Trick or Treat! Hand out treats to the masked denizens of the city!

People from around the land are walking about dressed as a variety of fearsome monsters, hoping to scare the living daylights out of adventurers like you. By giving these costumed NPCs in the following areas a treat, you will be able to dress up in a costume of your own. And if you are really lucky, you might even obtain a special Halloween-themed item!

♦Costumed NPCs can be found in the following locations:
 Southern San d'Oria / Northern San d'Oria
 Bastok Mines / Bastok Markets
 Windurst Waters / Windurst Woods
 *NPCs will accept most sweets, with certain exceptions that do not appeal to their finicky palates.

Some NPCs taking on the forums of flans prowl the streets of several of the major cities. You might be able to snag some flan-related goodies from them, so stay on the lookout!

♦NPCs disguised as flans can be found in the following areas:
 Northern San d'Oria / Bastok Markets / Windurst Waters


Your Purple-winged Partners

Brave adventurers willing to take up the task of driving off the unholy infiltrators should seek out the moogles stationed in the areas below. Complete the tasks assigned, and you shall be met with great reward!

♦Moogle Locations
 West Ronfaure (I-6) / East Ronfaure (G-6)
 North Gustaberg (L-8) / South Gustaberg (J-7)
 West Sarutabaruta (J-8) / East Sarutabaruta (G-11)


Bomb Decorations and More Fun With Costumes!

Throughout the festivities, players will be able to enjoy the illumination of the now-famous bomb decorations. As in previous Harvest Festivals, one can't help but wonder what might happen if two characters in full costume were to approach these decorations while in the same party...


Wake of the Lilies

The Harvest Festival will again play host to the Wake of the Lilies, with three aspiring exorcists from the West making their annual pilgrimage to the three nations. Would-be shadow-hunters should seek them out at the following locations.

♦Exorcist Locations
 Gertrude in Northern San d'Oria (D-8)
 Brian in Bastok Markets (G-8)

 *After successfully completing an exorcist's request, players must wait till Midnight (Vana'diel time) has passed before accepting another.


Seasonal Stalls

Special Harvest Festival stalls will make an appearance in the following areas, offering all manner of seasonal goodies for sale. Furthermore, decorate your Mog House with three new lanterns available in each nation, and your moogle just might have a surprise for you the next time you speak with him!

  • This special gift may still be obtained after the Harvest Festival has ended, as long as the necessary conditions have been met.
