FFXIV is known for its seasonal events that come back every year. From the Moonfire Faire to The Rising event, there is always something for players to do when they pop back into the world of Eorzea. The Rising event guide is filled with the dates, locations, and rewards for this seasonal event in 2022.

FFXIV: The Rising Event Guide, Date, Location, Rewards.

First off, The Rising will kick off on August 27, 2022, at midnight PDT. It will run until September 12, 2022, at 7:59 a.m PDT. This is roughly two weeks to complete the quest and get your reward. Luckily, the event is pretty simple and won’t take players long, so as long as you set aside time somewhere in these two weeks, you’ll be able to complete the quest and claim your reward.


To begin The Rising event, you’ll need to head to Ul’dah – Steps of Nald and speak to the Wandering Minstrel. You can find him at (X: 10.1 Y:8.4).

You’ll need to be at least level 15 to begin this quest; if you have not hit level 15, time to grind it out (it shouldn’t take long at all).

The name of the quests you need to pick up is titled “Newfound Journey,” and the description reads as follows: “The wandering minstrel has a request for an experienced adventurer.”

For completing this event, you will be given the Clockwork Solus minion. Everyone’s favorite Shadowbringers villain. Look how cute he is with his apathetic smirk and raised hand. He’s just a little lad who will follow you around whether he is happy about it or not.

If you speak to The Rising Vendor in Ul’dah, you’ll be able to pick up previous event rewards from years past. So if you’re missing something, now is the time to grab it.

That’s everything you need to know about The Rising event. It kicks off soon, so get ready. As you wait, though, why don’t you take a look at the new trailer and release date for patch 6.2?
