Job Search... FFXIV-style! Follow

Let's speculate jobs in FFXIV based on the concept art!

The art is on display on the official site:

In my opinion, what seems plausible are, from the left to the right (not all included):

A) Mithra dancer (vague, could be generic armor or anything fanciful)

B) Hume female white mage (possibly, but really only guessing from the staff/club/wand she is carrying--but her outfit maybe suggests another mage class, or again it could just be generic)

C) Galka dark knight (this is a little vague, but his armor is completely black, and he seemingly carries a great sword or some large-hilted weapon)

D) Human white mage (I'm just assuming this girl, or boy for that matter, is a hume--but they are clearly a white mage by any FF estimation)

E) Hume black mage (as obvious as the white mage, but racially and sexually ambiguous yet again--how could we have an FF without black and white mage, anyway?)

F) Elvaan dragoon (the polearm just cries out dragoon to me, as well as the general character of what is visible of her armor, but this is another wild guess)

Well, that's it for my speculation. What does everyone think about the other characters? And also, do you any racial-job associations will be carried over from FFXI? Like, for me, Galka Dark Knight seems iconic, and so does Elvaan Dragoon--I guess just based on the job quests and world. I wonder how much like Vana'diel the new world will be...

I saw a taru WHM, taru BLM, hume BLU, hume THF, mithra DRG, etc... looks like same jobs as before. If they rework em and add a few, or maybe take some out and replace em with the real thing (i.e. goodbye sch hello geo), it'd be cool. I'm not a DRG but give em magic already SE. :D

Because the FFT artist is doing the Art Direction for this game, I would bet his taste is going to be reflected in the classes somehow... but I'm not sure how...

I saw a samurai way, way there in the back. Could be wrong though.

This post seems more fitting for this message.

From the foreground characters, if I had to guess (From left to right)

Dancer, Summoner, Red Mage, Bard, Warrior, Onion Knight, Scholar, White Mage, Corsair, Blue Mage, Paladin, Black Mage, Dragoon, Ranger, Dark Knight.

Not so sure on all of them ( like Scholar).. just a "best Guess" if you will.

I agree there will be a Beastmaster-type job but I have this sinking feeling they'll change the name to "Fairy Master" and you can only charm fairies by shooting out giant pink hearts while sounding like a woman faking an ******.
The devil's in the details...
