FFXIV New Year event guide for Heavensturn

In Heavensturn 2022, Final Fantasy XIV presents a seasonal event to celebrate the New Year! It invites new as well as veteran players to participate. Since this is the Year of the Tiger, the festival arrives with rewards such as thematic gear, house furniture, and a special FATE.

The FFXIV Heavensturn festival is available from January 5, 2022, to January 19, 2022, until 6:59 AM (PST) and you must be at least level 15 to participate. First head to Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks (The Aftecastle crystal is the closest one in case you want to use the aethernet) to find Tora Bugyo (X: 11.5 Y: 13.9), the NPC who gives Heavensturn’s first quest, ‘Tangle with a Tora’. Tora asks you to participate in a specific FATE in order to complete the quest.

Your mission is to help a group of mages to perform a ritual in which they give life to a tiger that adorns a folding screen, and the you have to defeat it. Here’s how to complete the rest of the FFXIV Heavensturn event.


Next, teleport to Middle La Noscea – Summerford Farms. You must look for the FATE ‘Tora Tora, Burning Bright’ that spawns in the south (X: 24.2 Y: 26.0) from time to time. This is a simple fight against the Phantom Byakko, where you must avoid AoE attacks. Although it is a level 15 FATE, if you are caught by too many attacks, it is quite easy to die. After finishing the quest, you need to choose if you want the Golden Tora Kabuto or the Silver Tora Kabuto reward.

It’s worth noting that after completing the quest “Tangle with a Tora”, another quests becomes available with Tora Bugyo. The quest “Let Them Eat Cake” has Tora ask you to help with another part of the celebration: handing out cakes. To complete it, you must go to Limsa Lominsa Lower Decks (you can go to Hawkers’ Alley by aethernet), and talk to the NPC called Mochi Daikan. After a small cutscene, go back to Tora to deliver the quest. As a reward, you’re given ten Magicked Prisms (Advent Cakes). It is important to mention that you can repeat this quest as many times as you wish during the period of the event.

Now, if you wanted both helmets that Tora showed you, don’t worry! You can still buy the one you didn’t receive as a reward. Every time the “Tora Tora, Burning Bright” FATE is completed, you will receive a certain number of Heavensturn of the Tiger Ticket as a reward, depending on how much you have participated, ranging from one to ten tickets. These can be used to buy the seasonal items sold by Tora Shonin (X: 11.3 Y: 13.7), a NPC who is next to Tora Bugyo.

Here are the complete list of items and their prices:

  • Golden Tora Kabuto – five Heavensturn of the Tiger Tickets
  • Silver Tora Kabuto – five Heavensturn of the Tiger Tickets
  • The White Tiger folding screen – five Heavensturn of the Tiger Tickets
  • Zoni (set of ten) – one Heavensturn of the Tiger Ticket
  • Magicked Prism (advent Cakes) – one Heavensturn of the Tiger Ticket
