FFXIV: Moonfire Faire
As I delve deeper and deeper into FFXIV and spend more time actually being in the world of Eorzea, I'm excited to take part in world events. Recently we had the "Make it Rain" campaign revolving around the Gold Saucer. Now, we have the Moonfire Faire which will run from August 13th to August 26th.
To begin the quest chain, speak to Mayaru Moyaru at the Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (x:11.5 Y:13.8). This will then take you to Costa del Sol. It is at this point the most important quest of all is revealed. It falls to you, brave adventurer, to procure ice so the most delicious iced treat can be made. There will be a little bouncing around on the island as you view various cutscenes and talk to the different colorful characters involved.
Fast forward to a quick Fate on the same island to slay the reviled bombard and a victory lap handing out ice cream, and the polar bear mount is yours! All in all, it takes less than 15 minutes to get this adorable new mount.
Rewards include the polar bear mount, an outdoor mask stall, some fireworks, and delicious food for your estate. The Fate reappears every 15 minutes and can be farmed for vouchers to purchase said items from the event vendor. Each completion of the fate would award me 15 vouchers.
Events like these are what truly make a game and community feel like a home. As I've said in the past, these kinds of events are my favorite in any game, be it Winterveil in WoW or Festival of the Lost in Destiny. So, it makes transitioning to a new game like FFXIV all the easier when fun events like this pop up.
