Yesterday kicked off the next event in Final Fantasy XIV's one year anniversary round up - which sees one of Final Fantasy's most cherished characters - Lightning, visit the world of Eorzia. Similar to the other anniversary events, this is a repeat event as well - it first came around in November of 2013, so technically I suppose it should be called Lightning Re-strikes.. or maybe Lightning Strikes Returns Again.. or.. something. Now as I've mentioned before I'm not terribly well versed in Eorzia lore, but I am a fan of the Final Fantasy series, and was quite familiar with the lore of this character. I wasn't playing FFXIV at the time this event came around the first time, so I was really looking forward to participating in it this time. And let me just say, if you're a fan of franchise crossovers and of seeing your character participate in events side by side with a signature series character - the event does not disappoint!

|Whoah I've switched games!|

If there is any single area in which I think the event misses, it would only be in the level requirements. That is, if you're just planning on jumping back into the game solely to do the event, and you are relatively low level, you may be disappointed. The event is spread out over four fates, and by the time you get to the fourth fate, the level requirement is level 45. I had literally just made 45 myself, so was able to participate in the entire event, thankfully. But just be aware.

I also ran a dungeon last night - Stone Vigil, and I'll talk about that soon. Until then, may your chocobo be forever swift and without lice!
