FFXIV Heavensturn 2022 Guide: How to Get Free Rewards
The Heavensturn 2022 event is finally here in Final Fantasy XIV, giving players the chance to celebrate the New Year with free rewards. While the decorations for Heavensturn have been in place since New Years Eve in the game, the actual event has been moved to Wednesday, January 5 due to the short delay for Endwalker’s release. Like most seasonal FFXIV events, you’ll only have to complete a short questline to get your free rewards. This year, two helmets and a piece of furniture are up for grabs. Here’s everything you need to know about Heavensturn 2022 in Final Fantasy XIV.
How to start the Heavensturn 2022 quest in FFXIV
To start the Heavensturn 2022 event, head to the upper decks of Limsa Lominsa and talk to Tora Bugyo (X: 11.5, Y: 13.9). The quest you need to take up is called Tangle with a Tora, and you need to be at least level 15 to start it. To quickly access the quest, simply teleport to the Aethernet shard of Aftcastle. From there, the quest is only a few steps south.
If the event looks like last year’s Heavensturn, then you’ll need to complete a FATE as part of the quest. This FATE can then be repeated to earn Heavensturn Tickets, which can be redeemed at a vendor in Limsa Lominsa for Heavensturn Rewards. Headphones last year were priced at 5 Heavensturn tickets each and the cabinet required 3 Heavensturn tickets, so expect similar exchange rates this year.
FATE is generally incredibly easy, and as many players will scramble to get their Heavensturn Tickets once the event begins, there should be no shortage of allies to help you complete it. He should also spawn quite often, so you shouldn’t have a problem farming Heavensturn Tickets to get all the rewards.
How long will Heavensturn 2022 last?
Heavensturn 2022 will run for two weeks once it starts, with the kick-off given Wednesday January 5, 2022 12:00 AM PST at Wednesday, January 19, 2022 6:59 AM PST. Make sure you complete the quests and get the free rewards before the event ends, as the items will no longer be obtainable for free after the event ends.
That being said, this year’s rewards will likely end up in the Final Fantasy XIV online store for real money next year, so you can technically still get them after the event. Speaking of real money items, the previous Heavensturn rewards are now available on the Final Fantasy XIV online store, so you can pay to collect any items you might have missed last year.
After celebrating the New Year by completing this year’s Heavensturn Quests, there is still a lot to do in Final Fantasy XIV. Patch 6.05 was released alongside the event, adding the Savage version of the Pandaemonium: Asphodelos raid and more. There are also things to catch up that you may have missed since the initial 6.0 launch, like getting your Level Checker mount or getting started with Hunts.
Final Fantasy XIV is now available on PC, PS4 and PS5.
