Final Fantasy XIV's Monster Hunter: World Crossover Has Begun

By Sam Quirke, 4 months ago
Last week we saw the dreaded Behemoth from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn land in Monster Hunter: World as part of the two franchises' crossover event. Now the favour is returned as Rathalos turns up in the Stormblood universe.

Final Fantasy XIV 4.36 update


We got the full details and trailer for the crossover last month, but to summarize: Level 70 players who have completed the Stormblood quest line will be able to undertake "The New King of the Block" quest and face Rathalos in an eight-player battle inspired by the mechanics of Monster Hunter: World. It can be attempted on Extreme difficulty for an extra challenge where only four players can participate. Take the monster down and you can earn the following:

  • Rathalos Armor Set – Equipment Inspired by Rathalos
  • New Minions – Poogie and Palico
  • New Mount – Ride Rathalos, the “King of the Skies,” throughout Hydaelyn
  • New Furnishings – BBQ Spit
Final Fantasy XIV 4.36 update


The new content is available now.
