Nothing says Season’s Greetings like Final Fantasy XIV’s Starlight Festival!
If this is your first one, you might not know exactly who to talk to or what to do, but no worries. Keep reading to find out so you don’t miss out on this year’s rewards!
Before you start, make sure you are at least level 15 on one combat role, as that is the minimum level to start this quest chain. Also, before you continue, please note that this article contains spoilers for the Starlight Celebration questline.
This year’s quest pick-up is in New Gridania. From the Aetheryte Plaza, access the ethernet and teleport to Mih Khetto’s Amphitheater. From there, walk across to the Amphitheater where Amh Garanjy will be standing on the stage (X 10.2, Y 9.4).
Upon speaking with her, you will receive the quest A Very Yeti Starlight. Amh Garanjy is busy getting festivities in order and she has a special task for you! You have to help Rudy make this the best Starlight Festival ever! You will then be accompanied by Rudy the tiny Yeti and a talking squirrel named Rissai who wants to help you on your quest. They will then lead you to the Carline Canopy, which is just a few steps away from the New Gridania Aetheryte Plaza.
You’ll find Rissai next to Mother Miounne, whom you will have to help gather some ingredients for some Starlight treats. Head back toward Mih Khetto’s Amphitheater to find Rudy at The Whistling Miller (X 9.4, Y 7.8). The clerk will send Rudy off with some ingredients for Mother Miounne. Follow Rudy to the Botanist’s Guild (X 6.5, Y 8.2), who will then talk to Sandre about getting some frying oil.
With all the ingredients gathered for Mother Miounne, head back to the Carline Canopy to speak with Rudy again. After your cut scenes, you’ll go back to Amh Garanjy to share your great news! Speak with her again to pick up the next quest in the chain, Time to Shine. Head over to Bentbranch Meadows, where the snowball cakes and other goodies are set to be delivered. Speak with celebrant Baenfaeld (X 22.2, Y 21.8, Z 0.3) to start helping hand out gifts to the children.
Follow Rudy around Bentbranch as he hands out gifts. Once he’s done, head back to Baenfaeld where you will be faced with a small commotion with some Yetis. They happen to be Rudy’s siblings and want him to return home. After that crisis is averted with Rudy safely back in his family’s care, travel to Mih Khetto’s Amphitheater to let Amh Garanjy know what happened. Through teary eyes, she thanks you for your help and rewards you with two minions to commemorate your time with your new friends.
The Starlight Festival will take place from December 16th, through December 31st, so don’t miss out!
