Many players are wondering what happens when you 'buy a round for the hall' at the Tub and Crown in Final Fantasy 16, as the expensive option holds a potentially elusive reward alongside a route to the Eureka trophy - one of FF16's many achievements.

There are so many things that you can spend your hard-earned Gil on in Final Fantasy 16, from new swords to potions, and so much more, so the prospect of dumping a whopping 10,000 Gil on a few drinks immediately raises suspicions about its outcome in the game.

Thankfully we've got all of the answers you're looking for below, so make sure to carry on reading to find out what happens when you 'buy a round for the hall' in Final Fantasy 16, in addition to some tips for getting the Eureka trophy.

SPOILER WARNING: This guide may contain story spoilers, so be sure to proceed at your own risk to ensure details in the game remain a surprise.

Unfortunately, nothing happens when you 'buy a round for the hall' - outside of everyone in the hall getting a nice refreshing drink, of course. While we're sure we weren't alone in thinking that the steep 10,000 Gil price tag would give something a little more substantial, at least you can rest assured that you've probably made someone happy.

If you consider that the price of a single drink from Maeve is 500 gil, the 10,000 gil cost for the whole hall implies that there are only 20 people to be found within the central hub of Hideaway. Looks like you've got a few more bearers to save.

However, the 'buy a round for the hall' option is in fact the easiest way to get the Eureka trophy in Final Fantasy 16, as you will need to spend 36,000 Gil at Maeve's establishment the Tub and Crown.

Thankfully this sum includes drinks that you buy for other people, so you will only need to select the option four times in order to get the trophy. This is, of course, a lot of money to spend on functionally nothing, so the best way to go about this is to create a save, and then reload it once you have spent the Gil.

If you're lacking for Gil in the first place, however, the quickest way to pick some up is by doing Hunts from the Hunt Board, as the bounties can typically be in the tens of thousands - letting you quickly get up to the required amount.

So, that should answer all of your questions if you were wondering what happens when you 'buy a round of the hall' in Final Fantasy 16, alongside showing you how to get the Eureka trophy in the game.
