Quote:
Signs of an Old Flame

Before the fall of Dalamud, which would bring about the end of the Sixth Astral Era, a Bombard invasion set ablaze panic in the hearts and minds of the people, threatening to reduce our cities to smoldering rubble and ash. Thanks to a band of adventurers who unwittingly joined the Cascadiers, the igneous invaders were vanquished, and the realm was spared a fiery fate, or so reports had us believe.
There has been talk of sightings around Costa del Sol in eastern La Noscea. However, one must always be wary of the whispers of sailors. Ever wont to make sea hares into giant sea serpents and moat carp into mermaids, their wild fabrications have led many an adventurer to misfortune and abashment. Although these were but simple rumors, I would be remiss to overlook reports now coming in from all corners of the realm. Talk of Bombards has spread like wildfire, and for the first time in five years, the Adventurers' Guild has announced the return of the Moonfire Faire.

The Fallacious Festival Returns

Five long years have passed since the fall of Dalamud, and a new generation of adventurers has taken up arms in the absence of the Warriors of Light. But would they be so foolish as to run headlong into the proverbial oven that is the Moonfire Faire? There's no mistaking the Cascadier officers thronging the streets with their pamphlets, permeating the air with platitudes and empty promises. It may not be long before even you, dear reader, come face to face with these ardent recruiters.
Though times may change, the insatiable desire for exotic garments and gear shall ever persist among adventurers. A sense of yearning can be seen burning bright in their eyes at the mere mention of garbs they would receive in preparation for battle. The Adventurers' Guild is sure to entice adventurers to heed the call of the Cascadiers, but will it be enough? I can only hope the whimsical farce known as Moonfire Faire will both drive off this incendiary incursion and bolster our spirits.

The Fates you need are random but I did mine in CosaDe Sol and got 30 ash and the +fire resistance is 15 each and the +water is 3 each. I only got 1 pair to get the achevment.

Is this a female-only event? Because I'd be led to think so from the promotional artwork. Smiley: oyvey

I doubt it. One of my favorite things to do in XI during events like this was throw the swimwear & some sunglasses on my Galka and run around town.

Scared the crap out of a lot of people. Smiley: grin

I came into work at 7am, I will be at work till 5pm, and will be on campus until my wife gets out of class at around 8pm. In addition, I logged out in the camp area right before the first fight with Ifrit (wish me luck! :) ), so I have to fight him before I can do the Moonfire Faire stuff. It'll be a bit of a wait, but I know I'll have fun. I love events like this. I always enjoy the special events in GW1/GW2 (both of which I still play), and I enjoyed the ones in v1.0, so I look forward to the ones in ARR.

Until then, have fun, everyone!

You can leave that area after you've unlocked the ability to queue for the Ifrit fight. No reason to stay there really unless you enjoy the scenery. If you're DPS could potentially kill 2 birds with one stone, queue for Ifrit while grinding stuff for the Moonfire Faire.

I just might do that. I wasn't sure if I was at that point yet with Ifrit where I could safely leave that area and go do other stuff, but you've just confirmed it for me, so thank you. Smiley: nod That 'waiting' area wasn't very interesting to begin with, so it doesn't bother me if I don't see it again. I'm just glad they don't force you to stay there.

I'm definitely DPS (Lvl 22 Archer), so I already know I'll be waiting for awhile. Smiley: lol

I have never seen anything like it in my video game life. The males... Oh god... The outfits... I can't stop laughing.

All my lalafelle needs is a pole and he will be ready for being an exotic dancer.

Yep same here, I'm hoping they add that with the next patch because we really need some cosmetic slots! And more than just one or two lol! But I've got all my sets ready to go, even took some screenies of my mi'qote at the beach near Costa Del Sol! She looks adorable in her swimwear :D The striped one is my favorite, it looks like a bikini I have in rl LOL!
