Where to Get Megamaguey Pineapple in FFXIV

Fortunately, there are a few different ways to get the Megamaguey Pineapple and it all comes down to your personal preference. Here are the main ways you can get this food material:

  • Trade for FATE Gemstones in Urqopacha, Tuliyollal, and Solution Nine (Costs 3 Gemstones each)
  • Defeat Megamaguey
  • Retainer Hunting Ventures (Level 91, specifically)
  • Market Board

If you want to gather these pineapples the natural way, I recommend heading to find some Megamaguey in Urqopacha. They are usually right around X: 18.2, Y: 12.6. They don’t guarantee a pineapple drop each time you defeat one so you may have to take out a few. If you want the fastest and easiest way of getting these pineapples, I suggest hitting up the Market Board where others are selling them.

  • Cooking Mezcal (makes three at once): 5 Megamaguey Pineapples, 8 Fire Crystals

This Cooking Mezcal is not itself a meal. It is also a food material item, much like the pineapple. The purpose of the Mezcal is for use in about seven different major cooking recipes for Culinarian.
