Final Fantasy XIV rings in the new year with the annual Heavensturn event


While those of us in the real world are ringing in the new year with champagne and fireworks, the denizens of Eorzea are holding their own celebration to commemorate the beginning of the new year under the auspices of the Twelve. Until January 15th, Final Fantasy XIV players can take part in the Heavensturn festivities by speaking to the Inoshishi Bugyo in Limsa Lominsa, where he is enlisting the assistance of adventurers to spread word of the celebration to the people of the city.

Players will be able to sample some delectable, festive confections and take part in celebratory quests and events. And as 2019 is the year of the pig, players will also be able to get their hands on some adorable porcine accoutrements, including the Inoshishi Kabuto headwear and the Boar’s Head Kadomatsu housing decoration. In addition, players who missed out on the Heavensturns of previous years will be able to pick up some of the previous goodies at the seasonal shop. For all the details on this year’s Heavensturn celebration, you can check out the official announcement at FFXIV’s official site.

I’ve got one more day to decide whether I want to buy this game and grind or continue on with Path of Exile indefinitely.

Time to watch level 70 veteran players get one shot by a mochi hammer in a starting area, the yearly tradition!


That’s like the one thing that folks at 70 in XIV seem to be really horrid at – paying attention to what the enemy is casting and how fast they’re doing it.
