The Doll Festival will return to FFXI on February 25, 2022. This is a recurring event that comes up around Hinamatsuri. People can see displays with dolls sitting on platforms. They can also collect certain rewards like furnishings and foods.
Square Enix set up a page going over the event, as usual. People can stop by Bastok, San d’Oria, and Windurst to get items from Moogles. Specifically, in Bastok there is one Moogle in the mines at I-9 and another in the markets at G-8. The San d’Oria ones can be found in the south at J-9 and in the north at D-8. Finally, the Windurst Waters moogle is at F-5 and the other is at Windurst Woods at K-10.
Given that this is based on the March 3rd Japanese holiday Hinamatsuri, the decorations and one reward feature doll displays. Square Enix’s site showed a screenshot that seems to confirm both furnishing rewards will return during the FFXI 2022 Doll Festival. It showed the Bonbori light and the Festival Dolls display. While the page didn’t mention it, in the past the Elvaan, Hume, Mithran, and Tarutaru Rice Cake food items could also be collected during the event.
This is only one of the things going on in FFXI in February 2022. The Mog Wardrobe is larger than before. The Master Level cap jumped from 20 to 30 too. Not to mention The Voracious Resurgence story is ongoing.
Final Fantasy XI is available for PCs. The 2022 Doll Festival will appear in FFXI between February 25, 2022 and March 11, 2022.
