The Masked Carnivale is a single-player activity from Final Fantasy XIV focused on the Blue Mage limited job, added with Patch 4.5. It is located in Ul'dah, and it's unlocked after completing the level 50 job quest "The Real Folk Blues".
Its function is similar to the colosseums from previous games, in which the player can enter to fight in challenges. Unlike the main content of the game, the enemies at the Masked Carnivale have resistances and weaknesses to certain skills or elements, requiring a strategic preparation for the player to avoid their attacks and defeat them.
Currently there are 30 stages at the Masked Carnivale, though only the 25th ("Dirty Rotten Azulmagia") and the 30th ("The Catch of the Siegfried") are required to complete the Blue Mage's final job quests.
- The Masked Carnivale's HUD is similar to the ones from classic Final Fantasy games, showing a blue notification infobox with white text.
