Once again, Final Fantasy XIV is celebrating the festive period with a seasonal event being held for its players who can swoop by for some bonus rewards.
The annual Starlight Celebration Christmas event is now live, Square Enix announcing that it will run between now (on Monday, December 14th) through until the end of the month on December 31st.
In that time, Final Fantasy XIV players can take part in festive activities to unlock time-limited items including furniture for housing and a special mount.
🎶 It’s beginning to look a lot like Starlight!
In every Ward we go~
Snowman mounts cheer in disregard,
And there’s Snow-dusted Trees in every yard!
Unmelting Ice Lofts are topped with snow~ 🎶

You can head over to the official Final Fantasy XIV event site for more details, but here’s a quick breakdown of what to expect for Starlight Celebration 2020.
Characters will need be level 15 in order to begin the seasonal event quest. If you meet this requirement then make your way over to Mih Khetto’s Amphitheatre in Old Gridania, one of FF14’s starting areas. You will need to talk to an NPC called Amy Garanjy and accept the quest “A Festive Fiasco”. Her exact location coordinates are X:10.2, Y9.4.
Rewards include the Snowman Bell which can be used to summon a snowman mount, as well as three wintery furniture constructs to build with (the Snow-dusted tree, Unmelting Ice Partition, and Unmelting Ice Loft).
This is the tenth consecutive Christmas event Final Fantasy XIV has held since the MMO originally launched in 2010 before becoming Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn three years later.
The popular online game was recently updated with new features and content as part of Patch 5.4. Even without a new expansion for fans to sink their teeth into, 2020 has still been a bumper year for Final Fantasy XIV with a major announcement planned for next February. Given how the Shadowbringers story arc has wrapped, and the typical two year gap between FF14 expansions, we’ll likely get our first look at the next one in just a couple of months’ time.
