They're relics from the Allagan Empire, a civilization what thrived durin' the Third Astral Era. That's around five thousand years ago, in case you're wonderin'. Despite their tiny size, each one's said to contain a library's worth o' knowledge o' the past. They've gained some amount of popularity among the rich eccentrics o' the realm, who buy the tomestones from me by the bagful. An' for my part, I source them from adventurers like yourself. The Allagan Empire once spanned all Eorzea, so there's no shortage o' places where tomestones might be found. Bring me whatever you come upon durin' your escapades, an' I'll strike you a deal.
The Allagan Tomestones are a kind of special currency and item in Final Fantasy XIV. They are solid-state data archives used by the Allagan Empire, a civilization that thrived during the Third Astral Era, and as such are considered very valuable. The player can exchange tomestones they obtain for high level equipment by talking to Rowena's merchants in Revenant's Toll, Idyllshire, and Rhalgr's Reach.
Types of Allagan TomestoneEdit
Allagan Tomestone currencies are capped at 2000 each. They are awarded for completing various high level activities. Allagan Tomestones of Poetics are available to the player at any level (assuming they are capable of unlocking and clearing the content that awards them), however tomestones designed for classes at the level cap can only be obtained if the player has at least one class or job at said cap, with any reward involving them adjusted to award experience or Poetics at lower levels. As higher tiers of tomestones are introduced, lower tiers (excluding Poetics) are deprecated, and have to be converted to the next tier up at some point before they are removed entirely. If the player still has tomestones of a tier that are being removed, they will be rendered forfeit.

A recording medium used in the ancient Allagan Empire of another world. Adventurers risk life and limb to collect these stones as a type of currency.
Allagan Tomestones are key items acquired in Adventurer from Another World collaboration quest with Final Fantasy XIV. They can be used at Y'jhimei's trading post after defeating the quest's boss to trade for new ultimate weapons for Final Fantasy XV.
The player can find three batches of 30 tomestones for a total of 90 per playthrough of the quest. The tomestones can also be obtained from the boss, Garuda, however, it only yields them one at a time, making collecting them from the keep the superior method. If the player wants all the weapons available at the trading post, they can amass more tomestones via Chapter Select to reset the quest progress while keeping their items (however, this basically acts as a New Game Plus).
- The Scrips are another type of currency in Final Fantasy XIV, with a very similar role and limitations to the Allagan Tomestones, though these are actually focused on the crafter and gatherer disciplines.
- In patch 4.4 it was introduced the Tomestone emote, in which the player character shows a Poetics Tomestone and uses it as a mobile device. This emote can be obtained by registering the Final Fantasy XIV Companion app.
- In Shadowbringers there is a scene in which the Warrior of Light sees some Tomestone mobile devices and feels dissapointed, an allusion to the tiring duty of constantly farming Tomestones at the endgame.
