In the most important news you will read all day, Square Enix has announced it will add Modern Aesthetics – Rainmaker back into Final Fantasy 14 in patch 5.5, Death Unto Dawn. That makes version 5.5 the best patch ever.
Just kidding, I actually don’t even like the hairstyle (sorry), but thankfully for the distraught Eorzeans who have been begging to see this look return, you finally will. We first saw the spiky updo back in 2017, during the Make It Rain Campaign in the Golden Saucer. It’s been a thousand years since then (four), and we still never saw it again. Typically, Square Enix will add seasonal event rewards to the Mog Station a year or so later, but the Rainmaker hairstyle never showed up.
It what looks like a comically big announcement, the Final Fantasy 14 official Twitter account posted that Modern Aesthetics – Rainmaker will return next week on April 13 with the next patch. You’ll be able to snag the style from the Golden Saucer again, but this time it’s an exchangeable prize like other goodies from the casino. Hopefully, that means it’ll never go away again.
If you just do a quick Google search of “Modern Aesthetics – Rainmaker” you’ll find a sea of forum and social media posts of people begging Square Enix to bring it back. There’s speculation on if, why, and when the hairstyle return, so everyone just kind of looks like the Always Sunny meme with strings and an evidence board trying to figure out what the deal is. The Final Fantasy 14 community is a gift, don’t let anyone tell you any different.
The hairstyle can be spotted on NPC characters, forever torturing those of you who didn’t have a chance to nab it. Go ahead and make sure you have enough Manderville Gold Saucer Points (MGP) saved up, just in case it costs you a hefty chunk. We don’t know the official cost just yet, but most hairstyles cost anywhere from 8,000 to 50,000 MGP.
Nothing quite beats this announcement, but Final Fantasy 14 will see its next expansion, Endwalker, arrive this fall. You can check out our summary of everything you can expect from 6.0 now.
