Steps

Journal

  • Claribel wishes to see you and your partner eternally bonded before the eyes of gods and men.
    • ※For details regarding the Ceremony of Eternal Bonding optional service, please check the Lodestone.
  • Claribel, the ceremony planner, would like nothing more than to see you and your partner host a Ceremony of Eternal Bonding at the Sanctum of the Twelve. However, there are a number of preparations which must be seen to before you can make formal arrangements. First, you must speak with the ceremony outfitter and collect your complimentary garments.
    • ※This objective may be completed without your partner.
  • After furnishing you with your garments, the ceremony outfitter advises you to return to Claribel─though not before encouraging you to /embrace your beloved during the ceremony. Speak with the ceremony planner to continue with your preparations.
    • ※This objective may be completed without your partner.
  • In accordance with tradition, you and your partner must prepare symbols of your undying devotion─the blessed rings you will exchange during the ceremony. Using whatever means you deem appropriate, obtain a flawless band suitable for this purpose and present it Jemime at the Goldsmiths' Guild in Ul'dah.
    • ※This objective may be completed without your partner.
  • The master goldsmiths of the guild engrave the band with the runes of the Twelve so that it may receive their divine blessings. Return to the Sanctum of the Twelve and present the ring to Claribel for her inspection.
    • ※This objective may be completed without your partner.
  • Claribel regales you with an ancient tale of two souls who wandered Eorzea in search of answers from the Twelve, from which the next tradition you and your partner must observe originates. To wit, you and your partner must embark upon a pilgrimage to the marks of the Twelve, where together you must /pray to receive their blessings. Begin by retracing the steps of the original pilgrims and /pray at the marks of the Matron, the Builder, and the Keeper in the Twelveswood.
    • ※To complete this objective, you and your partner must have completed all previous objectives. Moreover, you must form a party of two with your partner, you must both equip yourselves with promise wristlets, and your partner must be present when you /pray.
  • You visit all three marks in the Twelveswood, praying to each as instructed by Claribel. You must now proceed to La Noscea and /pray at the marks of the Navigator, the Spinner, and the Wanderer.
    • ※To complete this objective, you and your partner must have completed all previous objectives. Moreover, you must form a party of two with your partner, you must both equip yourselves with promise wristlets, and your partner must be present when you /pray.
  • Having completed the La Noscean leg of your pilgrimage, journey to Thanalan and /pray at the marks of the Dusk Trader, the Destroyer, and the Warden.
    • ※To complete this objective, you and your partner must have completed all previous objectives. Moreover, you must form a party of two with your partner, you must both equip yourselves with promise wristlets, and your partner must be present when you /pray.
  • Only three more marks remain. Proceed to Coerthas and /pray at the marks of the Fury and the Lover.
    • ※To complete this objective, you and your partner must have completed all previous objectives. Moreover, you must form a party of two with your partner, you must both equip yourselves with promise wristlets, and your partner must be present when you /pray.
  • Far though you have come, your pilgrimage is not yet finished. Travel to Mor Dhona and /pray at the mark of the Scholar.
    • ※To complete this objective, you and your partner must have completed all previous objectives. Moreover, you must form a party of two with your partner, you must both equip yourselves with promise wristlets, and your partner must be present when you /pray.
  • Perhaps it is but a trick of the light, but the band you prepared for your beloved now seems to sparkle with a newfound radiance. Return to Claribel and present the ring to her for inspection.
    • ※This objective may be completed without your partner.
  • Claribel shares with you the conclusion of the ancient tale, in which the two souls discover that the salvation they sought was to be found in the eternal bond they had forged with one another. She then takes your rings into safekeeping until the day of the ceremony and instructs you to speak with Raitmeaux inside the Ivory Chapel, who will help you to prepare a ceremony plan.
    • ※This objective may be completed without your partner.
  • You and your partner have now completed all mandatory requirements, and you may now plan, schedule, and host your Ceremony of Eternal Bonding.
    • ※To change your ceremony plan, you may speak with Raitmeaux inside the Ivory Chapel at any time prior to your ceremony.
    • ※To make a reservation for your ceremony, speak with Etoinelle outside the Ivory Chapel.
    • ※To make a reservation for your ceremony, you and your partner must have completed all previous objectives. Moreover, you must form a party of two with your partner, and you must both equip yourselves with promise wristlets.
    • ※Registration opens each Friday at :00 p.m. for ceremonies to be held during the week-long period beginning the next Friday at :00 p.m. Please note that registration opens at different times depending on the service plan (platinum, gold, or standard) as denoted by your wristlet. For further details, please check the Lodestone.
    • ※Upon making a reservation, you will receive a blank invitation, which you may use to create invitations which may be given to friends in the same manner as an ordinary item.
    • ※During the ceremony, you and your partner will receive eternity rings in exchange for your promise wristlets. On the day, please ensure that you have your blank invitation, your wristlet, and one free slot in your inventory.
    • ※Within 20 minutes (Earth time) of doors opening, you and your partner must finalize your ceremony plans, after which the guests will be ushered to the ceremony hall. The ceremony will automatically commence 20 minutes (Earth time) from this point. Please be advised that failure to finalize ceremony plans will result in the ceremony's cancellation.
  • In a glorious day that shall ever be remembered, the gods themselves bless the union between you and your beloved. Now that the ceremony has been concluded, thank Claribel for her assistance.
    • ※This objective may be completed without your partner.
  • Eyes brimming with emotion, the ceremony planner congratulates you on your newly forged bond. Reminding you that this is just the beginning of a far greater journey, she states that, come what may, she has faith that you and your beloved will ever walk together in the light of the Crystal.
