The Ruby Weapon Battle Challenge

Attendees will be able to challenge the Ruby Weapon and those who emerge victorious will receive an “I BEAT RUBY WEAPON” T-shirt! (The design is secret for a bit longer!)

To ensure that a greater number of adventurers have a chance to experience the challenge, attendees will be limited to earning one T-shirt reward during the event. Attendees who defeat the Ruby Weapon are welcome to challenge the battle again alongside their friends, but they will not earn an additional T-shirt.
* Available while supplies last, sizes not guaranteed.

New Player Experience Area

Have you been itching to introduce friends to FFXIV? Then our New Player Experience area is perfect for them! We’ll introduce attendees to a handful of jobs at the event and prepare them for a battle against Ifrit in the Bowl of Embers! Should the attendees defeat the Lord of the Inferno, they’ll earn themselves a FREE copy of the FINAL FANTASY XIV Online Starter Edition for PC!

Merchandise for Sale

We’ll be selling several pieces of FFXIV-related goods at the Square Enix Merchandise area, located next to our booth. Attendees will be able to purchase existing products like our adorable plushes and new items such as the Shadowbringers acrylic stands and new job pins slightly ahead of their official release.

Keep in mind that the supply is a bit limited due to the early nature of their release and that they may sell out quickly!
