Final Fantasy XI: Moogle Kupo d'Etat Walkthrough Tour
With Final Fantasy XIV on the way, many gamers have turned their
attention back to Square Enix and their previous MMO offering FFXI.
Luckily, the folks at Square Enix have just released their latest major
content addition to FFXI in the form of a Moogle Kupo d'Etat Evil in
Small Doses. The Ten Ton Hammer staff recently had the opportunity to
check out the content included in this mini-expansion and were
intrigued by what we found.
The man behind the storyline in "Evil in Small Doses" is Masato Kato, an individual that was integral in the original plot and direction for the original Final Fantasy XI, and he's been brought on board to tie up a lot of the loose ends that were left hanging with the original game. Masato sends players traipsing about the entirety of Vana'diel completing quests and learning more about the history of Vana'diel in the process. New spells have been added for the Blue Mage and the White Mage, and the Ninja has seen the addition of two new job abilities, transforming them into either a "tank" or "melee dps" master. A pair of new monsters have been added as well, and they're known as the Ruszor and the Gargoyle.
Along with the new pixie, field manual, and class updates, the Moblin Maze Mongers have also been adjusted. The novelty with the Maze Mongers was the ability for players to create their own "dungeons," but the developers have opted to add a little more character to the Moblins by giving them their own quest line where players can take on a Moblin trainee and level him up. It's a pretty streamlined quest - all you do is walk the Moblin next to monsters and he attacks them - but it's still a fun little, laid back quest that has the potential to give you a fairly nice item at the end of it.
Veteran players of Final Fantasy XI will certainly enjoy this additional content, but newer players shouldn't overlook the opportunity to take in some of the new systems as well, including the Moblin updates and the event systems. Plus, you certainly must enjoy all of the lovely Moogles.
