The worlds of Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XI are coming together today for “The Maiden’s Rhapsody: Memories of an Unseen Realm” collaboration event. Final Fantasy XIV players can check it out now until June 22. The rewards are based around the main character from Final Fantasy 11 … if you complete The Maidens Rhapsody quests, you will get her full armor set … fans of Final Fantasy 11 will definitely want to take part, if they haven’t the last 2 times this event was held. This makes for the third… will it be the final time? Is anything ever REALLY final in FINAL Fantasy?

The Maiden’s Rhapsody 2020 Rewards

The rewards for the event all consist of armor pieces, which form a set.

You may recognise this set from Monster Hunter.

As you may know, Square-Enix and Capcom have been willing to please fans of each other’s #1 franchises in the past, with a crossover event that saw each other’s game worlds invaded by some of the largest, most fierce monsters that each game has to offer.

I was an active player at the time, and have fond memories of Final Fantasy from childhood, at that particular time I couldn’t really enjoy the event (life is a non-stop “event” full of challenges) – but I certainly saw the cool-factor and was happy for the happy fans;

Final Fantasy 14’s Behemoth piercing the skies of Monster Hunter: World and offering a generous range of rewards, including 4 New armor, new weapons … even new Poogie skins!

What about the Amatsu set then? Well this is what’s on offer:

Item IconItem Name
181872-amatsu-hachigane-icon-64x64-1Amatsu Hachigane
181875-amatsu-togi-icon-64x64-1Amatsu Togi
181878-amatsu-tekko-icon-64x64-1Amatsu Tekko
181881-amatsu-haidate-icon-64x64-1Amatsu Haidate
181884-amatsu-sune-ate-icon-64x64-1Amatsu Sune-ate

This might be your last chance to get these items; although since the event has occurred in the past, and here it is again…there’s also a possibility that if you do miss the event, you might be able to do it in the future.

If possible, do it – claim your possibly never-available-again armor – and flex in Red and White Tudor and Stuarts-looking garb.

If you’re new to Final Fantasy, or you have a stable of max level characters with expert-level casting rotations for every class, there’s a very small detail that may have eluded you. As a big fan of the Dark Souls series, this particular event which takes place right after character creation piqued my interest… something about it, possibly the Dark Souls vibe, possibly because of my experience in computer games programming… or maybe something cleverly implied in the quest text, made me wonder whether a particular mundane choice could have an impact on the game.
