The Duodecennial anniversary of FINAL FANTASY XI is upon us! (05/16/2014)

Today marks twelve years of FINAL FANTASY XI.

We are able to celebrate this day thanks to all the adventurers who keep Vana'diel close to their hearts. Thank you for your steadfast support.

Last year, we held a number of campaigns to commemorate XI's eleventh anniversary, and this year we would like to keep the most popular of those events and further improve upon them.

We will continue to provide monthly version updates centered on adjustments to make the game easy to enjoy for solo players who are unable to play for long sessions, and will also provide party-oriented content and difficult battles for those who wish to adventure with their friends. We also hope you enjoy the continuation of the Seekers of Adoulin mission as it prepares to reach its thrilling climax.

The development and operations teams are working tirelessly to provide you with the most engrossing Vana'diel experience to date, and we look forward to continuing our journeys with you in this, our twelfth year of service.

Adventurer Appreciation Campaign

During this campaign, moogles stationed throughout the three nations will provide players with a variety of information and records about their adventures, and may even give you a commemorative gift or two!

This year's incarnation of the campaign brings with it the all-new duodecennial ring and vocation ring!

* Players may not receive the effects of both the duodecennial ring and vocation ring at the same time. Using one of the rings will overwrite the effects of the other.
* If a player uses the vocation ring without having first unlocked the job points feature, he will not earn any capacity points even though one use of the ring has been expended. Read on for information on how to unlock job points.

Event moogles may be found in the following locations.
Southern San d'Oria (J-9) / Northern San d'Oria (D-8) / Bastok Mines (H-9) / Bastok Markets (G-8) / Windurst Waters (North Side F-5) / Windurst Woods (K-10)

Southern San d'Oria (I-8) / Bastok Markets (F-8) / Windurst Waters (F-9)

Goblin Rejoicers
Southern San d'Oria (J-9) / Bastok Markets (F-8) / Windurst Waters (F-9)
