The Wandering Minstrel in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

The Wandering Minstrel (異邦の詩人, Ihō no Shijin?, lit. Foreign Minstrel) is a non-playable character from Final Fantasy XIV. He appears in many side events in the original Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.

The Wandering Minstrel's counterpart on The First is the Minstreling Wanderer.



The Wandering Minstrel dresses in a palette-swapped version of Bard Artifact equipment. His bow is also a palette-swapped version of Bard's Relic Weapon, the Artemis Bow. In A Realm Reborn he no longer wields the bow, but can always be seen carrying a harp.

In Stormblood, he also appears in Kugane, donning a samurai outfit. In Endwalker he appears in Sharlayan dressed as a reaper.
