Square Enix indulges us with four notable pieces of news.
Halloween-like Event "All Saints' Wake"
"From this Friday, October 18th through Friday, November 1st, enjoy All Saints' Wake as the streets of Eorzea are decked with ceremonial lanterns and fanciful costumes can be enjoyed by all. A traveling circus troupe has made its way to the city-states, appearing overnight, as if by magic. Speak to these Shifty Thespians for a special Quest, but never forget that All Saints' Wake is a time for tricks as well as treats."
Free World Transfer Reminder
Looking to change servers/"Worlds"? You're in luck, because the World Transfer Service is free from tomorrow until Monday, October 21st. "Like the name implies, this service allows you to move your character to the World of your choice. So if your friends are playing in a different World, this week is the perfect opportunity to arrange playing in the same World."
