The Starlight Celebration is Almost Here!

Ah yes, it's that time of the year again where children, and children at heart, whisper their dreams and wishes to the stars--it's time for the Starlight Celebration! The people of Vana'diel are busy trimming up their towns with festive decorations, all to ring in this exciting event.

What's this? Something is going on in the courtyard! Let's see if the Moogles can fill us in...

*The Starlight Celebration will be held from Monday, December 18 to Sunday, December 31.

Master, Master!
The Starlight Celebration is here again, kupo!

The lights! The sweets! The presents!
Just thinking about the fun keeps me awake all night, kupo!

Alright, you got me! I just can't keep a secret away from my favorite adventurer...

As you already know, the Starlight Celebration will begin in a few days. But what you don't know is that we Moogles are in a pickle, kupo. The trees that we had made for this year's festivities have vanished from Windurst! And what's worse, a terrifying treant has suddenly shown up at the Dhalmel Farm and is wreaking havoc on the locals, kupo!

Come to think of it, I haven't heard from my brothers and sisters working in Bastok and San d'Oria. What if there are crazy trees running amok in their towns as well...?

Wait a minute... Treants in the towns...?
Didn't something like this happen a few years ago? There was some kind of freak accident at the Rhinostery in Windurst, right? If this is the same thing, we're in biiig trouble!

Anyway, as long as these freaks of nature are trouncing about our towns, everybody will be too scared to come out and take part in the Starlight Celebration's festivities, kupo! Even the smilebringers have said that they won't pass out their presents until they're sure the children will be safe.

Ah, what to do? What to do!?
The treant won't go away, kupo!

Well, I guess it has come down to this...
My colleagues and I must take up arms to protect the city from fear!
Oh, don't worry. We'll do all the work. But, we sure could use a cheer or two from our humble masters, kupo!

"The Twinkling Treant sheds a solitary tear as it fades into nothingness..."

It almost makes me feel bad...

This is really dumb and totally pointless but so amazing, I love it.

I was the first one to hit up the Windurst spot on Titan and I killed the first one alone, then a few more people came, then we managed to get up to 15 people there in the first 10 minutes of game being back up.

It's so much fun watching the log spam with /cheers.

I am not retarded... and I like the game, but those fireworks are the worst thing for the Events and worst noise in the game, I have not had the Audio on my FF11 since then. Just play my .mp3s in the background. The game finds a way to ***** up 1 part of everything it does.

Neways, I'm looking foward to the new event, hopefully get something worth using *huggles Treat and tricks Staffs* nothing beats warping at lvl 2 job ... except ..something cooler...

Enjoy and GL

warp to sky

couldn't it be possible that these tress, after they're killed by moogles or with our help, could get us that promised warp from the teleport crags to sky?

These festivals are indeed fun and all, but more and more seasoned players aren't really taking part any longer. The Rewards for most of the events just sit and rot in you MH because they are so tottaly useless. Now I know one or 2 of the item's are good. But most just plain suck. I want item's for stats ect. Not Trees for my mh or a Robe that helps me eat cookies. /sigh How about an Xmas haircut quest so I can finally change my hair/colour style. Hasn't grown an inch in 2½years! wtf?

I can thin of one/two really good items. The Dash Sashes. I never was able to obtain one, but +1 or +2 emnity at that lvl is pretty godly (especially for nins). Other than that I cant think of any good items. Just fun things!

I mean how cool is it to have a pitchfork?! And the Coven hat with its mp/hp pluses is cool. BUT A PITCHFORK!!!

When will the far-left treants discontinue their war on the Starlight Celebration? Well, at least we still have Festivus.

Maintenance was originally scheduled the 18th. Not that it's a big deal or anything but you know somebody is going to complain about the delay.

Oh sweet jesus, if there is a god in this world please dont have the gay fireworks. For the love of god. The Fireworks are the most annoying thing in the game.

You mean the fireworks from the Summerfest?

I'm looking forward to what new items we'll get this year. I missed out on the hats last year, and wouldn't mind one for my taru =p Also, I could use some more loot for my Mog House XD Hopefully there will be some more options available besides the trees from the year before.
Not too bad

It was better the first year. The event had a purpose (Earned us outpost warp ability) and it was fun having everyone zerging the trees. This one seems like it might be fun at least.

Must you be so retarded?

If you don't like the events, either don't participate or go play a different game.
