Every year, Final Fantasy XIV players around the world get into the Holiday mood with the traditional Starlight Celebration.
The seasonal event is basically the game’s version of Christmas, with its own lore and legends that expand pretty much each year.
This year’s celebration will begin on December 15th, and end on December 31st. As usual, there will be a questline starting at the amphitheater in Gridania, received from NPC Amh Garanjy. The requirement will be level 15.
This time around we get no outfits, with the main reward being a flying bear mount dressed like Santa that can throw presents which explode in sparkling snowflakes on impact. On top of that, we get two Kugane-style tabletop decorations, a mini-Christmas three, a lovely poster, and an orchestrion roll (presumably featuring the absolutely adorable Starlight Celebration theme by Nobuo Uematsu, that has been preserved since 1.0).
Final Fantasy XIV is currently available for PS4 and PC.
Like every year, permit me to end my annual Starlight Celebration post, with a small reminder of that year in which we had no Starlight Celebration. It’s not only a nod to my personal nostalgia but also a fond reminder of just how far this game has come.
