FFXIV Moonfire Faire 2022 marks the season to enjoy the beaches in Eorzea. Every year, the popular MMO game brings traditional seasonal events and Moonfire Faire is one of the favourites that attracts new and returning players to have fun and get their hands on some stylish outfits. This year’s event takes you to Costa Del Sol and the prizes are for everyone who can work their way through the challenging and somewhat explosive tracks of FFXIV Moonfire Faire 2022 – or not, as you’ll soon learn.
This year’s edition of FFXIV Moonfire Faire began on August 10, 2022, and finishes on August 26 at 7:59 PDT (15:59 BST). Participating in this event is quite simple – the only prerequisite is to have a character of at least level 30. With your level 30+ character, all you need to do is go to Limsa Lominsa – Upper Decks and receive the quest “A Matter of Course” from Mayaru Moyaru (X: 11.5 Y: 13.8). This quest will take you to Costa Del Sol where you must talk to Haermaga (X: 36.2 Y: 26.7), the Moonfire Faire Chairman. From this point, enjoy the cutscenes and dialogue until you’re sent on your way.
FFXIV Moonfire Faire 2022: Fhul Me Once
Instead of requiring you to farm plenty of tokens and needing to participate in multiple FATEs like events have done in the past, the Moonfire Faire 2022 event will give you the whole set of summer glamour items if you complete the quest “Fhul Me Once”. It becomes available after the series of cutscenes related to the first quest ends – just talk to R’fhul Tia (X: 36.2 Y: 24.9).
To complete this quest, you will need to show R’fhul Tia how a true adventurer faces challenges by completing the circuit that was built for Moonfire Faire. It has two phases with two different tracks each. All you need to do is to complete the phases and talk to the NPC in the final line. There is an extra track that takes you to the highest points in the structure, however, you don’t need to complete it in order to deliver the quest and receive the rewards.
How to complete FFXIV Moonfire Faire 2022
The first phase of the circuit has two tracks. The one on the right is based on platforms that require you to jump from one to another. The track on the left has no jumping, but you will have to cross a platform full of walls and bombs that can throw you out of the area if you get caught by their explosion. If this happens, you need to restart from the beginning.
You will find the same split in the second phase. Now, the track on the right is the one with the bombs, while the one on the left is a platforming challenge. In both cases, although it takes a little more patience, the bomb tracks are the easiest to go through.
There is also a third option for players who just want to complete the quest and get the rewards without running the tracks. Before each set of tracks, you can find a character called Faire Adventurer (X: 36.9 Y: 28.3 and X: 36.5 Y: 30.8). By talking to them, they will teleport you to the end of the circuit.
Regardless of how you get to the finishing line, once you have made it, you can complete the quest by talking with Haermaga again.
