I love the Rising and look forward to it each year. I was especially delighted to see a personal message about housing and what joy it brings members of the team who help develop the items. Pro tip on the token mini quests: Don't skip the cut scenes...they're sweet and adorable!
The minion one especially gave me the feels since I've always considered them a part of my 'party' as I run through this game as the world's most reclusive popoto.
Thank you to whoever made the wind-up sylph, the most adorable thing in all of Eorzea, and to whoever came up with the idea of the Mammeteer title giving it 'life'.~<3
Indeed! My Wind-up Sylph is also a favorite as is Tinker's Bell. They give good company to some of us introverts :)
