The Expert Duty Roulette is one of the fastest methods, as you’ll get the roulette rewards plus another 50 Allagan Tomestones of Comedy for completing the associated Dungeon. This latter reward is also given for any clear of these dungeons, so you can run them again and again outside the Duty Roulette. Note, there is a weekly cap, meaning you can only gain up to 450 Allagan Tomestones of Comedy per week, with reset occurring every Tuesday.
Allagan Tomestones of Comedy are also earned from other content in FFXIV.
Like the Duty Roulette, you must be on a level 90 job to gain Comedy Tomestones from these activities. Although these are methods of gaining a few more Comedy Tomestones, completing your Duty Roulettes and polishing off high-end dungeons is still the fastest way to acquire them.
PvP is a quick way to farm Comedy Tomestones fast
Player versus player content isn't for everyone, but if you're looking to gain Comedy Tomestones and you're out of your daily Duty Roulettes, Crystalline Conflict is one of the fastest ways to farm Comedy Tomestones. A Ranked or Casual match takes anywhere from five to 10 minutes, and awards 10 Comedy Tomestones upon completion. The queues are usually pretty fast, too.
Even if you lose, you get 10 tomestones per 10 minutes (assuming each match goes longer than the average). For the sake of this article, we tested how long it would take from queue to finish for a single Crystalline Conflict match. Queuing took about two minutes, and the match itself took eight minutes with a little bit of overtime. On average, players can expect to earn about 60 tomestones per hour if they grind CC matches.
Where to find the tomestone vendor for new gear
You’ll be exchanging those hard-earned Tomestones of Comedy to Cihanti in Radz-at-Han (X: 10.8, Y: 10.3). She sells all the necessary gear for all Jobs, all of which are at a sweet Item Level 650. She’s the same NPC offering the old Lunar Envoy gear for Tomestones of Causality. The prices for the new gear is as follows:
- Head: 495 tomestones
- Body: 825 tomestones
- Hands: 495 tomestones
- Legs: 825 tomestones
- Feet: 495 tomestones
