If you’re a Final Fantasy XIV only player, you may not have known this, but there are plenty of gear pieces in the game that are inspired by the Tactics Ogre game. As a celebration of the Tactics Ogre Reborn release on Friday, November 11th, 2022, FFXIV is having a screenshot sweepstake where you’ll get to submit the picture of your own Warrior of Light wearing Tactics Ogre gear found in FFXIV. The entry period is from November 1st until the 14th at 3:59PM GMT, or 6:59AM PST. In this guide, I’m going over everything you need to know about this contest, so if you’d like to win some cool prizes, you’re in the right place!
In order to participate, you’ll need to submit and Tweet a screenshot of your character wearing either the Valerian or Xenobian body pieces which were recently made dyeable in Patch 6.28. From all the eligible submissions, 11 random winners per region will be selected to receive a Glass Pumpkin (Tactics Ogre Reborn Edition), and 1,111 random winners per region will receive in-game items, such as the Great Paraserpent.

Entering the contest is pretty easy. After reading and agreeing to the terms and conditions, all you need to do is log into and complete the online form. Upon submission, you are required to link a Twitter account, so make sure to have that ready. After linking a Twitter account, you can create a Tweet, which automatically includes the required information for you to enter the sweepstake, at the same time as your entry. The entry will be complete when the Tweet is published. Be sure to pay attention to the additional rules as well – you will not be eligible for the sweepstakes if you only post on Twitter without using the online form. Entries from users of suspended Final Fantasy XIV accounts will not be counted, so please don’t get banned in the meantime. Also, Tweets should be set to “public” for the Twitter account linked to the submission. Finally, do not delete the Tweet made at the time of entry before Saturday, 31 December 2022!
The entry form will require you to fill out some information, including Character name, Home World Name, the URL to your “Character Profile” on Lodestone, and Name of the Desired Prize (Prize A or Prize B), an optional brief comment, and one screenshot of your character wearing one of the “Valerian” or “Xenobian” body equipment

Equipment not listed above can also be worn provided that it features the same appearance, should you own it. If you’re taking a screenshot of your Warrior of Light in gpose, make sure to include Character Name and Display Home World stickers in Group Pose mode.
There are two different prizes you can win. Prize A, which will go to 11 winners each from Japan, North America, and Europe, is a physical prize, and it’s a Glass Pumpkin (Tactics Ogre Reborn Edition). Winners will be notified on or about 8 January 2023 via the email address registered to the Square Enix account. Physical prizes will not be reshipped under any circumstances (such as being lost or damaged), so you’ll need a bit of RNG as well to make sure it goes through smoothly. If your Square Enix account region is Japan, the prize delivery will be restricted to an address in Japan. Physical prizes will be delivered to the address registered to the Square Enix account, so make sure the address registered is current. If the address is invalid, the prize will be voided. You may submit multiple Entries during the Entry Period; however, only one Entry will be accepted per character, and you will only be eligible for one prize per character regardless of how many Entries you submit.
Prize B will be given to 1,111 winners each from Japan, North America, and Europe, and it’ll be an in-game item prize – the Great Paraserpent and Wrapped Present. Winners will be notified on or about 8 January 2023 in-game via the moogle delivery service to the character specified in the entry submission, so make sure the character name and the Home World name are correct, as prizes cannot be delivered if the name or World information are incorrect. Make sure your moogle letter box is not full and is able to receive mail, as the item will not be delivered if your moogle letter box is full, or the number of attachments has reached the maximum allowed. You may submit multiple Entries during the Entry Period; however, only one Entry will be accepted per character. You will only be eligible for one prize per character regardless of how many Entries you submit. By using the in-game item Wrapped Present, you will receive a random consumable item. Random drawing will take place based on the registered region of the Square Enix Account. When it comes to eligible territories, this promotion is open only to players who are legal residents and physically and permanently located in one of the following countries/territories at the date and time of entry:
For Prize A and Prize B, you can apply if you’re in the fifty states of the United States of America, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, Canada (including Quebec), The United Kingdom (excluding the British Overseas Territories), France (excluding Overseas France), Spain, Austria, Norway, Finland and Sweden, as well Australia.
If you’re not on this list, you qualify only for prize B, which is the in-game item, but your country of residence must be one of the countries listed below. Also, you must be 18 or older to participate at all.
