— In-game description

Gold saucer icon2.png

The Gold Saucer, also known as The Manderville Gold Saucer, is the arcade mode of Final Fantasy XIV. It was first released in patch 2.51. The Gold Saucer is a game center with various mini-games such as Triple Triad and Chocobo Racing. Players will be able to earn tokens called Manderville Gold Saucer Points MGP (MGP) by participating in Gold Saucer activities. These tokens cannot be traded or sold, but they can be exchanged for Gold Saucer specific rewards. The Gold Saucer was originally from Final Fantasy VII.

Note: Airship travel to The Gold Saucer is free from any destination. In order for the player not to be trapped, return travel to Ul'dah is also free. This allows for a cost-saving shortcut to Ul'dah by round-tripping the Saucer.

Unlock

To unlock Gold Saucer, the player must complete the quest Feature QuestIt Could Happen to You which can be started by talking to the Well-heeled Youth in Ul'dah - Steps of Nald (x9.6,y9).
