Watching the video you see a lot of weird ships flying around. I'm wondering if they'll have a class that can fly these ships (sky pirate?) and carry their party members into sky battle. Just tossing ideas around.

I think its the opening movie and those are the air ships Cid created to travel to the new world. While traveling you are attacked by those dragons, and you ship crashes. scene fades,..... you wake up and ......you begin your journey. :)...me and my imagination....heh

Okay... This is not a Final Fantasy 11-2!

It's Final Fantasy 14!

It's not in the same world as FF11, when SE makes a sequel they call it FFX-2, or Advent Children ect... They will not give it a new number.

^^ But I do like your idea.

If it was FFXI-2 they'd call it Advent Tarus

I hope they keep the job system, I love it, I love that i don't need to make a new char and do all the same missions and **** all over again every time I want a change of pace . . . plus I'm a ******* DARK KNIGHT! . . . but anyway . . . I have faith SE.

Pilot or engineer could be cool for sure though o.o

Cid will for sure be in the game. He is in every FF. How about an airship for large LS/Guilds that can afford to build it? That'd be cool eh?

OMFG I JUST REALIZED I NEVER TYPE IN ALL CAPS BUT HOLY **** WHAT IF YOU CAN FLY IN FFXIV1/1?!!?!

That'd be sick. I think this world does have something to do with Vanadiel. It's not all the same characters and it's not the same place on the planet, but the races shown hint at it being on the same planet, maybe a different time. I think FFX-2 was more of an expansion pack to FFX (a sequel, yes but wasn't it the same main characters?).

Actually, I like the idea of jobs that don't shine solely in combat. Sure, anyone could fly a plane in the game, but only Pilots could do it really well. Maybe have a lesser Piloting ability in jobs like Corsair and Thief. Not all combat has to be the same.

Maybe even vehicular battles. Mages could do things like reinforce the ship with Red Magic, defend it with white, or blow enemies out of the sky with black magic. Physical jobs could work guns/engines or even have stations outside where they directly attack the enemy. Everyone shares HP (the actual ship) whilst the pilot controls movement, maneuvers, and can issue attack strategies via intercom/etc.

Actually... that sounds pretty cool.

That's pretty much what I was thinking. Hopefully you'll be able to give the melees (MNKs, WARs, THFs) a better job than loading ammo (be able to teleport to other ship/board ship) but I think this would be sick. To get the Pilot (Sky Pirate?) class a bit more realistic, they wouldn't be much good for any sort of fighting.
