Greetings from Eorzea, fellow XBRO’s! As is the case with most MMO titles, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn launches timed events every so often, which generally reward players that complete their objectives with exclusive event-based rewards, titles or outfits. The manly-named Little Ladies’ Day is (ironically) a two-week event celebrating spring time, and I’m here as a fellow noob to lend a helping hand in obtaining your Pretty in Pink achievement, as well as your Wind-up Edvya minion.
That’s right folks, I regret to inform you that I’ve made the plunge in to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn on the PS3, and although I didn’t have the best of times with Final Fantasy XI, I’m actually having a blast leveling my new Arcanist to eventually become a Summoner. I just missed the Lightning event that ended back on February 25th, but today starts Little Ladies’ Day.
STEP 1 – For starters, you have to be at least level 15 on one of your classes and you can pick up the starting quest, All the Little Ladies, around the Aetheryte Stone in each of the three major cities – Ul’dah, Limsa Lominsa & Gridania – from the Royal Seneschal.
- While you’re there, take note of the event vendor. Here you can pick up Peach Blossom, which is an earring with +1 Sleep Resistance. It may not sound like much, but if you’re a scrubling lowbie like I am, you may not even have an earring equipped yet. For 66 Gil, you can’t go wrong. Plus, what manly Elf doesn’t want to wear a pink flower earring, amirite? This vendor also offers food that grants +3% XP gained for 30 minutes, as well Peach Confetti to throw on your friends or the naked guy dancing by the Company Bank. Maybe they’re one and the same?
STEP 2 – If you didn’t pick up All the Little Ladies in Ul’dah, it’s time to make use of your Teleport ability or head over to the local airship landing to make your way there the old fashioned way. You’ll be coming back to Ul’dah a few times, so it’s probably a good idea to set your Home Point at their Aetheryte Stone. Once you’ve arrived in Ul’dah (or perhaps you’re already there twiddling your thumbs), head on over to the Goldsmiths’ Guild and turn your quest in to Serendipity, starting the 2nd leg of the quest with A Peach by Any Other Name.
STEP 3 – For the remainder of the Little Ladies’ Day quests, you’ll need to keep your new minion out or else you’ll have to head back to Serendipity to obtain a replacement. Once you’ve started A Peach by Any Other Name, it’s time to do a bit of traveling again by making your way to Gridania. Your entire goal in Gridania is to find Gossiping Girls, which are indicated by the red circles on your map. By talking to them and giving them your budding blossom (shut up, pervs), you’ll secure their vote for your manly doll at the end of the quest chain. Flower up three Gossiping Girls and make your way back to Ul’dah to tell Serendipity about all of the manly things you’ve been doing, picking up Say It with Peaches to continue on with the event.
STEP 4 – I sure hope you love to travel, because you need to teleport or airship your way to Limsa Lominsa. Check your map for more red circles and make your way to those locations in search of Capricious Maidens. Blast three of them with confetti, show them your muscles and secure their votes before heading on back to Serendipity in Ul’dah. On the bright side, there’s only one more quest to do! Pick up A Real Peach and get ready for more traveling! Just kidding, this one stays in Ul’dah.
STEP 5 – This last quest is a two-parter, but neither of them require leaving Ul’dah. They do, however, require a bit of /dancing, so get your manly self over to those red circles at The Gold Court (near the Coliseum), Sunsilk Tapestries (in the Steps of Nald) & Arrzaneth Ossuary (near the Thaumaturge’s Guild). Target the Festival Gathering icon and /dance to shake what your momma gave ya in each location before heading back to Serendipity. Apparently this wasn’t enough to appease the doll gods, so it’s time to head on out to the same three locations in Ul’dah to pick peach blossom petals for our quest giving friend.
Grab the petals, head on back to Serendipity and finish out your Little Ladies’ Day event quest for your very own Wind-up Edvya minion and Pretty in Pink achievement! Huzzah, we did it! Well, you did it. Congratulations and I’ll see you back here for the next seasonal event in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn!
*I’ve been playing MMO’s for the last 9 or 10 years, but just recently started my venture in to FFXIV:ARR on the PS3. Are any of you currently playing? If so, which class did you choose? I’m starting off as Arcanist and working my way to Summoner since it’s the closest thing to World of Warcraft’s Warlock class, and that’s what I played for the last 8 years.
