AKA: The Embarrass Zeb Post. 🙂
So, this year’s Moonfire Faire hit the servers yesterday, and after much Battered Fish cooking, I finished the quest and earned the rewards on my main. As seen above, this year’s outfit is a dyable version of the gear set from Shisui of the Violet Tides.
Now, I was never as impressed by this set as some people seemed to be. Apparently, based on the dev blog, people have been requesting a dyeable version of this, so who am I to damper the fun?
I noticed that they took the basis of the fun dart gun mechanics from Stormblood and adopted it to this event, too. I’m sure the team got good feedback on the dart gun mechanic, and I had a lot of fun with that, too. It’s interesting to see it repurposed for something so… different… though.
Anyhow, it motivated Syn to craft a little bit Battered Fish on Zeb, so that’s a win (even though she complained how boring it was). And yet another embarrassing picture…
The quest itself is short and pretty silly, but I guess the team is still shaking off the release of the expansion and trying to catch their breath. Though I’m not a huge fan of the outfit, I know that I’m going to run my alts through the event to collect it, like I always do. Considering how lax I’ve been on logging into FFXIV lately, that’s probably a good thing.
