A while back, Square Enix introduced a Final Fantasy XIII-themed event called “Lightning Strikes” in its MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Upon completing this special event, players were rewarded with either Lightning’s or Snow’s set of equipment and hairstyle accordingly to their character’s gender, as well as some Final Fantasy XIII-themed weapons.
As of now, this event is long gone and many players from all around the world have been requesting for a chance to get their hands on these lovely items. On the Japanese official forums, Community Rep Fazraye announced that Square Enix will be bringing these items on the Mog Station’s cash shop. The items will be sold as sets as follow:
- Snow equipment set + hairstyle coupon + one weapon
- Lightning equipment set + hairstyle coupon + one weapon
Players will be able to pick the weapon for the job of their choice. Unfortunately, no weapons will be available for Dark Knight, Ninja, Machinist and Astrologian as these jobs were not implemented yet when the event was first released.
The release date for these items on the Mog Station will be communicated at a later time.
