Amidst the new announcements of Seekers of Adoulin that pervaded this year's VanaFest, a new special battlefield event was prominently displayed prior to the Development Panels, the Heroines' Holdfast. This new, Nyzul-esque, system will allow a team of adventurers to face some of the most famous feminine faces in Vana'Diel, from Lion to Lilisette, in battle! This battlefield will be available to players who obtain the special Athena Orb, but as both a teaser and a chance to strategize for future attempts, a special week long event will run on the Test Server to give players a hands-on first feel for the fights.
From July 20th through the 27th, the Community Team will be offering battlefield entry orbs to players on the Test Server to test their mettle against these memorable heroines. Don't miss your chance!
Let us know your opinion of the Heroines' Holdfast battlefield and the upcoming Test Server event over on the ZAM forums!
Ever wanted to battle it out with FINAL FANTASY XI's most beloved heroines? Lion, Prishe, Lillisette, Aphmau and another surprise heroine await you within the "Heroines' Holdfast"! Come join the Community Team on the Test Server on July 20th and 27th at 6pm (PDT) where we'll be handing out battlefield entry orbs to the event everyone's been talking about!
This is a great chance to try out the event that was showcased at VanaFest 2012 before we start handing out orbs to the Golden Gobbiebag Giveaway winners! The play event will also be a great way to start fueling your strategy juices ahead of time, so that way when it comes time to enter with your friends and challenge the real thing, you'll already be a master of the Holdfast!
