Final Fantasy XI: Harvest Festival 2009

Posted on: October 13, 2009

Wonder about the festival? Read up on it here

And so this olden tale draws to a close. Its legacy, however, lives on in Vana’diel to this day. As word of the young man’s escapades spread, carved pumpkins, once considered humble fall festival decorations, became seen as magical charms used to ward away unwanted visitants from the netherworld. So when next you take carving knife to pumpkin, pray spend a moment in remembrance of the two youths of legend whose undying love found a way for them to be together

How long is it on for?

The Harvest Festival event will skulk into town on Friday, October 16 at 1:00 a.m. (PDT) and dissipate into the darkness on Monday, November 2 at the same hour.

The events are:

Event Schedule
The Harvest Festival event will skulk into town on Friday, October 16 at 1:00 a.m. (PDT) and dissipate into the darkness on Monday, November 2 at the same hour.

Your Purple-winged Partners
Brave adventurers willing to take up the task of driving off the unholy infiltrators should seek out the moogles stationed in the areas below. Complete the tasks assigned, and you shall be met with great reward!

West Ronfaure (I-6) / East Ronfaure (G-6)
North Gustaberg (L-8) / South Gustaberg (J-7)
West Sarutabaruta (J-8) / East Sarutabaruta (G-11)

Trick or Treat!
As Harvest Festival tradition goes, the residents of the three nations have dressed themselves in fearsome costumes, hoping to spook adventurers and earn a treat or two in the process.
By trading certain treats to costumed NPCs, characters will be able to dress up as monsters or beastmen themselves, and acquire beloved Harvest Festival items to boot!

Southern San d’Oria / Northern San d’Oria
Bastok Mines / Bastok Markets
Windurst Waters / Windurst Woods
*NPCs will accept most food items of the Sweets category, with certain exceptions that do not appeal to their finicky palates.

Wake of the Lilies
The Harvest Festival will again play host to the Wake of the Lilies, with three aspiring exorcists from the West making their annual pilgrimage to the three nations. Would-be shadow-hunters should seek them out at the following locations:

Gertrude in Northern San d’Oria (D-8)
Brian in Bastok Markets (G-8)
Roger in Windurst Waters (F-5)
*After successfully completing an exorcist’s request, players will be required to wait one Vana’diel day before accepting another.

Seasonal Stalls
As in past years, specially decorated shops dealing in Harvest Festival wares will be open for business in the areas listed below. Speak to the moogle shopkeepers while outfitted with an item obtained from the Wake of the Lilies event, and you just might be in for a special treat!

Northern San d’Oria (D-8)
Port Bastok (L-8)
Windurst Waters (G-10)
