It's time for the Warriors of Light to return to Costa Del Sol for summertime fun in Final Fantasy XIV, and there are some rewards to be earned, as well as summer fun to be had.
This year, the rewards for the Moonfire Faire quest are the Phoenix Riser Helmet and Phoenix Riser Suit, two items that make Warriors of Light look a little more powerful than normal. Of course, in order to obtain the suit, players will need to do some activities first in the form of quests.
Moonfire Faire 2023 began on Aug. 10 and runs until Aug 26, which gives players a few weeks to complete the quests and earn their rewards. The time requirement to obtain the items isn't long and will only take up an hour or less of players' time.
Where to start the FFXIV Moonfire Faire 2023 questline
Since the event usually takes place in Costa Del Sol, players would assume that the quest starts there, but those looking to begin the Faire need to head to Limsa Lominsa first. The quest titled "Allergic to Sunshine" can be found in the Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks at X: 11.5, Y: 13.8. Only then will the quest take you to Costa Del Sol where you can continue through the quest.
Once you finish "Allergic to Sunshine", you'll need to pick up the next quest called "I Am the Sunshine" from Haermaga in Costa Del Sol at X: 31.8, Y: 30.3. This quest is quite lengthy compared to the one before it, so make sure you give yourself about 15 to 20 minutes to complete it. Once you're finished, it will award both items and an achievement.
Unfortunately for those who were looking forward to getting previous years' outfits, the only purchasable items from the Moonfire Faire Vendor are consumable one-time use items. such as firecrackers and fireworks. The only way to get the outfits from previous years is to buy them on the online store. That will likely be the case next year too, so if you like the Phoenix Riser set, make sure to finish the quest in time.
