The Rising is held every year in FFXIV, and 2021 is no different.
The launch of Final Fantasy XIV back then wasn’t as great as everyone had envisioned. The game had a rough launch before it has turned into the MMORPG that they know and love today. Soon, Square Enix is set to celebrate their 8th anniversary of the launch of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. You know what this means – yes, The Rising event is coming back for 2021.
This is no surprise for players who have been playing at least for a year or two at this point. The Rising has been celebrated every year since 2014 and serves as a reminder for players on how the game made its redemption following its rough patch during 2013.
For those that have yet to join the event, they’re in luck! In The Rising 2021, they can expect some new quests that they can embark on which can potentially reward them with FFXIV Gil or FFXIV mounts that can’t be found in any FFXIV store that they see in the cities.
What is The Rising?
The Rising is an annual event in Final Fantasy XIV where it commemorates the anniversary of the iconic MMO’s relaunch as A Realm Reborn, their first foot to the success that the game is set to have in the future after it.
The Foundation Day was the original event back then but was then replaced by The Rising. Players are most excited for The Rising because of potentially having a new storyline and FFXIV mounts to collect and because the event typically runs concurrently with the Moonfire Faire event, a seasonal event typically held during summer in the northern hemisphere.
Players can expect the same treatment for The Rising of that for the other annual events where the three main city-states of Eorzea and residential districts such as the Shirogane district are decorated for the duration of the event. Back in 2018, there was an instance where The Calamity Retold made an appearance. Sadly, ever since that time, it never appeared again. But who knows? 2021 might be the year for those who expect it!
How the Event Works
Keep in mind that only players who have reached level 15 will be able to start the questline for The Rising. Players at least level 15 can visit Kipih Jakkya in Ul’dah’s Steps on the Nald district. To give a rundown as to who Kipig Jakkya is, she’s a reporter who has been part of FFXIV even before the relaunch of A Realm Reborn.
It’s safe to say that she’s one of the OG NPCs in the ever-expanding game. To trigger the Rising Calm quest, players must talk to her. For 2021, the prizes players can get are the Red Moon parasol and Nymeia Potpurry firework.
The Red Moon parasol symbolizes Dalamud’s fall during the Seventh Umbral Calamity. The design is definitely on the minimalistic side, but that’s not a bad thing considering that a parasol doesn’t necessarily have load designs in the first place. As for the Nymeia Potpurry, players can use it to make flowery wreaths appear.
When Will the Rising Begin?
The Rising will start on August 27, just a day after the Moonfire Faire event’s end, and will be available for players until September 9. Square Enix also mentioned that the past The Rising event items will be sold at a vendor for this year, making it the perfect chance for players who missed out on getting the goodies from the past year.
There’s no mention made as to what items might reappear from the vendor, but as a reference, one of the items in The Rising 2020 event was the Wind-up Ardbert Minion.
The Future of FFXIV
For those that still aren’t aware of the huge news, there’s a new expansion coming to Final Fantasy XIV called Endwalker. Set to release on November 23, which is just a stone’s throw away at this point, it’s the fourth expansion that brings the tale of Hydaelyn and Zodiark to a conclusion that’s been eons in the making.
What’s monumental about the Endwalker is that it finishes the main storyline which started from A Realm Reborn–the final arc to the long and arduous adventure, if you will.
The Rising is expected to be an emotional moment for both the players and the development team alike. A good story tugs the heartstrings, and for those that have been around since the very beginning, they ought to prepare to share a tear, or two after they finish the questline.
The extra freebies are pretty great too, and with the older Rising-exclusive items making a comeback, players can finally get the FFXIV mounts from the previous events that they missed out on. They just have to make sure they have enough FFXIV Gil for it. What do you think about The Rising event for 2021? Let us know down below.
