This is the third such design contest held to implement players’ gear designs into FINAL FANTASY XIV Online. The first was held in July 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 2017 and went on the hunt for the best player-created designs when it came to Healers and Ranged Magic DPS. While the Healer gear was added as a dungeon reward in Patch 4.1, the Ranged Magic DPS gear will make its debut as a reward in The Swallow’s Compass, the latest dungeon to be added in Patch 4.3.
