FINAL FANTASY® XIV Online today celebrates its 7th anniversary since the release of A Realm Reborn in 2013, introducing a special event that brings the festivities into the game for all to enjoy. The anniversary arrives alongside the title surpassing 20 million registered players as well as the release of Patch 5.3, which introduces an expanded Free Trial experience to make it easier than ever for new players to start their adventure.
The Rising anniversary seasonal event will run through September 14th and offers a unique questline whereby players will be tasked with helping out J’bhen Tia in Ul’dah. His exhibition of stained glass evokes memories of a pivotal moment in history, but he needs the assistance of a willing volunteer to ensure the event proceeds without a hitch! New rewards go to those who assist in this feat, including a Wind-up Ardbert minion and replica artwork to use in player housing.
All players level 15 and above, including new adventurers exploring Eorzea with the recently expanded Free Trial, are eligible to participate in the event and earn all of the rewards. Complete details about the event, including where players can begin the questline, may be found here: https://na.finalfantasyxiv.
