Final Fantasy 14: Complete events timeline and schedule before Dawntrail’s release

No need to twiddle your thumbs waiting when there's so much to do.

With a new expansion only a couple of months away, Final Fantasy XIV is amping up its prepatch content leading up to the highly anticipated release of Dawntrail and closing out the first half of 2024 with a bang.

The schedule is packed with returning seasonal events right up until maintenance for Dawntrail begins. From the FFXVI collaboration, the Yo-kai Watch crossover, and the ever-popular Moogle Treasure Trove event, there are going to be multiple simultaneous events running throughout May and June you won’t want to miss.

Confirmed during the 80th Letter from the Producer live stream, the complete timeline for Final Fantasy XIV’s prepatch period includes no shortage of events to participate in while waiting for Dawntrail to drop.

Final Fantasy XVI Crossover Event: The Path Infernal

  • April 2 to May 8
  • Features exclusive rewards like Clive Rosfield’s outfit and the Torgal mount. This is the first-ever run of The Path Infernal, so it’s very likely you’ll see it return in a few years.

Yo-kai Watch: Gather one, Gather All!

Moogle Treasure Trove—The Second Hunt For Genesis

  • May 14 to June 24
  • Continuation of the Moogle Treasure Trove event featuring Irregular Tomestones of Genesis. Don’t forget to check your Mogpendium for the new weekly objectives. 

Make It Rain Campaign

  • May 15 to May 31
  • Annual event featuring a 50 percent bonus to all earned MGP, a new seasonal quest, and discounts on certain prizes. If you’re saving up for one of the extremely expensive Gold Saucer Mounts, this is the best time to grind MGP.

Fall Guys Collaboration Event

  • May 23 to June 10
  • Returning collab featuring the extra Fall Guys section and activities in the Gold Saucer, as well as Fall Guys apparel and miscellaneous items that can be purchased with event currency. This one involves special instances with a huge player count—if you’re having trouble with long queue times, check the Party Finder for faster groups.

Dragon Quest X Collaboration Event: Breaking Brick Mountains

  • June 5 to June 20
  • Returning collab featuring a minion and apparel from the Dragon Quest series, including the infamous King Slime Crown. It’s not exactly an immersive Glamour piece, but the jiggle physics are certainly a conversation starter.

48-hour extended maintenance and Early Access

  • June 26 to June 28
  • Extended downtime twice as long as previous pre-expansion maintenance periods, intended to give players more time to download the upgraded assets showcased in the official benchmark. If you preordered Dawntrail and plan to jump straight into early access on June 28, you should make sure to check in a few hours before maintenance ends to queue your download early.
