Rising Vendor (2023)


Rising Attendant: In looking to the past, we take solace in the present, and think of what the future may hold. That is the very essence of the Rising! This year, we have prepared a spectacular fireworks celebration. It is sure to enthrall everyone in attendance!
What is the Rising?
Rising Attendant: The Rising is a period of remembrance that commemorates those lives that were lost during the great tragedy that was the Calamity. We also pay tribute to the unsung heroes who risked life and limb that others might know a brighter future.
Rising Attendant: And so the streets are decorated with somber trappings, and the night skies filled with vibrant fireworks.
Rising Attendant: The solemn atmosphere and bright lights above may spur others to reflect on the doom portended by Dalamud. By doing so, they might give thanks for the present, and muster hope for a brighter tomorrow.

The Letter Forest

In the quest, the Wandering Minstrel introduces his project, The Letter Forest, which features letters from people giving thanks. At the end of the quest letters in the letter forest can be read by talking to the Letter Forest Tender. The letters read like letters written by people in FFXIV production departments as if they were characters in the game. For a list of letters, see the Letter Forest Tender.
