FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Viva La Valentione

From the Dev Blog.

Greetings wanderers,

Love is in the air and Valentione's day is about to begin! This is my favorite seasonal event...maybe I just really love, love. There is something special about celebrating all those that are closest to you and we make sure there's no shortage of that in Eorzea!

20200124_sk_01.jpg


Seasonal Event Schedule  
Voting Period: From Wednesday, January 29 at 12:00 a.m. to Sunday, February 9, at 6:59 a.m. (PST)
Results: From Sunday, February 9 at 7:00 a.m. to Monday, February 17 at 6:59 a.m. (PST)

We're shaking things up with this event. This time, all adventurers will see two phases of Valentione's, the voting phase and the result phase, which will vary depending on each of World. Your votes are important, so don't forget to go out and cast your vote! Somehow that rhetoric sounds familiar but I can't quite put my finger on it...hmm...

How to Participate
You may begin your love locked quest from Lisette by the Mih Khetto's Amphitheatre (X:10.2 Y:9.4)

Quest Reward
Check out these oh so endearing five-piece outfits, representing each of our darling protégés!

20200124_sk_03.jpg

The contrast between each color and the black is really striking, don't you think?
This time, depending on who you voted for, the name of the item reward and the color will vary.

How could we forget, the most important PSA: no matter your choice, each outfit is dyeable! Be sure to check out the special Valentione website for more details!

Feel free to stay true to your protégé's color or dye it your favorite color! (Personally, I'm a Pastel Pink enthusiast). My favorite part of seasonal event outfits is mix-matching pieces with other gear to come up with unique glamours. We're definitely looking forward to seeing your glamourous screenshots on the forums and social media.

If you'd like to purchase the opposite gender outfit, you'll able to purchase them from the seasonal vendor so be sure to get them while you can!

Additional Activities and Rewards
Once you've completed the seasonal quest, you can put the strength of you and your loved one's bond to the test in the Valentione's Ceremony! Upon completion, you'll be rewarded with chocolates that can be traded for an array of delectable items!♪

20200124_sk_04.jpg

Craftily maneuver yourself through this maze with your loved one and see how high you can score! I know the surroundings of fauna and flora are beautiful, but don't let it distract you for too long! If you and your partner start to wander astray too far, your rating will start to trickle down. Remember, teamwork makes the dream work.

You can complete the ceremony as many times to your heart's content to receive more chocolates in exchange for said delectable items. Check out this grand chocolate fountain, you can dye the chocolate to the flavor you desire! White chocolate, matcha, strawberry, the possibilities are endless!

20200124_sk_05.jpg

As part of the delicious dessert set, it also features an assortment of fruits and sweets! Can't decide which one I'd like to start from, but chocolate dipped strawberries are certainly a classic. (drool)

20200124_sk_06.jpg

I'm sure this chocolate fountain will bring a big smile to you and your friends, so enjoy decorating your house with it and satiate that sweet tooth of yours!♪

20200124_sk_07.jpg

And with that, we hope you enjoy this year's festivities. I just wanted you all to know, I'm kupo nuts for you. Happy Valentione's Day!

FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Rats Off To Heavensturn

From the Dev Blog.

Greetings and salutations, adventurers! How are you enjoying this year's Starlight Celebration? I hope you and your chocobo are keeping cozy in its new Saintly Barding as the year winds down. Be sure to enjoy the Starlight festivities until the end of the year!

But as we all know, the end of the Starlight Celebration also means the start of a new year, and that also means.... Heavensturn begins!

20191227_ye_1.png

Event Period
December 31, 2019 at 7:00 a.m. through January 14, 2020 at 6:59 a.m. (PST)

How to Participate
To begin you can speak with the Nezumi Bugyo at Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (X:11.5 Y:13.9) to accept the quest.

20191227_ye_2.png

Quest Details
Heavensturn marks the beginning of a new twelve moons to come. In Eorzea, we celebrate a sacred festival where one among the Twelve wins celestial favor. Coincidently, the far east also has a similar celebration where one beast is selected and honored by forging a helm in its likeness.

The Nezumi Bugyo and his mouse companions attempt to popularize the festive food, advent cakes. However, it seems that mice are disliked by the people of Eorzea...

Gather information from the people of Limsa Lominsa to succeed in spreading advent cakes.

Speaking of rats in Limsa Lominsa, a certain beast tribe comes to mind!

20191227_ye_3.png

New FATE
A new FATE related to the Nezumi Bugyo's advent cakes will be available!

20191227_ye_4.png

Event Rewards

Head Armor: Crimson Nezumi Kabuto / Cobalt Nezumi Kabuto

20191227_ye_5.png

This Heavensturn it's a rat-themed kabuto- quite fitting for this year! Look how you can even see its cute front teeth captured perfectly!

Furnishing: Heavensturn Bounty

20191227_ye_6.png

If you fancy sprucing up your home for the new year, there's this adorable nezumi furnishing piece. Isn't the little rat at the top precious?

Magicked Prism (Advent Cakes)

20191227_ye_7.png

Finally, for those who may want to celebrate the new year in a more traditional Japanese style, these magicked prisms go off with a bang by displaying the iconic kagami mochi decoration midair.

What an amazing firework to have when reflecting on your fondest memories with your friends this Heavensturn! (Psstt! I've heard it's wonderful when used in /gpose!)

Just as 2019 is nearing its end, so too has this blog. I sincerely hope that with not one but two seasonal events back-to-back, your time spent in Eorzea this holiday season will be forever memorable as we close out the teens and enter this new decade together ♥

If you haven't already, be sure to check out the event site! Please look forward to Heavensturn!

FFXIV News - Dev Blog: Feasting For Fourteen

From the Dev Blog.

Hello everyone! I'm sure some of you are currently running around the lush landscapes of Onsal Hakair, charging to the next ovoo to try and claim it as your own. Keep those reflexes sharp because the next season of the feast will be starting in Patch 5.18!

20191220_sm_01_feast.jpg

As mentioned by Producer & Director Yoshida in the latest Letter from the Producer LIVE, we received lots of feedback requesting the next season of The Feast to be released soon, so we've decided to release it ahead of schedule!

However, as we were unable to prepare certain rewards in time, please keep in mind that the Wolf Collars, previously awarded to the Top 10 and as ranking tier rewards, will not be obtainable.

Rest assured, the other ranking rewards and titles are still available as usual!

I'd like to showcase the reward that will be given to the Top 100 ranking players at the end of the season. Take a look!

20191220_sm_02_feast.jpg

Vroom, vroom! Well it'll certainly be hard to miss you riding around in one of these! It certainly looks fearsome and compliments some of the previous armor awards well.

As always, there's also an exclusive trophy that will be awarded to the top ranking player of each data center. Give it your all and aim for the top of the rankings!

20191220_sm_03_feast.jpg

PvP actions saw significant change in Shadowbringers so we're very excited to see what strategies arise and how gameplay evolves. There are also additional adjustments coming to PvP actions and Onsal Hakair in Patch 5.18, so please have a look at the patch notes when they are available. After you've spent some time out in the fray, we'd love to hear your feedback on the PvP forums!

And with that, I'll see you next time, on the battlefield!
