Every year around this time, The Rising event makes a return to Final Fantasy XIV. This event is meant to celebrate the anniversary of the launch of A Realm Reborn, and serves as a nice reminder of the events of 1.0 and how our Warrior of Light came to be in Eorzea. Here’s everything you need to know about The Rising 2020 event in FFXIV.
FFXIV The Rising 2020 Guide
First off, as long as you have a job at level 15, you can start the quest. Simply head over to Ul’Dah, the Steps of Nald, and speak with the NPC named J’bhen Tia to start the quest titled Art of Glass.
This is a really simple quest chain that only requires you to hand out flyers to get people to check out his art exhibition detailing the history of Nanamo Ul Namo and Ul’Dah itself. Simply follow the quest markers until you reach the jigsaw puzzle stage, and after that you’ll be directed to the Wandering Minstrel NPC in the same area.
Speak with him to complete the quest, and you’ll receive your rewards.
This year, players who complete the quest will get two rewards. The first is the Wind-Up Ardbert minion. You can select and use it from your inventory, and it’ll get added to your minion guide. You’ll then be able to summon him like any other minion in the game.
Ardbert is certainly a fitting choice for this year’s minion, considering the fact that the Shadowbringers story arc has just come to an end with the release of patch 5.3.
In addition to that, you’ll also get The Sultana’s Seven, which is a wall-mounted painting that you can display in your apartment, FC room, or house in the game. The rewards aren’t terribly exciting, but for those looking to collect every single item in the game, these are definitely nice to have.
That’s all you need to know about The Rising 2020 event in FFXIV. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game.
