Square Enix is having a crossover between their three main MMORPGs that brings slimes into Final Fantasy XI’s world Vana’diel and Moogles into Dragon Quest X.
A sage from Dragon Quest X will take a Great Ark visit Final Fantasy XI looking for a lost slime. This will have a Monstrosity event (a feature that lets players control monsters) where you can play as a Blue Slime. You can also get special Slime gear.
Also, Spriggan, a monster from the world of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will suddenly show up in Vana’diel. It seems the Moogles can talk to Spriggans. Just like the Blue Slime, players will be able to control the Final Fantasy XIV monster using a Monstrosity. Players can get Spriggan equipment too.
Meanwhile in Final Fantasy XIV, Shantotto, a powerful Tarutaru black mage from Final Fantasy XI who has her own expansion pack, shows up in Eorzea. Players can fight Shantotto in a FATE (Full Active Time Event) and if you defeat her she can join you as a minion. Minions are basically Final Fantasy XIV’s pets, so it’s kind of weird having an all powerful mage reduced to that.
Another FATE has players fight Golems from Dragon Quest X and if you win you get a tiny Golem minion.
Because Shantotto is all powerful she also shows up in Dragon Quest X. If you help her find materials for black magic you can get a Chocobo hat.
A moogle from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn will give Dragon Quest X players a quest too. Complete this and you can get a Cactaur Mask.
The crossovers being on December 11 with content from FFXIV and DQX meandering into Final Fantasy XI. Two more Final Fantasy XI events are slated for 2014. Dragon Quest X will have the Final Fantasy XI crossover between mid January and mid February. The Dragon Quest X and Final Fantasy XIV crossover (the moogle) will take place afterwards in mid February to mid March. The two crossovers for Final Fantasy XIV will take place in the end of January to early February 2014.
