Tomestone traders in Camp Revenant's Toll.

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.

Allagan tomestones (アラガントームストーン, Aragan tōmusutōn?) are a 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 merchants in most major cities.

Types of Allagan tomestone[]

Currencies[]

Allagan tomestone currencies 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), all other tomestones require the player to have at least one class or job at the level cap, with any reward involving them adjusted to award experience or poetics at lower levels.

All tomestone currencies are capped at 2000. Furthermore, aside from the 2 to 4 week period between the launch of an expansion and the introduction of the second tomestone tier alongside the expansion's first savage raid, only 450 of the highest tier can be earned per week (for the fourth tier of an expansion, this weekly restriction is typically loosened to 900 a few months before the next expansion is released). As higher tiers of tomestones are introduced, lower tiers (excluding poetics) are deprecated, and have to be converted to either the next tier up or poetics, depending on the tier. If the player still has tomestones of a tier that are being removed, they will be rendered forfeit.

Irregular tomestones[]

Introduced in the lead up to Shadowbringers, Irregular tomestones are tokens used in Moogle Treasure Trove event, an event that runs for approximately a month before each major patch. Containing data that is considered just too strange to be worth anything to normal collectors (in addition to the fact that they are types of tomestone that are so old to be considered worthless anyway), they are instead collected by the itinerant moogles located in Ul'dah, Limsa Lominsa and Gridania, in exchange for an eclectic selection of items from older content, as well as usually containing one new exclusive item for exchanging 100 tomestones.

Shops[]

The player can purchase equipment and items with Allagan tomestones at Rowena's House of Splendors merchants (labeled "Tomestone Exchange") in Limsa Lominsa, Ul'dah, Gridania, Revenant's Toll, Ishgard, Idyllshire, Kugane, Rhalgr's Reach, the Crystarium, Eulmore, or Radz-at-Han.

Other appearances[]

Final Fantasy XV[]

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.

Description
Yjhimei trading post from FFXV

Y'jhimei's trading post.

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).

War of the Visions: Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[]

Tomestone of Goetia

Tomestone of Goetia.

An item that can be acquired in FFXIV Collaborative Events and exchanged for various items at the Tomestone of Goetia Exchange Shop.

Behind the scenes[]

FFXIV Tomestone emote

The Tomestone emote.

The tomestone emote was introduced in patch 4.4 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.

Scrips are another type of currency with a similar role and limitations to Allagan tomestones, though these are focused on the crafter and gatherer disciplines.

Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers has a scene where the Warrior of Light sees some tomestones in the Crystarium and feels disappointed, an allusion to the tiring duty of constantly farming tomestones at the endgame. Likewise, during the epilogue of the Gunbreaker job quest, Sophie notes how Radovan only rarely joins tomestone hunts, not wanting to turn them into "a daily grind".

In the Myths of the Realm raid storyline in Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, the Twelve use divine magic to create information receptacles for the Warrior of Light and their allies, which record information about the gods as the party visits their places of worship across Eorzea. These receptacles take the form of whatever the owner envisions as an item for recording information: whereas most of the Warrior's allies receive items such as grimoires, the Warrior's receptacle instead takes the form of an Allagan tomestone.
