Rising and Shining

Greetings and salutations, everyone!

Okieeomi from the Community team here bringing you the latest on seasonal events in Eorzea. I hope you're making the most out of the summer this year!

Speaking of which, you have until Friday, August 26 at 7:59 a.m. (PDT) to participate in the Moonfire Faire festivities to obtain the Summer Sunset attire and purchase the Summer Bonfire. We've already seen a lot of creative use of both rewards so be sure to pick them up before the event's conclusion.

As per tradition, the Rising event will begin the day after! /cheer

I can hardly believe it has been nine years since the realm was reborn! We welcome all new and veteran Warriors of Light to come enjoy this year's event!


Event Period
From Saturday, August 27, 2022 at 12:00 a.m.
to Monday, September 12, 2022 at 7:59 a.m. (PDT)

How to Participate
Speak with the wandering minstrel located in Ul'dah - Steps of Nald (X:10.1 Y:8.4) to accept the quest. Interesting to see he's the one offering the quest this time around!


Quest: Newfound Journey
The wandering minstrel has a request for an experienced adventurer.

▼ Clockwork Solus


This time we have the founding father of the Garlean Empire himself! The facial expression has been perfectly recreated in this miniature clockwork version so that you quite literally remember that he once lived. *wink* *wink*

And since this is a minion...


You can try and recreate some of your favorite iconic scenes!



So set aside your favorite glamour and go on a group pose spree with your very own Clockwork Solus! And let's not forget the highly anticipated Island Sanctuary content is right around the corner and prime for releasing your favorite minions to take beautiful screenshots with! Not that I would be guilty of that or anything...

With the Rising right around the corner be sure to set aside some time to enjoy the celebration!
