Starlight Celebration (12/07/2023)

Event Period

Friday, December 15, at 12:00 a.m. (PST) to Sunday, December 31, at 6:59 a.m.

Nab presents held hostage by nefarious goblins!

The moogles are all in a tizzy—goblins have filched some of their most prized presents and furnishings! Have mercy on the little fluff balls and wrest them back for the good of Vana'diel! But don't go unprepared—speak to moogles in the following locations to hear all about this most devious of plots.

Northern San d'Oria / Bastok Markets / Windurst Waters (north side)

* If you find yourself stuck and unable to clinch victory from the jaws of defeat, try speaking to the moogles again—they just might have some hints for you. If that doesn't work, you can also team up with a bunch of friends—the more the merrier, and the more likely you'll be able to nab some gifts!

Games for the Willing and Able!

During the Starlight Celebration, special minigames will be available for adventurers to enjoy. Clearing this mini game will grant the winner not only a new sitting emote, but also Starlight Celebration-themed items, synthesis materials for the Orchestrion furnishing, and sheet music key items!

Southern San d'Oria (Spot the Difference) / Port Bastok (Chocobo Treasure Chests) / Windurst Woods (Job Guessing-Wessing Booth)

Leaf Bench Emote
Using the Leaf Bench item will grant the bearer a key item that allows him or her to use the leaf bench emote.
* Activate the emote with the /sitchair 9 text command.

Festive Goods for Sale!

The moogles in the following locations will be selling Dream Hats and Snowman Caps, as well as other Starlight Celebration-themed items throughout the event.

This year features the Sheet of Starlight Celebration tunes that were released last year, so don't miss out!
* Synthesizing an ordinary Snowman Cap together with something snowy will produce a higher-quality Frosty Cap.
