Apparently it's been 9 years since FFXI launched. As a reward they're giving anyone who talks to a specific moogle a special ring which has as a use buff '+100% xp'. This buff lasts either 12 hours or for 9000 experience earned, whichever comes first. This is a pretty silly buff and I gained 15 levels yesterday on my corsair through two uses of the ring. (It has 10 charges total.) I'm thinking of doing the same with red mage tonight at seeing if I can't get close to the 30 required to do the BCNM we've wanted to do for a while.
