Honestly their classes confuse me. Some of them anyway...theraturge or something like that is that mage and then what about arcanist? If they have a summoner class that can actually summon different pets then that will be what I play...as well as a tank or healer as I'm really tired of not seeing end game content because Im' the wrong type of dps. GW2 had a good concept making every class viable. However I think you still need a sort of trinity set up. Perhaps like in Rift where all classes in soem way could either go heals, dps or tank.

in ffxi you just have macro with /fish or type /fish how is that a lot of menus and clicking?

Oh and I'm looking forward to the maruader/warrior type class and secondly the archer/brd type class. The brd in ffxiv reminds me more of what a corsair in ffxi was.

Also i see changes in UI,how clunky is it changing from class to class?

How viable is Summoner,in FFXI it was the tough to get high end Avatars,is it designed basically like FFXI where you can sort of get the lower Avatars relatively easy but the higher end ones are Alliance or vet group?

All of that is still under the NDA IIRC

They have made some changes as to how fishing will be affected by the weather and time of day. And there might be a function added to help forcast the weather to help the fishermen.

That's all I really remember Yoshi-P talking about it during the producer letter, I think there is more too it but they just weren't ready to release any new information on it yet.

Back in 1.0, when they first introduced XP chains, there was a way to powerlevel classes from 1 - 50 in 2 days.  By that time, I already had 4 classes at 50, so I took the other 3 to 50 as well.

 

Luckily, I will have arcanist (Summoner) to work on when the game is released.  I forsee a lot more classes added along the way.  I think it would be impossible to be active on all of my classes.  I have a family and a career.

 

I will likely focus on three classes.  Tanking, DPS, healing.   Depending on whether Arcanist is primarily a support class or a hybrid healing class, I will likely settle on Warrior for Tank, Mnk/Dragoon as dps (depending on class mechanics and fun factor, I will settle on one) and WHM for healing, unless Arcanist can also heal.   That should keep me really busy.

 

I've never be one to focus on casting/dps classes.   Archer/BRD is fun and I know a lot of people loved it in 1.0 but not my cup of tea.   DRG was a DPS powerhouse in 1.0.  I think it's going to be the melee version of BLM.  Sorta like a glass cannon that has huge burst damage but you have to watch your agro or else you're dead.

 

I also heard MNK class mechanics have changed significantly as well.    A lot of things to look forward to.

I'd like to give Monk a whirl, seems to be a bit more active with positioning, reactives, and seems to be able to do a bit more things like heal itself, off tank, etc and looks cool to boot

Hoping this goes smoother than 1.0 but I definitely want to roll monk. I am very excited because it looks like they got this game right this time

The new classes have not been showcased yet.  No one knows how they work, if they live up to ffxi.  The new combat system is much different so please, whatever you think the classes will be, don't get to excited when you are let down.  My experience with mmos is that if a company is too afraid to show something, there is a reason.

There is no chance unless you take one.

My level 50 Dragoon survived the fall of Dalamud ;P

 

I'll be playing him, but I am going to start levelling Arcanist/SUmmoner on him as well as soon as possible!

Having a pre-organized beta schedule does not mean the company is "afraid" to show the classes.

 

 

In beta three you can play the classes and jobs.  In beta 4 (open beta) nothing is capped or restricted.

 

Seems to me, free open beta for anyone who applies with no restrictions on content means they're not afraid to show what the game offers.

I agree with Yoshi-P in that I would also like to see more caster classes/jobs. I'll most likely be working my way towards White Mage at launch. It would be neat if they somehow incorporated some out of the ordinary classes though, like Time Mage, or Chemist.

I've been wanting to be a gladiator / paliden, and perhaps a bard aswell. I kinda was wanting to be a tank back in the day in ffxi, but never got around to it, so for ffxiv arr tankings gona be my main. Always wanted to tank dragons and NM's and whatnot. I did enjoy bard in ffxi to, so who knows in ARR i may be torn between bard / paliden.

As someone who put the orginal game disc in the bin, promptly followed by my foot stamping onto it, I'm extremely hesitant in making the same mistake again.

(Yep I did buy it after playing the original beta, with the hope that my -plus lots of other players- extensive beta test feedback reports - several pages in each one, had been acted on in some way). Ah well.

So, does anyone know if there is some kind of free trial period for ARR? Also, will this be a sub game, btp or ftp now?

And finally, is there an actual date for ARR launch?

 

One thing's sure, If there's no free trial option - even a week would do, then it will be Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Best Forgotten

Existing FF14 players will be given the game for free with a free month. Aside from that it is purchase + sub fee.

Really looking forward more so for expansion characters like Samurai and Ninja if they decide to add both of those. Other than that I will probably play Lancer the most because it resembles the Dragoon class.

To the person confused by the classes.

Thaumaturge is the typical mage class using offensive elemental magic.

Arcanist sounds more like a warlock type class. They come with a carbuncle pet and use damage over time and debuff abilities.

You unlock the Dragoon job playing Lancer.
