Faux Hollows Overview

Once per week, players may speak to the Faux Commander after completing an unreal trial to gain access to Faux Hollows.

  • Availability is reset every Tuesday at 1:00 a.m. (PDT) (Earth time), and can be confirmed via the Raid Finder entry for any unreal trial.

Playing Faux Hollows

The object of Faux Hollows is to reveal the illustrations hidden beneath one or more panels. Only eleven panels can be turned in total when playing. Successfully uncover illustrations and earn faux leaves, which can be exchanged for various rewards. The amount of faux leaves awarded differs depending on the size and nature of the illustration uncovered.


Uncovering a large illustration grants a retelling. With this reward, it is possible to complete an unreal trial and access Faux Hollows once more before a week has passed, making it a viable alternative to solely aiming for illustrations that grant a high number of faux leaves.

  • Players may only earn one retelling per week.
