Another Holiday, another MMO holiday round-up. This time, we’re celebrating that time of year where love is in the air. That special occasion in which lovers find themselves wrapped up with one another across the galaxies, or in this case the different MMO universes we’ve come to know and love. So whether it be in Eorzea or Azeroth, we’re going to look into just how each of these worlds will be celebrating this especially lovely day.
So apparently I haven’t been giving the Elder Scrolls Online world of Tamriel any real love within my segments lately, and I’m here to correct that. Why today you ask? Simply because Tamriel is made for the lovers of course! It’s easily the MMO world to be in if you were to want to celebrate Valentine’s day with the one you love, whether they be pixelated or not. Don’t believe me? Check out this description from the forums
“Tamriel is for lovers, some say. This especially true on Heart’s Day. Heart’s Day, also known as Lovers’ Day, is a celebration of love that is observed all across Tamriel on the 16th of Sun’s Dawn (February 16.) Whether your love is platonic, familial, or romantic, love can be found just about everywhere in ESO.”
ESO also asks that you share your presentations of love across social media, a way to spread the love even further!
“Have you found love or strengthened your bond with someone special while spending time together in ESO? Share the love – send us your stories, videos, art, or screenshots to celebrate Heart’s Day. Tweet us at TESOnline using hashtag #LoveInESO, reply to this thread, or email us at [email protected] We’ll share our favorite mementos of love in ESO during the week leading up to Heart’s Day.”
Now yes, Nexus doesn’t technically celebrate Valentine’s day, but that doesn’t mean they can’t appreciate the rebirth of life and love. So to celebrate that, they’ve opened a shop to celebrate the special day in Nexus style, featuring a ton of new items that are only available for a limited time.Check out the powerfully love infused luxurious bed set or the specially-bred version of L’il Scratches. “A perfect gift for a friend or loved one to show you care – or keep one for yourself to snuggle up with.”
There’s also “the stomach-churning Strain Snarfelynx. It’s a Valentine’s Day gift guaranteed to make you scream, “WHY?!”
From now until February 17th, you’ll be able to access these special Valentine’s Day store items, so get on them before they’re gone. You can check out the official page and how to access the Valentine’s Day shop HERE.
Blade & Soul
Having recently jumped into Blade & Soul with some of the WTFGamersOnly crew, I was delighted to note that they’d created a Valentine’s Day event. New events bring new rewards that are all designed around the holiday.
The Earthen Realm will feature an event that (for characters level 16 and above) presents characters with “a letter each day (automatically added to the quest log) from a character in the game asking them to visit in Jadestone Village. You’ll need to take on a small task to honor their affection in-town, and then set off to get whatever their little heart desires in the time allotted. Return before they lose interest in you, and you’ll receive 4–5 Red Roses and Love Potion consumable buffs. Players have the ability to buy a bundle of a dozen Red Roses once per day from the Hongmoon Store. Premium Members will receive a 33% discount on the Red Roses bundle.”
The collection of Roses will provide the needed ingredients for “Transmutation’s of Love” including Valentine’s Day based outfits, and the ability to transmute “a powerful new gem, and treasure-laden chest.” Of course, everything here is only for a limited time, so get online and grab your newest items!

Final Fantasy XIV
Another year, another visit from Lisette de Valentione to Eorzea. Final Fantasy XIV has a new set of available items for participating in this years loving events!
Lisette de Valentione has once again ventured forth from Ishgard, this time with a band of fortune-tellers who will divine the romantic potential of Eorzea’s sweethearts. Adventurers curious to know what the future holds are encouraged to seek her out!
This years Valentine’s collectibles includes a new hat, new earrings and new home furniture that all express love in a fashionable manner. Plus a fun little card reading you shouldn’t miss! Head to the seasonal website HERE to be able to find the starting point for the quest and see the quest rewards in detail.
World of Warcraft
The Veteran of MMO’s has found its way to another year of celebration with Love is in the Air, and another chance to get the title “The Love Fool” because why wouldn’t you want it? So, what’s Azeroth doing to allow players to express their love then? Let’s see!
As I’m sure you’re aware, you can grab mounts, pets, consumables, gear and toys as per usual, while also spending your time with your loved ones at picnics, riding love birds, or adorning yourself or others with Forever-Lovely Roses. Also, make sure you pick up the holiday quests to “Defeat the evil Apothecary Hummel and his henchmen, thwart their evil schemes to take the world over, and then celebrate with your loved one(s) in lovely outfits!”
