From Monday, 12 December 2022 at 8:00 (GMT) / 19:00 (AET) until the launch of Patch 6.3

This time around there are a number of unusual items, including a mount available.

For more in depth info go watch Zepla’s video on what to get and what to ignore reward wise. Here is the link to her YT video:Zepla discusses Rewards for Moogle Tomestone Event

Personally I'm going after the rocket that otherwise is not available in the game any longer first.

Mount: Starlight Steed

Item: Illuminated Tree (Outdoor housing item)

Likely there will also be a Online Shop SALE


Likely release date for 6.3 should be Jan.10th, 10th since the Moogle event usually runs about a month. 

FTC sues to block Microsoft's acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

The outcome of that will be interesting, this is the third government entity that looks into the acquisition, first the UK and EU governments started investigations into it, but I haven't seen any substantial results yet.

Diablo IV launch date 6/6/23.

Collectors Edition, costing about $100 doesn’t include a copy of the game.

What We've Been Doing:


 Hours of Gameplay streamed for Mechwarrior 5 : Mercenaries.  I’ve sold 4 light mechs, repeated a hard mission 15 times to upgrade my light armored mechs to Heavy mechs. I had just gotten a new pilot called Hawthorne, she had a real nice voice and after about 10 hours of trying a hard mission I succeeded and found out she had died at the very end. I sold her mech for next to nothing but the payout for salvage was near 21 million C-Bills, I just could not justify that pilot’s life against the huge upgrades of 3 light mechs to 3 heavy mechs.  35, 45, and 40 tons upgraded to 70, 70 and 75 tons, could not pass up the opportunity, the payout was too good for my emotional attachment to a woman’s voice in the game.

  I’ve uploaded a screen shot of someone’s drop ship, when you look in the garage, you can see the mechs with a fresh paint job sitting there and the ones that are damaged while they are being repaired.

  Darkmoon Faire, bought 6 pets from darkmoon, 2 zeppelins, 2 monkeys, 1 tonk, 1 turtle.   Have done a Leatherworking quest to up Legion Leatherworking to 85.   It’s the last pre-expansion profession I don’t currently have at maximum.

  Bought Epic version of Diablo IV. for the transmog and emote. 145$ CDN

  Got Horde of Hoofplates on my paladins after buying all 8 racial mounts for drackthyr.



Darkmoon Faire on several toons

Mi dinged 57, it’s better with bacon

Tiiaa dinged 43


Beastmaster Vrisna is amazing



Gym Class, shooting basketball.

Lots of Supernatural, the stretching is sooooo good.

Population: One

Sucking at Legions small Lobbies

Missle launcher, does 58 damage on anyone in it’s path. Noisy

NDA on Sandbox drops tomorrow, I have some interesting video

Double skin for 2100 Bureau coins,

Grand Nagus 

Working on the AST job now, currently at level 55.

Working on getting one more job to 80, Summoner, currently at 78, so i can do the Endwalker Tribal Quests on that job too and not having to waste the EXP doing the quests on a level 90 job, yes i get Allagan Tomestone of Causality as compensation, but i’d rather level my jobs at the moment.

Finished the first stage of the Heavensward SMN Artifact weapon, the Animated Almandal.

It doesn’t go into the glamor dresser, so you have to carry it in a bag so some kind to have access to its appearance and pay a glamour crystal each time you use its appearance.


Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at Final Fantasy XIV!
