'Final Fantasy XIV' (ALL) Design Contest Will Add Player-Designed Gear In Game

Final Fantasy XIV, an all new massively-multiplayer role-playing game set in the vast realm of Eorzea, has been rebuilt from the ground up, and centers on the core concept of rebirth, featuring a new world to explore and storyline to experience.

Eorzea, an awe-inspiring land of endless possibilities. Whether you choose to battle fierce creatures in the wilderness, fashion the ultimate blade in the forge, or swap tall tales in the local tavern, the history of Final Fantasy XIV will be shaped by your actions. Choose from an exotic variety of races, looks and classes to fashion your hero. Change classes simply by equipping a different weapon or tool and tackle an ever-changing assortment of level quests alone or with friends.

The age of adventure has begun.

Final Fantasy XIV Online players the world over are being offered the opportunity to see their armor designs implemented in-game with the latest Gear Design Contest. Focusing on melee and ranged physical DPS gear designs, the competition is underway now, and fans have until May 21, 2018 to submit their designs for the chance to see them created by the dev team and added within the realm of Eorzea.

This is the third such design contest held to implement players’ gear designs into Final Fantasy XIV Online. The first was held in July of 2016 and sought designs for tank gear, which were added to the game with the release of the critically-acclaimed Stormblood expansion. The second competition took place in March of 2017 and went on the hunt for the best player-created designs of healer and ranged magic DPS gear. While the healer gear was added as a dungeon reward in Patch 4.1, the ranged magic DPS gear will soon make its debut as a reward in The Swallow’s Compass, the latest dungeon to be added in Patch 4.3.

To enter the latest Gear Design contest and view the rules, please visit The Lodestone.
