Final Fantasy XIV Guide - A Nocturne For Heroes Event

In 2019, Final Fantasy XIV held a collaboration event with Final Fantasy XV. This collab did bring several Quests involving FFXV protagonist, Noctis Lucis Caelum, and rewarded players with a similar attire to his, songs of FFXV OST, and Noctis car, the Regalia Type-G, as an in-game mount. This same event is coming back on September 13, and here’s all you need to know about it once it returns.

Once you’re sure you can do it speak to Kipih Jakkya in the city of Ul'dah, more precisely in the Steps of Nald, to begin the quest “The Man in Black”. Finishing that quest will give you the item “Lucian Prince's Fingerless Glove” and will unlock the next quest, “In the Dark of Night”, which will reward you with the “Lucian Prince's Bottoms” and later “Messenger of the Winds”, which will give you “Lucian Prince's Jacket” and the “Lucian Prince's Boots”, thus completing Noctis’ attire for you to wear.

Completing the event will also give you the achievement “Brother from Another Mothercrystal”
