Greetings, all!

This year we're celebrating a lot of milestones in our Square Enix online titles - the 11th anniversary of FINAL FANTASY XI, the first anniversary of Dragon Quest X in Japan, and the rebirth of XIV with the release of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn!

To celebrate, we'll be hosting a few fun collaborations between the titles. Sneak a peek at what we've got planned!

Shantotto Battle!

Wait what? The story stuff is really really easy. Nothing main story related is difficult at all.

If you rush through this game you will be not prepared for the real game and challenges. It is really frustrating to see people in level 30 gear trying to do Garuda because all they did was fate leveling....

Nice, I'm stoked!

For those who didn't play FFXI, Shantotto was a decently important character from that game. There was an add-on devoted to her and her "dastardly plan" which was... okay I guess? (never finished it myself), but she was a pretty funny character in one of the expansions. Also I just noticed she's holding an earth staff; in FFXI rangers (I think corsairs as well) would typically hold them, and mages would generally have all of the elemental staves (earth, light, darkness, fire, etc.).

Also the crystal tower (TCT) is a 24 man raid and is meant to be content you do before you do coil of bahamut (currently there's a bit of a bottleneck in progression because there's a bit of a gap between coil of bahamut, and what currently precedes coil of bahamut).

Until you find out that YOU'RE actually Shantotto's minion and it's been part of her plan all along :P "Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho"

Neat! That's a good bit of content.

@belegorm also Shantotto was a playable fighter in Dissidia 2 representing FF11.

@theht: She was also unlockable in the first Dissidia.

Treasure hunting and daily primal quests sound good. Hopefully they'll be a way to earn some money. Get hyped for the Giant Bomb Housing party!

Now if only they'd implement something so I can actually see monsters and bosses in FATEs.

This made me laugh midway through gulping back some coke, nearly chocked lol.

I hope the fight is voiced and we get some mad rhymes being thrown out during the fight.
