Final Fantasy XIV Online has announced a new Gear Design Contest, the third after 2016's Tank Gear competition and 2017's DPS gear event. This time you'll be designing your own melee gear, and if you're fortunate enough, you just may see it realized in the game!
All the details are in Square's press release below.
LOS ANGELES (April 23, 2018) – FINAL FANTASY® XIV Online players the world over are being offered the opportunity to see their armor designs implemented in-game with the latest Gear Design Contest. Focusing on melee and ranged physical DPS gear designs, the competition is underway now, and fans have until May 21, 2018 to submit their designs for the chance to see them created by the dev team and added within the realm of Eorzea®.
This is the third such design contest held to implement players’ gear designs into FINAL FANTASY XIV Online. The first was held in July of 2016 and sought designs for tank gear, which were added to the game with the release of the critically-acclaimed Stormblood® expansion. The second competition took place in March of 2017 and went on the hunt for the best player-created designs of healer and ranged magic DPS gear. While the healer gear was added as a dungeon reward in Patch 4.1, the ranged magic DPS gear will soon make its debut as a reward in The Swallow’s Compass, the latest dungeon to be added in Patch 4.3.
