Square Enix Collaboration Event Approaches

 The worlds of Final Fantasy XI, Final Fantasy XIV, and Dragon Quest X Online are preparing for another collaboration to celebrate the various successes of all three games! The teardrop slimes from Dragon Quest have found their way to Vana'diel again, but this time they've brought some unwanted company, she-slimes and metal slimes! It's up to you to capture these smiling jellies and return them to the Astoltia Ark in time for them to return home!

 Speaking of Vana'dielian trespassers, spriggans from Eorzea have returned, and native Moogles are asking for help to track them down and collect them before they cause too much trouble!

 As with the first collaboration event, special themed armor will be available upon completion of these various collection tasks, as well as new spirits for the Monstrosity battle system! So from March 18th through April 9th, be sure to help quell these otherworldly creatures!

Let us know what you think of this collaboration event over on the ZAM forums!

From Playonline.com:

Thanks to the overwhelming popularity of the first event celebrating one year of DRAGON QUEST X Online, the official release of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, and eleven years of FINAL FANTASY XI, we are pleased to bring you the second entry in this collaborative event!

Event Period

Tuesday, March 18, 2013, at 1:00 a.m. (PDT) to Wednesday, April 9 at 7:00 a.m.

DRAGON QUEST X ONLINE

The wandering sage Horro has once again boarded the Astoltia Ark to set sail for Vana'diel, where he hopes to buy ever more of its delectable treats. This time, the slimes made sure to get permission before boarding, but their cousins—the she-slimes and metal slimes—have snuck onboard too...

 

Event Details

1) Talk to one of the slimes in the following areas to participate:
Southern San d'Oria (K-9) / Bastok Markets (E-10) / Windurst Woods (H-11)

2) Catch slimes located in the wilds of Vana'diel!
Slimes can only be caught after adventurers get gooed-up with magic cast by friendly slimes located in the following areas:
East Ronfaure (G-6) / South Gustaberg (J-7) / East Sarutabaruta (G-11)

 

Players will be able to attack and capture slimes while under the influence of these grimy incantations. Capturing slimes will rewards players with slime coins.
* Players' levels will be reduced to one while under the effects of the slime magic.
* Players will be unable to attack or receive attacks from other monsters for the duration.

3) Trade coins for items!
Slimes located within city walls will trade the following items in exchange for slime coins:
30 coins:

* These items will become available for purchase once a player, his party, or his alliance has slain she-slimes or metal slimes. Metal slimes will occasionally appear when vanquishing slimes or she-slimes.


Players will also be able to acquire metal slime and she-slime spirits by fulfilling certain conditions.
Once acquired, trading one of these items to Suibhne in the Feretory while possessing a slime will enable the player to unlock the relevant type of slime.

 

FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn

Despite the moogles' best efforts to contain the spriggan threat, the long-eared beasties' cousins have now come to Vana'diel as well! Are they friend...or foe?

 

Event Details

1) Talk to one of the moogles in the following areas:
Southern San d'Oria (G-9) / Port Bastok (K-7) / Windurst Waters (F-9)

 

2) Catch spriggans infesting Vana'dielian wildlands!
Only those under the effects of mysterious moogle magic cast by moogles in the following areas are able to capture spriggans.
West Ronfaure (I-6) / North Gustaberg (L-8) / West Sarutabaruta (J-8)

 

When under the effects of the moogles' incantations, players will be able to clash with and capture the spriggans, thus receiving chartreuse, vermillion, or mauve stone shards.

* Players' levels will be reduced to one while under the effects of the slime magic.
* Players will be unable to attack or receive attacks from other monsters for the duration.

3) Speak to the moogle who started the event to participate in a mini lottery for special prizes using your chartreuse, vermillion, and mauve stone shards.

First prize: one item from the following list:
Purple Spriggan Coat / Red Spriggan Coat

Second prize: one item from the following list:
Purple Spriggan Club / Red Spriggan Club

Third prize: one item from the following list:
Green Spriggan Coat / Green Spriggan Club

Booby prize: one item from the following list:
Purple Spriggan Lolli / Red Spriggan Lolly / Green Spriggan Lolly / Spriggan Spark

* About the lottery
The odds of receiving higher tier prizes vary with the color of stone shard used. Mauve stone shards provide the best odds, followed by vermillion, and then chartreuse.

Furthermore, receiving third prize or the booby prize increases the odds of your next spin of the wheel resulting in first or second prize. These odds will reset when you receive either of the two higher tier prizes.


Players will also be able to acquire red and purple spriggan spirits and spriggan festishes by fulfilling certain conditions.
Once acquired, trading a spriggan fetish to Suibhne in the Feretory will enable players to possess spriggans. Further, trading a purple or red spriggan spirit to Suibhne while possessing a spriggan will enable the player to unlock the relevant type of spriggan.

* Spriggans can be unlocked by trading the slime spirit to Suibhne regardless of what type of monster the player is currently possessing.
* Unlocking a spriggan will not cause the currently possessed monster to lose any experience.
