Square Enix has announced that the Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy XI crossover events in Final Fantasy XIV will begin later this week.
From January 21 at 2:00 a.m. PST until February 3 at 6:59 a.m. PST players wil be able to take part in these two events. The first event, Dragon Quest, sees golems invading Eorzea. Players can talk to Hawk Alvak of the Mythril Eye in Ul’dah, Steps of Nald to begin this event, and will receive a Thug’s Mug mask and a wind-up Brick minion for completing it.
“Recent sightings of heretofore unseen varieties of golems have Amajina & Sons Mineral Concern beside itself with excitement. What minerals might be procured from these creatures, and what value might they hold for enterprising miners?”
The second events sees a giant version of Final Fantasy XI’s master magician Shantotto roaming about Eorzea. Players can speak to Khole Bajhiri of The Raven in New Gridania to begin this event, which grants a Wind-up Shantotto upon completion.
“In recent days, phenomena not unlike those that presaged the Calamity have been reported in all corners of Eorzea. As if that weren’t enough, ill rumors speak of a towering shadow-clad figure who leaves this wanton destruction in its wake.”
