A ton of new content has been introduced for Final Fantasy XIV with patch 6.0, adding the latest extension Endwalker December 7. The developers haven’t forgotten about the seasonal events, however.
The holiday season will return to the MMO game with the Starlight Celebration 2021 event, offering some cute snowy items to collect. The event will kick off on December 16 and end on December 31 at 8:59 am CT, shortly before New Years Eve, giving players two weeks to complete its content.
The event will see the return of seasonal items from its previous iterations, as well as the addition of two cute minions – Rudy and the Squirrel Emperor – and housing decoration.
Last year, the event offered a snowman mount as a reward for completing the quest. In 2017, he introduced the Starlight Bear mount. However, it is not known if they will be among the items to return this year.
Players will be able to begin the event quest titled A Very Yeti Starlight by speaking to Amh Garanjy at Old Gridania, at X: 10.2, Y: 9.4.
The only requirement to start the quest is to have reached at least level 15, which should open it to most players, including free trial users.
Usually the event consists of a short mission to be completed in the form of a repeatable DESTINY. Completing the quest will reward players with new minions and the decoration item.
