There are a lot of players who talked about the difference between Dragon Quest X and Final Fantasy XIV. Today, let’s talk something about the two games. The first different things are: the game currency in dragon quest is called gold, while the currency in Final Fantasy XIV is called FFXIV Gil.
Many were surprised by the timing of the PC release of Dragon Quest X, even more so because it’ll come just a month after another MMORPG by Square Enix, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, will hit the shelves. Dragon Quest X producer Yosuke Saito isn’t too worried about internal competition, as he told Famitsu as part of an interview:
I believe Dragon Quest X is the perfect entry point for those that play a MMO for the first time. I don’t think we can compete with the historical legacy and the rich content of Final Fantasy XI, while Final Fantasy XIV has an user interface that makes it aimed to hardcore gamers. Dragon Quest X’s interface has less information at a glance, so it’s more user friendly right from the start.
Final Fantasy XIV characters can be leveled up by FFXIV Powerleveling service offering companies, but dragon quests x characters can’t be leveled in that way.
