The Rising returns to Final Fantasy XIV on August 26

I'm purely decorative!

Another year has passed, and that means it’s time to celebrate the anniversary of Final Fantasy XIV once again with the annual return of The Rising. This year offers players a fresh set of rewards, naturally; there’s a new wind-up Y’shtola minion available for players sporting her Shadowbringers outfit, along with wall art to commemorate the Stormblood series of major patches. There’s no real in-universe reason for having the art, perhaps, but it sure does look nice.

Players will also face something of a change because the quest for the anniversary event requires level 30; the quest starts in Costa del Sol, thus justifying the slightly higher-than-usual barrier for players. It remains to be seen exactly what this event will entail and if it will tease future content along the way (something of a tradition for the anniversary), but we’ll all find out in just under a week as we celebrate another year of operation in the wake of a delightful expansion.

Can’t wait to see the vague hints to future content (red herring or otherwise).
