Final Fantasy Wiki

The Masked Carnivale is a single-player activity in Final Fantasy XIV added in patch 4.5. Located in Ul'dah after completing the quest The Real Folk Blues The Real Folk Blues, it provides a series of challenges for Blue Mage Blue Mages to earn regular rewards.

Its function is similar to the battle arenas from previous games, in which the player can enter to fight in challenges. Enemies of the Masked Carnivale have resistances and weaknesses to certain skills or elements, requiring a strategic preparation for Blue Mages to avoid their attacks and defeat them.

Currently there are 31 stages at the Masked Carnivale, though only three stages ("Dirty Rotten Azulmagia", "The Catch of the Siegfried", and "Anything Gogo's") are required to complete the Blue Mage's final job quests.
