Love is in the air in FINAL FANTASY XIV Online

A special Valentione’s Day event is underway. But are you Team Astrid, Rodrigault or Bert?
By Duncan Heaney

A new seasonal event is underway in FINAL FANTASY XIV Online - House Valentione needs your help with matters of the heart.

Three characters are currently competing to become Hydaelyn’s emissary of love at this year’s Valentione’s Day festival – Astrid, Rodrigault and Bert.

Each believes that they are perfectly suited to offer insight and advice for the land’s lovelorn, but which will win the role? Well, that’s largely up to you. All of you.

As part of this most romantic of events, you’ll have an opportunity to vote on which of the three you think is most deserving. Not only that, you’ll get special rewards based on who you pick.

Be aware that you’ve only got a limited time to start the quest and cast your vote – you can do so from now until February 9, 2020.

Then, the results of the competition will be announced and players can enjoy the remainder of the event until February 17, 2020. You can still start the quest and earn rewards once the voting has completed, but you’ll want to take part at the start if you want to help influence the decision!

About FINAL FANTASY XIV Online events

Valentione’s Day is but one of the many seasonal events that occur in FINAL FANTASY XIV Online throughout the year.

For example, just a few weeks ago Heavensturn marked the birth of a New Year with a new quest, new gear and some fun surprises. Or, right now, Moogle Treasure Trove - The Hunt for Soldiery event is live. It tasks players with completing various duties to earn rewards, including some items that are unique to the event.

So it’s worth taking time to visit the world of Hydaelyn regularly – there’s always something new to see and do.

If you’ve yet to experience one of these events, or indeed the world of FINAL FANTASY XIV Online at all, then now is the perfect time to jump in.
