Final Fantasy XIV’s annual summer event is just around the corner. The Moonfire Faire returns next week beginning August 13, giving players a chance to complete special limited-time quests and earn exclusive summer-themed items.
The event kicks off next Monday at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET and is scheduled to run for nearly two full weeks, concluding at 7:59 PM PT / 10:59 PM ET on Sunday, August 26. During the Moonfire Faire, players will be able to get a special splash emote and an assortment of new clothing and other items for their character and house. You can see the full list of them below.
- Endless Summer Glasses (head gear)
- Endless Summer Top (body gear)
- Endless Summer Bottom (leg gear)
- Endless Summer Sandals (feet gear)
- Splash (emote)
- Mosquito Moogle (tabletop item)
- Curry Plate (tabletop item)
On top of the new items, players will have another chance to get their hands on some items from previous Moonfire Faires as well. During the event, a selection of older items will be available for purchase at Moonfire Faire vendors. Square Enix hasn’t revealed which older items players will be able to get this time, although it’s likely that some of last year’s will be up for purchase.
To participate in the Moonfire Faire, you’ll need to be at least level 30 and speak to Mayaru Moyaru in the Upper Decks of Limsa Lominsa to begin the “Jump to the Beach” quest. This, in turn, will open up the entire event. You can read more about this year’s Moonfire Faire on the official Final Fantasy XIV website.
Before the Moonfire Faire rolls around, players will have a different special event to embark on. Beginning August 7, Monster Hunter’s Rathalos will appear as a new foe in Final Fantasy XIV. Players who are at least level 70 and have completed the Stormblood expansion’s main campaign will be able to take on the “New King on the Block Quest,” which will culminate in a fight against the fearsome monster. Those who manage to defeat it will be able to get Rathalos gear and a Rathalos mount. You can read more about the Monster Hunter crossover event here.
