Do you all think that there will really be so few classes. Is no one else sad like i am over this? and also have you heard about there plan to replace experience with something else. It all sounds sad to me but, i am still going to play. i just want to know what others feel about this.
There are 4 disciplines but there is the armory system.
They are two different things.
We already know that players will learn skills through weapons, so I think that our ability to learn skills won't be dependent on our 'class', but rather on our choice of weapon.
To that end, any weapon, or combination of weapons, that you'll use will define your class.
Mix and match and learn the skills you want.
As far as classes are concerned, I think there will be just as many classes as there are possible skill combination from weapons. I think it's going to be very open ended.
By any chance recall FFXII (if you played it). Any character could learn any license and their starting stats were almost all the same. No one was automatically designated "healer" or "archer". Anyone could be good at magic and anyone could be good with any weapon.
Instead of SE handing us a bunch of 'jobs' and making us choose, this time I think they are giving us more of an option to create our own.
Of course, exactly how skills are acquired and used with different weapons will remain to be seen. Can someone find a weapon that makes use of both melee skills and magic skills? Will dual-wielding be available?
Another scary thought is that with so few jobs maybe the max level will be low like 20 or something. I don't know i am just to anxious about this game what if the world is small..... What if everyone will be wearing the same armor.... how much would that suck.....
There will be no levels in FFXIV.
The world was described as being slightly smaller than the world of FFXI, but the game is still in development.
