The Rising seasonal event returns to Final Fantasy XIV on August 27

The Rising limited-time seasonal event returns to Final Fantasy XIV from August 27th through September 12th. The 9th Anniversary festivities will see players hang with the enigmatic Wandering Minstrel for an exclusive quest for which they can earn a ‘Clockwork Solus’ minion. Items available in previous iterations of the event can also be purchased from the Online Store at a discount.

Take a look at the event details below, and, while you’re here, there’s also a Moogle Treasure Trove event set to run through the launch of Patch 6.2 on August 23rd and the Moonfire Faire summer event is still on August 28th. We also had a recent Live Letter which previewed a ton of new 6.2 content.

“On August 27, FINAL FANTASY XIV celebrates its ninth anniversary with the Rising. Be sure to join the rest of Eorzea for this year’s festivities!”
