Final Fantasy XIV is getting in the whole Final Fantasy XI 18th anniversary celebration. An event with a rather lovely reward is returning to the game. Until June 22, 2020, people can participate in “The Maiden’s Rhapsody: Memories of an Unseen Realm.” If you do, you’ll be able to get the Final Fantasy XIV Amatsu armor set.
This marks the third time the Final Fantasy XI collaboration event has run in Final Fantasy XIV. It first showed up in November 2015, as a means of commemorating the Final Fantasy XI finale. Then, in November 2017, it returned to celebrate Final Fantasy XI’s 15th anniversary. This time, it’s showing up right as Square Enix is honoring the original MMO’s 18th.
The event begins by going to Limsa Lominsa’s Upper Decks to talk to Harbor Herald reporter Remumu. After you do, you’ll kick off the seasonal event and interact with Final Fantasy XI: Rhapsodies of Vana’diel’s Iroha. If you go through it all, you’ll end up getting the Final Fantasy XIV Amatsu Hachigane, Haidate, Sune-ate, Tekko, and Togi armor pieces. (These can be worn by characters of either gender.) If you have already gone through this “The Maiden’s Rhapsody” questline and have the set though, you won’t be able to do it again.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Final Fantasy XI is available for the PC. In case you missed it, Siliconera interviewed Square Enix’s Yoji Fujito and Akihiko Matsui about Final Fantasy XI.
