Event Schedule

The Starlight Celebration will commence at 4:00pm on Wednesday, December 15, 2010 (PST) and come to a close at 7:00am on Friday, December 31, 2010 (PST).

New Year, Old Rivalry: Moogles vs. Goblins!

The moogles have cleverly hidden seven types of Tenshodo trading cards across the land and challenged the Goblins to find them. But the cunning Goblins, determined to come out on top in the contest, have taken to riding chocobos, and that simply isn't fair, kupo!

During the Starlight Celebration, "Goblin Rider" NPCs will be seen roaming the following areas:
West Ronfaure / La Theine Plateau / Jugner Forest / Batallia Downs / South Gustaberg / Konschtat Highlands / Pashhow Marshlands / Rolanberry Fields / East Sarutabaruta / Tahrongi Canyon / Meriphataud Mountains / Sauromugue Champaign

These Goblins are on the hunt for patches of "overturned soil," places where the moogles have hidden the cards. Your task is simple: find the cards before the cheating Goblins do, kupo! Once you have a full set of cards, trade them all to an event moogle posted at one of the locations below to receive your reward!

Southern San d'Oria (K-9) / Northern San d'Oria (D-8)
Bastok Markets (G-8) / Bastok Mines (I-9)
Windurst Waters (north side) (F-5) / Windurst Woods (K-10)

Examining a spot of overturned soil as a party will increase the amount of cards found by a corresponding amount, so gather as many friends as possible and get searching!

Master the Art of Turning Frowns Upside Down!

For the duration of the Starlight Celebration, the participation fee will be waived for the Smilebringer Boot Camp, and adventurers who prove their grit and gaiety will be presented with unique seasonal items. To learn all the details, simply talk to a friendly neighborhood smile sergeant posted at one of the locations below. The training will be available in three difficulty levels—beginner, intermediate, and advanced—with each offering different rewards.
