Seeking Out Opponents

Find certain NPCs or other players. Defeat them and get the cards. Certain NPCs are willing to play a game of Triple Triad with you. Begin with battling some of the easier NPCs to obtain more cards (you can get a rough estimate of the difficulty by looking at the amount of MGP price and prize) .

You can also challenge other players for Triple Triad matches. To issue a challenge, target your desired opponent and select Challenge to Normal Match from the sub-command menu. A challenge can only be issued in below areas designated for Triple Triad matches.

Sell any duplicate cards to the Triple Triad Trader and buy some booster packs. Buy the Gold Saucer cards you need as soon as possible, not the expensive ones, but all of them under or around 20k.

All cards can be classified by rarity (one to five stars). When you reach 30 total cards, you will remove the limitation on the number of 2-star cards you can have in your deck. Getting to 60 cards will uncap 3-star cards.

Basic Rules of FFXIV Triple Triad

1.Two players take turns placing cards on a three-by-three grid. The player who goes first is determined randomly.

2.When it is your turn, you need to put a card on open space on the grid.

3.When a card is placed, the numbers representing its 4 sides are compared to any adjacent cards. If a number on the card placed is higher than the number it faces on an adjacent card, you will flip that card and capture it.

4.Try to capture and control more cards than your opponent. More cards you control, the more likely you will win. After nine cards have been played, the player who controls more cards is the winner. And the unplayed 10th card is counted too.
