Alexander - The Heart of the Creator, known by players as A11, is the third turn of the Raid Raid Alexander: The Creator in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward.


Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)


Heeding Roundrox's innocent words, Alexander spreads forth its wings of time, swooping you and your bewildered companions three years into the past. There, you witness with your own eyes—and, in a shocking turn of events, help to bring about by your own hand—the tragedy that befell Mide and her companions that fateful day. Is time truly naught but a circle—the past, present, and future long since preordained—as the mad goblin prophet would have you believe? In the face of daunting odds, you press onward, that you might yet seize control of your own destiny.

In-game Description


None can deny the wandering minstrel's inimitable way with words, nor the manner in which his penchant for embellishment and exaggeration has rendered your triumph over the primal Alexander all the more triumphant—and the insurmountable odds over which you did prevail all the more insurmountable. Reach back into your memory and relive your adventure inside the steel giant as it will live on in the hearts and minds of all who hear the tale!

Behind the scenes[]

The Cruise Chaser is based on the recurring summon Ark, which first appeared in Final Fantasy IX, where Alexander played a prominent role. Ark was based on the airship from Cruise Chaser Blassty, which is the namesake of the Final Fantasy XIV enemy.

Cruise Chaser Blassty is a sci-fi video game developed by Square Co., Ltd., in which the player controls a giant mecha in a war between Earthling rebels and an oppressive government which controls the entire solar system.
