Final Fantasy 14 Rising Phoenix Mount Revealed
Final Fantasy 14's first shapeshifting mount has finally been revealed, and it's everything we could have hoped for. The Rising 2023 event also introduces the new Kupo Kupo Adventure minigame and a permanent sidequest related to Lousioux.
The Rising Phoenix is the first mount in the game that allows players to shapeshift into a bird, completely removing their character from view. It opens up exciting possibilities in the open-world game, from surprising other players to enjoying the scenic view while soaring across the landscape.
The mount's special action, 'A Flame Reborn,' allows players to blow themselves up, though the exact details are yet to be seen. The Rising 2023 event starts on August 27 and features the new Kupo Kupo Adventure minigame and a permanent sidequest related to Lousioux.
During the event, players can also acquire orchestrion rolls and a wall decoration. The Rising 2023 event will run from August 27 until the release of patch 6.5, expected in October. Patch 6.5 will conclude the current storylines and prepare for the upcoming expansion, Final Fantasy 14: Dawntrail, planned for summer 2024.
