To participate in FFXIV's The Rising event, you'll first want to make sure that your character has reached level 15. You'll then want to seek out the Wandering Minstrel, an NPC which can be found in Ul'dah.
Head to the Steps of Nald, at coordinates X:10.2, Y:9.4. Talking to the NPC lets you pick up the quest called "Newfound Journey," which you'll need to complete if you plan on obtaining this year's reward.
Doing so rewards you the Clockwork Solus minion. While a bit leaner than other events, it's a great way of growing your minion collection
In addition, items from previous years will be available at certain vendors, which is especially great if you've only recently started your journey through the MMORPG. You can check out the minion over on the event's special website.
