It’s that wonderful time of the year once more - the Moonfire Faire is now live in FINAL FANTASY XIV Online!

The seasonal event brings a range of new quests to complete, activities to partake in and items to collect.

You’ll have to be quick though - it started Wednesday August 7, 2019 at 08.00am GMT and ends Monday August 26, 2019 at 14.59am GMT.

What is the Moonfire Faire?

The Moonfire Faire is a timed event that takes place each summer in FINAL FANTASY XIV Online.

It’s a highlight of the year that sees players from all over Hydaelyn take a break from being big brave heroes, and head to the city of Limsa Lominsa to see hang out at the festival, complete entertaining new quests and collect cool limited time clothes and items.

How do you find the Moonfire Faire?

First you’ll want to travel to the Upper Decks of Limsa Lominsa and seek out Mayaru Moyaru.

The excitable Lalafell can barely contain his enthusiasm for this year’s event - speak to him, and he’ll be only too happy to tell you all about the many wonders that await attendees.

His exact co-ordinates are: X:11.5, Y:13.8

What items can you get this year?

One of the best things about the Moonfire Faire is that it gives you a chance to change up your wardrobe with exclusive clothing. This year, you’ll have access to some particularly stylish threads, including:

  • Moonfire Hachimaki
  • Red / White / Black Moonfire Happi
  • Moonfire Tabi
  • White / Black Painted Moogle Masks
  • Painted Namazu Mask

You can also get event-exclusive items like these:

  • Portable Pool - a peculiar rubber enclosure that can be filled with water for purposes of mild entertainment (Editor’s note: I MUST have this).

  • Wind Chime - nothing says “summer” like the dissonant tinkling of half a dozen wind chimes at once

  • Moonfire Faire Advertisement - A hand-painted notice advertising the Eorzean Nimble Warrior course

If you missed previous Moonfire Faire items, here’s some good news: you’ll also be able to buy some of them from vendors at the festival!

The 2019 Moonfire Faire is live, so head over there now to look, leap and live it up!
