Where are the Hatching-tide hidden egg locations in Final Fantasy XIV? Easter has descended on Square Enix’s famously resurgent MMO and we’re all celebrating by solving some devious egg-based puzzles. At least you can get your brain working before you inflict a chocolate-induced coma on yourself. As ever, we’re here to help so you can unlock the plush new Spriggan armour set.

This is a seasonal event, so you only have a limited amount of time to complete the new set of quests: Eggstreme Eggstrapolation, A Shelltered Eggsistence, and Deus Eggs Machina. However, you need to be at least level 15 to tackle them, and you only have until April 22 at 2:59pm GMT (9:59am ET / 6:59 PT) until they’re gone for good. And that’s no yoke. Honestly, if you didn’t appreciate that pun, perhaps this set of objectives isn’t for you – Hatching-tide is full of them.

Jihli Aliapoh is in trouble, and you’re just the hero with the penchant for scavenging she needs. She needs your help with finding a series of FFXIV Hatching-tide hidden eggs snaffled away by the mischievous Nonotta and Riggy. You can find your troubled quest-giver in Old Gridania: her coordinates are X:10.2, Y:9.4. So, now that you’re ready, here are the Final Fantasy XIV Hatching-tide hidden egg locations.

Nonotta and Riggy’s puzzle is a toughie, so it’s understandable if you feel a bit stumped when she hands you a rather confounding set of maps. The scattered mix of letters all over the map doesn’t reveal all that much to get you started, until you speak to some spriggans. They’re near to Nonotta and you’ll find them marked on your minimap before hunting for each egg. Each spriggan gives you a clue that corresponds to the map, but these are the only hints Nonotta is willing to give.

Once you know where to find each FFXIV hidden egg for Hatching-tide you need to use your in-game chat to type ‘Egg Hunt’ near the correct spot with chat mode set to ‘Say’. You’ll know you’ve got it right as a cutscene will play. But, if you need a bit more help, below are both the places in which you need to complete this action in chronological order:

  • Hidden egg 1: Miounne at the Adventurer’s Guild (11,13)
  • Hidden egg 2: Gabineaux in Central Shroud (27,21)

Once you’ve said the password to Gabineaux you’ll have completed the Deus Eggs Machina quest and successfully discovered all the FFXIV Hatching-tide puzzle solutions. That, of course gives you the full Spriggan armour set. Oh and, if you’re a clumsy soul and you’ve lost the jacket somewhere while completing the quests, you can buy it back at the event shop.
