    Will the Lightning or Shantotto events ever return?

    Hello,

    I am wondering if the Lightning or Shantotto events will ever return to Eorzea. Or, will the rewards or content become available through the Mog Station? I figure there's quite a bunch of people who aren't crazy about/interested in Lightning, or the XIII series anymore. I enjoyed them, but that is not the point. Rather, I began playing XIV far after the Lightning event was long gone, and was busy doing the Spriggan event in XI while Shantotto was in Eorzea. As a completionist of the Final Fantasy series, and in MMOs in general, being able to experience these would be greatly appreciated. I'd like to see the events, but settling for the rewards in the cash shop wouldn't be all that bad. To have them never return sounds wasteful and noninclusive. Perhaps there are other events I am missing, but these two stand out. The XI team is quite good at reoccurring events, so hopefully that outlook is here in XIV as well.

    I would like to see these too. (since I also started actually playing way after the Lightning event ended and I'm curious to see the XI crossover event too)

    My friend recruitment codes (I put it here because in the thread it just gets out dated quickly by new posts):
    My code(1): HVTRTX6P (Unused)
    My code(2): RAJHW2J3 (Unused, but could be invalid at this point)

    I woul prefer they just sell them. Same rules for one time seasonal items.
    I really don't want to see my least liked ff protagonist prancing around this world for the umpteenth time.

    It's possible, but doubtful. The FFXIII and FFXI crossover events (along with the Dragon Quest crossover event that also took place around the same time) were actually to celebrate milestones or anniversaries in their respective games (the FFXI event was to coincide with the eleventh anniversary of FFXI service, and the FFXIII event was cross marketing connected with the original Japanese and US/European releases of Lightning Returns - the DQ event was similarly to celebrate Dragon Quest Online's first anniversary of service. As these milestones have long since passed, it's highly unlikely SE will bring them back again.

    But then, I said the same thing about that we'd probably never see a FFVII Remake in our lifetimes so... stranger things have happened.

    People ask about this a lot. I find that every single time it's because they want the loot, not the event.

    So cash shop it, make a few bucks off of it, and stop resurrecting the shambling corpse of Lightning's awful game series.

    FFXIII should be thrown into their box of shame and no one should ever look back on it. Throw the items in the mogstation for 99cents a piece or something.

    I liked the quests, don't like them then if they bring them back (which i don't see happening sadly) don't do them, but don't try to keep people who want to experience them from doing so just because you don't like them. The Lightning event had a sweet ending, i was sad to see her go.

    That being said I do hope the hairstyles become available some day, toss them in as gold saucer prizes~ and a Lightning minion.

    I think its most likely the event reward will show up in the Moogle Shop then the event returning. Only time I can see Lightning event return is when the XIII-3 is being released on steam.
