Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2006!
From:FINAL FANTASY XI
Dec. 31, 2005 07:00 [PST]

Fortuitous Fenrir Happy New Year!

Season's greetings and a happy New Year!

Incidentally, a certain impetuous summoner, looking for a way to accomplish the arduous, onerous task of defeating Maat, called on Fenrir to read his fortune for the New Year. Unfortunately for him, Fenrir refused to listen, and ran outside of town instead!

Won't you lend the poor summoner a hand and help him catch Fenrir if you see him?

Fenrir claims that he just wanted to teach the inconsiderate little summoner a lesson, but apparently the avatar does plan to forgive him.

[Event Details]
This event is scheduled to commence on Dec. 31, 2005 at 07:00, and will last until Jan. 10, 2006 at 0:00 (PST).

Official PlayOnline Announcement



Event Summoners Like the New Year events in previous years, this involves various NPCs running around in outside zones. This time around, with 2006 being the Year of the Dog, we have the Fortutious Fenrir NPC, and three Summoner NPCs. You can trade the Summoner NPCs any item to randomly receive either a short duration buff, or a Rare/EX New Year's Gift item. If you receive the New Year's Gift item, you can use it, and it will be used up and provide you with a Fishing Enhancement buff.

The cities are also decked out with various decorations to celebrate the New Year!
