Besides new quests, the event features a number of FFXV-themed rewards that player can earn. These rewards include:

  • The Regalia Mount – A replica of Noctis' amazing car. Regalia is the first four-person mount in the game. Players can choose from one of three seats while in the mount and their pose is dependant on the seat they choose. An extra cool feature of the Regalia is that it changes form as you fly. The Regalia is waterproof, making it capable of traveling underwater as well.
  • Noctis's Hairstyle and Outfit - Players can rock some royal style with this new haircut and all-black outfit.
  • Noctis Lucis Caelum Triple Triad Card - This card can be used in Triple Triad matches across Hydaelyn.
  • Various Orchestrion Rolls - Players can add some great music from FFXV's amazing soundtrack to their collection. The titles are as follows
    • Hammerhead
    • Valse di Fantastica
    • Relax and Reflect
    • Veiled in Black.
    • Apocalypsis Noctis
    • A Quick Pit Stop

Event Requirements

In order to participate in the "A Nocturne for Heroes" event, players must reach Level 50 in the game. For those who haven't quite reached the milestone, there are a couple of ways to get to the goal more quickly. One way is via Tales of Adventure items — you can learn more about those here. Another way is by pre-ordering the upcoming FFXIV: Shadowbringers DLC. With the pre-order, players are granted the experience-boosting aethertye earring, which helps to level up faster. You can learn about the upcoming DLC and place your pre-order here.

Once you reach level 50, you'll need to complete the main scenario quest "The Ultimate Weapon." From there the FFXV crossover event will become available to you.
