Like most modern MMOs, Final Fantasy XIV features a character creation system where players can select various features for their avatar. As the game has continued, Square Enix has released additional hairstyles either through update patches directly into the character creator, or through special items used to obtain them. The Gyr Abanian Plait in FFXIV is one of the most sought after hairstyles, and there will be a way to obtain it that won’t relegate players to running Heaven-on-High for a chance to get it at random.
Originally, the Gyr Abanian Plait could only be acquired through running one of the FFXIV Deep Dungeons, Heaven-on-High. Through this dungeon you would acquire drops that could then be identified for the possibility of it turning into this hairstyle. Due to the popularity of it, and the fact that it’s a random drop, has made it fairly pricy on the in-game market board. That said, players will have an opportunity to obtain it through the Moogle Treasure Trove event in April 2023.
Participating in the event will allow you to obtain Irregular Tomestones of Mendacity. These can then be traded in for the Modern Aesthetics – Gyr Abanian Plait item at any of the applicable vendors in Ul’dah, Gridania, or Limsa Lominsa. It can be obtained for a total of 50 Irregular Tomestones of Mendancity, which will be a bit of a grind but an actual way to obtain the hairstyle without any kind of chance involved.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.
