Egg-ceptional adventurers of Eorzea, the season has come to heed the egg’s call as the annual Hatching-tide event has scrambled its way into the realm! Dozens of eggs lay in wait to be hunted, so get out there, be egg-rresive, and hunt 'em down! While you're out and about on your egg-citing egg-ventures, be sure to stop and snap some screenshots, because it’s as sure as eggs is eggs that we have prizes to give to the best of the basket. Show us a screenshot of how you are celebrating the Hatching-tide event and we’ll be selecting 100 qualifying winners and awarding them with the egg-quisite Mandragora Choker!
And remember, you can’t take a screenshot without breaking some eggs…or something like that. Good luck!
