      Moonfire Faire – Bombard Backlash (07/30/2012)

      FINAL FANTASY XIV, The Lodestone



      Connecting all lands and peoples in her everlasting embrace, the sea bears to Limsa Lominsa the wisdom and voices of a thousand shores.

      In today’s extra edition, The Harbor Herald investigates the rekindling of fiery nightmares once thought extinguished.


      Risen from the Ashes?

      Perhaps you remember, gentle reader, the façade that was the Moonfire Faire? This festival was fabricated for the purpose of drafting gullible adventurers into the ranks of an emergency Bombard-banishing squad. The explosive intruders appeared the very same night that meteors fell to earth across Eorzea, and it was only the intervention of said adventurers that protected our cities from indiscriminate incineration. Such a positive outcome is also the only reason the festival was not more widely condemned for its underhanded recruitment practices.

      And now it appears that the Moonfire Faire will soon be upon us once more. I have heard an increasing number of tales that speak of Bombards rising in all their smoldering horror from nothing but ashes—ashes that escaped the bleary gaze of faire workers during the aftermath of the previous invasion. According to reputed scholars, an extraordinary surge in the strength of elemental fire is again responsible for the disruption to the aether’s natural balance. In the end, however, the cause matters little. What concerns us now are the massive incendiary invaders poised just beyond our walls.


      Traditional Dress the Key?

      But now that the innocent mask of the Moonfire Faire has been stripped away, who in full possession of their mental faculties would willingly volunteer for Bombard battle duty? I would fault none for such despairing thoughts, but the Adventurers’ Guild was ever an organization with a card or three hidden up its collective sleeve. It appears the resourceful members of the guild have obtained a shipment of rare garments from the mystic East, and intend to hand them out to any soul brave enough to stand on the front lines of our defenses. Thus do they appeal to an adventurer’s unquenchable lust for the exotic, as well as the inherent good nature of our would-be saviors.

      This year, I urge you to embrace the faire. Everywhere I turn, I see fear and uncertainty etched on the faces of ordinary folk as the Garlean Empire marshals its forces to overwhelm Eorzea. A dose of Moonfire frivolity mixed with a dash of monster-mashing madness may be just the elixir we need to uplift our floundering spirits.

      Pro-tip:

      -Macro /firedance
      -You only need to get "You do the dance for the Bombard/Bombard King" once to get credit
      -Each "round" lasts about 10-15 minutes
      -Each "round" nets you a maximum of 20 bombard ash. ** I've personally landed at least 2 dances per round - I have not tried just 1 dance to see if that will serve you the 20 ash, but I heard people getting as low as 5 ash in a round, taken with a grain of salt **

      -Yukata (Red) *free when you speak with NPC*
      -Yukata (Blue) 30 Bombard Ash
      -Yukata (Black) 50 Bombard Ash
      -Knickers (Black) *free when you speak with NPC*
      -Knickers (White) 30 Bombard Ash
      -Knickers (Gold) 50 Bombard Ash
      -Clogs 5 Bombard Ash

      If you want to display without mainhand showing, command is /display mh off (or on if you want to display this again) /display head off if you want to do that as well.

      Took me an hour or so to get the full achievement. I highly recommend to NOT do this with too little people ... especially when Bombard Kings just literally spawn on top of the camp ... not sure if you can actually *fail* this. Obviously, you don't want to do this when it's too crowded (not only your chances of having your dance land on a Bombard/Bombard King will decrease, but because it gets laggy and you may not see them in time)

      Takes just 1 dance to kill the Bombard and a total of 3 dances to kill the King.
