OP  9/11/13 8:20:05 AM#1

With the recent debut of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, the first update was, naturally, a seasonal event. In our latest FFXIV column, we wonder at how much fun these types of events truly are. See what we think before lending your voice to the conversation in the comments.

That is until I logged in and actually took part in the Moonfire Faire. My expectations for the event greatly outweighed the reality of what was to occur. While I had hoped that we would end up with a few heralds in each city that would lead our adventurers on a series of quests in the wider world what we ended up with was a vendor that was selling swimwear and a herald who told us that our help was needed off the coast of Limsa Lominsa in Costa Del Sol. It turned out that the FATE you needed to participate in to acquire the wet bomb ash, the event currency, was already in the game and I had plenty in my pack to buy all the unique items. If you are into bondage, these rewards are for you.

I stumbled on the FATE and completed it. So next time I was in town I checked out the vender. All I saw was stuff that would fill my already overcrowded Armory Inventory. Nothing I actually liked.

 

So I didn't buy anything. Very underwhelming...unlike the rest of the game.

You understand that seasonal items can be stored in your chest inside your inn room. It acts seperately from your armour inventory so no need to lug that stuff around.

You mean the armoire? Or my retainer?

 

Maybe I'll buy a speedo after all!

 You can put the stuff in your armoire.  You also get a title.

As a rule I generally stay away from these. In FFXIV I decided to let my pre-conceived notions go and check it out. As the columnist stated it was very short lived and not exactly "special" as the FATE in question was already in the game. It costs ~200 wet ash to buy all over the seasonal swimsuits, my friend who had been grinding FATEs in Costa Del Sol had over 600 already in his inventory. 

 

Hopefully this does not demonstrate their effort to put into seasonal events in the future, because it was really disappointing.

 

OH and SE, Why is there no swimsuit vendor at the only real beach in the entire game? Some NPC is missing out on big business here!

Will they rehost these events on a new server after they finally allow people to buy their game again?

Still not able to purchase online at their website, GMG, or Amazon and if they don't launch new servers for people who have been locked out for weeks I may not be interested in purchasing.

I hate them. I've never completed one in any mmorpg. Heck, I never game them more than 5-10 minutes effort. Immersion breaking 9/10 times.

Events are a form of content that some people enjoy, some dont. Just like raiding, arenas, crafting, etc. Thats the sign of a well rounded mmo.

If you thought the events were dynamic, you'll think the stories are living.

It is one of the easiest ones. Didn't even had to put too much effort and got all the summer sets. Best part is i didn't even know that FATE was part of event and before i knew i had all the 'wet bombard ash i needed'.

Don't see the use of the costumes yet though since there are no appearance slots.

@Azarith because of the server troubles there is currently no specified end date to this event.

I don't say this often, but I actually agree with BigDaddy.

No appearance slots = waste of effort.

I thought it was amusing for what it was.  It isn't like this one is crazy missable.  The only thing I did was snatch the achievement.  Making it available to all levels was also fun.  The swarm that came together for the FATE was a bit... disconcerting.  No one talking.  Everyone attacking stuff.  People activating the homing balloon and then someone else activating the next and stepping on toes.  Was a bit.. meh.

The shorts/tops were all stuff I wouldn't EVER be caught wearing (though I stare at the ladies when THEY wear them to the beach).  Also, I'm a lala and those clothes are just... no.

:-)

Where is my appearance slots?  C'mon SE.. you give us actual COSTUME apparel but no place to wear them.

Swimsuits? Another reason to stay away from this game

Why don't you just make one? Its about as easy as 2 clicks.

I'm personally not a huge fan of seasonal events mirroring real world seasonal events in mmos. I'd much rather see lore based events that occur based on actual events in the game that may have transpired. The twelve gods, the calamity, etc., etc. reason being is that if I'm expected to absorb all this information/lore presented to me via quest, fates and npcs...why muck it up by scrambling to create some detached event not even grounded in actual lore. It kinda reflects my feelings on clamoring to get it done: no thanks!

For me, the event was a bunch of wet ash. Got excited when I saw the splash screen because I love seasonal events. Went to talk with the quest giver, but he wasn't there.

 

Why?

 

Because I wasn't level 30. There wasn't any information saying that there was a level requirement; I had to ask guildmates. Plus, if it wasn't for the splash screen, I might have missed the event since their was no in-game criers talking about the increase in bomb numbers. Other than decorations in one small area, nothing in the world spoke to an event going on.

 

So I'm disappointed that there isn't anything for the lower levels to do, other than get free ash from guildmates who have an abundance, so you can get the underwhelming suites as well.

 

The game is awesome, but hoping for better events in the future.
