How Final Fantasy XIV Works

1up writes: "Eorzea's nations used to be constantly at war with each other, but the advent of airborne battleships and other shockingly powerful weapons has created a state of détente throughout the land. The resulting peace has led to a wide swath of soldiers and mercenaries suddenly without a job, and so they're now forming guilds and calling themselves under a new name: adventurers.

That's the very basic plot behind Final Fantasy XIV, the PS3/PC online RPG that Square Enix revealed at this year's E3. Now Square Enix is ready to reveal more of the goods, and in this week's issue of Famitsu magazine, game director Nobuaki Komoto offered some of the first really concrete details behind the MMORPG's gameplay. Here are the details:"

The story is too old to be commented.

Good set up.

...and decided several months before the games release in NA on PC that I was going to be a samurai. REALLY REALLY EXCITED!!!!!

PS360WII2936d ago

haha nice! Yeah I'll be a mage no question about it. What is interesting is the job switch will be a heck of a lot easier then with FFXI. All you need to do is take a few different sets of equipment and you have your job system right there with you.

I just hope Monk is as awesome as ever in this one and that Dragoon's become Lancers instead. That job got nerfed in the first year with the Penta nerf way way way back many years ago, and it took me a long while after that to come to terms with it lol. It was great having 4 DRGS and 2 healers once they learned penta because you didn't need a tank. Enemies died so fast. :P

*Sits by twiddling fingers and rocks back and forth in a chair just waiting for this game to come out*

And where might my information on Elvaan's be >_<!

The more I see on this game the more I will think I will enjoy it. As long as I can play a blm/whm/rdm class I will be happy, hope to see you at launch of this game next year ;)

Of course like in FFXI I will play every single class because will I'm a sadist in that department.

EDIT: I hope they have the abiility for good macros of switching equipment, because it looks like that is going to be necessary like in FFXI, but on a larger scale(?).

Myst2936d ago

Yep, I'm hoping the same thing GamerMan, macros definitely were helpful in XI, I'll probably try to do everything just as well at least before coming to one class and settling with it.

I hope they add my Dragoons is this one. That and samurai were my favorite jobs, both at 75 also.. If anyone will buy this game like me send me a PM and we can hook up online. I already have some friends who are on FFXI that will jump to FFXIV when released.
