  • Rewards/Exchanges Faux Hollows

Many daily and weekly activities await you in Final Fantasy 14, all of which have their own unique incentives to invest your time and effort in them. The Faux Hollows, for example, is a weekly activity that players can participate in to earn exclusive mounts, minions, and even unique glam.

Along with having exclusive mounts and minions, participating in Faux Hollows is a great way to earn the new Troll mount introduced in Endwalker patch 6.1. While there’s no meaningful payment in terms of experience like completing your Wondrous Tails journal, the rewards are still worthwhile and worthy of your time.

Since Faux Hollows is an endgame event, there are a few prerequisites you need to consider before accessing it. First, you will need to be at least Level 80 with anyone Disciple of war or magic and have the MSQ”Shadowbringers“done.

How to Play False Bottoms

Each week after completing the current unreal trial, you can talk with the fake commander in Idyllshire (X: 5.7, Y: 6.1) to try your luck at False Hollow Board. The Faux Hollows board consists of 36 tiles may contain illustrations hidden below them. Your goal is to flip eleven tiles in an attempt to recreate one of the three images shown to the right side of the board.

The catch is not that you only have eleven chances to recreate an image, but that some of them may not even be present on the board to begin with. Three possible illustrations can be on the board at any time, and we’ll explain all three below!

Artwork type Spawn chance Reward
small illustration Very rare
Mean Illustration One of the two medium illustrations will always be on the board.
  • x20 fake leaves
  • x10 fake leaves

(According to the illustration on the table)

Great artwork The large illustration will still be on the board.

To tell about

Although the large illustration offers the fewest faux leaves of the lot, it will still reward you with a “narrative”. This allows you to tackle the current Unreal Trial again and try your hand at the Faux Hollow Board one more time before the weekly reset. Aiming for the large artwork is recommended as you can use your extra tile flips to potentially uncover a medium or small artwork and pocket more fake leaves.

Each artwork will reward you with fake leaves, which act as a kind of currency that you can exchange with the fake commander for goodies like mounts and minions. However, keep in mind that the rarest and most wanted items will cost a good bit of fake leaves, making it essential to continue this event every week.
