It’s the start of a new year, with Final Fantasy XIV celebrating this occasion with some fortune telling, and a fancy set of armor. In our Final Fantasy XIV Heavensturn 2023 Event Guide, we’ll show you how to start the event, and why you’ll want to check it out as soon as possible.

Final Fantasy XIV Heavensturn 2023 Quest - Box of Fortune

The first part of this year’s event can be started in Limsa Lominsa’s Upper Decks. There, you’ll find the NPC Usagi Bugyo at X:11.5, Y: 13.9 — he’s wearing the set of armor that you’ll get upon completing this questline. This starts the quest “Box of Fortune”, with the only requirement being that you’re using a battle class or job that is level 15 or higher. Usagi Bugyo will send you over to the Far Eastern Omikujishi nearby, who’ll task you with telling people about the wonders of far eastern fortune telling. There are four NPCs to talk with in total, all hanging around in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks:

  • Rhoswen X:12.9, Y: 13.8
  • Trachraet X: 12.7, Y: 12.8
  • Beaudefoin X: 11, Y: 11.2
  • I’tolwann X: 11.5, Y: 10.9

Afterwards, you can head back to the Far Eastern Omikujishi to complete the quest. He’ll give you the option to read your fortune, which you can choose to decline if you desire. Either way, you’ll be able to draw more fortunes after completing the following quest.

Talking to the  Far Eastern Omikujishi again will start the quest “With Great Fortune Comes Great Responsibility”. To start with, you’ll be tasked with cheering up Beaudefoin, who is sitting on the ground nearby. To do this, you must first use the /rally emote, then /psych. This can be done by typing each into the chat box, or via the social, emotes, general menu.

Afterwards, head south out of Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks into Lower La Noscea. Beaudefoin will be a short distance away at X: 24.3, Y: 24.8. Talk to him, then head back to the Far Eastern Omikujishi in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks to complete Heavensturn 2023.

Final Fantasy XIV Heavensturn 2023 Rewards

Completing “With Great Fortune Comes Great Responsibility” will directly give you the Heavensturn armor set, which is made up of body, hand, leg, and feet gear. All pieces can be dyed too.

Heading to the Usagi Shonin Festival Supplier NPC in Limsa Lominsa Upper Decks at  X: 11.4, Y: 13.6 will also allow you to buy a handful of other items. The only other new item for this year’s event is the Heavensturn Crane Banner, a housing item costing 6000 gil. The NPC also sells Zoni, a cheap food item, and Advent Cake Magicked Prisms.
