FFXIV Eat Pizza Emote Broken for Au Ra Avatars in 7.0

Following the release of the 7.0 FFXIV patch and Dawntrail early access, a number of bugs have come up, and one affects people who use the Eat Pizza emote and have male Au Ra Warriors of Light. When attempting to use it in-game, the facial animation will break between taking a bite of the pizza and smiling to give a thumbs up. [Thanks, Hope_Incarnate and ViaMagicant on X!]

The FFXIV Eat Pizza emote started out as a GrubHub promotion that debuted back in December 2021. (It experienced issues at the time, due to some people not getting one despite fulfilling the conditions for the promotion.) In November 2023, it was added to the online store for $5. When used, the character appears to eat a slice of pizza, then give a thumbs up. 

Here’s a video clip from ViaMagicant showing what happens when a male Au Ra character attempts to use the FFXIV Eat Pizza emote in FFXIV following the 7.0 update.

Since then, people also turned to the official FFXIV forums to submit bug reports for the error.

Following the end of the 48-hour maintenance and early access launch of Dawntrail, Square Enix shared many alerts concerning known issues in FFXIV 7.0. For example, the Amon fight in Syrcus Tower is broken. The company also alerted people to congestion issues.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and Dawntrail early access is live now. The full Dawntrail launch is on July 2, 2024.
