    FINAL FANTASY XIV GRANT A WISH CONTEST

    Have you ever had a wish so pure and innocent only a fairy could grant it? Have you been waiting for this very fairy to fly your way ever since but you were never lucky enough to attract their attention? Fear no more as today your fellow adventurers will show their magical powers - and who knows, they might even grant your dearest wish. But beware, a little devil might be sitting on their shoulders, eagerly whispering into their ears. And what about yourself? Will you make their wishes come true?

    If you don't fear that little fellow's influence, all you need to do to enter is write your dearest wish as well as grant the previous adventurer's one in the Contest Entries Thread. We will then choose the winners based on creativity, fantasy and (appropriate!) humour. For our lucky winners we have great prizes up for grabs, so get your thinking caps on and your magic wands ready!

    Speaking of prizes, this is what you can win:

    FINAL FANTASY XIV in-game "Scarf of Wondrous Wit"
