If you’ve got some friends who have stepped out of FFXIV for a while, and you could still benefit from collecting those Gold and Silver Chocobo feathers for the mounts, you’re in for a treat. The Callback Campaign is now active, lasting until September the 30th. In this guide, you’ll find out how to participate, what the requirements are, as well as what you and your friends can get as a reward!
In order for someone to be invited for the return to FFXIV, they must have an account that’s been inactive for at least 90 days, and that also includes the free to play period. If you invite a friend who has been active during that time, they won’t receive an email, and you’ll lose one of your invitations that you could’ve sent to someone else. Each character that’s registered to an account can invite up to five friends, and this number will reset after 30 days, so that you can invite another group of friends next time the campaign is up I suppose.
How to invite a friend back into FFXIV?
All you need to do is open your friend list or FC members list and right click if you’re on PC, and do whatever it is that’s equivalent to that on the controller, as I have no clue. You’ll see the option to send an invitation to a friend, and after you do, there will be a chat message letting you know how many invitations you have left on your character.
Once a person is invited, they’ll receive an email with the name of the character who sent the invitation, so your character’s name, as well as the World on which their character is. You can’t actually spam someone as only one email will be sent per day. If a person is invited by multiple people desperate to see them back in Eorzea, the email will list all the names of all the people who invited them. Be sure to actually know if someone meets the requirements for Callback or not, as the game won’t tell you this, and if they’re not, they just won’t get invited.
Keep in mind…
There are some other things to keep in mind. Even if two or more of your friends are invited back into the game, you’ll only receive the rewards once, and rewards that you’ve received for participating in a previous campaign will not be given to you again. If you don’t know how many people you’ve invited to come back, you can find this info when you log into your Mog Station account.
Callback Campaign rewards
If your friend accepts your invitation and gets hooked back into the game strongly enough to make them purchase a subscription 90 days within their comeback to Eorzea, you are in for some good loot. You’ll get 5 Gold Chocobo Feathers for those exclusive Recruit-a-Friend rewards like mounts, rare dyes and Aetheryte Tickets. If you’re the one being invited to return, you’ll get 14 days of free play straight away, starting from the day you log back in, as well as 99 Aetheryte Tickets and 10 Silver Chocobo Feathers to be exchanged for gear sets – specifically, for level 20, 50, 60, 70 and 80 characters. You can exchange your feathers with the Calamity Salvagers in the Upper Decks of Limsa Lominsa, in Old Gridania, or in Ul’dah, Steps of Thal.
That’s all there is to this cool opportunity. If I missed out on mentioning anything, let me know in the comments! If you’re more of a visual person, and you don’t mind getting easy wins in-game, you can check out all of this in my video – and subscribe for more awesome FFXIV stuff!
