When the latest FFXIV patch dropped, it added an Ear Wiggle emote, but it seems it doesn’t include a special Viera animation. When someone earns and uses /earwiggle, it will temporarily make Loporrit ears appear on their avatar’s head. It does the same for Viera, who already have rabbit ears, rather than make them use their hands to make their own ears wiggle as in the official 2023 New Year’s art.
Here’s a video clip from Twitter user Runa, which shows a Viera using the new FFXIV Ear Wiggle emote.

The official TikTok account for the game also shared a video of characters from different races, like a Lalafell or Miqo’te, look when performing it.

To take part in these tribal main quests, you must have finished Endwalker and “Dream a Little Dream,” as well as be at Disciple of the Hand level 80.
