This year’s festival begins in Limsa Lominsa’s Upper Decks with the NPC Mayaru Moyaru (11.5, 13.8). It’s a bit odd that the glamour rewards for this festival are dyeable dungeon gear. But that set was really popular so now all jobs can look so seductively stylish! Items include a dyeable version of the Shisui Monk/Samurai Chest, Legs and Feet, a Snow Cone furnishing, A painting featuring the artwork from the 2014 Moonfire Faire, and and the Hyper Rainbow Z Orchestrion Scroll.
This lore drop takes the minor character M’naago and follows her on her journey to search for and acquire the assistance from the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. It’s a pretty interesting read that provides brief glimpses on M’naago’s impressions just before and well into the story of Stormblood. There are three more lore drops scheduled for each friday of August, so if you enjoy this chapter you have more to look forward to!
