The Daily Grind: What’s the ideal reward for an MMO holiday event?

This isn't even my final form.

Every time holiday events roll around in Final Fantasy XIV, I feel compelled to do them on my main character if no one else. Here’s the problem: I basically never use the rewards. I just want to have them in the event that I ever want them, but so many of the rewards are cosmetic gear that I would never use for glamours. But every so often it’s a bunch of decorations or chocobo bardings or items I’m happy to use, and then I’m very happy.

I don’t mean to criticize cosmetic armor – I just don’t personally have much use for Christmas-themed outfits on the regular. Some people probably do. Some people have very little use for anything that isn’t an actual mechanical upgrade. So what about you? What do you think is the ideal sort of reward for a holiday event? What are you happy to see, and what would you be happy to never see again?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
