artistic skills to the test and create a FINAL FANTASY XI themed artwork. The rare and coveted Chocobo Beret will be awarded to a basketful of egg-ceptional eggs!

Wednesday, March 15, 2013 4:00 a.m. to Monday, April 1, 2013 1:01 a.m. (PDT)

How to empty an egg:

  2. With a drill or other tool, poke a hole in the top portion where tape has been placed for both ends, and drain out the liquid.
  3. By blowing air through one of the holes, the rest of the liquid will come out of the other end.
  4. Make sure to have a plate available as the liquid might come out quickly.
  5. Rinse out the egg with water and let it dry.
  6. Start to decorate your egg!
