The Nocturne for Heroes event is finally back in Final Fantasy XIV, and FFXIV players can earn the Regalia car mount and other FFXV cosmetics by completing limited-time event quests. It's the same event that took place around the release of Final Fantasy XV, so there's not much to do if you took part in the event last time around. For all new players coming to the game, this is a great opportunity to get a great free mount and some cool gear. Here's how to get the Regalia car mount, Noctis outfit, and more during the Nocturne of Heroes event in FFXIV.
To start the FFXV event in FFXIV, you must be level 50 and have completed the main scenario quest "The Ultimate Weapon", which is the ending of the A Realm Reborn scenario. If you're a new player still working on A Realm Reborn, you've got some catching up to do. Once you meet these requirements, speak to Kipih Jakkya in Ul'dah at Nald Steps (X:8.5, Y:9.7) and get the quest "The Man in Black".
There are multiple quests for this event, but they all lead to each other. Completing "The Man in Black" will lead to "In the Dark of Night", which will lead to "Messenger of the Winds". Completing these quests will reward you with the Prince Lucian Armor Set, which is the outfit that Noctis wears.
The Regalia Car Mount is the main reason people are excited about this event. To get it, go to the Gold Saucer and talk to the ironworker in the entrance plaza (X:5.3, Y:6.3). There you can purchase various FFXV items using MGP, including the Regalia Mount. In order for the Ironwork Vendor to appear, you must first complete the event questline. Here's everything you can buy during the FFXV event:
- Modern aesthetic: Lucian Locks – 20 000 POP
- Map of the Night's Sky – 10 000 POP
- Titre Regalia Type-G – 200 000 POP
To purchase the Regalia, you need 200 MGP. You can earn this amount easily by participating in the weekly Fashion Report and completing your Gold Saucer challenge diary.
To get the Noctis outfit in FFXIV, you need to complete the Nocturne for Heroes questline. This means talking to Kipih Jakkya in Ul'dah to start the "Man in Black" quest, then completing the quests that follow. Each quest will reward you with part of the outfit, and you'll have the full gear set by the time you complete the final quest.
The outfit won't be complete without Noctis' signature hairstyle, though, and you'll need to visit the Gold Saucer to purchase it. Talk to the Ironworks vendor and you can purchase a copy of Modern Aesthetics: Lucian Locks for 20 MGP to unlock the hairstyle.
Final Fantasy XIV is available now on PC, PS4 and PS5.
