    Delve Even Deeper with Expanded Services from the Moblin Maze Mongers! (Part I) (04/01/2009)
    Their business booming thanks to the loyal patronage of adventurers across Vana'diel, the ever profit-minded Moblins of the Moblin Maze Mongers (MMM) have a few more tricks up their sleeve! To reward their loyal customers—and hopefully entice a few new ones in the process—MMM will be unveiling a host of new services and refinements to their line of custom-order dungeons in the upcoming version update.

    * Share Your Masterpieces!
    To address customer concern that Materialization Team missions are excessively challenging compared to other MMM services, Goldagrik and the gang will unveil the following adjustments:

    - Materials obtained will be automatically and instantly stored with the NPC Stowastiq.
    - There is now a chance that materials will not be lost when synthesis fails.
    - The necessary waiting period between synthesis attempts will be shortened from 60 to 45 seconds. - Certain conditions will result in the appearance of a notorious monster which, if defeated, will yield intermediate synthesis materials. (Note: These materials, however, will not be automatically stored, and must be delivered to Stowastiq manually.)
    - When assigned your final order, you will be able to choose from a list of items.
    - Base synthesis skill level will be increased for all Materialization missions. This value may be increased even further by adding the appropriate Maze Rune.
    - Reward items will be increased to three times their previous quantity, and their contents overhauled as well.
    MMM will introduce a new Maze Tabula duplication service to provide adventurers with a simple and easy way to share their favorite mazes with one another!

    For a nominal handling fee of only twenty marbles per transaction, you will now be able to register a Maze Tabula of your choice with the designated MMM duplication NPC. Copies of the registered tabulae—sorted by theme and popularity for your browsing ease—may then be purchased by any adventurer for the low, low cost of only 500 gil. Now your masterpieces of dungeon design can be enjoyed far and wide!

    (Note: Copied tabulae can only be used as is; their runes and vouchers may not be customized further. In addition, copies may be used a maximum of five times.)

    * Monsters Tamed!
    In the upcoming version update, certain monsters appearing in areas introduced since the Wings of the Goddess expansion will have their attack strength lowered. Certain monsters appearing in MMM mazes will be affected by these changes, with the Moblin Marble rewards gained by defeating them adjusted accordingly.
