Final Fantasy XI Double XP Event and More

By Ashley Woodcock,
Square Enix's seemingly ever-lasting MMO, Final Fantasy XI, is still going strong to this day. Today however, is a very special day for the title itself, as well as for the true long time fans who still enjoy the game.

With today being March 11th, Final Fantasy fans will know exactly what that means. To celebrate this special day, there's plenty of events to get in on within the game that will give out extra XP, monstrosity XP and plenty more different types of drops. For those not sure on why today is so special, check out the reason why before taking a good read of what's featured in this special event:

Some are unaware that this day serves as a commemoration of all things XI in Vana'diel? Well, it is time to remedy that with a slew of promotions will pull the heartstrings of even the most jaded adventurers!
