The Moon Sets on the Faire, the Sun Rises for the Rising

Greetings everyone!

Zhexos from the Community team here.

Hope you all are enjoying this year's Moonfire Faire, which features a cool polar bear mount, some frosty Costa del Hielo, and other goodies. The Moonfire Faire ends on Thursday, August 26 at 7:59 a.m. (PDT) so if you haven't already taken part in this year's summer event, make sure to check it out before it ends!

If you're trying to overcome the heat of summer in real life, be sure to stay cool and keep yourself hydrated! It gets so hot here that sometimes I feel like I'm experiencing another Calamity.

Speaking of the Calamity, this year's Rising event marks our eighth anniversary of the launch of A Realm Reborn! As a famous character once said (?) "Such celebration... This was my intention!" Let's dive into it!


Event Period
Friday, August 27 at 12:00 a.m. to Thursday, September 9 at 7:59 a.m. (PDT)

How to Participate
Speak with Kipih Jakkya at Ul'dah - Steps of Nald (X:10.0, Y:8.7) to begin.


Quest: Rising Calm
Kipih Jakkya is looking around in consternation.

Event Items
Red Moon Parasol


An Eastern-style umbrella adorned with a very familiar icon! This one is simply awesome, and I'd gladly use it in the rain (if it ever rains here in California...).

Nymeia Potpourri


Here we have a new fireworks item! The static image doesn't do these amazing firework effects justice, but trust me, the visuals are delightful! I'll probably end up purchasing at least 2-3 stacks of them to use in the future. I still have all the stacks of Realm Reborn Red from seven years ago. Maybe they taste better aged? How much of the drink is left after you pop the top so vigorously anyway? I'll have to test it out IRL one of these days.

Thank you all for supporting FINAL FANTASY XIV for all these years and hopefully many more to come.

I'll see you all in-game to celebrate the anniversary!
