The Breaking Brick Mountains is an event on Final Fantasy XIV that started January 21st, 2014 at 2:00 a.m. and lasted until February 3rd, 2014 at 6:59 a.m. (PST). The repeat of the event lasted between September 14th and September 23rd, 2014.
Typically forged of stone and clay, the magical monstrosities known as golems once served myriad masters at the height of the Fifth Astral Era. Though the craft of their creation is thought to be forgotten, it is not uncommon to glimpse these terrifying titans near ruins of the ancient city of Belah'dia.
However, prodigious prospects of newfound golems both puissant and pernicious have Amajina & Sons in a pickle, and diligent miners dumbfounded with disbelief. In fact, I daresay this may be the second coming of the Mad Mythril Rush─for if the stories are true, these terrestrial titans are composed of choice minerals heretofore unseen in Eorzea.
Burgeoning businesses are abuzz with anticipation, and justifiably so. Though their quality and constitution have yet to be confirmed, the possible applications for this remarkable new resource are limitless. Lovely links to make beautiful bangles? Or perhaps perduring plating for a peerless piece of armor? The mining community is ever eager to discover the truth of these gargantuan gold mines.
While Amajina & Sons is the forerunning faction in such matters, competing interests have also popped up in pursuit of these coveted creatures. Even adventurers have been seen scouring the caverns and chasms of Eorzea in hopes of reaping the riches. Though these prospects show promising potential, we must first prove the golems to be real, lest businesses flounder in the face of fanciful fabrications.- Havak Alvak
The appearance of golems of unknown geological composition spurred Amaljina & Sons Mineral Concern into hiring the player to assess the potential for profit, hence the player being tasked with obtaining a chunk of brickman.
Upon bringing the specified item to the beefy businessman a bunch of associate ladies offer the player some puff-puff in a suggestive manner. However, it turns out to be being smothered by small furry creatures.
The player is tasked to participate in the FATE Brick by Brick followed by the FATE Brick by Stone Brick or Brick by Gold Brick in order to obtain a chunk of brickman.
In the event's repeat the player is also able to obtain a King Slime Crown by purchasing it from the toughie in Ul'dah, Steps of Nald.
It is worth noting that the a special message appears when accepting and completing the quest: Quest Accepted and Quest Completed respectively, both featuring the use of the well-known Dragon Quest font.
